Full description
After meeting with your guide and boat in the morning at the marina, set sail to the Small Cyclades at 8:30 AM. Venture towards a top-secret location, so as not to end up with other boats around you while you swim. Your exact destination will be selected during your sail to the south coast of Naxos, and will be determined by weather conditions. Either way, you can expect secluded beaches, turquoise shallow water, and a lot of fun. Make three stops during the day for snorkeling and exploring the area, with some time set side to eat as well. Each spot will boast a particular feature, whether it's the color of the water, its tranquility, or its abundant sea life. Be prepared to swim, sail, relax, and lose track of time on your beautiful day at sea. Later in the early evening, you can expect to return back to Naxos' main port at around 6:00 PM - 6:30PM.

Great experience! Departure at 8.30 am from the meeting point (easily accessible) heading south. First stop at Church Agios Sozon with a swim in crystal clear waters! After a short snack we headed back to the Small Cyclades with a stop and lunch break in Schoinoussa. Last stop on the west coast of Naxos for a last dip and a snack before returning. Water, beer, wine and food very welcome! The skippers Alex and Alexandra very clear and super helpful. Highly recommended!

A wonderdul day! Though we were 12 people onboard because of some hickup with one of the website but it was only noticable in the beging, the rest of the day you couldn'teven tell. One stop was not really private aince there were 3 other boata there but really good snorkeling so it didn't really matter. The last 2 stops were perfect! Good lunch and really nice crew! Just wished we could have done some sailing since it was a sailboat...

Guide to the Top!! (Alex). Beautiful sailboat, a long trip to reach the islands to end up being a little disappointed by the landscape. (Virtually no fish to observe) on the other hand we saw dolphins! Wonderful. Simple and effective meal, unlimited drinks. Price a bit high, but we had a great day despite everything!!
