Itinerary

Embarkation time is at 08:30 am.

You will be picked up by our complimentary shuttle transportation to reach the embarkation point. Our dedicated crew will welcome you onboard by serving a refreshing drink and showing you around the spacious and elegant vessel. One of our cruise representatives will greet you and give you an overview of the cruise itinerary. Important safety information will follow.

At 09:00 am we lift the anchors heading to Rhenia & Delos islands, the center of the Cyclades and located a few miles south-west of Mykonos.

After approximately 1 hour of sailing, we 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 enjoys refreshing swimming. Snorkeling gear is available on board for free use at your convenience. A wonderfully spacious outdoor environment onboard our 112-foot long sailing yacht allows all our guests to never feel confined and enjoy sunbathing on comfortable deck cushions. Tends for shadows from the sun are also available. Lunch is ready at the ringing bell sound with a feast of traditional Greek flavors served with a Mediterranean-style buffet and a selection of complimentary wine, and soft drinks.

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 for our Licensed Guided Tour. Our crew will help you disembark by a short tender ride to the small dock of Delos. We spend about 1½ hour with our professional English-speaking guide and about 30 minutes free time 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. Our complimentary shuttle transportation is 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.

Traversée jusque Rheina, nous avons jeté l'ancre et profité d'une baignade dans une jolie crique, repas copieux servi à bord, sieste et détente avant de repartir vers Delos pour une visite guidée.

Best Excursion all Trip!

We had a great time on our yachting day around the islands of Rhenia and Delos. There was plenty of time to swim around Rhenia and the water was crystal clear. We were not allowed to swim at Delos though, so the choice was to stay on the yacht for two hours while the others toured the island, or go on the excursion. We had originally thought that we would be able to swim at both islands so we did not plan on touring Delos, but once we were told otherwise we decided to join the tour. I'm glad we did though, because it was very interesting history about Greece. The food onboard was delicious and there was all you can drink wine.
