We have had a wonderful day today with Nautilos Cruises to Chrissi Island. Michalis and Ioanna are very kind people who did all their best to make our trip worthwile. Booking this semi private cruise cost you 65 euro per person, which is a lot more than if you would buy a cheap ticket with a big boat, but it's worth every last euro! Booking with Nautilos gives you the opportunity to enjoy the island with a small group if people. We were with 17 in total on the boat today. They split the group in two, so the first group started on the island at a moment that all the massive tourist boats have not yet arrived. Our group stayed on the boat as we cruised for a secluded bay and had a wonderful and quiet time with only 10 people swimming, snorkling, sunbathing on the boat and enjoying a wonderful homemade Greek lunch. This took 3 hours in total, so no rush whatsoever. Then it was time to change, so the boat headed back to the place where we could go to Golden Beach and the other group would go to the bay. Entering the island at 14h meant that it was a lot more crowded at that time, but as Michalis already told us: most of the tourists were leaving for the big boats starting from 15h, so we had the last hour and a half or so on a very quiet Golden Beach. Very nice day and we would really recommend this one if you would like to enjoy both the island in a quiet way and having the opportunity to go snorkling and having a great three course lunch! Thanks again to Michalis and Ioannis! Jeffrey & Sharon

It was a perfect day for a group of 13 on a fabolous boat with an awesome service! Everything was organized very well. We arrived on the Chrissi Island in the morning - when there was only a few people. This place is magical. Afterwards we sailed around it and captain stopped for a swim and snorkeling session. Then the crew blew our minds with super delicious greek lunch and tasty desert with great greek coffee. We spent another hour swimming in the sea and came back to the shore.
