What people are saying about Kos

We had such a great time on the Odessey boat cruise. We left for the first island and the crew were able to track down a pod of dolphins which was amazing to see. We were able to swim at the first island and look around the small village. We then had a lovely fresh lunch prepared by the crew, meat and vegetarian options were available. We were able to swim in the crystal blue waters and jump off the boat at the 2nd island which everyone really enjoyed. We then stayed at a sandy beach for an hour at the final island before returning to the boat heading back to Kos. The whole experience was fantastic and well worth the price. The crew were friendly and very attentive. I would advise getting to the boat at least 30mins before departing so you get a good seat/sunbathing area. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone to do a whole day boat cruise from Kos!

This cruise was a lot of fun visiting the surrounding islands of Kos with attentive crew & an ample lunch. Overall great value for money! The stops at the islands are roughly an hour as was the swim stop that included the slide & the opportunity to jump off the top of the boat. The boat does go into party mode with happy hour or 2 so the loud music may get to some but suggest you make the most of the summer tunes / vibes & enjoy. I strongly suggest you get on the boat early to secure a spot upstairs otherwise you may end up downstairs which was still nice might I add but the captain / crew do advise early on to return to your original places so ensure you get on the boat early to secure a good spot up top!!! Loads of fun in the sun & worth the $$$ spending a day cruising around the surrounding islands

Really great!! Can only recommend! Everyone on board is very hard-working and friendly! The prices for the drinks are perfectly fine, and the food was also very tasty! However, I would recommend less for families with small children, as it really mutates into a party boat over time.

Very interesting excursion, wonderful sea, very kind and nice crew and captain. We also saw dolphins

Super nice crew. Everything super nice. One of the best days on vacation.
