Besides swimming in crystal waters, learning about sea life, to respect and to love our friends living in the sea with which we are sharing our world, thanks to our great hosts Fabio and Vasili. Delicious buffet in the boat. Not to be missed.

Really great experience. A very different boat trip focused on everything from history to marine biology to shipwrecks. To snorkel with a loggerhead turtle was unreal. Lunch was fantastic and plentiful. Fabio and Vasily were considerate, interesting and fun. Give it a go.
