Overview

Discover the beautiful Cyclades Islands the way they were meant to be seen — from the water! On this full-day yacht cruise from Mykonos, sail across the turquoise Aegean to the uninhabited islands of Rhenia and Delos, stopping to swim and snorkel at a pristine beach cove. Customize your day at sea with either a guided visit to the UNESCO-listed archaeological site at Delos or an extra swimming stop, and savor the good life with a light Greek lunch and refreshing drinks onboard.
  • 7-hour small-group yacht cruise from Mykonos
  • Explore the brilliant Aegean on a sailing vessel
  • Swim and snorkel at a pristine beach on the uninhabited island of Rhenia
  • Customize the itinerary with a choice of two afternoon options
  • Explore the sacred archaeological site at Delos with a licensed English speaking guide, or opt for more swimming at a beautiful beach
  • Enjoy a light onboard lunch of pasta, Greek salad, and fruit
  • Cool off with Greek wine, beer, or soft drinks
  • Reach your cruise stress-free with included transportation
Your sailing cruise experience starts when you're picked up from your hotel by complimentary transportation to reach the embarkation point. One of your cruise representatives will greet you and give you an overview of the cruise itinerary. A short ride will follow from the small dock in order to embark the sailing yacht anchored out in Agios Ioannis bay.
Meet your cruise representative and friendly crew at 8:45am at Agios Ioannis bay in Mykonos, and get a safety briefing before climbing aboard the yacht. If you like, help the skipper raise and trim the sails and get a lesson in steering as you make your way out into the bright blue Aegean, or you can simply soak up the sun on deck. 
After about one hour of sailing, drop anchor in an unspoiled bay at the island of Rhenia for a swimming and snorkeling break off a golden sand beach. When you've had your fill of the water, enjoy a delicious light lunch right on board featuring Italian pasta with Greek Salad, fresh local fruits, and a selection of complimentary house wine and soft drinks.
After about two hours at this spot, choose from two different options to create your own ideal afternoon. Go ashore at Delos, the birthplace of the Apollo according to Greek mythology, for a licensed guided tour of the UNESCO-listed ruins of an ancient Greek trading and pilgrimage city (entrance fee not included). Explore the remnants of temples and marketplaces, see sacred artifacts in the museum, and hike up Mt. Kythnos for spectacular views of the island and surrounding sea. Or, take inspiration from Poseidon with another swimming stop at a beautiful Rhenia beach.
With either choice, climb back aboard the yacht in the late afternoon and start the return voyage to Mykonos, where the full-day tour concludes around  4:30pm
Your crew will help you disembark by a short tender ride to the small dock in front of the Church of Agios Ioannis where your complimentary transportation will be waiting for you. Say goodbye—in Greek style—with a farewell drink toast.

Awesome yatch crew and the Delos tour guide Alexandra was exceptionally good! She explained in sublime english how the remains of Delos helped to rebuilt many of the city’s households and habits. Totally recommend it.

Really enjoyed this sailing experience! We stopped for swimming and snorkeling at Rhenia which was followed by a wonderfully prepared lunch. And then there was a very informative guide at Delos that took us through the ruins. The smaller group was good as you got to better interact with other passengers. My friend and I had a great time and would definitely recommend this!

Tip: bring some medicine if you're prone to motion sickness as the water can get choppy.

Had a great time with the crew and other passengers. Lunch was amazing and the tour of Delos was very interesting as well. Boat was very clean and never ran out of anything we wanted to eat or drink. The crew was always helpful if we needed anything. We had 10 people on our cruise and that was about perfect, any more than that would be too crowded given the space available.

My only complaint was they dropped us off at around 830 in the morning at the dock for a 930am departure. No one was around to meet us and there is very limited shade there and no facilities. Perhaps an adjustment to the pickup time would be good.

Memorable and fun yacht trip!
The Master/captain was competent and easy going, and his mate was extremely kind and professional. The tour of Delos was very interesting, compelling, and the guide was knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip!

Loved the time allocated to swimming! It was a very hot day and the water was the perfect solution! The only thing is the tour of Delos was after all the swimming so when we got back from Delos, we really wanted to jump in the water again and there wasn't any opportunity for that. Maybe if we did Delos first and then went to Rhenia and swam, it would have been better? They had lots of cold water and everyone on the ship was very friendly and helpful!

Thank you to the amazing crew and our Delos guide! We had such a wonderful day of swimming in the crystal clear waters of Rhenia, learning more about the Island of Delos and enjoying a delicious lunch onboard. It was truly an unforgettable day!

