We used this company for a day out to Ithaka and it was amazing. The boat is glass bottomed and high speed so lots and lots of fun. They allowed you plenty of time to explore on the various stops and the staff were superb very helpful friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended for a day out to remember.

“Very choppy sea in morning!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

We booked a great trip by boat up to the northern village of Fiskardo. This was a very pretty little village in the north of island was was virtually undamaged by the earthquake of 1953. The trip was well documented by Captain Vangeli even though there was quite a swell in the morning and we rolled about alot!
We also visited an underground lake and cave and had lunch at a small waterfront Taverna with swim stops on the way and on the return journey. This was good value and much cheaper than visiting the north of the island by coach with Thomsons. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.

“Alan & Karen S, Kefalonia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We've been on a few of the Captain Vangeli's trips over the years & never been disappointed. Trips to the 3 Islands & Ithica, amongst others, are good value, the boat is very clean & the staff friendly & welcoming. We would always recommend them.

“3 island cruise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

There seemed to be too many guests on the boat. The seats were not very comfartable when we eventually got to sit down. The lunch stop was not till 2.30 so we did not get to eat till around 3. With the early start, it was far too late for lunch.

Vangelis S, Owner at Captain Vangeli's Special Cruises, responded to this review, October 11, 2013
Although it is not our policy to answer the comments of our guests, on this occasion we feel we must answer this review to clarify:-

1, We have never done a 3 Island Cruise.
2. All our cruises leave the beach of Skala at 0900hrs.
3. Our lunch stops are between 1300hrs and 1430hrs, apart from the Zante Cruise (1200hrs to1400hrs).
4. We never put too many guests on board, seats are available for every passenger. The boat sails below full capacity on every occasion.

It is very evident these comments were for another Cruise, another boat and another company - not for Captain Vangelis Special Cruises.

We would therefore request that you remove this review and place it with the Company you sailed with.
