Soak into the magnificent blue of the water and sky.

This tour activity was great! Tour guide George was very nice too! Always ready to help us take pictures.. Me and my friend took this Tour and it was worth it. Took a lot of pictures. unfortunately we were not informed that this year they prohibited going to the shipwreck. We were looking forward to get close and enjoy taking pictures with the shipwreck. But it was still okay because when we took the boat, it took us close to the shore so we can at least take a closer picture of the shipwreck while on board.. Still a good experience nonetheless.. ☺️

It was a very nice tour, we saw a lot of beautiful things. It is especially recommended in the low season (October) when it is nice and quiet everywhere.

incredible experience with many interesting stops - shipwreck from both the cliffs and water, sea caves, olive oil factory. fantastic tour guides!
