Seas The Moment is a family oriented business with years of sailing and off-shore experience. We offer high quality daily cruises and other services, based in the domain of Paros Island (Cyclades), along the Aegean waters.
The cruises take place in a one of a kind traditional vintage boat (kaiki), known as a "Schooner", originally built in 1928. The boat is named after the protector of the sailors, known as Agios Nicholaos (Saint Nicholas) and is the only one remaining in the Mediterranean waters. The boat has been in the ownership of Captains Nefeli and George for the past 30 years and it is strictly operated by them.
Agios Nicholaos was first renovated at the end of WW2 in 1948. An engine was installed in 1950, whilst to this day it still retains its original design and equipment. It has been officially registered as a museum by the Ministry of History and Culture of Greece. To this day and to the knowledge of the European Maritime Heritage, only 60 boats remain with only 10 of them being of the original, authentic design. Our own, Agios Nikolaos, is officially included in those 10 remaining and we have the pleasure to re-introduce it in the Aegean waters.
