    Absolutely wonderful experience. Our tour guides Ellias and Bill were amazing, very patient and kind, we were made to feel extremely comfortable during the whole experience. The food that was prepared for us was so delicious, I enjoyed every single mouth full. They provided us with snorkelling equipment and life jackets. They answered all the questions we had about Dia island which was very informative. Just a beautiful day, so grateful, would definitely recommend. Thank you so much.

    This was a highlight of our trip to Crete!! Just book it already. Skippers Markus and Christina went all out to ensure we enjoyed ourselves and were friendly and accommodating. The beautiful waters around Dia island were amazing and we really enjoyed snorkeling and swimming around the yacht (we were lucky to have a perfect day for it). The 37ft yacht was fantastic and very clean with warm shower, lots of space to relax/tan or chat to others. The lunch was perfect too as were the onboard refreshments.

    It was really amazing trip. Due to low number of people though, it had to be cancelled, but instead we were offered a huge discount on private tour of the same kind. It was really great, the stuff were really amazing and told us all about the the Dia island, and made a delicious meal. Totally recommended! Special thanks to you Iliyas and Nancy (I hope I spelled the names correctly).
