Sober Travel

Sober travel refers to a type of travel experience where individuals choose to abstain from the consumption of alcohol and other substances. The focus of sober travel is on enjoying the journey, exploring new destinations, and engaging in activities without the influence of alcohol. This type of travel caters to individuals who either do not drink or prefer to travel without the social or recreational use of alcohol.

Sober travel and yachting can certainly be a good idea for those who want to enjoy the experience without the influence of alcohol. Yachting offers a unique and luxurious way to travel, allowing you to explore picturesque coastlines, remote islands, adventure, culture and brand new experiences that you can only appreciate when you are sober. Choosing a sober approach can enhance your overall experience by promoting mindfulness, clear-headedness, and a deeper connection with your surroundings.

Here is why sober travel and yachting, especially in Greece, is a great combination:

1. Gastronomy: It is true that in Mediterranean you will find some of the best wines in the world! But make no mistake, the local farms with seasonal ingredients will bring your gastronomic experience to a whole new level. A lot of people know about the wine of Santorini but did you know that, in Greece, you can find some of the best sour cherries during the summer months?The local take these sour cherries and make the homemade juice. Or how about some homemade mountain ice tea? People tend to replace alcohol with store bought soft drinks but that's only because they don't know what other options they have. In Condoyannis Yachts, we make sure that the provisioning is based on your preferences and keeping in mind that you are interested in a sober cruise, we make sure to provide the chef with a variety of local fresh ingredients for healthy and delicious meals and drinks.

2. Cultural and Educational Experiences: Traveling to immerse oneself in the local culture, history, and traditions without the distraction of alcohol is another aspect of sober travel. This can involve exploring museums, historical sites, and attending cultural events. For example, we always suggest to combine the cruise with the Epidaurus Arts and Theatre Festival. Another option apart from the museums, is the art. Believe it or not there so many workshops about gastronomy, marble carving, ceramics or even music.

3. Adventure and sports: Guess what? Few people have the opportunity to explore a country underwater! Imagine being in Greece. You just anchored in an inhabited island, the crew tells you the story of the place you are about to explore, they give you instructions about snorkelling, you and your friends put on your snorkelling equipments and then it's just you, the sun and the sea. Swim with turtles, try to find the home of an octopus, find seashells, discover your inner explorer and when you returns back on the yacht, the chef will have the lunch ready! And if you are more into the well-being lifestyle, we would like to recommend a yoga lesson on board, soundbath or acupuncture by excellent professionals. Another great thing about sober yachting in Greece is the weather. Depending on the sea, the weather changes. For example, in Cyclades the winds are much stronger that in Peloponnese where the weather most of the time is calmer. Depending on your preferences, we build your itinerary but for sober cruises, we mostly recommend the Saronic, the Sporades and the Peloponnese. Avoiding alcohol can contribute to better physical and mental health. You'll be more energized, focused, and able to engage in activities like snorkeling, kayaking, or exploring the local culture without any impairment.

Sober travel is appealing to individuals who may be in recovery from addiction, those who choose not to drink for personal or health reasons, or anyone looking for a different kind of travel experience focused on well-being and mindfulness. It provides an alternative to traditional travel experiences that often involve alcohol-related activities and offers a chance to connect with oneself and others in a sober and supportive environment. We won't ask about your background. Don't forget that confidentiality is part of the CYachts experience. So, let's talk and, please, mention that you are interested in a sober cruise on our cruise planner or on the contact form.
