Sailing trip from Lavrion: General information
Lavrion is a municipality in Attica, located between the towns of Thorikos and Sounion. In the centre of the town itself you will find many small cafés and cosy tavernas. The area around Lavrion has always been a centre for mining and quarrying. The large harbour basin is a ferry, trading, fishing and yacht harbour all at once.
The port city of Lavrion is a sought-after destination for sailors because of its location. Lavrion borders on the Saronic Gulf, a branch of the Aegean Sea. From here, the Cyclades islands can be reached within a day's cruise. The Olympic Marina in Lavrion, located in the greater Athens area, is the ideal starting point for exploring the nearby islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses with a sailing yacht or catamaran. Further south, the Peloponnese beckons with unique ancient archaeological sites and a multitude of virtually untouched bays and harbours.

Information for the sailing trip from Lavrion
We would like to point out that due to the legal situation in Greece, it is not possible to have charter contracts confirmed in advance at the port office. Greek law requires the original signature of the client on the contracts and the crew list on site. Only then can we present your ship's papers to the port captain. Therefore, please understand that there may be delays due to possible waiting times at the port police.
Attention: The Croatian coastal patent is only valid in Greece with the endorsement "International Sea".
