There is more to Antiparos than the village and the cave. Unfortunately, most tourists never discover this, and so miss out on a great experience. In my opinion no stay in Antiparos is complete without a visit to St Georgios, 12 km from the port, lunch at Captain Pipinos at the water’s edge, and a boat trip with Captain SARGOS.

Captain SARGOS with his fast-going boat SARGOS can offer you an unforgettable trip, taking in a visit to the archeological site on Despotico, the cave of the Epitaphios ,which is such a tight fit for the boat you are sure it cannot possibly get through ,where you can swim from the boat, and then the Captain will leave you on a beautiful sandy beach on the deserted island of Despotico and return to get you at an agreed time. The boat trip takes around 2 hours, not counting time spent on the beach. You can call the Captain on +30 9673 79 48 76 or just turn up at St Georgios. You will find him on the boat or in the taverna. You cannot miss him, he is the one with the bandana round his head, looking like a pirate!

During High Season, the boat departs at 11 am and then every 2 hours until quite late. During Low Season, ie April, May, September and October, trips run on demand.

Vigdis is also a tourist guide on the island of Antiparos and can prepare a special package of accommodation and activities to suit you and your needs and wishes. It is called "Taylor Made Alternative Antiparos" and you can think of things like picnics on faraway beaches (by boat or on foot), trips to other islands, deep sea fishing and lots of other things.

If you visit Antiparos out of season, ie April, May, June, September and October, you will have a unique holiday experience. I will prepare a special package of accommodation and activities to suit you and your needs and wishes. I offer to This is some of what I can offer you:
• Accommodation in Dolphins Apartments, Mike's Place or a private villa (from simple rooms to a small apartment or a private villa)
• Lunchtime picknics or evening barbeques on faraway beaches, either by boat or on foot
• Deep sea fishing trips
• Olive oil making - We pick the olives, then we press them to make oil, and you get a bottle to take home (second part of October)
• Wine making - You help pick the grapes, then you take off your shoes and join in the stamping to make the wine (normally first week of September)
• Ouzo destilling - I can take you on an Ouzo destillery crawl, where we visit two or three different destilleries to watch the ouzo being made and join the locals in their all night partying, eating and drinking the ouzo straight from the tap! (second part of October)
• Walk the Byzantine walk in Paros, starting at Lefkes village, with a picknic, and followed by a visit to the Moraitis Winery, where you can buy Paros wine to take home.

I am Norwegian, but I have lived on Antiparos ,full time,for 22 years. Apart from Norwegian, I speak Greek, English, some German and a little French and Italian.
