Very great experience on board, the views are beautiful and crew is professional as well. We rrally liked the cruise and swimming in 3 different places! You will definetely have a lot of time to swim and relax. There was an upsetting moment as well - when we arrived ob first day and waited for 30 mins (15 mins prior to departure), we were told that unfortunately there will be no cruise today due to the weather. So we wasted our time (getting from Faliraki to Rhodes). We decided to try the next day and not get a refund, fortunately we had our cruise the next day and we enjoyed it. But organisation could be better, for sure.

Attentive and friendly crew, beautiful bays, beaches and coves, delicious lunch. Fantastic day out! Bring your own snorkelling gear though if you wish to snorkel as the boat only has a few masks... Well worth it!

Great outing, 3 stops in beautiful places, to go swimming, and snorkeling. Top meal, unlimited drinks and small snacks in the morning and fresh fruit salad in the afternoon. I recommend it's really great.

Great cruise with plenty of time at each swim stop. Delicious lunch, great portion size and includes added snacks late morning and afternoon before returning to the Marina.

Fantastic excursion, fair price and delicious food - also for vegetarians :)
