Went on this 2 hour cruise with 5 other couples. We saw wild dolphins and we were let of at a beach to go schelling. The cruise director narrated with local history along the way. Worthwhile cruise!!

We greatly enjoyed our trip. We saw dolphins and spent a half hour on an island full of seashells. The trip tickets also include a discount at Yianni's Greek restaurant and the shop.
