Sailing trip in Preveza

Yachting in the Preveza region is suitable for beginners. There are no strong winds and excellent visibility and the marinas are well maintained. For mooring try the Marina: Preveza, Cleopatra, Ionian, Aktio Marine. The marinas have yacht shops, supermarkets, cafés, and restaurants.  

 

There are many attractions in Preveza. We recommend seeing the fortified castles of Buka, Laskar, Pantokrator, the Archaeological Museum of Nikopol (5 km north of Preveza), the Museum of Church Art. Be sure to see the Villages of Parga, Filippiada, Lygia. 

 

In July-August, within the framework of the Nikopol Festival, the Balkan Festival of Folk Dance and Music is held. The International Choir Festival (first decade of July and first Sunday of July) is also held right there. At the end of August, on Sardine Day, guests are treated to wine and fried fish. 

 

In addition to sardines, we recommend you try the local delicacy avgotarajo. The appetizer is mullet caviar salted and sun-dried. It is wrapped in a wax film in the form of cylinders. The price for caviar prepared in this way reaches 600 EUR per kilogram. This makes Avgotarajo the most expensive dish in Greece.

 

Preveza is famous for its unique beaches. We recommend swimming at Kiani Akti, Psataki, and Agioi Apostoli in the Gulf of Amvrakikos. On the Ionian side, there are beaches: Alonaki, Kalamitsi, Mitikas and Monolithi. There are pebbles as a cover, and sea urchins live among the stones. We recommend swimming from a yacht or wearing sandals.

Full recommendation. Great service & support. We chartered a Beneteau 45 in Athens for our trip around Peloponnes. Great service and perfect customer support from beginning to the end. Due to corona we had to postpone our trip - Sailica managed all the communication with the charter agency and negotiated a great new deal for us. This was already the 2nd time we charted with Sailica and it won't be the last time. Full recommendation

I took Dufour Grand Large 560 at Croatia using online yacht rental service sailica.com It's easy to use their mobile app with fair prices and enough quantity of boats which suits to my parameters. Their managers assisted me through whole communication with charter company. It was pleasant to receive a small gift – free of charge transfer from airport to marina. We didn't request it and appreciate their overexpected level of service.

Amazing 1 week in Turkey! I sailed with Sailica on a tour in the gulf of Fethiye in Turkey. Overall it was a great experience and a great crew, even if I did not know them before. The area is amazingly beautiful and if you go in April you can avoid the crowds. The skipper was very proficient and knew what he was doing. Highly recommended!

Great company! The guys answered all our questions which were very important since it was our first sailing experience. Moreover, they advised us not only on a charter but also on the tour itself. This was not the responsibility of the company, but we needed help and the company managers helped us for free. I highly recommend the team. The guys are really reliable, proactive and customer-oriented.

Excellent trip to Croatia! The trip was organized on an excellent level since the very beginning - from the yacht search to the trip itself. The team was fast and responsive. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to hang out with family on a beautiful yacht or catamaran!

Super Beratung - sehr schnell wurde für mich ein passendes Boot in der Türkei gefunden. Sehr guter Preis, und ich konnte einen Skipper aussuchen, den ich bereits vom letzten Mal kannte. Volle Empfehlung!
