Nicely organized trip! Saw both green and blue caves (our guide was organized and planned out the perfect time to get there with minimal line ups!) Got to swim in Stiniva Bay and another bay in Pakleni, cruise around the yachts in Palmiziana, stop in Koniza for lunch and browsing shops. They even had goggles on board which came in handy when wanting to see the beautiful fish while we swam.

The guides were excellent and took us to fun places with less crowds. Be prepared for a cold ride back given the later time and it’s a speedboat, and bring snacks as lunch isn’t until 3.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip meeting new people and just lazying about on a boat and zipping past a a number of unspoilt islands, wind in the hair, sounds of “her name is Rio” in the air!

I went with a group of friends and would definitely recommend. You need cash for the boat to the blue cave and there isn't any an ATM on the island so be prepared for this.

Absolutely awesome time, loved the seating on the back of the boat
