4.8 / 5

The guide was super nice and explained a lot to us beginners. We dived at an incredibly beautiful dive site and really got a lot to see for our money. On the positive side, the diving instructor realized on the day of the dive that the risk of a weather change was too high and we could still catch up on this flexibly the next day. Always happy.

The trip was great fun. Sven is very kind and helpful and made the trip truly unforgettable. We’ve spent the day stopping at various breathtaking locations, a SUP and snorkelling equipment were available with no extra fee.

I traveled with my boyfriend and another couple of friends. It was an amazing experience as we enjoyed a whole day (6-7 h) of sailing with Sven's boat.

Super nice captain! Everything worked out perfectly. Also worth mentioning are the sandwiches on the star kitchen level!

Emilios was at and so patient with us, we had a great time!
