3 ISLANDS ODYSSEY
Aegina. Agistri. Moni. One-day Sail
Aegina is a popular weekend getaway island for Athenians because it is so close to Athens, only a two hour sail. A thirty minute sail from Aegina is Agistri and Moni island is even closer. Three islands in one day.
On our traditional wooden sailing yachts, Aegina is a two hour excursion from Athens. If you join the sailing tour in September, you are likely to participate in the celebrations of the annual Aegina Pistachio Festival. Pistachio trees dominate the terrain and visitors always leave with a souvenir bag of red and green nuts.
Within thirty minutes sailing from Aegina are two more delightful islands. Tiny Moni island is uninhabited by humans but when you swim ashore you can have a delightful close-up encounter with the deer and peacocks that live there along with other little critters.
Agistri island is only 14 square kilometers making it the smallest inhabited island in the Argo Saronic region. Besides ten beaches, Agistri has many secluded coves where the yacht docks for guests to swim and snorkel as if you were on a private island.

We own and operate our own traditional wooden yacht, the 82 foot Apollon, and manage other wooden yachts to create unique cruising experiences in Greece. In our fleet you find “artisanal yachts,” so named because the ships are wholly handcrafted from fine woods in a traditional style. The technique is ancient. The result is modern.