The entire experience was amazing. You.must.do.this. Small group of 10 on our vessel. George and Kostas were fantastic sailors and so friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Allessia was so friendly and kind(even and especially after we missed our original sailing date and had to reschedule(for a charge-still SO worth it) the beach at Rhenia is gorgeous and we were given snorkeling gear. The meal aboard the boat was incredible. So fresh and delicious and a home made recipe. Delos was HOT though so do cover your shoulders, wear sneakers for walking and a hat and sunscreen are a must. Our guide at Delis was equally fantastic. She is an archeologist and so passionate and knowledgeable and a great story teller. You HAVE to do this. Thank you again to all for an amazing experience!

I booked wrongly for small-group tour. However it was much better than I expected . No regrets whatsoever if you want a quiet and calm silent tour then this is for you. The crew was amazing, they cooked pasta for us for lunch on board. They treated us like family. I forgot to bring cash for the guided tour of Delos. The crew offered to pay for us but we didnt want to go. So they brought us to another place to swim, we had about 45 mins - hour to swim. Was really really good. Something not to miss. If you want noisy and party crowd dont take small group.

A must! Loved this cruise and guided tour of Delos. The crew/captain were fantastic. Delicious lunch and beautiful cruise. It was too cold to swim but we anchored at Rhenia and enjoyed lunch and the view. Just perfect! The tour guide at Delos was wonderful. Perfect day. Loved it!

Crew, ship and food were all fine as well as the guided tour of Delos, with time to meander on our own through this ancient site. The time we spent at Rhenia seemed a bit too long. Not much to explore and the snorkelling wasn't very good.

Ahh how can put this politely. There were many issues with this trip. First we had requested to be picked up from our hotel as we knew it would be very hard to find a taxi in the island. Finally the local agency agreed to pick us up and take us to the docking area, but charged us an additional 50 Euros. We were about 10 minutes late. The boat is not bad, a little smaller than I expected and we really felt that out on the ocean. The water in very choppy in Mykonos as the wind is strong. Apparently we learned the hard way it was called the windy island. The ride to delos was hell. I normally dont get sea sick but ths boat was literally rocking back and forth at like 60 degree angels. We made it to delos with just a cold sweat luckily. I didnt feel in danger but the rocking was just too much. Delos is a cool historical island to visit. The tour guide Iffy was very informative and lovely teacher. We then went over to rhenos to do some snorkeling. That was fun and the water was gorgeous. We then had lunch and left right away to go back to shore. I knew it wasnt going to wind up good eating right before we had to journey back on the rough sea. Wish we ate lunch before the snorkeling so there was time to digest. Any way about 20 minutes in I couldnt hold down the pasta we had and needed a barf bag. First time ive ever thrown up on a boat. I dont consider myself to have a weak stomach or to get sea sick very easily, but I will warn you, the water is very rough and the boat will rock high the whole time. A couple of the girls on the boat were sacred we were gonna tip thats how high we would rock. Again, never doubted safety just way to much rocking for my stomach.

This was one awesome day and I can easily say it was the best day of our Greece trip. The day started with setting sail for Delos. At Delos, Alexandra gave a wonderful tour of the ruins - explaining in detail the history or Apollo, Zeus, Athena and many more. Delos is so well preserved and vast and I personally liked it better than Acropolis. After Delos, we sailed forward to Rhenia - a beautiful uninhabited island meant for swimming and snorkelling. After that, our guides prepared wonderful pasta on board - a sumptuous lunch followed by wine. We had wonderful company in another Swiss family and an American couple. After hours of sunbathing feeling wind-in-the-hair on the yacht we returned back to Mykonos by evening. Amazing day!

Sail yacht crew was very warm and nice, they went out of their way to make it a beautiful day for us. They even brought our iPhone that we forgot all the way back to the hotel.
Delos interesting history BUT the tour guide lady was bad.

We sailed on this small group yacht cruise out of Mykonos and tour of Delos. Here our take:
Pros: Recent model 51 foot sailing vessel which was very clean and solid. Crew was very helpful and accommodating as well as friendly. They were also knowledgeable and skilled sailors. Our day sailing included some quiet choppy seas ad heavy winds, which was fun for experienced sailors and crew, but a bit much for first timers. Unlike some other sail charters, the crew and captain hoisted sails from departure to return. The food was home cooked onboard and was delicious and plentiful. First drinks were free and additional were reasonably priced. The crew allowed us to play our own music Cds or Aux as desired. Delos tour which is an extra 12 per person is great. It was a full 8 hours of great sailing, sights and revelry.

Cons: If you consider 15-20 people plus crew on a 51 ft boat a small group then this is perfect. We were expecting 4-8 plus crew, so little disappointed. Lot of confusion on transportation to and from boat. We expected to be picked up at our hotel but got an email from Sunfos changing the plans, so we had to find taxis to and from at around 65 total. The owner/manager was extremely short and defensive with any questions we or others asked her for some unknown reason. The food while delicious is simple and not gourmet and wine and spirits are the same.
