This was our first-time sailing as a family as we wanted to do something different for our holiday this year. Ray was a brilliant host and made us welcome aboard Mala from the minute we arrived. Our course meant we saw most of the stunning Ionian Islands during our week, visiting some great little harbours and coves on the way for snorkelling in the crystal blue waters plus a different taverna each night for sun-downers and supper.
Thanks Ray for all your hospitality and seamanship, it was a really great week and exactly the family adventure we were looking for.
Can't recommend Ray and Steve enough. They are really lovely genuine people. We have just returned from the best day ever with the guys.
If you are looking for a yacht to charter in kefalonia then this is the one. Guys we will be back next year for a week. Thank you for the best day ever.
We had never been on a yacht before and Ray immediately made us feel comfortable and at home. We were on Mala and the yacht was lovely and very well kept with lots of room. The food which Ray prepared for us was exquisite and it was always all eaten quickly. Ray also has a very good knowledge of the Sea around Kefalonia, he also knew the locals well and recommended certain restaurants and foods which were all divine. He was a lovely host and we can not recommend him enough to anyone, he is a kind man and very easy to talk to.
Thank you very much!
We spent a fabulous day with Ray (ably assisted by steve) on his beautiful boat sailing around the coast of Kephalonia. We were treated to a very special day with swimming stops in secluded bays, delicious lunch and some impromptu singing and joke telling. Ray was very informative and we were looked after like royalty!
It was such a relaxing day which we all thoroughly enjoyed and a day (or more) will be a requirement for future holidays!
A fabulous day - can't recommend highly enough
We had great a great week circumnavigating Kefalonia with a little stop off in Ithaka too.
We are not sailors but we were happy to help Ray out when needed although he had everything under control at all times.
Ray made a tasty and healthy breakfast and lunch each day and we would have dinner in a local taverna. No straighteners or hairdryers ladies - just a hose pipe on the quay, a dip in the sea or a few euros for a shower in a local apartment!
A fab time.
Wow...what a week of adventure on the water. Ray was a great host and we felt very relaxed in his company. His yacht Mala is a little beauty and it was fun being rocked to sleep at night when moored and enjoying the days either sailing or motoring to our choice of destinations including the Island of Zakinthos. Pre lunch swims in beautiful crystal clear water and fabulous lunches became the order of the day and supper in little tavernas harbourside watching the world go by with a cold glass of wine in hand made for a fabulous week. As vegetarians in Greece we were at times hard pressed to find food that was suitable for us but Ray was such a kind considerate host and always kept us well fed with beautiful veggie lunches including a fantastic curry which was a first for him and tasted amazing! We were also lucky enough to meet his beautiful wife and had a fabulous last night groovin and moving with them both and hope to return the favour when they visit us here in Cornwall! Thanks again Ray and Nicky...it was a blast!
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!
