12 Island boat tour vs Jerry's Boat Tour

Can anyone tell me about the above two types of tours and what the differences may be?

I know Jerry's is more laid back and you can fish on the boat.

For the 12 Island tour do you actually get to see 12 small islands?

Which tour boat visits area with clearer waters?

A lot of people like Jerry's boat because it's smaller and not noisy, no loud music, also his wife does the cooking. The bigger boats take more people are less intimate and a lot of them play very loud music. All boats stop for swimming etc.,

It's up to you if you want a larger boat or a smaller more intimate one.

yes you see 12 islands (OK some are just big rocks)

The clearer water (and some very interesting caves and coves) and İMO the best routes are around the Letoonia peninsular, downside is that it is more dificult to get ashore if you fancied a bit of exploring.

No comparison between the normal large tour boats and the smaller ones such as Jerry's.

prices for the smaller boats are higher but for the quality and quantity of the meal itself well worth the extra.

The large boats are good but can be too busy - OK if you like that but for me a boat trip is for relaxing.

We have been on a 12 Island trip once and Jerry's boat four times day and once night. With Jerry you will see 12 or more small islands just the same as the other trips, so don't be taken in by the hype, but there is a big difference in what you get for the experience.

Jerry is a quiet unassuming man with great respect for the sea, he just loves everyone to share some of his experiences.

Fishing is fun, if like us you have never fished before, just pick up a rod, have it baited up for you and follow their instructions of how many turns up from the bottom and you catch fish, these are the fish that will be cooked for lunch.

Swimming and snorkelling (all gear provided) is great as Jerry has, on our four day trips dived down with all who wished to see an octopus. He is Captain of the Boat and Master of the Sea.

Lunch is something to be experienced, absolutely wonderful, cooked in a small galley by Jerry's wife, the flavours are amazing.

Our last trip was July 2014

Don't miss out, join Jerry.
