We joined Kostas and his wife, Katarina, on their cute sailing boat. We were a small group and quickly felt very comfortable even in the windy open sea. Their hospitality as well as kindness and knowledge for the sea made it a very interesting trip and relaxing trip. They got you covered: little snack at 10, lunch, snack after 16 again… all that, while visiting probably some of the most beautiful bays you can find around the Cyclades. An amazing experience for which we highly want to thank Kostas and Katarina. We strongly recommend to take part in this breathtaking one of a kind experience!

An amazing experience. Really glad I did it. Went to some beautiful locations. Swam out to the beaches and did some snorkelling including seeing the old war plane. Was a bit cold and windy towards the end and probably could have done without the final beach in Naxos as wasn’t secluded like the others but all in all a great experience.

Amazing sailing trip! We ended up being the only passengers on the boat (end of season) which made the trip private and very special. Kostas (the captain) was very knowledgeable, passionate about sailing and took a great care of us. Lunch was delicious and we had a wonderful day! Highly recommend!

It was a lovely day! You are asked to bring only a hat and sunglasses. It’s quite windy during the boat ride, so you must have a secure hat or none at all. It’s helpful to have sunscreen and a towel as well.

Everything was great! I had a peaceful and enjoyable time!
