Find a pebbled beach with larger pebbles on the western side and smaller ones on the east.

We had an amazing day out on this trip last week. The crew were both very friendly and we were lucky enough to have six other like minded guests who were very easy to get on with. We stopped four times throughout the day to visit beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots only accessible by boat. There were two paddle boards which were also fun to use and explore the various coves and beaches. The lunch was nice and there was plenty on offer to drink. If you are considering a day sailing from kefalonia, I would definitely recommend this trip!

Really nice day trip with stops to beautiful, secluded coves and beaches. Evan and Vaggelis were great, very friendly and engaging. In addition to piloting the boat, they prepared a nice snack and lunch, and they provided equipment including snorkeling gear and paddle boards.

We had a great long day visiting three different places to stop and swim. This meant we spent a long time moving and there is very little room to sit on the deck. Also, I felt the food offered was very basic and it wouldn't have taken too much skill to make something a little more appetising. The drinks were a little slow to be offered as well. However, it didn't spoil what was a lovely day but you did ask.
