The superstructure of this vessel is fairly conventional but underneath it has been adapted to provide an air conditioned glass sided viewing platform to see the marine life which is abundant. We saw a wide variety of fish including a puffer fish, conger eels , mullet and sea grass. The fish are encouraged to shoal by top feeding. There is... More

I don't usually like boat trips but this was very interesting and certainly different to the normal trip along the coast line! The guys that run it are so passionate about the sea life in the area and are happy to spend time pointing out the various species of fish and plant that you can see so clearly and close... More

Very nice trip giving an insight into the underwater world. You'll see a lot of fish, and learn quite a bit. The second part of the trip where there is a bit sightseeing, is not bad but not adding much value

We did this trip with two friends. We had a very interesting guide throughout the whole trip who kept us informed of what we were seeing. Saw lots of different fish. The boat was very clean and it was a wonderful way to while away an hour and a half. Definitely worth doing. The guide moved seamlessly between English, Dutch... More

Our holiday party all went aboard and had a very enjoyable hour and a half trip. Saw lots of different fish followed by a cruise around the bay. Sit on outer seats if you can as you will see more. Definitely worth doing !

We decided to go on the submarine after seeing it cruise past our hotel every day! So glad we decided to try it out! The guides were very knowledgable and informative. The boat was ship shape and well looked after. We spotted 3 loggerhead turtles which the captain went out of his way to manoeuvre the boat so everyone got... More

We are a family of 5: 2 adults and 3 girls ages: 11, 10 and 5. We were really looking forward to do this and we even took a whole day out of our 7 days on Crete, got on a bus and went to Agios Nikolaos to go on the semi-submarine. The warning signals were there. My email was... More

Decided to go on the yellow sub last minute and really enjoyed it,went with my partner and 12 year old daughter which she loved. About 1 hour 15mins on board, great opportunity to see the bottom of the sea through the lower deck area, they feed the fish so you can really get to see them up close. Very friendly... More

A great fun experience that is definitely worth the 15 euro fee - seeing the turtle was a particular highlight, and they turned the boat around to make sure both sides of the boat got to see him up close. Only slight grumble is that if you're unlucky enough to end up on the seats facing inwards, you won't see... More

We took a trip on the semi-submarine recently and thoroughly enjoyed it, It's the nearest thing you can get to the full Jacques Cousteau experience! We thoroughly enjoyed viewing the underwater scene through the glass sides of the catamaran and learnt a lot from the very knowledgeable crew members. All in all, a well- worthwhile way to spend a couple... More
