Welcome to Paros

Geologically speaking, Paros has long been a Greek star; white marble drawn from the island’s interior made the island prosperous from the Early Cycladic period onwards. Most famously, the Venus de Milo was carved from Parian marble, as was Napoleon’s tomb.

The smaller island of Antiparos, 1km southwest of Paros, is easily reached by car ferry or excursion boat. To Paros' east is Naxos, separated by an 8km channel.

Mykonos Catamaran Sailing Tour

Captain Michael, highly experienced skipper and owner of the catamarans, will welcome you in Ornos Bay, the starting point (a well sheltered bay south of Mykonos Town). After the traditional safety briefing, we hoist the sails up (we always prefer hoisting the sails rather than listening to the engines!) to enjoy an hour of a smooth and safe sailing on the unbelievable blue waters of the Aegean Sea . We reach first the south end of Delos and 20 minutes later the turquoise waters of Rhenia island. After a first relaxing, swimming, snorkelling stop in an unspoiled cove, we sail to another beautiful cove with crystal clear waters where we serve our delicious full meal freshly cooked on board by the chef/sailor! Based on fresh local ingredients, our 7 dishes menu includes salads, starters, grilled prawns, calamaris cooked in white wine sauce, meat and vegetables "saute" on balsamic vinegar... the best meal ever served on a boat in Mykonos! The open-bar is included (sodas, water, beer, white wine). After a last swim,  it will be time to sail back to Mykonos, enjoying a nice view of Paros and Naxos on the way. According to the weather, we can also do on request a third short stop in front of the site of Delos where you can take pictures of the archaeological site from the catamaran. If you wish, we can then hire an official guide able to explain you everything about the history and the mythology of Delos (on private tours only).  If it's too windy, enjoy an alternative itinerary where you sail along the south coast of Mykonos visiting some of the famous beaches of the island and a beautiful cove away from the crowds.  Everything is included in the rates except the transfer to Ornos Bay (we can arrange it at a very reasonable price with our partner who runs AC buses)

We usually do a nice barbecue with a fresh greek salad and some fresh fruits for dessert. Depending on the weather, we might change anchorage for dessert, just to explore another spot! If we are lucky enough to cross the path of dolphins, we will sail with them as much as we can, even if it means re-routing our trip for a few minutes. After lunch, we will start our return journey with an ultimate stop on the west coast of Naxos where we will have a last refreshing dive. We will be back to our base, between 6h00pm and 6h30pm.
