The snorkeling was amazing and great value for money. Dimitris was a really great teacher as I had never done any snorkeling before. He was really knowledgeable about the area and the environment and I got to see loads of amazing animals and even hold some. It is definitely a must do activity if you are near Athens and the area is lovely to stay in if you have the time. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Awesome trip! The snorkeling was beautiful and the boat ride was really fun. We snorkeled along Marathon Cape and saw some interesting creatures that Dimitris pointed out to us. Then we went to a beach in a national park with a cool and rare pine forest. We were the only ones on the whole beautiful sandy beach and it was a great place to warm up after the snorkeling. Easy to reach Nea Makri from Athens with the Ktel bus. Highly recommend for a day trip.

Snorkeling was so much fun, we got to see lots of things including sea urchins, octopus, and lots of smaller fish.

Snorkelling - what a wonderful trip- the instructor was friendly and helpful but also let you do what you wanted, he guided us to see some amazing wildlife and all in all it was a 10/10 day.
