Holidaying by boat gives you the freedom to really see any destination and to get the privacy you need while sampling the delights of the culture.
Once you’re at sea you’ll have a unique perspective of Corfu, seeing it as the first visitors did in all its breathtaking beauty. You may just want to sit and soak it up forever, but there is so much more you need to do first.
Choosing the right boat can be a difficult decision. If you’re an avid sailor you may wish to rent a sailboat. However, if the rest of your party is not so keen on sailing a good option is to rent a catamaran in Corfu.
Catamarans are generally more stable in the water, giving a smoother ride, which is ideal for those less keen about water-based holidays.
They are also surprisingly spacious, especially compared to other vessels of the same size. Perhaps the most appealing part is that the catamaran can be rented with sails or a motor. That means you can please the sailor in you, or decide to opt for a simpler approach and let everyone share the workload.
In fact, it’s even possible to rent a catamaran with a skipper, so that you don’t need to worry about navigating at all. This will allow you to focus on what matters, appreciating the sights and spending time with your crewmates.
It’s also worth noting that the dual hulls of a catamaran don’t just increase space and improve stability in the water, they also help the boat to remain shallow, allowing it to slide into shallow waters. This means you can get closer to the shore or even into places where conventional monohull boats can’t go.
However, perhaps the greatest attribute of the catamaran, especially if you want to leave Corfu and explore the other islands, is their speed. Catamarans are generally much faster than traditional sailboats, allowing you to traverse the Ionian sea quickly and spend more time exploring.
The speed and the comfort this type of boat offers, along with the choice of motor or sail, means it's actually the perfect choice for everyone! It’s time to take a look and arrange to rent a catamaran in Corfu!
Of course, Corfu has plenty to offer for landlubbers, but all the major sites can also be seen and accessed from the sea. You’ll want to check out the old and the new Venetian forts, the museum of Asian art, and perhaps take a wander around the streets of Kavos.
You can also cruise away from the island and head south, following the Greek coastline to see Paxos, Lefkada, Kefalonia, and a host of smaller islands. Each of these islands have their own sights to entice you, from impressive architecture, cultural reminders of Venetian, Roman, French, British, and even Italian rule, to stunning beaches. The sapphire waters of the Ionian Sea are always inviting and taming with exotic life for you to appreciate.
Don’t forget Zante, the site of Greece’s first marine park and where the rare Caretta sea turtles lay their eggs in late spring.
Rent a catamaran in Corfu and explore each of these islands, knowing that you can set your own agenda, there is no feeling like being on the open sea and Sailogy brings you the means to become an adventurer and explorer, even if only for a couple of weeks.
