We rented the apollon as two couples for the day to go from Paros to Naxos and explore for the day. The boat was stunning, clean and very large for our small group. The captain and first mate were very polite and took it easy during the wind and large waves. Boat is very stable, so we didn’t feel any seasickness afterwards. Team left us alone, but we could have used even more info about the islands. Lunch was delicious and plentiful. I paid for a full day 10:30 to 17:30 and would have loved for it to be even longer! What a way to explore Naxos and it’s beauty.
Just got back from this trip, the 2 crew members were fantastic! I'm gf and they bent over backwards to accommodate my dietary needs. The other guests onboard were all so friendly and that helped make a perfect day
My family of 7 travelled to Naxos in September 2019 and we have a great love of sailing. We had booked a private charter before departing on our trip. Upon arrival, the company we had booked with promptly canceled our charter on account of weather, without an offer to rebook at a different time when the weather improved. Desperate to find another option to get out on the water I walked into the Naxos Catamaran agency office in Naxos Town (port). There I met Katerina who was not only professional and knowledgeable, but also just the lovelist and kindest lady. She was honest with us about our options and took the time to understand what kind of sailing experience we were looking for. She made the necessary calls, kept in touch with me throughout that day and then found us a suitable boat through her network of providers. On very short noticed might I add! The process was smooth sailing for us and we felt well taken care of. The boat itself was perfect - we sailed on a comfortable 40 ft Lagoon catamaran which was is great condition (Katerina had advised us that is not always the case with many of the charter boats in Greece). Our crew were too fine gentleman - Dimitrios and Thasos - who made our trip delightful. They were experienced, helpful and really a pleasure to share the boat with. They knew all the best swimming and snorkelling spots and ensured that our needs were met for the kind of trip we wanted. I highly recommend their services, their boats and their staff.
It was a really good day to sail with strong wind and waves only on the way back. Crew is warmly welcoming and fun. Snacks and food cooked on board are enjoyable and diving location are good. definitely a nice experience
This was seriously the best day in Naxos. An entire day cruising Naxos to the south islands and admiring the coast line while getting spoiled with drinks and food on the beautiful catamaran. Stoping by different beaches and jumping in the clear blue waters was a great way to enjoy the day and cool down from the sun. Fantastic views, boat is immaculate and very comfortable for 17 people. I’m looking forward to going back and heading to other destinations on board of the best catamaran in Naxos. Thanks guys! You made our day unforgettable
We went on the day cruise as a family of 6 (3 adults, 17, 13 & 10) and all had a fab day! Vasilis and Paddy were great hosts and we were hesitant before booking as compared to other day trips it was slightly more expensive but the catamaran was lovely (although could benefit from some cushioned areas on the top part maybe). We were offered biscuits and coffees first thing, drinks all day including beer and wine and snacks along with a lovely lunch and fresh fruit, everything was delicious! Masks, snorkels and noddles all provided, easy access steps up and off the boat into the beautiful clear seas. We visited three gorgeous locations before heading home. Quite a bumpy ride coming home but it was really good fun although wet . The day couldn’t have been better plus we had a great group of other families and couples on board. I would highly recommend. Thank you again to the great crew x
My family and I, along with a group of other people had the most incredible full day at sea. The captain and chef onboard were both friendly, interactive, funny and informative and made a huge effort for everyone to feel comfortable and welcomed. There was plenty of space for everyone and more to lie down or sit, as well as an inside area and cabins where you could sit if you had enough sun. It was so nice to meet everyone and spend the whole day chatting and getting to know everyone. The food was incredible, decorative and delicious and there were snacks and drinks including beer and wine available all day. They also provided us with pool noodles, snorkels and goggles. Best experience we could have asked for, and the most amazing beaches and waters despite the burns we all got, it was all worth it. Thanks to the captains for the most incredible experience. 10/10 would definitely recommend.
We visited 3 great beaches where we could swim, snorkel or just enjoy the sun on the catamaran. It was a pity that we could not visit Ano Koufonissi due to the strong winds/weather. The 2 crew members took great care of us. Snacks, lunch, fruits, drinks (including wine) were provided. Getting to know and chatting with other friendly passengers from all over the world made the entire experience even more memorable. We highly recommend a day out with Apollon.
