“Great day on the waves!”

We have just come back from a lovely day sailing with Ray on his boat Mala! Ray was the perfect host and prepared a very tasty lunch which we enjoyed on the very well kitted out yacht.

The day started with a quick briefing explaining the day and going through some of the basics of sailing. With Ray's expertise and genuine enthusiasm we could tell from the beginning that this trip was going to be a great experience.

We would strongly recommend Ray and Sail Kefalonia to anyone looking for a unique experience and to see beautiful Kefalonia!

“Fabulous Week - Camping on water!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Had a great week on Mala with Captain Ray. Very basic bunk rooms - shower on quay side from hosepipe or in local taverna at each stop. Ray provided breakfast and lunch (whilst we swam and snorkelled in remote bays). In a different port every night across Kefalonia, Lefkada, Ithaca and Zante for supper. I loved it - so relaxing just watching the world go by from the water - no internet, just a small bag of clothes. We are not sailors, but felt totally confident with Ray as our skipper - we could help under instruction if we wanted, or just sit back and let him do it all. We stayed for the week before on Kafalonia to get used to the sun and heat - as you can't get away from it on the water - and some days we were at sea for 7 hours between islands - so glad we did that. Then we just got a taxi to the port which is right by the airport - so all very easy to meet up with the yacht. Ray such a great captain and a lovely guy. Thank you Ray for a great holiday from all of us.

“What a fantastic trip”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We would highly recommend this experience on board Mala , beautifully equipped sailing boat. We sailed , helped tack, had great fun and felt very safe . Our experienced skipper Ray put even our friend who was not so relaxed about being at sea " At Ease ". We didnt want our day to end and if we get an opportunity we would board this yacht tomorrow for a fab holiday . ⛵️Thankyou Ray and Stewart for such a memorable day the food was so tasty, drinks , champagne were also delightful and we will hold our trip forever in our memories .

“A Fabulous Day Out”

Very much enjoyed our time on the Motor Yacht Carolina for a day trip to Ithaca. We had a number of opportunities to swim in coves that were inaccessible by road. Had lunch at a lovely restaurant in Kioni on Ithaca that was recommended by the Captain.

“Excellent Day out Sailing Experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We booked a day's sailing trip with Ray for 7 of us during our stay in Kefalonia. Our party included a mixture of adults, teenagers and young children. This was a fantastic trip! Ray and Stewart were brilliant, informative hosts. They provided a fabulous lunch which was included in the booking cost (something we've not benefitted from on previous sail trips) and managed the trip to ensure we all enjoyed every minute. We were keen to book a day sailing trip, so tried to do this at the start of our two week holiday. As Ray's trips are popular, I would suggest booking as soon as possible to ensure you can get your preferred date.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this sailing trip for any, and all, age groups. A fabulous, memorable day out.

Thanks Ray!

We have two teenagers 18 and 14 and were looking for a holiday which would be suitable for us all. Spending a week sailing with Ray on Mala was perfect. He is a fantastic host, excellent company, provides the tastiest lunches, advises you on sailing or leaves you to rest and watch the scenery but best of all, he takes you to the most beautiful, isolated coves full of fish for the opportunity to swim in the clear Mediterranean waters. We had a fantastic week and were made to feel very special. Thank you Ray for a fabulous experience and we have recommended you to all our friends.

Ray provided an excellent 3 day tour of Kefalonia and surrounding islands. The food on board was tasty. Ray was very accommodating and took great care of us and our friends. Our itinerary was flexible and we were able to adjust based on the weather and our interests. Thanks to Ray for an excellent few days on board. Whether or not you have sailed before, this is a great way to see some of the islands.
