We visited yesterday as an off-the-cuff trip. This kind of trip is very much dependent on what one sees. We too paid €16 but saw an abundance of marine life including the famous and protected sea turtle. For me it was worth every penny of the fee just to see this majestic creature in it's natural habitat. There are of... More

Difficult to rate this boat trip, it is fairly expensive, costing 15€ but you can buy a dual ticket for this and the boat trip to Spinalonga which will give you small discount. The one and a half hour boat trip combines a coastal tour with the underwater experience. I hesitated between three or four stars as in our party... More

This is not to be missed if you are a lover of nature, we saw a wide variety of marine animals and it was very interesting to view the underwater landscape...

We really enjoyed the boat ride, the submarine part was fantastic, gives you a first hand view of the underwater world of the bay. Reccomended on your visit to Agis Nikolaus, was a nice break from the beach...try to grab a seat facing outwards down in the submarine bay, it's a bit better view than the inside seats.

I have to admit that we were disappointed by this boat trip. We looked on-line before we left and it had excellent reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. Firstly - the price seems expensive. previously reviews had stated it was cheap @ around 6Euro - well the price is now 15Euro per person. For the same price... More

Being in a semi submarine is pretty great for the first 15 minutes, there were quite a few fish on our trip, incl a huge group of barracuda which was great to see. They pack you in quite tightly to other people and if you're in a couple they make you sit back to back rather than next to each... More

The first part of the trip is nice with the underwater scenery. On the down side is that if you are seated so you look towards the middle of the ship you'll miss out a great deal of the experience due to the lack of light. The second part of the trip takes part up on deck where you are... More

my husband and I went on it whilst staying at the mirabello hotel. Booked at day trip office/ shop in aga nik town and saved €2 euros! Very good set up, toilets and vending machine on board! Seated down in boat base, the water is bath water clear even in harbour! Loads of different fish! Definitely worth it!

The trip lasts around an hour & a half & the first part is spent downstairs watching the sea life through underwater glass screens and is amazing to see all the fish and underwater environment & the second part is upstairs where they take you on a scenic tour along the coast of oh Ag Nik bay a great chance...
