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.

Demetris is a nice guy who likes to tell you about his boat and his adventures on the water. A fun way to discover Cyprus from the water. You also get sailing skills learned. Well worth it! Keep it up Demetris! 👍🏻

Nice morning sailing trip with a very knowledgeable captain. Given it is a sail boat you do not go very far (and pass a power plant type structure for a good chunk of the trip that isn't too aesthetically pleasing) but the captain is clearly very passionate abut sailing and enjoys teaching others to sail. This was generally a very nice experience.

Ich kann diesen Trip uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Demetris ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber und wir haben uns auf seinem Boot sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir waren mit 2 Kindern an Board und Demetris war sehr auf die Sicherheit bedacht. Er hat uns auch einiges übers Segeln und das Meer erzählt. Wir hatten sogar Glück und konnten 2 Meeresschildkröten beobachten. Der Ankerplatz war sehr schön und wir konnten bei klarem Wasser vom Boot aus baden. Wirklich herrlich. Dieser Trip war definitiv das Highlight unserer Zypern Reise und wird uns noch lange in Erinnerung bleiben.

Der Ausflug war sehr schön, der Kapitän war offen für Fragen und hat uns vieles erklärt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Wind zum Segeln hat gefehlt, aber es hat trotzdem Spaß gemacht. Gerne wieder, aber dann vielleicht bei echtem Segelwetter

Путешествие прошло отлично, нам все понравилось. Demetris замечательный рассказчик, мы узнали много нового о море и жизни на Кипре. Однозначно рекомендуем :)

It is something you won't get on a travel agency. Private trip with Demetris on his sailing boat makes you feel like a millionaire. He is also very kind and asking for help with sails if you want to feel more like a sailor. Highly recommended. If you read this comment don't hesitate any longer ;)
