Sailing Holidays

Sailing holidays from Kos

Sailing conditions

Weather conditions in the Dodecanese are very favourable for a sailing holiday from Kos. Steady afternoon breezes averaging Force 4-6 from the north-east guarantee good sailing from mid-morning to early evening. In July and August the meltemi can bring stronger winds Force 5-6, but all the islands have good shelter. Temperatures average 27-29ºC.

Sailing area

The longer passages between the Dodecanese islands and stronger winds offer more challenging sailing itineraries for keen sailors. Start your yacht charter from the new marina at Kos and head south to Rhodes via the beautiful harbour of Symi, the dormant volcano on Niseros and Tilos, relatively untouched by tourism - see our suggested itineraries below.

Or sail north to the unspoilt islands of Kalymnos and Leros. On a 2-week sailing holiday you can plan a sailing itinerary to include the islands to the south and the north of Kos and include a visit to the Turkish coast, both the Sporades islands and the Gulf of Volos.

Charter yachts

Yachts are based at the new marina at Kos, right in the centre of the Dodecanese cruising area. For bareboat yacht charter from Kos we are pleased to offer yachts from 2 fleets.

"(Letter to the Azulia crew) Now that we are home again and have time to reflect on our week with you on Azulia, I just wanted to thank you both for your wonderful help in the total enjoyment of our week. We loved everything about the boat and the care you gave us. The meals were memorable, delicious and varied. It is wonderful to have such fresh and imaginative salads everyday when at sea! We loved the quiet bays, the snorkelling and swimming. It did us both a lot of good and we are so pleased to have had such a great experience on your lovely boat. Thank you for organising the lovely lobster supper and champagnešŸ„‚ to welcome my husband into his 78th year! All in all it was a superb week!"
