  • The Rena takes 23 passengers and there were 16 of us plus 3 crew-Yannis (captain) and Anna and Akis. All wonderful people. We had a safety/information briefing by Yannis to start where he told us where we were going for the day. Our first stop was a beautiful small bay on Paros just past Naoussa harbour area for swimming, beverages-pop, water, red & white wine and tsipouro, and snacks-bread with soft cheese and dolmades. From here we went to the fishing village of Naoussa, not much distance away. It was gorgeous with the remnants of an old castle and lovely shops with narrow, very clean streets for us to wander. We then went to another swimming spot where almost everyone swam (May 5 and the water was still cold) and lunch was served -huge pieces of moussaka, Greek salad, French bread plus cakes for dessert. We were back by about 5 pm. and dropped off at the ferry dock. This was lovely as it does take time to moor the catamaran and it saved everyone the time spent waiting and watching. Advice-bring warm clothing for the trip back-this is especially important if you go swimming!
  • Awesome day on the water. The food was very tasty and the staff was very kind and accommodating. The weather/water was too cold to swim, but we still had an unbelievable time!
  • I could not be more disappointed with this trip: Me and my partner booked with them as we were staying in Naxos for several days and wanted to see the Small Cyclades (a group of small but beautiful islands next to Naxos). On the day of the trip, the captain gave us a safety briefing and then we departed. To our surprise, 1 hour later we were in front of the town of Naoussa (in a different island, Paros), opposite direction from The Small Cyclades. We asked the captain why we were not going to The Small Cyclades (as advertised, see attached picture), and the only answer he gave us was a passive/aggressive: "Don't you think you can also enjoy this trip?". No one told us about the route change before the trip, nor before departure during the safety briefing. This was extremely unprofessional. If we had known this in advance, we would have cancelled the trip. To make things worse, we had already been to Paros the previous year, including a boat trip around the island, (with Captain Ben, by the way. Have a look if you are in Paros, 10/10), so it felt like Groundhog Day. After a year planning, it was a day off of holiday completely wasted, all because misleading advertisements, procedures and a lack of proper briefing and communications. The captain knew this, as he offered us a 30% discount for the following day trip as an apology, which basically means we are paying a full ticket to waste one day of holidays each and 70% of a second to get the trip that we had originally paid for. Apart from this, there was no music on the boat (thankfully, another passenger brought a speaker) and the food and wine were "Mehhh" at best. We tried to make the most of the day, but it was the only bad experience in 10 days travelling around the area.
  • This was the highlight of our trip! Thomas and Mario were so nice and chill, and cooked a delicious lunch of Moussaka and Greek Salad. We had great appetizers at our first stop too, dip on bread and dolmas. We stopped at a few different beaches on the other side of Naxos and swam in the gorgeous water, relaxed on the beautiful boat, drank wine and beer (they had a huge supply). The boat is so big and very stable since it is a catamaran, no real seasickness issues. We had a lovely group of 6 people, felt not crowded at all. Felt like we were living our bougiest lives chilling on a yacht all day. Checking in was super easy too, it's right on the Naxos marina. Our only issue was booking through Viator, they didn't give us a way to confirm dietary restrictions. Contact the boat directly to confirm things with them is my advice.
  • Nice guys. Nice boat. Very civilised. Endless quality food and drink. Catamaran 'Rena' can absorb 20 guests without feeling crammed. Best of all you are not blasted with horrible tourist 'party boat' muzak. Just cool lounge music at background level in the saloon and aft cockpit, virtually nil on the side decks, roof pad, trampolines or forward cockpit. Very welcome and most unusual for a med boat trip!!
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this experience during our time in Naxos. Yiannis and Dimitri were excellent hosts, the snacks + food were a nice treat, and we had a great time at each of the stops. I was worried the day might feel too long - but instead, it went by too quickly! Would definitely recommend this.
  • Our first experience with Naxos yachting catamaran Rena was in 2020, when we enjoyed it so much that we went on the cruise 3 times in a week. In 2021 we chose to come back to Naxos because of Naxos yachting. We were planning to do the cruise every day for a week, but the wind made it possible only four times. The catamaran, the swimming and snorkelling spots, but mostly the skippers - Yannis and Dimitri - are incredible. The catamaran is new and spotless clean and you can see the crew’s care in the little details: a tiny potted olive tree or a pot with lovely smelling basil, the extra clean bathroom, the spotless lounge area, the sofas - everything really. However - what makes the cruise amazing are her skippers - Yannis and Dimitri. They know every single guest’s name, they care for everyone, and make sure that everything is perfect. Yannis chooses the day’s itinerary so that everyone enjoys it to the max, always selecting the route based on the weather and wind. Don’t get upset if the cruise is cancelled sometimes - it’s for the guests’ safety. The locations the cruise took us to are amazing - the most turquoise waters, rock jumping spots, snorkelling bays, sandy beaches and historic shipwrecks. The food and drinks are plenty and attentively served. And if you follow on our steps and fall in love with Naxos Yachting catamaran Rena’s cruises you might get a T-shirt or a cap that you will wear with pride! Thank you for the 4 lovely day-cruises this year! We can’t wait to be back! Yannis, Dimitri - all the best from us! You are fantastic! I&C
  • This was such a fun day trip! The whole crew was really lively and friendly. The highlight of the day of course was the cliff jumping bit. Yannis did a fantastic job motivating us to take the plunge. Had a fantastic time, would definitely recommend this.
  • I truly cannot pick a favorite part of the day. Yannis & Dimitris made sure that everyone’s needs were catered to at all times, gave great information on the areas we stopped in & overall just made the experience fun. The food was amazing, the drinks and snacks as well. There was always a shady spot if you needed it and sunny areas, too. If you are debating on booking this, do it! It was one of the best decisions we made while in Greece!!
