    Kastellorizo blue grotto
    We went with Antonis water taxi from Kastellorizo hotel. He picked us up right out the front & made sure we had a great time in the blue grotto. He took photos for us & was lots of fun. Afterwards he dropped us at St George island & was exactly on time to pick us up for the return trip.

    Great trip to the blue cave from the harbour of Kastellorizo
    Highly recommend getting on Anthony's boat. He speaks english, explains all sorts about the island, cave etc and dropped us off at beach clubfor a couple of hours and then picked us up again at the agreed time. All for one fixed price which is the same as the other boat operators but some don't speak english so no explanation.

    An experience we won't forget, thank you Antonis, you are a true gentleman!
    Surreal experience for the whole family. We were recommended to use Antonis (red boat) for this tour and were not disappointed. He was very safety conscious at all times and did an excellent job of explaining what we were seeing as well as some of the island history. He was happy to amswere any questions we had equally well in English and Greek language. He was the perfect gentleman and tour guide, highly recommend to tour with Andonis.

Be careful! The blue cave is very beautiful, but the Boot Tour you choose is important for you to enjoy the cave. Do not choose Barbara & St. Georg Daily Cruises, which are close to the St. Georg Church of the island. It is very fast for you to get in and out of the blue cave by taking more customers than the boat's capacity (as there are too many people in the big boat). captain disrespectful and aggressive...

We arranged a trip with Captain Kostas for 4 of us, we arrived and found him very friendly and obliging. He pointed out various features on our journey & we entered the grotto & were the only people there. He pointed out interesting geological features with his spotlight & then we all went for a swim - it was magical. Captain Kostas took many photos for us. I can not recommend he and his boat more highly. He is a delight.

A short speed boat ride up the coast you find a small entrance to the blue cave. At first it just looks dark. Then your eyes start to adjust to the beautiful colour the sun brings. It's pricy to go but definitely worth it. My friend braved a swim in the chilly waters. We went with Antonis who was a safe driver, entertained us with his singing and gave us a few bits of information along the coastline.

On our day trip from Kas to Kastelorizo we were thankful to have been advised to pick up Captain Kostas Water taxi service to the Blue Grotto. He was very helpful in organising a second taxi to accommodate of group of 13. The trip into the Grotto was stunning and the captain put us ashore on the islet St George for a lovely stay on the sun terraces with excellent sea bathing and a lovely restaurant. He collected us at a prescribed time to return us to the harbour with plenty of time to catch our ferry back to Kas. A splendid day trip.

Two of my friends and I were told a water taxi was 10 euro a person, he charged us 50 and didn’t let us swim in the grotto. He was the first one available when we got off the ferry, and another taxi driver informed us that was entirely too much money and we needed to walk further than pay 50 euros. I would go with a different company.

Lovely but do not go with Kostas. We called him and asked him whether to go there in the next day as it was around 14.30 local time. He said that the weather is very good and that it is the same. We went there and it was impossible to enter the Cave by boat. He said that he could drop us off the next day early in the morning for free (actually we have paid the 15€ the previous day without seeing the Cave). We had the alarm at 7.30 and we went at our appointment at 08.20.. suddenly he said the other couple wanted a private tour due to Covid; fair enough. He suggested to call us back.. we are still waiting of that phone call. It is our mistake though, we felt from the very first moment it was better to pick a visit in the morning but we trusted the persistant calls of Mr Kostas that the weather is perfect for visiting the Cave.

We were lucky to find the best boat to take us there. Mr. Antonis made sure we were safe on the boat at all times and provided lots of information about the blue cave and the surrounding areas. The grotto itself was a magnificent place and diving into that paradise blue water felt wonderful. Water is deep and at the end of it there a small beach, where seals go to rest. One of the best experiences we ve had.

Booked 12pm trip to Blue cave with captain kostas, 'first one as you get of from Kas'.
Had drinks, turned up at 12, wanted to up price to 20 euros each instead of 10? Said private tour better as otherwise confusion???
Said we would wait for others, no show. Then saw him nabbing another couple into his boat for a trip and gesticulating for us to wait!
On seeing the boat leave, we abandoned the idea and went for lunch! Strange!!!

No words can describe how it feels to actually get into this cave. Even the process of entering is amazing as you have to lie down in order for the small boat to fit.

The blue color is both soothing and intense while swimming in these waters is definitely something to remember. I'd recommend to visit the cave in the morning.

I garantee you, one of the highlights of any stay in the Greek island of Kastellorizo/Megisti is to take a boat trip to visit a stunning sea cave that can only be reached from the sea. You can discover one of the most scenic and picturesque spots in this charming isle which could be loved by writers, painters, and even a Nat Geo photographer, under the guidance of Mr. Andonis, an island-dweller and the owner of Mandraki Paradise.

Smiling from among rolling hills and characteristic stones given to us as a gift from nature, "Blue Cave", awaits its visitors. Especially the reflection of the sun creates a mystical and an extraordinary atmosphere.

The blue-turquoise waters will mesmerize you!

I can say that I found out every shade of blue here.
