“An absolute must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Having been travelling to Naxos for 30 years on and off but have never considered a boat trip round the island before. This was absolutely brilliant. Captain Panos and Spiros were fantastic hosts. They took us to a couple of nice places to swim and dive. we stopped for lunch and then went Dolphin spotting. It was so much fun . We were exhausted at the end of the day. To top it off Spiros had taken photos and video footage all day and we were given a disk of the photos at the end of the trip. If you do nothing else on Naxos- do this. You will not regret it.

“Wow...what a day of incredible sailing and hospitality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Not only is this sailing trip a fantastic adventure of swimming in clear turqoise water near caves, under water pictures, dolphins, cliff jumping over Ravina cave, lunch visit to Koufanissi Island, but Panos and Spiros are the most hospitable people I have ever met. Whatever you want, they will do it! They also give you a cd of the days pictures...free of charge. I especially enjoyed hanging out at the end of the day with Panos and his wife Irene at the port. They are truly genuine and I highly recommend this sailing adventure. Best wishes Panos!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Spent the day with Captain Spanos and Spiros yesterday. We had a great and hot day! We could swim in places we would have never been alone! Tips: take your own GoPro camera cause you can jump from a cliff and swim in an undersea cavern! Great memories! We want to take the other cruise now. Thanks to the captain, his nice wife and Spiros who keep you entertain! Hugz from the french girls!

“Great day in Naxos! A must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is a must do while in naxus. My wife and I had a great time. We did 3 sailing tours in diferent islands and this was the one we enjoyed the most. It is absolutely worth every penny. The boat stops in incredible places and if you are lucky enough to find nice people on board the day will be even better. You can swim and do some snorkling in incredible clear waters! The great thing about this tour is that it is quite comfortable since the boat has pillows all around and you can find diferent place to seat. Most boats dont have this. Also there is a good balance between sun and shadow. Captain Panos and Piros were great and took us photos all the time (even under water). By the end of the trip we got a cd with all the photos.

By the end of our trip we saw a dolphin that swimmed by the boat for some minutes.

We loved spending the day touring with Panos and Spiros. The island tour was gorgeous and a super day out. A great balance of touring/swimming and lunch. Highly recommend!
