Explore the Greek Islands

The name for the Dodecanese Islands comes from the Greek word for “twelve,” because there are 12 major and 120 minor islands located in the southern Aegean Sea, off the Turkish coast. Kos and Rhodes have been thriving centers of commerce for centuries. At the Kos Marina, we will pick up a yacht and cruise the islands to Rhodes. No matter where you go in Greece or in the Greek Islands, you will find majestic culture and abundant natural beauty. And with Turkey only a 30 minute ferry ride away, you can combine two countries in one dream destination sailing vacation.
