We stayed 3 nights ( September 2018) on the comfortable sailboat. What a great experience - living on a sailboat.
The little harbour sheltered the waves and we had a very good nights sleep and enjoyed our time on the boat. Chania is just a short distance away and there is also a lot to explore in the surrounding area.
Nikos took us on a one day sailing trip ( we had to wait until the weather conditions were right and on our last day we were lucky and had the chance to go)
He showed us how to sail, which was great fun because we were total beginners and while we swam, he surprised us with an amazing spread of very tasty local dishes for lunch.
We had an awesome time.
Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience.
We enjoyed it so much.

I want to thank you for taking the time to visit us and spend time aboard our sailboat as well as for your beautiful company while we went out sailing the bay and the Cretan Sea. My reward is meeting excellent people such as you , from all different places of the world. I hope that you will visit our island again in the future, it has so much more to offer. I wish you the best in all of life's travels and may the wind be on your side, always.
Sincerely,

We had a marvelous time sailing with Nikos. We learned how to sail and the history of the local attractions. He cooked a delicious traditional meal with locally grown veggies. I highly recommend taking a trip with Nikos.

It was my pleasure to have met you and of course it was simply a lot of fun to have you aboard with your excellent company while we sailed. I thank you for your nice review and i will always look forward to seeing you again.
So throw away the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails! Explore. Dream and Discover!

What an amazing time! We spent 3 days with Nikos on both land and sea adventuring up to the villages in the mountains and sailing to the farthest tip of the bay. He cooked us incredible Greek food on the boat and took us to the best restaurants. We were so lucky to have found Nikos and would have spent more time with him if we could. It's amazing to see the island through Nikos eyes. If you are looking for a genuine experience please go this route! You are the BEST Nikos, hasta la próxima vez mi amigo. ¡Abrazos!
