Ionian Island Fantasy Cruise

Ionian Fantasy Cruise - Our island Hopping Ionian Adventure

12 cabin traditional motor sailer

Our island Hopping Ionian adventure on a comfortable, traditional wooden-hulled motor sailer focuses on the place where modern-day island-hopping all started back in the 1960’s and 70’s – the Ionian Islands. It’s the chain of islands hugging the western Greek mainland, with a huge diversity of history and culture ranging from well known islands like Corfu, Paxos and Lefkas to stunningly picturesque Parga and some small off-the-beaten track places you probably never heard of like Meganissi and Atokos. You can choose to walk barefoot in the sands, cycle up a hill and watch the sunset into Homer’s wine dark Ionian Sea, enjoy octopus and ouzo in a fisherman’s taverna or party the night away in a cosmopolitan music bar. Our Ionian itineraries run weekly from Corfu, embarking every Monday. If you want we can book hotel stays at either end and flights too.

Don’t miss…

  • The old town of Corfu and the Venetian Fortress
  • The Byzantyne-Venetian Castle with amazing views at Parga
  • The stunning turquoise water and golden sands of uninhabited Antipaxos
  • The traditional charm of Meganissi
  • Atmospheric Gaios harbour on the island of Paxos

This cruise suits all age groups and also couples as well as single travellers.

Day By Day Itineray

Town of Corfu, Greece

Corfu Town

This is our start and finish point and arguably the most famous of the Ionian islands, with its atmospheric old town in the shadow of the two Venetian Fortresses. The interior and coast of Corfu are stunningly beautiful and well worth exploring pre or post cruise.

Parga boat - heaven on earth - Greece holidays - clear sea


This coastal resort town is in a wondeful setting, dominated by an imposing fortress well worth the climb for the unforgettable views and sunset. The town has a great choice of tavernas and bars and a lively nightlife.


Antipaxos and Paxos

Uninhabited Paxos offers crystal clear turquoise waters and a great beach, served by a solitary seasonal beach bar. We continue to the main harbour on Paxos island, Gaios which retains it’s traditional charm yet offering plenty of choice for a pleasant evening ashore



We return to Corfu with time for a swim stop en route before our farewell dinner on board. Disembarkation is after breakfast. We recommend you explore the old town and fortress, though the many delights of the island easily warrant another week ashore.

That is becuase it is a truly beautiful island with a verdant and scenic interior and wonderful beaches, especially on the west coast .
