About Us

Activity Holidays Greece have been operating yachting holidays and Learn to Sail holidays in the Southern Ionian Islands for over twenty five years. We are a small, family run yacht charter company with yachts based in Nidri on the island of Lefkas, Greece.

No telephone menus to negotiate, no trained sales people trying to sell you something you don’t want. From booking to sailing, it will be a member of our family that will help and advice.

When arriving you will meet the owner and lead Skipper, Ben and his team. 

As a family run company, we strive to exceed our guests expectations.

We are small enough that we can tailor our route to our customers as well as the changing weather patterns if needed.

Meet The Team




Having a passion for sailing at a very young age it has always been his dream to own a charter business.  Taking his Yacht Master qualifications whilst sailing in Australia and New Zealand, he has been a sailing instructor in both the Dodecanese and the Southern Ionian Islands for the last 16 years.  He is passionate about sailing and instructing and his CV includes European, Transatlantic, Caribbean and East Coast American passages, as well as regularly professionally yacht racing while in the UK.

The hidden gem behind the desk or on the end of the phone. Taryna being based in our UK office/home will always put a smile on your face as she answers all your questions and takes your bookings.   For extra credit be sure to spell her name correctly.




We call her the South African Queen.  Not only does she reside from South Africa, she is also one of those lucky people with duel citizenship from the UK.  If Shannon isn't on top of the water instructing, she is under the water instructing scuba diving. Shannon is a 'shark angel' so in the Ionian she misses them deeply. Don't worry we don't have sharks in the Ionian Islands.
