We booked an excursion that included the ferry but we didn`t realise we`d be with 1,000 other passengers. Not a problem on the ship but the beach was very busy when we all arrived at the same time. The ship was well organised with plenty...More

We drove to Kissamos and got there a good two hours before boarding and good thing too because the car park filled up very quickly - and this was late September. This is a review of the cruise itself - not the company. We thought...More

It is a casual, fun-in-the sun excursion on a crowded boat, so don't go expecting a luxury cruise. The boat is quite basic but it is kept very clean. Staff are friendly enough, the bar service is fast and the food is adequate. The scenery...More

Ocean was not good, our boat was small and just one bar was working. Few toilets for 300 people feeling sick, all was dirty in few minutes. We arrived to balos really sick, uncomfortable and dirty, no support at all from the service, not recommended...More

I read the horrible views and debated about booking this but really glad I did. From other reviews they said book the 12:30 ship instead of the 10:30/10:40 ship. We arrived 30 mins ahead of time and got our ticket and we departed a couple...More

We went on a Sunday to Gramvousa and Bali’s. The boat was quite full - it’s worth getting there early so you can secure a place on the boat in the shade; the lower cabin in the middle of the boat has tables and benches...More

Beautiful ferry cruise to Gramvousa and Balos. Ample amount of time in each location. We chose to climb up the mountain to see the castle at Gramvousa, and enjoy the beach and swimming in Balos. Very well organized. The food and drinks were delicious as...More
