Somewhere in between Scorpions and Queen. All routes are scheduled based on the weather. In case of an unsuitable weather, you’ll be notified by us.

As my grandmother would say, everything is okay, except for the beans were they’re not properly cooked. Captain Spiros has cared for those fairly swimmers and has lifesavers for their convenience.

Now we’re talking! Captain Spiros is pro human communication so all bookings are done via telephone ( +306974022079).
-How many days in advance should I book the tour?
Since every route is weather dependable, each day we only book for the next day’s schedule.
-Are pets allowed?
We are sorry to let you know that your beloved pets will have to stay behind and happily shake their tails when they see you return.
-Are there any trips to Elafonisos?
Scheduled, no. Large companies of people, groups and the rest of the romantic teams will have to call for further details and agreements.

I am going to quote my nanna again and say that “Everything is possible, my child”. Group bookings can be made upon request.
-Are there any routes to the island’s beaches?
With good will, anything can happen. In any case, every other request for a sea excursion besides Hytra is made upon agreement.
