Ports

  • 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

    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.

  • Santorini

    Santorini, officially named Thira, is the southernmost Greek island that is within the Cyclades archipelago, in the southern Aegean Sea. Part of the regional unit Thira, the municipality of Santorini is comprised of the island Santorini, Therasia, and other uninhabited islands of Christiana, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Nea Kameni. The geological history of Santorini is quite complex due to the area’s volcanism and is currently a water-filled caldera: a rectangular lagoon that is surrounded by three steep cliffs. The name Santorini is a contraction of the name Santa Irini, which is based on an ancient cathedral found in the island’s village of Perissa. This name was given by the Latin Empire in the 13th Century. During the Ottoman Empire, Santorini was called “Santurin” or “Santoron”, and in early times, it was named Kalliste, Strongyle, and Thera. Santorini is the site of the Minoan Eruption (also known as the Thera Eruption), one of the largest eruptions ever in recorded history. The origins of Plato’s story of Atlantis is believed to have a connection to this eruption that destroyed the early settlements on what was formerly a single island. The descriptions found of Plato’s Atlantis strongly resembles Thera, and with seismological, archaeological, and volcanological evidence, these claims are further supported. There is also speculation that the eruption is related to the Exodus of the Israelites, as well as causing the plagues described in the Bible in ancient Egypt. The economy is sustained by two principal industries: tourism and agriculture, and has recently been voted as one of the world’s most beautiful islands in various outlets such as the Traveler’s Choice Awards in 2015. The wine industry in Santorini is becoming more relevant as well, made up of Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani grape varieties, which is best exemplified in Vinsanto (“holy wine”) which contains all three Aegean varietals. Although Santorini is highly arid, it’s unique ecology and climate allows it to grow unique and prized produce, such as cherry tomatoes, Lathyrus clymenum (a legume), and capers. Thus, tourists indulge in local specialties such as Brantada, Fava, and the traditional dish Santorinio Sfougato.

  • 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)

    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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Amalfi

    Amalfi is a picturesque town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of Italy. With its incredible views, it is the central town that makes up the very famous and UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana). Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture including; its cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano.

  • Capri

    Capri may very well be the most popular island on the planet. It is a beautiful Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Bay of Naples. Capri town is the island’s main population center. The island has two harbors, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate village of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west. From there, visitors can continue up to the highest point Mt. Solero. Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer including the famous Grotta Azzurra, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. SeaDream has put together most of the sights into one adventure called “Discovering the Island of Love” Kindly check the Land Adventures tab for more information. There’s also some great hikes available on the island, check with the activities team on board for details.

  • Civitavecchia (Rome)

    Civitavecchia is a major port located in Rome, primarily utilized for maritime transportation of goods, as well as a fishing port. The commune’s name means “ancient town” and is one of the “Motorways of the Sea” in the Mediterranean, functioning as one of the main links between the mainland of Italy and Sardinia. The ancient name of the port was “Centumcellae,” first mentioned in a letter written by Pliny the Younger in 107 A.D., although scholars debate on whether the name was about the number of rooms of the Trajan Villa, or the number of natural creeks on the coast. Civitavecchia is a part of the Lazio Territory, an area which was confirmed to have social groups since pre-historic times, and the modern town was built over a pre-existing settlement of the Etruscan people in 107-108 B.C.E. (who debated to have founded Rome). In the beginning of the 2nd century, the harbor and town of Centumcellae were simultaneously developed by Emperor Trajan in the territory of Aquae Tauri. As the town became more popular for ships traveling westbound, the Thermal Baths were constructed on the hill of Ficoncella. Centumcellae flourished in the Imperial Age, and by 538 A.D., it had become a Byzantine stronghold. In 728 A.D., it became a member of the Papal States. The Saracens raided Centumcellae many times in the 9th century, prompting Pope Leo VII to have a newer and more secure settlement built by 854. The town, then known as Civita Vetula, was under the rule of several lords, and the Popes temporarily lost control during the French Rule in 1798-1815. In 1870 it entered the Kingdom of Italy. Civitavecchia was severely damaged during WWII, destroying many of the ancient monuments including Forte Michelangelo, which would be rebuilt in the 1950’s. Popular points of interest include the Forte Michelangelo, Terme Taurine, and Cattedrale di San Francesco. There is a wealth of Roman and Vatican architecture and tourists are encouraged to visit many of the museums and take the cultural tours available in this important sea port.

