The guys were great. Good boat driver. Drinks & snacks were good too. It seems the Agean Sea is really not good snorkeling, but the 3 swimming spots were nice. One was a cave& swimming into it was cool. They needed better snorkeling gear. Fins would have been nice. We didn't go far to find our swimming spots.
