We had two wonderful day trips. I would highly recommend them. Our family enjoyed the villages we visited; shopping and resting in the tavernas. We enjoyed sightseeing on the boat and particularly enjoyed swimming at the swim stops on the way. The boat was clean, well equipped and we felt safe throughout all the activities. The crew are friendly and... More

This is not recommended for those who suffer with motion sickness! It says so in the brochure but if you have an over-zealous rep like we did then they may fail to mention this. The first part of the trip out to the shipwreck is choppy, choose wisely whereabouts you sit on the boat. The crew are fantastic when it... More

We had a great day out, there was a perfect mix of seeing local attractions and swim stops. The day and activities flowed beautifully, the crew were great and seemed very relaxed with people. They were knowledgable and had great fun with the kids and adults. The facilities were clean and they served cold drinks throughout (at a cost). This... More

I cannot recommend this company enough. Enjoyed a really great day trip to Ithaca which was great value at 40 Euros per person. Lunch is not included but on the second stop there were some lovely, reasonably priced beachfront tavernas to eat at. The plus point about this cruise is that the boat is crewed by 4 people and they... More

We did the trip from Skala/Poros to Fiskardo. We were the only people to get on at Poros and the boat was pretty full, but there was still plenty of room. Both swim stops were in amazing locations and we're a real highlight, there's a slide off the back of the boat and you can leap from the side of... More

Highly recommend the day trip along the Kefalonia coast. Fabulous views, two swim stops and the lunch stop was just beautiful with a great choice of restaurants. The underground lake is well worth the visit. Felt like a really full and fun day out. Great value for money.

The trip we booked to Fiscardo whilst on our holiday in Skala was by far the best day we had and a great experience. We even saw dolphins. It was well run with the crew on board all really friendly and informative. There was a couple of swim stops at the most beautiful places and would highly recommend you take... More

We cruised from Skala late afternoon to Ithaca and after dinner sailed back under the stars......WOW! Superbly commentated by Chris who took a lot of trouble to teach our youngsters about the stars as well as the whole boat, about the island. Drinks and facilities on board, an air conditioned interior where you can study the seabed via the glass... More
