What our clients say

Great day out on the water with Captain Tasos.  He made my boys feel like they were his family.  Highly recommend this trip.  Had a great time on the water.

We took a private charter with Tasos during our stay in Plakias and it was one of the highlights of our entire Italy/Greece vacation! Tasos and the staff were incredibly easy to communicate with, especially given that we made plans last minute. We used the website and communicated via email and within minutes we were able to get our questions answered and book the full-day Treasure of the South Tour. The entire day and experience was awesome and effortless. We visited places that would have taken hours and hours to get to by car (or not at all, given most of the places we stopped were only accessible by boat or an incredibly long hike in the heat)! It was a great experience for my family, as Tasos made us feel at home and literally gave us a personal tour of the south coast, going to remote beaches and really cool caves to explore and swim in/near. He even took time to take pictures for us in certain areas, as we couldn't do that and swim/explore. The entire time was fun and relaxing (and informative)! I highly recommend Tasos and Plakias Boat Tours and would most definitely use them again! Google Review link

Our family of 5 (4 adults + 1 child, aged 7) booked this tour rather last-minute to take advantage of the warmer weather during our holiday on Crete. We found Plakias Boat Tours was one of the only tour operators in the area and the website sold the trip. After a quick enquiry and an even quicker response late at night, we had the 8-hour “treasures of the south coast” tour booked the very next day! Captain Frank was great, made the trip a lot of fun. The stops were all magical in their own way. It is late October so we can’t blame Frank for the “refreshing” water temperature! But the Sun, hospitality and drinks and snacks made it all worth it. We really enjoyed the clay skin treatment at white beach. Loutro was a very quaint, perfect Greek village. The snorkeling was lovely, all gear provided. We all had a great time, all for a reasonable price…and we would highly recommend this tour! Google Review link

Great fun day out.  We went to mud beach, Loutro and Marmara.  A brilliant fun day.  Well done Captain!

Patric Stone

Booked this trip with a group of friends.  Had a super day.  Captain knew some great spots to stop at.  Had fun on mud beach, covering ourselves with white mud then washing it off in the clear blue sea. Swam into some beautiful caves where the light shone through like diamonds.  Sea was like silk, so clear ad blue.  Loutro is very quaint and you are able to do a bit of shopping or sample a refreshing ice-cream.  Would highly recommend.

Hugo James

Breath-taking views.  Sailed and swan into some caves and enjoyed the beautiful crystal clear waters.

A trip not to be missed!  Had the best time ever.  Will be booking another boat trip with Tasos.

Took my 14 year old for a fishing trip with Tasos.  Had a fun relaxing time and a great learning experience for my son.  Laughed and joked all day.

Thank you Captain Tasos for an incredible evening of fishing.  Tasos is a total expert and knows the best spots

We had a great time.  First time sea fishing and Captain was an awesome teacher.  Caught my first fish!

Very knowledgeable and friendly crew.  Great trip for the boys.  Would highly recommend

Never thought I would want to go fishing with men.  Wow!!  What a fun time I had catching squid at night.  Laughed so much.  An experience to try.  Topped off by a beautiful sunset.

We had a wonderful day out on the Fish Finder. Visiting hidden bays, amazing caves and even bathed in volcanic mud! Loutro is a lovely village to stop for lunch. Frank made the day extra special sharing his extensive knowledge of the area with us. Highly recommend this company!

Fab day out on the Fish Finder! Our skipper, Frank, was the perfect host, very knowledgeable, really made our day. Highlights were the mud bath and lazy lunch in Loutro, swimming through the caves and exploring. Will definitely book with Plakias Boat Tours again!

I just want to say yesterday was one of the best experiences me (Colin) and Mel have ever had whilst being on holiday. From start to finish we were looked after very well by Captain Frank. The places Frank took us to were spectacular, we would have never found these places ourselves. The highlight for me was when we went to a little cove (white beach) and had a natural spa where we covered ourselves in clay slip!! Frank will hopefully post the pictures on here for us. We later stopped for dinner in Loutro, and had some fine cuisine with an amazing view. I can highly recommend that if you visit Plakias, you should consider this boat trip, we went on the black rib which was great fun and really comfortable. Hope to return and perhaps go out on Captain Liz next time. Thanks to team Plakias Boat Tours. #Amazing.

Such a great experience with Kostas and Manolis on Captain Liz. We did the four hour tour which gave us the chance to explore a completely empty beach and spend time snorkeling in a bay. It felt so relaxed and there was no pressure to get going anywhere or back. But the best bit is the private boat and feeling like rockstars for a few hours. Plenty of drinks and snacks to go around too. Thanks and enjoy the season!
