About
Zeus is a beautiful traditional wooden sailing boat. Every cruise feels exclusive thanks to the small number of passengers and the generous space on board. The deck comfortably carries 12 sunbeds so there's always one for every passenger and guaranteeing relaxation. Due to the high demand pre-booking via email is strongly recommended: zeuslazydayz@hotmail.com. We sail daily at 10.00 from the beautiful harbour of Kardamena and cruise along the southerly shores of Kos. The water is calm and clear and the beautiful beaches and scenery are breathtaking. Masks and snorkels are included and you'll have the opportunity to swim at three incredibly beautiful spots including a bay where you’ll see hundreds of fish and a place where volcanic gas escapes from the sea bed forming a natural jacuzzi. A delicious Greek style Meze lunch is served at the captain's table. Alcoholic and soft drinks are served throughout the day. Our aim is to help you relax and enjoy the best day of your holiday.

We go to Kos on a family holiday every year and booking a trip on Zeus has become part of the tradition.
There are usually around 10 of us which makes it fun and still lots of space on board.
Getting in and out of the sea is good and equipment is supplied.

Kate is a great host and Phil the Captain was also very knowledgeable.

Lunch is served on board and was again very tasty this year with the addition of the pulled lemon chicken. A number of drinks are also available to purchase on board and very low cost.

We went to 3 lovely locations and this year were able to make use of the water sports too. The water sports team pick up anyone wanting to do water sports from the boat in their boat and take you to the beach, a great addition to the services already offered.

Yet again another great trip this year which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Having previously experienced days out on the water with Zeus, I would highly recommend giving it a try. We have been a number of times to Kos and it always delivers.
You will find boats on the island that offer 3 island cruises but for me they are not personalized to you or your guests. (I have done a number in the past but after Zeus never again) They are very packed and food is for me ok but nothing to write home about. More canteen serving the large capacity guests on board rather than you as individuals. You are also rushed with, so long here and so long there to fit in the three islands.

For me Zeus offered something different and really tailored to you as individuals. The crew talk through the route, the plan of your time on board and ask for your input too. We have had lovely lazy runs up the coast from Kardamena seeing the island from a different perspective. We had plenty of swim stops (plenty of things on board to use as well) in the crystal clear waters and spending time at the islands talking point "Bubble Beach" swimming through the bubbles as they emerge from the sea bed. Also seeing Kefalos's own Mama Mia church on its own island. Take your Go Pro for some great action in the water or your camera for some great shots/selfies to take home.
Hospitality and their attention to detail with outstanding customer services really makes this trip special. Not to mention the bar and the lovely freshly made food on board. Its great for upto 10 guests so never feels packed plenty of space on deck to catch some rays for topping up that tan. Check them out on Facebook or their web site if you want more info. I so wish I was there now. Try them you will love it

This was such an amazing day from start to finish! I booked this months in advance for me and my friends (6 of us total) while we were staying in Kardamena on holiday. We were made to feel super welcome as soon as we arrived, everything about the day was explained upfront so we knew what to expect. Kate and Vincent were both really friendly and accomodating, going round to see if we wanted to order any drinks (very reasonably priced bar too). We made 3 stops total, my favourite was seeing the sea bream and being able to snorkel with them. We were very lucky with the weather as it was lovely and sunny but breezy enough that you could lay out on the sunbeds without being overheated. Our lunch was included in the price and was really tasty, we shared it with the other guests on the boat and got to chat with them which was nice. All in all could not recommend this trip enough, it was by far the best money we spent during our time in Kos and will definitely do it again if we ever go back to Kardamena.

If you're looking for something to do while in Kos, I can't recommend ENOUGH this full day trip with Kate and Richard!

Absolutely fantastic, they were informative about all the stops on the trip, allowed good time for anyone to go for a swim at each point and even fed some fish during lunch!

Lunch was incredible, very accommodating for people (vegan/veggie options!) and was very fresh and enjoyable! We had a drink included in the price as well as this lunch! Large selection of drinks available and offered regularly!

The boat is beautiful and clearly loved and well looked after. Extremely comfortable with plenty of space on the deck to sunbathe! It take up to 10 people so its intimate but perfect if you're not wanting the crammed larger boats that go out daily... so glad we walked passed Kate and Zeus and had the opportunity to chat, we popped a deposit down straight away for the next day!

