Full description
After being picked up from your accommodation, set off to begin your 3-hour eco-friendly turtle spotting cruise. Climb aboard a special glass-bottomed boat and embark on your journey through the National Marine Park surrounding the island.  Make a photo stop at the famous Cameo Islet, which was created by the 1633 earthquake. Take unique photos (guaranteed sightings) of the turtles from up close, and take the opportunity to swim amongst them in their natural habitat.  After this, explore the enchanting Keri Caves, and pass underneath the “Kamares”, before enjoying another swimming opportunity in the clear waters. Finally, arrive at the turtle-shaped island of Marathonisi. Swim and have fun at the Golden Nesting Beach which is home to the loggerhead sea turtle Caretta Caretta. You will also have the chance to admire the stunning caves.

The boat trip was really great, even though turtle season is over we were able to see a turtle in the harbor. Furthermore, we drove to the Keri Caves where wonderful turquoise water invited for a short swim and snorkeling. The last stop at Marathonisi was also very nice for swimming and eating ice cream. Thanks to our wonderful skipper Stella!

We had a great time. We did not see the time passed. Jumping off the boat to see lots of fish, going into the caves with the boat, passing between narrow rocks, the color of the water, a beautiful beach with protected turtle nests and turtles. Kudos to the guide for her conduct in making us your turtles. Very nice.

Unfortunately we only saw one turtle and the one in the harbour. The boat ride was great and the captain was very keen that both sides of the boat could take the same pictures. On the turtle island, unfortunately, there was nothing to see on land or in the water. Definitely the time of year. All in all a great tour.
