About Us

Our Story

Inspired by Mr. Gonianakis Giannis our company was established in 1996 when we bought our first boat which was one of the few operating in Crete island offering sailing trips! Since then we have always been attentive to our clients’ requirements in order to provide them with the best services. Having more than 20 years experience in sailing cruises and nowadays operating with a brand new elegant sailing boat we provide an amazing range of exclusive sailing trips around Crete for all types of travelers. Whether travelling with friends, family or your significant other, "Avanti" promises an unforgettable experience with professionalism, excellence and outstanding value!
