Ports

  • Venice
    Venice

    Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage site. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway. SeaDream does offer Land Adventures when overnighting. You can also contact our destination specialists should you need a private arrangement, transfer or hotel recommendation.

  • Hvar
    Hvar

    Hvar is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. The island of Hvar is somewhat unusual as it is blessed with a large fertile coastal plain and fresh water springs. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by mild winters and warm summers with many hours of sunshine. Guests have an option to kayak down the coastline on one of our land adventures or take an independent hike up to the fortress to have some incredible views of the picturesque harbor. You also have an option to bike across the island to Starigrad and meet up with the other guests on the land adventure called “The best of Both Worlds".

  • Dubrovnik
    Dubrovnik

    Jutting into the southern Adriatic Sea coast, Dubrovnik—dubbed the “Pearl of the Adriatic”—is perhaps the most picturesque city on the Dalmatian Coast. A key Mediterranean maritime power from the 13th century, Dubrovnik has preserved its storied mix of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces, and fountains. Its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site adorned with the ancient city walls and Rector’s Palace. SeaDream anchors off the walled city as a port of call and tenders directly to the town gate.

  • Kotor
    Kotor

    Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. In 1979 the Bay of Kotor, City of Kotor and the surrounding territory have been listed in the UNESCO Heritage as a Cultural Site. SeaDream usually navigates close by the small islands of St. George and Our Lady of the Reef. The Bay of Kotor stretches 28 km and is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. It is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe (though it is actually a submerged river canyon called a ria). SeaDream typically docks steps away from the town. SeaDream has arranged a few different Yachting Land Adventures. One of them is a walking discovery and the other will show you the heritage and countryside of Montenegro. For the active guests, there’s incredible biking along the coast as well as a hike up to the fortress. On occasion, SeaDream may dock in the bay and tender directly to the town. We regret that watersports are not allowed in this protected area.

  • Corfu
    Corfu

    Corfu is the second largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea and considered to be the greenest. The municipality includes the island Corfu and the smaller islands of Ereikoussa, Mathraki and Othonoi. Its Greek name, Kerkyra or Korkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, an important Greek mainland river. In 2007, the island's old town was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. SeaDream docks at the cruise port and offers guests an assortment of varied Land Adventures. A shuttle bus will be arranged to the old town, and the mountain bikes will be available for independent exploration. Perhaps the most popular attraction on the island other than the impressive old town is the Achillion Palace the summer palace of Austria’s Empress Elizabeth. It truly is worth exploring.

  • Pylos, Navarino Bay
    Pylos, Navarino Bay

    Nestled in the Ionian Sea’s Bay of Navarino, Pylos is home to one of the best-preserved Mycenaean palaces in Greece, known as the great Palace of Nestor described in the Homeric poems.

  • Chania, Crete
    Chania, Crete

    Located in the southern part of the Aegean Sea, Crete features abundant natural beauty, intricate architecture, and archaeological sites worthy of exploration. In the old port, visit Castello a Mare, a Venetian fortress, and the Palace of Knossos, one of the largest and most significant Bronze Age finds in the region. On the northwest coast of the island, explore Chania, known for its 14th-century Venetian harbor, narrow streets, and charming waterfront restaurants. At the harbor entrance stands a 16th-century lighthouse with Venetian, Egyptian, and Ottoman influences; the former monastery of St. Francis houses the Archaeological Museum of Chania. In true SeaDream style, we anchor in the harbor and tender guests right into the heart of town.

  • Mykonos
    Mykonos

    Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands. It is part of the Cyclades group and lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometers (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 meters (1,119 feet) at its highest point. Mykonos is so incredibly beautiful; it is not surprising that it has become one of the most desired destinations in the world. When you also add the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the sophisticated nightlife and the historical treasures of the nearby UNESCO Awarded Delos you’ll have the recipe for an unforgettable holiday. SeaDream usually anchors just of the famous windmills and tenders directly to the old town. Guests have a few organized options including the Sacred Island of Delos. Others may simply want to explore the island’s incredible beaches, boutiques, clubs and churches independently.

  • Milos
    Milos

    Perhaps providing the most diverse and dramatic coastline of all the Greek islands, sheltered, horseshoe-shaped Milos boasts more than 70 beaches and is heralded as the location where Venus de Milo (the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite) was discovered. Milos has been named “the island of colors” thanks to its volcanic origin, which offers beaches and waters with a variety of colors and distinct beauty. Due to the volcanic origin of its ground, Milos presents an impressive coastal morphology and diversity. There are white-yellow beaches, bays with pebbles surrounded by stones, and white, red, yellow or black rocks. While discovering your favorite sand upon which to relax, don’t overlook Sarakiniko’s volcanic white cliffs and Papafragas’s emerald-green swimming holes and caves—shaped by the island’s unique minerals, including obsidian, barite, and sulphur, which happily bubble up in abundant hot springs.