We had a great time on a day cruise at the beginning of August! Although we were a bit unlucky with the weather and therefore unable to travel to Koufonisia, Paros or even the South of Naxos, Vasilis (the skipper) took us to some beautiful spots in Naxos with crystal clear waters and amazing views. One might say that we could have gone to these places by car (fair point), BUT the experience of being on the catamaran, away from the crowds, with nice music, food and drinks is far more luxurious! It was only a few of us (8 guests) and we had plenty of space to move around the boat. Homemade food was cooked for us. Yes, it was vegetarian but it was delicious and I loved it! Fresh vegetables, local cheese, soft bread, and the smell of oregano was out of this world. Drinks were also offered (coffee/tea, water, wine, beer). One recommendation, just to make things a little bit more special, could be to offer a gin & tonic (or similar) at the last stop. I felt like a little cocktail at that time, preparing us for the sunset! The crew on board were very pleasant, friendly and chatty and they provided details at every stop (how deep was the water, where to swim etc). The timing was about right, departed at 9 am and returned at 6 pm. That was enough for us. The catamaran had a toilet, a cabin where we could change clothes and a shower on the deck with fresh water, which was great after a swim. Overall, this was a great experience. It might be more expensive than other boats but if you wa
Amazing day out at sea! Plenty of beautiful beaches and scenery. Great crew, made it very very fun. Food was fresh and relish too! Highly recommendable:)
We really had a great day on the catamaran, we enjoyed it a lot with our 2 sons of 15 and 17yrs. We saw the south coast of Naxos, really beautiful. Lunch was freshly cooked and absolutely fabulous! Tx
This sailing trip was a highlight of our Greece vacation! Our three boys (ages 15, 14 and 11) loved it! We went to Paros because of favorable winds. Three stops for swimming and jumping off the boat. Our captains were great and they also prepared a nice lunch between navigating to the various locations
My friend and I booked the 100euro (each) tour and it was well worth it! The boat only had about 10-12 people on it compared to other boat tours. We were provided with drinks, snacks, and lunch. It is equipped with 2 toilets and very spacious overall. The tour was from 0830-1730 and we stopped 3 times to swim. We visited Rena’s cave and other areas. The water was BEAUTIFUL and the boat crew was super friendly! Definitely recommend touring on the Apollon Boat!
Me and my friends had a great time sailing around the islands of Naxos, Paros, and Antiparos. We were on the boat with a few couples and a family. We stopped and snorkeled/swam in 4 different areas around the islands and got to see way more of the islands and beautiful scenery than I expected! We got a great lunch, snacks, and alcohol all day. Just book it! You wont regret it!
It’s been a nice cruise on the coast of Paros. The Catamaran was amazing and the skipper & troupe very nice with all of us. The tour we booked was for Koufonisia but apparently it was changed to Paros for the winds, but this is just our guess because the skipper didn’t mentioned the reason of change. Nevertheless, the tour was amazing, crystal clear water and nice beaches. The food was medium-range, even though we paid 100€ for the whole day including food. Rice and tomato, some naxian salad and fruits, nothing exciting but enough. We suggest it anyway, maybe just a little bit too expensive for what we got.
We had the most amazing day on the Apollon catamaran. Smooth sailing to 5 different stops to jump off and go for a swim. The captain and the chef prepared the most amazing snacks and lunch. The cruise was the highlight of our trip to Naxos and we would highly recommend booking.
We enjoyed our evening cruise with Vasilis and Patty as the captain and mate. We had a very relaxing evening on a beautiful catamaran. They served good wine and food. The crew were very accomodating!
Beautiful boat, Friendly crew, wonderful coast. What can you ask more? Only a private weekly cruise to see more islands.....
Took the route from Naxos to Paros and Antiparos. Everything was lovely, well organized. The crew was friendly and kind. They picked beautiful swim spots and we had ample time everywhere. Reasonably priced (we looked at a few to compare). Great way to have a taster of another island.... have a swim and relax on the water
This year we wanted to spend a day on a sailing boat to visit the small Cyclades. The captain and his chief were simply great. The food was good and enjoyed with people. I recommend this day trip on this wonderful catamaran without hesitation!
Great boat trip with a lovely bunch of people...and great music :) Had lots of time to swim and enjoy and a nice lunch with wine !! Thanks guys!
