Sailing trip in Saronic Gulf

The Saronic Gulf is the largest one in the Aegean Sea. Athens and Piraeus, the biggest Greek port, stand on its coast. Do you want to travel through the legendary waters of Greece? Do you dream to follow Odyssey tracks or make your own route? We will tell you how to rent a sailing or motor yacht and organize the first-rate vacation.

Features of yachting in the Saronic Gulf

Many yachtsmen choose Athens as their starting point and travel from the Saronic Gulf to the Ionian Sea or to the Cyclades. But even without leaving the gulf, one could organize an unforgettable cruise.

Here are examples of popular yacht routes:

  • Alimos — Poros — Hydra — Leonidia — Porto Heli — Methana — Alimos. This 7-day route is open almost all year round;
  • Zeya — Poros — Hydra (Mandraki) — Hydra (St. Nicholas Bay) — Ermioni — Porto Heli — Methane — Zeya. This 7-day route is open from April to October.

Within a week you could visit both the Saronics and the Cyclades.

Here are the possible route variants:

  • Alimos — Kea — Serifos — Milos — Hydra — Poros — Alimos;
  • Alimos — Vourkari — Merikas — Poros — Palaia Epidavros — Port of Aegina — Alimos.

The Saronics hosts professional and amateur sailing regattas, the most famous of which are the Catamarans Cup and the Blue Cup.

What do you need to know about renting a yacht in the Saronic Gulf?

As well as throughout the Aegean Sea, a strong Meltemi wind blows here. Its gusts are weaker than in open waters, still, the inexperienced skippers should watch out. What is more, the water traffic is quite heavy in the region.

Athens and Lavrio have a wide choice of private rental yachts.

They are sorted between few marinas:

  • Alimos, Olympic — ships that are rented without a crew;
  • Flisvos, Zeya — ships that are rented with a crew.

If you have any doubts which yacht to choose. Or, you want to clarify the prices and terms of a charter. The Sailica specialists are happy to give an advice to anyone who wants to hire a ship. We will explain to you how the booking system works and what details you should take into consideration. Write us in the messenger and we will contact you.

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!
