Very good time, George is friendly, he speaks only English but does not hesitate to repeat himself to be understood. The safety on board is a must, and it also explains the history and things to see around. We had a great day on his yacht, learned to maneuver it and keep good memories in our heads as well as thanks to the photo CD he gives us at the end! We were just a little disappointed to have hardly seen any fish during snorkling or bats in the caves, which is not his responsibility but that of overfishing, but it could be indicated to improve the exit somewhat. ! Otherwise nothing to say :)

Unlucky with the weather!

George was very friendly and immediately made us feel welcome on board. Unfortunately we picked a bad day with the weather which was very windy, so the ride was quite rocky. Still, we had a nice lunch on Paros and got to go to the beach there. Would go again on a calmer day.

Among the various "1 day tour" offers along the coasts of Naxos and the small islands, surely this one that offers the friendly captain George aboard his Annabella is among the most alternative and interesting. The experience on a sailing boat allows you to have a more direct contact with the sea, reaching otherwise inaccessible places, such as small bays and sea caves. Snorkeling breaks may be a little short and a lunch break in a small village of Paros is too long. Most of the journey is done by motor. For the last stretch of sea between Paros and Naxos, George hoisted the sails, allowing several of us to work together on board maneuvers, and we sailed back up the Meltemi! Certainly the most exciting moment of the whole boat trip. To seal this nice experience, a CD with the photo reportage made with George's underwater machine. Definitely try!
