Nice boat trip to Ithaca which has beautiful coves. In a pandemic period I would have expected more attention to social distancing and masks, instead they embarked more people than they should, so much so that we were massed and masks were optional. Such a pity! It would have been more correct to warn and not to deceive people by stating on the site that everything would be done safely. It was not so.

Excellent trip, pity for the traffic of boats in the coves around Ithaca, and for the snorkel that I could not use, cmq everything else perfect, friendly and helpful staff.

Great crew, lovely swimming spots and a really enjoyable trip. Excellent value for money

Friendly staff. Yacht stopped in beautiful bays for us to swim. Wonderful day out!
