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.

Только что закончилось моя прогулка по морю. Что я могу сказать? Это было ЧУДЕСНО!!! Увлекательно! Познавательно! Впечатляюще! Неспешный ход яхты под парусом, сапфирового цвета море, дельфины, черепахи! Занимательные рассказы капитана, который, кстати, абсолютный профессионал своего дела! Я в полном восторге от прогулки! Если кто в раздумьях, даже не думайте. Отправляйтесь в прекрасное, пусть небольшое, но очень душевное путешествие по морю. Я счастлива!)

Demetris was a very nice guy, passionate about sailing. The trip was very good, we stopped at an excellent place where he let us swim and enjoy the clear and amazing waters. Sailing experience was excellent overall. Recommend to try!

This experience was amazing. I discovered a bit more of the sea, of its story and of life on a boat. I would definitely recommend it further.

The boat was reasonably stable, there's enough space for about 4 guests. Demetris was very detailed in explaining everything he did with the boat, which was an expected touch to the activity. He even showed us how to spot turtles in the open sea. Highly recommended.

The activity was very interesting and interactive, Demetris was very nice to explain us how does his sailing boat work and what rules are there to follow, along with showing us a beautiful spot in the sea and being overall a very pleasant host.
