Amazing experience. A must-do activity when visiting Kos! We arrived at the Old Port and walked along the marina until we saw the Odyssey boat and picked a great seat on the deck (we later realised this seat would be the prime splash zone while at sea but we loved it!) The crew of the Odyssey boat were so friendly, we felt like we were in safe capable hands. The captain provided some great insights about the local area and the islands we visited (all in English) and the time spent in all 3 locations was just enough. Amazing experience to swim off the boat, disappointed that the dolphins all seemed to be hiding when we sailed by the fish farms but not to be helped! Great to have lunch provided (even catered for Veg/vegan). Nice atmosphere with the music and be prepared to get up and dance with the crew before you arrive back at the port! Can’t fault the experience, we had so much fun.

It was super nice! The crew was amazing and very helpful, the food was okay. The best part was when we saw the dolfins!! Personally I really enjoyed when we stopped and swimmed from the boat and also the last island, it was very cute and relaxing. 100% recommended! <3

Wow!☀️ Amazing sailing and good vibes! Captain and his crew is are polite and smiling people. Vegan lunch was excellent and delicious! Thank! ❤️

Very good, loved all of it. Just a warning though, if you don’t like the wind or choppy waves, it won’t be for you.

Loved it, amazing way to see the other islands and great value for money. Really worth it.
