A yachting tour that offers a great way to spend a few hours away from the cosmopolitan Mykonos and explore a combination of immense natural beauty and unparalleled historical significance. Our crew will help you learn the basics of sailing as you cross the waters of the Aegean Sea, until you reach the turquoise bay in Rinia, an uninhabited islet next to Delos, where you will have the chance to swim and snorkel near sandy beaches.

After you’ve enjoyed some freshly prepared lunch on board, you will take a guided tour of the archaeological site of Delos, an island that has in its entirety been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Ancient Theater, the Temple of Isis, the iconic Lion Terrace and of course the Archaeological Museum of Delos are just some of the captivating stops along the way. After you’ve enjoyed some free time on the island we will head back to the Agios Ioannis bay in Mykonos.

You will be picked up by our complimentary shuttle transportation to reach the embarkation point. One of our cruise representatives will greet you and give you an overview of the cruise itinerary. A short tender ride will follow from the small dock in order to embark the sailing yacht anchored out in Agios Ioannis bay. Once an overview of the sailing yacht and important safety information are introduced by the crew, at 09:30 am we set sail heading to the islands of Rinia and Delos, a few miles south-west of Mykonos.

As we 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 and relaxing as you sunbathe on deck. After approximately 1 hour sailing, we will arrive at the untouched island of Rinia, separated from the sacred island of Delos by just a small strait. We drop anchor in the idyllic bay surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and a gold sandy beach, and provide you with free time to swim and snorkel around. Light lunch on board is ready and usually consists of Italian pasta with Greek flavored dressing prepared on board, Greek salad and juicy seasonal fruits. A selection of complimentary house wine and soft drinks are also offered.

After approximately 2 hours spent in the picturesque islet of Rinia, the next stop is Delos, one of the most important archaeological sites in the history of Hellenism and the setting for the tour provided by our licensed guided. We will 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 served as the center of a large Hellenistic city of about 30.000 inhabitants.

At 03:30 pm we start the return voyage to Agios Ioannis bay where the day cruise concludes around 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 returning 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.
