Boats are designed to be sleek, cutting through the water as they pick up speed, it’s easy to look at a catamaran and assume, because of its bulk, that it’s not the best option. However, you’d be wrong!
To rent a catamaran in Cyclades with a skipper, it’s the best thing you’ll ever do.
Catamarans have two hulls instead of one, this means they are shallower and much more stable than a monohull sailing or motorboat. This stability is important if your party includes for example, children. You’ll find it easier to get around while at full sail.
Potentially more important, is the fact that a catamaran is faster, especially downwind, than a traditional boat, and it’s easier to sail. You may have chosen to rent a catamaran in Cyclades with skipper but that doesn’t mean you’ll be doing nothing. Having a boat that is easier to sail will make it better for you to help onboard while enjoying the experience, even if you’re not an experienced sailor.
You’ll also find the catamaran offers more living space, helping you to enjoy the luxury of the big motorboats in a smaller length vessel, that will help your budget go further.
Of course, a skipper will also help to ensure that you see all the hidden delights of the Cyclades, that means getting out of the picture-perfect island of Santorini, moving past the party island of Mykonos, and it’s slightly more elite little sister Ios, and heading to places that appear never to have been touched by human hand.
The small Cyclades is a collection of tiny islands and 4 slightly larger ones, all have fabulous beaches and are uninhabited. You can enjoy nature, relax, hike, or simply enjoy the thrill of navigating around the islands and seeing them for the first time.
You can’t rent a catamaran in Cyclades with skipper and not visit Delos. This island, at the center of the Cyclades, is not the most fertile, but it is the mythological birthplace of Apollo and Artemius, it was also an important commercial center, although it became uninhabited in the 8th Century AD and has been largely uninhabited since. The 2001 census showed just 14 people living on the island.
It’s actually a UNESCO heritage site and is full of impressive ruins, a testimony to the power and innovation of civilizations past.
Your skipper will show you a host of hidden delights as you travel between the islands, but make sure you check out the churches and the community of Kastro on Paros, as well as the diverse mountain villages of Naxos, the largest of the Cyclade islands. It’s here you’ll also find Mount Zeus, you can climb to the top and look across the whole of the Cyclades.
If you don’t mind doing a little hiking then it’s worth stopping at Amorgos, there are many walking trails and some stunning monasteries and chapels to discover.
It’s also worth taking a look at Syros, the smallest island in the Cyclades but the most populated and the administrative center. There’s a range of architectural styles in the city, with some excellent neoclassical examples. You should also cruise around the coast to enjoy the various beaches and coves, many of which are only accessible by boat.
