Argosaronic Gulf Itineraries - One week

Marina of Alimos (one-week route)
Argosaronic Gulf

Day 1: If you have just arrived in Athens and need some rest to ease the jet lag, you could enjoy a drink at the marina and visit Plaka right after the sunset. See the Akropolis light up and have a delicious meal next to the archeological site. During daytime, you will get to know how your vessel works and you will have bought any last minute necessities. If you wish, we can take care of the shopping for you. Tomorrow, the Argosaronic Gulf will be there, waiting for you to explore it. Now if you have been looking forward to this journey for a long time and can’t keep your feet on the shore, set off for Poros. The travelling distance from the Marina of Alimos to Poros is 29NM. Since you have already set off early and wish to stop for a swim, you can anchor at Agia Marina, on the east coast of Egina, or at bay Kipos, on the southeast of Egina. At night, you can anchor in the port of Poros or if you wish to stay off shore, we suggest bay Rosiko or bay Neorio.

Day 2: Sail to Spetses. The travelling distance from Poros to Spetses is 28 NM. On your way there, you’ll pass by little isles Chelevinia, two tiny isles close to the coast of Peloponnese. Sail right through them and swim in the lovely waters between the coast of Peloponnese and the western isle. Keep an eye out for shallow waters. If you wish to stop later in the day, you may find that isle Kounoupi is a beautiful spot for swimming, again, near the Peloponnesian coast.
You can anchor at the old port in Spetses and spend the night there. If there are no free spots, you can moor on the right side as you enter the bay and use your dinghy to move towards the shore. Weather permitting, you could also anchor at the new port of Dapia. In case you’d like to spend the night in a bay, a good and safe choice may be bay Zogeria. It is a little further down the way (4NM), so you may need to set off earlier.

Day 3: Visti Hydra, a magnificent island of iconic architecture and strictly no vehicles allowed on its streets. The travelling distance from Spetses to Hydra is 17NM. Choose the small bay north of Dokos to enjoy your wine, swim and sunbathe on board. When you reach Hydra, anchor at the port, possibly on the second row. Alternatively, head for bay Mandraki and spend a quiet night there, just 1 NM away from the port.

Day 4: Head for the serene, rich in greenery island of Agistri. The travelling distance from Hydra to Agistri is 29 NM. Sail along the west coasts of the island and move towards the little port of Agistri. Don’t forget to stop for a quick swim opposite isle Dorousa, on the southwest of Agistri.

Day 5: Ancient Epidaurus is waiting for you, one of the most beautiful regions of the Peloponnese, with numerous archaeological sites, the most famous being the ancient Theater of Epidaurus. The travelling distance from Agistri to Ancient Epidaurus is 11NM. You can briefly stop in-between on the west coasts of Agistri where you will find two small bays. Stop and take in the lovely scenery and forestation that extends all the way to the beach. We suggest that you visit the Theater during the afternoon. Make sure you have moored your vessel at around 5 o’ clock in the afternoon, in order to have plenty of time for your sightseeing. The site remains open until 7 o’ clock and you will need some time transporting.

Day 6: Egina is your final destination before coming back. The distance from Ancient Epidauris to Egina is 17 NM. Head for isle Moni and enjoy the mesmerizing waters there. You can spend the night either at the port of Egina or Perdika, but steer clear if the winds blow west. These are both popular destinations and you should kick start the day early, so that you manage to get to the port in the afternoon and find a vacant spot, after having enjoyed sailing and the sea to the fullest.

Day 7: You should be back in the Marina of Alimos by noon. The travelling distance from Egina to the Marina of Alimos is 18 NM. Stop for a quick swim at bay Klima, isle Moni or alternatively, isle Nisida, north of Egina.

We hope you have thoroughly enjoyed your journey. Our goal is your smile and satisfaction as you disembark.
