We took Antonis Sea Taxi out to the grotto - you should expect a bumpy ride on a hard bottom boat with a good smattering of sea spray, but it's well worth it. The entry into the grotto is a well-timed manouver and then we had some time to swim and enjoy the cave. Our boat captain was respectful of... More

A must see cave just for the colour of the sea that reflects on the rock. We even saw a seal there, but our guide respected the animal fully, so we didn't go closer.

Beautifull place, worth visiting. Any captain can take you, it's about 20mim boat ride away. Wear swimsuit, you will need it.

A cave with an incredible set of colors. The water is really light blue and the sun light creates marvelous effects

I took a boat ride to the Blue Grotto and due to moon and high tide the entrance was very narrow, swam into the grotto through a narrow gap and was in awe once inside - cavernous and almost breathtaking with amazing shades of blue, the water is crystal clear - a wonderous experience

My friend, 72, and I went in a small dingy with George. He was very informative. The coast line is sheer, the water almost smooth, the weather was really hot. George slowed the boat and asked up to lay in the bottom. We were outside the cave but the cliff was almost completely to the top of the waves. So... More

Once you get to Kastellorizo, all you have to do is just walk around the harbor, look for a sign or talk to any of the people who are there with boats, and book your trip into the Blue Cave. The price will depend on how many people are in the boat; most are small boats and 4 people would... More

Blue, blue, blue cave. The big blue. A place so surreal but also so real as if a place out of this world.
