Sailing charter from Port Heli to Athens (Lavrio)


The sailing charter from Port Heli to Athens (Lavrio) is an easy sailing holiday suitable even for those at the first experience.

Boarding in the late afternoon at Port Heli (reachable by fast ferry from Piraeus), welcome toast and accommodation in the respective cabins.


We will circumnavigate the island of Spetse stopping for lunch in a remote bay on the south west coast. Then in the afternoon we move to the main port of the island Spetse, which derives its name from Spezie, given by the Venetians, and it was a fundamental stop along the route of spices. Today the main feature of the town is not to allow private car traffic, so either walking, or using horse-drawn carriages, or riding a bicycle. The atmosphere is very relaxed.


An easy sailing will take us to the deep bay at the center of the island of Dhokos, where we will stop for lunch. Then in the afternoon we move to the port of Ydra. In Ydra motor vehicles are not permitted for which you are walking on foot or with donkeys. Its main attraction consists of the beautiful houses of its inhabited center, built in 1800 when the island was home to a rich community of shipowners. Today it is the favorite destination of the Athenian intellectuals who bought many houses located in the upper part of the town


We return to the coast and for lunch we will stop in the shelter of 3 islands that mark the eastern Cape of the Peloponnese. In the early afternoon we sail towards Poros, an island that is located in the middle of the Saronic Gulf, with a beautiful village perched on the hill.


We will sail in the morning to reach Palaia Epidaurus. We moor in the marina and then in the afternoon we visit the splendid theater of Epidaurus. It is the best preserved Greek theater and has acoustics that is difficult to tell. Suffice it to say that a coin dropped in the center of the stage feels perfectly seated in the stands above a hundred meters.


We sail towards Aegina where we will moor in the small port of Agia Marina. In the afternoon by bus you reach the famous temple of Afaia, a well-preserved and truly spectacular Greek temple.


It starts in the morning not too late to make a beautiful sail along the south coast of the Attika. For lunch we will stop under the temple of Poseidon at Cape Sunio, which can be visited with a nice walk for the more fit. In the late afternoon we will move to Lavrio.


Breakfast and disembarkation.
