The Flying Sailship holiday experience means you’ll eat the local way, travel the local way, sleep the local way and experience the ultimate Greek Hospitality no matter what activity you choose to enjoy with us. Both crew members have spent many years in Halkidiki, have already explored all the secret paradises for you, and can give you all the necessary tips to enjoy your stay at Halkidiki, on the yacht and even show you how to sail a boat. At the same time our skipper is a very experienced, certified skipper, having great sailing experience in some of the most challenging waters of the world.
The maximum capacity on our boat is 8 people on all Holidays and 9 people on Day Sailing Trips (plus 1 crew members).
No. It is certainly welcome but not required.
For safety reasons we would prefer not to host children below the age of 6 year old. Additionally, swimming skills are a prerequisite for children to participate in these trips.
Although we love animals we would prefer not to host animals during these trips for the convenience of the rest of the group. In case the boat is booked by a whole group of friends, then animals could be travel on board.
The embarkation/disembarkation point is at Marmaras Harbour. Please note that due to sailing being a heavily weather-dependent activity, sometimes itineraries may have to change. We recommend an additional night at the beginning and end of the trip to ensure nobody misses any onward flights. Please contact us and we can assist you to find accommodation based on your needs and budget.
The skipper will allocate rooms on arrival to the boat. Single travellers will be paired up with another passenger of the same sex, and this may mean sharing a double mattress side by side. In practice, lots of passengers end up sleeping on deck, as it’s warm and there’s no air conditioning on a sailing boat.
No, there are only two toilettes on the boat (please see boat floor plan for details). Bathroom facilities are shared. Cold and hot water is available for showers, and toilets are either electronic or hand pump.
As you probably know, there is limited amount of space on the boat, so please avoid bulky suitcases, or ten pairs of shoes. Wheeling an enormous suitcase along the small deck of a yacht isn’t really an option, and you’ve got to be considerate of the people you’ll be sharing this space with for the next days. Keep in mind that you’ll probably be wearing the same outfit every day, which will essentially consist of shorts, a t-shirt, a swimming-suit and flip-flops. Below we provide you with a short list, that is not designed to be an exhaustive packing list, but it’ll get you thinking like a real sailor:
Tip: Just remember that it is a huge pain trying to haul a massive suitcase up and down a tiny stepladder.
Regarding Halkidiki, we can host you in one of our accommodation options (Alterra Vita B&B and our lovely independent apartments at the outskirts of the village). In case of no availability we can arrange accommodation with one of our business partners. Regarding Thessaloniki, we can give you some accommodation options but we do not cooperate directly with any provider.
