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. Cruise 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 Paxos, you will be surprised by the tranquillity and lush unspoiled nature. Continue sailing south along the west coast of Paxos island, enjoying the impressive rocky coastline and the unique white sandy beaches.

Soon you will reach one of the highlights of your cruise, the Blue Caves with unprecedented clarity and 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 to Corfu sail along the East side of the island, viewing several small isles, including those of Skaltsonisi and Mongonisi. Sail alongside the narrow channel of Paxos and the islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos and moor to the center of the picturesque port of Gaios town. Spend some time walking around the narrow alleys and explore the town, do your shopping, and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the many restaurants available. All along your cruise, enjoy the boat facilities or shop onboard your refreshments and snacks.
