We took the three hour trip from Rethymnon up the coast to Panormos and thought it was excellent. This is a simple trip in a fast boat - no commentary, just sit back and enjoy the ride, exactly what we wanted. The trip took in...More

Absolutely terrible value for money. €35 per head for 5 hour trip. Not at all how it was sold to us. Snorkelling and beaches and as much wine as you can drink, pirate fancy dress. A 40 minute ride to the first stop for snorkelling...More

Dear Sir/ Madam, thank you very much for taking the time to write this really helpful review. We feel sorry for your disappointment but you have obviously been misguided, regarding our cruise. You see, our cruise doesn't take you to any beach. Instead, we take...More