We are a family of 11 including 2 young babies and from start to finish communication about the trip with young children was great. There were cabins for us to use if needed. We did the full day trip visiting various islands around Naxos for snorkeling and swimming, my favorite stop was the Blue Lagoon, it was exactly as described, very blue and very clear, jumping from the boat into the blue sea was something all of us will remember. Snorkel masks and flippers were available on board but we took our own masks. The day was perfect and the crew cooked us a lovely lunch of pasta and fresh vegetables along with fresh bread, free drinks were also included along with snacks throughout the day. We were lucky enough to spot turtles on the trip and for us it was one of the highlights of our family holiday in Naxos. We are hoping to return one day and the catamaran would definitely be top of our list of repeat things to do. Many thanks for a great day, we hope to be back one day and do it all over again.
The catamaran took us to three swimming spots around Naxos, Paros and Antiparos. The water was gorgeous and the people we met were so much fun. There was a good variety of people and drinks were served. The lunch was pasta, so it wasn't really authentic greek, but there was a snack served of incredible fresh bread with local naxos tomato spread and tzaziki. We had such a good time relaxing on the boat and swimming. You really get good value for your money!
Our boat tour went to Paros, where we were able to walk around for a few hours, and we made stops to swim here and there, plus we enjoyed lunch and fabulous fruit tray. And wine! It was a wonderful, relaxing day. We enjoyed the company of the others on the boat, and taking in the beauty of Greece. The boat was led by two men (I`m sorry I didn`t get their names) who were great hosts, mostly by just letting us enjoy the day. I can`t recall lots of highlights to share, except that as the day was ending, I wanted it to go on longer. It was a lovely day!
Today my two friends and I boarded the Apollon catamaran and what a wonderful experience we had! The two men running the boat were knowledgeable and were true locals. We felt very safe and well taken care of. Food was good (appetizers, salad, pasta, and beautiful fruit presentation). Recommended for couples interested for a both relaxing and adventurous excursion. We swam, snorkeled, and rested. We would highly recommend this, and would happily do it again! xoxo
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our day on the catamaran thanks to Vasilis and Paddy. We felt safe and well looked after. Despite the wind not allowing for us to travel to other islands we had a fantastic time and stopped in four different areas along the coast of Naxos for swimming. We were given plenty of time to swim and were provided with snorkelling gear. The appetisers, lunch, fruit platter and wine/drinks included in the cost were delicious!
We took the route from Naxos to Koufonisi. We stopped at Rina`s caves on the way out and at Alyko on the way back. At every stop there were at least 30 minutes for swimming and exploring. On the way stunning landscapes of Naxos island remote rocky shores. In Koufonisi we stopped in a bay with crystal clear water and we had our lunch as well. Pasta with tuna and a very reach salad. All tasted great and quite big portions too. Capitan Vassilis and the crew were exceptional in giving information on the surroundings and they are very nice people to have around, extremely relaxed and funny. During the day there was also breakfast, an appetizer before lunch and also fruit in the afternoon. Drinks, coffe, beers, wine, you name it. An exceptional service! The boat is gorgeous, we are a couple and there were 19 people on board but still plenty of space to have your privacy and relax. If you are a nerd like me the captain will also fill you in with the technical details on how the boats sails, showing his true passion. Overall it was an amazing day, 100% satisfied. If you stop by Naxos I strongly recommend having a sail with these folks, you`ll love it.
I went on the 8 hour cruise to Paros and Antiparos. The catamaran boat tour took us to 3 swimming spots, Naoussa on Paros, and lunch at sea. It was the beat decision I made in Greece! Beautiful waters where you can lay on a net over them and relax in the breeze. Amazing uninhabited little islands that you pass full of birds. We had a lunch of tuna pasta, Greek salad (no cheese), a snack that I forgot the name of (tomatoes on bread with spices and cheese), and a lovely honeyed fruit platter. They had snorkeling masks on board that you can borrow. Plenty of beverages available the whole day. What an adventure!
Had a great time sailing. We visited 3 swimming spots, a cave and kofunisia, a small beautiful island to explore. We were served with great food- a nice snack to begin with, followed by lunch and a wonderfully decorated fruit platter at the end. Would highly recommend! Thanks for taking us and making us have a good time.:))
Our family really enjoyed this trip. Vasilis and Patty were the guides on our trip. We had a very relaxing trip on a beautiful catamaran. We visited three locations to swim, one being a cave we could snorkel in. Also visited a cute little town to explore the city. Vasilis was very informative and attentive to everyone's needs. Patty has been trained by a chef and made great food. We had breakfast, snack, lunch and a fruit snack for dessert. Great deal for a beautiful day sailing the Aegean Seas and being fed amazing food. Our family of 6 thanks you both!
