My husband, I and our two young children had an amazing day at sea with Captain George and his assistant Marcos on the Annabella. There were a total of 8 including us for the Rina Caves and islands tour and Captain George was informative and entertaining. The boat was comfortable with more than enough space for us. We had an excellent day out swimming in the beautiful waters and exploring Rina Caves. Our 6 year Old had quite the moment when she when diving in the caves and jumped off a little cliff. We had lunch on the tiny island of Schoinousa, where we went for a warm swim. The sea was fairly choppy but Captain George did his best to make everyone as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend.

What an incredible experience and a proper sailing excursion. Be prepared to help on the boat and know that the captain takes your safety very seriously - this is NOT a party catamaran! That said, it’s a blast and a total must do wonderful way to experience the sea. You’ll stop at a couple spots to snorkel and then get a solid couple hours in a small seaside village on Paros where you can eat, shop or continue to swim. Pack a windbreaker if you can and if motion makes you sick, you might want to re-think a small sailboat.

We had a really Nice day on annabella with George as our captain. We Went swimming in some really Nice places and had a very good lunch in a small town in Paros. It was great communicating with George prior to the trip, since the day we had originally booked was moved to the next because of the weather. On the boat we Got some Homemade snacks and cold sodas and we all tried Standing at the stearing wheel for some time. By the end of the day we Got some great Photos taken by George and the co-captain. The pictures was from the day and we Got offered some homemade raki on Annabella. Overall a really amazing day. Would really recommend!

Captain Georges provides an impeccably curated voyage to the Minor Cyclades. The Beneteau Annabella is a wonderful vessel. Many hands-on sailing opportunities afforded to all guests and the Captain is at once humorous, engaging and helpful. I doubt there is a better day sailing experience to be had on Naxos.

Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Booked the sailing trip the night before and definitely was not disappointed. The weather was perfect and capt. George was very engaging and friendly, even providing us all with homemade goodies from his wife. We were able to stop at three separate swimming locations for a lengthy time with the provided scuba gear, we couldn’t believe how clear the waters were. Definitely recommend. Nice to be shown around by a local rather than a tourist company. We even managed to see a glimpse of a dolphin!!

Everything Bellarude said already. So, sure. We sailed briefly,(motored about the rest of the time), got to snorkel some, which was fun.
BUT…George was rude. He seemed angry, threw orders at us (I have no problem with that) but yelled at us if we didn’t understand him. He has a very thick accent and was difficult to understand. We tried hard, but he just seemed angry much of the time. He did not care or ask what the group wanted-we went where he wanted to go. None of our group wanted to go to Paros , but he made it clear-that was the plan. There were safety issues-he was the only sailor in the group. And when we snorkeled, he had no way to know if we were ok. We had an awesome group, who looked out for each other. I give my group 5 stars.

Thank you Cpt. George for a very cool and exciting sailing trip around Naxos and Paros. It’s one of the highlights of our trip to Greece and a great way to truly capture the beauty of the Greek islands and majesty of the Aegean Sea.
The stops for swimming were wonderfully beautiful and the rock beach behind the tiny church on Paros was a great place to swim and catch a nap before sailing back. George also provides some sailing instructions if the winds are right and can hoist the sails - actual sailing vs motoring back to home! Oh and he lets guests steer the boat too - I was sailing the boat!!! While we didn’t see any dolphins or sea turtles, it was still an amazing experience.
When you book the trip, make sure you read the website in detail and fill out all the forms required. There are new Gov’t requirements and rules due to COVID and heavy fines can be imposed on both guests and service providers for any violations so listen to George’s instructions.
FYI - when you dock in Paros, behind some public bathrooms are fresh water showers that you can use to wash the salt off before grabbing some lunch.
Happy sailing folks!!!!

The tour with annabella yatch was really good. Information was provided by captain george all the time. They offered us soft drinks, snacks, torches for the cave, snorkeling equipment, noodles for swimming and they were taking photos of us all day. Captain George tought us how to steer the boat and to some of us, how to open the sails. We stopped at rena's cave to swim and dive but we did some more stops for informations and to admire the view. We saw dolphins two times and it was an amazing experience because we hadn't seen ever in our lives. As captain George had already told us the trip to koufonisia would take a lot of hours, thus we wouldn't have much time there. But the other clients and us decided to go anyways. After all koufonisia was great too. In the way back we stopped at mikri vigla for a swim and some diving. Even if there was no wind for sailing we opened the sails for a bit just to feel the experience. It was an amazing day! Special thanks to Captain george and his assistant!

This sailing tour was the highlight of our trip!! We started the day pretty early and didn’t have enough time to have breakfast, however they offered an assortment of homemade small breakfast pastries and drinks which was amazing. The actual swimming and sailing was so fun, and George was a great/ accommodating host and Captain. The cave swim was insane, it’s all you could ask for. After Ending the day with a visit to a nearby island to have a delicious lunch, we made our way back to be met by dolphins alongside the boat! 1000% recommend, we had grins the whole day! Thank you George!

Captain George was very welcoming, a very nice greek. We went to a cave with a Cliff jump and to a lagoon, and other places of great beauty all only accessible by boat. The boat was very comfortable, we had a lot of things at our disposal(drinks, some food, diving masks). Captain George has many stories to Tell about Naxos and sailing. My parents enjoyed it, my friends also, everyone is into it! Go Captain George !
