Day 1: Check-in
Check-in at 5:00pm in the Port of Zakynthos: Finally boarding but we will not leave before sunset, so you will have enough time to enjoy the wonders of the island of Zakynthos. Do not miss the fantastic Byzantine museum and the Marine National Park in Laganás Bay, and then get on board: we will sail heading north-west, towards Agios Nikolaos, and we will delight you with a delicious dinner with friends.
Once we arrive in Agios Nikolaos we can immediately admire the beauty of the green and lush local nature: dense forests, magical natural coves, gentle cultivated hills and enchanting valleys which face white beaches and by crystal clear waters. In the evening, visit the traditional village near the Marina, and savor local food and drinks in the waterfront tavernas, while also enjoying a spectacular sunset. Possibility to participate in an excursion to Navagio Beach: with a small contribution you can visit the magical beach of Navagio Beach, famous for hosting a small abandoned boat that will keep you company while you dive into the blue water, and launch yourself from one of the most spectacular base jumping spots in the world!
After a good breakfast, we arrive and get-off on the Ionian coast of mainland Greece, in Ithaca, described as one of the most beautiful villages in the region. The two crystalline bays flank both sides of the main city and the iconic Venetian fortress forms an impressive backdrop and an authentic dreamlike panorama. In the evening we will have lunch on board, but we will stay in the city for an evening of banquets and warm Greek hospitality. Opportunity to participate in the excursion "Odysseus coach tour": not included in the price but certainly not to be missed, this experience will make you relive firsthand the natural landscapes of this mystical place, home of the Greek hero Ulysses. Visit its palace and archaeological museum, and then run in search of breathtaking views, where you can take unforgettable photos!
In the morning a sweet breakfast on board our gulet, and we'll arrive in Meganisi, less known than the most famous Corfu, but equally spectacular. We'll have lunch to restore some energy and we'll stop to relax a bit on the coast of some lonely islands. Snorkel in the turquoise waters, feel the pebbles under your feet, or go for a walk through the cliff surroundings and visit the picturesque town. We will have dinner in a beach tavern in a secluded bay hidden from the crowd, and later we will admire the stars from the deck of our gulet.
Let's go back south, and land on the white pebble beaches of Fiskardo, which with the suggestive blue seas and its lush countryside, is one of the best kept secrets of Greece. We will dock at the port of Gaios ready for a full day on the island. The island can be easily explored by motorbike, but you can easily visit it on foot, by bike or by car. See the island's many fishermen in one of the beachfront cafes, before tasting some of the best and freshest seafood dishes in one of the excellent local tavernas, that offer the best catch of the day.
Quick breakfast and we'll go further south. Dotted with secluded bays and sea caves, with shallow waters for those who wish to explore the depths of the Ionian Sea, this part of the island of Kefalonia is every explorer's dream. Enjoy lunch on the ship as we sail to the lively Poros, the second largest village on the island located in a horseshoe-shaped bay against a backdrop of olive and cypress trees. Visit the Kanoni pebble beach and Harami's sandy beach and stroll among the green unspoiled nature. In the evening, walk along the Poros promenade between bars and taverns. Here we will dock overnight in a picturesque bay nearby. Possibility of BBQ dinner in Poros.
Before returning to the mainland of the island of Zakynthos, we take this opportunity to admire its long sandy beaches. We'll visit the beautiful Shipwreck Beach and the village on the east coast of the island, enjoying a lunch on board, illuminated by the blue water. We spend the night in the Marina of Zante Old Town, where we will enjoy a delicious Captain's dinner. Possibility of an aperitif with wine tasting in the famous Art Winery wine shop (not included in the price).
