Guide to Greek Island Charters and Cruises

As anyone who has done it will tell you, the best way to visit the Greek Islands and the coast of mainland Greece is by sailboat. There are a large number of yacht companies, skipper-owners, flotillas, cabin cruises and even day sails cruising the Aegean and Ionian seas of Greece. This page will help you decide what kind of boat you want, where to go, when to go, and even who to go with. To begin with I recommend reading my article about a trip I took a couple years ago called To Sail in Greece. Then come back and click through the various resources and recommended companies. You may want to bookmark this page because many of the links lead off the site and you may not find your way back.  You can also e-mail me if you have any questions. If you find this page useful please share it with your friends on Facebook and Google+ using the buttons at the bottom of the page. There is also a link to join my Facebook Group.

For those people who want to sail in Greece but want to speak to an experienced advisor in the USA who can help them find the yacht and skipper that is most suitable for them look no further than David Econopouly at David has been matching boats and owners with clients for the last 15 years and works with some of the best skippers in the Mediterranean. He also offers bare-boating, flotillas and cabin charters, which are like cruises but on smaller boats, that are able to go to smaller islands and even make unscheduled stops in small coves for swimming and diving. If you have lots of questions to ask before you charter a boat then is a good place to start.
