We are Vasilis & Venetia and we love to share with people the amazing, even life-changing experience of being close up to free and wild dolphins!
Both having environmental related studies and truly enjoy being onboard, we became the owners of a traditional greek wooden boat in 2010 and started Eco cruising. It’s a family effort with the understanding and support of our two children Afrodite and Odysseus.
Our aim is to promote environmental awareness, by sharing our knowledge and passion for the marine environment during relaxing, pleasurable and educational cruises.
wih our 14m long, traditional, wooden “trehandiri” ‘Agios Sostis’, especially designed to accommodate comfortably 25 people. It is equipped with all safety and navigational equipment required by law.
*Vasilis is a marine biologist –environmentalist with a MSc on Coastal Zone Management, skipper, PADI diving and first aid instructor

With love, curiosity and respect for the amazing life this area hosts, we’ve cruised the Amvrakikos Gulf and Ionian Sea since 2010 and the journey goes on…
EVERY CRUISE A NEW EXPERIENCE
Our cruises are very different from a typical big ship cruise! You will travel as part of a small group of guests who want to live the majesty of the area and become part of it, not just zoom past it at 30 knots….
Onboard we serve traditional delicacies from local business and also handmade plates with fresh products from local bio-producers.
Eco cruising in collaboration with the Ionian Dolphin Project has committed to promote responsible viewing and prevent disturbance and harassment of wild dolphins, by following the Dolphin Smart guidelines.
In our cruises we inform our guests about Amvrakikos Wetlands National Park and its wildlife and also about related scientific projects, promoting environmental awareness.
take care of wildlife, in case of injured animals, providing the necessary first aid and ensuring their safe transfer to wildlife center, in collaboration with Amvrakikos Wetlands Management Body and Hellenic Wildlife Hospital (EKPAZ).
We try to support scientific research by collecting data and samples from dead marine mammals and reptiles, with the invaluable cooperation of the port authority.
We try to use as little paper as possible, and being smart about the paper we do use.
All cleaning-sanitation products we use onboard contain biodegradable ingredients and they are harmless to humans and the environment.
