Description

The private round-trip tour starts with a pickup in our air-conditioned mini-van from your hotel in Athens to Lagonissi, where you will board the rib boat. While your captain sails the boat passing the stunning coast line of Attica, sit back and relax or simply soak up the sun. 

Our boat is a 32f/10m RIB with a 300HP engine. It is fast (max speed 41 knots), and the safest boat someone can use. There is always a 2-man crew on-board that are diving and first-aid instructors. A 6 square meter tent will provide enough shade, and there are enough couches to fit comfortably the passengers.

We head to Arsida and Pothitos, Fleves or Patroklos - small uninhabited islands with remote sandy beaches, where you can swim, snorkel, or just relax. At Arsida Island you will have the chance to snorkel and swim in its cave. We will show you the magnificent sea-world of Athens, one of the safest seas in the world without dangerous marine life and strong currents. 

A dive or a "discover scuba" program can be also arranged if you wish, at an extra cost. Complimentary snacks, beverages, and fresh fruit are offered on-board. After enjoying the sun and the sea, we board the rib and head to Sounio and the Poseidon temple. There you will explore the ruins and admire the stunning views. Cape Sounio is noted as the site of the ruins of the ancient temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. 

The ruins bear the deeply engraved name of English Romantic poet Lord Byron. 

After the visit to the temple, we head back to your hotel with the mini-van, with your mind and heart full of unforgettable moments

Important information

Choose a morning or afternoon cruise on booking, and begin with pickup from your Athens hotel, Athens cruise port, or airport. Bring sun cream and hats, plus bathing suits and towels if you’re planning to swim. Settle into your private, air-conditioned minivan and leave the city bustle behind for Lagonissi. This picturesque seaside area lies southeast of Athens on the shores of the Saronic Gulf. Here, board your private RIB, and admire the views as you cruise to several pretty islands, such as Arsida, Pothitos, and Fleves, all set like jewels in the seas. These rocky, uninhabited islets are lined with beaches and caves and washed by clear waters that harbor rich marine life, reefs, and even shipwrecks. Depending on weather conditions, your skipper will decide on your island-hopping route, leaving you free to relax and drink in the scenery and sunshine. Spend two or three hours hopping between islands; sunbathing and relaxing aboard your spacious boat, and stopping for optional snorkels and swims in the bays, inlets or, if you're feeling adventurous, a sea cavern. Make use of the provided snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater sights. If you wish, take up the offer of your skipper’s underwater camera to capture undersea photos. Your photos and the memories they capture will be given to you as complimentary souvenirs at the end of your trip. In between swimming and snorkeling, refresh your energy with the snacks, fresh fruit, and bottled water provided on board. When it’s time, cruise back to Lagonissi and enjoy a transfer back to your Athens hotel, airport, or cruise port, where your experience concludes.
