Insider Tip

Island-hopping is best enjoyed and understood in the quintessentially local way, yachting. Greece has a long heritage in shipping and yachting, with Greek tycoons owning some of the biggest private boats in the world. Yachting is possible year-round, weather permitting, and preferably from as early as May and as late as October. Uninhabited islands – some of them with the most enchanting beaches – offer a substantial degree of privacy and exclusivity.

How Has Blue Cocoon Gone Above & Beyond?

There was an incident where a large multi-generational family forgot their ferry tickets at their hotel in Athens. The VIP section of the ferry was fully booked for their travel date, and the hard copies of tickets could not be re-printed or re-issued. Blue Cocoon located the missing tickets and sent a team member the same day to fly to Santorini to deliver them to the client’s hotel in Santorini so they could travel to Mykonos as initially planned.

" It was an absolute pleasure Sofia, thank you so much for everything. I wish I could promise that we’ll have a longer lead time next time, but you just never know with these clients! Thank you for being so responsive and making all the transfers seamless. I have not received any feedback from the clients yet, and honestly no news is often the best kind! "

" Our trip was absolutely incredible! It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. We could not have done it without you - everything was perfectly planned and the itinerary couldn’t have been more perfect. Hands down our favorite place was Folegandros. This one was all you! Cannot thank you enough for the recommendation. It was one of the most beautiful places that we’ve ever been to and we have already recommended it to whoever asks (although we don’t want more tourists going since part of the charm to us was how local it felt!) Truly a magical place. Hopefully we can make it back again very soon. Certainly, a trip we will never forget and you were a huge reason why. Thank you again for everything! "
