Never thought I would be sliding off a boat into a deserted cove but this boat trip to Ithica makes you feel young. We preferred to sit inside and loved the journey across and around Ithica but be aware that there is only room for 40 on the top deck although the cruise can take 140. We had two beach... More

We went on the Ithaca cruise from skala. It was a great way to Explore another island while we were there. the staff were friendly and the boat was comfortable and spacious enough for all the guests on board. We had 2 swim stops, one on the way to Ithaca and one on the way back. Our first stop on... More

We recently spent the day with captain vangelis cruises, we visited Ithaca, it stopped off four times over all, two were in little Greece towns where you had an hour and a half to either have coffee or lunch or just take in the locals, the other two were mid sea were you could jump in off the boat and...

After reading the numerous 4/5 star reviews we were expecting the Ritz, sadly we got a Travelodge by the A46! I'm not by any means saying it was a bad cruise, just don't get your expectations up!! The itinerary could be better, the first two hours are spent travelling to Fiskardo, the length of time there is spot on for... More

Highly recommend the day cruise to Zante. Lovely friendly staff on board, smooth comfortable boat. So packed with things to see and do. The beautiful shipwreck beach, blue caves and lovely lunch stop in Alykes plus 3 swim stops. Excellent value for money , great day out.

We recently returned from Skala. During our holiday we used Captain Vangeli's special boat cruises. One to Fiskarda & the other to Ithaca. Boat were excellent trips. The crew were so helpful. Chris gives a very good commentary about the areas that they are taking you to. I would highly recommend that if you are thinking of taking any boat... More

We opted for the Zante cruise in the first week of June, unfortunately the weather was pretty bad for the first couple of hours, extremely windy and rainy. The trip to the shipwreck lasted about 2 minutes as it was just too cold and windy! The blue caves were not blue either because of the lack of sun. The town... More
