What you'll do

Attention! If you are not physically fit or have disabilities, PLEASE do not book this experience for your own safety!

One of the benefits of being docked in Zygi is that it is between Larnaca and Limassol (Limassol being the closest). You can get a bus from Larnaca as well as from Limassol to drive you to Zygi. We shall cast off from the port of Zygi and head towards Governors beach, checking out the shore as we go. We shall open up the sails, kill the engine and let the power of the wind carry us. Right after the Zygi port we shall pass the docking station of Vassiliko where large freight ships are docked for loading and unloading cargo. Passing Vassiliko the fish farms will be our next checkpoint, where usually sea turtles and dolfins show up. Right next to the farms our final destination will be Governors beach, where we shall drop anchor and relax before heading back. Sailboats are not Power boats, although they go majestically, they are slower, so although this may sound like a small trip in reality it will be more that enough.
Other things to note
Please note that sailing may not always be possible if the weather is bad or if i think that it might turn bad. The available dates i have in the calendar are based on latest weather forecast and i try to watch it as often as possible. Safety as well as a pleasant experience are my main goals.

Sailing and the sea in general has always been a passion of mine. Dreamed of having a sailboat and being a captain for as long as i can remember. A while back i finally sold most of my belongings, bought a sailboat which was a complete wreck and rebuilt it from scratch. Changed my profession completely and am now living on a sailboat. I work on it, upgrade it and maintain it so that it is always seaworthy and ready for new adventures. Have already finished my ASA Day Skipper license as well as other qualifications and am working within the marine industry so i am near, on and under the sea almost all the time. I try to be an example to others and treat the sea with the respect it deserves. Hopefully some of my love for the sea will be transferred to others as well.

Where you'll be

Anything along the way from the sea will seem new and interesting to you. Watching the shore pass by is a site of its own and even i enjoy revisiting the same spots over and over again. We shall pass the large commercial vessels being docked, the fishing farms and naturally will reach Governors beach itself, where we shall drop anchor.

Чудесная прогулка с друзьями. Деметрис рассказал нюансы мореходного дела, мы видели по пути черепах, поплавали в воде в красивом месте. Приятным бонусом была бутылка шампанского от Деметриса. Рекомендую в холодное время захватить с собой толстые носки, так как по яхте нужно ходить босиком/в носках. Спасибо!

Всем рекомендую данную прогулку,Деметрис профессионал в своём деле,можно много узнать про парусные яхты,прокатиться вдоль берега и искупаться в море. Мы до этого не катались под парусами,для нас это был незабываемый опыт.

Overall it was a great day out on the water. Small group made it personal and more comfortable. 10/10 would do again. The owner definitely has a passion for sailing. Experience was interactive and he gave lots of information about the island/area.

Было очень хорошо. Деметрис очень внимателен и заботлив, подробно рассказывает о своей яхте, море вокруг и своем яхтенном опыте, дает помогать с управлением. Русский для него - родной язык, а яхта - родной дом. За бортом видны головы черепах, которые всплывают подышать, но они далеко, лучше взять бинокль. Прогулки организуются только в хорошую погоду с небольшим ветром. Totally worth it. Demetris is really nice.

Demetris is a nice guy who likes to tell you about his boat and his adventures on the water. A fun way to discover Cyprus from the water. You also get sailing skills learned. Well worth it! Keep it up Demetris! 👍🏻

Nice morning sailing trip with a very knowledgeable captain. Given it is a sail boat you do not go very far (and pass a power plant type structure for a good chunk of the trip that isn't too aesthetically pleasing) but the captain is clearly very passionate abut sailing and enjoys teaching others to sail. This was generally a very nice experience.
