Let Greece amaze you

Experience the best of both worlds, above and below the Aegean Sea on a private sailing and diving cruise in Greece. Dive ancient and modern shipwrecks, watch the sunset at sea and raise the sails with us on our next adventure!

Overview

SailnDive exposes divers and their friends to Greece’s jaw-dropping natural beauty and culture, both under its crystal-clear sea and above it. Living on board a modern sailing yacht makes it possible to dive the best sites around several islands in just one week.

Above the water there’s always a new stretch of sea to explore, a different port every night, another gastronomic experience, and the lively Greek nightlife. You will experience a high-energy adventure and also relax in an ideal setting. Enjoy it all with a partner, family, and friends. Make new friends too!

Daily life

You will sleep in a shared cabin with bedding and towels provided. There are kitchen, shower and toilet facilities so we are fully independent on board. A buffet breakfast and a light lunch will be provided as well as drinks and cocktails, if you so wish, in the afternoon & evening! You will be responsible for your evening meal in the local port each night unless we moor in a remote location when we will cook on board.

There will be one dive a day and one rest day, making a total of 6 dives. On some occasions in collaboration with local diving centres we may offer night dives at extra cost. Any non-divers on board can also try diving for the first time, on request.

Before each dive you will be fully briefed and a qualified instructor will lead each dive. We will provide you with tanks, weights and tank refills.

We will either dive in the morning and sail in the afternoon or vice-versa, depending on the weather conditions and our schedule. While sailing we will be happy to teach you how to sail and give you the helm. There will be a daily briefing on the schedule and options for the day that we’ll decide on together.

Who is it for?

SailnDive is tailored for experienced divers, their partners, and friends. We also run sailing holidays. See upcoming trips for more details. For the SailnDive trips, you must be an advanced diver, be completely comfortable at depths of up to 40 metres and have all your own equipment (except tanks and weights.)

The trip is not designed for technical diving. However, if you are a group of technical divers, we can arrange a trip for you, providing support divers, if needed, and surface support. If you are a group of 5 or more we can arrange private trips – either SailnDive or just sailing.

About us

We are committed to you

We have made wonderful memories on SailnDive that will last a lifetime and we want you to as well. While diving, we follow strict safety standards and carry oxygen and a full medical kit on board. We also work closely with local diving centres to get access to the best sites and full briefs. We use only fully-licensed, modern sailing yachts, constantly monitor the weather and do not risk your safety in rough conditions. 

We will take time to get to know you well before you even come aboard so that you have a complete understanding of what to expect and know what is expected of you. We appreciate that your holiday time is precious and we really want you to have the best possible time on board. 

Our staff have lived in Greece for decades, speak Greek fluently and know the culture and the locals well. We will be on call the whole day to assist you whether you’re on or off the yacht, spend time relaxing with you and take you to the best tavernas too!

SailnDive started when two friends shared the dream of scuba diving from a sailing yacht one day, while running English language exams. Their excitement at having found a willing, kindred spirit kicked the dynamic South African/British team into action and that’s how they are now in a place to sail you around their adopted homeland!

An experienced Scuba Instructor and guide, Merryn has been diving and running diving centres in the Sporades area since she landed in Greece. She has hand-picked the best spots to show you and will guide you with an emphasis on safety and respect for the underwater world. She might even make you a cocktail at sundown after a hard day’s diving and sailing.

Patrick is a skipper and has been sailing for 20 years. He is an advanced diver, avid sportsman and musician with a fascination for ancient Greece and Greek mythology! So be warned, you will find out about the historical and mythological events of the region you will sail through! Like Merryn, Patrick enjoys conversations about almost anything, so together with her fabulous cocktails you won’t feel alone on board at all!

Testimonials

The days on the boat with the great Sail n Dive crew were the highlight of my year. Surrounded by the stunning nature of the always green Sporades we enjoyed sailing in perfect wind and weather conditions. I improved my sailing skills a lot and tried to dive for the first time. What an amazing experience – always among friendly and competent instructors, mostly native English speaking people. They arranged everything in a professional and trustworthy way and made sure that we always had what we needed – from best Greek food to free time for some sightseeing on the divers island with the ancient heritage sights.
