It’s not every day I can write about having an epic yacht charter in Mykonos. I usually just dream about spending summers drinking wine on a yacht, so I’m taking full advantage here because it happened! Let’s be real, if you’re going to Mykonos, you envision blue and white vibes, partying, eating fresh Mediterranean food, and boating in the Adriatic.
Mykonos Boat Trips
My cousin Sophia and I spent a week in Mykonos and on one of the days we planned the most epic yacht experience. We booked an 80ft yacht called “Zeus” through Mykonos Boat Trips, and our captain Kostas is the nicest guy and an absolute dream. You may recognize the boat in paparazzi pictures– Elon Musk rented the same boat during one of his recent vacations. So yeah…it was expensive (not for the average Joe), you’ll probably need a lot of friends to split the cost with, but WHAT A DAY.
We started the day on a gorgeous golden boat relaxing, sunbathing, and drinking rosé while Kostas and his crew showed us around the island. He then took us to this spot to go swimming in the most beautiful aqua water. It felt like we had the whole Adriatic Sea to ourselves.
After working up an appetite, we had some snacks prepared for us as we made our way to lunch.
Lunch at Spilia
We had a lunch reservation at Spilia, which was one of my absolute favorite dining experiences in Mykonos. I have to say, it’s pretty epic to roll up to a restaurant in an 80ft yacht.
Sophia and I had fun cocktails, fresh fish, vegetables, and lobster pasta. An absolute dream. Spilia also turns into party-lunch vibes around 3 pm. It was a scene in the best possible way.
Sunset on the Sea
After a late lunch, we got back on the yacht and bopped around until the sun started setting. It was one of the most amazing days. It felt so good to be disconnected from work, technology, and just soak in the beauty. I’ll never ever forget this day.
