Why Choose a Kefalonia Flotilla ?

B

uilding on the success in previous seasons, our Kefalonia flotilla starts from the harbour of Aghia Eufimia, an ideal spot from which to explore the southern of the Ionian islands including Zakynthos and Ithaca.
Starting further south means we are ahead of other flotillas, permitting a more adventurous route and exploring destinations not found on other flotilla itineraries.

The Zante route heads south, to Zakynthos and to the Peloponese coast, with the opportunity to visit ancient Olympia. The Kefalonia route takes us on a circumnavigation of the island, exploring Fiskardho, Assos to the west and Lixouri to the south before our beach party in a beautiful bay.

With longer sailing distances, this route offers those clients who are loyal to the Ionian with another challenge whilst still be able to enjoy this beautiful area that we love and know so well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose a flotilla holiday?

You will be in charge of your own chartered yacht as part of a flotilla fleet of not more than twelve yachts. Your professional lead crew will be on hand to assist and guide you through the beautiful waters, organising social events along the way. The crew’s aim is to make this a personal experience for you, and their local knowledge will help to make your holiday a very special one.

What is included with my flotilla holiday?

  • Return flights from the UK (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Overseas airport transfers (on flight inclusive packages)
  • ATOL Protection (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Fully equipped charter yacht
  • Dinghy with outboard engine
  • A Seafarer welcome punch party
  • A Seafarer beach party (14 night flotilla holidays only)
  • End cleaning of your flotilla yacht
  • The services of our experienced lead crew and the support of our local base team / local agents
  • One full tank of diesel, full water tank(s) and cooking gas
  • Welcome pack of provisions and cleaning products to get you started
  • Bed linen, shower towels & tea towels.

Note: Mooring charges (except at flotilla base) extra fuel or water; food, drink and items of a personal nature such as laundry are excluded. For those extending their holiday after the yacht charter, transfer costs from yacht base to your accommodation are usually excluded and payable locally unless you are booking a flight inclusive package.

Do I need a sailing license?

Yes, each skipper on a flotilla or bareboat charter is required to possess a recognised sailing qualification, typically either an RYA Day Skipper practical certificate or an International Certificate of Competence (ICC). If you have experience but not the qualification, our RYA training centre can help you to achieve this as part of your holiday. Call us to discuss this.

Do I need a visa for my holiday in Greece?

No, for British citizens, a tourist visa is not required.

Will I have to pay mooring fees?

On our flotillas, the first and last night of your charter will be in the marina, and we cover the fees for this (excluding showers and other marina facilities). During the course of your holiday there may be one or two places that charge a small fee, but this will generally not exceed 10 euros per night. In some places you will have to pay for topping up your tanks with water. Again, this is included whilst in the marina on your first and last nights.

What wind conditions can I expect?

Generally the prevailing wind is from the North / North West and the strength ranges from force 2 to force 5. Stronger sailing breezes can generally be expected in the afternoons, between 2 and 5pm.

How much cash should I take with me?

Obviously this will depend on what your plans are, but generally you can expect to pay around 15 euros per person for an evening meal. Although most places take card, it is good practice to have enough cash with you to cover any bill. Cash points are available at our home ports of Rhodes and Kos as well as many of the islands – your crew know exactly where and when you can get more and they will keep you updated as your holiday progresses. Travellers cheques are no longer readily accepted, and of course euros is the currency used in Greece.

What's included in my welcome pack?

Your flotilla welcome pack includes a few essentials to get you started:

  • Water, tea, coffee, milk, fruit juice
  • Biscuits, seasonal fruit
  • Washing up liquid, sponge, bin bags, matches
  • Toilet paper, hand soap

Do I need to stock up with provisions at base?

A few basic supplies and plenty of water is always good to have on the yacht, and the marina supermarket is close for the heavy items, however all the islands and ports have some facilities and shops (although sometimes quite basic!). Half the fun of your flotilla holiday is exploring the harbours and villages, and of course there are plenty of restaurants for your evening meals ashore.

