Sailing Cruises

It is time to leave the crowds, the confined workplace; to break down the walls around you and fulfil your dreams. How about to sail in one of the most picturesque cruising grounds in the world, as you explore the exotic bays of the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea.

Sailing cruises with Smart Sailing Academy:

  • Sail around beatifull Greek Islands and magnificient South Aegean;
  • IYT certified eperienced instructors / skippers;
  • Experience different places and extra ordinary activities,
  • Sail with modern, comfortable and luxorious boats;
  • Vacation with full of activities and unforgotable experiences!

Our yachts are fully equipped for comfortable cruising, unlike typical Bareboat charter boats, which have the minimum possible inventory:

All our yachts are large and comfortable, creating a spacious and stable platform for sailing. Each yacht has four double cabins in-suite with WC/shower. A well-laid out galley includes all the modern amenities (refrigerator, freezer, microwave, coffee machine, stove, oven, etc.), allowing you to easily prepare food on the yacht. If you prefer stress-free cooking, just moor to one of the restaurant piers and taste mouth-watering Aegean cuisine ashore. In addition to comfortable interior layouts and modern furnishings, our yachts are also equipped with air conditioning, TVs and stereo systems. Our yachts prove that you don’t need to give up the comfort of your home while sailing!




Witness the countless hues of blue and green, as the sea, sky and land merge into a breathtakingly beautiful visualization of the surrounding natural environment. Let all your worries be washed away by the gentle swell and all your frustrations whisked away by the lazy breeze. Start every day with absolute peace, as you awaken to the hypnotic lapping of waves upon the hull and dive into the crystal clear sea. Those who have experienced this euphoric feeling before are now addicted to it with a passion; for those who have not, it is a dream waiting to be lived! You do not need to be an experienced sailor to enjoy such pleasures, so book your sailing cruise today and make your dream a reality! 

Even if there is only one reservation in a particular program, that tour is held.

This is our 12-year company principle. We value your holiday program that you have made with care and enthusiasm as much as you do and we do not want your joy to be upset. Although our reservations are full in general, you can rest assured that the program you have booked will be made.

A typical sailing training / cruise starts from Marmaris and follows the route you have chosen.  Along the route, we can anchor near idyllic islands or in a secret cove, as you dive into the aquamarine beauty of the sea. Behold spectacular sunsets as you dine on local delicacies, fall asleep under the star-studded sky and find true peace of mind... Explore historical sites; let your eyes feast upon the plethora of sea-life, live a life you could have only have read about before! Arrival and departure to the sailing yacht is on Saturdays. You can select a route in the  Routes section. You can browse through our timetable in the Schedule section and decide on when to join. If you join as a group or if all the participants of that week agree, we can change our route. Commonly asked questions are answered in the F.A.Q. section and we are always happy to respond to your inquires in person.

Sailing shouldn't be stressful or harsh. Our modern yachts are spacious, comfortable and contain all the necessary creature comforts to make your sailing vacation as relaxing as possible. Our yachts are all 16 meters (50ft) and have five ensuite cabins each. We won't allow anything to prevent you from endlessly enjoying the Aegean paradise bays.

Sailing in Aegean

The alluring mixture of waves, wind and inner peace created by sailing is something very special. The feeling of being one with nature, whether alone or with friends, reaches a peak on the sea which nothing can compare to.
There are many places with plenty of sun, fresh winds, and sparkling waters, but what happens after the anchor is dropped in a desolated bay along the Aegean coast is magical. The warmness of locals and the spectacular historical sites...
all this makes sailing around Turkey and the Aegean sea an experience never to be forgotten. The area has an ideal climate, inviting waters and the unique beauty of each bay, the coast line and the many unique treasures you'll find along the way, makes this paradise cruise a journey not to be missed: the Turquoise coast.

Pablo Neruda's Poetry

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it's" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
