Ports

  • 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!

  • Syros
    Syros

    The small island of Syros offers the quintessential Greek island holiday experience without the crowds often found in the more well-known Greek Isles. With pristine blue waters, Syros’ breathtaking beaches are sure to impress. Kini, Vari, Azolimnos and Yalissás Beach are among its most famous options to bask in the sun. Beyond its beautiful beaches, Syros is part of the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea, and is filled with culture and history. The island is also commonly recognized for its Aegean cuisine which features several local specialties, making Syros a culinary destination.

  • 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.

  • Hydra
    Hydra

    There is one main town on Hydra, known simply as "Hydra port". It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. The charm of Hydra town certainly lies in her rich history, beautiful port and waterfront unspoiled by motorized vehicles. The island offers a rugged charm and some spectacular scenes and makes the perfect place for some self-exploration.

  • Corinth Canal (Transit)
    Corinth Canal (Transit)

    So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times; the first plans being from 602BC. The Roman Emporer Nero actually started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. The canal we transit is 6.3 kilometres (3.9 mi) in length. Before the canal, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage.

  • Itea (Delphi)
    Itea (Delphi)

    Itea is a small town situated on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth, 2 km west of Kirra, 8 km southwest of Delphi. The town has a nice beach along with some shops, cafes and restaurants. It allows the closest access to the incredible sight of Delphi which is within the top three archeological attractions in Greece and in 1987 was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. It is believed the Zeus wanted to find the center of the Earth so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi – becoming the “navel/center of the earth”. SeaDream has arranged the very best guides and vehicles from Athens to enhance this incredible visit further. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best-preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. After the museum, there will be free time to visit the village of Delphi. SeaDream has the option of docking along the small pier in Itea or anchoring off to provide water sports options. This is dependent on availability as well as a number of guests visiting the archeological site.

  • Zakynthos
    Zakynthos

    The island-municipality is named after the son of a legendary Arcadian chief and a son of Zeus, Dardanus. The Venetians nicknamed the island “the flower of the East”, and it possesses many beautiful beaches and rich vegetation with agricultural products such as citrus fruit, olive oil, grapes and currants. It is known for being mentioned in Greek Mythology as the island where Dardanus’s son Zakynthos first inhabited. Zakynthos is also referred to its Venetian name “Zante”. As expected of any part of Greece, the culture and history of Zakynthos is rich and extensive, dating back to the Paleolithic Age (Old Stone Age). Oldest mentions of the island date back to the Mycenaean period, and ancient Greek poet Homer included Zakynthos in his famous works, the Odyssey and the Iliad. Zakynthos was the first established independent democracy in Greece for 650 years prior to several invasions that led to Byzantine rule. The Kingdom of Sicily and the Ottoman Turks attempted to rule Zakynthos, however it was the Venetian Republic that maintained authority, despite subsequent Ottoman raid attempts and little peace experienced internally, as the existence of classes led to the first social revolt in modern history, The Rebellion of the Popolari. The French were awarded Zakynthos when the Venetian Republic was disbanded in 1797 as per the Treaty of Campoformio. That is, until the Russo-Turkish fleet invaded the island in 1798 and the Septinsular Republic was formed under the Ottoman empire. The Septinsular Republic was eventually ceded to Napoleon’s First French Empire, however the Treaty of Paris resulted in the gradual shift of rule to the British after the Greek War of Independence. Around 1848, radicals gave rise to varied Ionian efforts to unite with the Kingdom of Greece, which would be granted in 1864 as Britain sought to stabilize rule for George I. The World Wars would take a toll on Zakynthos, with emigration and starvation reducing the population in the First War, and joint efforts from Nazi Germany and Mussolini’s Italy would result in Italian rule. When fascism fell in Italy, Germans took the Ionian Islands for one year. Most interesting was Mayor Karrer and Bishop Chrysostomos of Nazi Germany, who refused orders and protected the Jewish community in Zakynthos, which resulted in the survival of all Jews on the island. The two would receive honors and be commemorated with statues in the town’s synagogue. Unfortunately, Zakynthos became subject to major earthquakes in 1953, and a few subsequent ones which caused great destruction, leaving only 3 important buildings: the church of St. Nicholas, St. Dionysios Cathedral, and the National Bank building. Tourism truly thrives as there are many beautiful splendors in Zakynthos. The island is well known scuba diving in surrounding caves and for Navagio Beach, which name comes from a famous shipwreck in 1980. Tourists enjoy Porto Limnionas Beach, Blue Caves, Keri Caves, Turtle Island, Banana Beach, and the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle habitat, the Zakynthos Marine Park in the Bay of Laganas. Zakynthos is additionally interesting because the cuisine isn’t typically Greek: Rich, thicker sauces accompany dishes that incorporate more poultry and meat than other Greek cuisine. There is also a rich wine culture on the island; Comoutos Winery is one of the oldest running wineries, established in 1638, and the island’s most famous wine, Verdea, is one of the only two wines in Greece under the PGI Category. Guests are urged to explore the Venetian castle on Bochali Hill, to get a panoramic view of Zakynthos Town.

