N. Sporades & Volos Yacht Charter
This is an area very popular with English charter customers. Much less crowded than the Ionian, it offers what can be seen as the next step up. There is more wind, and the distances are slightly greater, so it offers more of a challenge but without the stronger winds of the Dodecanese, and still less those of the Cyclades.
Flights to Skiathos are readily available in season and you can practically walk to your yacht from the airport. We are particularly fond of Skopelos town, and the anchorages of Skantzoura and Panagia are memorably beautiful. We have seen more dolphins in the Sporades than anywhere else in Greece, and for a memorable four hours were accompanied by a shoal of bonito on the way down from Mt Athos. Magic.

This is a very different experience to chartering bareboat and then hiring a skipper. The offer runs from simple 40 foot monohulls to super luxury fully crewed craft - mainly catamarans.
