Yacht Charter Aegean / Dodekanes


Yacht Charter in the Aegean Sea / Dodecanese

The Dodecanese are a group of islands stretching westward in a crescent between the Turkish coast and Crete. To these 12 islands belong Rhodes, Karpathos, Kos, Kalimnos, Leros and Patmos, to name only a few. Yacht charter in the Dodecanese is very appealing, both from the sailing and landscape perspective. The islands are rather bare with little vegetation, compared to the Cyclades. Some of the islands like e.g. Kos and Rhodes are greener thanks to a number of springs irrigating the islands. Sailing holiday on the Aegean Sea in the Dodecanese is an unforgettable experience for every yacht charter crew.
