We had lots of fun! The only thing I wasn't crazy about is the multiple boats surrounding and harassing one poor turtle but otherwise everything was smooth and it was well worth the price! Our captain was super nice and answered every question we had! We had plenty of time to swim and enjoy the beach I feel like the 3 hour frame is the perfect amount!

Everybody was delighted to offer us a nice excursion. The transportation from the agency booth to the boat was fast and safe. The captain really gave us a nice tour and he didn't rush at all. He tracked down a turtle and gave us a long time for photo shooting around the turtle without causing any discrepancies. Although we had a mechanical failure of the propeller, the problem was solved almost instantly during our stay at marathonisi (1 hour stop as scheduled). The tour continued in Keri's caves and we swam for 20 minutes. As a conclusion, the tour was more than a success. Of course, apart from the aforementioned reasons for that, one should take into consideration that the island of ZAKINTHOS wasn't overcrowded, so we really enjoyed out time with a peace of mind.
