Sailing the Ionian

Ionian Sailing Adventure

Using the island of Lefkas as a base, Tahita and her crew look forward to accompanying you on an unforgettable sailing journey…

We can create your ideal sailing trip encompassing turquoise waters, islands covered in lush green vegetation, ancient castles and a chance to visit the home of classical mythology.

The choice is yours and we’re as flexible as the weather! The itinerary that follows is just an example of what you will experience while sailing with us around the Ionian islands…

DAY 1: Welcome at Vassiliki, Lefkas

Meeting at our boat, based in Vassiliki, Lefkas. Briefing and arrangement of provisions. Departure for the isolated island of Kastos (population: 80 people). We stop for a swim on the way in the clear turquoise waters of Agiofili, one of the sandy coves of Vassiliki. We spend the night in the beautiful fishing village of Kastos and sample the local fish dishes.

DAY 2: Sail towards picturesque Fiscardo, Cephalonia

Sail to the uninhabited island of Atokos where we will stop for a swim, a chance to snorkel and a barbecue. After that, we continue for the cosmopolitan port of Fiscardo in Cephalonia. There you can taste the incredible local recipes and walk through the picturesque 19th century houses set amidst fragrant pine groves.

DAY 3: Sail to remote beach & spend the night at Kioni, Ithaca

We sail to the island of Ithaca, once the home of Ulysses. We’ll anchor at the spectacular beach of Gremni where you can swim at the foot of the dramatic cliffs and relax on the beautiful, fine white sand. Next stop, the fishing village of Kioni in Ithaca, well-known for its attractive huddle of white washed houses.


DAY 4: Explore uninhabited Oxia island & experience night sailing

An early start for our sail to Oxia, a tiny island off the delta of the river Acheloos on the mainland. Here you will enjoy the stunning surroundings and utter isolation, except for a few fishing boats. We will then sail after sunset towards the main port of Ithaka.


DAY 5: Spend the day exploring Ithaca

Today we'll rest and spend the day exploring the island and the Nymphes cave. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit a unique home-museum, run by a local school teacher in the town of Stavros, which houses a collection of items excavated on the site of Ulysses’ palace.


DAY 6: Sail to remote traditional fishing island

Next we sail to the fishing island of Kalamos to spend a relaxing day snorkeling and swimming. We recommend a short hike to the top of the hill to watch the beautiful sunset, followed by a delicious dinner at the local tavern by the sea.


DAY 7: Make the most of the last day sailing towards Lefkada

Sail back to our base, the little port of Vassiliki. We'll stop on the way for a swim and lunch at a pretty cove. Farewell supper at one of the nearby villages.
