Ports

  • Valletta

    Valletta, The Fortress City, is Malta's capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and commercial heart of the Islands. Valletta is named after its founder, the respected Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. The magnificent fortress city grew on the arid rock of Mount Sceberras peninsula, which rises steeply from two deep harbours, Marsamxett and Grand Harbour. Ottoman forces numbering 40,000 laid siege to the island from May to September 1565, without success. The heavily outnumbered army of 700 knights and around 8000 Maltese regular troops took refuge in the fortified town on the Grand Harbour. Started in 1566, the city of Valletta was completed, with its impressive bastions, forts, and cathedral, in the astonishingly short time of 15 years. The city is busy by day, yet retains a timeless atmosphere. The grid of narrow streets boasts some of Europe's finest art works, churches and palaces. Walking around Valletta you'll come across an intriguing historical site around every corner: votive statues, niches, fountains and coats of arms high up on parapets. Narrow side streets are full of tiny quaint shops and cafes, while Valletta's main streets are lined with larger international branded shops for fashion, music, jewelry and much more.

  • Xlendi Bay, Gozo Island

    The famous fishing village of Xlendi has now become a major resort town. The assemblage of high-end hotels is low-rise and perfectly framed to get unobstructed views of the beautiful bay. Xlendi has long been a tourist favorite for a beach fling, exciting snorkeling adventures, and diving experiences.

  • Taormina (Etna) Sicily

    SeaDream yachts anchor in the bay of Giardini Naxos and offer fantastic views of recently awarded UNESCO Natural Site of Mt. Etna (2013) as well as Taormina perched on the cliffside. Shuttle bus service has been arranged to transport guests from Giardini Naxos to the entrance gate of Taormina town. For the SeaDream active guests, office led hikes and bike rides could also transport you to Taormina town or continue up to Castelmola which provides amazing views of the surrounding areas. Perhaps the “must do” adventure here would be to ascend Mt. Etna with your fellow SeaDreamers. Kindly check the Land Adventure tab for the specifics. Other options include an incredible and authentic feast at the Godfather Villa. This “SeaDream Exclusive” Land Adventure requires a high minimum to operate, but it’s worth every penny! As we are anchored and if conditions allow, we will offer water sports both in the morning and in the afternoon. Multo Bene!

  • Otranto

    The easternmost town on the Italian mainland, Otranto enchants with its medieval architecture and relaxed beachfront atmosphere. As you approach the modest façade of the town’s 11th-century cathedral, admire the delicately carved rose window, a preview of the wonders found within, which include an extraordinary mosaic floor known as the Tree of Life. The imposing Castello Aragonese invites exploration both along the ramparts and in the dry moat, a perfect vantage point from which to admire the fort’s massive cylindrical towers. Sun-lovers flock to the town’s beaches, which wrap around a protected cove lapped by gentle waves. While roaming the Old Town’s warren of narrow streets and cozy squares, you’ll discover enticing shops and eateries housed in age-old stone buildings. Later in the day, both residents and visitors congregate on the seaside promenade for their passeggiata, a typical Italian stroll that affords marvelous views of the sparkling sea. Stop at one of Otranto’s many excellent restaurants for a taste of orecchiette, which amusingly means small ear in Italian and is a popular regional pasta often served with savory ricotta.

  • Ksamil

    Cherish a rare opportunity to visit this almost unknown, picture-perfect destination, a resort village uniquely situated within Albania’s Butrint National Park. Embraced by the narrow Strait of Corfu to the west and the saltwater Lake Butrint to the east, Ksamil offers ample opportunities for exploration both on land and in the sea. Near the main beaches, several small islands emerge from the impossibly crystalline water, readily accessible by kayak, paddleboat or even an energizing swim. Within the park, well-tended paths lead to the ancient Greek and Roman city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site that contains an enchanting 3rd-century BC theater still in use today. Other highlights include the Roman forum, the Sanctuary of Asclepius, an early Christian basilica and the remarkable mosaic floor of the baptisterium. You’ll discover that the Venetians also left their mark, constructing an imposing square tower and a castle that houses an absorbing archeological museum. From atop the fortifications, revel in far-reaching panoramic vistas of the park’s glistening waterways, forested hills and the distant mountains beyond.

