Lonely planet advised to go past the st Nicholas where you normallygo on the trip to shipwreck bay. They advised to go 3 k on following the signs to lighthouse and take a tour from there. What great advise! The cost per person was 15 euros for a three hour trip. The tour is divided into two parts, a small boat to see the blue caves and a larger boat to go down to shipwreck which is a reasonable way down the coast. This tour is less crowded, on our boat were three groups and this made it very comfortable. We stopped and swam in the blue caves, we also stopped on our way back from the shipwreck into a little bay where we were the only boat in the batty. Shipwreck is an amazing beach, but a bit like a boat car park that gets busier as you approach midday. The trip was worth every cent. Driver was great and knowledgable of the waterways. The trip was fantastic. Boats were modern and had all the safety equipment on them. The wind came up in the pm and the currents became a lot stronger.

We visited Zakynthos in early April at the end of the low season when most tourist activities where not running. Aware that a trip to the caves and shipwreck beach were weather dependant we contacted Potamitis Boat trips in advance to see if they could take is out. We spoke to the amazing and very patient Yianna who suggested we wait a few days when the weather conditions were due to improve and call again before we set off on the hour drive it would take to get there. On our last day on the island we got the green light from Yianna! The boat is small, accommodates about 10 people and had a glass bottom. Going in the low season has its perks, there where only 5 of us on this voyage. The trip was about 3 hours, the boat went into several of the blue caves, where you can also swim. We spent 40 minutes on shipwreck beach which is breathtaking! The water was still very cold but managed to brave it and took a quick dip. The captain was very smiley and spoke reasonable English. He was happy to answer our questions and very good with our 8 year old daughter. He made her day by letting her drive the boat! The trip is normally €15 pp but you will need to pay more in the low season when they can't fill the boat. For the three of us we paid €50 and left a €5, well earn't tip. Theses tours departs 3km north St Nicholas - follow the signs for the lighthouse, take a left at the Faros Taverna and park when you reach windmill. Worth visiting this spot even if you don't go on the boat, it has amazing views. It's a very steep walk down to the jetty, there are hand rails and paved steps but would not be suitable for those with limited mobility. I recommend this trip and this company, they're fantastic!

We were informed about the group excursion to the caves for about €40 per person, BUT!! We rented a car for about €30, went straightly to the caves by the map and saw a cute tent with a lady managing trips! Asked about the time, can you imagine what she did?! Called for the captain fishing in the sea in a moment! We payed €9 for 2! And had an own captain who made a nice trip showing all the caves, took lots of foto, got some tips and it was forgeous!! No 2floored overcrowded boats with children! Just you, captain and the gorgeous sea!! The windmills are like 500 meters from that, if I'm not mistaken, anyway its close!!
Up to you paying hundreed euros for a couple, waking up at 7 a.m., going on crowded bus and then boat, or managing a trip by yourself, keeping some money and really enjoy!!!

After the lovely drive we went in to the taverna just before the windmill. We were made very welcome and the food Lovely. We then went on the boat trip to the caves. It was the best trip I have had to the caves and half the price of the others. I have been to the caves before.
