Boat trip and beach BBQ

Sandra Allison

i have recently been to Corfu, and went on the thursday boat trip. However i can't seem to find the photographs, and i wondered if anyone had the facebook page where i could find them. It was not with theo's bbq boat company, but another. It wasn't a party boat either..... any help appreciated, thanks!

we went recently on the BBQ/boat trip, we were 2ad & 1 ch.the trip on the boat is lovely and stopping off for a swim is great, on the way back you stop at Kalamaki beach which is also great, however at this point it starts to seriously decline, you are expected to pay 7 euros for 2 beds & 1 umbrella bearing in mind you have already paid more than 60 euros for a family of 3.When lunch is served you have to queue up in the blazing sun for about 10 mins by a seating area at the back of the beach which is filthy and covered in dead flies and wasps with only a few tables with shade the rest are in the open which means you are fighting a losing battle against insects to eat your food,however they are welcome to it as the food is atrocious and inedible, in retrospect I'm glad we did'nt eat it, especially our son ,as god knows what we would have caught!By the time you return to your resort you are starving ,especially if you have kids ,and you need to go to the nearest restaurant to feed yourselves.

All in all vastly over-priced as the food is an integral part of trip and price and it is disgusting!
the agents who sell this trip should pay an unannounced visit when they're serving the food I bet they would'nt eat it or sit in that area for a second.
What I would recommend is ,hire a boat and pack a cool bag with food and cool drinks, it probably would'nt work out that much more and eat you food on board where there is a good breeze and no can book this trip at NSP in roda or Castaways but pass my comments on as I think they are blissfully unaware of the rubbish they are selling.

click to enlargeWhat a fantastic day out!!! Despite hangovers, we soon were having water fights, and Theo ended up with torn shorts! Food was excellent and loads of it, and drink too! The swimming was ace, as well as the diving, bombing and belly flopping contests! Would definitely recommend this to anyone, but girls beware, tie your bikini strings in double bows!! Well worth going!!

this boat trip really isn't worth the money atall. me and my four pals paid 28 or 30 and totally didn't think it was worth it. our boat was a quiet one which was actually not bad cause i was meatily hungover, but we didn't get told anything about the scenery or anything and when we got to the beach, it was really overcrowded and boring - we could've sunbathed on the normal beach and not paid the money.


i wouldn't really class it as a bbq, cause all u get is a bit of chicken and some salad - bad if your starving. after a boring period on the beach, we headed back and were meant to do champagne diving and go to the blue lagoon, of which we done neither! we were told the sea was too choppy for the blue lagoon and there was one bottle of cheap s**t champagne passed around the boat deck. they dropped us off an hour early, 4 o'clock instead of 5.

not terrible, but definetely not worth the money. crazy speed boat is a million times better.
kavos ruled though - be back next year  xxx

Me and my mum went on the boat trip and beach BBQ. The only thing i didnt like was the coach trip. it took over an hour to get to the harbour and i cant even remember where we were lol. (I had too many drinks the night before so i wasnt feeling to well.)~

So when we got on the boat we both already felt sick. And when we setted off it was a complete nightmare. The sea was really choppy that day. so it wasnt good for people who get seasick especially for me. The toliets were okay. The ladies toliet was blocked. So we had to use the mens. So people who were seasick and desperate for the loo had to fight for the one toliet. One women was throwing up in the sink. a little boy was throwing up in the blocked ladies loo. It was like a massacre.
We were suppose to go in the caves but never did. but i wasnt too bothered about that as i was desparte to get off the boat.
The secluded beach made up for it though. it was beautiful. Perfect relaxing and sun tanning place.
The BBQ was good. although my mum didnt get to eat much because she was busy being chased by wasps lol.
If you are near the water sunabathing, watch out for the sea coming in and soaking you through. as we got an unexpected wetting and my camera and phone just missed from being ruined. although my towel was soaked through.
It wasnt too bad coming back as it was quicker.

i wouldnt go on this trip again but it is worth the money to go on it. Just beaware if you get seasick that the waters are not always calm.


hia aris if you get this please email me !!hope you are ok and i cant wait to come back on the boat again it was the best!!!xxx

Captain Theo's Boat trip.    Having read some of the review here we were quite wary, and I mentioned them to the rep (this was the 1 trip we booked with the rep) - she was aware of the bad ones, and said that this is why they only use Theo now.

