Nafplion is the first capital of the modern Greek state and a seaport town in the Peloponnese that stands out for its charming and picturesque character.
Nafplion has recently grown into a tourist destination on its own, offering a journey through time with a plethora of ancient & historic sites, including the popular Palamidi Fortress which towers over the town.
Yacht charters from Nafplio can take advantage of its close location to other ancient sites on mainland Greece and the nearby Saronic islands including Spetses and Hydra.
We maintain a sizable fleet in Nafplio including sailing yachts and catamarans to suit your needs. Special charter arrangements are also available including single day charters for sightseeing and rentals for special events including company excursions, weddings or honeymoon trips.
One can reach Nafplion from Athens International Airport, approximately 2 hours (171km away) or via Kalamata International Airport which is approximately 1.30 hours and 138km away. If needed we are happy to arrange private transfers for you group, so simply let us know the details.
The Saronic Gulf islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra, Spetses and the Peloponnesian coast offer smooth sailing largely sheltered from strong winds. The Saronic route is highly recommended for easy sailing, especially in July & August, in order to avoid the strong winds blowing down in the Cyclades area. It is also preferable for a charter of less than two weeks due to the relatively short sailing times between destinations.
Along this route you will find cosmopolitan towns, ancient temples, Byzantine castles, small fishing ports and unspoiled anchorages. The wind force of the annual N-NW winds (Meltemi) is usually not stronger than force 4-5, while it gets much less strong around the Island of Poros and the Methana Peninsula. There is also a possibility for some light S-SE winds, especially in the Peloponnesian coast.
