What To Expect
Visit the natural insular archaeological site of Delos and enjoy swimming to a secluded cove off the uninhabited island of Rhenia on an 8-hour yacht cruise with a yummy light lunch and beverages on board. Feel free with a flexi program and choose on spot either a second beach stop for swimming in Rhenia or the guided visit of Delos. It is your day cruise!
Meeting point is at Tourlos, the new port of Mykonos, located about 1.5 kilometers from Mykonos Town. Once an overview of the sailing yacht and important safety information are introduced, set sail heading to Rhenia and Delos islands, the center of the Cyclades and located few miles south-west of Mykonos.
As you sail, the crew will be happy to 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, relaxing as you sunbathe on deck, and listening to an informative local history about the islands by our friendly crew.
After approximately 1.5 hour sailing, arrive at the pristine 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 have about two hours to enjoy swimming, snorkeling and savoring a light lunch on board of specially made Italian pasta with Greek flavored dressing instantly cooked and juicy local fruits, served with the choice of Greek red or white wine, a Greek beer or a soft drink.
The next stop is your flexi on spot choice: either Delos, one of the most important archaeological sites of Greek history, for the guided tour or alternatively, a second beach stop for swimming in one even more stunning pristine bay of Rhenia. It is all about a flexi program where you are free to choose the best way to enjoy your time!
In Delos, spend about 1.5 to 2 hours with your 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.
Re-embarkation to our sailing yacht is at approximately 17:00. A soft drink on board will refresh us before sailing back to Mykonos. It will be a real fun raising the sails and playing with the waves.
Expected arrival time in Mykonos is at approximately 18:30.