  • Fiskardo, Kefalonia

    Fiskardo is a village located about 54 km north of Argostoli and a district of the city of Erisos.The coast around Fiskardo is mainly rocky with numerous pebble-beached coves. There are numerous viewpoints in the area around the village that offer panoramic views of the Ionian Sea including Daskalio island, Ithaca, northwestern Aetolia-Acarnania and the island of Lefkada.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Spetses

    This small Greek Isle is a best-kept secret. White-washed buildings, popular seaside cafes and bars, and a central piazza make Spetses a quintessential Mediterranean yachting port. Visitors to the island will enjoy visits to the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, idyllic Mediterranean beaches, and the island’s historic churches. You’ll step back to a simpler time as you quickly realize that Spetses is mostly automobile-free, so be sure to enjoy a traditional horse-drawn carriage ride along the seashore.

  • Nafplion

    Nafplion is a seaport town in the Peloponnese region of Greece that expands up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf. The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. This is simply one of the most beautiful towns in the area of Argolis (in eastern Peloponnese) as well as one of the most romantic cities all over Greece. SeaDream has the option to anchor allowing water sports or to dock in the heart of town offering amazing access. Some guests will climb nearly 1000 steps to the fortress. Others may want to participate in the wine tasting adventure or to Visit Mycenae.

  • 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!

  • Hydra - RIB Boat Adventure to Poros Island

    Description

    Departure from Hydra port. After aproximately 20 minutes you will arrive at Tsilivinia islets where you have the opportunity to swim in a breathtaking natural bay in sparkling blue waters which are unique in the area.

In antiquity Poros consisted in fact of two islands, Sphería and Kalávria, but the last explosion of the Méthana volcano in 273 BC radically changed the morphology of the area. Sphería was cut off from Méthana, and in this way Póros took its present-day form. During your free time in town of Poros you may enjoy a cup of coffee or local delicacies in one of the coffee shops or small seafront restaurants. If you choose to stroll around do not miss the trademark of the island, the historic Clock tower.

    Cephalonia Island is famous for its unique geological phenomena such as caves and underground lakes.
    Starting from Fiskardo, you take the main road and head south to the small village Karavomylos where the mysterious, 40,000-year-old, under-ground lake of Melissani is located. After an earthquake, the ceiling of the cave fell in, creating what may be one of the most impressive sights you have ever seen.

    After visiting the lake, you will travel to the close by Drogarati Cave. The Cave was Discovered 300 years ago when a part of the cavern was destroyed by an earthquake. It descends to a depth of 200 feet and features an impressive interior of stalactites and stalagmites.

  • Xlendi Bay, Gozo Island - The Best of Gozo

    Description

    Discover the essence of Gozo on this intricate weave of heritage, history and religion that makes up the DNA of this tiny island population. This Yachting Land Adventure starts with a drive to the Ggantija Megalithic temples in Xaghra, which are one of the most important archaeological sites in the Maltese islands and on the Unesco World Heritage list. The well-preserved site consists of two temples dating back to between 3600 and 3200 before Christ. Considered as one of the oldest free-standing monuments in the world preceding Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids, they represent a phenomenal culture. Enter from the newly constructed interpretation center that helps put a context to this mysterious civilization. From here walk with your guide to explore the site via an external pathway that provides visitors with unique views of the natural landscape that surround Ggantija.

    Next proceed to Victoria, Gozo’s capital city. This town is still called Rabat by the locals, here you can see the Arab and British influence interwoven so well that to the locals it appears the norm. Take a brief walking tour and also enjoy some free time to visit the Citadel or relax at a local café. Then re-board the coach for a panoramic drive outside of town where you will have a photo stop at the mushroomless Fungus rock and the inland sea, seen in Dwejra, followed by a stop at Ta’Pinu Basilica, a centre of Pilgrimage. The origins of this church date back to 1883, when a peasant woman claimed to have heard the voice of the virgin Mary talking to her in the chapel, later becoming a basilica. Reflect on the discoveries of the beautiful island of Gozo as you return by coach to your waiting yacht.

  • Nafplion - Mycenae & Wine Tasting

His diligent work exposed the famous Lions Gate, the entrance to the city which contains the shaft burial graves of some ancient nobles. A short distance away is the Beehive Tomb, named after the shape of its roof.
