Itinerary

This itinerary can be customised.

DAY 1

You'll arrive into Kos where you'll head to the marina which is one of the the best Greek private harbours within walking distance of the city of Kos which is especially beautiful in the summer and has an abundance of Greek night life. Overnight on board.

Kos is a fertile island which produces fine vegetables, melons and grapes. The city of Kos was founded in 336 B.C. and ancient Kos had many famous citizens but most famous was Hippocrates, the great physician of antiquity and the father of modern medicine. The Asclepion, just outside Kos town has tree terraces that lie in a peaceful setting near to medicinal springs on a limestone hill overlooking the Gulf of Kos. It is the place to remember the famous Hippocratic Oath. 

DAY 2

Leros. With its stunning sandy beaches and crystal clear waters you have a choice of places to anchor. Both Ormos Alidas and Ormos Panteli are known for their quaint tavernas which serve sumptuous Greek food.

DAY 3  - DAY 4

Patmos is on the northernmost part of Dodecanese Islands. It includes three barren volcanic hills and is well known for its monasteries (St. John the Divine) and the trade of sponges. The perfect place to anchor is the main harbor called Skala.

Patmos belongs to the Christian age rather than to the antiquity and it is the spiritual centre of the Greek Orthodox Church after Mt. Athos. It is here that St. John the Divine is said to have dictated the wild poetry of the Apocalypse, found in the book of Revelations, to his disciple Prochorus.

DAY 5

In Lipsi you'll find small villages that attract lots of tourists, especially those who like fishing and farming. The smell of fresh fish wafts through the air. Here you'll also find the best clear blue water of the Dodecanese Islands. Lipsi, with her white beaches and beautiful rock caves is one of the most sought after anchoring points in Greece. 

DAY 6

Arki is an very small island lying six miles North East of Patmos. About halfway along the western coast lies Port Augusta and Port Stretto, protected by a number of small off-shore islands.

Here you'll only find two tavernas and a handful of guest houses as Arki is an island certainly off the beaten track.

DAY 7

Kalimnos - the home of Kalimniot sponge-divers and the sister island of Leros. In the past the sponge divers were known to fish in shallow waters, jumping overboard with a heavy stone slab and scooping the sponges off the bottom into a net. Sponges are of the main produce of the area.

DAY 8

Return to Kos at the end of your wonderful sailing adventure.
