Used this company for two boat trips whilst staying in Kephalonia , i will start with the pro's . The trips are well organised in terms of locations of visits and swim stops . The views are beautiful and the crew are experienced enabling them to get you from destination to destination safely. The small bar on board is very... More

We went on a 6.5 hour day trip to Zante earlier today and we had the best time! We were 2 adults, a 12 year old and 2 teenagers and we all had so much fun! The scenery was absolutely beautiful and all the stops we made were perfectly timed, not too long or too short. The staff was so... More

We booked the trip to Ithaca and it was really excellent. The sea was calm, so the crossing was fine. The 2 stops in Ithaca (Vathi and Kioni) are very picturesque, with a few nice little restaurants and bars for some refreshments. The swimming stop was in a beautiful little bay, with the option of some beach time. Captain Vangeli... More

We booked a trip to Zante on my Husbands birthday and what a treat it was. Shortly after leaving Skala we were greeted by a pod of dolphins and encouraged by the Captain to take the wheel. Shipwreck Beach although very busy (August obviously being peak season) was breathtaking. I'd seen pictures many times before but nothing prepares you for... More

Really enjoyed the boat trip. Saw some lovely places and the crew were very knowledgeable and friendly. Drinks are reasonably priced on board. Do not eat at the taverna by the caves. It's a rip off and very busy. Find a nice place in the town.

Other people in our hotel recommended this wonderful company to us and we can see why. We cruised for a day to Ithaca. There was a pleasant number of people on board, a helpful and friendly crew who were really informative about the places. A swim stop on the way out and the way back kept my husband and daughter...

Visited at peak season just as about 5 coach loads of tourists arrived so unfortunately had to queue for 45mins. Worth the wait, the cave is incredible and the boatmen know their facts. Our guide spoke facts about the cave in several different languages too.

We were going to hire a car to go to the caves and fiskaro but the hotel suggested we take a cruise. This was a great relaxing way to see the coast and the sights . The cruise had multiple stops for swim and sightseeing especially to see the Melisani Cave and some of the seaside villages. Highly recommended.

The cruise launches from Skala, and since I was staying in Poros, the boat was pretty much full by the time I got aboard. There was nowhere to sit, and the cruise from Poros to Ithaca takes around an hour, so keep that in mind if you are boarding at Poros. The views (even from the lower deck) were spectacular,... More
