Lovely friendly team, much cheaper than tour operator, no loud music, 2 stops for amazing deep water swims, nice stops at ports for lunch. Just a great relaxing day out.

Took the opportunity to visit the main 2 sites of Zakynthos including a stop in one of its pretty little ports...... whilst on holiday in.... Kefalonia. (This was a surprise - 2 holidays in one really) Great value too, cost us around 32 GBP each with the exchange rate. Very Safe Cruise Specialists who made us feel welcome from the... More

As we travelled with this company last year to ithaca which was lovely we decided to try the zante cruise. Too many swim stops and just felt we could have stopped elsewhere where there was more to see ie zante town maybe. I also think the cost should be slightly lower compared to the ithaca tour

We went on the trip to Ithaca. It was a really enjoyable day. The crew are so professional and friendly. We had one swim stop on the way there and one on the way back and then stopped at two different places on Ithaca. We had a lovely lunch in Kioni watching the boats surrounded by lovely scenery. We didn't... More

We decided to take a trip with captain vangeli based on the reviews on here and were not disappointed. The crew were great and very safety concious, they made the day very enjoyable. We took the trip to Zante which was €38 each which is very reasonable. The boat leaves Skala and from there you head to shipwreck beach, then... More

A great value for money trip. It was well organised and the crew were very attentive. Fiskardo was beautiful as were the Melissani caves . The trip included two swim stops. The currents were quite strong and therefore would not recommend this for less confident swimmers. I would recommend this over sitting on a hot coach for a day!

Absolutely brilliant. We paid €38 each and got massive value for money. We were straight on to the boat at skala beach for 9am. We had a swim stop where you can either jump off the boat or go down the slide which us so much fun. We then went up to fiskardo for an 80 minute stop. Beautiful up... More

Took family of five on two cruises, one to Ithaka and one to Fiskardo/Melissani. Boat was very full both times but crew coped well with the crowding. Beautiful days helped of course, but well-organised and relaxed crew made for great trips. If you have just a few days on Kefalonia, this is very pleasant way to see the coast and... More

It started in 9 a.m from skala to shipwreck in zante. we stayed at the deck of the ship. The panorama was very beautiful. we stayed for 30 minutes at shipwreck and then we went towards the blue caves. The Captian tried to go through them but it couldn't because the level of the water was a little bit high.... More

We took the trip up to Fiskardo and Melissani Lake. The prices are better then what you get offered from your rep and the trip was fantastic. The children had great fun and even got to drive the boat. They make you feel very welcome and they are very professional. The only thing I would say is take lunch with... More
