Great activity!!! We were lucky to have the boat just for the two of us with our captain Orestis!!! We were able to enjoy Navajio beach and explore the blues caves which are both impressive and magical. Our guide Orestis took the time for us and we thank him once again. Highly recommended. An experience that will mark you. Ps: we were lucky enough to come across a seal ☺️

Very nice trip to the shipwreck and some blue caves. Jannis, our young captain, responded to our wishes and maneuvered us into the caves with great skill and also gave us time to swim. We were very lucky because on the one hand it was not overcrowded and on the other hand the sea was very calm. 2 hours were perfect in time.

Magical experience! Discovery of the shipwreck beach with stop for swimming if you wish (we did it !!!) and especially discovery of the coves and caves where the water is turquoise! With a boat just for us (2) and a top skipper - thank you Yannis !!! This excursion is definitely worth the price!

Despite initial difficulties maximum recommended. Caution, the port consists of two parts, the gps takes you to the wrong place, and there is no passage. After a phone call handled correctly, they came for us.

Had a great captain and the overall experience was very satisfying. It was a very enjoying trip, even for our one year old
