After a quick safety briefing we set the sails for Antiparos and Despotiko, where we will stop at the most beautiful bays and beaches our islands have to offer.

Where you'll be

We will be sailing from Parikia to Antiparos which will take about half an hour, sail along the island's shore and stop in various bays and caves before we head on to Despotiko where we will arrive in the afternoon. If we are lucky we will be accompanied by some dolphins. There are small caves to swim into and lots of fish to spot. Get ready to hear some interesting and funny stories about life in the Cyclades.

We had a great time with Akis, he was very friendly and talkative! He tailored the trip to our likes and dislikes and couldn’t be more friendly. He was always checking to make sure everyone was comfortable and happy and shared plenty of knowledge and stories of his many years at sea. He even managed to help us find some dolphins which really topped the trip off. A well worth trip to do if you find yourself in Paros.

We had a quite unique and remarkable journey with Capitan Akis on his beautiful sailboat, nice exchanges, he took us to some wonderful spots to swim and snorkeling. This was the top experience of our great 10 days in Paros. Therefore me and my family highly recommend you to take this adventure day with Akis!

A wonderful day out on Anargiros’s boat! We spent the whole day out travelling around the island & came home at sunset. Really beautiful experience, Anargiros was very friendly & happy to make our day as special as possible & he told us lots of stories ( which could be slightly hard to understand due to the language barrier) Highly recommend if you are looking for a laid back, fun day!

Recommended !! Akis was a superb host and the day sailing from one beautiful area of the Aegean to another was perfect. Akis gave us options so he could tailor the trip to what we wanted - in our case swim and snorkel in places we couldn’t have visited otherwise - but we could have moored at secluded beaches or other islands, gone fishing etc. Akis’s English is a little broken at some points but we soon got used to it and liked his stories. Felt it was very good value overall and that Akis really wants to ensure the happiness of his guests. Thank you again Akis 👍

Where do I even begin? This was an experience we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. The natural beauty of the cyclades did what only the islands of Greece can do in all its beauty. But the way Anargiros organised the journey is what made the day a genuine 11/10 experience. Having just arrived to Paros me and my girlfriend reached out to Anargiros to plan a private day trip on the sea with his boat. However, with storm ianos having just passed the islands we were unsure about the weather conditions, leading us to ask Anargiros which day he thought was best in the hope that his guess would be better than ours. With the precision of a trained meterologist, Anargiros was able to pick a day for us that turned out to be of excellent sailing condition - allowing for both blue skies and a gentle breeze so that we could put up full sail. Then the tour began. Anargiros constantly gave us options of what we wanted out of our trip, whilst also suggesting his recommendations and ”secret spots”. We felt a strong trust to Anargiros from the start, so we naturally told him to get us to wherever he would go. I can only assume that meant our trip got at least a bit better as his secret spots where incredible - private, colourful, quiet and with fantastic snorkeling. The tour followed with some tasty greek yoghurt for lunch and a last stop at a secret location just outside of Paros. It’s only a few spots of islands with an old chapel on top. Again, the scenery is beyond picturesque and the ”boat-bar” couldnt have opened at a more suitable time - enjoying a beer and a glass of wine in the sunset. Arriving back home, both me and my girlfriend felt soft like butter on the inside. As close to emotion as you can be. Anargiros spirituality and happiness had really touched us together with the beauty we had seen. It was a moment for reflection, and a reminder of how simple happiness can be. We will recommend this to everyone, and definitely come back. With warmest regards, Nils and Daniela
