My husband and I had theeee BEST time aboard the ‘Blue Foam’. Makis was the greatest captain and kept us all safe, while still having an amazing time. He’s also soo knowledgeable and we learned so much. The water felt AMAZING to swim in and a dream come true. I highly recommend this excursion. You will NOT be disappointed. OH!! and the homemade local greek dishes he made us for lunch, umm AHH-MAZING! one of the best meals we’ve had all trip!

This tour is the best tour me and my girlfriend have done. Captain makis and his crewmate pavlos were just amazing, they could really feel our atmosphere and what we wanted. The beach they brought us to was just stunning, and the food was one of the best we ate in our trip to greece. it was the most relaxing day in my life. To anyone who is considering to go to this tour, stop considering and just order, I promise you will not regret it.

The experience was unforgettable! I am grateful for the driver who picked us up as agreed and for the care that all the people involved took of us. The beaches that we visited are among the most beautiful I have ever seen. As I said earlier, this was an unforgettable experience, well worth the money and I will be doing it again next time for sure!

The pictures do not do the activity justice!! It was absolutely wonderful. Friendly staff all around and the lunch was also good.

Wonderful time. Highly recommend! One of best days in our stay.
