The Neso is one of the last original Hydra water taxis that is quick and nippier than most of the sea taxis you will find on the water around Hydra. Think of the Hydra sea taxi as being a gondola of Venice, they're the best way to get to the coves and villages along Hydra's coastline and further afield

In addition to the standard destinations such as Kamini, Mandraki, Vlychos and all the destinations that the water/sea taxis of Hydra offer, I also take groups to the natural beaches both on the island and on the mainland. So if you want a day out on a boat, please call me

If you want to visit one of the natural uncommercial beaches, such as Kaoumithi, Nisiza, Limnioniza or Green beaches of Hydra, I have plenty of ice boxes and space for you to bring your beach picnic. The shallow hull of Neso allows me to get right in close, there is a diving platform and it's easy to climb back on board after your swim.
