Throughout the season we offer a Private Day Trips on ‘Giulietta II’.....
Starting from and returning to Naoussa, on Paros**, these are Private Trips for up to 10 persons (plus the Skipper & 1 x Crew) which offer the opportunity to visit another island, returning the same day...
Or, perhaps a chance to swim from the boat and just ‘chill out’, or maybe a special trip for the youngsters - we can always also drop in on the water sports centre for a couple of hours!
Or, how about a trip all ‘Around the Island of Paros’, stopping to swim, take in a cold drink or two and calling into Piso Livadi for lunch; before going onto Anti-Paros and back to Naoussa Bay for a final swim and a sundowner?

How about visiting Sifnos? Ever been to Serifos?
Or, for a slightly longer day, Folegandros, or the unspoilt beauty of Iraklia and Schinoussa.... or swimming in the Blue Lagoon?
What about diving off the boat into some of the clearest water anywhere?
As an added bonus, the youngsters will love using the passerelle as a diving board, or maybe getting you to walk the plank instead!?
We can also tie in with the water sports companies in Naoussa Bay for few really special hours.
We can do half day trips as well!
Whatever your choice we will work with you to make your perfect day.
For Day Trips the Skipper, Mike Earl, is assisted by his very able Crew, Loukas, who is from Paros and has a wealth of knowledge about the islands.
For all trips we provide free beverages, water, soft drinks, beers and wine, but for lunch we generally like to be near a good restaurant, or taverna, where you can take your pick of the local specialities.
We try to make the Day Trips the best deal we can, so the motor yacht costs €620.00 Euro for the day, regardless of he number of guests and we only charge you for the miles travelled and the diesel used (read from the instruments). So if you go further, it costs more, but you know that you are only paying for what is actually used.
Unfortunately the EC no longer allows duty free diesel for small commercial vessels so diesel for us is the same as you would pay at the filling station. With rising oil prices we anticipate a price of €1.35 per litre in 2017 (subject to change).
‘Giulietta II’ is fuel efficient, but at her cruising speed she still consumes 7 litres of diesel per nautical mile, but this does include running the generator to keep the drinks and you cool, with fridges and the air conditioning.
To give you an actual example:-
To go ‘Around the Island of Paros’ calling at various places to eat and swim, or just chill out, from our experience, is approximately 50 nautical miles.
This equates to 50 x 7 x €1.35 = €472.50 of Diesel.
But don’t worry we will always give you a very accurate estimate in advance and warn you if you are going over the estimate by changing the itinerary. You can of course call us at any time for guidance on the cost of a particular trip, transfer, or charter.
One last word, on the weather....
The Cyclades are famous for having a breeze and sometimes a lot of wind...
If we think it’s too windy, or the sea is going to be too uncomfortable, we won’t carry you. If it’s at all possible we will try and arrange another day - we want you to enjoy the day, not to see it as an ordeal! For locally booked trips we ask for payment on the day, with a reservation fee as a deposit. If the weather really doesn’t play ball it won’t have cost you anything, but the deposit..... maybe next year?
** We can also arrange embarkation from nearby Naxos and Mykonos, but there will a repositiong charge for the addtional diesel miles.
Loukas and I hope to see you soon on ‘Giulietta II’, but if you have a question about Day Trips, or indeed longer charters, please do not hesitate to call, text, or email us:
