Activity description

A magnificent sailing yacht cruise leaving from Mykonos towards Rhenia island and Delos. During the 7 hours of sailing, you will have the chance to learn the basic skills of sailing, sail the boat, or simply enjoy the sun on the deck. At noon, enjoy a homemade lunch on board and get ready for a guided tour of Delos island and its archaeological site.

An amazing sailing cruise to explore Mykonos, Delos, and Rhenia. Definitely, a must-do for everyone who wishes to combine swimming in stunning beaches, sailing, and of course exploring Mykonos and Delos.

 

Offer Description

Visit with a licensed guide the natural insular archaeological site of Delos and enjoy swimming and snorkeling to a secluded cove off the uninhabited island of Rhenia on a 7-hour yacht cruise with a yummy lunch and complimentary drinks. This is a great combo of leisure and history in one day and… sailing is the best way to experience Mykonos nicknamed the “Island of Winds".

Itinerary

You will be picked up by our complimentary shuttle transportation to reach the embarkation point. You will be warmly welcomed by one of the cruise representatives and get an overview of the cruise itinerary.

Once an overview of the sailing yacht and important safety information are introduced by the crew, at 09:30 am you will set sail heading to Rhenia & Delos islands, the center of the Cyclades and located a few miles south-west of Mykonos.

You will sail off and the crew will show you how to raise and trim the sails as well as to steer the yacht, weather permitting. Gaze out at the beautiful scenery and the remarkable crystal blue water of the Aegean Sea, chilling out to the tunes of your choice and relaxing as you sunbathe on deck.

After approximately 1 hour of sailing, you will arrive at the untouched island of Rhenia, separated from the sacred island of Delos by just a small strait. Dropped anchor in the idyllic bay surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and with gold sandy beach, you will enjoy swimming and snorkeling.

Light lunch on board will be ready. It is specially made Italian pasta with Greek flavored dressing instantly cooked on board, Greek salad, and juicy seasonal fruits. A selection of complimentary house wines and soft drinks are also offered.

After approximately 2 hours spent in the untouched islet of Rhenia, the next stop is Delos Island, one of the most important archaeological sites of Greek history. You will spend about 1½ to 2 hours with a professional English-speaking guide exploring the UNESCO-listed Island of Delos, visiting the museum, walking up Mount Kynthos (367 feet high), and admiring the staggering array of ancient ruins. According to mythology, Delos is the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, and the sanctuary to both gods serves as the center of a large Hellenistic city of about 30.000 inhabitants.

We are ready at 03:30 pm to sail back to Mykonos. Arrival is scheduled for 04:30 pm and our complimentary shuttle transportation will be waiting for you. We will say goodbye in the Greek way with a farewell drink toast and return home full of euphoria for having shared with you our Greece, whose destiny is bound to the sea and sailing is the best way to experience it
