With Kaïki Agios Georgios

On Day Trip sailing from Paros to Koufonissia

We start our day by crossing the channel between Paros and Naxos, after about 1,5 hours we make our first stop at a picturesque bay on the southern coast of Naxos Island. Time for our first dip into the blue water under the tiny chapel of Agios Sostis.

Οccasionally Route modification

The further route depends on wind conditions, but we will make sure to choose the best places to stop, swim and snorkel.

If we are lucky we will also see dolphins. Snorkelling equipment is available on the board.

Around noon

We drop the anchor and Captain Yiannis prepares a few “mezedes” and lights up the BBQ, and offers a glass of ouzo, wine and refreshments.

The coastline of the Small Cyclades

Especially that of Koufonisia Islands (Epano & Kato Koufonisi), is fantastic. Amazing rock formations and crystal clear waters from green-turquoise to deep blue colours.

In the beautiful light of the sunset

We sail back to Piso Livadi, after a day full of unique impressions and good atmosphere.

    Wonderful day at sea with Captain Yiannis This was a magical day from start to finish. Captain Yiannis is the most genial host, so easy going and generous. We had free water, wine and beer all day, coffee and cookies on arrival, a substantial lunch, lots of swimming opportunities with masks and snorkels provided if needed, and a good playlist to keep us enterained. We were four adults, my husband and I and our daughter and her friend and we all enjoyed the day.

    Nice but rushed and not enough seating Took this 9-14-21. Got on in Poros. Seating taken up by rude tourist. Forced to sit in smoking section. Gross. There were seats but when ask to sit people just spread their stuff out. Very very rude. Then forced to sit in cabin. Hit snd zero views. Crew did nothing about lack of outdoor seating. Rushed beaches. Rather have more time on one beach than a few minutes on 3.fun but crowded and no nice seating unless you get on first apparently. I would rent a boat for next time. Same price. You can sit outside and not run from beach to beach for a few minutes. Also difficult to get on and off at beaches. Just the design of boat but iffy.

    Amazing boat trip ?? Very nice day out with Captain Yiannis ! It was quite a windy day but we felt really safe and had a wonderful cruise. He took us to very pretty swimming spots. The food on board is really good and there is plenty to eat and drink for everyone. My boyfriend and my dad also had a great time !

    la plus belle journée de notre séjour sur paros Notre meilleure journée à paros fut celle passée à bord avec le captain yannis. Nous avons adoré cette excursion en bateau et nous la recommandons vivement. Cela reste un indispensable à faire sur l’île de paros. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par le captain, la nourriture était excellente et nous avons pu nager dans des endroits insolites ( grottes , eaux cristallines , criques préservées ) . Les plus téméraires ont pu plonger des falaises et pour couronner le tout nous avons eu la chance de croiser la route d’un dauphin . Une journée inoubliable.

    Une journée extraordinaire ! 8 août 2021 Son bateau, son accueil, le café du matin, le bbq à bord avc ses salades, les boissons fraîches tout au long de la journée, les encas de l'après-midi, les 5 baignades sur des spots où ns étions seuls, la mise à disposition de masques/tubas/frites, la musique juste comme il faut, la sortie du foc en fin de journée : Captain Yannis a pensé à tout pour que cette sortie soit un très beau souvenir ! Et même si le prix représente un budget, une activité qui occupe de 9:30 à 19:00 avc ces prestations, vraiment, nous recommandons ! Valérie V.
