Discover the Saronic Gulf, learn to sail in Greece

Come aboard for an amazing Greek Sailing Adventure! Do you enjoy a challenge and love to experience the world’s cultures, foods, and natural beauty? Join NISI’s crew for a sailing adventure around the Greek Saronic Gulf. We’ll sail for a few hours each day from one island to another, stopping to swim in pristine coves. You’ll experience Greece’s culture, cuisine, history, and nature by land. You’ll also be an active part of the crew. Captain Alex will coach as much or as little as you’d like.

MONI VIEW

After each day of sailing, you’ll have time to explore on land. Your skipper and crew will point out historical sites, hikes, bike rentals, swimming spots, shops, and restaurants. See ‘Itinerary’ below for more details.

We’ll begin and end our journey on Aegina Island. Aegina Town is lively and charming. It’s also the closest island to Athens International Airport. Upon booking, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions for getting to the boat. We’ll help make your transit as easy as possible.

Come aboard NISI for an active adventure and forget the outside world, if only for a week. Sail, swim, and eat your way through Greece’s Saronic Gulf Islands.

ITINERARY

The itinerary for our Greek Sailing Adventure will be flexible. We will accommodate your preferences and needs, make the best of the winds and weather, and ensure the safety of the group.

1

Day One: Aegina

First, you’ll arrive in Aegina. Aegina Town is the capital of the Island with the same name. A beautiful, bustling village with colorful houses, narrow streets, and cafes and a little port where the fishing boats and sailboats seem to live together in harmony.

You’ll meet the skipper and crew and take a grand tour of Sailing Yacht NISI. We’ll go to a local eatery to discuss the week’s program, weather, and route over local food and wine. Then we’ll return to NISI for a good night’s sleep.

Aegina Port, where your NISI Sailing adventure begins and ends.

2

Day Two: Poros

After breakfast and a safety briefing, our sailing adventure will begin! We’ll sail to the nearby island of Poros.

Before mooring, we may stop for an al fresco lunch and a swim from the back of the boat in beautiful Russian Bay. Then we’ll go into port to explore Poros’s famous clock tower, shops, tavernas, and steep, winding streets. One of it’s culinary highlights? An ice cream shop with a rainbow of refreshing ice cream flavors. We’ll dine at one of the Island’s coziest traditional restaurants, and then call it a night aboard NISI.

After the first day sailing, we'll stop for the night in Poros.

3

Day Tree: Vathi

 From Poros we continue sailing to moor in the tiny village of Vathi. Nestled in wooded hills in a peaceful setting, this tiny, remote town offers peace and tranquility, seemingly away from the world with big night skies illuminated only with the twinkle of the stars. Occasionally schools of dolphin can be spotted playfully fishing in the serene waters leading into the port.

We'll go sailing to the peaceful village of Vathi.

4

Day Four: Epidavros

Epidavros, visit its ancient ruins, and swim to see a 4,000-year-old ‘Sunken City.’ Of course, you’ll have the opportunity to dine in one of the island’s best restaurants and taste the local fare. Get a good night’s sleep aboard NISI.

Come sailing to Epidavros and hike to see its ancient amphitheater.

Epidavros Ancient Theatre, constructed in the late 4th century BC, its only a short ride away from the port, and worth a visit.

5

Day Five: Korfos

Korfos bay is just a fe miles North of Epidavros. Its bay is protected from almost all winds and is’t perfect for anchor at night and enjoy the stars thanks to its little light pollution. Get a good night’s sleep aboard NISI.

6

Day Six: Aegina

All good things must come to an end. On this day, we’ll sail back to Aegina. Before our sailing adventure ends, we’ll stop for a relaxing lunch and refreshing swim in the crystal waters of Metopi. We’ll arrive in Aegina at 4pm in time for you to disembark. You may explore the island, buy pistachios and ouzo for friends at home, or catch a ferry to Athens. You also have the option to sleep aboard NISI and disembark the following morning by 9AM.

We had such a great time with Natalie and Alex (oh and of course, Kenickie!). I had no sailing experience before this trip but felt like I learned a lot with Alex, our very patient skipper. It was a great balance between feeling engaged with the work of sailing and being able to relax and take in the beauty and culture of Greece. I was originally worried I might get “sea-fatigue” but I felt like we spent just the right amount of time sailing each day, and then had plenty of time on land to explore the little Greek towns and eat plenty of their delicious (and cheap!) food. I would highly recommend Nisi Sailing to any of my friends.

The boat is comfortable and I could rest and sleep super well. I never imagined that living in a boat for a week could be that much fun!

My sailing experience with Nisi was incredible and certainly one of the best travel experiences I ever had! Alex & Natalie are fantastic and they prepared for our group a fantastic week full of sailing fun, adventures, exotic places, breathtaking beaches, and visits to cute Greek small towns. Greek food is fantastic (and cheap!!). The boat is comfortable and I could rest and sleep super well. I never imagined that living in a boat for a week could be that much fun! I strongly recommend Nisi sailing to couples, families, and groups of friends, from various ages. You will have the best vacation of a lifetime!!

If you’re looking for a great captain who’s fun and will bring you to beautiful picturesque Greek sailing destinations then Alex is your guy.

Alex is not only an amazing captain. He’s extremely knowledgable about Greece and all of the beautiful ports to visit. And he knows where the perfect coves are to drop anchor and enjoy a swim or lunch. Alex is fun, entertaining and someone you want to have with you on a trip on a yacht. If you’re looking for a great captain who’s fun and will bring you to beautiful picturesque Greek sailing destinations then Alex is your guy.

Contacté por la web para pedir información y la respuesta fue muy rápida y la comunicación muy fluída.

Contacté por la web para pedir información y la respuesta fue muy rápida y la comunicación muy fluída. Quería pasar una semana navegando con mis hijos de 9 y 6 años a la vez que refrescaba mis oxidados conocimientos de patrón de barco.
El resultado no ha podido ser más satisfactorio. Nos lo hemos pasado muy bien. Mis hijos han podido disfrutar de una experiencia inolvidable y yo he aprendido muchísimo supervisado por Alex y Nathaly.
Alex conoce a la perfección el Golfo Sarónico y consigue que la navegación sea muy relajada haciendo participar a los niños en todas las maniobras. Y encima los niños han practicado inglés con Nathaly!!!
Espero poder volver el próximo año!!!

We spent two weeks with Alex learning to sail in the Saronic Gulf in Greece. Each morning we had a briefing and set goals so our day was well balanced between sailing and exploring. Alex gladly shares his expertise, ideas and techniques. We learned a lot from the great quality of teaching and demonstrations succeeding in getting a Day Skipper License.
Thank you Alex for the most wonderful vacation.
Thank you Nisi Sailing.
We’ll see you next year!
