If you like animals then this will make you sad as the sea lions have a poor quality of life especially. However other animals were not able to carry out their natural actions as the conditions are poor. please release the seal Iions especially

The boat trip itself is enjoyable. However, the poor old lobster is kept in a cage and the small enclosure for the two sea lions is horrendous. This treatment of animals should not be allowed.

Tips: - We managed to get a discount as we went just before the start of the season and we weren't entirely sure if we wanted to go. The closer you turn up to the departure time, the more likely they are to offer one to fill the boat. Pros: - Two experiences in one! Glass bottom boat ride and... More

We were in Corfu town and thought we'd try the Kalypso Star.......and soon regretted it. All you get to see is a lobster & crayfish which conveniently appear as soon as the boat stops (I agree with other reviewers about them probably being held in a tank) and some fish which appear only because the diver has food, then you...

The boat ride includes a "show" by 2 sea lions kept in a very small enclosure. It wasn't clear beforehand that this was included in the trip, and certainly not that they are kept in such a small space: they did not have much room to swim. Very unpleasant experience and not something I would ever want to financially support.

Two seals were kept in a very small enclosure. They did not have much room to swim. It wasn't obvious to us that we would see captive seals, and definitely not in such a small enclosure. Horrible experience. I wish we hadn't financially supported this :(

Barbaric conditions for these poor animals permanently caged in small area and made to perform on the hour. I notice other reviewers make the comment that it is obvious on the advertising material that these seals are caged in, but actually seeing the size of their contained area is heart breaking. In addition,. when they stop the boat for viewing,... More
