Sailing in Greece with Odysseus

Odysseus Yachting Holidays est. 1980, is one of the first family owned and run yacht charter companies in Greece providing stress-free sailing holidays in the Ionian islands of Greece.


Bareboat Charter

Bareboat chartering puts you in total control, but we make sure that you have the back-up and support of our staff at all times. So whether you join us on a flotilla or sail independently, we’ll help make your holidays an unforgettable epic voyage of discovery. 

Flotilla Sailing

Flotilla Holiday Sailing is ideal for novices as well as experienced sailors, who may want to socialize with people of different nationalities.
Those of you, who have never been on a sailing holiday before, may be wondering what actually happens on a flotilla…

Skippered Charter

Skippered yacht charter gives you the choice to sit back and let the skipper bring you to the magical landscapes, secret bays and beautiful little ports or use the opportunity to learn from an experienced professional.

Dear friends/ sailors,

we would like to give you the latest update on sailing in Greece in times of COVID-19.

Lock-down measures are starting to ease across Europe and the time may have come to plan a much needed holiday!  Fortunately Greece has coped and tackled this unprecedented situation very well and is now as it was also before, one of the safest destinations to travel to.

Don’t miss the opportunity of our new promotion and incredible discount of 25% for the entire season valid till end of June.  Only 15% deposit is required to confirm a booking and the balance payable three weeks prior to departure.  In case of cancellation due to unforeseen reasons, the deposit or full balance is guaranteed by offering you a credit note for a future charter valid for 2020 or 2021.

We would also like to inform you that on top of our industry leading cleanliness level, we have introduced a deep cleaning/ disinfecting cycle every week.  Furthermore we are taking all the necessary actions and precautions based on the World Health Organization (WHO), to ensure the well-being of our staff as well as our guests, so you can enjoy a smooth holiday knowing that you are in good “hands!”

Odysseus and their dedicated team are happy to welcome you on board one of our yachts!


Best wishes,

Your Odysseus Team

Sailing in Greece

Enjoy a sailing trip in the Ionian Islands: Learn about the fantastic beaches and beautiful ports and marinas of the Ionian Islands on a sailing holiday in Greece.

The Ionian Sea got its name from Io, one of the lovers of the god father Zeus from Greek mythology. The region of the Ionian Islands begins in the north on the border to Albania with the green island of Corfu (Kerkyra). Seven islands form the main group: Corfu, Paxos, Antipaxos, Lefkada (Lefkas), Ithaca, Kefalonia (Kephalonia) and Zakynthos.

“Another world, another Greece”. This is how many sailors describe the Ionian Sea and its islands. And it is true: The Ionian islands, which run parallel to the western Greek mainland coast, have a completely different character than the islands of the Aegean Sea. The Greeks call them “seven islands”, but in reality there are significantly more islands here. An ideal place for sailing!


The fairways protected from strong winds and the many smaller, secluded anchorages – some of which can only be reached with a yacht – make this area not only very attractive for classic bareboat yacht charters but also for flotilla holidays. Sailing beginners, families with children as well as experienced sailors will get their money’s worth in the Ionian Sea.

  • 5 star review  Great yachts and even greater people to help you 🙂

  • 5 star review  Odysseus is the start to a great holiday whether you are bare boat or flotilla sailing. They are big enough to run a professional service but small enough to offer a personal touch. The boats are all well maintained and the skippers experienced without being overbearing. We have had two charters here and will doubtless be back for more.
