This relaxing voyage under full sail showcases the scenic Turkish coast and picture-postcard Greek Islands.

Join your tall ship in the fascinating city of Istanbul and cruise the Turkish coast to the sleepy town of Dikili, gateway to the UNESCO-listed ancient Pergamon ruins. You'll then set sail for the idyllic Greek Islands. Lemnos has a beautiful harbour, while Skiathos was featured in the beloved movie, Mamma Mia, along with enchanting Skopelos.

A stone's throw from the Argolid Peninsula is the pretty island of Poros, overlooked by the incredible Temple of Poseidon, which offers stunning panoramic views over the Aegean.

Yachtman's Paradise Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Istanbul (Turkey)

    Embark your ship.

  • Day 2 - At sea

    Enjoy the facilities on board during a relaxing day at sea.

  • Day 3 - Dikili

    Dikkili is a sleepy little beach town, authentically Turkish. The harbour is lined with open-air restaurants and shops with local food specialties. Nearby, Bergama is worth a visit especially for its two main monuments: the Acropolis perched at a height of 280 metres and the Asklepion.

  • Day 4 - Lemnos (Greece)

    It was Zeus who hurled Hephaestus from Mt. Olympus to land on Limnos, leaving the god of metalworking with a permanent limp. Perhaps he was nursed to health by excellent red and white wines (fortified or not) grown on Limnos volcanic soils. The town of Myrina sits under the winding white ramparts of the Kastro, built in 1186. But even earlier ruins - one of most ancient sites in Greece - lie in nearby Poliohni.

  • Day 5 - Skiathos

    The most sophisticated of the Sporades, abounds with trendy shops where barely-clad visitors taking time off from the nearby beaches shop for expensive wisps of clothing and jewelry. Go a few blocks inland and you'll find charming flower-decked houses and gardens overflowing with fruit trees.

  • Day 6 - Skopelos

    A verdant island blessed with olive, almond and fruit trees. As you sail into the bay surrounding Skopelos town, it reminds you of a giant Greek amphitheatre. 120 churches nestle beneath the ruins of the Venetian castle, and two convents and a monastery cling to hills above the bay.

  • Day 7 - Poros

    It's barely a hop, skip and a jump from the Argolid Peninsula to the island of Poros, sometimes called Kaválria. Greece's naval academy is here, and visitors can hear the cadets' marching band every morning. The views from the Temple of Poseidon are eternal, which may be why the doomed orator Demosthenes chose to end his life here. Take a water taxi to Galatas for excursions to the fragrant lemon groves of Lemonodhássos, or venture inland to ancient Troezen or Epidauros.

  • Day 8 - Athens

    Disembark your ship.

The Captain reserves the right to modify the cruise itinerary.
