Full description
Make your way to Piso Livadi Port and board a sailing boat for your memorable full-day cruise. The yacht leaves Paros every morning and takes you sailing for an entire day around the Small Cyclades Islands.   Depending on the weather conditions, the skipper will sail towards the island of Iraklia, where you will stop in a secluded cove to snorkel around a World War II plane wreck. The island of Schinoussa or Koufonisia is the next stop. After a swim in the turquoise colored waters, you’ll be served a lunch prepared by the crew.   Later in the afternoon, take a short swim off the coast of Naxos Island. If the winds are strong the skipper will set sail westward, towards the sheltered coasts of Antiparos and Despotiko. These islands are hidden gems just waiting to be explored. You will return to Paros at approximately 7:00-7:30 PM, depending on the weather.

Yannis and Mariza were AMAZING hosts on the Maestre! It was a beautiful day spent in and on the water. It was ideal for us. We wanted a small group and our group on the boat was a wonderful group of people. So glad we did this! Thank you Yannis and Mariza

We had a two person crew, the captain of the boat and his assistance who was also our cook. This sailing trip was a blast. Both of the crew members knew how to operate the boat well. They engaged well with all of us on the boat. Fed us super well with a big lunch and many snacks which included fruit, crackers, and various different dips. The locations we visited were simply beautiful. We lucked out with a wonderful day and saw lots of dolphins on our morning ride. The water was perfect temperate and beautiful where we docked for swimming. Highly recommend this tour. The locations we went were amazing, the boat experience itself is worth it, and the food was phenomenal. If you have a chance, definitely do this tour.

We enjoyed the 10h boat trip, however there were definitely things to be improved like the food and beverage served. We only got a pasta dish with tomate sauce, some fruit and a salad. All was served in the morning and no snacks or drinks were almost left in the afternoon. In terms of beverage, there were just a couple of cokes, beers,...in our opinion, poor for the price we paid. However, we visited three beautiful spots and the crew was nice. The schedules were also met accordingly.
