The summer vacation with our sailing boats is for most of our customers the best Greek island sailing tour they could have. Whether you are looking for picturesque villages with white houses, crystal clear sea, sunbathing, calm or rough itineraries or you are just a fan of good traditional food, you can find it all by choosing one of our boats. Let’s see what some of our customers have said.
Trip of a Lifetime!
When my husband first suggested we add a 4-day sailing trip of the lower Cyclades to our 30th wedding anniversary trip to Greece, I was a little apprehensive. But he persevered and I’m so glad he did! Apostolos was great to work with in our planning and answering all of my extensive questions prior to our trip, and even sending me pictures of the boat interior! Our skipper was Dionysis and he made our trip so memorable. Our boat was Rafaella – plenty of room. Since it was just the two of us, we were able to use the 2nd bedroom for our luggage. The first and last days were our longest sails. I started to get sea sick the first day and Dionysis had me stand up and look straight ahead. It worked! I learned what I needed to do and wasn’t sick during any other sails. He would suggest great restaurants on the islands we stayed at each night. We chose to have Dionysis eat with us each evening: we enjoyed his company and he was great at suggesting meals for us to try. All of the restaurants served delicious food, but I must say, on the island of Iraklia we ate at a very small outdoor restaurant named Akathi – amazing! I had Pastitsio – the most wonderful flavors! Cats were our friends this evening, as in a lot of Greece! Koufonisia was the most beautiful island we visited during our sail. We took a hike around part of the island and saw beautiful coves and topped off by a breathtaking beach and bay! There was a nice shopping area on Koufonisia as well. On our last full day, Dionysis took us to an inlet off of Naxos where we snorkeled (not a lot of fish to see in the Aegean :( and swam into a water cave). It was May so the water was chilly, but we got used to the temperature quickly. The best part was that Dionysis took video of us snorkeling and lots of pictures. In May it could be chilly while sailing, so make sure to bring jackets. A memorable trip that we will remember forever!!
Outstanding in every way. professional and thoughtful planning and an exceptionally knowledgeable and kind captain.
The charter was absolutely excellent. Throughout, communication with me was perfect with all the information we needed to plan ahead; we when wanted to make some changes, requests were accommodated without any hesitation.
The boat was excellent – in fantastic condition and exceptionally clean. By having a permanent skipper on board, it was very clear that this charter was a step ahead of bareboat vessels.
Captain Nikos was exceptional. He is quite one of the most professional and proud men I have ever met. He is clearly exceptionally knowledgeable about the area and hugely experienced as a captain. He was able to quickly put me and my young family at ease, and despite the unlucky windy conditions we experienced, he was able to find quiet and peaceful places for us to rest during the day. In the evenings, Nikos found out local restaurants and even shared fish with us on board the yacht one night. It was a wonderful experience, personalized for us and a week to remember forever.
