This was one of our favorite activities while we were in Athens! Dimitris was a friendly and knowledgeable guide who clearly loves sharing the beauty of the Greek coast with visitors! I loved the rush of jumping off different outcroppings and my partner got to hold a live sea urchin and feel it latch on to her hand. The snorkeling in gorgeous clear blue was so relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks, Dimitris!

The activity was very well organised. We really did everything on time, but still felt quite relaxed. Generally the journey was comfortable due to the careful driver and the comfortable bus. Also the time on the road didn’t seem too long with the stories from our charismatic guide .

It was amazing, best time, food was delicious, nice chilled relax time, totally worth it

The guide, Gari ( Friendly Greek Lady) very knowledgeable and well organized.
