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.

It was a great trip! We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the port, where our captain Stella welcomed us on the boat. We were fortunate to spot the first turtle 5 minutes into the cruise. After a few minutes of watching the turtle, we went for a ride around the coastline. We had a 20-minute stop for swimming. After, we headed to the turtle-shape island Marathonisi to see the caves and for another swimming stop (1h), this time at the beach. We still had a few minutes left on our way back, so Stella showed us Laganas beach. We were very lucky to spot another turtle! When the cruise was over, we were dropped off at our hotel. Our guide Stella told us a lot about islands and her skill behind the stere was very impressive!

Calm and well, swimming in calm and beautiful areas. The glass bottom thing is really a bit useless because you can't see anything. They are two small glass plates. You see a turtle that is a bit cornered between 4 boats and that's it. I don't know, overwhelming for her but that's already very personal. correct experience. You see the Keri but you don't swim in them, they take you somewhere else to swim and then to a beach.
