The Saronic Explorer Flotilla

Intermediate Sailing – Levels 2+
Ideal For More Experienced Sailors
Best for history & Culture featuring famous ancient sites

This is a great chance to end the season, with a fantastic 2 week voyage around the best of the Saronic & Argolic Gulfs.

Starting from our home port of Korfos, we’ll explore the best of the Peloponnese coast, as well as the Saronic and Argolic gulfs before heading east for a taste of the Cyclades islands, weather permitting.

We’ve got extensive knowledge of the area, and our fantastic lead crew will ensure we see the best of this fantastic part of Greece during your 2 week voyage. October can be a changeable time weather-wise, so as sailors, we won’t surprised if the route needs to be adapted to suit the variable conditions that we will certainly experience. Wherever we go, you can be sure that our crew will make sure we go to some great locations, with hearty warm food and a cold drink to round of some great sailing days in the warming Aegean sun.
