We took a trip to the pretty little island of Ithaki with Captain Vangelis and his great crew, although this was actually our third trip with them in the last 2 years. The crew look after you from start to finish, are knowledgeable and informative about the local area and make the trip, no matter where you go with them,... More

Went on a day trip to Ithaka. Lovely relaxing day. Boat not over crowed, staff attentive but not overbearing. 2 lovely swim stops. Really enjoyable day. Would definately recommend!!

What a way to spend a day. Picked up from our hotel by private taxi to beach. Boat clean and not crowded. Sailed to Ithaka and enjoyed swim stops and harbour stops. Beautiful scenery. Spotted two dolphins in the harbour and found an ideal waterside restaurant for a spot of lunch. Crew friendly and informative. Will definitely visit again. Thanks... More

We went on the Ithaka day trip in July, we had a 7 year old and 12 year old with us. All of the staff on the boat were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Ithaka was stunning! The trip was relaxing and fun and there was even a wee special treat for the kids on the boat. Would highly recommmend.

Booked with the rep in Skala. Did not expect a 1 hour 20 min coach trip round the island picking up people. No rep on bus, we had to change coaches on way there and also back. Boat was packed so ended up sitting inside and missed the views. Kioni was beautiful,but we only had 40 min there so not... More

This trip was a highlight of the holiday for me. As we were staying out of Skala a taxi was sent to collect us at 8.30am which meant we still had time for breakfast before setting out. The boat was quite full the day we sailed - wouldn't have wanted many more on board as we were squashed quite close... More

Ok tour to Zakynthos/Zante that could have been far better. 4 stops in a trip lasting 6.5h was far too ambitious. Staff on boat are polite and knowledgeable. First stop at Shipwreck bay was worthwhile. There's a washed up wreck from 1981 located in a stunning location. The stop of approx 30 min was about right. Next stop was at... More

Went on a trip to Ithaca which was fantastic from start to finish. The crew are really nice and make sure you are ok all throughout the voyage by coming round and checking everything is alright. There are two swim stops on this cruise but you don't have to get off it is lovely just sitting and watching others and... More
