  • What an amazing way to spend our first week as husband and wife! Thank you so much for everything. Thank the crew for the dancing, dingy adventures, and the amazing food. Everything was 5 star. Wish we could re-set and go on for one more week.

  • Bob and Deb are an amazing team and will make sure your sailing experience is everything you could ask for and more. We recently went with a different company on our last trip, and the whole time I was emailing Bob for recommendations as our crew did not have the depth and knowledge that Bob and Deb can provide. You cannot go wrong with Bob and Deb

Greece Culture and History

Culture of Greece from charter popint of view

Culture

Today’s visitors to Greece have the opportunity to trace the “fingerprints” of Greek history from the Paleolithic Era to the Roman Period in hundreds of archaeological sites, museums and collections scattered through the country. The Greek people are fun loving and friendly always willing to lend a hand. And what about the food? An amazing culinary delight!

History

The first trace of human habitation in Greece appeared approximately 20000 – 10000 B.C. From that time to now the fingerprints of Greek history include the Neolithic Age, Bronze Age, Minoan Crete, Mycenaean Greeks, Macedonians, Hellenistic period, Roman occupation, Ottoman domination and Greek Independence in 1830 with limited sovereign land. Greece sovereign land reached its maximum in 1920.

History Of Greece from a charter point of view
Geography of Greece from Charter point of view

Geography

Greece consists of 6000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas with only 227 inhabited islands. The country is rich with beautiful beaches, coastal caves, amazing archaeological sites, wonderful people and a culinary delight. Here are the island chains we recommend.

Cyclades

The most well-known of the Greek Island chains. The island chain consists of 18 islands which include Santorini and Mykonos the two most popular islands. The distance between islands range from 20 – 50 nm so plan to sail all day and wine and dine in the evenings med moored to the city dock. The waiters will help you with the dock lines! The winds can be strong and seas rough at times,

Ionian

The Ionian Islands of Western Greece remind many people of Italy. They consist of 7 islands including Corfu. They receive more rain that the islands in the Aegean and therefore are greener. They are known for beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, charming villages and stunning countryside. The shorter distances between the islands, maximum of 10 miles, make the Ionian a great choice.

Saronic & Athens

The Saronic Gulf Islands are closest to Athens and consist of 6 islands including Hydra the “carless” city. Travel in Hydra is by mule, donkey or under your own power! A very picturesque city. The sail between islands range from 2 – 4 hours and the winds are generally mild. There is so much more to tell about sailing the Greek Islands! Please call us for more information.
