Amazing cruise! The crew did a great job keeping the action going. They described the surrounding islands, we saw the beautiful blue caves and even saw dolphins playing in the wake! We stopped to swim in the crystal clear water and the DJ played energetic music that turned the boat into a dance party along with the Greek dancers. Highly recommend this tour! 5 Stars!

A long but picturesque boat ride. Blue caves were surprisingly large. Ride was comfortable - no seasickness. We saw dolphins! Paxos is nice, and the swim at Antipaxos was invigorating. Ride back was a party, complete with DJ.

The cruise was enjoyable throughout the day ! From the beginning with the welcoming, the discover of Lakka in Paxos, the swimming near Antipaxos and the end of the journey with the radiation am Greek dancers, we loved it!

We really enjoyed every moment. Is nice to see your teenage one with open mouth inside the caves. We get plenty time for swimming. Just probably more time will be nice for explor Paxos island.

We went in late October and it was still pretty crowded, so I can't imagine what it's like during the busiest time. But we still had a great experience.
