During your trip, you will be sharing your cabin with your travel companion or another person from your group (same-sex). But maybe you are an outdoor person and want to watch the Mediterranean sky as you fall asleep Sleeping on deck is always an option if you wish to do so.

For the days on the boat, you will not need much more than your swimwear, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Don’t forget to bring one warm jumper/jacket as the evenings can feel chilly after a warm day on the water.

Before departure, we will hit the supermarkets together to stock up on ingredients for breakfast and lunches during sailing. In the evenings, we will always overnight in harbors where we can have dinner at the local taverna’s and fill up our supplies again if necessary. The cost of food is relatively cheap in Greece, for a week you, should plan 100-150 EUR for all your shopping, meals, and drinks.

As an experienced skipper, ALT TRAVEL LTD will take care to not take any risks on sailing days so the final itinerary depending on wind force and direction. They will also be spending time in each harbor discovering the island by scooter, on foot, or enjoy a beach.