We had an excellent trip. I can't remember the exact cost. i think it worked out about 60 in UK money for the 3 of us for the full day. That included transport there by air conditioned, clean coach. It was well worth the money.  Be warned that Theo however is a bit of a letch, but much to my wifes relief, he likes "The Sexy Mamas" as he calls them - i.e the over 50 ladies.

He talks about this almost constantly on the PA system on the trip, but is never rude, so don't worry about the kids. A couple of older ladies on our trip said they did not really like him keep cuddling them but were embarrassed to be the ones who said "no".
Anyway, the guy is crackers as is half the crew. Imagine a band of friendly mad Pirates (if there could be such a thing) and you've got the right picture.
As a sailor myself, I was wondering about taking my family on a boat abroad after all the horror stories you read and hear. However, even to my trained eye, the boat was very well maintained. There were plenty of safety devices and flotation - in fact there were enough life jackets for about 3 each!  I could see that a LOT of time is spent maintaining this boat - I noticed that even the little things were oiled/cleaned or whatever.  Beyond the banter he's a good skipper, and I noticed later that no one had felt sea-sick - I think that part of keeping folk busy may be for that reason (it often works well as anyone experienced at sea will tell you), and if it is, then that tells you something about how good this guy is at his job. 
The crew were lovely with my young daughter. The beach we went to was on the Greek mainland somewhere, as for reasons we never found out, there was a change of itinerary. We were told it was because of the swell, but I know that was not actually true. Either way, it did not matter, in fact, I think it was a bonus as it turned out.
The beach we went to was lovely and sandy. There were some loungers (3 only) and water sports. Some people went up on the par ascending thing. Most enjoyed it, but two people fell over on takeoff and cut open their knees and legs quite severely.  I imagine the rest of their holiday was ruined. This is a risk you take doing this stuff of course.  To be fair, I must point out that the water sports are nothing to do with the boat trip company of course, and what happened was probably not the water sports companies fault either.
The BBQ was very good. Lots to eat and well cooked. They also catered for veggies. The stay at the beach was just long enough. We were lucky because as we left, another cruise boat arrived with an 18-30 contingent on board carrying boxes and boxes of beer and hanging off the boat shouting, swearing and screaming (sometimes I'm embarrassed to be English - can't we get these people to pretend their  from somewhere else?). 
Next we went to a deserted cove and swam ashore through beautiful clear water.  So clean, you could see the anchor on the bottom.  Theo thoughtfully got a life jacket out and put it on her, so that my 8 year old daughter could perfectly safely swim that distance (like I said, a good thoughtful skipper underneath the banter). This was a fantastic experience, and a first for almost all of us. One of those things I'll remember forever is swimming side by side through this beautiful cove with my wife and young daughter. Magic! 


Boat trip from Ipsos? CAPTAIN HOMERS is the one to get. Great food, Great Value for money, fun day out, loadz to do and the owners are awesome! I went four times last year, check out the caves the are ace! Aris is a Legend!!!


K T           

One of the best trips!  The key to getting a good beach is to shop around for the agents with the best deal (not neccessarily the cheapest), we found there were lots of deals.  The second thing is to try and go on a trip with a named beach, rather than just sandy beach.  We went to Kalamaki beach and it was fabulous .  If you find the same beach name poping up again and again then use a travel agent who goes to that beach as there is likely a reason why they all go there!

My final advise to anyone going on the boat trip is JUMP OFF THE BOAT! On our trip the boat stopped in deep water to let us have a swim.  Our boat was pretty high off the water (around 9-10ft) but if you are an ok swimmer then my advise would be jump!! The sea is fantastic and the jump gives you quite a rush!
I was there last year and I am going back again this year!!! 10 out of 10!

Yep the boat trips are awesome! 9 girls in my group on the boat n it was just fun and games all day! beach was nice and the BBQ was pretty good! Diving off the top of the boat was great - didnt realise how cold the water would be tho!!! Oh well here are pics of us gurls from the boat trip! enjoy!!!

