This was one of the most fantastic trips we've ever done. Picked up from the hotel, dropped off at the Marina and on to the catamaran. The two man crew of Mike and Ari were great, getting us settled in, drinks on tap (alcoholic and non) and off we went. Perfect weather, a great chilled soundtrack playing and time to laze on deck. First stop for swimming was great. Tip, dive off the tip of the catamaran, it's brilliant and when you hit the water you realise how far you've just jumped! The water was clear, refreshing but so salty! You can snorkel but trying to dive past a couple of foot is nigh on impossible which was such a bizarre experience. Back on the boat, we stopped to have the most amazing delicious lunch prepared fresh on board, more drinks, more swimming, then an hour or two of pure sailing and relaxing. I never wanted to leave. A day to remember for years to come. I get sea sick easily, this was fine. Don't think, just book. It was expensive, but worth every single penny.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The driver that picked us up was prompt and fun, playing great music in the van. The boat was impeccable, the food was amazing and the stops were gorgeous. We got to jump in the water and swim/snorkle twice and it was stunning! Mike the captain was so fun and everything was great! A fun way to spend our anniversary!

Awesome experience. My guide, Eirini, was very personable and overall just a great guide. She showed me a roof top bar I probably never would have found on my own and the best gyro I had all trip. My only regret is doing this tour at the end of my trip so I couldn’t go back to the places she showed me.

amazing people. amazing food. complete relaxation. would recommend! a little flirty "captain" , but harmless

Very informative. Professional courteous timely driver
