Adventure tour operator Gap Adventures is offering 20 percent discounts on all Greek Islands Sailing Adventures departing May and June 2011. The tours take place onboard the line's 50-foot, eight-berth yachts, sailing around Mykonos, Santorini, Kos and Athens.
Among the trips, the eight-day trip from Mykonos to Santorini is priced at $1,000, per person, using trip code GVMS, and the 10-day sailing out of Santorini roundtrip, with the trip code GVSS, is priced at $1,424, complementing Gap Adventures' 22-day tour from Kos to Athens, priced at $2,840 with the trip code GVKA.
During their sailing, clients can spend the day hiking, swimming and snorkeling alongside exploring Greece's archaeological landscape, trying Greece's anise-flavored apertif Ouzo at any of the tavernas along the harbor, checking out local shopping and visiting islands including Naxos, Paros and Ios.
Onboard, clients can choose to sleep under the stars, weather-allowing. Alternately, passengers can take a cue from the captain who will offer guests the opportunity to steer the boat, pull (or weigh) the anchor, learn about navigation and the boat, and work with the sails, weather permitting.