Sue H           

  The trip we went on they called it Beach Day.  We were very dissapointed.  Not much to look at through the glass bottom boat and it was too cold to swim at the two places that apparently people usually do (not their fault, it was late season).  When we arrived at the beach for the bbq we were again dissapointed as the beach was all pebbles and painful to walk on without shoes, but the sun was shining and it was very hot.  Also there were a lot of wasps and huge ants on the beach.  The bbq was awful one piece of chicken and salad, no other choice.  My was daughter was ill that night (she blames the food).  We didn't enjoy it, we felt we had wasted a day of our holiday.

Paul H           

we went on the beach bbq from sidari. The boat trip was excellent with good views of Paelo and the coastline.  The beach was very pebbley so would recommend good footwear. The sea was crystal clear and good for swimming, but watch out for the jellyfish! The food was good quality and overall an enjoyable day was had by everyone.  Would recommend to anybody and good value for money.

Matty L

click to enlarge We went on the Glass Bottomed boat to paleokastritsa and bbq on paradise beach which was a combination of 3 trips and was a bargain at 19.90 euros each booked through Nostos Travel on Roda Beach. The bus took u to paleo where u got on the boat where the guides were brilliant and told u about the old fortress, showed u the pretty coves with stalactites, showed u remains of a sunken german ship and a huge reef thing and let u jump off in this gorgeous bit in the sea which had huge rocks that u could stand on and look down into the deep ocean with snorkels u can see loads of amazing fish. Then u go to Paradise beach which can only be reached by boat and is a suntrap in the curve of mountains. The beach was a mixture of pebbles and sand but the sea was the most beautiful I have ever seen and you have to snorkel underwater its amazing all the fish and life and pretty corals. There is a romantic cove at the side of the beach you can swim around and is completely safe. Loads of umbrellas available on the beach, which is great because otherwise no shade. The BBQ was lovely, a big piece of chicken, greek salad, bread and fruit and of course as much free wine, ouzo, juice and water as you can drink, but u couldnt get us out of the beautiful, crystal clear sea. Definately should do this trip, the beach wasn't busy and the price went down just before we booked it coz it was September and not as busy but was 23.50 before which is still amazing value for unlimited food n drink and visiting a beach u couldnt normally get to. A brilliant worthwhile trip, Thanks!

We went on the castaway cruise which was a bat trip around Paelokastristsa which is soooo beautiful!

The Captain was brilliant with his funny noises "coo coo"! and his history lesson!
Anyway we cruised around the coastline and caught the sights before stopping an pebbled beach and having a BBQ (delish!).
My only comment is that there were not enough parasols for everyone and it was 42 degrees with no shade! The only place to hide from the sun was in the sea and with a pebble beach this is not easy - get a pair of water shoes that will help and make sure you get off the baot quick for a parasol!
Overall the trip was great but a bit overpriced - you may get a better deal if you don't book it through your rep!

Kim and steven -           

Think we went on a different BBQ cruise to most people here, but there are a few.  We went from Sidari (through Vlasseros Travel, much cheaper than the reps!) on a coach to Paleokastritsa, then on a brand new glass-bottomed boat to Paradise Beach.  The boat was great, with the 'boat boy' (his words!) George, who was friendly.  The captain stopped to allow you to look at shipwrecks and shoals of fish.  We went to the Vinti Caves with stalactites, then on to Paradise Beach, a secluded beach you can only get to by boat.  There is a hundred-foot cliff and a shingle beach.  It gets very hot, though there are plenty of drinks (soft drinks and alcohol).  One note, take trainers or well-fitting shoes, the beach is hot enough to burn and the pebbles get in your sandals, making it pretty uncomfortable.  The BBQ was delicious and you had about 4 hours on the beach to swim in the sea, dive off the boat and sunbathe.  Umbrellas are provided, but take plenty of suncream becasue it's that hot.  By the way, Paradise Beach is one of the locations in For Your Eyes Only and really is paradise!  This excurion was the highlight of our holiday, wish we were still there!

