The Mediterranean....

SAILING: trips with myself as the navigator can also be arranged at an extra cost.
Have you ever felt butterflies in you as you lift anchor to sail to an unknown part of the sea and the feeling of returning
to your home port to walk on stable ground.
Do you want to hear the pounding of the waves at your bow and the sea spray on your cheek with the wind on your side and the sun on your back.
Have you dreamed what it is like to drop anchor in a remote cove with the stars and the moon over and experience the true feeling of a free wandering sailor, a feeling of an experience that most people only read in books and day dream about while lounging in a recliner...
All sailing trips are at an extra cost and details can be arranged after or before your arrival at this destination.
_________________YEAR ROUND EXCURSIONS_________________
HIKING:
We have finally accomplished to include an exciting excursion with the need to show travelers the other side of Chania. The wild, of a medium scale hike,with the pristine part of the swim in crystal, virgin waters of a tiny cove away from the hoopla of the tourism. Οn the return we visit and rest in a historic cave, cool off, eat local snacks, and go on to a visit at a 500 yr. old monastery, with beautiful shots of photos, an age old museum and a wine cellar as old as time, with wine and olive oil tasting with the opportunity to buy such items in the cellar gift shop. Need more details? Please ask...
TAKE-A-RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE...
We offer you an excursion thru a small gorge up to a historic village with all the wild nature scenery of the rugged Crete, stop at a special taverna for lunch, to feast on freshly grilled finger licking lamb chops as well as other local special Cretan cuisine with local wine and raki. Continue higher up into a wild ride of nature with really spectacular scenery of villages and mountains that you miss out, if you just... stay at the beach...? We continue to an ancient site with an amphitheater, its fort all in great condition.
This is the only way to experience what makes Crete special year round.
A comfortable, relaxing ride with all the secrets of the mountain life of the Cretans that never go the beach...?

We had a fantastic time on Nikos’ yacht. The boat itself has everything you need and is on easy transport routes. The best part was our sailing day trip which included teaching us to sail, a delicious lunch and swimming in beautiful waters. Thank you Nikos.

We had a fabulous time. Nikos took us sailing one day and we had the opportunity to snorkel off the boat. We saw some amazing fish. He cooked us a delicious lunch while we were swimming. Couldn't rate the stay and sailing trip highly enough.

Nikos fitted us in at short notice and gave us a very friendly and personal welcome. Sadly the weather was not good enough for going out but we will dream of this for next time!

We spent 3 nights on Nikos's boat. You couldn't ask for a better host - from the beginning he got in touch with us, picked us up from the bus station in Chania, and gave a quick tour of the town. Due to a delay with getting engine parts, we couldn't go sailing, but instead we wen…

Hi all! I'm Nikos! I love sailing and the sea with an utmost respect. Traveling has been a constant habit since very early in my life. "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside…
