Sailing Holidays

Sunvil Holidays are partnered with Activity Holidays Greece to offer sailing holidays that are as flexible as possible. We aim to provide the perfect holiday for everyone.

Whether you are an experienced skipper or new to sailing, travelling alone or as a couple, group or family, we can provide an enjoyable and memorable sailing holiday, which can be linked with time ashore in accommodation if wished.

Our sailing base is Nidri in Lefkas which is often hailed as the ‘sailing capital’ of Greece, and with good reason; the sheltered waters, favourable wind conditions and safe anchorages in the heart of some of the most stunning island scenery make this part of the Ionian Sea ideal for both the novice and experienced sailor.

We offer a range of sailing options to suit all requirements.

Learn to Sail and Cabin Charter
Chartering a cabin on one of our teaching yachts is an excellent option for anyone who would like to enjoy the experience of being on a skippered yacht and able to meet like-minded people and make new friends. This gives the flexibility to do as much or as little as each person wishes. This is, after all, your holiday.

Our Learn to Sail courses are designed for both beginners and experienced sailors who want to learn as much as they can from our Skippers/Instructors. It is the perfect introduction to yachting for those who want a ‘hands on’ experience; or pure unadulterated relaxation for those who just want to be a passenger.

Tuition yachts normally sail in company with our flotilla (see below). The flotilla route is run throughout the season, typically May to October, and usually takes in the islands of Lefkas, Meganissi, Kalamos, Ithaca and Kefalonia as well as smaller islands along the way.

Price Guide:

  • £824-£1138 per person (double cabin)
  • £1024 - £1488 (single) for a 1 week sailing holiday
  • Plus on-site charges for log books where appropriate, fuel, linen etc.
  • These prices include flights from Gatwick and transfers.

Skippered Charter

If you want the yacht and skipper to yourself, 2 and 3 cabin boats are available. You can sail with the miniflotilla or not, as you desire, and as hands-on or hands-off as you wish. Please note the skipper sleeps on board, usually in the lounge. Prices on application.

Mini-Flotilla Sailing
Sailing in the company of other yachts, kept small and personal. run as a small group of yachts, normally 3 to 5 sailing the same route. This holiday option combines the freedom of sailing on your own with the security of a small group with a lead boat skipper/guide.

Bareboat Charter
For experienced sailors who want to go it alone. To skipper a yacht on your own you must have at least an ICC certificate or equivalent and at least one other crew member must be up to a Yacht Crew level of experience.

Please contact Activity Holidays Greece for a bespoke quote for a standalone flotilla/bareboat package including flights and transfers.
