    This was truly such a highlight of our trip to Milos. 10/10 - recommend immensely. Each of the 10 passengers were asked to do a self-test for covid the day before and go in-person to attest to a negative result. It was clear that they took everyone’s safety very seriously. The actual trip was amazing too. We went to a bunch of beautiful spots, and had access to goggles, snorkels, and paddle boards. We were served a truly delicious home-cooked lunch with a variety of options (octopus pasta, fresh cheese, fresh fish, chicken salad, Greek salad, potato salad, tzatziki, etc — all restaurant quality, one of the best meals we have had on this trip!), snacks, a Greek yogurt parfait, Greek beer and other specialty drinks, and fresh fruit. The captain and the first mate/chef were both so kind and friendly. I couldn’t recommend this high enough. A fellow passenger shared that he had done a number of catamarans over his trips and this was certainly the best.

The gear was in great shape and she anticipated everything wide brim (hat, string for sunglasses, small dry bag for phone and windbreaker foot after the sun goes down. The snack was delicious and enough for a full meal - salad, spinach pie etc. The whole experience felt like hanging out with friends. The sunset was beautiful too.

Absolutely amazing activity and the guide Kalliopi was fantastic. This was by far the best thing we did in Santorini; kayaking into caves, swimming, snorkelling, cliff jumping and an absolutely delicious lunch in a secluded spot. We were collected and picked up from Oia included in the price. Cannot fault the experience.

This was a completely excellent trip—beautiful sights, amazing food, and fantastic guides. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it as one of the best experiences of our trip to Greece!

very nice experience, beautiful katamaran and very friendly and helpful hosts! would love to go again!

Probably the best experience we had in Santorini. Can't recommend it highly enough!
