    Alex and Sergei the crew members were top notch, funny, professional. The excursion was amazing, the weather was perfect with lots of sunshine. We were able to dive around the island of Dia and explore the seabed in apnea. The only downside remains the poverty of the underwater fauna and flora in this sector. The excursion would be even better if we could visit the island and have a historical tour of it. I even recommend that locals do it at least once. Ps: Alex prepared the lunch dishes like no one else, it was delicious.

    AMAZING! Yani, George and Maria/Marianna (apologies for poor/incorrect name spelling haha) made the trip even more unforgettable. They brought energy, educational facts and activities to the trip! They got everyone involved and made it feel personal. The trip itself was incredible. Snacks and drinks onboard at all times and a gorgeous fish and salad meal at lunchtime. The trip out there was smooth and when we got to the island we were met with some fun facts and stories about it. We then could explore as we wished with snorkels, flippers, paddle boards and inflatables! Clear, blue and still water full of wildlife was super fun to explore. Overall completely worth the money and was an unreal experience

    We spontaneously moved the tour from the morning to the afternoon the day before without any problems. The staff are super friendly. The boat tour was well organized from start to finish. Food and fun entertainment included. The food and drinks were super delicious! The bay of Dia Island is beautiful. We went snorkeling and saw lots of fish, starfish, small jellyfish and crabs. Just a dream! Worth every cent!
