Reach early at one of the most famous beaches of the island and enjoy the surroundings without the crowds. Although the beach is closed for safety reasons, because the area is still prone to landslides, the captain will go very close to the shore for you to snap some photos of the rusty hull of the commercial shipwreck, named, M/V Panagiotis, which grounded onshore in 1980 and lies in the middle of the white sandy beach. Then, head to the blue caves characterized by their vibrant sapphire color cast by the sunlight shimmering through the water and being reflected into the caves.

It was an incredible trip, the captain was super helpful, with wonderful music!! He took photos of everyone, with the best angles, he carried our cell phones in a waterproof bag every time we went down to a beach. It was an incredible and unforgettable 3 hours, the boat was excellent, the service and the staff, everyone was top notch! We visited several caves, caves and beaches, we had 3 diving stops. I would definitely go back and I recommend it to everyone!!

Our captain has his boat very well under control and he always sailed very deep into the caves. Really an experience. He also left the stops up to the guests, which was always enough for great shots (drone flights are also possible). Unfortunately, from the end of September you are no longer allowed to go on the beach to the shipwreck.

It was incredible. The weather was fantastic. So many shades of blue. Spectacular views, warm sea and nice swims. We caught the last trip of the season and we are glad we did. Highly recommended!

Great activity, the guide was very nice. The English explanations are easy to understand! The activity lasted 3 hours but we didn't see the time passing! The different caves are superb!

It was a great experience. The tour does what it promises. Great guide, great bays, enough time for swimming and photos, great price!
