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. We didn’t mean to cause you any discomfort… Actually, the morning that your trip was scheduled to take place we had an unexpected stormy weather with strong winds and rain pooring … At that time we WERE at the...

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.

This was my first time snorkeling, but with some good instruction from Freddy I was quickly comfortable under water. We took the classic tour which includes some stops along Theodorou island to look at the wildlife and historic sights from... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by hiring the boat for a morning to visit the island close to Chania. Lazarus, Freddy and George could not have been more helpful in tailoring the trip to our every need. We were collected from and returned to our hotel and experienced several "James Bond" moments as we headed towards and... More

We took the Scuba Adventure tour. It's a group tour, but there was only one other person on the trip with us. Our guide, Elise, was wonderful, as was the rest of the staff. We had plenty of time to snorkel. My husband had never been, and Elise was a great teacher. She showed us a lot of sea life... More

An excellent trip made interesting by the on board diver who retrieves species from the ocean floor for you to see and touch. We had good sightings of the wild goat ,falcon and also kingfisher. The water was clear and warm for swimming/snorkelling.
