Overall rating

We half expected an overcrowded party boat with load music and average lunch because of a few of the low-star reviews. However, we were super pleasantly surprised! Overall, the crowd on the boat was very varied. Yes, the boat had cocktails. Yes, music was played. However, nothing was forced, everything was super relaxt and the crew was amazingly friendly. The music was nice and not too loud, the lunch was great (the vegetarian option was unlike anywhere else, possibly better than the meat option) and the stops were although very touristy really nice!

It was a great experience but get there early to secure your spot and don't order cocktails until happy hour is declared

Fantastic day staff were brilliant, island were gorgeous and food was fab. Recommend for anyone on holiday in kos.

Very good trip with quite optimal time planning for swimming and nice lunch. And we saw the dolphins!

Great day, staff are friendly and fun, the food was lovely and the islands were stunning.