  • Athens (Piraeus)
    Athens (Piraeus)

    Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port located within the Athens agglomeration, in the Attica Basin. It is 12 kilometers from the municipality of Athens, considered the fourth largest and is the third most populous amongst all the municipalities of Greece. Now a peninsula, Piraeus, originally a rocky island, was developed in early 5th Century B.C. when it was initially designated as Athens’ import and transit trade port. It is the largest marine-based shipping center of Greece, one of the largest ports in Europe, and considered the second largest passenger port in the world. Inhabited since the 26th Century, it wasn’t until the 6th Century B.C. that Piraeus began catching attention. The land of Piraeus was essentially impassable, flooded by the sea most of the year until centuries passed and the flooding ceased. By the 5th Century B.C. it became a navy base for the Athenian fleet for the natural harbors and the strategic potential they carried. Athenian general and politician Themistocles fortified Piraeus’ three harbors Kantharos, Zea and Munichia, created ship houses and completed his walls in 471 B.C., which led to the port becoming a great military and commercial harbor. There are many archaeological sites, points of interest and entertainment available in Piraeus. Most famous for its tavernas and cuisine, several popular events take place in Piraeus, such as the Ecocinema International Film Festival, the Maritime Festival, the Piraeus Rock Wave Festival and the Three Kings’ Way Festival. There are also many theaters, including the Municipal Theater, the open air Veakeio Theater, and the Menandreio Theater. Museums in Piraeus include the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, the Merchant Shipping History Institute Exhibition, the Panos Aravantinos Decor Museum, the Georgios Averof Museum Ship and the Museum of Electric Railways. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!

  • Mykonos - The Sacred Island of Delos

    Description

    This Yachting Land Adventure arrives at Delos Island by a boat from Mykonos. Delos is the island of lights and the mythical birthplace of the God Apollo. Admire the interesting monument of the Agora, the treasures of the various cities, the theatre and the Sanctuary of Apollo.

    Not far from Mykonos lies UNESCO listed Delos, the island of light, the mythical birthplace of the God Apollo and the Goddess Artemis. Its name means “that which appears" and, according to mythology, the island appeared amid the waves so that Leto would have a place to give birth to Apollo and Artemis. Delos Island, an area of only five sq. km (almost 2 sq. miles), was once a very important religious, cultural and commercial center. Today, the island is a piece of land covered with archaeological sites: fallen columns, sections of the famous mosaics which adorned the houses of the rich, a stadium, and tiers of seats from a theatre. Among these ruins, five marble lions in a row still stand. These were the guardians of the sacred lake, still gazing out to the east waiting for the sun to rise.

    Other interesting monuments, spread over a wide area, are: the Agora, the treasuries of the various cities, the Sanctuary of Apollo, the Theatre, the Sanctuary of the Foreign Gods and the Sacred Mt Cynthus. Leaving the sacred island of Delos you re-board your local boat for the 45-minute return to Mykonos town.

    Notes

    This land adventure operates from Mykonos only if the yacht does not call at Delos on the same itinerary. This visit includes a two-hour walk across uneven surfaces at the archaeological sites so please wear comfortable walking shoes. The departure time will be adjusted according to the departure time of the local boat schedule from Mykonos to Delos. There is very limited shade at the site so bring protection from the sun. There is a coffee kiosk on the island as well as restrooms near the pier on Delos. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity.

    Explore the impressive highlights of Milos on this concise orientation Yachting Land Adventure.

    Your experience starts with a visit to the classic Cycladic village of Plaka, with cobblestone streets and white stone houses accentuated with bougainvillea flowers and located 250 meters above the Aegean Sea. Stroll through the village and admire the traditional architecture with its stunning view of the sea, particularly from the courtyard of the Korfiatissa Church.

    From Plaka, reboard your coach for a drive to the idyllic landscape of Papafragas, one of the most impressive sites of Milos. From the top of the rock, it resembles a huge natural swimming pool, and its three caves were used as pirate hideouts during Byzantine times. From the overlook, admire the remnants of the imposing Cyclopean wall of ancient Phylakopi site, one of the most important settlements of the Prehistoric Aegean.

    Your next stop will be Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white stone sculpted by volcanic eruptions. This startling beautiful, out-of-this-world spot is one of the island’s many geological wonders and perhaps one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades. You have the opportunity to walk down to a point where you will encounter this one-of-a-kind beach and take photographs. You will feel as if you have landed on the moon (optional swimming).

    Then, reboard the coach for the return drive to the yacht in Milos.

    Notes

    If you desire to swim during the stop at Sarakiniko, please bring your towel from the yacht and wear your swimming clothes under your regular clothes, as there are no changing facilities. Please also return to the bus as dry as possible after swimming since it is not allowed to enter the bus with wet clothes.

    A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change. Final departures times will be announced onboard.
