Tour Information

Visit the natural insular archaeological site of Delos and enjoy swimming to a secluded cove off the uninhabited island of Rhenia on an 7-hour yacht cruise with a yummy light lunch and beverages on board. Feel free with a flexi program and choose on spot either a second beach stop for swimming in Rhenia or the guided visit of Delos. It is your day cruise!


Tour Description

Meeting point is at 10:00 am at Aghios Ioannis (at the location San Giovanni of Mykonos about 5 kilometers from Mykonos Town), in front of the Church of Aghios Ioannis and a small dock. Once an overview of the program and important safety information of the sailing yacht are introduced, at 10:30 am we set sail heading to Rhenia & Delos islands.

As we sail, the crew will be happy to show you how to raise and trim the sails as well as to steer the yacht, weather permitting. As we set out across the Aegean Sea, relax on deck sunbathing and listen to an informative local history about the islands by our friendly crew.

After approximately 1 hour sailing, we arrive at the still untouched island of Rhenia separated from Delos by a small strait. Dropped anchor, we have about two hours to enjoy swimming, snorkeling by the gold sandy beach and savoring a light lunch cooked instantly on board of specially made Italian pasta with Greek flavoured dressing, juicy local fruits and beverages.

The next stop is your flexi on spot choice: either Delos for the guided tour or alternatively a second beach stop for swimming in one even more stunning pristine bay of Rhenia. It is all about a flexi program where you are free to choose the best way to enjoy your time!

Spend about 1½ to 2 hours with our professional English speaking guide by exploring the UNESCO-listed Island of Delos, visiting the museum and walking up Mount Kynthos. According to mythology, Delos is the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, and the sanctuary to both gods serves as the center of a large Hellenistic city of about 30.000 inhabitants.

Sail back to Mykonos and expected arrival time is at approximately 05:30 pm