  • Amalfi - Augmented Reality visit to Pompeii

    Description

    Travel from Amalfi, through mountain roads toward Pompeii while also admiring Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano located about 15 miles southeast of Naples and the cause of death for Pompeii.

    A flourishing civilization, buried for 1,700 years, Pompeii is possibly the most famous excavation site in the world. It has been brought to life again through the new technology of augmented reality. Now you can see how the citizens of the greatest empire the world has ever known actually lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank and died.

    Special headsets will be provided in order to show Pompeii as it once was - you are immersed in a 3D world of ancient Pompeii where history comes to life right before your eyes!  At each point of interest, you will put on your headset and experience at the same time how that site used to be 2,000 years ago and how it is now.

    Entering Pompeii by the Sea Gate we are soon in the Agorà, surrounded by temples, porticoes and law courts. 20,000 people lived in this provincial town, of whom 2,000 perished in the horrifying eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Twenty feet of ashes and pumice stone covered Pompeii, and much of this has been removed during the last 200 years to reveal all the details of everyday life: the steppingstones are there to help you across the street in the rainy season. The mosaic floors and the brilliant frescoes which so delighted the Pompeians shine forth in all their undiminished glory. Explore the baths and theatres, the wrestling ground and the luxurious villas with their gardens, even plaster casts of the locals at the moment of asphyxiation are there for our inspection.

    At the conclusion of your experience, enjoy a soft drink and a taste of pizza before you will reboard your transportation for the drive back to Amalfi and your yacht.

  • Santorini - Akrotiri Archaeological Site & Oia Village

    Description

    On this land adventure the picturesque village of Oia and one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Mediterranean: Akrotiri Archaeological site. Could Akrotiri be the lost city of Atlantis?

    One of the reasons Santorini has attracted the world’s attention is the excavation at Akrotiri, which reclaimed a whole prehistoric Minoan city from the volcanic ash. The prehistoric site of Akrotiri is on the south-western tip of the island and was discovered in 1967 by Professor Spyros Marinatos. The city was buried by the Theran volcanic eruption in the middle of the second millennium BC.

    Over the years, excavations have brought into light a remarkably well-preserved site with two and three-story homes decorated with marvelous wall paintings and frescoes, an advanced drainage system and many interesting objects, artwork, pottery and furniture which give a picture of a society which was very well organized and at the peak of prosperity. This was interrupted suddenly by the eruption of the volcano, which buried the entire city. An ambitious modern bio-climatic roof top structure protects this important archaeological settlement where excavation works are still in progress.

    After exploring the excavations with a guide, ride to the northeast part of the island and its most picturesque town, Oia. Built high up on the ridge of red rocks, it offers breathtaking views of the blue Aegean. Take a stroll around the narrow streets with the old beautiful houses and the tiny picturesque shops. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the caldera cliff and wander in the narrow streets for shopping or a cup of coffee during your free time in the village.

    The guide visit ends in the town of Fira. Wander along the edge of the caldera for amazing views or wander through narrow streets with the various shops. When ready, take a cable car or walk along the path down to the small port of Skala Fira for tenders back to the SeaDream yacht.

  • Itea (Delphi) - Elaionas Village and Olive Oil Tasting

    Description

    Delphi Valley hosts more than 1.5 million olive trees with some of them being older than a 1000 years old! In this valley, archaeologists have found the remains of wild olive trees from Ancient times. The valley is recognized by UNESCO as a worldwide unique landscape and is today protected.

    Some days when the wind is blowing and the sun goes down the trees look silver green and almost melt with the color of the sea, that is the reason why French visitors started calling the valley “la mer des oliviers” meaning “the sea of Olive Trees”.

    Ride to the heart of the olive fields towards the picturesque village of Elainonas, home to 300 people. The name of this village “Elaionas” literally means “Olive grove”, it is built on the ridge of a rocky hill surrounded by olive trees. In Elaionas visit the Orthodox church of Agios Vasilios with it flourishing beautiful little garden.

