The North and South Ionian Islands, Greece
We’re based on the gorgeous Greek island of Corfu, in Gouvia Marina.
The Marina is situated in a safe natural harbour, a mere ten minute taxi ride from Corfu airport. Gouvia Marina boasts a large open air swimming pool and countless bars and restaurants, where you can while away some time as you prepare to board Blue Planet.
Our routes often take us through the dazzlingly beautiful Ionian Islands, including Kefalonia, Paxos, Lefkas, Ithaca, Zakynthos and Corfu itself, as well as the west coast of Greece. Rich in history and legend, these islands all have something different to offer. Of course where finally end up, depends on the duration of your booking, the weather conditions, and how adventurous you are.
But what’s it like here?
Well, imagine the scene...
You’re sailing along on a beautiful yacht, basking in the warm Greek sunshine and refreshed by a gentle breeze. Under a turquoise sky, the clear blue sea sparkles with sunlight against a backdrop of green islands flourishing with cypress trees, pines and rolling olive groves.
Perhaps you’re taking a turn at the helm, or just stretched out in the sun. Or maybe you’re on the look-out for the area’s dolphins, turtles and leaping marlin. If you’re really lucky, you may even see a whale.
By day, you glide over the waves...swim in secluded azure bays...explore small fishing villages...and gaze on breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
By night, you wander through enchanting cobbled streets...discover lively, authentic tavernas...relax with a warm welcome and a few drinks...and enjoy a fantastic variety of delicious food, from traditional Greek to fusion and the freshest fish you’ve ever tasted.
You might be with your closest friends or your extended family. Or perhaps you’re getting to know some new friends. The days roll effortlessly by, with each one bringing new sights and experiences to make this an idyllic time you’ll never forget.
