We made it back safely and happily to Paros today. Yianni showed us secluded beaches, surprising chortas and agreed to take us to santorini even though he hates sailing there! The kids enjoyed jumping off the boat and even steering it on occasion. It’s a beautiful part of the world and we’d definitely recommend exploring it.
Captain Yiannis – perfect skipper, great guy!
My friends and I had a terrific sailing trip with Cpt. Yiannis. We sailed islands from Athens to Milos for a week. It was amazing; we stopped at the different islands every day. Captain Yiannis was not only an outstanding skipper, but he also is a very knowledgeable tour guide. His family is from Milos, and he really knows the best-hidden beaches and swims places! Also, he had tremendous knowledge of any island we stopped on the way and recommended the best tavernas for dining and the most interesting places to visit.
We also had a long passage from Milos to Hydra, and the captain was very professional and sailed extremely safe and responsible. Great guy, a great captain, thank you, Captain Yiannis! … and a terrific sense of humor – you need to hear his laughter.
Exceptional Sailing holidays during Covid Crisis
We were fortunate enough to have a wonderful sailing holiday this year. Despite the circumstances around COVID, we had a perfect week of sailing around Peloponees mid August. Yiannis and the crew of the charter company really gave their best to make us feel very safe to travel. The boat and everything going along with it was fully desinfected, so that we didn´t face any risk at all. Further the ports and the beautiful bays were not crowded at all. Before travel, we´ve been supported by Yiannis in a perfect way. That made the decision very easy, to take the risk of traveling in exceptional times!
Thank you once again for your great support Yiannis and we´ll be with you for another sailing week next year for sure!!
My highest recommendations for booking your sailing vacation with SailtheGreekIslands!!!
Bareboat sailing with family
We had a wonderful week of sailing in the Saronic Gulf end of August. Yannis gave us the ideal family yacht for this bareboat charter trip . Together with the charter company we felt us in very good hands, for all questions we had. Except in this year 2020, with these special conditions!
The best of the best in Greece
Every trip we’ve taken with Yiannis, has been awesome, safe, exciting and educational. Never a dull moment. I would highly recommend www.SailTheGreekIslands.com to all who are considering sailing in Greece. For families, couples and friends. A perfect holiday experience. Can’t wait to go sailing with Captain Yiannis again in the near future.
7 days around Delos
We were a group of 4 couples, friends since ever, and this was our second trip together. Two years ago one of the couples of our group took a trip with SAIL THE GREEK ISLANDS and the Captain Yanis, so we choose them again for our own trip. It was fantastic days, not only because the incredible and beautiful islands of Greece, but mainly for the knowledge of our captain of the best swimming spots and how to reach it on the best and safest way.
In addition of that our captain was a pleasant and nice guy who were all the time worry about us and the schedule.
Here we come again!!!!

Sailing the Ionian Islands
Dearest Yianni, we loved every moment of our holiday with you. You’re the best skipper we have had. It was such a pleasure to be guided by you and your experience was so reassuring to us. You showed us all of the Ionian treasures. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and sharing your beautiful islands with us. Much love Anastasia and James McKeon. See you again next year we hope!
Excellent family trip
We brought our 3 kids (ages 13, 11 and 8) for a week from the US. Yanis was great. He is an expert sailor, brought us to a rich variety of islands based on the winds and accommodated the wishes of both the adults and kids with pleasure. He gave the kids fun tasks to do so that they were active participants in the process. They felt that they learned something, built confidence and had a great time. This is a great family bonding trip!
If you are looking to book a charter to sail the Greek Islands, you will need a Captain that is knowledgeable, experienced, & friendly. Captain Yiannis is all of the above and more. We had a fabulous sailing experience that, along with the shear beauty of the various islands, was made possible by our Captain. Add in his great knowledge of Greek history and his sense of humour, you have your man. Trust us, you will not be disappointed with your decision to hire Captain Yani. Thanks 👨🏻✈️
