Similar to the Cyclades Islands, embarkation and disembarkation for crewed catamaran charters occurs in Athens. Visiting this bustling city is a must either before or after your charter. Other embarkation points could include Lavrion, too. 

The Saronic, is home to well protected islands which are found close together to make for great sailing, ideal for a catamaran charter. The Saronic area can be visited on a charter at any time of the season and is an alternative destination to charter in the months of July and August, if you are unable to charter in the Cyclades due to the Meltemi winds. The Saronic is homed to a large number of catamarans, similar to the numbers of catamarans in the Cyclades, resulting in there being a wide range to choose between.

Must see places in the Saronic Islands when on a catamaran charter: 

  • Hydra Town: When visiting Hydra ensure your catamaran is moored in the Old Town port. The port is the heart of the old town. From the moment you wake up, you can enjoy all the sights it has to offer. You can also enjoy Hydra as a car free island and set off on foot to explore the cobbled narrow streets and the surrounding countryside with old footpaths crossing the island, leading to old monasteries, secluded beaches, and hilltops with breath taking views over the Saronic Sea. The banning of cars and the use of around 500 donkeys means Hydra has preserved its personality and traditions.
  • Snorkel in Dokos Island:  Dokos is a small and uninhabited island near Hydra known for its archaeological sites and secluded beaches. These beaches and waters are excellent spots to go snorkelling from your catamaran. 
  • Poros – Poros is a stunning town based on a peninsular. Moor your catamaran and immerse yourself in the life of Poros. While there, why not visit the monastery of Zoodochos Pigi Lemonodasos also known as the Lemon Forest and marvel at the rows of lemon trees.  
  • Aegina: Your catamaran can be moored in either the old village of Perdika or in the Town Marina. From here you can explore the island. The most famous site in Aegina is the ancient Temple of the goddess Athena. It is at the centre of the island, on top of a hill. This is one of Greece’s ancient architectural wonders.
