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.

Do not expect to see turtles for more than 1-2 seconds, as it rises to the surface to breathe. The most beautiful part of the tour is visiting the stone springs near Keri caves and swimming next to them. Stopping in the Marathonsi Island on the beach of the turtles is a very good idea for a swimming in blue waters.

The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The value for money was fantastic. It was the best way to see Turtle island and Keri caves. We loved every minute! One minor point, the boat is advertised as glass bottomed; it had a small glass square in the centre. The guide said we wouldn’t need a glass bottom to see the turtles, he was right! In the current climate of socially distancing, this wasn’t strictly adhered too either. However, we would definitely do this tour again.

Nice, but no turtles

The tour could not take place on the planned day due to bad weather. However, an alternative date or refund was suggested to us. Communication was very good. Nice boat tour to the island and caves. Unfortunately we did not see any turtles, but the captain was very busy. Didn't have a glass-bottom boat, but a small boat with fewer people, which we found more pleasant.
