“great day out”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

well worth the money of 35 euros each a whole day cruise with swim stops in beautiful bays and pretty harbours to stop and shop and eat in.

“A really good way to explore”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The staff are very experienced and friendly. We went on the Zante cruise. The blue caves and shipwreck cove are absolutely beautiful. It was pretty rough on the approach to these howevefr so if you are susceptible to seasickness you may want to take some tablets first : )

“Great Trip!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We booked two trips in September, firstly a trip to Zante and visited the shipwreck and blue caves, with swim stops. Then booked 15 people on the Kefalonia coast cruise which took us to Fiscardo and to Messilni Lake, with two swim stops. Very good trip, enjoyed by all. Clean boat and very friendly staff with commentary on the areas and places of interest. Well worth it!!

“A Lovely End to Our Holiday!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were set to fly out of Kefalonia on 5th September, and as a final treat, we booked the evening cruise to Ithaca on the 4th. The cruise left from Skala beach (easy boarding as boat noses right up to the beach) at 15:30. It took us and approx. 60 others up the east coast of Kefalonia, and then across to Ithaca. A lovely experience, with good commentary. There was one swim stop on the evening cruise (you get two on the morning one), which was enjoyed by lots of the passengers including my partner. We then sailed into the capital of Ithaca, Vathy. This was lovely stop and we had an hour and half to wander about and found a wonderful cake & bread shop just off the harbour front. I have never seen so many different cakes. We were very greedy! Onwards then to Kioni, which is a small harbour to the north of the island, and again we had an hour an a half to have a lovely dinner on the harbour front. Food was good, but service was slow as the sudden influx of our party quickly filled the restaurants! Time afterwards to wander around and have a look in the few shops. Back on boat for a lovely ride back in the dark with a stunningly clear sky in which to star gaze. We finally got back to Skala at 22:45, and have to say it was a great experience. A big thank you to all the crew for a super final evening out.

“incredible Ithica boat cruise”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

last week i went on the cruise to Ithica, the best trip of my whole holiday. The staff were so friendly and funny, told us lots about the island yet didn't go overboard meaning we could relax and just enojy the views. the boat was lovely and spacious even though it was full (still had lots of room to walk about). There was greek music playing to get us in the mood! i cannot fault this trip at all. I recommend it to all ages. This trip is an absolute must see and great value for your money! (unlike the thomson trips)
