About us

About us

Sailing Blue Yacht charter and tourism office is licensed by the Greek National Tourism Organization under license number 0208E70000443801 and operates as a sole proprietorship of Mr Periklis Gkikas, which has been active since 1998.

Periklis is a captain himself and spends 15-20 weeks per year sailing with guests and friends. (Watch his Video)

A few words by Periklis:

For many years sailing was my hobby. I was always inviting friends to sail together and I was constantly thinking, what is this that I can do to keep them happy and make them come back. So I would always have company on my trips. Indeed, everyone was excited and said that the boat trip was the best thing they had ever done.

When I decided to turn my hobby into a profession, I didn’t have to think much. I would follow the same recipe.

Providing hospitality was easy, it is one of the strong assets of many Greeks, it was easy for me to do it and also to find partners that would think the same way.

Our main concern:

What can we do for you to stay excited and come back, or recommend us to a friend?
Treat you as you were our best friend and provide you with the famous Greek hospitality. And by doing this, it seems it works. With most of our guests we become friends and we stay in contact for a lifetime.

How can we design and suggest a route that will be unforgettable?

Are the beauties of Greece, the bright sun and the blue sea enough elements for an unforgettable trip? And if so, how can we make it even better? By constantly traveling to the Greek seas, we know our homeland from end to end, our unique islands, the capital villages, the picturesque ports, the quiet bays, the enchanting beaches, the best taverns with traditional Greek cuisine.

How can we recognize what suits your needs and desires?

Having worked for many years in multinational companies and knowing different people and cultures, we knew that what is good in our opinion is not necessarily good in the opinion of another person with a different culture. We had to convey this message to all our colleagues and find ways to find out what you want from your trip. Do you prefer adventure or a comfortable trip? Do you prefer cosmopolitan life or quiet life in magnificent landscapes?

Our constant travels with visitors from all over the world have given us the experience of recognizing the different needs and desires of people. We ended up having a lot of alternative routes and options around a trunk. so that everyone is satisfied. These options are discussed both before and during the trip with the possibility of modification at your discretion.

And what about weather conditions? Is your route always safe and comfortable?

This is perhaps one of our strongest advantages. Understanding weather conditions and their possible evolution requires deep knowledge and experience of the local conditions. The design of the best possible route is always done depending on the weather and many alternatives are proposed. Even if you do not travel with our crew you can take advantage of our experience and support while planing a sailing route.

How can we ensure that our boats are in the best condition?

We entrust the operation and maintenance work to experienced certified craftsmen while the inspection of our privately owned vessels is done by the international certification company Lloyd’s. Technical partners in all Greek islands are available for corrective support.
