What to expect
Find yourself on your private powerboat, resting on your soft towel, the boat slightly rocking, music playing, with a chilled cocktail at hand, after a day full of new images and sensations. Stepping barefoot on the sun warmed wooden floor of the boat, you feel the warmth flowing into your soul. You may decide to take the sea scooters for a ride to explore the magic seabed, or SUP away and find your inner peace in the serene bays. When you get hungry, you’ll find a #foodexperience snack waiting for you. If you are an adrenaline lover, wait until we ride off to the next destination and feel the speed. And if you can’t wait to share your day with your friends, you can post live on social! Going back home, the drone and action camera footage of your day that we’ll send you, will keep you wanting more!
01. Privacy & Hospitality
iloxenia (gr: φιλοξενία) is a word coming from ancient Greece, where Zeus - being the God of hospitality among others - dictated that one should always warmly welcome visitors and offer gifts to them before leaving. Our tours are always exclusively Private so that we can pamper all the needs of our guests in the best way. We want you to feel free and enjoy the tour only with your group. During check-in we salute you onboard with a gift: a welcome kit and fresh towels you can take home! Also, if you get cold later on, we provide windproof jackets. The captain will be your expert storyteller and local guide. He is a local who has travelled these seas a lot, and he will share with you all the tips, secret spots, and his favorite places.
Our boat tours are the first choice for family activities. We are kid friendly: special hosting services, child life vests, kid friendly sea toys and food choices made with care for children. Hostess can be provided to help with kids, at an extra cost. Also pets are allowed (see more about pets). See here how we will make your tour with children safe and enjoyable for all!
02. Digital Fun
e promise that you will be so amazed by the scenery that you will wish you had another pair of hands to take photos. But don't worry, we have you covered! We fly our drone to the most amazing spots and capture your most memorable moments from above. Also, an action camera is always at your disposal to take underwater photos of all the miracles you will discover. Also, there is music on board! We have our own breezy playlists, but you can bring yours, or connect your device to our system and enjoy. After the tour you will receive a complementary video of your tour edited by our partner videographer. All raw footage will be sent to you by email.

03. Sea Toys
ind again your inner child! For those who like to enjoy the sea to the maximum we have brought onboard quality sea toys you can play with and explore around. Snorkeling with a full-face mask and high quality fins above a magic sea world at Kleftiko or Poliegos is a must experience. At Gerakas beach you can also see the thermal waters in action, bubbling undersea. With the Sea Scooters you can control your own speed and feel like a dolphin going in and out of the water. And if you like to indulge in the serenity of the scenery, take the SUP and paddle away to mindfulness, while exploring caves near Tsigrado beach. All equipment is washed with soapy water and sanitized after each tour. Also there is sanitizing gel to clean it yourself it before use.
