A great day at sea to circumnavigate Milos on a sailboat. However, the wind conditions did not allow any canvassing. Dora, our host has a perfect knowledge of the island and its history. Sailing, listening, diving, swimming, eating and finally discovering places inaccessible from the island, this is the program from 9 a.m. to over 7 p.m. I recommend JP

The whole trip was smooth sailing (pun unintended). The group size per yacht was perfect. Crew were helpful and awesome. Lunch and drinks were fantastic. We got to take many beautiful photos as well! Would definitely recommend our friends to go with Polco Sailing.

Best bang for your buck. Worth more than it costs for sure. Still blown away with how friendly the workers and captain were. Would 10000000% recommend. The food was great. The views were outstanding.

Definitely a highlight of our trip! We got to see some of the most amazing sights and swim in the most incredible waters.

Indispensable pour vraiment apprécier la beauté de Milos
