    This was such a fun experience! Our initial full day boat tour we had booked failed and didn't honor our reservation and filled our spots so we had to make other plans and I'm so glad we found this one! Gorgio and Aleksandra were amazing hosts. We met them in the port and were offered coffee before taking the 1 hour boat ride across to Dia Island. Once there we were served finger food and drinks and given an hour to enjoy the cove, snorkels and paddle boards so were provided. The crystal clear waters were amazing, the water felt so great, and it wasn't too packed in the area we set our anchor down. After our time in the water we had a delicious fruit platter and headed back, watching the sun set across the Mediterranean. 10/10 recommend! Side note, the waves were pretty choppy so the ride across to the island was pretty wavy, we all felt fine and it was much calmer on the return journey. Just be prepared if you get sea sick!

    Very friendly and helpful staff. As soon as we set sail from the Venetian port, we headed to the island of Dia (of which we discovered the mythological legend concerning it) and where we were able to take a bath in the crystal clear waters near it. During this stop we were offered a savory aperitif followed by fresh fruit, both freshly prepared. Finally, we returned to the port admiring a breathtaking sunset in the distance. The organizer is also very helpful to quickly indicate the right port.
