Come on a Historical  Greek Galleon excursion with
Odysseia

Sun, Fun and a delicious barbeque make this a day of your holiday you will never forget!

Built in the boatyards of Vliho on Lefkas (one of the few boatyards that still builds boats from wood, using traditional methods), the Odysseia is a replica of an authentic Greek War Galleon. She is one of the best known boats in the Ionian and is captained by Gerry and his crew. Lefkas is an unspoilt island rich in vegetation and wild life with  crystal clear seas being the home of a well known population of dolphins and turtles - an early start often ensures that we  meet the dolphins. Mariedo who is Gerry's French wife will introduce you to Greek traditions of hospitality, history, religion and way of life.  Mariedo speaks English, Italian, French and Greek so you will be guaranteed a superb day out. Our cruise is a day of constant variety and we stay in the calm waters between Lefkas, Meganissi and the Greek Mainland.

The day begins with a cruise to the neighbouring island of Meganissi
visiting the famous Sea Cave of Papanikolis.

Local legend has it, that the cave was used to hide a Greek submarine during the Second World War.

We next arrive at beautiful Spilia Bay on the North Coast of Meganissi. You have ample time here to walk up to the traditional hillside village of Spartohori, with its narrow alleys, tavernas and old olive pressing factory.
You will take a break and relax into the peaceful local ambiance, enjoying a little refreshment at the traditional "cafenion".


There will also be an interesting and informative visit to the olive press factory.
Mariedo will help you to experience and understand this traditional Greek Village in a way rarely seen as a tourist. If you just prefer to stay in the bay then there is good, safe swimming next to the welcoming tavernas.

A beautiful unspoilt beach is our next stop for three hours.
 crystal clear water, a perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling.
We provide you with all the equipment you need, including rings, umbrellas, masks, armbands and even fishing lines if you are quick enough to catch the cheeky Greek fish!!
If you are not lucky enough to catch your lunch, don't worry, the Captain and his crew will be cooking you a delicious barbeque lunch served with red and white wine and soft drinks - guaranteed to fill!!

We will stop for a swim off the famous Onassis island of Skorpios
and you will learn the real story of Onassis and what he was like to work with. Gerry was the Engineer on his cruiser 'Christina' and knew him personally.
We use our magnificent sails on the homeward leg


of this wonderful journey, giving you the feel of how it was to travel in the style of the ancient Greek hero Ulysses, on his epic 10 year voyage back to his Kingdom of Ithaka (believed by some archaeologists to have been the Island of Lefkas).
Three thousand years of Greek history, tradition, music and dancing, all in one day. 
We are recommended by the British Rough Guide.
