Unfortunately this was such a mediocre day. No communication about the plan for the day other than “we’ll go to three stops”. No info about life jackets or safety, minimal info about the islands or what we’re looking at. This tour really could’ve been six hours and it would’ve been plenty of time. No sails because it was too windy and honestly the catamarans looked smoother and more comfortable, no pads to sit on which after 9 hours of rough seas starts to take a toll. Save your time and look elsewhere. Alex and Bill were kind though seemed uninterested, sitting below on their phones frequently. Lunch and fruit were nice.

We enjoyed our day with Xanemo. The crew were friendly and helped us onto the yacht. We set off around 830 and sailed out looking at the coast. We had quite large waves that day and a small safety briefing would have been good to let us know what was safe to hold on to as the boat tilted a lot as we sailed out. We had 3 swimming stops of around 1 hour duration and snorkelling equipment was provided. I brought a book with me and it was very nice to sit and read my book while we were anchored. We had a snack around 10 - sandwich and cake then lunch at 1300 which catered very well for our vegetarian diet. Then fruit later around 1600. My only tip would be to bring layers as it can get cold with the wind and if you get wet from the waves.

Really poor communication with customers and arrogant attitude. Worst experience ever had. You had better choose another one.

We loved the spots where we were able to swim and the lunch they provided was delish! Very pleased with the whole experience

Our crew was wonderful and we were well looked after from beginning to end. Panos (owner), crew Vasyli (aka Bill), and Alexi. The food was very good, Morning snack was sandwiches and cake, lunch on the boat was pork souvlaki, Greek salad, tzatziki, and pita bread served with rose wine or other beverages, and fruit was offered at about 5 pm. The trip to the Small Cyclades was about 10h total, leaving at 8:30 am and docking at 6:30 pm. Our first stop was in Shinsoussa about 3h15 from our start and we had time to walk up into the town to explore before returning to the sailboat for lunch. Our second stop was Iraklia for 1h15 and here everyone just lay on the beautiful deserted beach or played in the water. No one went swimming as it was May 3 and the water was too cold. Our return took 3h30 and it was a very cold trip with the wind, even though we dressed for it. There were 9 of us onboard plus the crew.
