Testimonial – Sailing vacations for families

July 2014

We came to the Greek islands as first time visitors and first time sailors and had no idea what to expect.

With a young family , we were nervous but as soon as we met captain Antonis our fears were allayed and the best holiday we have ever had began.

We loved the sailing trip, the secluded spots we were taken to the swim and snorkel, the unique, traditional towns on the islands and the raw exposure to the Greek island culture.

Thank you Antonis for understanding our needs and creating an unforgettable experience for our whole family.
