IONIAN ISLAND HOPPING ITINERARIES - with Greek Motor Sailer - Aegeotissa II

Explore the Ionian Islands the Seafaring Way with Our Greek Motor Sailer - Aegeotissa II

In a world that's constantly on the move, we invite you to step back in time to those idyllic days when the perfect holiday meant embarking on a boat adventure and island-hopping. We're here to take you away to those nostalgic moments, with a touch of modern ensuite comfort, aboard the Ionian Islands gulet cruise. The voyage takes you to enchanting destinations like Naxos, Corfu, Parga, and Nydri.

The meticulously planned itineraries allow you to savor a few hours at sea each day while ensuring ample time to immerse yourself in local culture, whether you're exploring vibrant markets or leisurely sipping a cold beer or a glass of local wine at a charming waterfront bar.

This Ionian Islands cruise is your gateway to lesser-known, off-the-beaten-path harbors, where the 12-cabin motor sailer docks snugly by the quayside. You're never more than a short stroll away from the heart of each destination. As the Vessel sail along, the crew drop anchor at picturesque spots, inviting you to dive into the crystal-clear waters and cool off.

Alternatively, dive into thrilling aquatic adventures with kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding, embark on mesmerizing snorkeling excursions, or discover uninhabited island beaches just a barefoot stroll away from your floating haven. On larger islands, seize the opportunity to borrow one of our onboard bicycles and pedal off on a personal voyage of exploration.

The countries around the Mediterranean, literally the ‘sea in the centre of the Earth’, have produced many famous philosophers – we may not be in the same league as Aristotle, Plato or Socrates but, as you will be cruising the Aegean in the wake of such great men, we’d like to share our own thinking with you.

We believe that travel is a way to better understanding and peace and, to this end, it should always be sustainable both in terms of the environment and local economies.
When we go somewhere we respect who and what we find and add to it rather than take away from it. We have a local focus – wherever possible our chef uses local organic produce in all onboard meals. We serve breakfast and one other meal on board each day but want you to explore the cuisine in waterfront tavernas and spend money locally on a meal and a few drinks is fine.
No excursions are sold on board – but happily advise where to go and see or if you prefer more professionally done, the crew will point you in the direction of the local tour organiser. In general cruise goes to off-the- beaten-track places which benefit from having small numbers of visitors, not massive crowds.

The sea is our lifeblood, and we respect it above and below the water. Every week our crew devote some time to a beach clean-up – and you are welcome to  join them. We support dolphin projects. We have eliminated single-use plastic bottles.

In order to combat global warming our vessels run on the  cleanest possible energy and we keep cruising time to a  minimum – in these waters you don’t need to travel a long  way to see a great deal.

We respect our colleagues and recruit local people.  We believe in equal opportunities.

We respect the health of our guests and actively encourage them to swim every day and walk wherever possible.

As we grow our business, we plan to support education  on the islands, educating the thinkers and sailors of tomorrow – who knows, there may be a second  Socrates amongst them!

Food & Drink

 Wherever possible our chef uses local organic produce in all onboard meals. The Cruise is based on HB basis, the crews serve breakfast and one other meal on board each day. If you prefer to explore the cuisine in waterfront tavernas and spend money locally on a meal and a few drinks, it is your own choice.  However drinks are not included and payable on board.