  • Syros - Walking Tour of Syros Town

    Description

    Admire the architecture and elegant beauty of the buildings in the cosmopolitan town of Syros.

    Syros is a cosmopolitan island with a rich history and the administrative centre of all the Cyclades. Starting at the port of Ermoupolis, you will walk with your guide to the Archaeological Museum of Syros which is housed on the west side of the City Hall megaron. The museum exhibits work from the Hellenistic and Roman period as well as sculptures from the islands of Amorgos, Ios, Kea and Naxos. It also houses finds from the prehistoric period discovered at the acropolis of Chalandriani. Next, you walk a short distance to the city’s main square and visit Syros’ city hall, the work of the well-known Austrian architect Schiller. Its foundations were laid in 1876 and the building was completed at the end of the 19th century.

    Continue to the next stop at the church of Saint Nicholas, the patron and protector of Syros seafarers. The church’s temple was built in 1848 and the construction work lasted until 1905. Its basilica style stands out majestically with its blue dome and bell tower, while the ship comes into the harbor. It was named "Rich" to distinguish it from the "Poor" Saint Nicholas of Ano Syros, which was the first Orthodox church on the island. Then travel to the Church of the Dormition of the Virgin, which houses a very important work of art, that of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary by Domenicos Theotokopoulos (El Greco). The icon was, in all probability, transferred from Venice sometime during the past century.

    This excursion concludes with a visit to "Sykoutris" a traditional loukoumi workshop, which has been operating since 1928 and is one of the best in Syros. Loukoumi is the traditional dessert of the island, made of sugar and water boiled together and it is said that Syros loukoumi is unique, due to the local water used. At the end of this excursion you may opt to return to the yacht or remain in town to further explore Syros.

    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.

  • Corinth Canal (Transit) - Transiting The Corinth Canal

    Description

    So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal.

    The Corinth Canal was built in the late nineteenth century and created a new sea route by linking the Corinthian
    and Saronic Gulfs. Until that time, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage. However, in antiquity the Greeks had devised a way of solving the problem of communications between the two seas. In the late seventh or early sixth century BC, the tyrants of Corinth constructed a paved road called the Diolkos, which led from Schinous on the Saronic Gulf to Poseidonia on the Gulf of Corinth. The Dioikos was 3-3.5 m. wide, and it was paved with blocks of limestone set in a deep layer of sand and gravel. Along this ran the olkos vehicle on which ships were borne overland from one side of the Isthmus to the other. Sections of the Diolkos can still be seen today; the deep parallel ruts in the road, 1.50 m. apart, are the marks left by the wheels of the olkos.

    The ancient Greeks had of course, considered the possibility of digging a canal through the Isthmus. The first to look into the matter was Periander, tyrant of Corinth, who drew up a plan for a canal in 602 BC. Subsequent planners included Demetrius Poliorcetes, Julius Caesar and Caligula. These plans were later adopted by Nero, who in 67 AD announced to the spectators at the Isthmian Games that he was going to join the two seas by digging a canal through the Isthmus; indeed, he went so far as to cut the first turf himself, with a golden pick, and to carry the first basket of earth on his back. But his plans came to nothing, as did those of Herodes Atticus, the Byzantines and the Venetians in later times.

    The canal we see today was built in 1882 -1893 by Greek and French engineers using the most advanced machinery of the day. General supervision of the enormous undertaking was in the hands of General Stepan Tupp, aide-de-camp to the King of Italy. The project was completed by the Greek Corinth Canal Company.

    The canal is 6,343 m. in length. It has a width of 24.60 m. at surface level and 21.30 m. at the seabed, and in some places its sides are 79 m. high. The canal is crossed by road and railway bridges, while communications between Central Greece and the Peloponnese are also served by two ferries in the form of submersible bridges, one at either end (Poseidonia and Isthmia).

You will walk through the cellar to see where the wines age and mature; plus enjoy a tasting of some of their fine wines with snacks.

    Following the winery visit you continue down the road for a visit of a modern olive oil press mill. The Aristaion Mill is a traditional family business located in Lithakia Zakynthos. Their history began in 1850 with a traditional animal movement press, part of which survives still today. They later changed to metal and then hydraulic presses. As technology evolved, in 2008 they upgraded once again to new technology with eco-drive for processing the olives. A guided tour will explain to you step-by-step the production process. Learn about the production of olive oil from the wooden press in the 18th century to the modern centrifuge machines, and two modes of today. At the end of the visit you will enjoy a tasting of olive oil with homemade bread and local olives. An olive oil soap will be given to you as a gift before you depart the olive oil press. Then reboard your coach for the return journey back to Zakynthos town.
