We booked a sailboat trip with Polco for 7 people to go around the island of Milos and were able to visit Polyaigos, Geraka and Kleftiko. The experience was simply amazing and worth every penny. The beaches we visited were all very unique and beautiful and not to be missed! Captains Stavros (a.k.a. Grizzly) and Alex (a.k.a Rantanplan) were fantastic, excellent hosts and made our trip even better. We planned out the day as we liked and Stavro made a unique trip for us allowing us to see all the spots we wanted, and also taking us through the caves of Kleftiko and explaining all the history around it. Both captains were extremely friendly and we felt like we were already buddies instantly. Alex was incredibly attentive, making sure all of us had drinks, food or anything we liked and was there to help in every way. We all felt extremely comfortable and safe throughout the whole day. I highly recommend a sail cruise around Milos with Polco and even more so with Grizzly and Alex. All in all a unique and fantastic day!

Polco sailing cruises is the best team to pick for your day trip around milos.

if you really want your experience to be truly amazing just ask to sail with Paul and Eric as your crew. They are the best. They made our experience so much better. We had such a great time with them. The where fun, they made us feel comfortable around the boat, they told us amazing stories and they picked the best private spots wherever we stopped (away from all the other boats). The trip was relaxed, we had time to take pictures on all the spot and also to relax and enjoy the amazing scenery. If I had to take this trip again I would only do it with the same crew. Thank you guys.

Wow! Blown away by our experience! The weather was bad for the day we scheduled (wed) was able to communicate through app and rescheduled for Thursday! The staff was so fun and welcoming. We had soo much food and wine and beer you can drink. The snorkeling was fun. We were able to dive and jump off the boat and lots of time to do what we wanted to do. I’d recommend packing light bc they have almost everything you need. Just being a towel- sweatshirt (can get windy) sunscreen and a great attitude. I wish some of the other guest didn’t bring soo much crap bc was hard to live around with it. Must book we absolutely would do again! And please tip them!!!!!

Seriously don’t even waste time going to beaches by bus/car/scooter, as none of those are as amazing as the blue and pristine waters you will go to with the boat tour. A million times more spectacular than easily accessible beaches. We did the catamaran tour that took us to Poliegos, Geraka, Kleftiko, and Sikia. Amazing spots with super blue or crystal water. Crew was really nice, informative, and pleasant. They served us snacks, lunch, an afternoon dessert, and plenty of drinks (alcoholic as well!). Original price was ~$160 but we were given a discount code for COVID and got 15% off which was really nice. Your was from 9:15-6:30.

We highly recommend Polco sailing! Stavros and Hercules (Eric) were fantastic and friendly. They knew what they were doing and handled the boat very well! They also gave us a lot of information about the island and the spots we visited. We were celebrating a 30th birthday and they accommodated us and played good music and the vibe was good!

Thank you Stavros and Eric for making our trip a memorable one!

Best day of our vacation - a great tour to amazing places. The crew (the two Stavro) were very professional and attentive while they were also enjoying the day with us. Also, the Covid measures were followed according to the protocols. Couldn't wish for anything more - you get what you pay for and even more

This was the absolute highlight of our trip. Captain Nicholas, Paul, and Yannis took us out for a full day of exploring the inaccessible west coast of
Milos. We stopped at several isolated and beautiful beaches until we arrived at Kleftiko. There we explored the caves that housed pirates over a century ago. My girlfriend and I felt as if we were living an episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” In fact that is the point, Polco cruises are meant to make you feel as if you are going out on a friend’s yacht for a day of adventure. There are not enough superlatives to describe how wonderful the trip was. The crystal blue waters of the Aegean Sea were refreshing to swim in. The crew took us out to explore the many different caves present in Kleftiko. A location that would put the Blue Grotto to shame. The lunch provided could have been from a Michelin restaurant but in fact was prepared by a local chef on the Island. If you only have time for one trip on Milos, this must be the one. If you are considering a trip to the Greek Islands, make Milos a priority destination. Thank you Polco once again for making our trip to Milos a long standing memory.

The whole experience was absolutely incredible! We did the private sailboat tour with Captain Niki and Janas and I can’t recommend them and their expertise more. The whole experience from the knowledge shared, to the food and scenery provided, the experience was top notch. Janas went above and beyond to make the whole day one we’d never forget. He truly catered to our every need, all day long! You could tell Captain Niki had been sailing for quite some time. He was the coolest captain we’ve ever had the pleasure of sailing with. If we ever find our way back to Milos, I know this will be the first thing on our agenda again. I can’t recommended enough! If you’re considering it, do it! You won’t regret it :)

You get what you pay for - skip the cheap tours and treat yourself to a once in a lifetime trip to Kleftiko with a 1. fun, knowledgeable and experienced crew, 2. small boat feel (we took the 12 person catamaran tour that could easily fit 20 if not for the focus on a great experience) and 3. Great hospitality, including the fancy hot lunch with multiple options, snacks, unlimited wine and beer, etc. Aggelos (Angelo) was our captain and you couldn’t feel more safe on the water than with him and Georgina. He shared great stories about the rock formations and pirate history, and we loved the special cave tours in the 6 person boat they carried on board. The tour had a nice balance of sailing and making stops for swimming and sightseeing. We got to jump off some cliffs into crystal aqua blue water and snorkeled multiple times. Truly a highlight of our trip to Greece and hope to do again one day soon!

If you can to the island of Milos, you can’t miss to have a experience with Pol.. and his crew. The trip is real amazing to discover the best part of the island. It was the best experience in Greek. Polco Sailing did it outstanding. Fantastic food in the boat, visiting de cave, jumping from the rocks… the best experience you can have in Milos… we really recommend to book with Polco Sailing. We are a couple from Spain! Regards from Marta and Dani 👏🏼
