You don't always need a certificate in the EU . My EU flag state has no requirement for a certificate for pleasure boats and I've only been asked for it once in the EU and nothing would have happened if I did not have one.

Get this book — it’s a classic. You can dream of where you’ll go while studying the place in advance... a cheap and smart way to ‘extend’ your vacation:

...and if you go to Spartochori, there’s a tavern on top of the island that is worth the hike!

Fair Winds.

Also, recommendations for type of cat (we are expecting some friends to join us). Also, any other tips for us would be appreciated.
The Ionian sea is generally quiet, Stay North if you only have a week, a trip down to Levkas only takes about 12 hours, but there is plenty to see near Corfu.
Have a great time

Depending on where you reside you may not be welcome in Greece because o COVID restrictions. Currently, US residents aren’t welcome.

I chartered a Jeanneau 46DS from Gouvia Marina in Corfu with some family a few year ago. We spent a week cruising the east coast of Corfu, Paxos, Antipaxos, and the facing mainland coast. We had a great time. A week was just about sufficient to cover this area, moving every night. Two weeks would have been more relaxing and would have allowed us to stay two nights in the nicest places.


As others have said, do consider a monohull. Some of the prettiest harbours in this area get very full, and it's easier for the harbourmaster to assign that last tight berth to a monohull, and tell the catamaran to anchor outside the harbour.

Re: Bareboat Charter Ionian Islands

Hi friends, thanks so much for taking the time to respond and being so helpful. We have chartered a cat (lagoon 450F) for 2 weeks from 10th July. I know a monohull is easier for mooring but I really wanted the space (so we will be using the dingy no doubt to get onshore!) My next question - I am trying to find a flotilla that will let us join their group for northern Ionians (every charterer I have approach will only let us join if we charter their yachts). Any recommendations?
