We will set sail on a Sun Odyssey 519 (2020) with 5 cabins and a 52′ monohull.

Day 1: Epidavros

Fly into Athens airport and shuttle/taxi to Kalamaki Marina

Depart the marina for Epidavros

Enjoy your first swim in the salty, buoyant, blue Mediterranean healing waters

Enjoy a traditional Greek meal at a famous local tavern where Henry Miller sat and stated, “The road to Epidavros is like the road to creation. One stops searching. One grows silent, stilled by the hush of mysterious beginnings.”

Day 2: Poros

Enjoy local, organic, breakfast on the boat carefully curated by our beloved cousin

Explore the ancient theater in Epidavros where Hippocrates encouraged people to retreat out of the city when they fell into dis-ease

Practice tai chi and learn the beautiful practice of Sand Painting. Sail to the cove of the sunken city for snorkeling

Arrive at the quintessential island of Poros and enjoy a gentle stroll along the water

Day 3: Ermioni

Day 4: Spetses

Day 5: Hydra

Aegina played a major role in the Greek revolution fighting against the Turks.  From 1827-29 the island was declared the capital of the partially liberated Greece
