Over 30 Years
I’ve known Captain Andreas since 1987, aka Kotzinis to his friends, coz of his red head, he is without doubt one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, greeting every guest with pleasure aboard his new beautiful glass bottom boat.  His captaincy is exemplary with over 30 years experience at the helm, he glides his boat along this coastline like no other!

The Boat
Immaculately kept, the top deck is the place to relax and top up the tan or dive off the platform at one of the swim stops.  On the lower deck is a fully stocked bar serving your fav tipple, fresh juices, sandwiches, hot dogs, BBQ hamburgers, Ice creams, and offering shaded relief from the heat.  Down on the lower deck the toilets and two small glass portholes so you can see how close this Captain gets you to the rocks, under the waterline.

Morning & Afternoon Cruises
Captain Andreas takes you along the coast for a 2 hour 30 minute mini cruise, first as far as you can go to the UN line to see the Ghost City of Famagusta, where you’ll learn about the history of what happened and why it’s still empty after over 40 years, and it’s told in 3 languages, English, Russian and French, brilliant !

Rock Bumping
Then its out to open sea for a leisurely cruise to the most idyllic beach in Cyprus, Konnos Bay, gliding in and out of every cove towards Cape Greco, getting so close to the rocks at Shark Cave you’ll have to push the boat off the rocks.  Then almost bumping in to Lovers Bridge where you’ll feel the love, are you ready to propose ?

Swim Stop
Finishing off with a swim stop at the world famous Blue Lagoon, with it’s crystal clear aqua blue sea, and the chance to use the boat’s gear to do a little snorkelling.  Flotation devices are also available and a there’s lovely low platform to dive off the back of the boat.

Sunset Trip
3 hours of pure delight, sailing from Nissiotis Jetty late afternoon, heading off towards Ayia Napa, skipping in and out of the bays.  The cruise includes pizza, champagne, wine, juice and fresh fruit.  On the way you’ll have an amazing evening listening to the latest music, dancing, swimming in the beautiful sea at sunset and for those of you brave enough you can even try jumping off the cliffs!

Mermaid Cruise
And for beautiful Mermaids and fearsome Pirates, they also offer the enchanting Mermaid Cruise every Saturday, sailing at 5.00 pm.  You’ll be able to swim with real live mermaids … For more information and bookings send them a message or call Tel: 0035799586726 or check out their Facebook page
