This trip was fantastic. Our guide (unfortunately didn’t catch her is name) was so helpful and friendly. My dad was on crutches and I had previously emailed the tour company to ensure the boat was accessible. Our guide was absolutely amazing, helped my dad on and off the boat at all times, I can’t thank him enough. Although there’s no guarantee you’ll see turtles, we saw 2 massive Loggerhead turtles. These amazing creatures were just swimming around underneath the boats and popped up for a breather - it was such a great sight to witness these magnificence creatures in their natural habitat. There were plenty of swim stops near the caves as well as an hour to roam on Turtle Island and also grab a snack from the floating Tuck Shop. Thanks again to the guide, he made it so enjoyable and really helped my dad enjoy the trip too!

While we did see a turtle, there was no swimming with them. The majority of our time was spent on a very crowded and not very pretty beach. There was a good amount of time swimming and lots of very nice caves. The staff at zante sun travel were so so so nice and accommodating. There’s probably better options like renting a private boat but considering we paid less than £100 for 3 it was pretty good

Good experience only thing to bear in mind there’s no toilets for 3 hours. We were lucky to see one turtle under the boat through the glass and he came up to the top of the sea. We also did swimming in the caves which was beautiful. It definitely is worth the money. Great trip out and not for too long.
