Sailing in the Dodecanese

There are large charter fleets based in Rhodes, Kos, and Samos. The first two are very well served by flights in season, and flights to Samos are frequent as well.

All three offer attractive one week cruises

  • Good selection of charter yachts 

  • Several  attractive itineraries for a one week cruise

  • Excellent scenery wherever you go

  • Suitable for sailors having some experience because it is often quite windy (Force 5 or even 6)

  • Quick trips to Turkey are currently impossible

The interactive map below allows you to look at the marinas, ports and anchorages that are available along the way. Popups show you details of each. Below the map you will find summary details of each marina or port, and you can go from there to pages that has the full description of all the facilities at that place, plus pricing information if we have it. The system has an optional passage planning extension that is available ONLY to SUBSCRIBERS. 7 day FREE TRIAL

Manganitis

Utterly charming, but with only room for 2 yachts alongside. Fearsome rocks to port of the entry channel, and catabatic winds can make the entry very risky. If it is full, you have a long trip to safety. The little bars there are marvelous.

Fourni town

Draft

Poor holding for your anchor makes this an unreliable place to berth. There are plenty of good anchorages and the occasional pier along the west coast of the main island that make better places to stay. Fourni is wonderfully wild with few tourists; those that do come are made to feel most welcome. Join them, do.

Although noisy and very busy along the waterfront, this is a lovely spot. Shopping is good with both butcher, fishmonger, bakery, fruit & veg, & grocery all a stone's throw from the quay. Look at our Services section for specific recommendations. Our photo;

Few yachts opt for Vathi. A busy ferry port, it is also exposed to the prevailing Meltemi. Pythagorio to the south is a much better choice.

Large well protected harbour where we were made to feel very welcome. Beware fish prices however. We were badly stung. Our fault; we know better really.

Pigadia Port

Draft

Built with EU money for yachts, the harbour has been taken over by largish fishing boats, and what little space remains is semi-derelict. A necessary stopping off point on the way to Crete, and to visit Olymbos. Otherwise uninteresting. You can try the main basin, but we felt it too exposed.

Megisti - Kastellorizou

Almost within touching distance of Kas in Turkey, this is the last of the Greek Dodecanese islands. It is like an operatic theatre set with 19th century houses tumbling down the hill side. A remarkable spot. Go if you can! The Port Police can be a little officious.

Khalki Pontoon

Draft

The floating pontoon inspires little confidence, but somehow seems to hold. Beware of crossed anchors; We suffered very badly and were lucky there was no damage. Violent gusts are also a hasard - we saw the top of our keel. It is a pretty spot however, with a wide range of attractive restaurants and good food shopping. Our photo

This is a very competent marina with very competitive prices given the facilities on offer. Avoid the town quuay in Mandraki if you. Here is much preferable. You will find bar & restaurant reviews in the Services sector ot the site, and details of the other businesses located here

Lakki Marina

Draft

Lakki is not a favourite of ours generally and neither is this marina. It is expensive and our recpetion was chilly. However anchoring in the bay, while safe, is also an unpleasant experience with motor bikes and cars racing noisily round the bay almsot all night.

LEROS MARINA EVROS S.A.

Description

Draft

Although we have listed it here as a marina, the reality is that it is mainly an over-winter storage base and as such enjoys a good reputation at competitive prices. A short stay berth in high season may be less easy.
