Manos we would like to cruise Greece next season, 2013. We have found a good base in the Ionian. But getting our RIB there is so expensive and long. Do you know of good RIB charter companies in the Ionian? The links on your posts do not seem to work. Thanks. Harry

I will give him a call to answer that, although I think that it's better for you to rent a rib from Athens, not form Ionian see.

I'm completely new here, I'm looking at things to do in my retirement and cruising around the Greek isles sounds a lovely idea and a lot of fun but I'm wondering about the practicalities of spending say a summer cruising around Greece.

Earlier on in this thread it was said berthing is free but if you wanted to visit a town is that still the case?

Also how easy is it to wild camp in Greece?

And security, how theft-proof can a RIB be made?

I'd be grateful for any advice anyone could offer.

Hi Tom,

It has been a very long time since my last visit in this forum and I am pleased to see that it thrives from all these threads I can see.

So here ti goes info about spending holidays in Greece.

Number one to spend time in Greece is to have sufficient funds. Greece is not cheap any more and specially in the islands during the summer months prices and soar. Petrol is at least 10 cents (euro cents) more than in the mainland and to rent a basic room it can range from 40 euros per night for two to an island that no one has heard before to Euro 150 if you go to more popular island such as Mykonos or Santorini.

Where to go, of course the islands. Aegean or Ionian. In the Aegean from Mid July to mid Sept we have strong north winds up to force 7 called meltemi. In Ionian the sea is a lot calmer and much more easier to cruise. However, you do not have the variety of islands and places to go compared to the Aegean.

Good place to start looking is to buy an almanac for the area and you will see what is what and make up your mind where to go.

Camping is not free and people are arrested if they caught camping on the beach. There are organised campsites on all the islands. if you have a boat you can more in any cove and spend the night without any one bothering.

Payment of mooring fees is not required for boats up to 10 mtrs (as far as I know). If you berth in a marina obviously you will have to pay a small charge. In case you decide to berth in a small cove you can stay as long as you like and you pay nothing.

Hope that helps you a little and sincerely hope that you you enjoy your time in Greece.

Yes I know Greece isn't cheap any longer but Greece is beautiful, the weather is great and and the food is fantastic. The best always costs a little more.

That new RIB of yours looks the business.
