Great trip!!! The team is incredibly nice and caring! The food is delicious - drinks as much as you want! The catamaran and swimming/snorkeling and SUP gear very well maintained. Unfortunately, we had rain and very high waves, so that many got seasick, but they were mothered really well and treated with various means. We all felt very safe and in good hands. And the "healthy" rest had a lot of fun with the waves, good music and fine drinks. Thanks again to the team!

Amazing experience - the perfect end to our stay in Crete! Just take note that the time changes through the seasons - our tickets said 8pm but the boat set sail at 6.30pm.

Staff attentive and attentive to needs. Very quality meal. We had a great day despite the capricious weather. We recommend eyes closed.

We had a great day. It was very relaxing. The swim was very nice. The captain and staff were very friendly and funny.

We stopped at a bay, it was beautiful and the water is crystal clear. A dream.