I went to corfu for the first time a week a go and i am definately returning next year. Captain Homer's boat trip was the best experience of the holiday.Sophia,Captain Homer and there son Aristottle(the good looking 1 on the boat) were very friendly and made our holiday more enjoyable.The food was exellent and the swim at the caves was brilliant.We'll definately see u next year.

Lin & andy H           


Andrea J           

Best day of our holiday! Sit at the front of the boat and dangle your legs in the surf! Beach was lovely, peeps were moaning they had to pay 3 Euros for sun beds, the BBQ was the most delicious thing I had ever tasted, mind you it was 2.00pm by the time we had eaten and I had no brekkie! Roast chicken, salad, tzaziki and bread and loads of cheap plonk!

Blue Lagoon is beautiful, I didnt want to leave, if you have a hangover jump off the boat, it will soon go!
Free Ouzo on the way back! All for 20 Euros! Fantastic!

Emma C           

This is a must trip, me and my mates went with the 18-30 reps and we had such a good time! We went on the trip the day before we went home and it was such a good day to end a brill holiday on. The reps made the trip though, they were such a good group. The BBQ on the beach is so nice, def have the chicken!!

Louise M           

it was so good. had the worse hang over of my life as soon as we got to the island jumped in the water and i was cured. the bbq omg i still talk about it now, i dunno if it was because it was the first thing that i had eaten that day but the chicken i had was soooooooooooooo lovely. cant wait to go again this year. i went on the banana boat that was cool a bit scared got kicked up the a**e as i flew off the banana boat quite funny . wen we went to that little laguna thing after the bbq and that and we got to jump off the boat that was cool. the belly flop comp owww. wkd. if u haven't been i def recommend that u go.   ps bring drinks or money for drinks thats one thing i didn't do.

Matthew L           

I was in Ipsos in June and September last year and I agree, captain Homer is a star.We went on the trip to Kassiopi and had a great time,
B B Q was really good and the swim stops great.(I did dive in from the top of the boat).
excellant value for money.

Ian T           

The best boat trip in ipsos is with Captain Homer.
Olga and Homer really make the effort to give you a great day out.
Go on both the trips to the north and south if you can, food is lovely and the swimming stops are great, dive off the top of the boat if you dare!!!.
Book with lovely Sophia opposite the Temple Bar, Pyrgi .

Michale J           

Theo is a star, as his son and brother Alex. I would defintiely go on this one, it's one of Thomson's excursions and again it shows the high standard that Thomson set. Every holiday I've been on is Thomson and I would never change it.

Helena G           

haha went to corfu in july 2004 and theos was the BEST part of our holiday, the BBQ was great, the entertainment was tops and the blue lagoon was the most beautiful place i've ever been to in my life. well worth every penny and the memories will stick with me forever. recommended to anyone. i'm definitely going to go back as soon as possible.

Nicola B           

I worked as a childrens rep and guided theos boat trip every week i loved it as you are traveling over to the main land greece on the boat theres lots of fun to be had with music playing and lots of fun surprises from theo and his gang always be on the look out for dolphins as many of times they hear the music from the boat and come to swim around the boat. once on the beach you get chance to swim and sunbathe then thoe cooks up the best bbq you have ever eaten. the boat then sails to a beautiful blue lagoon where you can dive for champagne or just swim in the clear water take your snorkle kit. then its off to a cave theo backs his boat into the cave watch out for bats all in all a wonderful day out it will be a boat trip to remember. yasoo theo and alex i love your boat trip xxx ps dont be fooled girls every girl is there beautiful babies.

Debbie B           

just come back from corfu 29/10/2004 the first trip we went on was theos he is soooo mad but so much fun .would tell everyone who goes to corfu to go on his boat trip the children enjoyed as well as adults
i was his juicy lucy and my mum was his sexy mama what a great way to celabrate my 40th birthday (d e barfoot swansea)

Ella D           

We did Theo's trip, he's absolutely MAD, we enjoyed it so much, everybody had a good laugh (and of course, a fair share of shaving foam and water!). Watch out for that sexy-mama (and the melons).
A very good day out!

Sylvia C           

went on beach bbq arranged by value plus in sidari - coach trip to harbour in paleo and then boat to secluded beach - only accesible by baot! Fabulous trip and great food, good value for money, can recommend, very good value!!!

