No set itinerary for a typical week aboard your private luxury yacht.

Once you’ve settled into your cabin and perhaps had a glass of something restorative, your Captain will bring out a chart (map) of the area to work out the perfect route for you and the weather.

If you’re after a week of hopping between secluded bays, or if you are more interested in the hustle and bustle of the Greek outdoors town lifestyle, your Captain will help prepare the ultimate route for you.

Although there is no routine, a typical day may involve a leisurely breakfast on one of the islands, a move to a different anchorage and some water-sports, followed by lunch and then have fun sailing in the afternoon when the wind picks up. In the late afternoon, you will move toward your evening’s destination to moor for dinner.

Sailing is of course weather dependent. The Captain will carefully look at the forecast before and during the trip and plan the route accordingly. There may also be days where he considers it necessary to be port bound if the forecast is looking adverse. We will always err on the side of caution, however the chances of bad weather for more than a day a week in this area are very low.

Our most popular trip starts and finishes in Corfu and will cruise the Northern Ionian Islands.

For those who have sailed with us before and wish to go somewhere new or those wishing to explore further afield can sample our South Ionian or One Way itineraries.

Your Itinerary

The start of your typical week aboard.

Day 1 - Welcome Aboard your Luxury Yacht.

Arrive at Gouvia Marina and settle in to your floating home for the week.

We’ll get you out of the marina as soon as possible to find a nice anchorage for a late afternoon swim.

Your captain and chef will settle you into life on board – and there’s no such thing as a silly question!

Argentous in Petriti

Day 2 - Corfu Magic.

Wake up inside a postcard and embrace the beginning of your new routine.

Explore a bit more of North Corfu before heading to the fishing village of Petriti for the evening.

A beautiful piece of protected water behind Corfu lets you get used to your yacht before enjoying the first exhilarating sail to the South of the island.

Dine ashore on locally caught fish of the day.

Day 3 - Stunning Sailing.

By now you are settled into the swing of life on board.

Sail to Paxos and Anti-Paxos, marvelling at how your beautiful yacht glides almost silently between the islands.

Stop over in Lakka, for the bluest water – or perhaps Gaios for a cosmopolitan evening in town.

Day 4 - Caves, Coves and Beaches Galore.

The islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos are a phenomenal playground for yachts.

With caves, coves and beaches galore you can spend all day gently meandering around the islands exploring.

Try your hand at water skiing in the most stunning location and snap plenty of photographs at the Blue Caves.

Enjoy dinner at anchor, prepared by your wonderful chef.

Day 5 - The Day is Your Own.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from Paxos, sail North to the collection of islands on Greek Mainland called Sivota Mourtos.

And if you can’t tear yourself away spend another night under the stars in Longos…so many possibilities!

Whatever you choose…wash down the day with a Captain’s cocktail on the bow of your yacht.

Day 6 - Heading North.

Have a quiet morning reading, swimming and taking in the morning vista before raising the anchor and hoisting the sails.

Enjoy an upwind sail back to Corfu, surfing waves and enjoying your powerful yacht.

Stop in Boukari, a fishing village on the base of Corfu.  Eat some of the freshest fish to be found in the islands and snorkel along the shoreline.

Day 7 - Best till Last.

For your last evening on board your crew can take you to the UNESCO jewel of Corfu, the Old Town.

Moor under the fortress and spend the evening wandering the streets of Corfu absorbing that wonderful Greek hospitality.

Another option is visiting the famous Durrells ‘White House’ which is now a taverna.

Enjoy a final evening under the stars dreaming of your next sailing holiday!

Bow of Aurous on a typical week

8 - Goodbye for now.

Enjoy a final Mediterranean breakfast in the sunshine whilst you finish your packing.

Your crew will liaise with the shore team to make sure your transfers all run smoothly and you are taken to the airport or to your onward hotel in style!
