Pick up worked great, the boat trip was very nice. Then we stopped for a swim. This was indescribably beautiful. We had about 2 1/2 hours to swim, snorkel etc. We were let out at the swimming stop 50-100 meters from the beach. So if you don't want to leave your personal belongings on board, you should take a waterproof bag or something with you because you have to swim from the boat to land. There was also a possibility to eat and drink on the boat. We personally didn't find the food that great. But otherwise the boat trip is really only recommended. Was really beautiful.

Superb cruise! The fact that the coach picks us up at our hotel is something great, it avoids having to travel to Heraklion. In addition, the crossing to the island was easy and swimming in the turquoise waters of the island is truly something unforgettable. I strongly recommend this cruise to discover beautiful landscapes and swim in crystal clear waters.

Fantastic experience, fantastic guide, driver and staff of the boat .. the place there are no words to describe it, another world .. the caves are beautiful the water is a turquoise never seen before!

Very well organized, great guide and bus, delicious lunch. Such an amazing island! Pity we couldn't get more time on the island. Definitely recommended though!
