Al the staff working on the Vangeli's Boat Cruise were super informative and friendly . We cruised around the Kefalonian coast line , which were absolutely picturesque. The turquoise sea water as clear as a crystal and beautiful white sands. We stopped off for a bathe in the warm sea water heated by the hot Greek summer sun. The boat... More

We went on the cruise to Ithaca - a superb day out! We were staying in Poros so it was great that we were picked up in Poros harbour. Crew were lovely, facilities good, swim stops were well organised and suitable for different levels of ability. Excellent guide. Good value day out.

We took 2 cruises with Captain Vagelis while visiting Kefalonia and both were fantastic. Our trip to Zakynthos included Shipwreck beach, the blue caves, and several stops for swimming. The second trip was a cruise from skala to Fiscardo, along the western side of the island. We made stops at mini Myrtos Beach, where we swam and enjoyed the beautiful... More

Fantastic day trip to Fiskardo from Skala, with 2 swim stops on the way and a visit to Melassani Lakes. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. The captain and the crew were fantastic, nothing too much trouble. The day was well worth the 40€ each. The boat had a slide from the top deck into the sea which i used and others... More

If fancy you a change from sitting by the pool then I would suggest a trip with Captain Vangeli and see a little bit more of the other islands. We went on the Zante trip and our friends went on both the Ithaca and Zante trips. They felt the Ithaca trip was better, but purely because they preferred the places... More

Just spent a lovely day sailing from Skala to Ithaka with this company. Very well organised, very friendly staff full of information. Just enough time in both towns to get a feel for the place and each some lunch Two swim stops although sadly the rain arrived so we couldn't make use of the second stop. Would certainly go on...

We went on two trips on the Mythos, from Skala beach, so no coach transfers needed, with returners discount second time, to Ithaca- a lovely trip and stopping points for swim or explore, visiting Vathi and Kioni, the prettiest places around; the second trip to Zante, to Shipwreck beach, the blue caves, and a 2 hour stop at Alykanas, a...

First time on the island, wanted to see it all! So my friend and I booked 2 boat trips, 1st to Zante where just as we got to first swim stop the heavens opened and the sea was pretty violent so the decision was taken by the captain not to stop, good decision. Stopped for lunch at Zante, swim stop... More
