This was an excellent day out and a break from the usual breach routine (trip to Ithaka). Very well organised and felt safe - boat was in good condition and kept clean. Crew knowledgable and friendly. You set off at 9am from Sami and return at about 5pm. Seems like a long day but broken up with a couple of... More

I booked this trip only because of the very good rating and unfortunately it was a big mistake and disappointment. In fact it was a gift for friends' wedding anniversary and it was meant to be a special experience. We have all done other boat trips together elsewhere, including in Greece ( Milos with captain Yannis the best ever !!!)... More

We were picked up for free from our hotel by the cruise staff direct to their boat (make your own way back) which was a really nice touch. The whole day from 9.00 am until 5.45pm was an absolute delight! Two swim stops plus two hour and a held moorings at first Fiskardo Harbour (fab) and the second was the... More

Spent a very enjoyable day on this boat. We had a couple of swim stops and two village stops. The crew are very friendly and knowledgeable. There is a waterslide for the brave and the boat has a glass bottom.

Great day cruise to Ithaka. The crew were great and the boat was lovely and kept very clean. The cruise stopped at 2 points in Ithaka and also 2 stops for swimming. A great day out and excellent value. Thank you

Thank you so much for 2 amazing trips (Kefalonia coast & Ithaka) on our recent holiday. As per usual the crew were all fabulous - so friendly and totally professional. You are in very safe hands with them and their love of the job is clearly reflected in the care and attention given to their guests. We will be back... More

Stunning views and interesting commentary to keep you informed. Very peaceful journey, a couple of amazing places to swim and landed at... More

Wednesday - Zante Trip After having experienced a number of awful trips arranged through TUI (Thomson) we were a little apprehensive of this trip. However we were totally blown away - the trip was lovely and the staff onboard were great. We set off to shipwreck beach first where we were dropped off for a little while to explore the... More

Thanks for such a fabulous day - staff were all lovely and also a big thank you to little Isabel! We felt really welcome on the boat and particularly enjoyed the swim stop at mini myrtos beach - beautiful crystal clear water, it felt so secluded and amazing to swim to the beach from the boat, stunning!
