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!

  • Skopelos
    Skopelos

    Tucked away in the western Aegean Sea, Skopelos is one of the lushest Greek islands of the Sporades island group, with pine forests that grow densely to the water’s edge and seemingly reach into the sea. Boasting dozens of picturesque, white-sand beaches and quintessential Greek villages, Skopelos sings with beauty. Most of the outdoor scenes in Mamma Mia were filmed on location at the island’s beaches and small towns. Weather permitting, we will sail by the headland with the wedding chapel shown in the movie.

  • Skiathos
    Skiathos

    A green island with 65 beaches. The beach scenes in "Mama Mia" were filmed here. We anchor off the attractive Skiathos Town.

  • Kusadasi (Ephesus)
    Kusadasi (Ephesus)

    Kusadasi is a beach resort town on Turkey’s Aegean coast and the center of the seaside district of the same name in Aydin Province. The seaside town is also your gateway to the classical ruins at nearby Ephesus, among the world’s best preserved ancient Greco-Roman remains, including its excavated Terrace Houses and House of the Virgin Mary. Kusadasi’s seafront promenade, marina, and harbor are lined with quaint restaurants. Just offshore on Pigeon Island stands a walled thirteenth-century Byzantine castle that once guarded the town. Meet resident wild boars at nearby Dikek National Park, comprised of four secluded beaches, a spectacular coastline, and incomparable views of the Aegean Sea, just one of Turkey’s many protected conservation areas.

  • Patmos
    Patmos

    Patmos is in the South Aegean Islands, particularly a member of the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. It is north of Leros and is most known for its connection to John the Apostle from the Book of Revelations; therefore Christian pilgrims frequent this destination. In mythology, Patmos was named “Letois”, which is another named for the goddess Diana, Leto’s daughter. Since ancient authors seldom mention Patmos in early text, information on early inhabitants is limited. It is widely believed the original people of Patmos were the Carians from Asia Minor, as discovered by the earliest archaeological findings date back to the Bronze and Mycenaean periods. The mountain in the country of Caria was named Latmos, which is where historians believe the name Patmos is derived from. Dorians also colonized in Patmos, and over time, Ionians followed suit. The primary port in Patmos is Skala, which was one of the most important sea ports in the Mediterranean around the 16th century. Early Christian basilicas were constructed in the name of John of Patmos, however between the 7th and 9th century when Saracen attacks were still problematic, the Grand Royal Basilica was destroyed. A monastery began construction in 1101 when Christodoulos assumed authority over Patmos. The population began expanding as immigrants from the fall of Constantinople and Candia to place in the 15th and 17th centuries, respectively. The island was under the Ottoman rule for years and was interrupted by Venice during the Candian War, Russia during the Orlov Revolt, and Greece during their War of Independence. During the Italo-Turkish War, Italy occupied Patmos until 1943, when Nazi Germany held power over the island until 1945. Since Patmos rejoined in 1948, it has become the tranquil and frequented destination it is now. Tourists visit the Monastery of St. John, Chora, the Cave of Apocalypse, Psili Ammos Beach and other beautiful points of interest in “Europe’s most idyllic place to live,” as named by Forbes in 2009.

  • 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.

  • Sifnos Island
    Sifnos Island

    This Greek Isle's history dates back before the year 4000 BC. The island has a rich history of silver and lead mining and was one of the first places where currency minting occurred in Greece. Today, the island is frequented for its beaches, churches, festivals, food, and of course, classic Greek isle architecture.

  • 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.

  • Patmos - The Monastery of St. John & Patmian House

    Description

    Explore the UNESCO-listed Monastery of St. John the Theologian, the divine Grotto, and experience a glimpse of a traditional Patmian home.

    Patmos is often called the Jerusalem of the Aegean, the sacred island where St. John wrote the Book of Revelations in the Bible. Depart from the pier today for a short scenic ride to Chora and the UNESCO-listed Monastery of St. John the Theologian, built high on an ancient acropolis. The monastery's massive 15th-century walls and 17th-century battlements loom over the town belying an intimate and peaceful interior of arches, inlaid pebble stone floors, and whitewashed buildings. The charming chapel of Christodoulos is profusely decorated with frescoes and the old treasury, now a museum, displays a breathtaking collection of jeweled chalices, crowns, crucifixes, vestments and ancient manuscripts.

    Travel on to the Grotto of St. John where the saint heard the voice of God and wrote his revelations.

Both the Cave and the Monastery have been UNESCO listed in 1999. The iconostases built into the cave depict St. John's visions and the spots where the saint slept, wrote, and heard "a great voice, as of a trumpet."

    Back in Chora you will visit one of the traditional Patmian houses, the house of the Simantiris family. The magnificence of Patmian home interiors is stunning.

  • 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.

  • Sifnos Island - Dazzling White Villages of Sifnos

    Description

    Unravel the historic chronicles of Sifnos while visiting its main villages, walking along cobblestone paths and traveling to its quaint villages. Also stop at the famous Chrysopigi Monastery to enjoy its subtle beauty.

    Your coach departs the pier and travels toward the celebrated monastery of Panayia Chrysopigi, and patron saint of the island. Built in 1650 over the foundations of an older church and dramatically placed between the rocks, on the edge of a small cape, it’s joined with the rest of Sifnos by a bridge.

    After a short visit, the tour continues to Apollonia. Driving past ancient, terraced mountains, admire the panoramic views of the sea surrounding the land, sprinkled with brilliant white chapels and their colorful domes. Meanwhile the guide will be unravelling both the ancient and modern history of Sifnos, a history than goes back 4000 years. At Apollonia, the present capital of the island, enjoy a guided walking tour down its stone paved pedestrian alleys, through the architecturally preserved town, past terraces planted with olive trees, strange chimney pots decorated with birds, traditional shops and flowered courtyards.

    Kastro Village is the next stop and is located at the top of a rock with steep sided cliffs and a panoramic view overlooking the sea and to the neighboring islands. Kastro played an important role in the history of Sifnos. Inhabited since prehistoric times, Kastro has kept all the characteristics of a fortified village and was rebuilt in 1630 during Venetian colonization. Walk through narrow alleyways, seeing timeworn houses with wooden balconies and coats of arms carved above the doors, small lanterns, chapels, and relics from times gone, all contributing to the special atmosphere of this small village.

    The last village seen is the traditional village of Artemonas, seemingly unscathed by modern life. Admire the neoclassic mansions built 200 years ago and the village’s whitewashed houses with their fluid architecture, a memorable experience for most visitors. From Artemonas, the coach returns to Kamares, where a small snack with a glass of ouzo, or wine, or refreshment will be served at a seafront tavern. Afterwards, you may choose to walk back to the tender dock or remain lingering with the locals to return independently on your own.

  • Milos - Discover Milos' Highlights

    Description

    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.
