We sail east out of the bay with the beautiful hillside view of  Kalami area, past the small uninhabited islε of Souda  with its  Venetian fortress , with its cannon ports on the waterline , where they kept the pirate ships out of the bay.    So close you can almost touch it!

ALWAYS depended on wind direction we follow the coast with the magnificent fort of  Ancient Aptera  view high up on the hill with  remote coves  and beautiful beaches below it, always with the spectacular White mountains  in the background, past the tourist crowded beaches,  we reach sailing for the lighthouse of  Drepano.

ALWAYS depended on wind direction we may sail northeast or we may sail northwest behind another small uninhabited island, to  a small cove and  its beautiful lagoon  where while you swim and snorkel in turquoise crystal, clear waters, we prepare you a   freshly cooked Cretan/Spartan lunch  with  Greek specialties, local pasta, local appetizers,  salad, mama's olives, goat cheese, fresh bread and local red wine/beer/soda and local, fresh yogurt with sweet  fruit. You enjoy, relax and then we lift anchor to sail back to port,usually as the sun starts to set in front of us.

We sail for at least 30 n.miles and you can do all the sailing, if you want to, with myself as the navigator and chef.

    Even if you have never sailed before you will be able to learn and do most of the sailing..if you so desire :)


We offer you the best of services, at the most reasonable pricing with a true sailing experience, away from the usual tourist hoopla...

Overnight  Dream Aboard:


Sail with the wind on your side

and the hot sun on your back.

Anchor for the night in a bay and

sleep aboard, under the moon and the stars.
This is your chance to live what everyone dreams about...
Sail out of the bay, sail away to the open, blue Mediterranean Sea, depending on weather conditions, anchor and swim  in    a wild, natural bay   enjoy aboard freshly prepared local specialties  with drinks,  do some  fishing?, lift anchor and sail into the sunset to your overnight bay, take a short dinghy ride out to the beach with perfect restaurants for a night meal, some fun and drinks.
Return aboard, lay back, 
and let the boat dance with the waves, move with the sea, let the rhythm of the water set your soul free... Relax and let the boat  rock you to sleep.

Wake to an amazing sunrise, fresh coffee, breakfast early, quick refreshing  jump-in swim, set sail, explore, snorkel, enjoy some snacks, lay back in the sun fruit and sweets for the return trip back to home port.
