Re: Greek Ionians or Sporades not necessarily mainstream

Having sailed on both Sporades as well as Ionian sea, I prefer the nature and ladscape of the latter but the tranquility of the former! Ionian sea is marvelous, with the nature diving into the sea, however Sporades are much less turistic thus offer substantial higher privacy and tranquility, even during high season!

Greek Ionians or Sporades not necessarily mainstream

Greece is one of the most popular bareboating areas in the world, but, there are many areas to choose from. In the Ionian Islands you feel like Odysseus on his Odyssey. For me the Southern Ionians were extra special. The passage from Corfu to the Southern Island group offers a great 2 week bareboat charter, as special to me as my trips to Croatia.

I’ve also sailed in the Sporades in the Aegean with the highlight being a playful Mediterranean monk seal in Pattiri (Alonnisos) harbor and sailing the same waters where the Greeks held off the Persian fleet to buy the famous 300 time at Thermopylae. Oh, and it's also rumored to be the departure point for Achilles voyage to Troy. We sailed out of Milna on the Volos Gulf, but, recommend bareboat chartering from the Island of Skiathos if possible.

Great sailing, wonderful food, and ancient history, make these bareboating areas extra special. Click the links above or check out my blog - BareboatingtheWorld-Greece for descriptions of my trips which offer detailed area insights, mapped voyage logs, and photo galleries that just might help you plan your bareboat charters to these locations in Greece.
