The boat tour was beautiful. We were picked up directly at the hotel and brought to the boat, totally uncomplicated and super organized. There was very good and still cheap food and drink on the boat, a DJ played suitable music. First we were on a beach in Paxos, where you could swim and eat something. Then we went on to the caves, here the captain steered the ship into the grotto with millimeter precision and it was breathtaking. Then came the highlight, we drove to a completely secluded bay on antipaxos where the water was so clear that you could see the bottom in the door. Crystal-clear turquoise water and white beach, you could swim and snorkel from the reef into the water or over ladders. On the way back a dolphin even accompanied us for a short time. It was really, really great and we would recommend everyone to do it.

unique and special .... swim in the turquoise blue sea. everything is as described; simple but therefore also beautiful. There was a very happy travel companion who spoke in several languages about the sights and the great surroundings. Funny but not pushy. Finally there was a wonderful surprise; a Greek couple who tried to dance with us all ;-) Sirtaki and at the end of the return trip motivated us all to start a funny polonaise (voluntarily) over the whole boat ... top event

.... a sea trip that's funny, actually worth it, if you love wind and waves I can only recommend it, romantic, the small village with super good "Greek" food in the secluded garden, the grottoes into which the big boat drives, Bathing in a bay with crystal clear turquoise water, a beautiful experience….
