How much does an Ionian Islands cruise by motorboat cost?

The price of motorboat rentals in the Ionian Islands depends on a variety of different factors.  A few of these include the number of people going on the Ionian Islands cruise, the duration of your trip, where in the Ionian Islands you want to rent and what season it is.  Below is a list of rental prices based on location.

For Ionian rentals on Zakynthos, you can expect to pay around $142 for half a day, $202 for a full day, and $1411 for a week in high season, whereas in low season, these prices drop to around $119 for half a day, $166 for a full day, and $1162 for a week.

Motorboat rentals in Corfu typically cost around $178 per day and $1245 per week.

Motorboat hire prices in Kefalonia start at $579 for half a day, $1008 for a whole day, and $7054 for a week.

To charter a motorboat in Lefkada, you should expect prices to start at around $46 per half day, $71 for a full day and $498 for a week in low season, but in high season, these prices will rise to $56 per half day, $101 for a whole day and $705 for a week.

To rent a motorboat on Paxos, you will usually pay around $101 per day and $664 per week in high season, but in low season, these prices will drop to around $95 per day and $628 per week.


Is it possible to find a bareboat motorboat charter for your Ionian Island cruise?

Yes, it is possible to rent a motorboat with or without a skipper in the Ionian Islands and provided the engine power of the motorboat is lower than 30 horsepower, you won’t even need a licence.

If you want a relaxing holiday where someone else takes care of the technicalities of sailing, you should rent a boat with a skipper, who will guide you to all the best places.  If you want a trip full of adventure though, you should absolutely take advantage of the opportunity to go Greek island hopping on a private boat without even a skipper to tell you where to go.  Both options make for a fantastic trip, so it’s just up to you to decide which you would prefer.


What weather and sailing conditions can you expect when you rent a motorboat in the Ionian Islands?

The weather and sailing conditions in the Ionian Islands change a lot depending on when you decide to go.  Usually, though, the heat during the summer can be intolerable when the Meltemi wind is no longer present to cool you down.  Temperatures during this time period usually average around 35-36°C (95-96°F), but they have even been known to get higher than 40°C (104°F).  The contrast to this is very obvious in the winter, when snow in the mountainous regions is frequent.

The coldest month in the Ionian Islands is July.  During this month, the temperatures can be as low as 5°C (41°F), which contrasts greatly with the temperature in July and August, which is usually around 31°C (87°F).  The sea temperatures are at their hottest in August, when they are around 26°C (78.8°F), and they are coldest in February and March, when they are usually around 15°C (59°F).

The wettest month in the Ionian Islands is December, which typically sees around 110 mm (4.3 inches) of rainfall.  This is very different from the driest month, July, when there is usually only 5 mm (0.2 inches).  As well as being the driest month, July also sees the most sunlight with around 13 hours each day.  Meanwhile, December sees the least sunlight, with an average of just 4 hours each day.  The wind in the Ionian Islands is strongest in July and August, when the maestro wind is predominant, coming from a north to north-westerly direction.


When is the best time for cruising the Ionian Islands in a motorboat?

The answer to this question will change depending on what you want to do during your trip.  If your main reason for going is to check out the beaches, for example, you won’t want to go in the winter, but should instead go during the summer months, when the conditions are ideal for beach related activities.  You can even avoid the crowds that the summer brings with your motorboat rental in the Ionian Islands by visiting the multitude of beaches and coves that are only accessible by boat.  The only bad thing about going during this time is that the motorboat prices will be higher.

If your main reason for a motorboat charter in the Ionian Islands is exploration, however, we would strongly advise against going in the height of the summer months.  Instead, we would recommend going either from March to May or in either October or November, when the slightly lower temperatures will make for better traveling conditions.  During these months, the boat prices will also probably be a little lower and the crowds of tourists fewer.


Which Ionian marinas and sailing areas should you stop off at during your trip?

You can start your motorboat charter in the Ionian Islands in Corfu, Lefkas (Lefkada), Paxos, Zakynthos and Kefalonia, as well as the city of Kyllini.. Although Kyllini is situated on the west coast of mainland Greece, you have direct access to the islands at just under 20 nautical miles’ distance to Kefalonia. Below are a list of Ionian marinas you can go to based on location.


What to do during your motorboat cruise of the Ionian Islands?

Beaches, bars and boutiques are not sparse on these Greek islands. Serene coves or beach parties, chic bars or raves and popular nightclubs…we believe anyone can find their perfect settings and surroundings here. 

Corfu and Zakynthos islands are known as party islands, yet they also have tranquil areas with beautiful shores and landscapes. Islands such as Kefalonia and Lefkas (Lefkada) are regarded for their bar life more than their club life and also have supreme Greek restaurants such as Blue Sea restaurant in Kato Katelios in Kefalonia. 

If you want to tour some spectacular coastlines during your motorboat charter, visit Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia and also the Arillas Beach area in the north-west of Corfu. In Lefkas (Lefkada), Porto Katsiki is beautiful and on the west coast meaning swimming until sunset is breathtaking. 


Travel Tips for the Ionian Islands

Of the islands where we rent out motorboats, both Corfu and Kefalonia have airports on the island.  Although there is no airport on Lefkas, there is a bridge connecting it to mainland Greece, so it is easy enough to reach by driving from Aktion Airport (PVK).  This journey usually takes just half an hour by car or bus, being just 28 km (17.4 miles)

You can get direct flights to Kefalonia from the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, and many cities across the UK, including London, as well as other Greek locations, such as Zakynthos and Athens.  Corfu’s airport is a little bigger and receives flights from most of the same places.  However, you can also get direct flights to Corfu from the city of Barcelona in Spain, Norway, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Sweden, Finland, Russia, and other Greek cities, such as Thessaloniki.

If you want your trip to last a little longer, you could also rent a motorboat from a nearby country or island, like Italy or Albania.
