My companion and I were staying in Benitses, Corfu. We were staying at the Elli Marina hotel. We asked the hotel owner about a cruise. He was able to set up a cruise for us, to Blue Lagoon, visiting Paxos, for the next morning. We gave him the $30 cruise fee, and paid the agency. The next morning, we walked across the street, to Oscar's Travel, to be picked up. They told us to be there (agency hadn't opened yet, but stand in front of it), at 8:50 AM. We were picked-up around 9:00 AM, with a comfortable charter bus. We were then bused to Lefkimmi Port, where we gave our receipts to a rep., before boarding the boat. The tour was taken in mid-May, so the boat had a nice amount of people, but not overly packed. Everyone had a decent seat. We were informed that there were restrooms on board, as well as, a bar and food/snacks available. They announced that we would be entering giant sea caves, and going to the Blue Lagoon, where people could swim in the beautiful clear water, for around an hour. Entering the caves was a great experience. Once the boat started to back away from the caves, and you look at the mountain side above, you will be in awe at how far up it is. About this time, one of the crewmen, had fired up some coals on the bbq, to prepare souvlaki and sausage. When they were done, they were sold at the snack bar, for 2 or 3 euros each, and came with a small piece of bread... so good! Once arrived at the Blue Lagoon, your eyes are in shock, as the water is so beautifully clear and a vibrant, turquoise blue. Although, i didn't get into the water, i watched others jump in and enjoy the experience. It's a great photo opportunity... for sure. Then we went to the the island of Paxos. There, you could deboard the boat, to walk around or dine at a harbor front restaurant, for about hour and a half. We then got back on the boat, for the return to Lefkimmi Port. The boat arrived to port, between 4 & 5 PM. We got on the waiting bus, and were returned to our pick-up points. I would imagine that if you wanted to get off at another stop, you could do so. Although, you would be on your own, to get back to your original stop. We had a great time on this trip. It was a wonderful experience.
