Greece is all about its islands and sandy beaches stretching over many kilometers. Without a doubt Greece has a lot to offer including sheltered bays and coves, beaches, sand dunes, coastal caves and steeps rocks as well as dark coloured sand typical of volcanic soil and coastal wetlands and wind! There are different island groups which differ a lot from each other- the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the Northeast Aegean Islands, the Argo-Saronic Islands, the Spotades and the Ionian Islands, plus the islands of Crete and Evia. Exploring by boat is without a question the best way to experience the islands. On kite cruise Cyclades we will visit some of the best kite spots in the Cyclades island group including Paros Island, Antiparos, Naxos as well as Rinia Island, Syros- the capital of Cyclades and more.
“Catching the wind determined our route and every single place we visited on this route was just magical.”
As the specialist in kiteboarding and sailing we make the most out of your vacation. The concept is simple - as all great things in life are. Kite and sail, stand up paddle, perhaps wakeboard and snorkel. Dance and chill in the evenings, sunbathe and relax in the mornings, enjoy local cuisine. All this and more while living on-board a catamaran for one week. The kite cruise Cyclades is available for individuals, couples or small groups, where you share a boat - or you can cruise with your own group or family. We offer all inclusive packages to provide you with relaxed and hassle free kite trip. This will be a vacation of a lifetime!
"Fusion of kitesurfing & sailing with life on-board a catamaran is the best option of spending your holiday, by far!".
With our Kite Cruise, we invite you to explore the Cyclades Islands. Secluded beaches, Mediterranean cuisine and amazing kite locations. Cyclades Islands provide constant and predictable winds with high probability during summer. Moreover, the Islands lie in some kind of a circular formation (“kiklos” means circle) and are close together – which makes the sailing experience even more fun. An archipelago of 220 Islands out of which 40 are inhabited, is located in the middle of the Aegean Sea, which makes them easily accessible from Athens. The famous scenery of cube shaped, white-washed houses with blue windows can be found mainly at the Greek islands of this complex.
Every route is different and adjustable until the last second. You can see a lot of Greece in a week if you are up for it or we can take it easy try to enjoy more with smaller distances – the trip is yours!
Untouched, uncrowded kite spots are waiting for you to discover them. During your kite session you are escorted by catamaran and safety boat, which gives you complete freedom while maximising your safety. You can get crazy during strong afternoon winds then relax till dinner and get crazy again in the evening.
Apart from kiteboarding, the Cyclades have much more to offer. Explore the islands and mingle with the locals in Taverns and Kafeneia, view the ancient stone gate in Naxos, navigate through the labyrinth of streets on Mykonos Island and experience their wild nightlife. We will visit the natural hot springs in Loutra and the temple of Cap Sounion. Snorkel, SUP and wake board throughout the trip.

Sample Trip Itinerary
Day 1- Athens
Depending on your arrival times we could leave the marina the same day around 5pm to go to a nice location that would interest you or spend the night at the marina.
Day 2- Kolona beach/ Merichas – Kythnos
The beach of Kolona has a particular charm, partly due to its fine, golden sand and the sea lapping on both sides. More importantly this is one of the nicest kiteboarding locations in the area. Very close to our kite location there is a small seaside village Merihas- which has kept its traditional appearance throughout the years. It is also a place where you get a chance to enjoy a fresh fish meal in the numerous taverns while sitting at a table on the water’s edge.
Day 3- Paros
Our next kite location lies between Paros and Antiparos and has a kiteboarding reputation that needs no explaining. After your session or next day we will visit Paros, Paros is a small village with a variety snow-white little houses, small churches and chapels, narrow alleys, peaceful mountain villages and beautiful, clean beaches. Antiparos is another place with a must-see sign all over. What makes Antiparos so special, besides building the wind tunnel with it’s neighbour Paros, is its famous Cave of the Stalactites and the valley of Butterflies.
Day 4- Chora / Mikri Vigla – Naxos Island
We are heading towards Naxos and the town of Chora where we could spend the night but first we will have a kite session the north east side of Paros Island which is on our route to Naxos.
Day 5- Korfos beach/ Ftelia Beach – Mykonos
Kite cruise Cyclades is taking us up north towards Mykonos Island. We will have an early start and head towards Korfus and Ftelia beach for more kiting – both near the main town of Mykonos.
Day 6-Rineia Island
Sightseeing in Mykonos before departure is recommended before we head to Rineia Island- our next kiteboarding playground. After a few days like this we could definitely use a break at the secluded beach of “the big bosom” situated on the desert island of Gaidaros. It is a beach on the island with the oldest rotating beacon in the Aegean Sea, constructed in 1834.
Day 7- Athens Base
It's Friday and we need to return to the base or at least come close to the base so we can check out on Saturday morning. Being on the Syros Island we do have some sailing to do but days are long during summer and we still have some kite spots ready for you on the way.
The cruise ends at 9am on day 8.
A Typical Kite Cruise Day
It's time to wake up, bathe in the sun or dive into crystal clear water. Fresh fruit, bread and coffee is already on board. Blue water and white sand beach surround you.
Time to set sails and get our equipment ready for a kite session. On the way a quick stop in a small cove or just jump to the water in the open to cool down.
We usually reach our perfect kitesurf location. It is time for a snack then some action. For non-kiters it's leisure time - you'll love catamaran's ample deck space for sunbathing, the swim around, snorkel, taking pics and videos of your friends. Enjoy a cold beer or an afternoon cocktail.
We set sails towards our next destination. It is still very warm at these hours - you'll enjoy the sun setting from the upper deck or the trampoline.
We reach some cute old town and the table for dinner is set. It's time for a relaxed wine and dine while enjoying the nice atmosphere.
It's time for drinks and the 'nightshift'. It's party time!! (Daily routine is for guidance only and is suited to guests' preferences. All activities will be planned in agreement with the guests.)
Itineraries are not binding and the actual itinerary can be adjusted by the host because of unforeseen circumstances or other reasons!

Lessons & Coaching
The Meltimi winds blew 25-35knts the entire time, which makes for an incredible week of kiteboarding regardless of anything else. As for the kitecruise, it was an overall great experience. Our captain, Chandre, and our chef, Polona, were wonderful, and the 44ft Lagoon catamaran had plenty of room for the eight of us onboard. Looking forward to another cruise in the near future.
Right from the start, this voyage on the luxury 40 ft Catamaran Giorgis II was a fantastic adventure. We started off in Paros, Meltemi had just started in time so we had our first session in 20 kn plus. The crew consisting of three other like-minded kite-aficionados plus of course the wonderful cook Mister 'Z' and the Captain Tomaz turned out to be the perfect line-up for the amazing week we had. The days were an uninterrupted sequel of highlights on every level: - food was sumptuous - the kite sessions we had were more than exciting also due to the strong Meltemi - the good sleep and relaxation we had in the comfy beds of the spacious cabins - the feeling of safety we had knowing you'd be fully monitored getting out on the water so that boat launching lost its initially slightly unpredictable character - the downwinders we had being accompanied by the cat and allowing us to further experiment our moves and jibes. Thank you so much, Tomaz and Zdravko, for all your never-ending efforts to make this trip as outstanding as it turned out to be!
From the day on when I put the first step on to the catamaran I felt like I was in paradise, perfect secret empty spots, perfect wind conditions, very nice company, perfect service you wouldn\'t expect on a sailing boat...thx for that on the crew and the organizer! An epic kite experience you shouldn´t miss.
