Travel to Marathonisi (Turtle Island) aboard a glass-bottom boat on this half-day excursion. After leaving the dock, the crew will try to spot loggerhead turtles in the shallow waters off Laganas Beach. Then it’s on to Turtle Island where you can swim, snorkel, and enjoy the scenery. The atmosphere can be somewhat party-like with many boats and floating food trucks.
Firstly we were 3 hours late being picked up with no communication. Our boat was not glass bottom and the boat driver was swearing and smoking flicking his ash all over the floor in front of my 12 year old. Not the experience we had paid for and the refund they wanted to give us was insulting!!
This trip was highly overrated. We saw two turtles and then went to "Turtle Island" which was hundreds and hundreds of people hopping on and off boats (tour boats and personal boats) and they even had floating food trucks that sold food and ice cream products. It was like a small amusement park without turtles or any type of relaxation at all. At one point there were four boats within 6 feet around this one turtle. I would definitely pass on this trip if I was to go again.
An amazing tour, be sure to check this one out. Tour guide Annette was very lovely and attentive. Zoě and her husband who co-ordinated the boat trip and stops were amazing hosts. Dont miss out on beautiful sights of turtles. You can also relax on the beach and so some swimming in safe stop locations.
