Eco cruising has been running responsible dolphin/wildlife watching...

Eco cruising has been running responsible dolphin/wildlife watching cruises, since 2010. During relaxing, pleasurable and educational cruises we guide people in the unique protected ecosystem of Amvrakikos Gulf, West Greece, trying to promote environmental awareness.

We cruise with our traditional wooden boat in small groups with maximum capacity 25 people.

Eco cruising is the family effort of Vasilis Lekkas & Venetia Gigi. Vasilis is a marine biologist –environmentalist with a MSc on Coastal Zone Management, skipper, PADI diving and first aid instructor. Venetia is fisheries & aquaculture technologist with a MSc on Coastal Zone Management, crew and blogger.

I recommend this trip to families with young children as it is very interesting. The guys who are organising the trip are very funny but in the same time very professional. They give You a lot of informations abou dolphins and the area. Is a must go if You are in the area.

Regarding the Friday you mention, the previous day was a big storm in Preveza that caused damages to several boats in our port. Also please keep in mind that Vasiliki is quite a way from Preveza and as you mentioned you had storms on... More

I've been on this trip a couple of times and both were amazing experiences. The dolphins are awesome! Vasilis, Venetia and Vasilis are friendly and hospitable as well as knowledgeable about the gulf and its ecosystem. We saw so many dolphins even babies. A great day out!

I was afraid that this trip would be a "business" like affair with dolphins as a bookend but I was wrong...it was much much more than that. It was probably one of the best family times we... More
