Lovely concept, unfortunately if you get on the 'inside' bench of the 'sub' bit then all you can see is the people in the opposite 'hub' and the fish below. You may also get to glimpse across and see the amazing sight of 100's of fish that the 'outside' benches witness if someone moves to one side for you....Disappointed, very... More

We were recommended to do this trip by other guests in the same hotel as us. The trip costs €15 for 1 hour 25 minutes and is well worth the money. We left the harbour and travelled only a very short distance before seeing a huge loggerhead turtle that was swimming up very close to the windows of the submarine... More

Sorry to say, but I was very disappointed for Semi-submarine boat trip. We were spending a day in Agios Nikolaos. Day was warm and they said there's air conditioning in the boat. We were almost the first on the boat but were given the last seats, so both of us parent couldnt sit with our child. Down by the windows... More

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
