My sister, myself and our two daughters had an amazing experience sailing in the Ionian Sea with Lesley and Nikos last June. None of us had sailed before and were not quite sure what to expect. However Lesley and Nikos were the best sailors/hosts. They know these islands so well and every day took us to another beautiful spot to swim and snorkel and eat an excellent lunch prepared by Lesley. Each evening we moored in a different bay with lovely little tavernas. We enjoyed the holiday so much that we have booked another week with them next year, and we are looking forward to it already.Penny Robinson and family, June 2012
Fun, funny and exciting. Ellie loved the beach with huge waves, Nikos was great fun and Lesley does great eggs.The Ewart Family, August 2011
Willaim, 11yrs, says “Extremely fun, the beaches are wonderful, Lesley and Nilos were awesome and the food was even better.”
Robbie, 13yrs, says “Exhilarating.”
Loren, 15yrs, says “Loved being able to take my camera to capture old Greece on film.”
Colin says “I like the days better than the nights and loved seeing all the small places in one week rather than staying in one place all week.” The food was way too much – be prepared to hide the scales when you return home. Oh boy can Lesley cook! She can make a great G&T. We would recommend this duo (Lesley and Nikos) to anyone.
Denys says “Thank you Lesley you gave me a rare week off from everthing. I came back relaxed and happy and wishing to go again.” Be prepared to take life at the boats pace and totally chill, to see old Greece that only sailing boats can get to.
…we booked a holiday to sail around the Greek Islands to celebrate one of the groups 50th birthday. This holiday was not booked on recommendation so we were abit apprehensive about what we had done. This all melted away as we were reassured soon after landing in Greeece, from the initial greeting to settling on the yacht.Andy Beaven and friends, August 2011
We were very impressed with all aspects of the holiday from Nikos finding us “gin clear waters” to swim in to knowing when “beer o’clock” was every day. Lesley made the holiday a very relaxing experience in all aspects. Lesley was wonderful at making the holiday very special and her skills seem effortless.
We have already recommended this holiday to friends knowing that they will not be disappointed with anything.
We had travelled from Canada to experience the same waters as Odysseus sailed on. Blue Marlin allowed us to discover private coves, secluded beaches and small out of the way villages which brought home how ancient these islands are. Our cabin was clean and comfortable with even a skylight above the bed to watch the stars at night. The incredible food and wine was only surpassed by the amazng atmosphere and our dedicated and knowledgable crew.Howard and Marie Levine, July 2011
If you want a no stress holiday of sailing, swimming, exploring and dreaming this is the vacation for you!
