What people are saying about Pounta

Boats organised by other companies were being boarded by their clients at the same time and our boat was more spacious, everyone had space to lie down and relax… not sure I would have enjoyed the trip otherwise. Food was great, being a vegetarian I was served an assortment of grilled veg for the main lunch which was lovely. Plenty snacks and fruit in between so never got hungry. Swimming stops were amazing with clear water. Staff were excellent and friendly. I booked an hour before the boat was due to depart, glad I did.. overall a great day.

What a wonderful boat tour. small group of 13 people. Plenty of food and drinks including a light breakfast snack and coffee upon boarding, fruit layer on and a wonderful boat grilled fish meal at our second stop. Swim in the beautiful Aegean Sea, travel to unique coastal locations. Definitely well worth the money. We would definitely do this again when in Paros. Highly recommend!

We had the best day with Kostas and his partner (unfortunately I didn’t get her name). The coffee, snacks and lunch, our swim stops and sail around Antiparos were all fantastic. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Kostos, his Dad and the crew were really friendly. The food was excellent and the ride was amazing. We stopped at 4 different places for a swim and had lunch at one of them. This boat ride was worth the money!!! 😊

A wonderful day with a great crew and interesting participants from all over the world. We were happy to be on board.
