Definitely worth it. Captain Ben cruise is a wonderfull day spent around Antiparos with différents stops on awesome swimming/snorkeling areas. With barely open drinks and food. Definitely the best 50€ you can ever spend.

Probably not unless you stayed underneath virtually the whole time and didn’t get to experience each swimming hole or the beach. I mean it’s do-able but would be difficult I could imagine.
