We had the most incredible day with captain Lambros. It was an absolute delight from start to finish. Not only did we enjoy the beautiful scenery, but we also had a fun group of people on board. What truly stood out was the delicious food prepared on the boat. Lambros was very accommodating and making sure that our vegan and vegetarian dietary preferences were met with scrumptious options. There were also snorkeling equipment and a sup available for use. Overall it was a memorable experience that we would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable day out on the water. Thank you Lambros for making it such a special day!

This boating trip was one of the favorite things we did in Greece! Konstantino was a great captain and his boat is very comfortable and immaculately maintained. We were really impressed that he was able of keep his boat in very tight spaces even with swells. As important as our safety was, he was also a very nice person, fun, and had interesting facts about the beautiful island of Skiathos and the surrounding islands. Don't hesitate to book this tour - our family had a great time!

It was exactly what was described, all inclusive full day sailing cruise from Skiathos to Skopelos on a lovely yacht Aeolus 2, we did stop at other islands along the way for swim stops , and although we didn’t get to go on land at any of the islands it was still a fabulous day and the food prepared for us by the Skipper Lambros was delicious and also beer , wine or soft drinks were provided . I think there were 12 or 13 people on board and everyone seemed to enjoy the experience.

Had a brilliant day. Lambros, the skipper, was friendly, professional, entertaining and provided us with fantastic food and drink. All thoroughly enjoyable.

Brilliant! Such a fun tour. The crew went above and beyond to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves, including their great puppy.
