Full description
After being picked up from your accommodation, set off to begin your 3-hour eco-friendly turtle spotting cruise. Climb aboard a special glass-bottomed boat and embark on your journey through the National Marine Park surrounding the island.  Make a photo stop at the famous Cameo Islet, which was created by the 1633 earthquake. Take unique photos (guaranteed sightings) of the turtles from up close, and take the opportunity to swim amongst them in their natural habitat.  After this, explore the enchanting Keri Caves, and pass underneath the “Kamares”, before enjoying another swimming opportunity in the clear waters. Finally, arrive at the turtle-shaped island of Marathonisi. Swim and have fun at the Golden Nesting Beach which is home to the loggerhead sea turtle Caretta Caretta. You will also have the chance to admire the stunning caves.

Overall the trip was nice. First we visited Keri Caves by boat and stopped for swimming. Then we had 30mins break in a beautiful beach that was unfortunately full of other boats. There were also boats that sold refreshments but didn't have toilets supposedly. We saw few jellyfish so swimming was a bit uncomfortable but I would still do it. Lastly many boats were looking for one turtle to spot and after 20mins we found one and could see it for few seconds. The glass bottom was useless. The best part was probably after returning to the port, there was a local fisher man feeding one turtle, so it would stay beside his boat for a long time. It was 1 meter away.

We were very satisfied with the guide. Good explanation and good planning. However, the boat was somewhat small, which also increased the risk of incorrect weight distribution, and therefore tilting of the boat (or worse). We were also very close to each other. A tip is to transport fewer people by boat. Transportation was included. However, there was no transport waiting for us on the way back. Furthermore, we were lucky enough to spot a turtle. And we stopped at beautiful places to swim and to take pictures. Good communication with the organization itself. Search for quick solutions.

We saw several turtles! Many boats come to see the same turtle from different sides. But I enjoyed the deep dive by the rocks the most. Soooo beautiful the water and an affordable tour! (If you want to go when it's more empty go around 9am. But if you want to see nicer water colors go to the 11am) I booked the 2hr private boat tour with them after. They have a great company!
