Our boat was Aphrodite Dutchess, we had so much fun and our tour guide Mike aka Jack Sparrow was absolutely brilliant. Also the guy at the bar I think his name was Guisippe was nice and made everyone feel welcome. We had an iced coffee on arrival,snacks were available and unlimited drinks. Greek bbq was simple but tasty. I would definitely go back.

100% worth it! Good music, vibes and sites. Don’t make the mistake I did not bringing a swimsuit, staff are really accommodating and provide means to float in the sea so you have nothing to be afraid of! Honestly coming back just so I can fully indulge in this experiences lol
