On a flotilla holiday you sail separately in your own chartered yacht, but meet-up with the other yachts in the flotilla each evening at an agreed location. You have the benefit of an experienced crew on the flotilla lead boat who are there to help you throughout your flotilla holiday; each skipper in the flotilla can benefit from their local knowledge of weather and wind, harbours and eating places and should there be any problems on passage, help is close at hand. This therefore increases safety for all and bestows a feeling of security that makes a flotilla holiday more relaxing, certainly for the skipper!

Flotilla holidays are ideal for:

  • Families with younger children who are able to meet and play with other childen on the flotilla each evening after the day’s sail
  • Those new to yacht chartering and skippering a yacht, or those who simply appreciate having a flotilla lead crew available for advice & assistance to allow a more relaxed sailing holiday
  • Those who simply enjoy the social aspect of being able to charter their own yacht, yet make and meet friends from the flotilla each evening

Greek Sails’ flotilla sailing routes

A flotilla holiday must be exactly what it says on the can - a holiday! In truth, if our clients just wish to sail all day, they would do better to select a bareboat yacht charter where they can sail as much, or as little, as the wish.

For a perfect flotilla holiday, Greek Sails has planned three sailing routes; one north and two south of Poros, which combine all the elements of a fulfilling flotilla holiday. Each route allows for daily lunchtime/mid-day swimming stops and you can opt to combine routes if you wish to stay for more than a week (the eastern Peloponnese route is already a two week route, but you could still combine that with a week in the Saronic Gulf to make a three week flotilla holiday if you wished!).

The Saronic Gulf flotilla holiday sailing route

On our northern flotilla holiday sailing route into the Saronic Gulf you can find the peace and intimacy of the small fishing villages of Vathi and Perdika; the tranquil tree-lined bays of the little-inhabited island of Angistri; the splendour of the ancient theatre of Epidavros with its perfect acoustics and finally, the cosmopolitan port of Aegina, with easy access to the beautiful temple of Aphaia.

The Argolic Gulf flotilla holiday sailing route

The southern flotilla holiday sailing route into the Argolic Gulf is likewise interesting and varied; the individually unique islands of Hydra and Spetses; the intimate harbours of Ermioni, Leonidhion and Astros on the mainland coast.

And at the head of the gulf lies Navplio, an elegant Venetian city, once capital of modern Greece and gateway to Agamemnon’s Mycenae.

The East Peloponnese flotilla holiday sailing route

The extended east Peloponnese flotilla sailing route takes two weeks, giving time to visit additional places in the Argolic Gulf.

Therse include spots such as the harbours of Sambatiki, Tyros and Vivari before continuing down the east coast of the Peloponnese. Here you can visit stunning locations such as majestic bay and cliffs of Kyparisi, the unlikely and hidden fjord of Yérakas and the wonder of the monolithic rock of Monemvasia; known as the ‘Gibraltar of the East’, most probably the most wonderful spot you’ve never heard of!

A great variety of fascinating destinations all within a safe and protected sailing area set in a grandiose setting; the perfect flotilla holiday recipe!
