Our day was an amazing experience, based on weather conditions we received a free upgrade to a yacht and was taken onto Thirissia Island for lunch. We were a family of 11 ranging in age from 5 to 72. The crew were fantastic, and made our day memorable, would highly recommend!

We loved this excursion! My husband and I booked this and were a bit nervous that we should have saved some money and booked the semi private cruise. We quickly realized we had made the correct decision. The transportation to and from the marina was easy and quick. The cruise itself was beautiful, the crew was fun and kind, our captain (papa) made some small changed in the route to make the most of our time, we got to swim, use the snorkel gear, and had a DELICIOUS lunch. Would definitely book again!
