“brilliant day out”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

There are lots of turtle and cave trips in zante. However they're not all the same. Most are on huge boats that are overcrowded. Not so with this trip. Is so much better and more informative. Marios is a skilful captain who has a wealth of k knowledge. It'd recommend this tour to everyone.com

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went on Marion's boat in July. We are a family of 6 with 3 teenagers and a 7 year old. We loved the day.He was truly interested in the natural habitat around zakinthos and showed us the true natural beauty.we were so lucky to see many turtles swimming in the bay - this was priceless.the swimming and snorkelling stops were magnificent and turtle island was beautiful. If you want to see more of zakynthos than busy beach clubs this is he tour for you.

“Amazing day trip with the "Crocodile Dundee of the Sea"”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had a wonderful day out on Mario's boat. Mario has a friendly, relaxed manner that puts the group at ease. He also knows the best places to visit, finding us a few turtles, visiting caves, secret hidden beaches, and stopping in a few places for us to swim in beautiful clear waters and spot other interesting aquatic life. If we ever returned to Zakynthos we would not hesitate in going again! Iain & Samantha

“Fantastic trip no. 11”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We have been with Mario for the last 11 years. What can I say fabulous, this year even more so with fabulous snorkelling off Keri such deep waters and thousands of fishes. On our way back saw seals within meters of Mario and my family. Amazing!!!!

“A brilliant way to see the island and wildlife.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you are going to Zakynthos you must go on Mario's cruise. We had a great day out - Mario picked us up from our hotel at 8.30a.m. and we were out for the entire day. We were able to swim and snorkel at several places and were even able to swim into caves that are only accessible through very small holes! Mario also navigated us into several caves which most boats wouldn't be able to get into!

After an excellent lunch in a tavern recommended by Mario (which was great value for money and lovely food!) we were able to see and photograph several Loggerhead Turtles - Mario knew where to look for them and was able to tell us a lot about them and other sea creatures which we watched whist snorkelling. It was a fantastic day - thanks Mario!
