Once leaving the harbour there will be approximately one hour cruising along the majestic coastline of the Akamas National Park, with unspoilt views of magnificent pine forests stretching from the coastline up to the mountain top, a perfect time to take some photos. As we cruise along you will hear a professionally guided tour in English and Greek of keypoints of interest along the way.

 

For example:

  • 1. Take the bath of Aphrodite where in mythology the goddess of eternal youth, love and beauty used to bathe.
  • 2. St. George church high up on the mountain side.
  • 3. The island of St. George the boat travels around this small island (Glass bottom viewing highly recommended)
  • 4. Blaji bay which was used as an ancient quarry where today the rock formation looks like an amphitheatre 
  •  
  • 5. Manolis bay was named after a local fisherman from the area.
  • 6. Chamili bay this bay in recent years has become more famously known as BLUE LAGOON which is our 1 HOUR stop. Here you can swim or snorkel.

Once the captain and his crew have anchored they will also prepare for you FREE wine, juice and fresh fruits of the season, which is included in the price of trip.

After our swim stop, we head back towards the beautiful harbour of Latchi where there are many restaurants to choose from should you wish to stay longer in the area to relax and enjoy a lovely meal or cold drink overlooking the harbour. Please remember all our trips are approximately 3 hours long and many people do not realise how hot the sun can be reflecting off the water, the limestone and sandstone rock face along the beach, this makes it a very hot hour swimming !! We recommend bring a hat of some type, sunscreen and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.
