Blue Lagoon trip on the Koulla

4 of us took the afternoon boat trip and it was enjoyed by all.
Swimming in the Blue lagoon was perfect, while the BBQ was being prepared. The chicken and pork was delicious as was the salad and cuscus etc.. Red and white wine was plentiful to help yourself too, also an orange soft drink. There was even seconds of the chicken etc., excellent value for money.

Absolutely beautiful day

Stunning cruise for a few hours, blue lagoon was the perfect spot for an hours swimming. Crystal clear waters and complimentary snorkel hire was fantastic, and fresh fruit and wine topped the excursion off perfectly! Very easy communication with staff prior to the trip also, we will definitely go back! Thank you!

Boat trip to the Blue Lagoon

We got the information for their website and dialed the number to book. Theo took our booking, they didn’t even ask for a deposit, we just paid on the day. We met at Latchi Port at 10am and set sail at 10:30. We sailed passed St George’s church and the Aphrodite Baths before arriving to the Blue Lagoon. It took around 40 minutes. We stayed at the Blue Lagoon to swim for an hour before heading back which again took around 40 minutes. There was a bar onboard and the staff were very helpful. They have got snorkels and masks to use whilst swimming at no charge, just a small deposit in which they return in full. We arrived back in Latch Port around 1pm and went to one of the local restaurants for lunch. The boat we sailed on was Nafsika II which had toilets and a changing room. Great little boat trip, not too long and not too short. Definitely recommend.

Souvla on the Koulla!! Amazing!!

We did the afternoon trip to the Blue Lagoon on the Koulla and it was one of the best things we did on our whole trip! 4 hrs of pure bliss! Great crew! Amazing Souvla and food all while you have a swim at the beautiful Blue Lagoon! My kids absolutely loved it! We loved it! Thank You!! Highly Recommend It!

Very impressive

We had the pleasure of going on the Koulla boat yesterday on a cruise to the blue lagoon.We were a party of 17 people from South Africa.It was a fantastic experience.The 2 people in charge of the boat and the souvla (Greek BBQ)were absolutely amazing. Christakis and Paraskeva were extremely helpful,generous and obliging. They could not do enough for the passengers. If you ever visit Cyprus ,do yourself a favour and do this 4 hour cruise where you also get the opportunity to swim at the blue lagoon.


Leisurely cruise to the turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon

Although there are numerous tour stands offering cruises to the Blue Lagoon in Latchi’s marina (mind you most are lined up beside one another and ask you to join them as you walk past), my partner and I decided to go with Mini Cruises because it was a family run business (and we love to support the local community whenever travelling). We booked into to the Nafsika II half day cruise with Theo and his crew. It was the middle of the day, the sun was shining, the water was crystal clear and everyone aboard was very friendly (a mixed bag of both domestic and international travellers).

The family run business has a lovely story about Theo’s entrepreneurial Grandfather, Captain Giangos, who started to offer tours to his friends to see the Blue Lagoon back in 1982. He was a fishermen at the time but soon enough began to operate commercial tours. I can understand why, especially after visiting the lagoon myself. It’s stunning. Best described as a majestic and the water was delightful. I felt like I was on the film set for the 1980 Randal Kleiser classic. Highly recommend this tour, we had a very relaxing day and would love to visit again soon.

Fabulous trip

We went on the afternoon trip which was just perfect. Not too busy in comparison to what I’d expect of the full day trip and the amount of time on the boat was just enough. Been on a few trips like this before but must say, this was the most professional and very well organised, especially when the food was ready. Was delicious. Our stopping time at the Blue Lagoon was just right and was gorgeous to be there at Sunset. Plenty of shade available on deck and the staff were great. No issues with anything at all – would definitely recommend this trip.

Perfect day at Blue Lagoon with Koulla boat!

We took the Koula traditional boat to Blue Lagoon Akamas. Everything was perfect! The food was very good, the waters at Blue Lagoon were crystal clear, and the boat’s staff (Paraskevas) was very friendly and funny! We absolutely loved it!


Good value day out

First time on the koulla for the 4 1/2 hours Blue lagoon trip. The boat is supper clean and crew are very helpful, pleasent trip from Latchi up the coast to the Lagoon, great couple of hours anchored for swimming whilst they prepered the souvla lunch which was excellent then back to town spot on time, have to say this is a very well run vessel ideal for all ages, no blaring music or inaudible tanoy at all and the food was fantastic. Recommended for sure and we will do this trip again.

Beautiful trip

We booked by phone for a 4pm cruise on the Koulla traditional boat. Middle of August so quite busy with a full boatload of 40, but still extremely pleasant. The staff are friendly, the food gorgeous, and the Blue Lagoon beautiful. Take your own water & snacks if you have children as the food doesn’t come out til about 6.30, and my daughter needed something before then. We took our own snorkels but actually there’s not much to see as most of the rocks where the fish are are nearer the shore, away from the Koulla mooring site. Ok if you feel like a bit of a swim but our girls wanted to stay near the boat as the water was too deep to stand. They enjoyed jumping off the boat into the sea, and as we’d gone in the afternoon it wasn’t too hot, and we got a beautiful sunset on the way home. Really worth €25 adult, €15 child fee. A highlight of our holiday.

Trip to Blue Lagoon

Initially we thought to drive to Blue Lagoon by car (staying in Kissonerga). But after reviewing recommendations regarding the road from Latchi to the place, decided to take a tour from Latchi harbor with Nafsika II Mini Cruises. The boat itself is at a very good condition. The boat crew is taking care about guests all the way through. Around 30 min to Blue Lagoon, 2,5 hours for swimming/bbq-ing and 30 min back to the port. It’s crystal clear water indeed there!!

Excellent excursions

We took an evening cruise with meal , great value for a 4 hr trip with a BBQ for €25 each. Great service both from staff at kiosk and on board , food was good and plentiful although common with a lot of Cyprus there’s little option for vegetarians . Lovely trip out to blue lagoon where you’re anchored for 2 1/2 hrs and snorkelling and float equipment is supplied, Thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely use again .
