Great experience! Crew were amazing and so helpful as was the tour guide, couldn't have asked for a better boat to be on with my disabled mother!
A very well organised trip from the moment we checked in on arrival at the resort, collection by Tony in a Viator flagged minibus, the actual trip with guide Sue and back to the resort with Tony.
With regard to the actual trip we were on board a traditional wooden boat and not one of the modern double decked boats. We saw a turtle immediately on boarding before we had even cast off, an hour was spent in the bay looking for more and we were lucky enough to see one up very close. After that we went sightseeing around the bay with a stop of for a swim. Refreshments were available on board if needed. Excellent value for money as the same trip, but on a modern boat, was 50 dearer through the Hotel Rep. Would definitely recommend, it seems the more we use Viator the better they become.
Loved this trip as I love turtles, although the sea was a bit choppy on the day and took a while to find them. We saw a female turtle to start with but didn't stay at the surface long enough to take a photo! We then found a large male turtle and have a videos and photos of him. We then moved onto the caves and were given a chance to swim in the clear blue sea and through a cave. The boat had drinks and snacks aboard too, Sue, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very funny. Highly recommended
Great tour, saw a few turtles which were amazing. Guide made sure everyone got a chance to see them and was very knowledgable about the local wildlife. The swim off the boat was excellent in clear warm waters. A great trip I and #39;ll definitely do again!
Found turtles and they were close enough to film from the boat. Then sailed to Turtle Island and we had a swim stop, then on to the Keri Caves for another swim stop. Then a leisurely sail back to port. Three hour trip. Picked up from hotel and dropped back off by minibus. Everything ran really smoothly and the drivers and tour guides were lovely. My only caution would be that there are strong currents at the Keri caves, so only strong swimmers should swim here as it is also very deep.
We got lucky to spot one big female turtle shortly after boarding! It was a great experience. We then had a swim stop on the beautiful Marathonisi beach, and a second further away near the Keri Caves. I highly recommend to book this tour if you come to Zakyntos.
Such a great tour of the island and seeing the turtles. I would recommend this tour to those are going to visit this island. The tour guide was wonderful.
The overall experience was good but a bit disappointing that we only saw one turtle and 4 boats bulling for the prime spot to see it, the host and staff were really friendly so overall it was nice. We stopped a couple of times to swim in the beautiful clear sea. We are glad we booked this trip before we went, it was better than the trips on offer locally
