We were recommended this by a fellow holiday maker and it did not disappoint. The boat, a converted sailing boat that used to transport charcoal, was spotlessly clean and had plenty of shade. Fabio and Sylvie worked very well together and we're very knowledgeable about...More

A brilliant day out. Fab and Rob are excellent hosts and really help you to see and understand the local sealife, geology and history. If you only do one excursion in Kefalonia the is the one to pick.

Can anyone recommend if this would be a suitable trip for two young children (5 and 7). My 7 year old can swim - but never tried in deep sea, and my five year old can't really swim yet. Will she be able to access the beach on stops and play/ paddle? It looks like a great trip with brilliant reviews.

Absolutely yes. The boat gets very close to the shore, easy paddling depth and has steps. The guys bring any interesting finds on board to put into a viewing tank so the young ones will be able to enjoy seeing the sealife... More

We will be in Fiscardo in July 2017 for 2 weeks, and we would definitely like to join an excursion. How far in advance of our holiday do we need to book?
