This sailing experience starts early in the morning, by picking you up with our luxury vehicle. After a short drive through the countryside, you will arrive at the marina where your sailboat will be waiting.

Set sail into the Ionian Sea and after approx. 2 hours in the open, but safe sea, enjoy the sun and the fresh fruit and beverages especially prepared for you. With the great view of the unique coast as your companion, you will reach the gulf of Saint Andreas; an absolutely amazing place! The site is of special interest, as the sunken city of Ancient Pheia still lies in the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea.

Your trip will continue by approaching by sea one of the oldest wineries in the area, the Mercury Winery. A quick walk through the path will lead you to the facilities of this great estate, where one of the owners will welcome you and guide you through the facilities!

Your vehicle will be at your disposal at all times. Before completing this ultimate sailing experience, enjoy your lunch in one of the most traditional and non-touristic local fish tavernas.

 

  • Once we embark, the skipper will give you all the necessary information of how to navigate a sailing boat and if the weather conditions and your mood allow it, why not, you may even join him!
  • Enjoy the sun and the fresh fruit and beverages especially prepared for you; with a great view of the coast, you will reach the gulf of Agios Andreas, where the ancient sunken city of Pheia still lies.
  • There you will be given an extra option, apart from swimming in the crystal clear water; snorkeling!
  • Feel privileged, as you will be away from the crowded beach of Agios Andreas (one of the most famous ones in the area) while enjoying also a view of the islet called Tigani (= frying pan!) and the pine forest of the mainland!!
  • An absolutely great experience as you will be able to get off the boat and with a tender reach the private marina of the winery.
  • A quick walk through the path will lead you to the facilities of this great estate, where one of the owners will welcome you and guide you through the facilities! Don't miss visiting the cellars where the red wine is matured!
  • Of course, a wine tasting is a Must Do, as the wines of the estate have been awarded abroad, even though the total production does not exceed the 200.000 bottles of red and white wine.
  • Finally, enjoy lunch in one of the most traditional and non-touristic local tavernas located in the heart of the countryside; there you will be able to enjoy the local Greek cuisine and the catch of the day, as the owner is a fisherman himself!
