Visit the natural insular archaeological site of Delos and enjoy swimming to a secluded cove off the uninhabited island of Rhenia on an 7-hour yacht cruise.
You will be picked up from your hotel to reach the embarkation point of Agios Ioannis bay. Once an overview of the sailing yacht and important safety information are introduced, we are ready at 9:30 am to set sail heading to Rhenia & Delos islands, the center of the Cyclades and located few miles south-west of Mykonos. Our friendly crew will be happy to show you how to raise and trim the sails, to steer the yacht, weather permitting, as well as to share informative local history about the two famous islands. Chill out to the tunes of music of your choice and relax on deck sunbathing.
After approximately 1 hour sailing, you will arrive at the still untouched island of Rheniaseparated from the sacred island of Delos by just a small strait. Dropped anchor in the idyllic bay surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and with gold sandy beach, you have about two hours to enjoy your swimming, snorkeling and savoring a light lunch on board of specially made pasta with beverages.
The next stop is the archaeological site of Delos where you will have 1½ hour to 2 hours at your disposal to explore the island. According to mythology, Delos is the birthplace of Apollo, god of daylight and of music, and his twin sister Artemis, goddess of night light and hunting. Delos, a 7-km long island, was not only a famous religious center but also a major commercial center. Since 1990 the whole island of Delos has been designated a World Cultural Property and is protected by UNESCO. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the museum and walk up Mount Kynthos, where you can enjoy the stunning view of the surrounding Cycladic islands (*Flexi program for clients who prefer to stay on board - a second beach stop for swimming).
After embarkation to our sailing yacht at 03:30 pm, we sail to Mykonos. Expected arrival time in Mykonos is at approximately 04:30 pm. Our crew will help you disembark by a short tender ride to the small dock in front of the Church of Agios Ioannis where our complimentary transportation will be waiting for you.
