Interesting to hear the history and see a land that has just remnants of life in a different age - great day out

Had a fabulous day visiting the sunken city. Beautiful weather, lovely boat, clear sea so you can see everything. Lovely little blue fish darting around the sea. The views are amazing along the way too.
