Great trip, lovely way to see the coast. Fiskardo was beautiful and we had time to shop and have a drink there. The lake was gorgeous but long queues, just enough time to get lunch on that stop a little longer would have been better. The swim stops were fun but only for confident swimmers really. All in all an... More

This was a great way to see the island and reasonably priced too. The cruise to Ithaka we found was more enjoyable than Zante. We felt we had a little more freedom and more chances to explore than on the Zante cruise. Nonetheless, the cruise to Zante comprised beautiful scenery. We found the crew safety-conscious and friendly. They were happy... More

We really enjoyed the trip. It was well organised and the crew were very professional as well as friendly. We had 2 swim breaks on gorgeous beaches and 2 shopping/food stops. The stop in Vathy was the best. We had food on the sea front in the small, family run restaurant selling mostly fresh fish-can't remember the name (shame-the tables... More

We have been to Skala on holiday for the last six years and have visited much of the island by boat or car. We have been to Fiskardo, Zante and Ithaka on Captain Vangeli's cruises and have really enjoyed them all although for us Ithaka was our favourite. They have a professional approach to safety and the itinery is punctual... More

We took the Kefalonia cost cruise and totally enjoyed it.The trip from skala to fiskardo was quite long but the way back and the stops were very pleasant. Fiscardo is a lovely little village and we got enough time to see it and get some breakfast. Lake Melissani was like a place taken out of a fairytale and both the... More

My frita and I went to enquire about going on one of Captain vangellis trips. We approached an English lady who was advertising them opposite skala beach. She was very vague and not forthcoming with information. When I enquired about times and prices she handed me a leaflet and said all the information I needed was in there. I didn't... More

We (family of 6) went on the cruise to Zante - it was amazing. Visiting Navagio beach has always been on my bucket list, so being able to go there was incredible. The blue caves were beautiful and the swim stop there was brilliant fun. The stop in the town in Zante was lovely and it was great to see... More
