Greece: Aegean Sea Gay Cruise

Cruise between Greece’s glistening Cyclades Islands, enjoying stops in Athens, Santorini, Mykonos, and many more.

It doesn’t take the oracle’s foresight to know you’ll fall in love with Greece aboard our gay cruise. Kicking off in ancient Athens, this Mediterranean adventure is equal parts hedonistic and historical. On the hedonist side, we’ll delight in the flavors, fashions, and fabulous festivities of modern Greece – especially on stylish Santorini and uber-gay Mykonos. Historically speaking, we’ll enjoy private tours of the Acropolis, Akrotiri, Ermoupolis, and other ancient sites throughout the Cyclades. Stand by for fun, feta, and perhaps one-too-many shots of ouzo. Opa!

ITINERARY

Day 1 Athens

Ya Sou! Welcome to Athens. Upon arrival at the airport, you’ll be transferred to our joining point hotel. Feel free to spend the day exploring the country’s capital which boasts more layers of history and culture than a slab of baklava. At 5:00pm we’ll meet in the hotel lobby for our Welcome Meeting. After everyone has gotten acquainted, we’ll sit down for our official Welcome Dinner.

Day 2 Athens & Poros

Rise and shine! We have a big day in Athens starting with a private tour of the ancient Acropolis. After free time for lunch, we’ll shuttle to Marina Zea port to board the Voyager, our home for the next week. Upon embarkation, we’ll have a safety briefing, meet our crew, and enjoy welcome drinks. Feel free to explore the yacht and settle in before our first Greek dinner on board. Afterwards, we’ll sail to Poros where we’ll spend a few hours exploring.

Day 3 Poliegos & Folegandros

Early this morning we’ll set sail for the the uninhabited island of Poliegos, known for its picture-perfect beaches and plentiful goat population. We’ll enjoy a swim stop in Poliegos’ azure waters followed by a BBQ lunch on deck. After lunch, we sail to Folegandros, one of the lesser-known islands, where we’ll stay overnight. Upon arrival, we’ll take a local bus to the charming Upper City, where you are free to wander on your own and nibble your way through its many Greek tavernas before returning to the ship.

Day 4 Santorini

Feel free to take your coffee on the upper deck as we sail to stylish Santorini. Upon arrival, we have a half-day tour planned. We’ll check out the island’s capital Fira with its narrow streets, we’ll take a scenic drive through the countryside, passing the village of Pyrgos en route to the archaeological site of Akrotiri. This ancient city was frozen in time by layers of ash from an eruption 3,600 years ago. Excavation has unveiled a sophisticated and ancient city with excellent frescoes and elaborate architecture. From here we head further north to picturesque Oia, which sits comfortably above the striking caldera. Our local guide will lead us through the town, pointing out its famous domed buildings as well as giving us insights into the city’s architecture and culture. After some free time, head back to the Voyager for a late “Greek Night” dinner on board. Expect ouzo, meze (Greek appetizers), seafood, and other local delicacies. To toga or not to toga? That is the question.

Day 5 Paros

In the early hours we set sail for Paros with a swim stop in the enchanting bay of Antiparos and a BBQ lunch on board. In the afternoon you are welcome to join our optional culture and history tour. We’ll begin at one of the most important Byzantine monuments throughout Greece, the church of Ekatontapiliani. Explore the villages of Lefkes and Marpissa (known for their whitewashed houses), Venetian architecture, windmills, and dovecotes. Our guide will lead us through the folklore museum before taking us to Naoussa, a fishing village that has blossomed into a chic city full of shops, taverns, bars, and nightlife. After some free time to pick up knick knacks, we’ll head back to the ship. This evening grab dinner at a local restaurant on your own.

Day 6 Mykonos

After breakfast, we arrive in magical Mykonos, one of the gayest holiday destinations in all of Europe, if not the world. We’ll have a totally free day here, but before you sashay your way over to the nude beaches and beloved gay bars, you’re welcome to join us on a short 2-hour walking tour of the town. We’ll visit Paraportiani church, the castle ruins, Little Venice, the Alefkandra area, the Metropolitan Church and the breathtaking unique windmills of the island. We’ll then stroll the narrow streets of Matoyiannia before wrapping up the tour. An early lunch will be included on the ship, leaving you the afternoon and evening to enjoy the local restaurant and nightlife scene.

Day 7 Mykonos & Delos

Today you’re free to sleep in if you indulged in the local nightlife, or you can join our optional excursion to UNESCO-listed Delos. This teeny, uninhabited island is just a quick ferry ride from Mykonos. On this private excursion, our guide will point out Hellenistic houses, the Sanctuary (Apollo’s temple), and the guardians of the Sacred Lake: five marble lions from the 7th century BC. Finally, we’ll visit the Theatre and the Roman quarter, where Dionysus’ ancient statues await. Lunch isn’t included today, so we’ll reconvene for dinner on the ship while we sail towards Syros.

Day 8 Syros & Athens

This morning we’ll wake in Ermoupolis (Town of Hermes) on the island of Syros. On an included group tour we’ll stroll the marble streets, learning about the island’s unique history. During the Renaissance, Syros took a different architectural path from most of Greece. It now has distinct Neoclassic, Byzantine, and Venetian vibes. We’ll visit the impressive Town Hall, the Apollo Theatre, the Captain’s Quarter, and visit a local market. It’s here we’ll grab a table at a family-run taverna and taste authentic Cycladic mezes. Back on board, we’ll have some light snacks followed by another refreshing swim stop. Finally, we’ll sail past Cape Sounion and view the temple of Poseidon from our ship. In the evening we’ll enjoy our Farewell Captain’s Dinner back in Athens’ Marina Zea.

Day 9 Departure

Sadly, we will disembark early this morning. Your trip includes a complimentary departure transfer which will be confirmed by your group leader. For those guests spending extra nights at our official finishing point hotel, we’ll also provide a transfer to the hotel. Thank you for joining our Greece: Aegean Sea Gay Cruise. Antio sas for now!

What a remarkable tour
Greece: Aegean Sea Gay Cruise
Rating:

What a remarkable tour to a country with such rich history, culture and food. Everything was perfect, and we felt, in every instance, that our Out Adventure hosts, tour guides and boat crew truly cared about us and did their best to make this trip memorable. Every day brought new experiences and towns, and we had delicious meals offered onboard and ample opportunities to explore great restaurants on the islands. But what was most special was sharing this experience with like-minded travelers, all with the zest for life and adventure!