  • A brilliant trip. We were looked after from start to finish. We stopped off at some great locations for swimming and exploring. Highly recommended.
  • I went on 2 different catamaran trips in Naxos and I was very disappointed with the other after having such a great experience with Yannis and Dimitri. The boat was excellent, it had more than just the trampolines for seating. There were also couches at the front of the boat and the back so no one was just sitting on plastic. There were two families one with a teenager and a 10 year old, another with 1 teenager. Several couples, I traveled alone, and also a group of friends in the 20s and 30s. Everyone had fun. We made several stops and Yannis explained the history and significance of each place we stopped. You could tell he loved these islands and enjoyed sharing them with travelers. They chummed the water to attract fish while we snorkeled, took us to climb up and dive off a rock, and gave us a good mix of activities, relaxing, and sailing. There was an afternoon snack on the first stop with stuffed grape leaves and bruschetta, a very nice lunch, and fruit on the way back. They had plenty of wine for everyone (and we were not light drinkers), tons of bottled water, sanitized snorkeling gear. Everything was delicious and they had prepared a special dish for one of the passengers with allergies. My only regret was not booking with them for both my days on the water.
  • We got delicious food throughout the trip. Even with the windy weather, it was amazing to see different locations. Our highlight was sitting in the front while the waves were rocking and getting a bit splashed. We didn’t drink any alcohol, but there was plenty available for those who desired it. We appreciated them looking out for responsible actions towards the environment (attention to trash/waste & respecting the sea). Snorkeling equipment was provided.
  • Very well organised experience. The whole thing was very polished and enjoyable. Giannis was our capitan and he was super nice, funny and knowledgeable. The stops for swimming and cliff diving were fabulous and the food and drinks were phenomenal. 100% recommended and 100% would doit again.
  • We had an great Day, with our funny and lovely Skippers. We are so happy, that we book this Tour to Parros. We saw Delphines, direct by the Boot. We had an amazing food an many to drink. This day is unforgatabel for us.
  • We had a fabulous time on the catamaran Rena with Captain Yiannis and Dimitris. They took us to some amazing spots off the south coast of Naxos, including a secluded nature reserve and a place for cliff diving. Yiannis even took all of those interested up the cliff to show them the safest places to dive. Our final stop was briefly right in front of the Naxos Portara for some photos before heading back into port. I think there were a total of 24 people on board, including the crew, and we never felt short of space. In terms of food and drink - we had snacks to start, followed by an awesome moussaka and salad for lunch. The beer and wine were truly all inclusive, along with water and soft drinks whenever you wanted them. We finished with trays of fresh fruit to round off the journey. Overall, we had a fantastic day, thanks to Yiannis and Dimitris. Definitely our best day out in Naxos so far!
  • Wonderful experience. Our favorite day in Naxos. The crew, Yannis and Dimitris are fantastic - funny, energetic, and knowledgeable. They truly make it a great experience.
  • Great way to spend a day in Naxos. Weather was a bit windy so water was choppy and made it harder for boat to stop easily. Crew was great - very solicitous and made everything nice. Fun group of passengers. We did spend a lot of time getting from one spot to another, but no one to blame for that. Would recommend cleaning out the snorkel gear after each use since another passenger took the one I had used and that seemed rather risky in light of Covid issues. Relaxing way to spend the day, just don’t expect lengthy stops or visits to other islands.
  • We had a wonderful time on this excursion. Mario and Thomas were great and very fun. It was very relaxing and the food was delicious. My only negative is that I thought it was a bit pricey compared to other boat excursions we did while in Greece.
  • Very nice staff and delicious food. It is absolutely to be recommended, with friends or with family!
  • Really friendly crew, comfortable ride on the catamaran. Places to sit and relax. The snorkeling was not impressive if you been to more fish filled coral reefs.
  • We took a day trip with Mario and Thomas. they were excellent, friendly, interactive, did the activities with us. The good: Solid Boat, well skippered. Decent Lunch (remember it is on a boat), good salad and moussake (standard). Beer decent, good wine. Nice sunny day. Lots of space to get out of the sun if you need it. Just Okay. We had hoped for a trip to some small private beaches and unique places but because there was no wind we had to motor everywhere. We did two beaches on naxos and one one paros. Not ideal but still on a boat. First beach, Santa maria was a nice but basic introduction. Good warm water. Second beach we all go clay masks for our skin. Quite fun and not a commerical place at all. the last beach was accessable easily by car, but a good place for jumping in water for younger kids. We really wanted the cave swimming and of course, ('m assuming that is weather dependent). I tried to book other trips but one was cancelled. So I give 5 stars for the crew and 3 stars for the basic, but not unique experience. Again. I know it is weather dependent. A I also recognize that many of these factors our out of their control. BTW, we had lovely people on our boat that made the experience very worth while.
  • Mario and Thomas were fantastic guides and took us to beautiful swimming spots. Lunch was great. Boat was clean and fun.
  • Our skipper Yannis and first mate Dimitris showed us a great time on our trip down the Naxos coast. Seeing the Naxos coast from that perspective gave us great insights on which beaches to visit during the rest of our trip. The catamaran itself is fairly new, and easily accommodated our mixed group of approximately 18 passengers. The smaller group size is especially important; during our trip, we encountered another tour which crammed about 40 onto a boat, which looked miserable. The food served onboard was delicious as well. I would definitely recommend this tour.
  • Brilliant day out with the family (4 children aged from 11-22) Relaxing and fun day. Great atmosphere
