The service on the day was exceptional, we arrived in Zakynthos port and discovered the bus we intended to catch to St Nik didn’t run that day. We rang Get your guide and they organised for local operator Abba to pick us up and assured us no extra cost. The boat we boarded couldn’t go to Shipwreck, so they found us another boat that would. It was beautiful and fun and a once in a lifetime adventure. We were planning a 5 star rating on our way home from such a great day when the local operator’s boss called us and said we would have to pay an extra 50 Euro for them picking us up and returning us. It put a major downer on an otherwise fantastic day. Not happy about the lie - as we specifically asked about whether pick up would cost extra and we were told it would not. A warning to anyone staying in Zakynthos- organise your transport in advance! !!
Prompt departure although I don’t understand the logic of being picked up from the restaurant, might as well meet in the harbour less than a 5 minute drive away with plenty of parking. Friendly staff but not much information or introduction given. Fast boat which was quite fun but not ideal for people looking for a calm relaxing cruise. Shipwreck beach was good but of course very touristy, timed it right in between big boats leaving and new ones arriving. Blue caves were nothing special in my opinion but the snorkelling was great, remember to bring your snorkel as they are not supplied. No food and drinks on boats. Worth the money.
Nice somewhat long boat ride to the beach. We got 1 hour to walk around, relax, and take pictures at the cove. Afterwards, we go back and get to go to the "real" Blue Caves to stop and take more pictures from the boat, then swim around just outside of these caves. The water was very blue and clear that day at both locations. Other than the confusion about meeting at the restaurant and getting to the port, with 4 of the other tour members (the remaining 10 people apparently ended up getting picked up and driven to the port), the event was great relative to the money spent.
Exceptionally courteous Captain and crew, they were knowledgeable, helpful and skilled. The smaller boat and arrival time at Navagio Beach made for a slightly less crowded experience, which was nice. The transit to and from the port was well executed, with the Captain pulling into areas or slowing down to allow for pictures. And the swimming spot at the Blue Caves was glorious.
Nice captain, small group make this tour perfect! We could feel the essence of Aegean Sea of Zakynthos. One little thing to be careful is that drinks from the meeting point(the restaurant) are not free, even expensive, despite of they seem to be welcome drinks.
