The yacht charters in the Ionion are either in the North (predominantly out of Gouvia Marina, Corfu/Korfu), or in the south Ionian which offers more islands and better temperatures most months. These areas can be connected in one itinerary but one requires 2 weeks of more, but highly recommended since a visit to for instance Paxoi (Paxos) can be included.
The northern Ionian is bordered by Albania, which used to be an area to avoid at all costs. Even entering Albanian waters by accident could mean a lot of trouble. Nowadays, the situation is less tense but crossing is still prohibited with nearly all (if not all) charter yachts and should only be attempted when a visit has been planned beforehand and on private yachts or catamarans. I a number of years Albania will promise to be a new lovely cruising area.
