What people are saying about Kissamos

We were 4 people plus the captain. Excellent excursion, spacious but not luxurious boat, young captain very good, safe and professional. Lunch on board was simple but good (cheese, bread, fruit) and a bottle of white wine. The captain (Costat) made us discover the most beautiful beaches, according to our wishes and the weather that suited us. I invite you to take this tour if you want a nice, intimate excursion far from the tourist crowds Thank you
