Route of our Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Cyclades from Ios to Athens

Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Cyclades Islands:
from Ios to Athens

Jump onboard our Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Cyclades Islands in Greece! We will start on the island of Ios, well known for its capital town Hóra, and home to important historical monuments such as the Tomb of Homer and the Odysseus Elytis theater. From Ios, we will sail northwest towards Athens. Possible islands to stop by on our way are: Sifnos, Serifos, Kithnos, Kea. After enjoying all these natural wonders, we will head back to civilization and spend our last night at the port of Athens.

Our exact sailing route (apart from departure and arrival destination) depends entirely on wind directions and weather conditions and will be decided on board during the expedition. And of course, we are happy to take into consideration our pirates’ suggestions. Let’s follow the wind!

Program Onboard

Drawing of Sailboat


Let’s go sailing, no experience is needed! You will learn all the basics of sailing and everyone can participate in the manoeuvers. Expect short passages of a few hours and sometimes longer tracts.

Drawing of an anchor


Once arrived at a good spot, we drop our anchor and stay on board the boat or go on land with our little boat, the dinghy. We spend most time at sea but sometimes we’ll visit places on land or go to the harbour.


Get ready to be active! We cooperate as a crew and help with all tasks on board to keep the boat going: sailing, cooking, cleaning dishes, keeping deck and hull clean, and documenting our expedition.

Turtle caught in fishing net and trash


Let’s keep our expeditions ocean-friendly! That means all meals on board are vegan (gluten-free upon request) and we avoid buying packaged foods. We use only biodegradable products to not contaminate our seas with damaging chemicals.

The ultimate goal of joining our expeditions is to turn yourself into a fully trained PIRATE for PLANET! Every day, we’ll dedicate some time to group activities that are in line with our values and mission to promote change for a better planet.


All contributions go fully to the organization of our expeditions
and working of our association.
