    This experience was incredible, the two guides were personable and their experience sailing was quite obvious. They led us through the mechanics of sailing and let a brave few take the reins. The sailing yacht, and the areas we stopped to see were both beautiful. The photos that came out were spectacular and I can't imagine having experienced Crete without doing so from the sea. We can't thank the guides enough for a great day on the water.

    We had an incredible full day trip with Manolis and George for my mother’s birthday. We were 8 people and the boat was comfortable for all of us. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling in some beautiful places with complimentary masks. We were served very delicious dakos and hand pies at our first stop and a wonderful and filling lunch at our second stop and unlimited beers, soft drinks and wine the whole day. Highly recommended!

    If you like the water and learning about Chania and Crete, this is a must do activity! Panos and George are the best. They are patient, funny, and love sharing their passion and knowledge of both the island and sailing with you. In addition to having one of the most relaxing days of our life, we learned a ton about so many different things. I also appreciated their patience as I tried to learn more Greek. This is not one of those rush here, rush there tours. You have plenty of time to relax and soak up the Grecian sun, swim, learn about sailing, or just fall asleep like my husband did :) We cannot wait to come back and do this again. Thanks again to Panos and George!
