Wonderful day on the boat for families, couples or singletons too. We have truly enjoyed exploring the islands this way but what really made it great was the experienced and friendly crew who made sure everyone on board had the best time! Seating was comfortable and we felt everyone had plenty of space on board. There were many opportunities to cool down in the sea and swim in beautiful cave and beaches. Lunch was excellent - freshly prepared and delicious traditional Greek food. All in all great value for money. I am glad we chose Papanikolis Boat!

Good experience! first of all the boat was not too big, we were 15/18 people on board, which I appreciated! Gaia and Filippo are kind and nice, always ready to help you or answer any questions. We took baths in different places, one more beautiful than the other, among the fish, with some starfish and a moray! They provided them with masks and fins, of excellent quality. Lunch is also excellent and abundant. I recommend it

Hreat day trip with friendly family hosts. Not overcrowded and felt relaxed throughout the trip. Lovely stops at some nice beaches with plenty of time to swim and take in the atmosphere. Very nice lunch (remember to tell them if you’re veggie in advance, they’ll be happy to cater for you. Water and drinks offered throughout. Highly recommended :)

Extremely enjoyable experience, everything about this cruise both me and my partner loved!! Would 100% recommend especially if you love swimming and snorkelling with fishes!!

We had a great day on this tour! The crew were fantastic, so nice and helpful. The places we went were beautiful, lunch was great!
