Discover Mykonos, Sail the Greek Cyclades Islands

We’ll sail the Greek Islands, dine, and swim our way from Aegina Island to Mykonos. Starting in the beautiful Island of Aegina, we’ll spend a few hours each day sailing to a different island in the Cyclades. We’ll swim in quiet bays, disembark on a different island each afternoon to explore ancient ruins, taste local wine and cuisine, and immerse ourselves in the natural beauty and culture that has drawn travelers to Greece for centuries. See ‘Itinerary’ below for more details.

The Cyclades Islands are famous for their sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and beautiful towns of white and blue houses.

Mykonos church and crew

We’ll begin our journey in Aegina Town on Aegina Island. Aegina Town is lively and charming with historic buildings and ancient ruins. It is 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 simple and easy.

We went on a two week sailing adventure with Alex & Natalie and it was amazing! Of all the trips I have taken to Europe this by far the best. Traveling by sailboat from Greek Isle to Greek Isle is the way to go. Watching the sun rise from the water after a night of sailing will be one of the most memorable moments of my life ! Thank you Alex and Natalie !

A great sailing week with Alex who made us feel comfortable in all situations.

A great sailing week with Alex who made us feel comfortable in all situations. Alex was superb at teaching my family and helped pass my day Skipper. He creates a enjoyable and fun environment to learn in and there is never a dull moment on NISI. I would defenitley recommend this to anyone looking for a fun way to explore Greece.

Alex is a constant laugh from sunrise through to sundown always making you have a little giggle through out the day

I’ve been sailing with Alex for 4 years and have been working up to day skipper. Alex is a great instructor who teaches well and makes it fun to learn aboard NISI with him. He is a constant laugh from sunrise through to sundown always making you have a little giggle through out the day. Definitely worth a holiday in Greece.
