We enjoyed snorkeling in Marathon Cape with Dimitris. We were a little nervous as it was our first time snorkeling but Dimitris made sure everybody was safe and knew how to use the equipment. The water was calm, which made it really easy to swim in. We couldn’t believe how clear the water was! We saw so many sea creatures, there were a ton of fish! One of the coolest experiences and most relaxing. At the second stop, Schinias, one person saw a sting ray! After the event, we decided to grab lunch by the beach before heading back to our hotel. It was an awesome day!

It was a wonderful tour! From Athens you can get to Nea Makri by bus or taxi and as soon as you arrive at the diving center you're off. You can see a beautiful bay with the clearest water! Dimitris shows you many things, she explains and lets you know if you can touch the creatures carefully. The equipment is top, everything worked perfectly and you can even get a wetsuit, which I recommend to everyone!

Very good experience! I joined snorkeling and he showed us some animal he found along the way, we can even touch them. We saw small fishes! The 4pm tour can be a bit cool when at 5-6pm. We couldn't find a bus after the tour at 9pm, so we call them and they even helped us to call the taxi!! Highly recommended

Have a good trip! Mixture of boat trip, snorkeling in the shore area, good explanations and then pure relaxation in Marathon Bay. Didn't expect a wetsuit. It was really great and well organized.

It was a very lovely experience. We enjoyed the trip. Dimitri has a great knowledge about plants and animals in that area and he shows everything he finds to you!
