GREEK ISLANDS ITINERARY

DAY 1
Arrival at Marmaris Marina & embarkation as from 15h:00. Captain’s briefing. Distribution of cabins, tidying up the personal luggage and the provisions in the holds. Dinner and possible evening night at the city center of Marmaris.

DAY 2
Breakfast, sailing out of the port (1h), and "safety at sea” briefing… The journey begins, little swim in the blue open sea and first experience of navigation under sails (4h), we will leave the Turkish territorial waters and enter Greece from the port of Rhodes. Arrival and mooring in mythical port of Mandraki famous for being one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world thanks to the colossus who used to guard the entrance of the port. Discovery of Rhodes and its intact medieval intra-muros town... each of us will be free to visit the city at his own rhythm and taste... Relaxing in the cafes, visiting the museums and admiring the medieval art works... or the topless beauties of the island while swimming & sunbathing on the famous sandy beaches... Dinner in one of the cool inner city restaurants and party... or relax on the boat in Mandraki.

DAY 3
Breakfast and departure... Sailing towards the island of Alimia, during this navigation we will pass by the island of Rhodes & we’ll admire its windward side where hundreds of wind surfers and kite surfers intersect forming a colorful ballet. Small break in (K...S…)* a protected bay with a tiny fishing port. Sailing & arrival to Alimia, the scenery is wild and splendid, anchoring in a beautiful bay in crystal clear water next to an abandoned charming little Greek church. For dinner we will make a BBQ onboard under the stars.

DAY 4
Breakfast, swimming in a magical setting, Snorkeling. Discovery of Alimia… This small peaceful and uninhabited island was a German base during World War 2. Today we can find graffiti and paintings that German soldiers had left on the walls of their bunkers during their protracted stay on this island ... Nature has reclaimed the island but you can still see several military installations and bunkers. Navigation (1h) and arrival to Khalki, anchoring in the small port, central nucleus of the island ... Khalki is one of my favorite Greek islands; No one will resist the charm of its narrow shaded streets hiding some taverns with delicious traditional mezze surrounding our little harbor. Ballades and discovery of the village ... Sundowner on the terrace of a tavern watching the sunset ... the variation of colors on the surrounding hills and the small port are superb. Dinner in a tavern on the ground and tasting local delicacies.

DAY 5
Breakfast on board or ashore. Victualling (fresh traditional village bread, delicious fruits and vegetables… we’re ready to sail again! ) Sailing (2h) to Antitilos where we will drop the anchor, snorkeling and lunch on board sheltered by this wild and uninhabited island with a particular shape ... It is 3 km long with a width of 50 meters. Navigation (1h30) in the direction of Tilos, arriving to the small traditional port of Nivadia, the main town of the island, with its legendary fishermen. Tilos being far from the touristic circuits has preserved its authentic and sincere character¸ this little village and its inhabitants live in perfect harmony with nature ... Time seems to stand still and it feels good to lay on the terraces.

DAY 6
Breakfast and Sailing (4h) to Symi… The wind filling our sails will carry us gracefully toward the majestic bay of Symi ... Discovery of the most photographed island in Greece. We will be berthing in the heart of Symi island surrounded by houses perched on hills, narrow pedestrian streets and staircases encrusted with multicolored houses are an irresistible appeal for wandering around ... Camcorder or camera in hand, in an attempt to capture the magical light which bathes these architectural gems, so simple and beautiful. The island used to be very wealthy because of the sponge fishing, that was the specialty of the islanders. Today Symi lives mainly from tourism, but you can still feel the old days and you’ll find many dealers of natural sponges and superb shells. Dinner in the best tavern on the island (one of the Captain’s secret places)