The Tour started in the morning and lasted the whole day filled with relaxation, sunbathing, swimming and amazing (even beautiful) food. The boat is comfortable and has an electronic toilet The Captain and the cook were , informative and really caring (I got sea sick). Altogether totally worthy the price! Big recommendation!
It was one of the best experiences we had in naxos. The staff was really caring and the food was excellent. The locations and views were amazing. I highly recommend this trip!!
The boat is new and luxury. Feels like Kardashian for a day, lol. And Paddie make sure we`re well fed and keep asking if we want to have wine, drinks etc. He is an amazing chef, he doesn’t only serve food but care for the presentation just like 5 stars restaurants. We went to Koufonisi only and chartered a small boat to go to Pori from there. And it was beautiful!!! we went May 18, 2019 so it`s slow season and only 5 of us, we really appreciate it that they still sail. If you`re on the edge of going or not, you should, enjoy life, you only live once
We sailed with paddi and the other skipper and they were both wonderful! All of the food was delicious and so fresh. (They fed us a morning and afternoon snack plus lunch!) the trip was very smooth and the crew was extremely nice. We sailed to the island of Koufinisi and it was beautiful! I really recommend sailing with them! They also gave us great tips about Naxos and other islands
Excellent crew and the places we stopped were amazing. Loved the way all the food presented had a tropical theme. Would highly recommend anyone in Naxos to do the Apollon Catamaran day trip
Loved the day on the cat. The crew were fantastic. Very professional. So helpful. My wife and l had a charter business in Australia with a catamarn and l was impreseed how these guys ran the show. Nothing to much trouble. The Lagoon 40 was the perfect cat for the job and very clean. Had a great day and food was excellent. Saw a lot of the islands and bays. Would recommend this to anyone. Water was a bit fresh though. Thanks guys. Pete n Di Australia.
Fantastic day tour as a couple. The boat has plenty of room to move around and the two man crew were very friendly. We were in Naxos in mid-May when the tourist volume is still pretty low, so there were only 6 people on our tour which was great (typically there is up to 12 people). There are a few different routes the boat could take and they laid out a couple different options we could choose from. We along the Paros coastline and stopped at the golden beaches, blue lagoon - amazing water colour - and and little town where we had a n hour to walk around. We also were very lucky to spot a group of dolphins swinging beside our boat for a few minutes. It was amazing...but I don’t think this is a regular occurrence. The crew also made us an awesome spread of food throughout the trip. Coffee and cookies to start, snacks, delicious Greek lunch and then a fruit tray in the afternoon. Snorkelling gear is available on board, but there is isn’t much fish to see on the tour. My only criticism is that they didn’t actually raise the sails at any point on the tour. Just used the motor the whole time. Not sure if it was because the wind was so low or because it’s just easier for them to go no-sail. Regardless, I would certainly recommend this tour for your day in Naxos. Left at 8:30am and we’re back at the port by 5:30pm.
Great day with the two skippers on Apollon catamaran ! They decided to do the tour even if we were only 4, almost felt like a private tour. Even if the sea was cold, the skipper always had good ideas to make us discover nice places without swimming. Highly recommended !
I saw the yacht and walked over to ask about a trip, and they had room on the cruise, so I hopped aboard! They provided snorkel equipment and towels so we could swim into a great cave in Naxos, and the guide even lent me a pair of sunglasses since I had left mine in my hotel. There was a nice vegetarian pasta dish for lunch as well as salad, fruit, wine, and beer. They made me feel really welcome even though I didnt reserve in advance and I was able to meet other couples and singles traveling in Naxos. The boat carries at most 12.
We were very lucky to have had a sunny, warm, non-windy day! The boat is beautiful, spacious and was completely worth spending the entire day on. The crew made sure we were 100% comfortable and taken care of. Lunch was great and plenty. The areas we were taken to were stunning. I have NEVER see turquoise waters such as the ones we saw. I reccomend this day trip for anyone that loves being on the water and wants to see as much of the Greek Isles as possible.