Alison T           

Had a great time well worth it .

Naomi W           

I came home from two weeks in Corfu and I have told everyone what a laugh I had on Theo's boat bbq I loved it Theo was an entertainer to all!The day was fun packed and the action didnt stop I cant say much for the food because I was to busy being paranoid about the wasps around me but my family say it was good!I'd go back again because I has such a good time. It was our last day on the island and when we played loud music and we were just leaning off the side of the boat singing it really wound the holiday down and I remember seeing the water go past sun shining!Highly recommended

Lucy W           

well what can i say myself and 4 friends went on Theo's BBQ boat and we had an excellent day it was the best day of our holiday. to Theo and his brother Alex us 4 were called their beautiful babies. to start of the trip we got covered in shaving foam and lots of water. the food was excellent. we cant wait to go again. i cant say to much or it will not be fun when you go. go on have a go enjoy the day out.
lots of love Theo's beautiful babies

Lucy W           

well what can i say Theo's BBQ boat was excellent myself and 3 friends went on the trip and Theo and his brother Alex called use their beautiful babies we all had a great day from the moment we stepped on the boat. he started by covering all 4 of us in shaving foam needless to say we got our own back. we then had the BBQ and the food was wounderful, everyone enjoyed the next bit getting wet during the water fight with another boat. this day trip was the best day of our 2week holiday and we cant wait to go again. Theo is so entertaining and mad it is hard to beleive it. i shall say no more i will give it all away go and sample it for yourselves it is a great day out.
lots of love Thoes 4 beautiful babies

Megan O           

The boat Journey to the beach was enjoyable. Altough we had a great time at the beach its only downfall was that it was too stoney to have a leisurely walk along and to walk in the beautiful sea. The barbque was excellent and even catered for three non-fish-eating vegetarians. The water fight was a lot of fun. everyone has the option of whether they want to join in or not, a lot of people did. We enjoyed diving off the boat into the crystal clear refreshing sea, And eating ice-cream whilst soaking up the sun on the journey back to Corfu Town. Overall a great day, defiitely recommended.

Lauren M           

barbeque ok, boat ride there was terrible, every single person on the boat was sick!!!!!!!!! and the coach journey from sidari to palicatistra diddn't help either, i'm sorry if other people enjoyed but i (and the rest of the boat) really didn't.


We have just come back from 2 weeks in Corfu, we had an excellent time but the best day we had was Theos BBQ Boat trip. At first i didn't want to go on the boat but i enjoyed it from beggining to end. Me and my mum were dissapointed that they had run out of doughnuts but it was made up for in the end. Theo and his crew made the day 10 times better as well.

Sasha E           

We went on Captin Thoe's boat trip from St George South, we were pick up from our apt and driven to Kavos port. As soon as you step on the boat the fun and games started, and the beach BBQ excellent. The fun & games carried on until we docked. This is a family boat trip and graet fun for all ages.

Chris M           

Went through First Choice rep from Kavos. Trip out to the "beutiful" beach on the mainland was OK rest of boat sleeping last nights hangover off. When we landed at the beach very let down. Water was not clean, the kids dug up old chicken bones and plastic forks from the "sand" BBQ very much value chicken. Had to pay extra 3e for sun loungers. Trip back made up a bit with stop off at Blue Lagoon jump off boat etc. Not good value for money, better off hiring car and exploring for yourself, or doing the Blue Lagoon trip.


Lisa K           

We went to Ipsos in July
best Boat trip was Captain Homer's!

Day trips are to Benitises and Kassiopi.

Benitises with it's lunch, swim stops and a visit to Vidos Island is Wonderful.

Kassiopi (a beautiful, must see place), with BBQ and various stops at gorgeous swimming locations, at one stop you can even swim in a cave! is a bargain at E20. (I went twice)

Night trip to corfu town is a must. It's the best way to see corfu town and shop, when it's not so hot. See the old Fort lit up at night and journey back to Ipsos looking at the stars and lights of Corfu listening to the beautiful Greek Music.

Captain Homer and his crew Olga and Nico are friendly, warm and welcoming, catering to your every need.

