The tour itself was great, many monasteries and saw various dolphins in between. Only the meaning of the glass floor was not really recognizable. Finally, about some stones that were given out as a reef with hardly any fish, the glass bottom was only useful for that. Service actually only as a marketing gimmick. If you are looking forward to seeing something through the glass bottom you will be disappointed, but recommended as a normal boat trip.

A very recommendable trip. The boat is really nice and you have a great view of the monasteries of Athos and on the way back you can let the sea air blow around your nose. Information about what you see is available from the tape in several languages, so that everything is very easy to understand. The crew on board is very attentive and nice.

Condensed and focused trip past monastic settlements

(+) Comfortable ship with an excellent view from all seats. Friendly crew attitude. Glass-bottom offers interesting view in low-depth waters. Excellent occasion to meet wildlife: dolphins and seagulls accompanying the ship. (-) Audio presentation of visited places not audible enough at all times. Monastic life film projection not performed or moment not announced to passengers. Promised yellow coral reef presentation did not happen.
