Cruising Grounds

Marina Information
It is not possible to make reservation at Greek ports. A passing through berth is generally available for the night. Your passage is not always recorded when passing through small ports. Port authorities will sometimes request the boat's papers and your charter contract. Do not forget to retrieve your documents before leaving. The average price for a night for a 40 footer: 7€, in small harbors and in private marina’s 40-50€.

Greece does levy mooring fees in some harbors, and these are not included in the price of the charter.

Most overnight stops in this area will be ‘stern to’ Mediterranean mooring on town quays. This will cost approximately 10 Euro per night to be paid at each town locally. Marina prices are considerably higher, depending on the size of your yacht.

If you stop free of charge at a private jetty it is expected that you will eat at that tavern. Shower facilities are available at most restaurants for a small charge.

Cruising Permits & Taxes
