Booked this trip for my boyfriend and I during our stay in Charnia. Excellent correspondence from the beginning from Nikos and was easy to find the location. We had a lovely four hour sailing trip and it was well worth the money. Nikos is very knowledgeable about Crete so we also got a free history lesson thrown into the mix.... More

We rented Nikos boat (boat + Nikos) for a daytrip in the area around Chania's old harbour. We went to three locations for some snorkeling and swimming. During the trip drinks and food were supplied, especially at noon a table with nice pure food was presented. Super relaxing trip on the sea, pure bliss. Don't forget to use sunlotion !... More

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful afternoon sailing with Nikos, who let us manouevre the boat as my boyfriend has some experience in it. Was both good for him to brush up his skills as well as enjoy the sea! Nikos was super accommodating and friendly, which made the trip truly enjoyable and we have already promised to come... More

My wife and I went out with Captain Nikos and had a blast! We went to several different beaches and islands and there were multiple stops for swimming and snorkeling. The water is beautiful and there are a lot of cool reefs to see. The Captain himself was so funny and a great companion on the trip, he always had... More

We never sailed before and now we want to sail forever! Niko is not only a great Skipper, he is a real personality. We felt very welcome on Board, as he also speaks english and german communicating was great. He explained us sailing basics, all about the Islands history and we had refreshing talks about a lot of interesting topics.... More

Great day sailing with Nikos and Notos sailing. We had a good day out in high seas, 4m + swell. Nikos was great, made us feel comfortable on his yacht. A few wave troughs higher than expected but our captain and his yacht rode them no problem. A safe and exciting opportunity, great company, good simple food, beer and wine.... More

True story: My partner and I were staying in Malia for a week and I wanted to do something special for him so I secretly booked an all day boat trip with rockstar Captain Nikos. We had to drive from Malia to Chania which I didn't realize was quite so far. My bad. We showed up an hour late and... More

Had an amazing day sailing with skipper Nikos! Had the whole boat for the 3 of us. Lots of Crete history from Nikos, stopped at 3 locations, had a delicious spread of food! Can't fault any of it, sailed back siting on the deck with our feet in the waves, what a wonderful trip, a definite must for anyone! Thanks... More

What a wonderful day we spent with Nikos on his beautiful sailing boat. We sailed, we ate a lovely lunch provided by our entertaining skipper, we swam in the beautiful turquoise sea, we circled Kri Kri Island, visited a secret beach and snorkelled over a WWII plane wreck. A very relaxing day, filled with much laughter. Nikos shared his wide... More

My sister and I spent a day sailing with Captain Nikos. He was everything you would expect a Cretan Sea Captain to be. Handsome, funny, highly intelligent with a deep understanding of Cretan history, culture, food and music, all of which he is happy to share with you. The day offered the opportunity to swim in pristine water, in private... More
