This is the best boat trip I have ever been on! We’ve been to kefalonia a few times and we have done this trip twice! The crew are friendly and helpful the food is lovely and the wine is tasty! The bar is very reasonably priced. The man who owns it? Captain? Is so funny during the karaoke we had the best time!

This was the most magical and quirky day of my life. This glass bottom boat is so unique but special. We were walking by heading to go see the turtles and get a taxi to a hotel beach (we were on a cruise stop). Capt. Makis saw us reading his sign and recruited us to come aboard. He assured us he was 'the best.' We had no idea what we were in for! We were taken to the most beautiful private beaches in perfect water. A marine biologist explained the ocean life as we sat looking in the bottom of the glass bottom boat. They had free kayaks and floats to use. They gave out clay mud for a mud bath on the beach. They give out watermelon. They do crazy kareokee. The drinks and food are really cheap. If you are on Kefalonia, you MUST take this trip for a fun, carefree, magical day.

Captain Makis is quite a character, and his two daughters are extemely helpful all during the boat tour. Beautiful views throughout the entire tour, reasonable food and beer prices, and of course, very interesting Karaoke on the way back to port.

Just been on the full day boat trip with Captain Makis. What a character. Captain and his crew are very informative when you are sailing by different places on your way to rabbit island for the BBQ. First we stopped by some fish farms, then saw some goats on the side of the cliff. And that's before you leave the harbour properly. As you set sail about 15 minutes in they turn the engines off and you get the chance to look through the glass bottom of the boat. Where you coast across some rocks and coral. You get too see all kinds of fish and other sea life. You then have a little stop on an idyllic looking beach for a quick swim, before heading over to rabbit island. Once the boat is anchored you are provided with snorkels and flippers, Makis then throws a couple of bottles of wine over board and get you to dive down. Only about 1.5 Metres deep though so not much diving. Then you have your choice of volley ball, messing around with giant inflatables, more snorkeling, and kayaking. The BBQ was amazing, accompanied with and amazing Greek salad. With wine or soft drinks if you prefer. Then a couple more hours of relaxing on the beach before a mud bath to make your skin feel amazing. Once all the fun is over its back on the boat with a very cheap bar, for karaoke. Most song were a little before my time but good fun none the less. Brilliant day for anyone.
