Welcome to

Ionian Blue Sailing

Operating out of the stunning island of Kefalonia in Greece and now in our 12th year, we offer bareboat and skippered sailing holidays on beautifully maintained yachts.

If your idea of a memorable holiday includes doing what you want at your own pace then a yacht sailing holiday in Greece is the perfect solution.

A variety of short passages and exhilarating open sea crossings explain why the Ionian has become one of Europe’s favourite sailing holiday destinations. Tideless waters and steady afternoon winds make sailing in the Ionian perfect for families and less experienced sailors.

Whether you are:

  • looking for a professionally skippered sailing yacht to take you around the best parts of the Ionian cruising area
  • a competent sailor looking to improve existing skills, perhaps taking advantage of our Day Refresher, and build sea miles in a friendly relaxed sailing environment;

We can design that special holiday just for you.

“We’ve had the most amazing week sailing. Your support and knowledge really made a difference and thank you so much for your patience!” (Steve D and family, bareboat charter)

“Awesome boat, fabulous week – what more can I say?! Will definitely be back” (Vicki H and family, bareboat charter)

“We have had an unforgettable time, exceeding all our expectations. Everything was perfect. Beautiful places, lovely boat, good winds” (Olga, Sylvia and Milo)
