What people are saying about Corfu Town

What a fantastic day!! This is very good value for being at sea all day, with a 2-hour stop at the gorgeous Paxos island for a swim and ice cream. Then Antipaxos for swimming off the boat - wow, I have never seen turquoise waters like these! Absolutely stunning. And the Blue Caves were also beautiful and unique. Depending on your seat, you may not have shade on the boat deck, so make sure you take a sunhat and suncream. I also took a UV parasol as there basically wasn’t any shade all day for us, so this is one thing to consider if you’re sensitive to the sun. Great staff and DJ, also cheap booze on board - a highly recommended day trip!

It was really a great experience. highly recommended!! boat trip is wonderful, do not forget sunscreen with that bright sun. first sail to lefkimmi. then you go to Paxos where you have 2 hours to do something for yourself. you can have lunch and swim. and then past the Blue caves where you enter to get a closer look. And then you will go to Antipaxos to swim from the boat. and finally you sail back to Corfu harbor with a DJ and Greek dancers. It was amazing!!!
