An unbelievable experience we will never forget. The boat is beautiful and Graziella (the guide) and the captain went above and beyond to give us the best trip possible. There was a lovely mix of sight seeing, chillout time, opportunity to go swimming and they provided a full aperitif and prosecco which really gave a lovely finishing touch. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

My husband and I decided to take this cruise after our travel agent recommended it to us. We were so thrilled with our experience. We got lucky to be with one other couple who were the sweetest souls and made our experience that much better. Graziella and Saro are so incredibly lovely and charming--they completely made this experience as amazing as it was. The views were amazing, made better by Graziella's knowledge of the island. The boat is kept up meticulously well and we loved having the snacks they provided toward the end of our tour, after we were done swimming. My husband and I are on our honeymoon and they toasted us with prosecco which was such a beautiful gesture. Highly, highly recommend this tour, independently owned by a wonderful wife and husband team.

This was the most fantastic experience. 2 hours was perfect. The hosts own and operate the boat which is very modern and comfortable. Graciella was wonderful in making all 6 guests feel welcome and her husband ( sorry I have forgotten his name ) was a masterful boat driver. Entered a blue grotto cave with no issues.
