Welcome to our Greek Islands Sailing Adventures!

Greece is SeaScape's original "home", where we started our shareboat concept back in '91. Despite the fun we've had expanding to other exotic destinations, we're still in love with our home islands, and our wonderful local friends who make all the difference to our clients by their spontaneous, outgoing hospitality.Why the Dodecanese islands? Firstly, because they are well off the usual "package tour" routes, and so retain many of the Greek traditions which are sadly now lost to the more well-known "touristy" islands. If you'd prefer to stay within sailing distance of McDonalds - choose an Athens charter base, or visit the islands every has heard of (Mykonos, Santorini, etc). But for those of us who would rather experience a little of the "real" local culture, one has to make a little more effort these days. We think it's worth it.

Secondly, we chose these islands for their prevailing wind conditions. On average, 20-25 knots in midsummer; not too strong, as it can be in the Cyclades (getting stuck in port is no fun!); but plenty strong for some exciting sailing—unlike eg, the Ionian; very beautiful, but very little wind!

And lastly, but certainly not least - we chose this family of islands for their ambience and community feeling - the wonderful welcome which our local friends and "adopted families" give to our SeaScape Sailors. One of our guests some years ago gave us all one of the best compliments, when he wrote in our Ship's Log:

"When you sail with SeaScape, you never feel like just another tourist".

We certainly hope not.

'Dodecanese" means "Twelve Islands" - although there does seem to be some dispute on whether there are actually 10, 12 or 20! They are a very diverse and idiosyncratic group of islands; each one with an entirely different character to the next. From the well-developed islands of Rhodes and Kos; to the famous monastery island of Patmos (where St John wrote the Book of Revelations); to tiny islets, still only accessible by small boat.

They are situated in the eastern Aegean - a 50 minute plane ride away from Athens. Or ferry ride, for those with a little more time (and an adventurous spirit!). Being somewhat off the beaten track, the smaller islands have not - yet - lost their unique ambiance; the traditional Greek spontaneity, sense of fun, and community spirit still live on here.
