Ionian Flotilla Holidays

The Ionian remains ever popular and with good reason. Gentle breezes, secure anchorages and iridescent waters make this the ideal flotilla holiday destination. The protected waters are ideal for less experienced sailors as well as those more experienced sailors looking to relax and unwind.

Our Lefkas Ionian flotilla holidays sail from our base in Sivota, on the south of the island and visits Meganisi, Kefalonia and Ithaka as well as some of the smaller and more traditional islands and mainland destinations.


Choose From Two Beautiful Routes

Ithaca and Lefkas

Each island, harbour and town has its own character, from cosmopolitan Fiskardho, traditional Lefkas to sleepy Kastos and the pine-clad bays of Meganisi, you are spoilt for choice and there is something for everyone on an Ionian flotilla holiday.

For the best of both worlds, why not try a combination of a week of dinghy, windsurfing, kayaking & SUPing at our beach club at Nikiana Beach Club with a week exploring the islands on flotilla. The perfect Greek island holiday!

The Weather

Reliable sunshine on the Ionian flotilla is virtually guaranteed during the season between early May and late October, with temperatures ranging from the low 20s in early and late season up to the high 30s in late June through August. Sailing conditions are generally moderate with winds typically force 2-5. More challenging sailing is available further south.


Ionian flotilla holiday routes may vary during the season according to weather and operating conditions. Our flotilla crew will keep you fully briefed each day.
