It was perfect for my mum and I. Kids loved the snorkeling, and jumping off the boat. Lunch was more than enough, no need to worry about that. It’s a swimming activity so dont expect to land anywhere, but swim around a bit at every location and then get back on the boat. These bays are otherwise pretty hard to reach without a car, so if you’re planning on using public transport in Rhodes, this is the perfect activity for you. Bring sunblock! We went around end of july and the sun is burning the skin off you if youre not prepared! There is a bar, you can pay by card but bring cash because the connection can get lost so the terminal doesnt work sometimes. There were young girls on board entertaining small children when they gor board between each swimming session, it eas really sweet:)

Brilliant experience hosted by very professional supportive guides Maria and George. Just lived the whole activity with lots of information given about local area and breakfast stop was so nice.

Nice experience for the kids. Life west available for the kids to swim and snorkle.

Excellent day out- highlight of our holiday. Fun, relaxing and entertaining

Well catered for on the boat , food was great and all drinks provided .