What are the rules regarding Holding Tanks in the Ionian?

In Greece the regulations relating to discharges and pollution make a holding tank a practical necessity although we are not aware of them being a legal requirement as yet. It is prudent to ensure that the discharge of any holding tank is done as far from the shore as is practical and to certainly avoid discharge in a confined area such as a bay, harbour or marina.

Where in the UK can I fly from?

You can fly directly to Kefalonia airport from London Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol, Birmingham or Manchester on a Sunday. More options are available on a Saturday, and you can extend your stay in a hotel before you embark.

How far is the base from the airport?

Our base in Aghia Eufimia is approximately 1 hour from Kefalonia airport – we would be happy to arrange this transfer  for you if required.

Our Routes - running from 20th May to 23rd September 2018

The Assos Route

Agia Eufimia

Fly from UK to Kefalonia and transfer to Agia Eufimia harbour for embarkation. Our home in Agia Eufimia is a perfect point from which to explore the southern Ionian islands.

Lively and sophisticated but retaining some traditional Greek charm and character, a great place for people watching.

Fiskardho

We sail around the north coast of the island, heading for the village of Assos, with the famous fort occupying the penninsula. (Note this part of the route is weather dependant)

Kefalonia Route - Assos

An early start today for a cracking sail down the west coast of Kefalonia, and around into the southern facing bay. (Note this part of the route is weather dependant)

Lixouri Kefalonia Flotilla Sailing holidays

Today we head east, to our favourite bay on the south coast, where we raft up for a night under the stars after our beach party.

Ionian flotilla

Plenty of choice – head south to Zakynthos, or alternatively head east to Ithaca, your lead crew will be happy to make some recommedations.

Dubrovnik Flotilla - Sun Odyssey 33i

Return to our base and enjoy a “last supper” together on the waters edge.

Kefalonia Caves

The Zante Route

Fiskardo, Kefalonia Flotilla Sailing holidays

Fly from UK to Kefallonia and transfer to Eufimia harbour for embarkation. Our home in Eufimia is a perfect point from which to explore the southern Ionian islands.

A short sail today, and a perfect chance to get used to your yacht. For those who want to sail further, the south coast of Ithaca has a number of bays to explore. Our destination today is Sami, a working town with plenty of tavernas for our first group meal.

Kefalonia Sami

South we go, exploring the coast of Kefalonia as far as Poros. walk across to the beach from the harbour, and dive into the cool waters from the rocks near the beach (or watch from the shade of the bar!)

Ionian flotilla

Zante town is the capital of the island and the commercial centre.

Zakynthos Town

South we go again, heading across the strait to Zante, one of the most popular Greek islands. From Aghios Nikolaos, a high speed boat trip is possible to “Shipwreck bay”, regarded as one of the best beaches in the world. Note: If weather conditions are not favourable, we substitute this stop for a beach BBQ and party in a secluded bay.

Zante - Shipwreck Bay

Plenty of choices for your free sailing – head for the southern end of Ithaca and choose Vathi, or, weather permitting, head for the south facing bay of Lixouri and Argostoli.

Dubrovnik Flotilla - Sun Odyssey 33i

Return to our base and enjoy a “last supper” together on the waters edge.

Agia Eufimia

TWO WEEK FLOTILLA – Combine the Lixouri route with the Zante route for a two week flotilla holiday

Kefalonia flotilla holiday routes may vary during the season according to weather and operating conditions. Our flotilla crew will keep you fully briefed each day.

The Weather

The Ionian islands enjoy a wonderful climate, and you can be virtually assured of great weather and warm temperatures during the flotilla season. Winds on the Kefalonia flotilla are moderate, with strengths of force 2-4, occasionally a little more in open water. For those accustomed to the calm waters to the east of Lefkas and Kefalonia, the open waters can often have more of a swell, particularly further south.
