Consider it as a cruise with the turtles as a bonus

Enjoyed the guide, and the sites and the two turtles we encountered. Should've brought good beers and food with us.

Omg our trip was amazing, top class service from pick up in the aircon minibus to the coffee on the boat, we did see turtles and it was controlled by the boat crews that they were not crowded by boats and safe all the time we had 2 swim times of 30 minutes in different locations that was fantastic. The best trip ever well done to all

Felt like chasing helpless turtles

tour guide was great and cave swimming was excellent, but this tour made me and my friends uncomfortable in many ways. When a turtle is spotted boats swarm around the turtle (3-5 boats at a time.) The boats continue to follow one turtle for extended time. I noticed that the turtles progressively attempt to stay under the water longer and longer to avoid the gawking and get the boats to leave them be. In comparison to other boats this one was relatively respectful, as it kept a fair distance from the turtles, but I would not recommend this to anyone who cares deeply about animals.

A good tour but better ways to see turtles
Paradise52254548042

The tour itself was good and well organised. We booked it before we went on holiday to ensure we had something lined up but having spent a week in Zakynthos in hindsight I wouldn't have booked this tour. There are better ways to see the turtles. We swam in the sea at Kalamaki beach and saw turtles, and hired a glass-bottomed kayak for 10 euro and saw a turtle at the same spot. We did see on a turtle on our boat trip, but I felt uneasy about the distress to the turtle with another boat also crowding it and a lot of fuel and fumes seemingly polluting its natural environment. The stops to swim on this tour were great but you can do that on lots of smaller boat trips that don't stress out the wildlife.

I would defiantly recommend this trip, not to busy or rushed. Time to spot the turtles then off to the coves for 2 swim stops in beautiful surroundings. Then head back with views of the coast. Tour guide was really nice to.

Picked up from hotel, which was arranged via email a couple of days before and was able to use mobile ticket so no need to print out, which was convenient. Friendly driver took us from Tsilivi to Laganos. Very knowledgeable local team and Sue was brilliant. Not guaranteed to see a turtle but our team were fab and ensured we did, amazing to see. Really well worth it and highly recommended.
