In order to visit the archaeological site of Sounio and the temple of Poseidon, you may have to pay the entrance ticket which costs up to €8 per adult (Kindly notice that we decided to NOT include this ticket to the Sounio Cruise experience because in many cases it is for free and we didn’t want to charge everyone with up to 8 euros when some of the travellers are allowed to enter for free!

Our yacht travels with winds up to 6 Beaufort.

If the weather is unsafe for any reason, the cruise will be changed or postponed. You will be notified in advance if there are changes due to weather.
Printing is not necessary and not eco-friendly.
Most of the times, we only need a valid ID matching your booking.
Rarely, when technology messes up with things, we might need to see a confirmation code/email.
But that’s all we could ask from you 🙂
Our comfortable yacht with plenty of inside & outside space and the fact that we limit the number of travellers to a max of 40, still gives you a feeling of privacy.
If you want it all just for you and your friends or family, please give us a call or send us an email and we will be happy to arrange it for you.
You should definitely book in advance.
Bookings are essentials for us to organise the Sounio Cruise in a way that you will get the most of it (i.e. to determine the crew members on board, to cook the proper quantities of food, to avoid over-bookings, etc).
Wear whatever is comfortable for a full day at sea with only a couple of hours in the land.
Have in mind the temperature variation as it is usually warm in the day but it gets cooler in the afternoon.
It is recommended to have a pair of slippers as well as a pair of sneakers or other durable/suitable type of shoes for the 10′ walk uphill to the temple of Poseidon.
Please don’t forget your swimwear, your hat, sunglasses and a light jacket to best enjoy the sunset on the open deck.

Each and every traveller should be in possession of his/her valid and signed passport. Passports must remain valid for at least three months after the end of the trip.
United States of America citizens do not require a visa to enter or travel to Greece.
Citizens of other countries should contact the appropriate authorities (Consulates/Embassies) to specify all necessary details during the preparation phase of their trip.
When travelling abroad, we would suggest you to purchase a travel insurance package that best fits your needs.
Well, this actually depends on the weather conditions on the day you are about to travel.
Most of the times, waters along the coast of Athens and the whole Attica are mostly calm and winds are rarely strong.
The best thing to do is to contact your physician in advance to give you some extra advices.

Be aware that in order to enter to a church or a monastery in Greece, men should wear long pants (rather than shorts) and women should wear a skirt or dress of at least knee-height and a top that covers their shoulders.
Mobile phone coverage in Greece is very good. Even remote places have strong signal and you can speak loud and clear as long as your device is compatible with GSM network.
We strongly suggest that you should contact your telecommunications provider before your trip to check compatibility issues and possible charges that may occur.
Alternatively, you could just buy a SIM card (that’s a Greek mobile number with only 5 Euros or something) and inexpensive pre-paid cards for calls and high-speed internet and install it on your mobile phone when you are in Greece.
The electricity voltage in Greece is 220 V/50 Hz and the plugs are of type F.
Although it wouldn’t be a problem to purchase an adaptor and transformer of any kind in Greece, we suggest that you should make a purchase in your country.
