We booked 2 cruises on-line before we left for our holiday, and so glad that we did, as they turned out to be the highlights of our holiday. The first Fiskardo cruise was canceled due to bad weather, but we were re-booked on the next available one. We were collected from Poros harbour, which saved us a drive to Skala,... More

We went on 2 cruises with these guys. First one to Ithika and the 2nd was the coast cruise to Fiscardo. If you book twice you get the second trip with a 15% discount. You can book your trip by calling down to a little office towards the bottom of the Main Street or go down to the meeting point... More

I will just add another very positive review for Captain Vangeli's Cruises having enjoyed a wonderful cruise across to Ithaca. Booking is easy (email, 'reservation book' in Skala or turning up on the day) and all the staff where very friendly, safety orientated, organised, informative and helpful through out the day. We visited Vathi (the Capital City of Ithaca) and... More

In my opinion the cruise is just too popular. Lots of tourists take a cruise like this for €40 to go see Navaggio beach and the Blie Caves in Zakynthos (aka. Zante). As you get in the ship you will see it getting absolutely packed. Of course the best seats go first, so unless you come early and stay in... More

Loved the boat trip yesterday particularly Kioni which was peaceful and simply stunning. Staff on board were friendly and helpful. The day out completed a fab holiday. Thank you

I appreciate that the enjoyment factor of boat trips is largely dependent on the conditions of the sea which is uncontrollable. However, it IS in the captain's control to decide whether it is safe to sail or not and in our case it was not at all safe!!!! Our problem was that when we travelled (16/07/16) there was a storm...

We hired Captain Vangeli's boat to take our wedding party on a trip from Skala to Ithaca. The day was just incredible! The crew were lovely but special mention to Chris for being so wonderful - taking the time to chat with us and making it such a fun day. The stop in Ithaca is great, with time given to... More