    Then participate in an olive oil tasting workshop under the shade of a plane tree in the picturesque traditional “kafeneion” of this village. The olive productsof the tasting are all products of the Kanatas family who have been producing olive oil for more than five generations. Today they own the award winning and certified brand: “Mer des Oliviers”

  • Itea (Delphi) - Incredible – UNESCO Awarded Delphi

    Description

    For sheer grandeur of natural beauty combined with ancient ruins, there are few spots to rival UNESCO-listed Delphi. Your guides are waiting just for you so we hope to see you on your way to the Oracle... In antiquity, Delphi was one of the world's most important religious centers. The Sanctuary of Apollo attracted a host of pilgrims who came to consult the Oracle. Even now an aura of mystery surrounds these sites, exposed on a rocky slope. An approximate 40-minute motor coach drive through the region offers a fast overview of the local flora before arriving at Delphi. 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 according to legend marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. A fantastic journey back in time and a huge visual treat await our SeaDream guests.

    Notes

    To appreciate this beautiful sanctuary of Apollo, it is necessary to walk up a gently sloped path known as the “Sacred Way”. Please wear flat and comfortable walking shoes. Sun screen and hats are recommended. Water bottles will be available at the gangway, please make sure you carry a bottle with you.

  • Fiskardo, Kefalonia - Best of Cephalonia

    Description

    Revel in the highlights of Cephalonia such as the amazing Melissani Lake and the remarkable cave of Drogarati, while enjoying scenic views and a Greek lunch in a Greek village.

    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. Boats will wait for you at the shore to take you around the blue-green waters of the lake and the boatmen will amuse you as they will compare the stalactites to various animals in a humorous way.
    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. Reaching the cavern’s interior by a spiral staircase, you will stand awestruck at the scene that greets you, accentuated by carefully placed, concealed lighting. A second chamber, called the Chamber of Exaltation, boasts superb acoustics and hosts concerts for many people.

    Heading north, you pass by the area of Myrtos Bay where there is a photo stop and glimpse of the most beautiful and unique beach in Greece. Next stop is at the tiny picturesque village of Assos, built on the neck of an enchanting peninsula. Admire the tiny houses roofed with red tiles and the Venetian fortress crowing the hilltop of the village. Here you can stroll the picturesque little streets and browse the shops during free time, after enjoying a delicious Greek style lunch at a village restaurant before heading back to the SeaDream Yacht in Fiskardo

  • Otranto - Salento’s Coastline Discovery

    Description

    Enjoy a scenic 3-hour Yachting Land Adventure onboard a comfortable and well-equipped “Hydra” boat with swimming opportunities at 2 stops. Departing from the port of Otranto, you will head north on this discovery along the Adriatic coast. Salento’s spectacular coastline will surprise you with its turquoise waters, lush vegetation, white cliffs and hidden beaches.

    Cruise by quiet and untouched beaches nestled between rocks and deep inlets. See sheltered coves with sheer cliffs and the erosion effects from the sea. You will enjoy a stop to swim in the warm water at a sandy beach located in between a series of historic caves that you may explore.

    Next see “Baia Imperia”, a unique outcrop of circular rocks that emerge straight out of the sea, and “Baia Morrone”, a bay famous for its low sandy bottom which gives off a unique florescent coloring similar to the Caribbean. Both sites are accessible only by sea. Then proceed to the “Baia dei Turchi” (Bay of the Turks) so named because of the Turkish troops which landed in Otranto in 1480 during an important battle. In modern times, this area is known for its rich Mediterranean vegetation, beautiful beaches of fine sand and most importantly, its pristine turquoise and emerald green waters.

    The last stop on this tour is the beach of “Alimini”, one of the most frequented destinations in all of Salento. The beach is situated near two lakes, one freshwater and one saltwater, the latter is connected to the sea via a channel. “Alimini” is known for its white sands, lush vegetation and warm waters, perfect for taking a dip in the sea! Before heading back, see the limited remains of a merchant ship “Dimitrios” which grounded on the beach of “Alimini” in 1978.

    Following the swimming breaks, typical Apulian snacks will be enjoyed with wine before returning to the port of Otranto.
