    This snorkeling tour was one of the highlights of our Athens vacation and we can only recommend it. The weather wasn't that good that day, so after consultation with all participants, Dimitris skipped the boat trip and drove with us in the car to a snorkeling spot (he then made the tour cheaper). The sea was pleasantly calm there, so that we had a very nice time despite the strong wind. In the water, he repeatedly drew our attention to various creatures and explained things that we would probably never have noticed on our own. Briefly on how to get here: From Athens you can take the KTEL Attikis buses to Nea Makri. The departure from Athens is next to the metro station Nomismatokopio, the departure times can be found on the website of the bus company. Depending on the traffic situation, the journey time is approx. 1 hour. A one-way trip costs €2.90 per person, we paid for it while we were on the bus.

    We enjoyed snorkeling in Marathon Cape with Dimitris. We were a little nervous as it was our first time snorkeling but Dimitris made sure everybody was safe and knew how to use the equipment. The water was calm, which made it really easy to swim in. We couldn’t believe how clear the water was! We saw so many sea creatures, there were a ton of fish! One of the coolest experiences and most relaxing. At the second stop, Schinias, one person saw a sting ray! After the event, we decided to grab lunch by the beach before heading back to our hotel. It was an awesome day!

    Very good experience! I joined snorkeling and he showed us some animal he found along the way, we can even touch them. We saw small fishes! The 4pm tour can be a bit cool when at 5-6pm. We couldn't find a bus after the tour at 9pm, so we call them and they even helped us to call the taxi!! Highly recommended
