Thessaloniki Day Sailing Trip

Departure 12:00
Starting From Aretsou Marina
Duration5 Hours


Set sails with our Flying Sailship from Aretsou Marina in Kalamaria area – just 8km from the city centre. We will sail along the city famous seafront where you will have the chance to see Thessaloniki from a totally different perspective. Get a glance of all famous landmarks as they look from the sea, and explore the city in a different way away from the crowds and the traffic.

When the local soft breeze is out, you will take advantage of it to do some sailing and learn how to handle the ropes. We will sail towards Neoi Epivates area just opposite the city, where we will stop at the dock and walk to a nice local restaurant to enjoy our lunch.

On the way back you will get the opportunity to enjoy your coffee on board, sleep while listening to nothing but the sound of the waves, relax by reading a book while sunbathing on deck and during the sunset you will see a unique scenery with the sun setting behind Mount Olympus.

Every sunset is unique and the colors of the sky during the sunset change everyday. Enjoy this unforgettable experience with a glass of wine from the middle of the sea overlooking Mount Olympus from one side and the city at its best from the other side.


Flexible start time to be discussed upon booking. Depends on weather conditions. Let us advise you on the best time to make the trip depending on time of the year and specific weather conditions.
