Islands to be visited Paros – Small Cyclades (Iraklia,
Koufonissia, Schinoussa)
Amorgos
Welcome aboard Plenis Velis!

Day 1: The embarking port for the Cyclades is Parikia, the main city of Paros, a little island located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, just a stone-step away from Naxos, Santorini and Mykonos. Once the cabins have been assigned, we'll escort you ashore to enjoy a stroll through the little streets lined with pretty shops and cafés. In ancient Greek times, Paros used to be famous for its fine marble and nowadays there are many statues and temples that showcase these masterpieces. The typical whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches, the idyllic nightlife and delicious food are all characteristic of this picturesque village.

Day 2: The following morning we'll set sail toward a group of small islands called the Small Cyclades. They are located between Paros and Amorgos and are also known as the jewels of the Aegean Sea. Our destination is the tiny island of Irakleia – which, ironically with its roughly 200 inhabitants, hosts the biggest caves in the Cyclades! It's the perfect island to relax and sunbathe, or to go snorkeling in the clear waters or even to go trekking and discover the caves…

Day 3: On the third day, our destination will be Koufonisia – which is slightly bigger than Irakleia, with around 400 inhabitants. According to archeologists, Koufonissia was inhabited during prehistoric times and over the years it was dominated by the Venetians and the Turks. Nowadays many tourists prefer this island because of its natural, unspoiled beaches, the peace and tranquility of the area, the fish taverns and lounge cafeterias.

Day 4-5: The fourth day will take us south to the historical Amorgos where numerous Cycladic figurines and sculptures have been found and which date back to around 2700BC. This island used to be home to the temple of the Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. We will visit Chora (the old town and capital) which is characterized by a labyrinth of narrow alleys and streets that take you to many panoramic terraces, shops, restaurants and churches. You can also visit the ancient Venetial castle and a must see is the magnificent Monastery Hozoviotissa. Water-lovers cannot miss out on the opportunity to go scuba-diving or snorkeling but if you prefer to relax, you will love the natural beaches and beautiful shorelines.

Day 6: Schinoussa is the last of the Small Cyclades group of islands we will be visiting. It is but a pebble in size with about 250 inhabitants. The only village on the island hosts local shops and taverns but there aren't any other edifices. Even though the bright white and blue colours of the structures dominate the island, visitors are captivated by the greens, browns sand gold of the unspoiled surroundings. Shinoussa is perfect if you want to relax and take pleasure in the natural treasures around you. Dinner will be served on board with local delicacies prepared by our chef, while you relish the magical beauty of the sparkling stars and the glowing moonlight.

Day 7: This brings us to the last leg of our journey. We'll set sail after a hearty breakfast towards Paros, the disembarking port. We trust that you will have spent a marvelous time with us but most of all enjoyed the unique beauty of the Greek Isles. We look forward to having you on board with us again!

Despotiko - Antiparos
Welcome aboard Plenis Velis!

Day 1: The embarking port for the Cyclades is Parikia on Paros, a little island located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, just a stone-step away from Naxos, Santorini and Mykanos. Once the cabins have been assigned, we'll escort you ashore to enjoy a stroll through the little streets lined with pretty shops and cafés. In ancient Greek times, Paros used to be famous for its fine marble and nowadays there are many statutes and temples that showcase these masterpieces. The typical whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches, the idyllic nightlife and delicious food are all characteristic of this picturesque village.

Day 2: On the second day we'll set sail westwards to Sifnos which has been inhabited since around 4000BC. In ancient Greek, this island used to be very rich and nowadays we can find remains of Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age civilization. The capital is Kastro – a wonderful cozy village kissed by the Aegean Sea, it's shores lined by pretty little tourist facilities, cafés and taverns where we will probably stop for lunch.

Days 3-5: Milos is a volcanic Greek island famous for its statue Aphrodite (better known as the Venus de Milo - which can be seen the Louvre museum, Paris). We will be spending a couple of days here to explore its rich history of art and architecture as well as the magnificent natural beauty that surrounds the island. We will also be sailing to its neighbouring islets of Kimolos and Polyaigs – the latter being uninhabited – most of this little island is owned by the Greek Orthodox church.

Day 6: On the second last day of our leg, we'll sail towards Despotiko, a small island right in the center of the Cyclades, and thus surrounded by a number of other little islands. Because of its position, it offers spectacular views, and its climate is rather dry. We will be mooring in the old Pirates's Cave which the pirates used for shelter when they invaded this territory in the 17th century, killing its inhabitants. This is a spooky adventure you must not miss out on!

Day 7: On the last day of our journey we'll sail towards Antiparos, known for its distinctive beauty of whitewashed houses, cobbled streets and a myriad of colourful flowers that adorn the buildings. This island's economy is based on tourism so there is much to see and do. Whether you want to laze in the sun on the golden beaches, or stroll through the little streets and savour its unique attractions, Antiparos will remain in your heart forever. And if you're more into a cultural tour, then why not visit the Caves on the southern side of the island or even the Venetian quarter of Kastro rich in architecture. We'll then end our journey in Paros for disembarking and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Islands to be visited Kos – Gyali – Nisyros
Knido (Turkey)
Pserimos – Kalimnos
Welcome aboard Plenis Velis!

