Write a review. We were on the pirate ship at the end of May and had a lovely day. The ship wasn't overcrowded, so it was very relaxed. The trip took 8 hours with two stops at the blue lagoon and Robinson Beach. There you have the opportunity to swim or sunbathe for about an hour and a half. Passengers who don't want to/can't swim to the bays are taken to the beach by boat. The same goes for their luggage. The crew was well organised and in a great mood. There is a small meal around midday. It is sure to be a wonderful experience for children and adults.

We loved the kayaking trip! The area is very beautiful, and the guide Manolis is super nice and goes above and beyond, making sure everyone is feeling great. You get a waterproof phone case and a dry bag, snorkeling masks are also provided. I snorkeled at one of the stops and there was lots of fish. Just a wonderful experience!

This boat trip to the Blue Lagoon was amazing. The water was crystal clear and perfect for swimming. The traditional wooden boat was unique and made the trip special. Swimming and jumping off the boat was a lot of fun. I also enjoyed the fresh fruit and cold drinks. I highly recommend this trip to everyone!

It was all perfect as I imagined! The boat was super clean and new. We had an amazing time. The staff was kind and super helpful with everything. Everything went as we planed and even better. I defiantly recommend it,it was one of the bests tours I’ve ever done. Wonderful experience from Paros.

The tour and guide were spectacular! A wonderful, action packed day, visiting a super selection of beaches. Would strongly recommend!
