Absolutely recommend YachtHop! Captain Nikos and Ifigeneia made my half-day cruise down the Athens coastline an incredible experience. They were both extremely friendly, informative and hospitable. The local lunch served was delicious! My original sailing trip was unfortunately canceled due to a mechanical problem (their first ever) so Petros was wonderful enough to reschedule me for a complimentary cruise later in the week so I could still fit it in during my holiday! Absolute highlight of my trip

Dear Kim !

Thank you so much spending time to review your experience with YachtHop!

Has been an unfortunate moment, due to a sudden mechanical issue, but we're thankful we had the chance to offer the sailing experience at an alternative date.

It was a pleasure to have you on-board and looking forward to having the chance hosting you again!

Warm regards

What a wonderful day sailing with Ligo and Eve on their wooden caiques. We had great fun jumping in the waters where we stopped. We sailed from Lavrion, passed the Temple of Poseidon, stopped in a small cove and jumped in using the scuba equipments avablable on board. After the first stop we sailed towards a small island and swam with the colorful fishes. The boat is so nice, old wooden boat that rocks you to sleep while sailing between locations. Eve made us simple but sooo delicious lunch and it was a very nice moment sitting down with them over lunch chatting about the area. Last stop was in a cove by the prison island where it was really nice diving, exploring the underworld near some cliffs. Our hosts made sure we were comfortable all the time, offering wine and water but at the same time managed to make us feel all alone on the boat. Very nice experience that I highly recommend for families.

We had an amazing trip sailing with YachtHop in Greece, what an unforgettable experience. We started the Saronic Flexi sailing trip from Kalamaki Marina which is a short taxi ride from central Athens. This is a beautiful marina with some amazing yachts and sailing boats. There is also a nice restaurant called Skippers where you can get a snack and some drinks before setting sail.
The boat was fantastic, lovely modern sailing boat with lots of room, we had a cabin with a private bathroom (there were two of us travelling together) and it had everything we needed. Most of the time of course was spent on the deck enjoying the views, learning a bit about sailing and relaxing in the sun. The crew were all fantastic and a big shout out to Petros who was really helpful and great fun, it was also so good to learn about sailing and all the islands from him. The first stop was Aegina where we docked and had a great seafood dinner on the shore at a place call Remetzo. The next day we set off and sailed to Hydra and stopped for a lovely lunch on board and also some swimming. Sailing into Hydra is spectacular, this island is beautiful, the marina and all the buildings surrounding, as you get closer you see all the restaurants and shops, you don’t see any cars as they are not allowed on the island, you only see donkeys!
This was our final stop as we opted for the shorter trip, we stayed on Hydra and explored a little more before getting the direct ferry back to Piraeus in Athens. This is a fantastic experience, a great opportunity to spend some time relaxing on a boat and seeing some new islands, even very close to Athens! I would highly recommend.

We scheduled the Sail the Athenian Coastline-Morning trip. We were quite lucky because we were the only two on this trip and, therefore, it was a private sailing. Both the crew members were wonderful. They were very welcoming and kind. We sailed to a bay were we had the opportunity to swim or relax on the boat. Prior to the stop we were offered drinks and given a nice plate of fresh fruit. As we were anchored we had a delicious lunch and enjoyed talking to the two crew members. The water is absolutely beautiful, the sailing was relaxing and the crew provided us with drinks, food, information and a great atmosphere. If you want to get away from the busy city for a little sailing, this is a great trip. We highly recommend this trip and thank the crew for a great morning!
