Full description
Few people know that just half an hour away from the city center, there is a beautiful coastline with sparkling clear waters waiting to be explored. During this tour, you will sail along the Athenian Coast and experience the beauty for yourself. Hop on a sailboat, meet experienced crew and join a heart-filling experience sailing in the Saronic Gulf. Upon leaving the port, the boat will head towards Vouliagmeni Bay, past the Athenian Riviera, for your first swim stop. Enjoy a quick dip in the clear waters before you continue to your second swim stop located off the coast. There you will be served a selection of Greek appetizers and some local wine or refreshments. Learn the basics of sailing from your skipper or just sit and relax in the sun. Explore some hidden coves and drop an anchor in beautiful secluded bays where you will be able to enjoy a swim using the on-board snorkels, flippers and goggles. If swimming is not your thing, then grab a fishing rod and try your luck with fishing. In the mean time, you will be served some authentic Greek tapas and quality Greek wine before making your way back to base for your return.

The experience was really amazing! The boat ride itself was so beautiful since we could see Athens so clearly. Views were 100% wonderful from the boat. The water was also very blue and gorgeous. The teal and dark blue areas of the sea are just so breathtaking. We got to swim at two stops and used the snorkeling equipment for about a half hour each time. I loved the experience and highly recommend to anyone for their Athens trip. One of the tour guides cooked for us and the other took pictures for us and used the drone to get better picture views. It was a good size group so it was enjoyable and everyone was able to chat with each other. The only issue is that the bathrooms weren't too clean but I still recommend doing this. It was honestly so amazing and I'm happy my group did it. The tour guides were exceptional, welcoming, and extremely fun. Also, Irene, one of our tour guides, is absolutely wonderful. Don't miss out

So much fun! This was our last day in Athens and it was the best way to end our trip. The snorkeling was so much fun and the water was so clear. They stopped twice for swimming and food. The food was also amazing. We will definitely do this again when we're back in Athens!

We had an amazing time! This was my first trip to greece and my first activity and it did not let me down! The crew & the weather were perfect! 2nd stop was my favorite because we got served traditional greek food ( the tzatziki and rice dish were amazing). I would do this everyday if I could! Thank you Nikki!
