Yachting Holidays and Learn to Sail with us this summer
Activity Holidays Greece have been operating yachting holidays and Learn to Sail holidays in the Southern Ionian Islands for over twenty five years. We are a small, family run yacht charter company with our yachts based in Nidri on the island of Lefkas, Greece.
No telephone menus to negotiate, no trained sales people trying to sell you something you don’t want. From booking to sailing, it will be a member of our family that will help and advice.
When arriving you will meet the owner and lead Skipper, Ben (pictured here). Unlike a lot of professional skippers, Ben knew exactly what he wanted to do well before leaving college where he studied Adventure Sports. Taking his Yacht Master qualifications whilst sailing in Australia and New Zealand, he has been a sailing instructor in both the Dodecanese and the Southern Ionian Islands for the last 14 years. He is passionate about sailing and teaching and his CV includes European, Transatlantic, Caribbean and East Coast American passages, as well as regularly yacht racing while in the UK.
Our skippers speak fluent English and are fully qualified to provide support and guidance on your sailing holidays. We adhere to a Safe Sailing Policy that is paramount, without exception. To be commercially endorsed, our yachts have to adhere to very stringent equipment, maintenance and safety regulations and are inspected annually.
Come and sail with the team this summer.
As a family run company, we strive to exceed our guests expectations.
We are small enough that we can tailor our route to our customers as well as the changing weather patterns if needed.
We specialise in Learn to Sail Holidays to help you ‘GET INTO SAILING’ in the Southern Ionian Islands, Greece. No matter what your sailing experience, we can always help you to improve your sailing ability, be it no experience whatsoever or a long standing sailor. We know our guests are individuals and we know everyone learns at different rates. Our aim is to ensure we deliver a fun, relaxing and enjoyable sailing holiday experience that will leave you wanting more.Bareboat Sailing in Greece
If you would like to take bareboat for your sailing holiday – we have access up to 100 different sized yachts for hire. When sailing around the Southern Ionian Islands, we encourage our bareboat guests to join us on our mini flotillas, where they have freedom, social interaction along with security of a small group.

“We came back for the sixth time to sail with Activity Holidays Greece and loved the chilled out end of season atmosphere. As always the holiday was a fabulous combination of sun, sea and sailing with the bonus of meeting old friends and new for dinner and drinks in the evenings. The Greek islands were stunning Ben and Shannon were skilled people skippers - learning is tailored to your own level of ability and how involved you want to be. - Cath Gregson”
“My best ever holiday. So cool. Great for teenagers and families. I got to spend loads of time with my dad, mates, learning to sail, swimming, sunbathing, snorkelling, diving, surfing on the SUP board etc. Sleeping on deck was brilliant and we stayed somewhere new every day. Superb from start to finish, and I've told dad we should only ever go with Ben”

“Awesome week sailing on Sandy G with Ben and my new ship mates.
As a solo traveller Activity Holidays provide the perfect environment to make new friends and reconnect with old ones. This was my third visit this year and the best so far. The skippers know my level and encouraged me to build on my skill and grow in confidence, also some great banter on-board and plenty of laughs during the process.
Under Ben's watchful eye, we did some really technical stuff including friendly racing, goose winging down channel and sailing on and off anchor. Thanks dude, can't wait until next season, I will be back!”