To book, visit Sophia (Homer's wonderful wife) who sits at 'the office' opposite the Temple Bar.
Leaflets are available and Sophia will answer any queries.

Homer, Sophia and the Crew enriched our holiday experience!

Sue C           

Had three trips with Captain Homer and Crew. Corfu Town trip at night is cooler and return in the darkness is magical.

Day trips with BBQ are really good value as still E20 and swimming stops are out of this world.

Captain Homer Olga and Nico could not be nicer or more helpful and have always gone out of there way to make everything perfect.

Book with Sophia Catains beautiful wife opposite the Temple Bar and if you need any help with any queries Sophia will have the answers for you, if not she knows who can help.

All in all a great time was had by all from truly lovely people.

Slut F           

the s**ts from essex thought that the boat trip was quite s**tty, however, our friend thought that it was great and the best day of her life! even though it rained all day and after tucking into and devouring her bbq feast which she thought was delicious, the best food she's ever had she climbed back onto the boat, snuggled up on the chair and drifted off to sleep for the rest of the trip. even though the trip was s**tty i liked the view of the sexy sexy barman from the jazz bar

Lisa J           

Just come home after a second visit to Ipsos, would not hesitate to recommend a boat trip with Captain Homer to anyone.Great value for money, really nice boat fantastic food, and captain Homer and Olga are really nice. Great swim stops in beautiful waters. Don`t book with your rep. see Captain Homer at Pyrgi jetty. same high standards as on our last vist.

Andrew D           

Just got back from a holiday in Kavos, and Theos Boat BBQ was definetely the highlight, it was brilliant!!
Theo is a bit of a comedian, he has a brilliant sense of humour and plays lots of practical jokes!! The 1st beach we stopped at was nice and sandy, with clear water and lots of water sports to take part in. We had the BBQ there, which was lovely, I recommend the pork chops. The wine you get with the BBQ is a bit nasty, but it gets you drunk quick.
After the BBQ, its off to the Blue Lagoon, where you can dive off the boat if your brave. I jumped off the top deck a few times, which was really fun, the water was a bit cold and salty (it is only May after all), but it was perfectly clear.
All in all, an excellent day all round and I would highly recommend it.
The trip is exclusive to Thomson though, and there are a few copies which aren't as good being advertised around Kavos.
So if you are with Thomson, definitely give it a go!!


if its the same boat trip us girlies went on then you will have a fab day!!!met loads of hotties and didnt get pushed into doing something we didnt want to.we booked our boat trip through mark??? i think we was walking down the beech it was only 25 euros and had a really good day! xxx

Craig T           

we went on tho's boat bbq and we booked it through the reps it was 72 or 72 euros for both of us and its worth every penny the guy is a total nutter the boat is good with a bar he takes you to a cove with a pebble beach where you can swim or jump of the boat the bbq was good my advice is go for a chop you wont get 1 the second time cuz every 1 wants 1 ill not tell you what goes on on the boat on the way back keepin it a surprise as it was only the second week in may there was only 60 of us on the boat but he says in high season he can use his 2 boats oh the wine you get is horrible but he does have red whte or just coke oh the sun beds a 3 euros each once you get there rember the suncream and camera he says hes got a website now if any1 knows this can they leave a message

Been reading the comments about Theos - and agree it's a fab day out. We did Theo's BBQ last summer - and when we were in Corfu three years ago (with Thomson) and will def do it again this year if we go back. Theo's mad, foods great and whole day was great fun. Not cheap but def worth the money.

We booked ours through Michalas travel in Paleokastritsa for 25 euros. We really enjoyed it, our first stop was Paradise Beach and we had a swim and a lie in the sun. After about an hour the boat came back and took us on a trip along the coast and then stopped by some caves where we jumped off the boat and were able to swim into the caves, the water was about 8 metres deep and very clear. My husband was in deep shock that I did this swim as I always chicken out and I am not very keen on swimming in the sea but what the hell it was great. After that we went back to the same beach and had the BBQ. The BBQ was chicken, bread, melon and some salad and the drink ran freely. Well worth it.

