Explore the Dodecanese

Starting every Sunday, our Explore the Dodecanese sailing trips take you to the picturesque islands of Symi and Tilos. Hop on board on Sunday afternoon, meet your crew and leave Rhodes to sail to the pristine port of Panormitis in Symi, where you will spend the night. After enjoying breakfast onboard the next morning, you will start sailing to Tilos. On your way learn more about sailing and ropes, while sailing on a southwest course to Livadia, the harbor of Tilos. A few hours later drop anchor and enjoy the serenity of the remote island of Tilos, where you can take a bus to explore the capital Megalo Chorio, or just sit by the beach to relax and swim.

Before leaving Tilos, stroll through its port for the last time and have a cup coffee with the locals. Our next stop is the uninhabited island of Alimia. With very few knowing of its existence, the last residents left the island before the end of WW2. You will make a stop at the sheltered bay of St George, where you have a chance for a battlefield hike in the ruins of the Italian military barracks. Sleep under the stars on your final night on board, before making our way back to Rhodes by Wednesday afternoon.
