ALWAYS depended on wind direction we follow the coast with the magnificent fort of Ancient Aptera view high up on the hill and the Idjedin prison fortress just 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.
