Description

Our adventure will start early in the morning, so grab a coffee and be ready for an unforgettable sailing experience. The excursion begins at Marina Zeas where guests are expected to come on board at 08:45 am.

The first stop of the cruise is the island of Agistri, surrounded by vibrant blue waters and clothed in pine trees. Here you can connect with the lush nature and feel the presence of ancients Greeks and deities while swimming and relaxing on the hot fine sand of the long flax-golden beach between Megalochori and Skala. Adventure lovers can join our optional bike tour between Megalochori and Chalikiada Beach.

From there, we move onto the island of Moni. While here, we will serve a delicious traditional Greek lunch, accompanied by fine wines, beers, soft drinks and coffee. Once you finished your feast, you have the chance to jump off the boat, snorkel, swim around the boat or swim to the island. This gorgeous island has no inhabitants but is populated with law protected deer, wild goats, rabbits and peacocks. We will make a final journey around 3 pm towards the beautiful island of Aegina.

Aegina is famous for its white stone houses, flowery backyards, pistachios, the red volcanic landscape, sensational food, the temple of Apollo and the temple of Aphaia.
