Yacht Charter Volos

Volos is a large and busy port city on the northern sores of the Pagasitikos Bay. It is the gateway to the Pelion Peninsula and the Sporades islands. Just as Jason and the Argonauts set sail from here eons ago, you too can rent a boat and follow in their wake. Volos is both a commercial port and a harbour for leisure craft. Its long beachfront lined with cafes and restaurants is the place for an evening stroll. With Mount Pelion as its backdrop and plenty of mountain villages to visit, it is worth stopping off for a day or too, before sailing on.


Known for its appetizing seafood meze taken with a glass of tsipouro, there are many places to while away the afternoon in this manner; just like a local. The tsipouradkio is a practically a Volos institution. There is also a buzzing nightlife, a few good museums and several cultural events throughout the year.


To the east of Volos lies the Pelion peninsula. Its mountainous ridge drops dramatically into the sea on the eastern side whereas and the western side is gentler. Sailing around the Pagasitkos Bay, you can stop off at lovely villages and bays all down the peninsula.


Leaving Pagasitikos Bay, you can sail out to the Sporades islands. Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos.


Volos is well connected. There is an airport at nearby Nea Anchialos about 25 km away. The airport has charter connections with some Greek and European cities. Bus and train lines from other Greek cities and villages come frequently into Volos and there are good connections to the rest of the Pelion peninsula too.


Car and passenger ferries to the Sporades Island leave regularly from here.


The Pagasitikos Gulf is ideal for relaxed sailing, as the sea is relatively calm and the wind is friendly. There are also hundreds of places to find some shelter if the wind picks up. The ‘meltemi’ which blows in the summer usually doesn’t affect the conditions here, as the bay is protected to the east by the Pelion Peninsula. It is rather the offshore and south winds that can blow up. One could spend the whole charter week sailing around Pagasitkos Bay.
