A 13 page guide in English from (PDF, 24.4 MB)


  • Introduction
  • Sail the Ionian Sea
  • Sail around Peloponnese and Kythira
  • Sail around Attica and Saronikos Gulf
  • Sail through the Cyclades
  • Sail through the Sporades
  • Sail the North Aegean Sea
  • Sail around the Dodecanese
  • Sail around Crete
  • Discover a variety of water sports activities
  • Useful Information

It's not very detailed, but a good starting point I reckon.

Enjoy your holiday!
