      Loved this tour!
      Absolutely loved this boat tour! The water we swam in was gorgeous and so blue. The staff were incredibly helpful and the boat was easy to move about. It is a long day on the boat but so worth it for all you see and do! Cannot recommend enough!!

      Worth it!
      I highly recommend this boat trip. I went with my husband and two kids (10 and 12). Swimming and snorkeling at Kato Koufonisi and at Rina Cave were so enjoyable. Ano Koufonisi was beautiful, with water of the most vibrant colors of turquoise, a great beach in town, and a nice town to explore. The boat crew was very friendly and safety conscious. The boat, while it carried many people and was somewhat crowded, was still comfortable. There was lots of shade on the boat if you wanted it. The lunch the crew provided was tasty.

      Great boat trip
      What a great day out! Its a long day 930am to 7pm but the 3 stops were stunning- so well organised and a really tasty lunch, amazingly prepared on the boat! The little island of Koufonisia was so beautiful and there's a lovely boutique shop by the beach selling locally made jewellery. The staff on the boat were so friendly and really good at letting you know what timings were and where we were going. The only downside is it's quite crowded on the boat so not easy to sunbathe unless you're at the front but apart from that it was an excellent trip 👌

      The views were incredible. We went to a beautiful beach on koufonisia and also got some time to explore the island. The food we got was really good and fresh. Well worth the price!

      Unforgettable experience
      My friends and I had an unforgettable day on this cruise! We took the boat from Naxos, all the way to Koufonissi (which is a spectacularly beautiful island) and the Rina Cave. The crew was so fun and welcoming. They played music, they gave us information on important landmarks and even provided snorkels and floaties to go in the caves. It is worth every penny to see the beautiful scenery and landscape of the Islands of Greece. Would highly recommend!

      The best experience of my life!
      The whole experience was perfect till the last minute. As soon as we reached Kato Koufonisi, we were swimming in the blue-green waters with the smell of barbecue right next to us. After that, we head to the next destination, Ano Koufonisi where we had plenty of time to explore it. Last but not least, the Rina's cave was definitely the highlight of the day! On the way back, some dolphins were our company for a while, something that let us all speechless! The crew was always there for us explaining everything and made sure that this trip will remain unforgettable! It is by far the best thing I've ever experienced and I would definitely recommend to everyone who comes to Naxos to spend a day exploring those wonderful places with that wonderful crew of Jason

      Great boat trip and swim stops
      Loved it. There's enough shade on the boat. The sea and Naxos coast was beguiling. The island of Koufonissia was lovely -- crystal clear sea. And Rina Cave was well worth it. And the BBQ was delicious. (Let them know in advance if you're veggie. I didn't but luckily as I was the only veggie on the boat they could give me a lovely lunch but had there been a few of us, maybe not). Highly recommended.

      What a great day
      This is a must. Staff were absolutely fantastic and Anna was exceptional. Gave us plenty of swimming time, water, wine and the lunch was a char grill. Plenty of shade if you don’t like the sun

      Koufonssia and rina cave boat trip
      What an amazing experience, Ana and the crew kept us informed the whole way round the trip. The food was really tasty and plentiful as well as as much drink that you would like. The trip itself was out of this world far exceeding what we had thought we would get. The stop over for a couple of hours in Koufonissia was a perfect amount of time to see the turquoise water and enjoy the beach. Then the cave experience we didn’t expect at all the kids jumped off and into the water which rounded off a perfect trip. All in all I can’t recommend this trip enough for anyone who wants a whole day out and not to get bored but to also make memories. A++++++

    I want to start off by saying we were so excited to go on this trip. We were on the island for my
    Wedding and had 34 adults and 7 children with us on this trip.

    Off the bat, the boat was packed like sardines!

    Also, the trip there and back was longer than it needed to be because on how slow the boat went. Regardless, this was the least of my worries.

    We get to the first stop which has a beach area. We were parked sooo far that it was impossible to get to the beach on the time before being called back. Left to dip in real quick and get out.

    Food was good and a great amount was serviced. Though, in the description stated there would be local wine included. We were serviced random box wine and only available during lunch hour. There was no bar (as mentioned) and beers were 3 euros.

    At the second stop, we were given 2:30 hours and left at the port where there was a beach and a small town. Not really much to do. No umbrellas or chair for purchase as well.

    Last stop was Rina Cave. I was so excited for this as there was also cliff jumping. Again, we were parked so far and only given 45 min on this location that by the time you got to the cave, you had to start swimming back.

    We were given so much time for stop 2 leaving us with nothing on the last stop.

    The crew members were very nice, but if you have family or looking to have a little bit of fun and letting loose, this is NOT the trip for you.

    If you like being squashed like sardines in 35 degree heat with a stinking sweaty ass in your face then this is the tour for you. My daughter and I had the pleasure of watching everyone go to the bathroom through the open window.
    I would pay the extra and go with a better tour.
    We ended up getting a ferry back from Koufonissia as could not bear the journey back.
    The food is actually ok, and the staff are nice, but the boat is packed, filthy with not enough shade. The WiFi was good 😂

    The boat is a diamond, we have been there at 15/8 it was full booked but we had a great time. Very good welcome, with coffee ☕ and smiled faces.

My husband is a little bit difficult as a person but he was really enjoyed all of that. So, thats a big job for Toni.🫣😂

    This was a real highlight of our stay on Naxos. Fantastic boat, the staff were excellent, and the itinerary was just great. Swimming in a sea cave will be one forever memory, but the islands were also memorable, and the barbecue food was really good! Not too busy or raucous, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Highly recommended.

    Really lovely day trip, with plenty of opportunities to swim from the boat and see parts of the islands we wouldn't otherwise have seen. The crew were brilliant and were so welcoming and enthusiastic all day.

    I didn’t really know what to expect from this tour - reviews seemed pretty mixed - so I was pleasantly surprised with this little day excursion.

    The staff on the boat were very friendly. The ride to our first stop took a while and the sea was quite rough. I’m not sure if that was simply a factor of the weather or if it is always like that. But we were warned we would get wet if we stayed in the front of the boat and they offered to take everyone’s bags inside. The rough sea was rather a highlight for some of my friends! We were splashed over and over and laughed every time. Those who didn’t want to get splashed could go to the back of the boat.

    It seems the boat holds about 60 passengers, so it’s a large group, but small enough that throughout the day you befriend some of the other passengers.

    We could snorkel at the first stop and they provided the goggles and snorkels. They cooked lunch while we swam. Lunch was a pleasant surprise - the meat was amazing! They provided a vegetarian option for the non meat eaters.

    Next up was upper Koufonissi. This had been marketed to us as “the Hawaii of Greece,” which I knew couldn’t be accurate given the lack of lush green vegetation in this part of Greece. But what I did experience was a tiny island that is like the rustic Greece you see in postcards. Beautiful turquoise water, fine sand, fishing boats, white buildings with blue accents, stone roads, kept up just enough to look presentable, yet rustic. There is a lovely beach right near the port and we spent our time swimming there.

    The next stop was the cave, which was a really cool experience - I’d never swam into a cave before!

    All in all, it was a fun experience. If you are looking to do something different from spending all day at the beach, this is a fun diversion that still keeps you in the sun and water!