We were lucky to have one of the first summer days at Naxos and booking the Apollon for a day cruise. Great experience both for the children and parents. The people on the boat served us all day drinks, nice lunch and beverages. We had an excellent tour from Naxos to Paros and stopped at different beautiful places for a swim. We recommend you to book Apollon for a nice day during your stay at Naxos!
an adventure with fantastic people that will be engraved in my memory and heart! with a lot of laughter with a lot of sea and sun !!
Try the apollon catamaran excursion, is the must unforgettable experience in Naxos. Vasilis and Theodosis will offer you a real experience visit a water cave, to swim in sea water with unbelievable colors! We had amazing day, all weather. Boats are new, offered snacks and lunch delicious,wine beer. Highly recommended.
Spent the day on this wonderful Catamaran and it will be something I remember forever. We cruised for a while then stopped and had the opportunity to swim in a couple of beautiful coves along the way to Koufonisia. We were able to hop off the boat and spend 2 beautiful hours there another gorgeous bay and beautiful authentic Greek restaurants. Basic and absolutely beautiful. Doing the same on the return trip to Naxos Harbour stopping off and swimming in the most beautiful spots. I was so sad that it came to an end. The crew were fantastic and I highly recommend the cruise. The most amazing way to spend a day
We absolutely loved the day trip. The catamaran is perfect, the food was good and the tour (south of Naxos) was very nice. Jumping in the blue sea directly from the boat is a great experience and we as well as our children love it. The skipper was friendly and took care for as. They were also very supportive and serviceoriented during the booking process. What could be better: Maybe some words about the places where we stop would have been interesting (eg the half-built-hotel or the beaches ...). Some more information on the food, we did not know if something will follow the starters (Bread with Tomato & Cheese) ;-) ... we were happy to get some additional pasta dish. But it was a surprise! And the food was okay, but an upgrade would be easy (eg Tzatziki + Bread, Greek Salad, Pasta). We had a great day and I deffinitely recommend Naxos Catamaran S/Y Apollon!
... and so we did because we were SO well taken care of - we didn`t have to lift a finger! Overall: Would I do this trip again? Absolutely! Would I recommend you to do this trip? Absolutely! And now to the details (pros and cons): Pros:- The captain and the other guy working on the boat were SO friendly like only Greek people can be friendly. They made the whole trip very nice and we got offered and served beverages like... all the time. - The group of clients. We were lucky (I guess) because we were only 8 clients on the boat so it felt very exclusive. This group was a mix of young and older couples and all from different countries - it seemed like everybody had the attitude of Let`s have the best day ever so the atmosphere was chilled and everybody talked to one another. Because we were so few it also meant the boat felt very spacious and we could sit and stand wherever we wanted - that`s of course also a big plus.- I assume we were lucky with the weather because we went all the way to Koufonisia and had a two hour stop here (the do like three different tripes and choose which one to go to depending on the weather that day). This cute little island is absolutely worth visiting and don`t forget to take a swim on the beach near the harbor before leaving! The beach is amazing there.
It was fantastic tour to koufonissi, Apollon catamaran was very comfortable and Captain Vasilis and his team was best host ever. You will be able to discover the best beaches during that tour. We had a faboulous day. You must go to this tour!
We booked this for our friend's birthday and had an incredible day. Luckily there were only 5 of us on the trip as it wasn`t booked up, so it it was very relaxed and felt like we had a private day out! We sailed to Paros because of wind conditions and stopped here for lunch which was stunning.While on the boat we were offered drinks regularly and got made some delicious snacks - thank you so much for your hospitality!
What a perfect day! Snacks, wine and beer on board, four swim spots, plus a beautiful stop for lunch in Paros. Father and son made us feel so welcome. Would recommend to anyone. Probably the best boat trip I’ve ever been on
We had a lovely day out around the islands. The boys looked after everyone and made sure we all had a good time. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Naxos

Our group loved this day! Just a small group on the boat of nine and we had plenty of room. The stops were great with time to swim or for snorkeling. They provided water and snacks which we enjoyed. We were dropped off at the cute village of Koufonisi for a couple hours to get lunch and walk around. There weren`t a lot of restaurants be jade it was early in the season but what we had was delicious and inexpensive. It was a day filled memories.
