What people are saying about Halkidiki

Dimitris is a very positive and nice person. Trip was well-organised. I really appreciated his effort to take pictures of everyone so nobody would be afraid for their phones to get wet or fall into the water. Before the trip started I was a little bit afraid because I never went with a kayak and also the sea was a litte bit wavey, but in the end it wasnt really hard for me, that is why I would recommend this trip even for beginners. All the islands we visited were really beautiful.

We had a fabulous time on our trip with Captain Marco. Marco was so knowledgeable, attentive and kind during our day on the boat. The stops were fabulous. We also had a child with us who was having her first boat trip and he made her feel so comfortable and welcome.

We had a lovely time. Our captain, Marco, was brilliant and knowledgeable. The boat was fab and all worked well with finding the boat. We stopped at a great fish restaurant. Had a lovley time swimming.

An amazing day. Our skipper Marco was fantastic and couldn’t have been more accommodating. We parked up at different coves and dove into the sea, and even went snorkelling. 10/10

Great experience, nice host and beautiful sailing weather !
