What people are saying about Agia Pelagia

This boat trip was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. The friendly staff, pristine boat and stunning scenery did not disappoint. Communication was great, especially when I requested a date change due to weather forecast. The transfer was prompt and reliable, the food on the trip was delicious and the island itself was absolutely beautiful. I can't fault this experience, I'm very happy I booked it.

We had the greatest time during the sailing trip. Everything was well organized and on time. They provided snorkeling equipment and fed the fish, so we felt like swimming in an aquarium. I had no expectations concerning the food, but it turned out to be really good. This was definitely our favorite activity during our time in Crete - absolutely recommendable!
