Dolphin Biology People: Kostas

Konstantinos (Kostas) Papalexis – here portrayed with Silvia in front of his Galaxidi shop – is a friend who helps us solve the logistical problems we face on an almost daily basis.

Recently, as our usual mooring place was taken by some other guy (with whom we did not want to argue), Kostas helped us find the perfect mooring spot for our inflatable, just besides his own boat. He even dove in still-cold waters to make sure the anchoring holds.

Kostas owns the bakery situated in the main square of Galaxidi, where he delivers bread, pastries and pitas. He also runs a well-equipped nautical shop offering services to divers and sailors. Additionally, Kostas co-manages with wife Chrisoula two of the best hotels in town: Hotel Ganimede and Hotel Miramare.

Over the years, Kostas has become a key collaborator and a friend we can trust whenever we are desperately looking for help – or when we simply feel like having ouzo mezedes in good company.
