Sailing trip in Volos

The bay of Pagasitikos is a circular bay. It is surrounded by Mount Pelion. Near the bay, there is an exit to the Aegean Sea. 

 

Pelion is a land of incredible beauty. There is a high mountain with rich fauna and flora. Tourists can relax on the stunning beaches. 

 

The Gulf of Pagasitikos is ideal for relaxing sailing. There is a relatively calm sea, light winds that blow from Pelion. Sailing is popular here. It will give you the opportunity to discover the beauty of the many unspoiled coves with their turquoise waters. 

 

You can sail on a yacht on the waters of Tsastheni or Nisa. You will remember this walk for a long time. We suggest trying local delicacies. Pelion's signature dish specialfay is served in Kato Gatsea or Afissos. Fresh tuna tastes best in Cottes. We suggest trying crayfish spaghetti on the small island of Trikeri.

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!
