Explore these mythic isles as people have for millenia—under sail

The iconic Cyclades are captivating, beautiful isles with significant archaeological sites, azure waters, and precariously perched, charming seaside villages. Of the 39 islands in the archipelago, only 24 have inhabitants. Our expedition visits some places largely unknown to all but local residents and discerning travelers. There is no better way to venture among these legendary isles than under sail. With the winds filling Sea Cloud’s square sails, you’ll have ample opportunities to stand on deck and watch the orchestrated frenzy of crew members going high aloft in the riggings to handset 30 sails. Land in small harbors and on guided walks, learn firsthand about the ancient history and contemporary life along these sun-drenched shores.

  • Experience the Cyclades while under full sail aboard a romantic tall ship

  • On Delos, the mythological birthplace of twin gods Artemis and Apollo, explore the Temple of Apollo, an important archaeological site

  • Immerse yourself in the lively culture, mythology, and Venetian legacy of age-old villages

  • Ride a cable car down a cliffside in beautiful Santorini

  • At Tinos, see the active pilgrimage site of Panagia Evangelistria and terraced hillsides

  • Explore Athens on a two-day pre-voyage extension, or Crete on a three-day post-voyage extension

Mediterranean aboard Sea Cloud

Day By Day

Each day is balanced with time to relish our ship under sail, and half- or full-day explorations on land. Your historian, naturalist, and local guides ensure you gain insight and an insider’s perspective about the places we visit. Scenic drives, hikes on hilly terrain, market visits, cruises along idyllic shores, and free time to walk in charming seaside villages are the ways you’ll pass the time. And you may always opt to stay aboard Sea Cloud, for more reading, relaxation, and glorious views. The point is, you can do as much, or as little as you like each day.
