Greece is a land of history, culture, nightlife and beauty. It brought the world democracy, drama, philosophy, the Olympic Games, literature and significant contributions to mathematics and science. All of this, in spite of, or because of, it's checkered and chaotic past. ROW visits this incredible country on a 8 to 10-day yacht tours of the Aegean Coast, exploring historical sites, shopping, mingling and soaking up the vibrant nightlife. Our small groups tour multiple islands aboard a few of the most trusted ships under the care of our Greek Captain and crew.
ROW Founder, Peter Grubb, and partner, Betsy Bowen, led ROW's first yacht trip to Greece in 1984. Since then ROW has taken hundreds of guests on yacht charters to Greece. We work directly with the owners and captains of our contracted yachts, and have meticulously organized our Greek yachting trips to show you the beauty, history, culture and fun of this beautiful Mediterranean country.
We are pleased to make available weekly departures aboard the 24-passenger Aegean Lady II, the 40 passenger H&B II and the 50 passenger Harmony V. Yacht tours of Greece are available to singles, couples and small groups, and ROW can arrange private charters for larger groups.
Greece is a land of mountains and gorges scattered over the gorgeous blue sea. Throughout time, its civilization has been carried far and wide. Greek temples can be found throughout the Mediterranean and its statues in London, Paris and America. The country is the birthplace of democracy and has a tumultuous history of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman influence.
A people of shepherds, traders and warriors, Greek philosophy, politics, poetry and theater are the very essence of Western civilization. Greece is the birthplace of the Olympic Games and modern drama and its mythology has inspired two thousand years of Western art.
While the Islands of Greece are popular among travelers the world over, it is still possible to find a secluded shore. Even today the Greek Islands have retained the enchantment that inspired Homer and Byron to write about the wine dark sea, the transcendentally brilliant light, the scent of lemon blossom and jasmine at twilight and nights alive with shooting stars. The ancient Greeks made the islands sacred to the gods, and they have yet to surrender them entirely.
