Nice trip, saw some lovely fish, more as we swam closer to the island. Likely we could have seen these from swimming directly off Chania, but we didn’t have the gear and anyway the boat trip was fun. The guys were really nice: both professional and friendly. The day was a bit choppy so the journey was “wavy” but thankfully only 15mins. No sea sickness on the way out but a little queasy on the way back, which I put down to the shot of local alcohol given to us, which in hindsight was probably best avoided. Great trip though short and ideally I would have liked maybe a half hour longer in the water.

Manos and Dimitri were lovely responsible safe hosts. The trip was beautiful. We felt safe throughout and our teenage children loved the snorkelling which is extremely rare as they are usually moody and unimpressed! This time they wanted more. Please pass on our extreme thanks for giving us such a lovely experience.
