We had a great time with captain Ron. He was was well experienced and very informative. We were undecided weather to go with a big people carrier or a smaller run tour and we were delighted we picked Ron as the whole experience from start to finish was excellent and both my husband and myself felt that Ron made the trip about us and what we wanted to see and learn. We can not recommend Seaking Adventures enough

This boat trip for us did not happen at all.
We booked our tickets for a 2-hour walk, two days in advance.
At the time of departure, it turned out that our reservation has mysteriously disappeared from the company's list.
It turned out that the man behind the desk completely mistakenly transferred the list of passengers for the boat from the list of reservations.
The staff did not even try to apologize for our failed afternoon
Complete and absolute lack of professionalism.
People, be very careful with this company because it's too possible to be disappointed.

We took two hour trip with glasbottom boat. I expected sitting in the boat and a little swimming. We got much more. Very nice guide who told interesting things about island of Theodorou and sea arond it. While swimming guide also picked up octopussies and another sealivings from the sea. Now I know that octopussy has three hearts and nine brains. All the living features picked from the sea, was released back there.

Boat was very clean. There where lots of slippers, mask and snorkkels, so you don’t have to buy equipment of your own to enjoy clear waters during swimming on this cruise.

Safety on board was important for the staff and safety features where taken seriously.

If you want to have a nice day at the sea, I totally remommend this company.

We found the boat trip a quit dissappointment after reading the reviews on tripadviser. The guide didn't tell very much about the island and when she told something it was in greek. When the boat first stopped there was an greek explanation of what we were going to do. We were in front of the boat so we couldn't go ask directly for a translation. After we asked she told the plan in english. But in the meantime we had missed al the information about the island. The snorkling was fun but the two stops were like 20 m apart from each other so not very suprising and different. I would go look for another daily boat cruise in the neighbourhood. If you do want to go with this boat bring some water or drinks because you have to pay for that, only the boose is for free.

I've returned to Porto plantanas beach resort several times and have experienced Sea King boat trip on each occasion. There are 2 or 3 hour trips around a small nature reserve island,snorkelling, swimming. A talk about the island, a little bit of history regarding the 2nd world war & Crete as well as a few sea creatures introduced by the Captain !! Good fun all round , I would highly recommend this trip with Sea King . Before booking check with Seaking advisor they have a small kiosk based just in front of the hotel re: winds as sea can be a little rough on some days. I can sometimes get seasick so if this is a problem for anyone in your group then just check & Seaking will arrange on a day when all is calm. Worth every penny , the beauty of Greece at its best with enthusiast , kind, friendly staff! What's not to like
