My husband and I and another couple sailed with Ricardo and his off sider around the Islands out of Rhode Is last year. What a wonderful time and experience we had. Ricardo was safety first in every way. Comfortable and beautiful boat well maintained and top condition. Everything was supplied food, drink, entertainment, cooking lessons if wanted. He was a very cautious sailor when sailing around islands. We never felt in any danger. He would change his course every day due to the wind conditions. We went to Islands with no inhabitants, swam every day. Some islands we hired a car and went exploring for the day with Ricardos advise. I would recommend Magic sailing and travel again with him if back in Greece. He is very knowledgeable and a great cook as well.

We were a group of 2 couples from Australia. Our holiday consisted of 7days and nights on Magic. We visited the islands of Symi,Nisyros, Halki and Alimnia .Riccardo and his little side kick Andreas were absolutely fantastic. They made use feel very comfortable and gave us may laughs. Riccardo is an excellent captain ,extremely careful and keeps his yacht in top condition. It was 65feet and had heaps of space. We had breakfast, lunch prepared by Riccardo ( he is an great cook) and evening drinks supplied. The swimming off the boat at every opportunity was only one of the highlights. We were able to explore the islands and enjoyed dinner in the many cute little towns. Riccardo was very flexible with our itinerary and gave us a life’s experience. Thank you very much Riccardo, his mate Andreas and the lovely yacht MAGIC

Riccardo is a very careful and safe captain with great respect for the sea and love for his boat. He always consulted with the four of us regarding daily sailing options and explained activities in the various islands visited - Nisyros, Alimnia, Halki, Symi. Andreas was his delightful and interesting crewman. We hired a car on a couple of days to explore the islands. Swimming in the superb clear turquoise water was a daily ritual. Breakfast was delicious with beautiful Greek yogurt, fruit, cereals and eggs. Lunch was a highlight of the day as Riccardo is an excellent cook! One day we had ceviche made with tuna line caught that morning - a pretty special meal. Always local wines and beers to accompany. Evening drinks served on deck in the evening cool were very enjoyable. Riccardo always had a recommendation as to where we should eat dinner. The we’re lots of laughs over the week. It was a really happy time. Thank you Riccardo and Andrea. Highly recommended!!!!

We spent a beautiful week on this really nice sailboat, clean and equipped with all that is needed for this type of vacation . Riccardo our captain was wonderful, friendly and attentive to all our needs. Took us along sailing to see many beautiful places . The food was also very good and it was fantastic to have the opportunity to dine out every evening on a different greek island. We are looking forward to having another wonderful vacation on Magic again soon!!!

The week spent on "Magic" with Riccardo and Michele was FABULOUS. We had a great time! Their hospitality and professionalism together with their friendliness created a perfect combination and quickly made us feel at ease. We are very demanding when it comes to our vacation and Riccardo certainly met our needs and expectations. When we were told that our stay was on a half-board basis, never would we have imagined to be served an amazing breakfast with homemade jams, fresh bread, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit salad, typical Greek yoghurt, cereals, coffee, tea, milk and many other delights. Lunch was simply marvelous! Riccardo who is an outstanding Captain is also an exceptional chef and varied the menu every day, from pasta to fish, salads and much more. Our children were spoiled all week with special attention in providing them with healthy snacks and we were spoiled as well with appetizers and after dinners spent with Michele playing his guitar and singing all together. We enjoyed staying in the “presidential” cabin equipped with every comfort and cleaned on a daily basis. I couldn’t believe we also had air-conditioning! However, it was cool enough during the night which allowed us to keep it off and take advantage of the sea breeze. Riccardo and Michele were discrete but, at the same time, social and of pleasant company. This made us feel as part of the crew and not simply “customers”. Michele was absolutely amazing! He kindly accompanied us with the dinghy to the various beaches or to visit nearby islands. We have travelled for years and I strongly believe that what makes the difference between similar accommodations is “attention to detail”. Those professionals who give special attention to the details are those who are way ahead of the others and are out of the common. Thank you Riccardo and Michele for making this sailing week a “Magic” vacation. We look forward to visiting more beautiful places with you next summer.
