JUNE 2019


NauticEd is hosting a kid-friendly flotilla to the Ionian Islands, Greece in June 2019.

Long Line ashore in Greece

Although summer 2018 is nearly over, it’s time NOW to start thinking and planning about summer 2019. Why??? Sailboats in the Mediterranean get booked far in advance and so if we don’t book the boats NOW, we‘ll lose out on the best selection of boats.

What’s better than taking your kids and family on a sailing vacation in the Med? Having other kids and families join in on the fun-filled adventure! So, skip the summer camps, take a break from those summer jobs, and come sailing with the NauticEd team and family. Kids and families of all ages welcome!

Why the Ionians? Lush landscapes, activities aplenty, sapphire seas, smooth sailing … an ideal casual family vacation.

For more information or to reserve your boat in the flotilla, please contact or +1 (512) 696-1070.

‘Home” Base & Travel Information

We will be embarking from the main Lefkas marina, in the city of Lefkas, in Lefkada. The closest airport is in Preveza (Aktion National Airport (PVK)) which is about a 20 min taxi ride away from the Lefkas marina. You can fly direct to Preveza from London or Frankfurt among other cities. Another option is to fly into Athens prior and explore the mainland before making your way via car or bus to Lefkas. Another option would be to fly into Corfu prior and explore before taking a ferry to Lefkas.

Sailing & Mooring

Sailing in the Ionians is line-of-sight navigation. Short distances between ports along with calm sailing conditions, ideal weather, and sheltered bays make the Ionians a perfect sailing trip for a family sailing vacation.

Mooring in most places is ‘stern to’ with mooring lines or anchor at the bow. Other options include anchoring in secluded bays, with or without long-lines ashore.

 Licenses: To sail in the Mediterranean, you must have an appropriate sailing license (ICC or SLC).   For more information, visit or contact NauticEd today. Getting the SLC is quick and easy—if you are decently experienced and know your stuff!


The exact itinerary for Week 1 (June 15th embark) and Week 2 (June 22nd embark) have not yet been determined; although generally, we will be exploring the islands and ports to the south of Lefkas.

Whether you’re interested in Greek history, stunning beaches, crystal clear water, hiking, gorgeous scenery or archaeological wonders, the Ionian islands have it all.

Ionian Island Flotilla Highlights include:


Lively friendly Greek town with gorgeous beaches. Several ports. Great for nature and sports enthusiasts.


Typical Greek relaxation. Beaches, tavernas, hiking


Largest of Ionian islands; scenically stunning. Fantastic beaches, secluded coves, lush dense flora. Snorkeling, watersports.
