Sailing the Greek Isles aboard Sea Cloud

Skip to


Explore the beautiful Cyclades as the ancients did, sailing from isle to isle under the power of the wind. The legendary tall ship Sea Cloud offers the chance to stand on deck and watch the orchestrated frenzy of crew members climbing aloft in the rigging to handset 30 sails. Our expedition visits iconic landmarks as well as hidden gems that are largely unknown to all but locals and discerning travelers. Visit small harbors and go on guided walks to learn firsthand about the history and contemporary life along these sun-drenched shores.

Return to the golden age of sail aboard this hand-sailed, four-masted ship

Traveling aboard Sea Cloud, a historic four-masted barque, is an overall multisensory experience of the rarest kind—and this is true wherever you choose to explore. The sheer opulence—antique furnishings, marble fireplaces, gold fixtures, exquisite accoutrements—of Sea Cloud is a testament to the efforts of the ship’s original owners, businesswoman and socialite heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and finance tycoon E.F. Hutton, who spared no expense in tasteful decoration. Whether you’re passively watching the athletic young crew scrambling high in the rigging, lolling in what Marjorie Merriweather Post called the “Blue Lagoon,” or learning to capture the sun on the sails with your Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, life aboard Sea Cloud is either the point or the perfect interlude between explorations.
