    It was a great day. 1 hour motor sailboat ride to Dia Island, then anchor in the bay. We got goggles and snorkels and snorkeled. We saw some schools of fish. The food was simple but delicious. After 1.5 hours it was back again. It was a quiet and relaxing time.

    We spent an excellent half-day aboard the boat of George and his crew. George is a passionate guide, who knows the surroundings like the back of his hand and is full of great anecdotes. The meal is very good, plus point for the vegetarian option! Arrived at the island of Dia, the boat drops anchor and passengers are free to sunbathe or jump into the water for snorkeling (equipment provided). Thanks to George for his good humor and his warm and jovial welcome, we had a great time!

    Great time on the sailboat. Staff was friendly and explained everything. Great sailing to the island. Food was good too. Only thing would be the meet up needs a little work. Kinda just stood around the cafe until someone randomly came by and asked if we were part of the trip. Maybe a sign or something.
