Once in a lifetime experience. Such a good boat trip! We went to several beautiful spots to swim and the water was so clear and blue. I saw so many fish in the water. Met lots of cool people on the boat. Loved the local wine that was offered. And the homemade lunch was delicious! I would recommend this trip to everyone.

De plus, apéritif, repas et goûter copieux et excellents ! Malgré le fait que nous parlions très peu l’anglais, nous avons été très bien intégrés. Merci beaucoup!!!!

The BEST cruise I am almost OCD when it comes to vacation planning. Before I pick any vendor for any tour, I read all of their reviews. And even though Michael Zeppos leaves from Aliki Port, which is about 25-30 minutes from Naousa, I was convinced that they were the best option. And they did not disappoint. Yes, we did deviate from the itinerary on their website due to winds. But we still had an amazing time - and I feel like every one else on our cruise felt the same way. First of all, the crew was fantastic. Super nice, super hard working, and just amazing all around. The boat is comfortable and so clean. My husband and I opted to sit in the front of the boat for the entire day and it was amazing. The entire front section is padded so I was able to lay out all day. We were taken to amazing swim spots, where we both felt comfortable swimming with the provided noodles. And don't even get me started on the food. They legit cooked up a 3 course meal with a variety of appetizers, a main course of orzo and tuna, and dessert. They also fed us a cheese board earlier in the day as well as a fruit platter an hour or two after lunch. Wine and soft drinks were free flowing all day. We were all SO impressed that they actually cooked us a meal onboard. Later on, as we were on our way back to our hotel, our driver mentioned that Michael Zeppos might just be the best on the island. And I am inclined to agree.

Spectacular day on the sea in Paros! If you are staying in Paros you need to take a day cruise with Michael Zeppos! We had a wonderful day on the water cruising around Paros, stopping at some spectacular swimming spots and enjoying delicious authentic Greek food cooked on the boat and served with wine made by Michael Zeppos . It was a small group of all ages and nationalities, great conversations and fun! A highlight of our trip to Paros!!

Zeppos fir the best semi private cruise ever Zeppos cruise is absolute fantastic, I go on it every time I visit Paros as it’s a super whole day out at sea, with drinks and food. The captain and his mate Irene are super, the captain is great and would never take you to sea if the weather wasn’t safe enough to go. I highly recommend this trip, he also does a sunset cruise which I will do another year. Xxxx Miranda

AMAZING! My husband and I did this boat tour on our honeymoon in Paros and it was amazing! We were looking for a higher end tour that wasn't a bunch of boozy teenagers on a cramped boat. This was absolutely speculator, lots of room, food/booze and the people on the tour were a blast. Crew was so kind and fun. Probably the highlight of being in Paros. If you are thinking of doing this tour absolutely do it!

Consigliatissimo Abbiamo fatto una gita semi privata ed e’ stato tutto perfetto. Ottimi servizi, pranzo incredibile, location meravigliose. Il capitano è’ molto simpatico e affidabile. Selezione musicale super!

The most delicious meal you’ll have on the island.


“One of the best meals we had in Greece”, says Stevan.


“…the food was absolutely delicious: the best meal we had during our week in Greece.”, Jennie.


TripAdvisor travellers praise Michael Zeppos food experience! But, why?


We’ re Greeks! We love cooking, eating, feeding our guests, drinking wine, clinking the glass and shouting “yiá mas” (=cheers) every 3-5 minutes. 

And we’ re Parians! So…no frozen food on our watch! You’ re about to taste the real deal, the Parian gastronomy!

Fresh seafood, seasonal vegetables and fruits, regional mezédes, sweets, salads and main courses that you can’t find anywhere else! 

All ingredients comes from the sea or our garden.  Captain’s mother, Stavroula, prepare part of the menu with her secret family recipes and the rest is being prepared by us, in front of you.

Just imagine the smell of the fresh fried onion tickling your nose while swimming in the Aegean!

Wine is local & organic, from Moraitis winery.

Why choose a traditional wooden boat trip instead of other options?

Would you book a gondola in Venice or choose another water transport? The kaíki (wooden boat) is the gondola of the greek islands. The moment you hop into it you’ re becoming a part of it’s story. It’s not about speed or power. It’s about connecting with nature. You’re gonna love it!

Why do you depart from Aliki and not from Naoussa or Parikia?

We’ve tested a lot of itineraries over the past 11 years and we found that departing from Aliki gives you a precious extra time to spend in the actual cruise stops. Less time travelling at the open sea. More time swimming and sightseeing. It’s also the best way to avoid local winds during our way back so you don’t get sick.

Is this activity suitable for kids?

Kids love Michael Zeppos boat trips! They feel free, connected to nature, adventurous! The boat is safe for kids and the food is 100% organic and homemade. While the activity is safe even for newborns (if baby’s exposure in the sun is allowed), we’d advise you to book the Private Sunset Dinner Cruise if you are travelling with kids up to 3 years. Because 7 hours of sun and sea can easily overwhelm or sunstroke your little ones, even if there are at the shadow or under the tent. If that’s your case, you may want to check out our Private Sunset Dinner Cruise, by clicking here.

What should I bring with me in the boat?

We’ll provide you with everything you’ll need, but your personal items. This is a 7 hours sea sun activity so be sure you carry your hat and sunblock (Very very important if you don’t want to turn purple!)! 

You may also want to bring: swimming flippers, your book/kindle, your favourite music (usb or bluetooth), an action camera or a drone (!), medicines, or other personal and hygiene products.

Important! Please, bring your positive energy, your locura and that vacation feeling that only travellers have!

Can I book Michael Zeppos boat to go to Koufonissia or elsewhere?

No. Chartering the boat privately gives you the advantage to stay longer on the stops or even skip a stop or pass the whole time fishing for example in the areas of south Paros and Antiparos. But the travelling area of the boat is specific (and the most beautiful of all Cyclades!)

I’m not a huge sea fan / I’m not a great swimmer. Should I stay at the hotel?

Of course not! Michael Zeppos boat is large and comfortable, with a cozy couch and an awning for fresh shade. So, if you’re not a huge sea fan, you can still have fun with many ways! Bring your kindle and sunblock. Pillows and wine provided! 

If you hesitate to swim because you don’t trust your swimming skills, we’ve got your back! With a life vest and the floating equipment provided, you’re gonna feel safe and have fun like everyone else (if you want to, of course)!

A must-do Paros and Antiparos activity!

100% authentic, local & delicious experience!

7 hours of sea & sun, great food & real fun!
