Overview


Set sail around the stunning sun-drenched isles of the Cyclades chain in the beautiful blue Aegean aboard a thoroughly modern 18-cabin yacht. Discover an enticing blend of cultural history, natural beauty, and modern seafaring elegance while sampling regional cuisine, exploring picturesque islands, swimming in azure waters, and enjoying the world-class scenery.

Visit the popular islands of Santorini and Mykonos as well as the lesser-known but equally stunning Sifnos, Milos, Naxos, Delos, and Syros. See archaeological wonders at Tripiti, where the famous Venus de Milo was discovered, and Akrotiri, a Minoan settlement that was preserved in volcanic ash. Savor some of the world-famous wines, cheeses, seafood, and olive oils that are produced locally on the islands themselves. Enjoy a traditional dance performance, have dinner in a private home, and try your hand at producing pottery like a local artisan. All the while, relax aboard the spectacular, state-of-the-art
Running on Waves, privately chartered for our group.
