What to expect

Depart from Corfu for your day cruise to Paxos and Antipaxos and enjoy amazing views of the old town and its two Venetian fortresses. Sail south along the Kanoni peninsula and gaze at the famous Palace of Mon Repos, the birthplace of Prince Phillip. Admire beautiful landscapes, including the tourist resorts of Perama, Benitses, the village of Kavos and Corfu's southernmost point, the cape of Asprokavos. Nearing the channel between Corfu and Paxos, marvel at the magnificent sight of the olive and cypress trees that cover the green island of Paxos.

As you approach the island of Paxos, you will be surprised by the tranquillity and lush unspoiled nature. Your boat enters the natural bay of Lakka and moors at this picturesque village. There will find plenty of time for exploring its narrow alleys and colorful shops as well as enjoying a delicious lunch in one of the traditional taverns. You may even decide to venture for a swim to nearby beaches known for their crystalline waters.

Continue sailing south along the west coast of Paxos, enjoying some impressive views of the rugged coastline and the stunning white sandy beaches. Soon you will reach one of the highlights of your cruise, the Blue Caves, where the clarity of the water is just amazing. The Blue Caves are a natural habitat for the Mediterranean monk seal (monachus monachus).

Your cruise continues to the small island of Antipaxos, with its Caribbean like beaches and the famous "Paradise Beach". Take your time for a refreshing swim and sunbathing. On your way back, sail along the east side of the island, viewing several small isles, including those of Skaltsonisi and Mongonisi, the picturesque port of Gaios village and the two small islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos.

All along your cruise enjoy the boat facilities or shop onboard your refreshments and snacks
