Overview
While swimming in Zakynthos’ seas might turn up a loggerhead turtle sighting—if you’re very lucky—a turtle-spotting cruise will maximize your chances of seeing these marine creatures. Prebook to guarantee your place, and watch for the turtles in their natural habitat as your boat criss-crosses Laganas Bay. Then, admire turtle-shaped Marathonisi island before swimming and snorkeling near the Keri Caves. Cross-island return transfers make your trip extra easy.

Bigger boat companies guarantee to see a turtle and do everything for their costumers to see it. They do not take any care of the turtles itself and totally not of any snorkelers or other small boats. It seems te be very stressfull for the turtles. Better rent a small paddle

It wasn’t Mytours fault that this has got three stars as there input would be more but it was so busy!! It took 40mins on the coach which was a 15min journey? They stopped at Keri caves and Marathonisi island but there were too many other people to appreciate the beauty of them.

I guess we didn't know what to expect when we sought out sea turtles. We’d seen the nests around the island and I particularly enjoyed seeing how they were protected with small structures guarding them from being trampled by the myriad tourists traipsing up and down the beaches.
