My husband and I decided to take this cruise after our travel agent recommended it to us. We were so thrilled with our experience. We got lucky to be with one other couple who were the sweetest souls and made our experience that much better. Graziella and Saro are so incredibly lovely and charming--they completely made this experience as amazing as it was. The views were amazing, made better by Graziella's knowledge of the island. The boat is kept up meticulously well and we loved having the snacks they provided toward the end of our tour, after we were done swimming. My husband and I are on our honeymoon and they toasted us with prosecco which was such a beautiful gesture. Highly, highly recommend this tour, independently owned by a wonderful wife and husband team.

Although it was raining so much the day we did this excursion, they made it a really pleasant experience! They also send a message before the excursion if we wanted to do the boat tour on another day to have better weather but we didn’t had any service on our phone so we didn’t see the message. Although they didn’t know we were coming they were waiting for us! We got to swim with lots of fish because of the boat driver! We got some snacks and a drink on the boat with a nice talk with them! It was an amazing boat tour and i would recommend everyone to do this one with blue diamond!