Top value for money. works out at just 20, and that includes the blue lagoon trip aswell. The beach was very nice. Was great for playing football and tug of war. A great laugh. Lovely weather helps, which he half got. Water was clean and warm. Great for a swim. BBQ was top notch!! Best barby i've ever had. The pork chops are perfectly juicy. Can't be beaten. A lovely day

This was the best money we spent!
If you are up for anything or just fancy a day out this is worth it!
The boat is lovely, the crew are fantastic and fun!
The beach you stop at is pebbley and be prepared to pay for the sun loungers and take plenty of sun protection but the BBQ is worth it (altough not for veggies!).
Then it is nack on the boat for a wet time (if you want it - if not stay at the back!) and then to a secluded cove for a dive off the boat in to crystal blue waters and back to Kassiopi which is beautiful.
If you do nothing else but this on your holiday it is worth it!

We went on the beach trip with Libra. Stephanos was the skipper. He told bad jokes and sang all the way. Beach was shingle. BBQ was excellent. Ice cream boat called in around 1 o'clock. A chill out day. Sun swimming and eating. wine water and orange juice provided.

We went on Theos Boat Trip on the third day of our holiday and it turned out to be the best day of the holiday. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive at the port. Theo takes time to point out landmarks to you making jokes as you go. He is really is great fun. Time for a swim in a lovely spot in the clear see and the deck hands take you through a little cave, then onto a small stoney beach that is so beautiful. The barbeque is delicious and the pork chops look as though they could have come from a dinosaur. Beer, wine and soft drinks for everyone. Great fun on the way back, but won't give too much away as the surprise of it all is half the fun. Theo has been doing this for 23 years and he has got it just right! You don't feel as though you are a tourist being ripped off but more like you are having a day on your friends boat with lots of other friends you've not met yet. Suits all ages and people, unless you have had a sense of humour bypass.
You've got to do this.

May I just say that there are many different Boat BBQs offered around the island and the comments here apply to many different ones so criticism may be infererred for the wrong one! May I also just say that more often than not disappointment is caused on trips sold by reps when either incorrect or insufficient info is given; so people go expecting one thing ( cos they werent told any different!) and get something else , which does not make the trip bad........ just not what you had expected.

Only 20 E for a fantastic Day.
Captain Homer and his staff Olga and Nico cannot do enough to make your trips enjoyable.
The Bar B Q is very good food and wine provided.The bays visited for swimmimg magical.
Booking is easy see Sophia (opposite the Temple Bar) Captain Homer's wife she cannot be more helpful any questions not only about the boat she will try to answer for you.
A great day for all young old and families will enjoy these trips.

Well done Captain Homer.

We went on Theos boat trip (through Thomsons), which although pricey was the best day of our holiday. The boat is superbly equipped and Theo is a nutter, if you enjoy a laugh and ar not easily offended you must go, it's great for all ages. The beach barbecue was excellent and you could go back for seconds, drink as much rough wine as you like and have a relaxing few hours on the beach, with beautifully clean water (not like Sidari beach!. Save some of your bread and you can feed the fish, they will come almost right to your hand.

Rachel, we went with Thomas Cook last year and booked the Boat Trip. It cost us either 30 or 35 euros. I would say whether it was good or bad but we got up late and missed the coach by about 15 minutes. It wasnt our fault - we had jetlag!!!

John K           

The trip started well but when we arrived at the boat it was swimming in God knows what, the toilets didn't work which when you have kids is a disaster. There was no beer on the boats for the grown ups except if you were staff or reps yet another disaster for the men. When we arrived at the taverna for the beach BBQ it wasn't exactly the cleanest location in the world and the food was just about edible if you like chicken as there was no other option. When we mentioned this to the reps they were not interested they already had our cash. The icing on the cake however was the 4 days spent in bed with food poisoning and the doctors bill at the end of it. DON'T DO IT.

how much would this set me back? and how long dose it last for? and one final question, what age groups were there? are there a lot of young people or is it more of a family thing?

excellant value 4 money, captain Homer is a star. BBQ was really good and wine kept flowing.we sailed to kassiopi which was beautiful.

Maggie H           

We booked trip to both North and south with Captain Homer, (DOH!). The set up was brilliant. Boat clean, food excellant and locations for sea swimming a must.
