Sail the Greek Islands between Santorini and Mykonos
Dreaming of crystal-clear sapphire waters, whitewashed villages, history laden ruins, lively Greek culture and delectable cuisine straight off the land or from the sea? Then sailing from Greece's Santorini to Mykonos may just be what the doctor ordered. Spend eight blissed-out days under sun drenched skies enjoying the best the Greek Islands of Santorini, Ios, Amorgos, Small Cyclades, Naxos and Mykonos have to offer.
Spend your days island-hopping in the Cyclades, swimming in the clear waters of the Aegean and sleeping aboard a yacht
The blue and white villages of Santorini may cling to the rim of an ancient volcano, but the only fire you’ll see is in the island’s magnificent sunsets
In the sleepy fishing villages of the Small Cyclades islands, you’re more likely to break bread with a local than a tourist
A taste of rural life on the large island of Navos is a mix of historic neighbourhoods and Kitron liqueur
Stylish Mykonos is a place where Europe’s chic and beautiful come to play – offering an exclusive, boutique feel to the island
As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. If you’re planning to have a late night, it’s a good idea to head into town and experience the local night life.

Our Sail Greece: Santorini to Mykonos trips score an average of 4.85 out of 5 based on 26 reviews in the last year.
Dimitris, our skipper, is a great guy to have in charge and made our trip as fun as it could be. He even organised a cake at a restaurant for our first wedding anniversary on one of the islands! But I would definitely say take one of the tours southward (Mykonos/Athens to Santorini) because it can be pretty rough going north into the wind, especially at this time of year (August) when the conditions are the worst.

The best week jam packed of relaxation and suntanning and meeting new friends. The value for money is exceptional.
