Pirates for Planet Route of our Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Dodecanese Islands and Cyclades of Greece from Rodhes to Ios

Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Dodecanese Islands:
from Rodhes to Ios

Jump onboard our Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Dodecanese and Cyclades islands in Greece! Starting from Rhodes, well known for its impressive medieval old town, fortified town walls, we will sail west into the Aegean Sea. Possible islands on our sailing route are: Chalki, Tilos, Astipalea, Amorgos, the Lesser Cyclades and eventually Ios.

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

SAILING

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.

ANCHORING

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.

PIRATE CREW

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.

SUSTAINABLE BOATLIFE

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.

How to get there

Important Notice

During the summer months in Greece, there can be very strong northern winds, called meltémi. It is not uncommon that these winds affect ferries, causing delays or cancellations. So if you’re heading back to the airport of Athens/Mykonos/Santorini to catch a flight, leave yourself a day extra to make sure you don’t miss it!

Also, if you want to make the most out of your travel, consider staying a few days longer or coming a few days earlier to visit the country a bit more.
