This 75min trip was worth every cent, the wife and I saw lots of sea life and especially the Green Sea Turtle which swam by the glass a few times. Everyones dream to be that close up to a Turtle.

This is a brilliant experience, woodcuts with younger kids. The sea waters are very clear . The boat offers a brilliant view of the ocean bed and is amazing to see the rock formations on the ocean bed. Of course you see the fishes and the eels. People with kids are given a priority in seating. Try and catch a... More

We stumbled across this trip in While we were visiting Agios Nikolaos for the day. €15 each for adults and 3 tiers of reduced prices for kids which makes it a very inexpensive trip. We have been on loads of Glassbottom boat trips and although great this is a step up by a mile!! You all sit in air conditioned... More

I love to snorkel and swim but my husband is unable to do so. This was great for us both as it provided him the opportunity to see what I see when I'm off exploring the sea on my own and now he knows exactly why I brave the cooler water temperatures. We saw a variety of fish, several moray... More

Not really one for boat trips, I thought the submersible element would be claustrophobic, but was pretty pleasant. We saw loads of different fish including moray eel and a pufferfish which was fun. I'd recommend that you take a set on the side facing outside rather than inside the boat - you'll realise when you get on board; this will... More

We went on the Semi-Submarine trip on 27/07/14 at 3pm and I was disappointed as it didn't meet me expectations. The boat runs 3 times a day, and we went for the last trip (at 3pm). It sets off from the harbour, right in the square by all the shops/restaurants. You all get seated at the bottom of the boat... More

I'm not usually one for boat trips, but this was a very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. They top feed the fish so you're guaranteed to see at least something. On our trip out we were lucky enough to see some very interesting fish (of which I've forgot the name of now). Both me and my boyfriend... More

We really enjoyed this trip. You all get seated down in the glass bottom area first and are then told about all the fish you see (the guides all speak a number of different languages). For me this bit was a little too long and although you can go upstairs we had to climb past people to do this so... More

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