This was the second time we sailed on Zeus with Kate and actually the deciding factor in us booking Kardemena for the second year running. You'll remember this day trip forever. Ultimate relaxation on board and absolute heaven swimming in the surrounding crystal waters. A bit more expensive than other available trips but this really is superior and doesn't compare to any other trip we've done or seen. This is definitely the one you should book, you will not regret it! We plan to return and do this again. Thanks Kate and Phil again for the experience.

Kate was very helpful when I contacted her from the UK because of changes in our trip due to covid.
The boat is truly beautiful has everything you want on board it was really nice to have a maximum of 10 people with enough beds for all.
The lunch was really tasty and loads of it. It was a really nice time to chat with other people on board as well as Kate and Vincent.
The drinks very reasonabley priced as well as freezing cold which is definitely needed.
Each place we came to Kate talked through the best areas to visit. All three stops provided lovely snorkeling and a chance for some to show of their abilities jumping in the water.
One recommendarion is to make sure you bring and use plenty of sunscreen!
Thank you for a lovely day it was brilliant wish you all the best for the season.

We had a fabulous time onboard Zeus, fortunately for us it was a real intimate day out due to there only being 5 guests on that day which resulted in what felt like a real private trip.
I know that the operator never over books places anyway to avoid a crowded deck unlike other boat trips available.

We visited the 3 bays starting with Bubble beach swimming out to experience the natural spa, we then continued onto the next bay feeding the fish and snorkeling surrounded by the fish! Masks / snorkels were provided alongside noodles if you required a little confidence in the water.
Once back on board we tucked into a lovely lunch provided with either a sangria or a beer included with the price.

The final bay was our opportunity to swim out to shore to ring the good luck bell on the little remote island but we decided to spectate from the deck and enjoyed watching Michaela ( crew) do us the honours allowing us to have a drink and a chat to Alan the captain.

Both Alan and Michaela made this a fun experience! They worked perfectly together as a team with their personalities complementing each other.

The trip was comfortable and very well ran, and Michaela made sure we were never thirsty 😉
Would highly recommend this trip!

Cheap drinks ✓
Refreshing homemade food (accommodating for vegetarians) ✓
A day in the sun ✓
Amazing destinations ✓

Couldn't recommend this enough.

This was one of our highlights on our trip to Kos. The food and drinks were amazing and at each stop there was some amazing snorkeling to do. The stop at paradise beach was BEAUTIFUL and should be on everyone's bucket list.

Obviously it can get windy out at sea but you can borrow blankets if needed. The host and captain were both really friendly and knowledgeable and made the trip even better.

Where to start? Worth every euro and then some!

We are a party of 6 (four adults and two teens). We love a boat trip, but our autistic daughter really struggles with too many people around her. This trip was perfect. There is a maximum 10 people on board!

Start to finish we recieved 5* treatment. Kate and Vincent are so helpful, friendly and accommodating. The three stops are picturesque and amazing. The memorable stop for us was Kastri Island where Vincent took us out cliff jumping (he is very persuasive), showing us the marine life and talking about the island. My daughter was also in her element driving us all the way home!

The food is beautiful, the drinks very reasonably priced and the atmosphere is chilled and calm. What more could you want. An absolute gem and a must do if you visit the island.

We wanted to have a day out doing something different on our second family holiday to Kos and found this, and we're so pleased that we did.
We boarded at 10am and disembarked at 5pm and every minute in between was simply amazing!
The owner (Kate) and the Captain (Richard) were the most brilliant hosts, friendly, chatty, offering stories and conversation to us and our 3 children (13,12 & 9) the whole day.
The boat holds 10 people but we wanted some unique family time so opted to pay a little bit more to have it all to ourselves and it was just fantastic.
we sailed to 3 different destinations and there was plenty of time at each one for us to go snorkeling and swimming with all the fishes and the kids had a blast jumping off the boat into the clear blue water.
Richard joined us in the water too to help us out in case any of us struggled at all and he was so good with the children and getting us to the best spots like at bubble beach to see the bubbles streaming from the sea bed.
Kate did a lovely job providing us with a gorgeous lunch and snacks later on, we were all very full and after all the excitement of the day all that was left was the dreamy sail back to Kardamena on which we all chilled around the sun deck taking in the tranquility and beauty of the sea and the Kos coastline.
We, and all the children agreed it was the best day of our holiday and if (when) we come back to Kos, we will definitely be booking this again, it truly was a magical day.
Thanks to Kate and Richard for being excellent hosts, you were a great team.
If you're looking for a boat trip that goes the extra mile, then goes a bit further, just book this, you will not regret it! :)
