    This was our second booking for this experience because we enjoyed the first one (two days before) so much! We were lucky to be again with Captain Mike and Emma (our instructor). As I said in my first review they gave us all the relevant information, provided us with water and fresh fruit, and made sure we had a great time. We all received a mask with snorkel and fins, plus we could choose to have a diving suit. At the second spot we could pick among various water sports and this time we went for stand up paddling. Even more fun than the first time!

    First timer here, LOVED this outfit.

    We had caring assistance for three of us who were snorkeling for the first time. The staff knew their stuff and were very encouraging, all while keeping track of the more experienced in the group. An added bonus that was unexpected, was they took great pictures of us in the water and underwater and posted for all of us to download. We visited three sites and had a wonderful time. I definitely will be using them again on our next visit to Crete!

    Apart from snorkeling, the boat trip was ok. Apart from a few small fish, you didn't see much while snorkeling, no colorful corals, no cave. There was no wetsuit so it got cold over time. There were 3 stops, there were no big differences in the water. The promised photos came a day later by email. You can do it, it was a nice trip on the sea.
