"When you find somewhere like this there’s a huge temptation to keep it quiet."

"Having done Learn to Sail last year we're just back from Sea Gek's flotilla holiday and missing it already. Matt and Steve were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble, we had fab families on the other boats and great destinations each day. Boat was the perfect size for us, and we loved that it was a smaller group than most of the other charters. Would highly recommend!"
"Shirley Mat & team kefalonia, have rare skill in inspiring confidence, whilst being professional yet friendly. Awesome Many thanks see you soon"
"My husband and I had a week learn to sail holiday in Kefalonia, first week in May and it was fabulous. 5* in every way. Shirley our instructor was a complete, absolute superstar and converted me - a reluctant attendee on the holiday to a total convert who is know in agreement with my husband to buying a boat. Shirley was approachable, friendly, but also extremely professional in teaching us how to sail - with my husband thanks to her excellent teaching gaining his ICC qualification. The holiday was so enjoyable we have booked to go back in August on the flotilla Julie"
"Just had a fantastic week with Sea Trek. We shared a Bavaria 36 (Sandpiper) with four good friends (who were still good friends at the end of the week!). Brilliant tuition - Richard was capable, calm, knowledgeable and facilitative of success - a great teacher. Debbie and her team were so helpful - ironing out wrinkles and helping with our onward travel. Lixouri bay is a great, sheltered place to train and the tiny marina is not at all daunting. We are already planning a flotilla holiday with Sea Trek next year. Highly recommended"
"Thank you Sea Trek for introducing us to sailing! We have had a fantastic week learning to sail with you and we are very grateful to Richard for both his knowledge and his patience. Two years ago I said no when my husband suggested a learn to sail holiday as I have never been confident around water even though I can swim reasonably well. But I am very pleased he persuaded me to give it a go, even though I was shaking like a leaf the first day! Along with our two teenage sons, we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My first swim whilst anchored in a bay I was attached to a fender, my last time I managed to swim to shore and back! And the excitement of reaching 5.2 knots completely tipping to one side was amazing when we were sailing on our own without the instructor. We now have 2 qualified skippers and 2 competent crew! I would highly recommend it to anyone who has had doubts and I can't wait to do it again. Now we are starting our second week in the beach club."
