Exclusive Cruise - Ithaca
Join the Agios Dimitrios, a spacious Tursish wooden gullet for a relaxing all day cruise around Meganisi, with an added swim at Jackie Kennedy Beach on Skorpios, the famous Onassis island.
The boat is equipped with comfy sunloungers (in the shade and the sun), bathrooms, a kitchen, large dining tables at the back and inside seating too. There are also stairs which provide a comfortable entrance and exit to and from the sea.
Captain Giannis and his partner Mikaella will collect you from either Vathy harbour or Spilia Bay at 9:30am.
The voyage starts by taking you to the famous Papanikoli Cave on the West coast of Meganisi. The cave is said to have sheltered and hidden the Papanikolis submarine during WWII. There is plenty of time to swim inside the cave and make sure you look outside from underwater and see the shoals of fish illuminated in the rays of sun peicing through the tropical coloured sea.
The second stop is at the beautiful beach called Zaganas. The beach has crystal clear waters and plenty of different types of fish to spot around the rocks. There is even a natural plunge pool to the right of the beach to cool down in, be careful getting into it though on the jagged rocks. Taking sea shoes is highly reccommended.
The Agios Dimitrios then stops for a quick swim at Limonari Bay on the East coast of Meganisi. The bay has many rocks for snorkelling and discovering the marine life.
Lunch stop in Elia Bay. Relax and enjoy a delicious traditional Greek lunch while anchored off in the bay. Take a swim to cool down while Mikaella and Giannis prepare the food.
The last stop of the voyage takes you to Skorpios Island. Here the boat stops and anchors off for you to swim ashore on the famous Jackie Kennedy beach before returning to your starting ports.
