WINING & DINING

Your holiday will include a wonderful mix of meals at island tavernas and succulent meals on board.

Menus aboard are created based on the local cuisine your personal preferences and the fresh ingredients we find in local markets on the islands — there is no standard menu. Every meal is designed to suit your dietary likes and needs.

Before your holiday we’ll ask you to complete a dietary preference to tell us what you like and dislike, and of any dietary restrictions, you and your guests may have.

We’ll also ask what you like to drink, and stock the yacht with your favorite beer, wines, liquors and soft drinks.


HOLIDAY PRICES

The holiday cost varies according to season and destination but starts from € 12600 per week.

New Horizons II is normally booked per week starting on Saturday. In low and mid season we can be more flexible with start and end dates and the duration of your trip. Her home base is Athens, but ask us what the options are for your specific week.

A one-week sailing holiday can be combined with island stays, but to really enjoy the private sailing experience we recommend sailing holidays of two or three-week duration.

A minimum of 2 weeks is required to enjoy the full Mykonos-Santorini experience.

The holiday cost includes a skipper, sailor and a hostess/cook and cleaning but excluding VAT. Two changes of towels and bed linen are included per week.

An addition charge is made to cover fuel and provisioning. This is called the APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance) and averages around 15% of the holiday cost depending on the number of guests and your provisioning wishes.

At the end of your cruise the APA accounting is finalized and you receive a refund or an invoice to make up the exact amount.

To confirm your holiday booking a 50% downpayment is required, with the balance paid one month before departure.

Our cancellation policies can be found in our terms and conditions of booking.

Unmatched Ionian Islands Sailing Adventure!! I recently traveled to Greece with a group of friends to go on a chartered sailing adventure and it surpassed any and all expectations. It's not hard to fall in love with all the beauty Greece has to offer, but a great sailing vacation (even in Greece) can be dampened by a less than stellar boat charter or skipper. I was beyond thrilled that my experience with Greek Island Yacht Holiday, by far, made for the best vacation of my life! The captain, Walter, was an expert in sailing and knew all the good places to explore, both on sea and land. Most importantly, he took the time to understand what we wanted out of our vacation and helped develop an agenda that, combined with his local knowledge, maximized our time there. And we made changes along the way depending upon what we felt like doing or seeing, which wasn't a problem at all. He emphasized it was our vacation and he made everything happen. Walter was the perfect guide – super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We mixed great sailing with docking at villages that provided us with local culture and we even rented a car one day to go further inland to see some sights on our list. When we wanted a break from the docks, we anchored, made dinner on board and enjoyed the quiet. I didn't sleep inside the entire week. I slept on deck so I could look at the clear skies and brilliant stars. I can't recommend Walter and his company highly enough and can't wait to go back next year!!

Checkin and our were quick and effective. Everything was as agreed and described - Walter is surely trustworthy and we highly recommend his services. We hope to do it again soon!

Before my wife and I even arrived to bareboat charter ‘Argo’ for two weeks in September '18, Walter had provided us with exceptional communication and service that was a step above any regular company. When we eventually arrived to the immaculately prepared and meticulously maintained 'Argo' we immediately knew he was true to his word, and the boat was exactly as described. Cruising the Cyclades aboard ‘Argo’ was effortless and stress-free knowing the highest level of care and attention had gone into the boat – it felt like our own yacht, not a charter boat with thousands of miles under her keel! We found Walter to be highly professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful, and his local knowledge and advice aided us to have a wonderful two weeks on board. Thank you again Walter, and we hope to see you again for our next Greek Islands adventure!!

Best vacation of my life! I was hesitant about being on a sailboat with 2 toddlers, but Walter's abilities and attention to our family (along with his wife, loveliest ever, Aleca) made us feel right at home and in trustworthy hands. Walter considered all of our needs and wishes and was willing to go out of his way at any point and time. I not only hold this trip dear to my heart, but Walter and Aleca as well.

We spent one week touring Athens and the surrounding area and then ten days touring the islands by sailboat. One of the highlights was swimming in the caldera at Santorini and another was watching the pod of dolphins swim by the sailboat. Walter and his wife, who's a fabulous cook, we're the most gracious hosts. Walter arranged for everything we could ask for. We loved our vacation and would do it again in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with Ocean Nomads!

Since 2007, Walter has been our skipper every summer. Sailing in the Mediterranean is my favorite summer experience. So many unforgettable memories. Walter is a great sailor and a fantastic skipper. He quickly became a friend and someone we enjoy having with us on the boat, at dinner, etc, summer after summer. Walter knows the Med very well - the swimming spots, the good tavernas, the marinas and the anchoring spots, the local hidden bars and other gems. Highly recommended.

My family sailed with Walter and his wife and we had the most amazing vacation. The sailboat was in perfect condition, the sites changed every day and were beautiful, his wife prepared fresh meals for us every day from the different local markets where the boat docked. We highly recommend this experience of a lifetime to anyone.

My wife and I spent a fabulous 2 weeks with Captain Walter on board the “Argo” exploring the Cyclades Islands. It was the proverbial trip of a lifetime every stop seemed to be more beautiful than the last and every morning I felt like I was waking up in a picture postcard. Walter’s many years of sailing experience in the area made him the perfect travel advisor giving us valuable advice on where to go and what to see when we were in port as well as helping us navigate the various Greek specialties on the menus of the local “Taverna’s As a non sailor non boater of any type I was a little nervous about being on a sail boat for two weeks never mind concerns about motion sickness but after a few days watching Walter in action I could see he was a very safe and experienced sailor, in addition after 2 or 3 days of sailing I was happy to find my sea legs and didn’t require any anti nausea medication whatsoever! In conclusion I highly recommend Captain Walter and Greek Island Yacht Holiday you will not be disappointed 👍🏼😎read more

Sailing => ok i have (18yrs) and 1500+ hours of sailing/cruising, sail racing (yachts& dinghy) and about the same hours on repairs and maintenance in Canada... and read many books on sailing around the world. The opportunity came up to sail the Greek Islands by sailboat... and i have never done “International Sailing” and I said = for sure... and with another couple we signed up with Walter & Argo for 2 week Greek Island trip beginning of May 2018. Walter was great & we explored approx 17 islands, learned a bit about the history, ancient sites, local culinary foods, language, greek mannerisms, caving, snorkelling, hiking, swimming in hot springs, shopping, and good sailing... the list goes on and I am still not finished sorting photos Walter is also very safe on the water and I was totally comfortable even in high winds as his sailing skills are extremely good. I definitely learned a few extra sailing & boat handling tricks. I was completely relaxed and totally rested by the end of this vacation.. Would I go again = yes.. and longer Absolutely appreciated Mark Member of the LMYC Lower Mainland Yachtread more