This boat , this crew, the food is highly recommended. A group of 4 adults with 2 children age :11 & 5 spent a day on the boat, we all had a great time. The cook and the captain told us about places we saw ,they want to give their guests the best experience and knowledge of Naxos We often stopped for swimming , relaxing and enjoying the view was also great. For lunch we had Fisherman`s pasta The best I have ever tasted, During the sailing the cook offered refreshments like fruits, cakes, bread with tomatoes,olive oil and cheese, made the childreen very happy Thank you for a fantastic day
I highly recommend spending a day or more on the water in Naxos on the Apollon. We were in Naxos in June and the catamaran was essentially brand new. Our hotel, Faros, booked a lovely sunset cruise for the 5 of us. Two adults and three teens. It was a rare cloudy evening, but we still had a marvelous time and only the 5 of us were on the catamaran! The crew were wonderful and prepared delicious fresh food for us. We promptly booked a second all day cruise for several days later which was simply fabulous! We met in the morning at the catamaran. We sailed to numerous sites, including a cave and nearby smaller islands. There were many opportunities to swim in the gorgeous Aegean sea. It is definitely a must to see the island from the water. We had more delicious food through out the day and there were approximately 15 people on the boat, besides the crew members. My teens had a great time jumping off the bow into the crystal clear sea.
We got going at eight o clock and had a bite of breakfast. The boat is fairly big, enough space to fit 20 people, and lots of space to relax on the top of the front of the boat. On our first stop we could borrow snorkelling things and jump off the edge of the boat! All great fun! We also had the opportunity to explore the rina caves which were amazing. The two men on the boat were lovely, (and great cooks as the pasta with squid was delicious!!). The other stops were also absolutely mesmerising and fun destinations. We finished our trip at around 6:00- 6:30. Everything was flawless. Highly recommended for families with tweens.*, * in the middle of teenage and younger children
My daughter and I spent the day on the Apollon. We saw some beautiful scenery and stopped to swim off the boat 3 or 4 times. Both the captain and 1st mate made sure everyone was taken care of throughout the day. The food was great as well. I would highly recommend this adventure. The boat is clean and new with lots of open space.
BEAUTIFUL boat - brand new! The crew was so nice and prepared the most delicious food for us during our day trip. This was the best experience we had during our whole time in Naxos. If you have one day free in your itinerary, I highly recommend getting to experience the Greek Islands this way. They took us to the most gorgeous spots. It was such a fun day and everyone on the boat seemed to have a wonderful time. I would do this again in an instant.
Absolutely stunning day and never thought that the day would have been so nice. The catamaran is high quality and very clean with loads of room to suntan on deck. Food was good, staff very friendly, swimming stops are great! It wasn`t cheap but it was good value for money! I`m so happy I chose a catamaran and not a single hulled boat as there was so much more room and much more stable.
Our day on Apollon was outstanding! It was a relaxed experience on a stable vessel (I get seasick easily and there was not a twinge from me) that takes no more than twenty people. Heaps of room to spread out, or engage with the other passengers, whichever you choose. The food was excellent and the price for the quality of service was very reasonable. We stopped at four beautiful beaches and there was time aplenty to enjoy a swim at each of them. Perhaps a little more commentary on where we were going, as we were travelling, would have been good, but with a multilingual set of passengers, perhaps that would have been tricky. A great day out, all the same. Highly recommended.
Nice food nice people and the most important... very safety boat... thnx for all guys see younext year with my friend...
All day excursion was excellent. The octopus at lunch, wine, beer, and snorkeling were great. The all day trip was from 0830 to 1830 and was well worth the price. The hospitality on board was outstanding. Definitely recommend this trip.
Booked on the Apollon catamaran cruise on the recommendation by our hotel and had an absolutely fabulous day cruising the beautiful waters of Naxos on this beautiful new catamaran. The crew on the Apollon were most welcoming and made sure everyone had a great time. The swimming spots were made in the most pristine clear water I have ever seen. Swimming into the cave and spotting bats was fun. Lunch cooked by staff was delicious and most plentiful, as were the snacks, fruit and drinks which was all included in the very reasonable cost. We began the cruise at 8:30am and returned at 7pm so be prepared for a long but most enjoyable day. Be sure to take a hat and plenty of sunscreen as most of your time will be spent on an open deck. Only thing missing on this great boat is a pink floating flamingo!!
