When you receive the crew list please complete and return it it as soon as possible. If you have booked a crewed charter and have been sent a preference sheet please complete and return this as soon as possible (within 7 days of your charter start date).

If you have booked a skippered or bareboat charter and want to use the pre-charter provisioning/shopping service please complete your order as soon as you can, ideally within 5-7 days of your charter start date. We hope you have a wonderful time exploring the Greek Islands - Happy Sailing!  


El. Venizelos International Airport is 30km from the base and approximately 35 minutes in a taxi. There are always taxis waiting at arrivals at the airport but there are also many private transfer companies operating independantly from Athens airport. 

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.

  • For bareboat charters make your way to the Athenian Yachts base (please see map below). As base offices are usually small its a good idea for other crew members to make their way to a nearby cafe and enjoy a cool drink or bite to eat.
  • For skippered and crewed charters your skipper/crew will meet you at the Athenian Yachts base.

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).

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. Don’t forget your passport(s)/ID.

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.
