Nick is the best!

We took the 3.5 hour boat tour on Sep.27, 2016. Nick is an excellent captain and host full of energy, humor and very friendly. He made our day! Thank you, Nick!

My wife and I jumped on Captain Nick's boat and we were not disappointed. Captain Nick is very friendly and you can tell he really loves what he does. First, he takes you to see an underwater German plane from WW2. Then, he takes the group to Kri Kri Island to swim and snorkel. Nick was gone for just a... More

Having read a few reviews I decided on going for the three & a half hour trip. What a good decision that was. From the moment we stepped on the boat it was obvious just how much Captain Nick enjoyed his job & made certain everyone had a good time. After an informative lap of Theodoroi Island with Nick pointing... More

First of all we came about 15 minutes later and all on the boat were waiting for us even though the boat should sail at 13:00 pm. Huge thanks Captain Nick!!!! We sailed to the two Islands, saw Kri kri-just one from 120 on the Island. Snorkeling was amazing experience with professional attitude what is very important. Nick is a... More

We chose this boat trip on the basis of other trip advisor reviews and can vouch for it being excellent! The boat is comfortable, yet clearly popular, you do about and hour and a half going around to see the plane wreck, and look for ekri goats. Then it's snorkelling time by a little cove. It's a nice trip, relaxed... More

Lot of companies offer the same trip so it was very hard for me to chose, especially that Captain Nick's trip was a bit more expensive than the others. So i checked Trip Advisor for help and he's got very good reviews, so i gave it a try. Everybody on the boat and on the ground was super-nice, helpful amd... More

Having experienced the longer trip I would definitely recommend this over the 1hr excursion as you certainly get your money's worth on the longer trip. That said, I'm sure the 1hr trip later in the day would be lovely to see the start of sunset. The 3.5hr journey started with a trip past an undersea wreck sight which could be... More

Captain Nick and his entire staff are amazing. This is a guy who loves people and he loves sharing his world with guests. I've never been on a glass bottom boat, which I've always thought was a bit silly...but the trip is not about the boat. It's about getting on and (in) the water...playing, exploring and soaking in this magical... More
