Cameo is a privately owned little paradise and during the summer months, is connected to the land by this bridge and we will have the chance to cross and take some amazing photos! Our boat is waiting for us to start the sunset cruise along the South West Coast of Zakynthos. Marathonisi Island As soon as we are all on board, captain Panagiotis will set sail to Marathonisi, an exotic, green, naturally turtle-shaped island. Along the way, we will try to spot the unique and beautiful creatures, the Caretta-Caretta turtles, which choose Zakynthos sandy beaches every summer to lay their eggs. We will stay at this exotic golden beach swimming, snorkeling, or soaking in the sun. We must be very careful because this is a breeding area for Loggerhead turtles and we must stay only within the first 5 meters of the beach to avoid any harm to the nests of the turtles. Keri Caves Leaving Marathonisi island behind us and sailing along the coastline, you can admire the breathtaking Keri Caves carved by time, tide, and wind and also the white single beaches, the amazing rock arches, and views of the huge white cliffs. Our local captain Panagiotis is very experienced not only at getting into the small-sized caves with the Glass-Bottom boat but also passing right through the famous Keri rock arch (Kamara) as well. We will have 30 minutes to swim outside a magnificent large cave and admire the scenery around us with awe. Make sure you have with you snorkeling equipment to take a look under the crystal-clear waters and admire the sea life, (if you don't have snorkeling equipment ask the captain to borrow you). Myzithres (Keri Sea rocks) As we reach Myzithres Beach and the rocks we realize that is the most imposing landscape of Zakynthos after Navagio beach. These two towering white rocks, the small and large Myzithra are located below the lighthouse of Keri and the contrast between the crystal-clear blue-green waters and the white color of the rocks and the sand of the beach is absolutely amazing. And as the sun goes down with these marvelous colors of the sky the moment is truly enchanting. Enjoy it with a free glass of wine or soft drink.

The boat trip was really great, even though turtle season is over we were able to see a turtle in the harbor. Furthermore, we drove to the Keri Caves where wonderful turquoise water invited for a short swim and snorkeling. The last stop at Marathonisi was also very nice for swimming and eating ice cream. Thanks to our wonderful skipper Stella!

We had a great time. We did not see the time passed. Jumping off the boat to see lots of fish, going into the caves with the boat, passing between narrow rocks, the color of the water, a beautiful beach with protected turtle nests and turtles. Kudos to the guide for her conduct in making us your turtles. Very nice.

Loved the smaller boat as easier to go into caves for a close up look… Excellent value! Captain was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of area. Drove around on the way back in the harbor which took us over our time but we saw turtles!!

Great trip, tour guide was very accommodating and saw some beautiful places! Would’ve been nice to see a few more turtles (we saw 3) but it was off season so still great to see and visit the other places.

The guide was very nice to everyone making sure we were okay asking if this was good enough for us everything was fine
