Day 1 - Check-in:
On Saturday afternoon, starting from 5 pm, your skipper will welcome you at Lefkas Marina in Lefkada to store your things in the cabin and go shopping.
In the evening, the skipper and the crew have the opportunity to get to know each other in front of a fish dinner in one of the typical Greek restaurants on the island, before concluding the evening in one of the bars in this coastal town.
We set sail from Lefkas and, travelling peacefully along the canal, we reach the sea from where we head for the small archipelago of the islands of Skorpio, Skorpidi and Tilia, perfect stopover for the first dive that marks the beginning of these holiday. Sailing for a few miles towards the south-east, we reach Meganissi and its verdant coasts and protected bays, where you can visit the beautiful towns of Vathy and Katomeri and spend the night in the suggestive Limonari Bay.
From Meganissi, we leave early in the morning for a nice sail to the south to reach Ithaca, one of the smallest and at the same time most fascinating inhabited islands in Greece. The legendary homeland of Ulysses will enchant you with its rocky bays and white pearly and calcareous coasts, falling straight up a crystal clear sea.
We leave Ithaca with a quiet close-hauled sailing to the north to arrive in Atokos, one of the remotest islands in the western Ionian Archipelago, off the Acarnanian coast. The island is nearly uninhabited, but we will find a wonderful bay of white pebbles and light blue water, with a little solitary house immersed in green olive groves: the ideal place to admire the sunset and spend a peaceful night.
The small island of Kastos is really one of the gems of the Ioanian Sea; you can reach it from Atokos through a short sailing trip to the north-east. Its little harbour on the east side is the perfect place to have a nice dinner ashore, enjoying the excellent local cuisine and the uncontested hospitality of the inhabitants of this small island.
We sail along the western coast of Kastos, stopping in the wonderful Sarakinos Bay to have a swim. From there, we go to the north-west towards the near island of Kastos, famous for its uncontaminated nature and its many inlets where you can stop to have lunch and go snorkeling. At sunset, you can stop for the night in one of its silent bays on the south-east, where you find white beaches surrounded by ancient olive trees, some of the oldest in the whole Ionian Sea.
After breakfast, accompanied by the singing of the cicadas of Kalamos, we head north to arrive in Lefkas. Lunch break at Vatheiavali beach, where you can enjoy the sea and the sun, and return to the Marina in the afternoon, after a walk around the city to discover the little shops and restaurants on the seaside. Dinner ashore in one of the many local restaurants and overnight stay on board.
Disembarkation will take place around 9 am on Saturday.
The route may be subject to variations due to weather conditions, safety and technical evaluations of the Captain. This programming is intended as indicative and non-binding.
