We did the sunset cruise around Naxos. 10/10 would recommend. The catamaran was amazing, the views were stunning, and the staff were brilliant- friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable.
We had a large age range in our group, and everybody had the most enjoyable and memorable experience!

I highly recommend spending a day or more on the water in Naxos on the Apollon. We were in Naxos in June and the catamaran was essentially brand new. Our hotel, Faros, booked a lovely sunset cruise for the 5 of us. Two adults and three teens. It was a rare cloudy evening, but we still had a marvelous time and only the 5 of us were on the catamaran! The crew were wonderful and prepared delicious fresh food for us.
We promptly booked a second all day cruise for several days later which was simply fabulous!
We met in the morning at the catamaran. We sailed to numerous sites, including a cave and nearby smaller islands. There were many opportunities to swim in the gorgeous Aegean sea. It is definitely a must to see the island from the water. We had more delicious food through out the day and there were approximately 15 people on the boat, besides the crew members. My teens had a great time jumping off the bow into the crystal clear sea.
It was truly a perfect day and we absolutely will sail with Apollon again when we go back to Naxos.

We arrived in Naxos on a very windy day and had a private cruise scheduled for the next day. Our airbnb host told us that it would be vey windy for the next two days, but calmer later in the week. I called the company and asked if we could move our full day private cruise to any day later during the week. They said: It was going to be less windy tomorrow, that it was too late to postpone, and that they would check and call back later. They never did.
We went out the next day. The wind was between 20-25 knots with big waves. Due to safety concerns, the skipper took us only to beaches very close to the port. All the beaches were public, crowded and easily reachable by car. Because of the high winds we were almost always under power without sails. The last hour coming back to port, the boat was against the wind and the waves. It was very uncomfortable. He told us that on average, 25 days of the month of August are this windy.
I understand they have a business to run and it is a relatively short season but I believe they should have offered an alternate date if available or, offer a refund for our deposit (50% of the cost of the full day cruise). I understand they cannot control the weather. I did call the owner prior to posting this review and he offered us a "free" sunset cruise next summer!?!? Although we are a family that loves to sail, we will think twice before booking a sailing cruise in Naxos again and certainly before paying such a large deposit.

We had specifically asked if we would do some sailing. We were assured this would be a sailing experience, but unfortunately like most other Catamaran "sailing day-trips" in the Mediterranean, for some unknown reason, they never seem willing to actually put up the sails and SAIL. We had partial sail up for a small percentage of the time, but the noisy engine was always on, we were motor-sailing, not sailing.

I have been a sailor all my life and also a charter captain myself. I know that it would have been perfectly safe to sail without the motor, at least for some or most of the down-wind leg of our journey. Maybe they like to use the engines to cover a greater distance, but if they are not willing to actually SAIL, they should not sell it as a SAILING experience.

We felt there could have been a little more communication between the skipper and the guests and we were not happy with the muscles in tomato sauce and rice for lunch, it is not everybody's cup of tea! The wine and beer were ok and the melons were lovely.

We were a little disappointed they did not go to Koufonisi as mentioned, and we wonder if they ever do!

It was very rough going back (into the wind, big waves and swell) with strong Meltemi wind blowing, if you think you might be subject to seasickness, you should take medication one hour before you set sail, in view of the local weather, I would suggest their sales pitch should give this advice or even offer the inexpensive pills for free, as soon as the guests arrive on board (as I used to do in the UK with my own guests).

My daughter and I spent the day on the Apollon. We saw some beautiful scenery and stopped to swim off the boat 3 or 4 times. Both the captain and 1st mate made sure everyone was taken care of throughout the day. The food was great as well. I would highly recommend this adventure. The boat is clean and new with lots of open space.

My family and I, along with a group of other people had the most incredible full day at sea. The captain and chef onboard were both friendly, interactive, funny and informative and made a huge effort for everyone to feel comfortable and welcomed. There was plenty of space for everyone and more to lie down or sit, as well as an inside area and cabins where you could sit if you had enough sun. It was so nice to meet everyone and spend the whole day chatting and getting to know everyone. The food was incredible, decorative and delicious and there were snacks and drinks including beer and wine available all day. They also provided us with pool noodles, snorkels and goggles. Best experience we could have asked for, and the most amazing beaches and waters despite the burns we all got, it was all worth it. Thanks to the captains for the most incredible experience. 10/10 would definitely recommend.

Loved the day on the cat. The crew were fantastic. Very professional. So helpful. My wife and l had a charter business in Australia with a catamarn and l was impreseed how these guys ran the show. Nothing to much trouble. The Lagoon 40 was the perfect cat for the job and very clean. Had a great day and food was excellent. Saw a lot of the islands and bays. Would recommend this to anyone. Water was a bit fresh though. Thanks guys. Pete n Di Australia.

Fantastic day tour as a couple. The boat has plenty of room to move around and the two man crew were very friendly. We were in Naxos in mid-May when the tourist volume is still pretty low, so there were only 6 people on our tour which was great (typically there is up to 12 people). There are a few different routes the boat could take and they laid out a couple different options we could choose from. We along the Paros coastline and stopped at the golden beaches, blue lagoon - amazing water colour - and and little town where we had a n hour to walk around. We also were very lucky to spot a group of dolphins swinging beside our boat for a few minutes. It was amazing...but I don’t think this is a regular occurrence. The crew also made us an awesome spread of food throughout the trip. Coffee and cookies to start, snacks, delicious Greek lunch and then a fruit tray in the afternoon. Snorkelling gear is available on board, but there is isn’t much fish to see on the tour. My only criticism is that they didn’t actually raise the sails at any point on the tour. Just used the motor the whole time. Not sure if it was because the wind was so low or because it’s just easier for them to go no-sail. Regardless, I would certainly recommend this tour for your day in Naxos. Left at 8:30am and we’re back at the port by 5:30pm.

Spent the day on this wonderful Catamaran and it will be something I remember forever. We cruised for a while then stopped and had the opportunity to swim in a couple of beautiful coves along the way to Koufonisia. We were able to hop off the boat and spend 2 beautiful hours there another gorgeous bay and beautiful authentic Greek restaurants. Basic and absolutely beautiful. Doing the same on the return trip to Naxos Harbour stopping off and swimming in the most beautiful spots. I was so sad that it came to an end. The crew were fantastic and I highly recommend the cruise. The most amazing way to spend a day
