Full description
Make your way to Piso Livadi Port and board a sailing boat for your memorable full-day cruise. The yacht leaves Paros every morning and takes you sailing for an entire day around the Small Cyclades Islands.   Depending on the weather conditions, the skipper will sail towards the island of Iraklia, where you will stop in a secluded cove to snorkel around a World War II plane wreck. The island of Schinoussa or Koufonisia is the next stop. After a swim in the turquoise colored waters, you’ll be served a lunch prepared by the crew.   Later in the afternoon, take a short swim off the coast of Naxos Island. If the winds are strong the skipper will set sail westward, towards the sheltered coasts of Antiparos and Despotiko. These islands are hidden gems just waiting to be explored. You will return to Paros at approximately 7:00-7:30 PM, depending on the weather.

We enjoyed the 10h boat trip, however there were definitely things to be improved like the food and beverage served. We only got a pasta dish with tomate sauce, some fruit and a salad. All was served in the morning and no snacks or drinks were almost left in the afternoon. In terms of beverage, there were just a couple of cokes, beers,...in our opinion, poor for the price we paid. However, we visited three beautiful spots and the crew was nice. The schedules were also met accordingly.

I did not appreciate how long we would be sailing for to get to the Cyclades So 2.5hours for first stop. It was a 11 hour day with the majority of it sailing / motoring. The water was really choppy so was not ideal for sailing. Our skipper smoked all the time. Not that pleasant for non smokers on a really small yatcht

Great trip, but just a little long.

The voyage and Captain Kostas were amazing. The limited number of passengers (8) were perfect for the size of the boat. The Lady K is a gorgeous sailing vessel and conditions made for a relatively smooth voyage while still allowing to travel under sail on sections. The snacks and meal were fantastic, and the stopping points were gorgeous. The only down side for us was the overall length of the outing, but that is purely a personal issue, and not a statement against the crew or vessel. It was a day well spent, and I would recommend it to others looking for this type of outing.
