Im curious...how much would it cost to rent a boat of this size. I would like to take one from Porto Xeli and take it with a captain to and around Spetses. Does anyone know? Thanks!!!

Great question!

I think it depends, if you have a boating license or if you are looking to hire a private boat? I have always found going fishing is best hiring a local company that is not touristy (since I speak Greek) there are no issues. If you do not speak Greek, I would check on the location and Trip Advisor reviews to make the best selection. Hope this helps!!

Rates vary a lot in Greece and it is hard to price around. How many hours do you need? Are you looking for a tour? Will you be driving?

It depends on the time of the year, much cheaper off season, the duration and the size of the yacht. Looking at the photo you put up looks like 40' plus . For that you have to budget 500-1000 per day.

Good idea! Also, if you get a larger yacht that has more than one bedroom, you can invite a few people to join you, and you could share expenses. I've known people who have done that. They planned the itinerary and had a staff but total, it worked out to be very affordable after find 3 other couples to join them.

If you get a staff, skip out on getting a chef/cook. Get food from the grocery store or eat out
 

Best Photo Spots in Greece?

I am a photographer and I love to travel to Greece to take photos. I am scheduled to travel there again this fall, and I thought I would make a list of some places to visit. I am also wondering if you guys have any recommendations! Here is what I have come up with - chime in with some suggestions, too - I will be in Greece for at least a few weeks:

1. Temple of Poseidon - Cape Sounion (I hear there are great sunset shots here)
2. Oia, Santorini at sunset - I haven't sorted out quite where in the village yet butI figured I'd figure that out when I get there
3. Chania, Crete (I need some from here for my collection)
4. Slice of life types of photos in Athens and other cities
5. Plenty of food photos all over Greece

Let me know if you have some standout places/ types of photos I should take.

Trying to Figure Out Where to Retire in Greece...

I am not quite there yet, but I am looking to retire in Greece - I just am not sure where is the best place to go. My family is originally from various places all over Greece, and I do have family and friends all over the country. However, I am not really tied to a particular location. I was thinking that Athens might be the best location for practical purposes - there's a lot to do, plus here are a lot more "services" there (hospitals, shops, restaurants, etc). However, it might be a little more expensive than other places in Greece? I am also looking at other places, like Peloponnese, Crete, Kefalonia, Zakynthos... What do you guys think?
