    It was a great day. 1 hour motor sailboat ride to Dia Island, then anchor in the bay. We got goggles and snorkels and snorkeled. We saw some schools of fish. The food was simple but delicious. After 1.5 hours it was back again. It was a quiet and relaxing time.

    We spent an excellent half-day aboard the boat of George and his crew. George is a passionate guide, who knows the surroundings like the back of his hand and is full of great anecdotes. The meal is very good, plus point for the vegetarian option! Arrived at the island of Dia, the boat drops anchor and passengers are free to sunbathe or jump into the water for snorkeling (equipment provided). Thanks to George for his good humor and his warm and jovial welcome, we had a great time!

    A great morning on the sailboat. The water was superb. Diving equipment was available. But we only saw sea urchins and a few fish. The food was very good. The drink was unlimited. But we didn't have the 1/2 liter of wine as written in the description. Maybe a bit pricey for us.
