  • How long do we sail every day?
  • That can be up to you, although some places are just plain further away. Paros is conveniently located in the heart of the Cycladic islands which are between 2 and 5 hours sailing hours apart. So unless you’re very keen sailors wishing to spend many hours on the move, you will be rather island hopping, dividing your time between sailing, swimming, relaxing and discovering hidden beauties of the Greek islands.

    Hello Vanessa. We were really thrilled by the beautiful sailing week. We were wonderfully guided from island to island through wind and waves by ANTONIS our skipper and despite our shortcomings in English, there was never a problem! Antonis has allowed us to discover magical places while being discreet and always attentive, taking care of our wishes and our well being. A big thank you to your organization and yourself for monitoring and making sure our trip remains unforgettable.

    Hi to all the Archipel team! Dolphins don't always show up as you told us, but to our delight, they visited us south of Naxos on the last day of our cruise!! My wife and I want to congratulate you for your professionalism and responsiveness both before and during our cruise. We feared a too touristy Greece, we experienced quite the opposite. Brilliant.

    We just got off the boat and settled into our room in Paros after a wonderful trip with Antonis aboard Raffaella for the week. We feel so lucky to have had such a nice and knowledgeable captain who had great ideas on where to go as well as listened to our interests and sailed the perfect trip for us. Our best memories include a night sail on my wife�s birthday so we could enjoy the smooth sea and see the stars while heading to a quiet port for a tranquil night's sleep. Thank you for the wine which was an excellent way to kick off the trip. And thank you for making the booking process so easy for us and answering all of my questions. We felt very comfortable with everything. We really could not have had a better trip.

    Just got back from a picture perfect one week Paros to Paros itinerary. The trip was well planned and adjusted to our abilities and weather. The boat (Oceanis 40) is small but very functional. Skipper Georgios was professional, friendly and tactful, and provided excellent local guidance. Highly recommend.

                FAQ

  • Where and when do we embark the yacht?

  • Unless otherwise arranged with you, you will embark in Paros on Fridays at 11 am (if your arrive later your captain will wait for you, no worry!). You will disembark in Paros on Thursday at 5 pm (or earlier if you wish to) which leaves you plenty of time to take the 7 pm ferry to Athens.
  • How long will we be sailing for each day?

  • Sailing from isle to isle is what our charters are all about, we think the sailing is part of the fun. We sail an average of 2 to 5 hours per day leaving plenty of time in the afternoon to visit a different Greek island every day. Our yachts come fully equipped with comfy coach seating, tables, a music system and fridge, cabins and bathrooms � and most guests use the time we spend sailing to read, sleep, sun bathing or play games. Of course, you are free to partake in handling the yacht with your captain, if you so wish!
  • Can I charter the Oceanis yacht for 5 or 6 days only?

  • Yes it is possible but only if the schedule allows it since our bookings are on week based.
  • Where do we have dinner?

  • We believe taverna dinners are part of the Greek lifestyle experience. Having dinner ashore is about exploring the richness and splendor of Greek food in a relaxed atmosphere. Your captain will be more than happy to introduce you to the unique food specialities of each Greek island you will visit. There is always a vegetarian option available too. Of course you may cook onboard if you prefer, the galley of the Oceanis is fully equiped.
  • What happens if the wind blows hard?

  • Our Oceanis yachts provide safety and comfort to everyone onboard. Because our captains daily monitor long term forecasts, they can anticipate a blow and tailor your itinerary according to your preferences.
  • How do I figure costs and expenses?

  • Fuel, water, port dues and end cleaning will cost you in total approximately 225 Euros per week. For your breakfasts and lunches on the boat, you should expect to spend about 8 Euros per person per day for the two meals. Dinner in a Greek taverna costs about 14 Euros per person (local wine, beer or soda included).
  • What happens when there's no wind?

  • Statistically, during summer in the Cyclades, there are up to 2 or 3 windless days per month. When this happens, diesel engines take over, itineraries are less constrained, there's more relaxing, swimming and snorkeling.
  • How do we make our food supply?

  • You will find within 200 yards of our boats all the grocery shops you need: supermarket, bakery, greengrocer, fish shop etc.
  • We are a young married couple. Any 'romantic' itinerary you would suggest?

  • - Paros -> Ios (walk the fine sand beaches of Mangganari at sunset before heading for dinner).
    - Santorini (sail in to the worlds largest caldera, swim in it, visit picturesque Oia have a sundowner and dinner for two in a lovely restaurant then go back to the boat and a starlit night away from the crowds).
    - Folegandros (discover the maze of narrow alleys in medieval Kastro).
    - Polyaigos / Kimolos (enjoy a truely white sand beach all on your own before moving for the night anchorage in a quite cove under the stars).
    - Sifnos (discover Apollonia and Kastro when everyone's at the beach then enjoy your evening at a beach-side taverna in Vathy).
    - Dhespotiko (swim in turquoise waters, wander ashore on your own among the ruins of a greek temple, have dinner in Antiparos by the sea).
    - back to Paros stopping for a short swim in a desert cove.
  • Do you have a set sailing pattern or can we tell you the islands we prefer to go?

  • A sailing itinerary is always a compromise between sightseing wishes, life-style, weather constraints and how much sailing you wish to do. The ideal strategy for a week's sailing tour is to reach the most distant point on the third day. We do not have a fixed itinerary, to the contrary we try to input personal parameters for each individual group. Hence, on first day, together with your captain with the week's windforecast in hand, you will select the most suitable set of stopovers.
