This was a beyond fun day! We had so much on this boat and visiting islands. We were able to lay out and get sun on the bow, jam out to our music, and have yummy lunch a fun waterside tavern. They were also super kind to provide us with sandwiches, drinks, and fruit and it was delicious. We would come back every time we’re in Greece.
Great experience with captain and crew! Very good communication from the start and excellent hospitality. The yacht was in great condition and luxurious. The greek salad they served us was very delicious as well!
