This full day sailing excursion (9am - 4pm) was exceptional in every way. Captains (and owners) Antonio and Kostas (both experienced seamen, charismatic and handsome hosts - a father and son team) took us sailing around the small island of Antiparos. It was a typically windy day so we were under sail for only part of the trip. The Captain did not let the wind detract from our outing. He brought us to many sheltered coves and swimming areas where we were well protected from the wind.
The boat is a perfect size. We were a
Family of 5 adults who joined another couple. We had enjoyed another, slightly larger catamaran tour that was also fun but for us the intimacy and scale of the Glaraki is far preferable. The smaller sized vessel still lived large with a spacious and clean galley and wc. We were fed a spectacular lunch with fresh fish grilled on the boat (other options, chicken and vegetarian available) along with appetizers from their own garden (tomatoes and cheese on bread, salads etc). We were offered all wines /beer and soft drinks. There was plenty of fresh water and ice if we wanted it. Platters of fresh fruit finished off our meal.
Our hosts were gracious and attentive without being intrusive. We learned a lot about the islands, the animal life and cultural history of the Cyclades and Greece in general.
The Captain was also very responsive to our emails and we communicated easily to schedule the tour.
We recommend this marvelous trip enthusiastically and without reservation. We felt very fortunate to have found the Glaraki and, especially, her owners. Thank you for your gracious and capable hospitality .

Our day on the Glaraki sailboat was the highlight of our one month trip to Greece! We we’re with our son, daughter- in - law and our adventurous 6 year old granddaughter. It was a windy but perfect day off the coast of Antiparos. We felt our wonderful crew was fabulous, they turned into much more than just a crew to us.. they became our friends! The Glaraki was a beautiful sailboat the was one of the most comfortable boats we have ever chartered. Lunch was absolutely fabulous, whole fish, chicken kabob, gorgeous salad and wonderful fruit for dessert. I would recommend this trip to anyone that doesn’t just want to be another number on a crowded boat.
Greek hospitality at its finest!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Glaraki sailing cruise we went on yesterday! Antonio and Kostas were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time!

It was really special being able to visit such unique places with gorgeous colored water and scenery.

We were really impressed with the delicious lunch they served us and how generous they were serving us beer, wine, ouzo, etc.

I realize this is a strange observation, but I have to say the bathroom on the boat was by far the best bathroom I have ever seen/used on a sailing boat :-)

I highly recommend you take a Glaraki sailing cruise while visiting the island of Paros!

Thank you for an extremely memorable day, Antonio and Kostas!

Excellent overall experience sailing with Antonio and Kostas. Their offering is a great package of on board hospitality and local cruising around the area of Paros Antiparos and Despokito islands. Cruise includes stops for swimming and BBQ. These multi talented captains run a great cruise on a 39 ft monohull sloop with a new paint job new engine and new canvas. Having captained cruises like this in Boston we have a high appreciation for how much they do and how well they do it. The food was excellent and much of it was personally produced by Antonio. They will customize the menu to your taste. We highly recommend sailing with Glaraki. In addition to the day cruise we also did their sunset cruise and both were excellent.

Cant recommend this enough.
We joined on a very windy day, when almost everyone cancelled, but Kostas and his father now exactly what they are doing and where to go to avoid strong winds and currents. They had to adjust a bit their stopping spots, but all the stops we made (around four) were great, with crystal clear blue waters to snorkel, swim or just chill on the boat. Both are very friendly, and what to say, excellent cooks! We had the most amazing grilled fish (honestly, better than most restaurants) and had a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit during the day. If you would like to have some drinks on board, they are included in the price and they have quite the selection. The size of the boat and the group makes it possible to have a very fun day out and make new friends if you want to, or stay a bit more private if thats more to your liking.
Some soft music in the background made this day if possible even more pleasant!
Thank you!

I had an amazing experience with Glaraki cruise. Our hosts Kostas & Antonis were excellent in making sure everyone will have a safe and joyful trip around Antiparos and Despotiko island. Great selection of beaches to swim, visiting the Apollo monument, having an amazing lunch and coming back for extra time of relaxation on sailboat's deck. I highly recommend this experience for everyone (solo, couples, friends, families) visiting Paros or Antiparos islands.

Antonio and Kostas, Father and Son, were wonderful hosts. They took great care of us on our day trip. They have great knowledge of the coast and of the sea. The swimming spots they picked for us showcased some of the finest waters in all of Greece. Drinks were plentiful. Food was unbelievable—you will never find grilled fish cooked the way Antonio prepared it for us. The boat is perfect for a family of 4. Tip: bring your own towels.

An amazing experience, extremely good food and a great host who made us feel like home. The day was definitely the highlight of our trip and we would recommend to anyone who loves the sea and wants to see breathtaking beaches without the burden of using a car or bus (which still dont take you to the beaches we went to). We ate freshly caught fish that was grilled on the spot for us and amazing traditional snacks like fresh fruit. Excellent value for money!

We loved our experience. It was delightful and so fun. The boat was charming. Kosta and his dad were a fantastic crew. The coves we went to were stunning and places we would have never discovered on our own. The lagoon was also so gorgeous and not accessible by land which made it even more special! The service was top notch and food was delicious and lovingly prepared on board was made from the freshest ingredients. Many nice touches including vegetables for the simple Greek salad straight out of the captains garden in Antiparos. We highly recommend them and their day trip.
It will be an amazing day.

Πολύ ωραία εμπειρία, απίστευτα μέρη και τοποθεσίες καθώς Πολύ καλό σέρβις και προσωπικό.
Πολύ φιλόξενα άτομα και βοηθητικά. Είναι απαραίτητο για όποιον θέλει να προσεγγίσει μέρη που αλλιώς δεν είναι εφικτό.

Very nice experience, amazing places and awesome service within the boat.
Very friendly crew and helpful. It is a big must it you want to visit places and beaches that you can not do with the car.
A big must if you visit the island
