With 15,000 kilometers of coastline, it is natural that Greece is a nation of seafarers. For many centuries, Greeks have plied the seas in wooden boats with tall sails. EcoAthens continues in the ancient style with a fleet of traditional wooden sailing yachts that take guests on cruises in the Aegean Sea.
In a country with so many islands, one sees many ships at sea. What sets EcoAthens apart from the crowd is our innovative concept to include active and leisure activities on our cruises. If you only want to pursue leisure activities during the cruise you have that option with such activities as sight seeing, wine tasting, cooking classes, yoga and other events to enrich your Greece experience. Also available in case you feel like it are active activities, such as hiking, biking, and walking tours. “Toys” on board include bikes, fishing gear, snorkeling gear, sea kayaks. Our history as long time tour operators provide us the professional expertise to offer these additional activities to your sailing experience.
If you have a free day, come aboard the yacht for a One Day Cruise to islands within a two hour sail from Athens. The boat holds up to thirty passengers. Seven cabins can be used for changing into bathing suits and after-swim showers. The One Day Cruise makes a perfect event for group escapes, company retreats or private parties.
For seasoned sailors and cruise travelers, EcoAthens offers Multi-Day Cruises for durations of three, five and eight days which accommodate groups of up to twelve passengers. Guests overnight in six double cabins with en suite bath. Sailing between islands in the Argo Saronic Gulf take two to three hours.
Athens’ best kept secret is the Attica Peninsula, the terrain which surrounds Athens on all sides.VIEW DETAILS
