What people are saying about Ithaca

We had an amazing day out on this trip last week. The crew were both very friendly and we were lucky enough to have six other like minded guests who were very easy to get on with. We stopped four times throughout the day to visit beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots only accessible by boat. There were two paddle boards which were also fun to use and explore the various coves and beaches. The lunch was nice and there was plenty on offer to drink. If you are considering a day sailing from kefalonia, I would definitely recommend this trip!

The cruise was very nice. A large boat which made our voyage smooth. The stops were good and surely take advantage of the swim stops. Note the direction of the sun if you need to worry about it as it gets quite hot. Only issue was that we were not on the inventory of passengers. But they let us on board when I showed them the online booking confirmation.

Really nice day trip with stops to beautiful, secluded coves and beaches. Evan and Vaggelis were great, very friendly and engaging. In addition to piloting the boat, they prepared a nice snack and lunch, and they provided equipment including snorkeling gear and paddle boards.

The day boat trip was amazing. Kefalania was beautiful and it had great shops. The beaches we swam on where amazing. The boat had a snack bar with food and drink that you can purchase. I would definitely recommend this tour and do it again.

Wonderful day out, the boat is v comfortable, you visit some of the most beautiful beaches and bays in Greece and the crew Evan and Vangellis are relaxed, friendly and attentive.
