Me and my friend did not made the trip this trip should be okt at 09 00. The day before at 18.00 i got a message that the trip will be in the afternoon on 1 okt. They didn't ask us if its okay with us. Then i called the office they said that in the morning the sea will be to cold to swim!! Very stranges. We had other plans for the afternoon and they offered the next day but we were goimg home the next day so we were very angry that they cancelled the morning trip!!

ear Guest, We appreciate your comments regarding your recent tour. It is always a pleasure to receive comments/ feedback in order to improve our service! Please note that the morning tour did not operate due to weather, not because we decided to cancel. You have been informed the day before and as you said we offered you to participate at 13:00pm . You refused to so we proceeded to a full refund!!!!

Fantastic cruise with some beautiful views through the glass-windows on the bottom floor and plenty of time to swim in a couple of lovely locations. The cruise was easy to find, with lovely staff.

Not our thing

The boat and crew were very nice and welcoming. However, It was not an activity we recommend since the sheer amount of boats around one single turtle bothered us. You wait 15 minutes to see a turtle breathe above water and then they turn the boat and the wait starts again. But you are one of 10 other boats waiting around a single turtle. We highly recommend the other sights and this company but take a snorkel to see the turtles

Dear Customer Thank you for the feedback though you cannot force and creature to appear on sight on request rather that is a tour that you have to seat and wait and enjoy the greatness of these sea creatures. Regards

Keri caves were extraordinary

I really enjoyed the trip. You're going to be on a 25-30 people boat. There's a glass side only on one part of the boat so most probably, half the people will not get to profit of it but it's not a big deal. It's divided in 3 parts: Turtle hunt around Laganas bay and views from the boat of Cameo Island, Stop for swimming at the Keri Caves and panoramic view, and finally Marathinisi Island. First part in my opinion was very boring, even though we wanted to see turtles, finding one is not so easy. After a good 45 minutes we found one and it came on surface to breathe 3 times during a period of 30 minutes. Then we spent some time in the keri caves ( around 30 minutes ) that was the best stop of all. I enjoyed them so much they are astonishing. Then we moved to Marathonisi which was nice and had a really pretty beach even though the turtles nests were for abvious reasons protected and we did not get to see any other. The trip overall was nice and we had a good time. Definitely a good trip even though I would have avoided the first stop sacrificing the turtle hunt for some more time at the Caves.

Excursion à éviter malgré une guide très sympathique. Nous avons vu une tortue mais 3 bateaux tournaient autour d’elle. Arrêt sur la plage de Marathonisi (là où les tortues pondent leurs œufs) pleine de touristes. Nous avons du mal à croire que cette espèce soit protégée. Cependant les grottes de Kheri sont très jolies.

A notre arrivée, le bateau n’avait aucune connaissance du trip. Nous avons dû appeler le service client de viator sans quoi notre billet n’était pas valide. Le service client a été réactif et nous pu effectuer l’excursion. Petite précision par rapport au descriptif: le snorkeling se fait au niveau des caves, la vue des tortues ( deux tortues …) se fait du bateau et pendant 30 min sur les 3 heures d’excursion. Il n’y a pas possibilité de nager avec les tortues dans le cadre de l’excursion

Dear Guest, We appreciate your comments regarding your recent tour. It is always a pleasure to receive comments/ feedback in order to improve our service! We are terribly sorry you encountered this misunderstanding during your embarkation but with so many bookings from various of platforms, local agents, agents from all over Greece sometimes it is difficult for the person on the check in to keep track. Caretta- caretta turtles is protective spieces (extinction) and not allowed close contact. Looking forward to see you again in the near future to one of our tours. Best regards
