Full description
Meet the captain "Takis Karidis" at noon (12.30 PM) with your tickets at the port of St. Nikolaos on the northeastern side of Zakynthos island. After a short meet and greet with your skipper, you will set off into the horizon aboard your boat for a jam-packed day full of adventure.  Your first stop of the day will be Navagio beach, arriving at approximately 1:15 PM just as the big boats leave, offering you a more private experience as you enjoy and explore without large crowds. While approaching the famous shipwreck beach, the captain will share with you the true story of the abandoned boat and help you land on the beach with safety. After 1 to 1.5-hours, your captain will call you back to board the boat once again, so you can head to your next destination - the Blue Caves.  After leaving the Navagio behind you will eventually find yourself at the Blue Caves. On the glass-bottom boat, you will be able to see the clear deep water and observe fish, corals and the rich sea life. If you feel up to it, you can ask your skipper for a life vest and even swim in the crystal clear blue waters. End your day back at the dock where you first boarded the boat.

Good short trip

Overall good trip to Navagio beach and you can swim there for 1 hour (not 1.5 hr) followed by short visit to Blue Cave and optional snorkeling near by. You need to have a car as meeting point is at restaurant 5 min drive from Harbour. There was absolutely no point to meet at the restaurant, should have been straight to Harbour.

Nice trip

Since the previous reviews said that the meeting point in the restaurant was only to spend money there, I had first considered going directly to the port. But then I decided against it and just waited in front of the restaurant. On time someone came to check that the group was complete and to guide us to the departure point. (He drove ahead with his car) The tour was really nice. Sufficient, however, once you've done it. The view from the top of the bay is much more beautiful and impressive! This one hour on the beach is mainly used to take beautiful pictures. Go to another beach to relax. The Blue Caves are also very beautiful and well worth a look. Personally, I found it nicer to rent your own boat and see the caves on your own. The crew was very nice and explained a lot. Be sure to take snorkel with you - whoever has it. These are not provided.

Nice somewhat long boat ride to the beach. We got 1 hour to walk around, relax, and take pictures at the cove. Afterwards, we go back and get to go to the "real" Blue Caves to stop and take more pictures from the boat, then swim around just outside of these caves. The water was very blue and clear that day at both locations. Other than the confusion about meeting at the restaurant and getting to the port, with 4 of the other tour members (the remaining 10 people apparently ended up getting picked up and driven to the port), the event was great relative to the money spent.
