Everything was excellent! Easy booking and excellent communication from Makis, prior to the trip and onboard. him and Pavlos (spelling?) were extremely hospitable and made the tour fun and relaxing. Shipwreck cove was a wonderful pre meal swim with comfortable temperatures and little fish to watch. The homemade meal was truly a treat and he had some good wine to go with it. Lastly, before heading out, we had a good chunk of time to sunbathe. We were even able to play "Tarzan & Jane" off the boat and into the water. An absolutely wonderful way to spend the day! highly recommend

GREAT EXCURSION!!! Me and partner joined from Psakoudia, only a short drive and we both really loved it. The boat was great. All the stops we made were really nice, picturesque and we had enough time to do what we wanted while we were at each one. Food was really nice and enough for the average person. Really reasonably priced snacks and drinks on board if you need. Staff were all welcoming and lovely. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Halkidiki.

The experience was unforgettable! I am grateful for the driver who picked us up as agreed and for the care that all the people involved took of us. The beaches that we visited are among the most beautiful I have ever seen. As I said earlier, this was an unforgettable experience, well worth the money and I will be doing it again next time for sure!

This was an amazing experience, Sven was really great and friendly. We got to swim which was super fun and the sunset was beautiful! We also got to see the moon and the boat ride was lovely ! I would definitely go again !

The pictures do not do the activity justice!! It was absolutely wonderful. Friendly staff all around and the lunch was also good.
