All-day Trip With Lunch

Set sail on our Flying Sailship and explore the turqoise waters of Sithonia, visiting many beaches in just one day. You will get the opportunity to taste some traditional Greek meze dishes onboard, swim in crystal clear waters, do some diving or relax on the deck sunbathing. If you are lucky you might even get to meet the dolphins.

Route (indicative)

We leave at 10.30 from Neos Marmaras marina. We visit Porto Carras’ small private bays and we have our coffee there, swim and snorkel around. Nice music will be on and we will start getting to know each other. After that, usually a soft breeze is out so we set sails for the Turtle island (the island between the 1st and the 2nd peninsula of Halkidiki) where we spend the next couple of hours at a nice spot. We enjoy a tasty homecooked lunch and we have fun swimming around and chilling out on deck. On the way back, depending on the weather conditions, we make one more swim stop at another picturesque beach of Sithonia. We return at Neos Marmaras port at 17.30.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Q: What is the maximum group size?

The maximum capacity on our boat for Day Sailing Trips is 9 (plus 1 crew members).
