My wife and friends decided they wanted to go snorkelling while we were staying in Agia Marina, Crete. We looked on line for possible tours or for sites we could drive to. We were fortunate enough to come across the SeaStar cruise departing from Platanias. For 15 euros each we were taken to Theodorou Island (A Greek National Park protected... More

We booked a full day tour to Gramvousa a couple of weeks before we left for holiday to Creete. When we came to Chania we had bad weather for most of our 1 week holiday. It was heavy wind and high waves. We were in contact with a person from SeaStar Boats several times and rebooked the time to travel... More

To begin with we completed their online booking application and was told that a member of the team would be contact via email within 48 hours. This never happened. So we visited their stand in Platanias to book on the off-chance they had availability. They were very friendly and charming, but advised that we booked a trip on the Monday... More

Dear MICHEL The truth is that thinks did happened the way you described it, and we are deeply sorry for that.

Treated the family to a 2 hour private trip around Aghios Theodori.. Fantastic for spotting Kri Kri goats and Eleanoras Falcon.. Once on the other side of the island a guided snorkelling dive to see the fascinating sealife and then on to the WW2 German Juncker wreck... Really knowledgeable and friendly Captain and Diver... A really memorable treat..

We went in August on Sea Star boat. We found the advert on internet and the description with entertainment : life music, dancing , games sounded for us and kids very appealing. The staff I think got really bored doing their job with the entertainment program. Thought was no entertainment on board the whole 5 h '30 except a bored... More

Hello Iulia G, I am afraid you didn't get the right boat. We are located in Platanias and Chania, Crete and not Paphos. Our speciality is guided tours on board and at sea for our guests to discover marine species while snorkelling. We do not propose dancing, singing or games on board. We are sorry you had a bad experience... More

We were in Chania with a group and wanted to spend a special day celebrating a milestone birthday. We booked the half day to Theodorou Island as we had spent much time in Agia Marina and had looked on the island from afar. I would recommend the half day afternoon (when the winds are calm) as it feels like a... More

This tour is a must-do when visiting Platanias. We went with three adults and five quite small children and we all had a fantastic time. The crew was very competent, calm and fun and gave the children the courage to snorkel for their first time. It was adventure and safe at the same time. Excellent.
