Pre-charter Information & FAQ's Corfu


Please complete the crew list as soon as possible. If you have booked a skipper please ignore the skipper sections of the form. We hope you have a wonderful time exploring the Ionian Islands - Happy Sailing!  


If you need any help or information when arranging your travel to Corfu we will be glad to help. We can offer all the flight and travel information you will need and can arrange transfers to Gouvia Marina for you.

Please check all current proceedures and official advice for travel before your charter including Government travel advice, airport and border proceedures for all of the countries you plan to travel through.

Request a transfer from/to Corfu airport by completing the section on the Crew List

When you depart the airport terminal there will be a driver waiting holding a card bearing your name who will drive you directly to the marina. Please pay the driver directly in euros (currently €25 per car up to 3 adults & 1 child, €45 for mini bus between 4-8 people, €55 for 8-10 people). We will advise of prices for larger families and groups requiring a mini coach. Prices and capacity per vehicle is subject to change depending on the regulations at the time.

If you require a transfer at the end of your charter please speak to your driver on your arrival journey and provide them with the details of the date and time you require a pick-up and where you want to go (e.g. airport or other accomodation etc.) and your contact telephone number. If you need any further information or assistance please let us know. If you request a transfer from your driver for the end of your charter please make sure you are on time at the pre-agreed pick-up point for your driver. If you wish to make any changes to your plans or to cancel please contact the driver straight away, ideally providing at least 24 hours notice of any changes.

Your transfers will automatically be arranged if you have correctly completed your flight information on the Crew List/Transfer form so there is no need to re-check or re-send flight information to us. The transfer to Gouvia Marina takes 20 minutes from Corfu airport.


  • For bareboat charters make your way to the Dream Yacht Hellas office (please see map below). As all the offices at the marina are very small its a good idea for other crew members to make their way to the middle of the marina and enjoy a cool drink or bite to eat.
  • For skippered charters your skipper will meet you at the Dream Yacht Hellas office. We will let you know your skipper’s name and telephone number when we finalise our crew and skipper schedules the week prior to your charter.

If you have not requested help with transfers please let us know the approximate time of your arrival to the marina.

If you are going to be significantly earlier or later than expected please call Island Sailing (see contact information below).

Upon arrival please make your way to our Corfu Partner's office at Dream Yacht Hellas located within the Marina Gouvia, close to the North entrance (please see map below).

If you will be arriving at the marina after 20.00 please inform us in advance so we can make arrangements with you for boarding your yacht.

Unless you have booked a skipper you must bring the original copy(s) of your sailing qualifications/skipper's licence.

A VISA or MASTERCARD Credit Card for your yacht security deposit (Debit Cards and American Express are NOT accepted). Please make sure you have a large enough limit to cover the deposit for the yacht you have booked. If you do not possess a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card you must inform us BEFORE you travel to Greece as your charter can't commence without the completed credit card security deposit.

At least one mobile phone set up for roaming in Greece and charger – it is very important that you can keep in contact.


Travel light is our advice. Dress is casual around the Ionian Islands. Don’t forget your passport(s).

Please bring your luggage in a soft bag that will fold down without wheels or hard edges. Space on a yacht is limited and cases with hard edges and wheels will often damage the woodwork on the boat. There is a limited amount of space available for luggage storage on the check-in and check-out day only.

Bedding and yacht towels are provided on your yacht. If you have a late flight home we recommend bringing another towel if you wish as yacht towels cannot be kept after you disembark on the last day.

All yachts are equipped with sufficient numbers of life jackets, usually of a standard size. If you are not a standard size, or especially for small children it is wise to bring your own life jackets . If you would like to check about this before you come to Greece please get in touch.
