The captain has prepared an itinerary for you to discover the most beautiful and authentic islands of the Cyclades. Thanks to the night and morning sailings, you will enjoy your cruise and your stopovers to the full. So, are you ready to experience a cruise that will unfold according to your desires?
DAY 1: Marina Zea (Athens) - Cape Sounion
The crew will meet you between 14:00 and 15:00 for your boarding. Upon arrival, you will be warmly welcomed by the crew who will lead you to your cabin. You will then go to the sun deck for the welcome cocktail. Meanwhile, the captain gives the order to cast off to Cape Sounion and admire the incredible temple of Poseidon (dating from the 5th century BC) from the sea. This will also be the time for a first dive! Dinner on board.

DAY 2: Cape Sounion - Sifnos - Milos - Kimolos
Morning arrival in Sifnos, an island that stands out for its traditional whitewashed houses. Enjoy some free time to explore the island at your own pace, following its paths or taking an optional excursion. You will discover its amazing church of the "Seven Martyrs" perched on a cliff above the sea. Lunch at leisure in the island's capital, Apollonia. You can participate in a Greek cooking class (optional) or try a small local tavern.
Back on board, head for Kimolos. On the way, you will stop at the beautiful beach of Sarakiniko (north of Milnos). Later on, you will reach Kimilos and dock at the port of Psathi. You will wander through the town and pass the famous "syrmata", boat houses carved into the rock by the fishermen. Dinner on board.

DAY 3: Kimolos - Ios - Santorini
You head to Ios and make a refreshing first stop in the south of the island, on the beautiful beach of Manganari. Our (optional) excursion takes you to the tomb of Homer, the 8th century BC Greek poet to whom the famous works of The Iliad and The Odyssey are attributed before visiting Chora, the island's capital. Lunch on board, then sail to Santorini.
On arrival, we offer to explore the island on a vineyard tour or a guided tour of the old town. At the end of the day, the crew will recommend the perfect place for a romantic dinner.

DAY 4: Santorini - Schoinousa - Koufonissia
This morning you will have the choice of several (optional) excursions, a visit to the archaeological site of Akrotiri and the Venetian castle "La Ponta" or a hike to the top of the volcano... Lunch at sea while the boat sails to the island of Schoinousa for a relaxing break.
In the afternoon, you will reach the beautiful island of Koufonissia, literally "hollow island". Its name was given by pirates who believed the island to be hollow because of its many mysterious caves... You will have the chance to explore them by yourself. Dinner at leisure.

DAY 5: Koufonissia - Despotiko - Naxos
Your day begins with a short stopover on the uninhabited island of Despotiko, located southwest of Antiparos. Its clear water is ideal for a thrilling snorkelling session. Lunch on board in front of this heavenly setting.

Enjoy the afternoon walking around the island at your own pace or join one of our optional excursions to discover the secrets of Naxos (archaeological site of Kouros of Apollonas, olive oil museum, guided hike...). You can also participate in an initiation to Greek dance. Dinner at leisure.

DAY 6: Naxos - Delos - Mykonos
You disembark at Delos in the morning. This mythical island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is said to have been the birthplace of Apollo and his sister Artemis. The history of the island will be revealed to you during our optional excursion. For lunch, the crew suggests to drop anchor south of the popular and festive Mykonos.
An afternoon dive can be arranged. Don't miss the "Little Venice" with its colourful houses built on the water. It is the perfect place to relax on a terrace while watching the sun set over the horizon. Dinner at leisure.

DAY 7: Mykonos - Serifos - Kythnos
Head to Serifos, a small island full of charm still unknown to tourists. You will quickly be seduced by its wild side, its windmills, its chapels and its whitewashed houses...

And what about participating in a Greek jewellery workshop with a local craftsman (optional)? Lunch at leisure.
In the afternoon, the boat continues its journey to Kythnos. The captain will drop anchor in Kolona Bay, considered the most beautiful bay on the island. To conclude this cruise in style, the crew will prepare a delicious barbecue on the beach (weather permitting). Return to Athens at night.
