DAY 1: Lefkas
Meet at 6pm in the Lefkas Marina (about 20 min drive from Aktion Airport) to board your boat. Once you have settled in, the admiral crew will present you with the plan for the week and safety instructions. You will have the evening to familiarise yourself a little more with the boat, get to know the other passengers or simply visit Lefkas, the capital of the island.

DAY 2: Lefkas - Vathi (Meganisi) (about 12 miles)
It's time to set sail to Vathi, a picturesque village located on the north-east of Meganisi Island. During the crossing, you will pass the small islet of Forti, the perfect place to take your first dip. Upon arrival in Vathi, you will discover charming whitewashed houses. Hiking enthusiasts will appreciate the paths that run along the coast, offering stunning views of the Ionian Sea. Afterwards, you will have earned a refreshing drink in one of the many local taverns.

DAY 3: Vathi - Vasiliki (Lefkas) (about 17 miles)
The crew will hoist the sails and follow the south coast from Lefkas to Vasiliki. This sheltered bay is considered one of the best windsurfing spots in the world. Perhaps you will be tempted by a short introductory session? You can also go ashore and walk along the coast to relax on Agiofili beach. The place is also suitable for climbing and offers incredible viewpoints of the surrounding landscapes. Are you tempted to try it?

DAY 4: Vasiliki - Fiskardo (Kefalonia) (about 11 miles)
You head south towards Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian islands. You drop anchor in the north of the island, in the small port of Fiskardo. Strolling through this ancient fishing village, you will discover 18th century Venetian houses. You can also relax on its pebble beaches (e.g. Foki Beach) or take out flippers, masks and snorkels to explore the seabed. There is no shortage of taverns and restaurants here!

DAY 5 : Free sailing
Today, you have the day to sail wherever you want. From Fiskardo, you can sail along the coast to the south of the island, stopping in peaceful coves or go to the island of Ithaca and follow in the footsteps of Ulysses. The small islands of Atokos and Arkoudi are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the wilderness. The flagship will of course remain at your disposal should you need it.

DAY 6: Abelike Bay (Maganisi)
This morning we head north to Meganisi for an anchorage in the beautiful bay of Abelike. Green and authentic, it has been preserved from houses and other constructions. Nevertheless, you will find some taverns and restaurants to refresh yourself. It offers a superb snorkeling spot thanks to its clear and warm waters. It is also the perfect place to share a barbecue with all the crews of the flotilla. At the same time, you can admire the sunset.

DAY 7 : Abelike Bay - Lefkas (about 12 miles)
You weigh anchor and start sailing back to Lefkas. Along the east coast of the island, you will find a small quiet cove to enjoy your last lunch at sea. You continue on your way and arrive at the marina by 5pm at the latest. You will then have free time to sip a glass of ouzo or go hiking in the hills of Lefkas. And why not conclude this cruise with a delicious dinner with all the crew?

DAY 8 : Lefkas
Disembarkation is scheduled at 9am.

We also offer other flotilla cruise itineraries.

    Please note: national identity cards issued to adults between 1 January 2004 and 31 December 2013 will still be valid 5 years after the expiry date (indicated on the back). Nevertheless, we strongly recommend that you use a passport rather than an identity card whose validity has expired.

    This information is subject to change by the authorities of the country visited. It is not uncommon for border crossing rules to change. We therefore strongly advise you to refer to the "travel advice" section of the France Diplomatie website: https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs/.
    Nationals of other countries should enquire about formalities at the consulate of their home country.

    Provisioning is not included in your package however, we offer you to do your shopping (food and drinks) before your arrival. We offer different types of packages. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
  • What is a flotilla cruise?


    Cruising in a flotilla consists of sailing with other boats (monohulls or catamarans) while being guided by a flagship. On board this ship: a skipper, a technician and a hostess will be at your service if necessary (harbour manoeuvres, anchorage...). You will be given daily briefings on your sailing, stopovers, weather conditions, etc.
    The other advantage of this type of programme is the freedom of movement. Indeed, if you wish to go to a particular place, you will be able to slip away for a few hours without any problem (by warning the flagship upstream of course).
    The flotillas are for everyone, whether you are novice or experienced. Indeed, your boat hire can be done with or without a skipper.
