Don't hesitate to book this trip. I spent two days on the boat and it was the one of the best times of my life.

Nikos is wonderful person who really goes the extra mile to give you a special experience. When I arrived he picked me up at the airport and provided a tour of local area before taking me to the boat for my stay. The sailboat is docked in calm harbor within walking distance of local restaurants, shops, coffee. I slept very well on the boat.

The next day Nikos arrived for our day of sailing with plenty of food and drink and we set out. I learned the basics of sailing as we navigated the area. Nikos knows the local history and there's plenty to see and learn about. While the wind was not perfect for sailing that day, however Nikos is very experienced and this was no problem. He made the best of it and took me to quiet lagoon and prepared lunch while I went snorkeling in the turquoise waters. Lunch was delicious and the best food I had had while in Greece.

I am very grateful for my stay. Thank you Nikos for everything. I would not hesitate to return.

Most of all I want to express my appreciation to have met and spend time with Matt.
With a great personality, a happy outlook for life and great conversation about all the new things around, you are the best of company to enjoy the day out at sea with sun and the blue waters.
It was my pleasure to have you spend time aboard our sailboat "ΩΡΙΩΝ", and I surely want to thank you for your awesome review. It is a great feeling to know that you have enjoyed all the time you spent aboard as well as your vacation in Crete.
Keep a smile on, enjoy life at its fullest and I surely hope to see you again.

Wonderful and gracious host and teacher. Captain extraordinaire with the sailing lessons and the gift of the helm with his watchful eye and sea awareness. Making us feel supported and safe. Loved the calm lagoon we rested for our snorkling adventures midday. Returning to the boat Nikos had prepared a local farmer's market lunch. The sea air made our lunch bursting with flavours. The rest of the day was spent sailing the cool blue majestic sea around the island. An invigorating and memorable night and day excursion. An experience we look forward to sharing again. Efharisto Nikos!

We had a great day with Nick on his boat. The marina is close to the city and very easy to get there.The boat is an older lady but in nice condition and a very safe. Nick is very kind and excellent guide and experiented sailor. Hi knows every beautiful place around and will show you so much as a possible. We had a nice trip to one of the most beautiful small laguna i ever seen and while we were diving hi prepared a tasty great greek lunch from lokal and home made delicatesse. Nick was a great company and we don't had a feeling of at we are paying costumers more like old friends. We still keeping touch and we definitely going to see him again. Thanks for everything see you hopefully soon Mark, Gabi and Donat
