Mykonos: Combo Sailing Yacht Cruise to Rhenia and Guided Tour of Delos

Highlights

  • Admire views of Mykonos from the boat

  • Explore the archaeological site on the island of Delos

  • Go swimming off the shores of Rhenia

Summary

Your sailing cruise experience starts when you're picked up from your hotel by complimentary transportation to reach the embarkation point. One of your cruise representatives greets you and gives you an overview of the cruise itinerary. A short ride follows from the small dock in order to embark the sailing yacht anchored out in Agios Ioannis bay. Meet your cruise representative and friendly crew, and get a safety briefing before climbing aboard the yacht. If you like, help the skipper raise and trim the sails and get a lesson in steering as you make your way out into the bright blue Aegean, or you can simply soak up the sun on deck.  Drop anchor in an unspoiled bay at the island of Rhenia for a swim and snorkel break off a golden sand beach. When you've had your fill of the water, enjoy a delicious light lunch right on board featuring Italian pasta with Greek Salad, fresh local fruits, and a selection of complimentary house wine and soft drinks. Then, choose from two different options to create your own ideal afternoon. Go ashore at Delos, the birthplace of the Apollo according to Greek mythology, for a licensed guided tour of the UNESCO-listed ruins of the ancient Greek trading and pilgrimage city (entrance fee not included). Explore the remnants of temples and marketplaces, see sacred artifacts in the museum, and hike up Mt. Kythnos for spectacular views of the island and surrounding sea. Or, take inspiration from Poseidon with another swimming stop at a beautiful Rhenia beach. With either choice, climb back aboard the yacht in the late afternoon and start the return voyage to Mykonos, where the full-day tour concludes. Your crew helps you disembark by a short tender ride to the small dock in front of the Church of Agios Ioannis where your complimentary transportation is waiting for you. Say goodbye—in Greek style—with a farewell drink toast.