Day 1: The embarking port for the Dodecanese is Kos, an island with a pretty complex history and thus boasts influences from Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, the Ottomans, the Knights Hospitaller, and according to Roman mythology, Hercules once visited this island. It is thanks to its history that Kos today is filled with many breathtaking architectural ruins and archeological sites. However it is also well-known for its crystal clear water beaches, the numerous restaurants and taverns, luxurious accommodation and its exciting night life. We will visit this island once the cabins have been assigned.

Day 2: On Sunday morning we'll sail southwards to Gyali, a very small volcanic island of rhyolitic obsidian lava domes and pumice deposits. It hosts a population of about 10 people and it is surrounded by crystal clear blue waters. In the afternoon we'll sail towards another volcanic island, Nisyros, much larger than Gyali. Many tourists are attracted to its picturesque villages, and the island offers amazing panoramic views. We'll moor in the port of Pali so we can rent scooters or quads to visit the crater, the Medieval Fortress and the nearby villages. We'll have dinner in Mandraki, the heart of Nisyros and enjoy some great tasting Greek cuisine and the magical sunsets

Day 3-4: The third day of our journey takes us up north towards Turkey, where we will stop and visit Knidos, which originally belonged to Ancient Greece. Archeologists have found numerous Byzantine artefacts, some of which can now be found in the British Museum, UK. The Hellenistic ruins date back to the 4th century BC, and there is a temple dedicated to the statue of Aphrodite which was found in this area.

Day 5: On the fourth day we'll sail upwards to Pserimos, a tiny remote island with roughly 130 inhabitants. It is a favourite among tourists who have described this island simply as "heavenly". It is surrounded by pictorial landscapes, unspoiled beaches, and it is the perfect place to relax. There are but a handful of taverns where the most delicious food is served.

Day 6: Kalymnos is the next leg of our journey, and it lies south-east in the Aegean Sea. The buildings reflect a strong Byzantine and Venetian influence, and its turbulent history brought it under attack first by the Ottomans and much later by the Italians who possessed the island until 1947. Today Kalymnos is a popular destination for hikers and climbers as well as divers – sponge diving is its primary economy along with tourism. The villages offer many modern facilities, restaurants and local traditional taverns.

Day 7: on the last day of our journey we'll sail "homebound" to Kos to disembark. We hope that you will have enjoyed your holiday as much as we will enjoy traveling with you!

Islands to be visited Kos – Kalimnos – Leros – Lipsi
Welcome aboard Plenis Velis!

Day 1: The embarking port for the Dodecanese is Kos, an island with a pretty complex history and thus boasts influences from Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, the Ottomans, the Knights Hospitaller, and according to Roman mythology, Hercules once visited this island. It is thanks to its history that Kos today is filled with many breathtaking architectural ruins and archeological sites. However it is also well-known for its crystal clear water beaches, the numerous restaurants and taverns, luxurious accommodation and its exciting night life. We will visit this island once the cabins have been assigned.

Day 2: The following morning we'll set sail towards the north and head for the mysterious island of Kalymnos. The pastel-colored buildings reflect a strong Byzantine and Venetian influence, and its turbulent history brought it under attack first by the Ottomans and much later by the Italians who possessed the island until 1947. Today Kalymnos is a popular destination for hikers and climbers as well as divers – sponge diving is its primary economy along with tourism. The villages offer many modern facilities, restaurants and local traditional taverns.

Day 3: On the third day of our journey we'll sail to the small island of Lipsi with natural beaches and crystalline waters. Most facilities are walking distance, although there is a bus station too. The main village is very pretty, and there are plenty of shops to visit. There are also local cafeterias, taverns and bars where you can taste their famous " Ouzo" a traditional aniseed-flavoured liqueur. But tourists mostly prefer to soak in the beauty of the sea

Day 4 & 5: Over the following two days, we will visit the mysterious island of Leros. Like many of its neighbouring islands of the Dodecanese archipelago, it reflects a strong history of Byzantine and Roman Empires. It was also ruled by Alexander the Great and the Spartans. It was later seized by the Venetians and then the Knights of Saint John. During WWI, Leros belonged to Italy, and many of its buildings were unfortunately damaged in bomb attacks.

The island was finally restored to the Greeks in 1948 by the British, after nearly 700 years of being in the hands of other nations. Despite its turbulent history, Leros is a favourite among tourists. It offers wonderful beaches with facilities, endless architectural buildings and structures filled with mystery, and of course diving is a must especially if you want to see the famous shipwreck of its coast. And if the nightlife is more to your liking, then Agia Marina is the place for you where music, dancing and fun will take you deep into the Greek island nights.

Day 6 & 7: we'll then sail "homebound" to reach Kos to disembark. We hope that you will have enjoyed your holiday as much as we will enjoy traveling with you!
