Full description
The cruise departs from Nidri harbour on the east coast of Lefkada island. Relax on your own on board sunbed as you cruise down the Meganisi channel in the morning sun, visiting first the famous Cave of Papanikolis on Meganisi.  Next stop is the deserted island of Formikula, in the middle of crystal clear waters, the perfect place for a morning swim. You then move on to the island of Kastos, where the boat will anchor in the picturesque harbourside village. There is a beautiful old church to visit and alleyways of traditional stone built houses. Departing the village, the group moves a short way along the coast to the remote beach of Limni. There is time here for guests to have a swim - and the waters at Limni beach are perfect for snorkeling.  A freshly prepared buffet lunch is served on-board. There is rice salad, Greek salad with feta cheese, meatballs, chicken fillet, pasta salad, tzatziki…all served with local Lefkadan wine and soft drinks. After lunch, you move on to the island of Kalamos. Kalamos island is almost entirely covered with forest and has some of the most spectacular beaches in the region. After, head towards the third and fourth swimming stops, the beaches of Asproyiali and Skorpios.

In the morning we left the port of Nidri exactly at 9:00 am. We were offered a berth on the deck where we had a beautiful view during the boat trip. In the morning we were welcomed with a drink and a snack. During the boat trip you could use drinks from the bar, for a fee. They came to collect and bring these to the berths. In between we stopped for a swim at 4 beautiful bays and in the afternoon a delicious lunch was served in the form of a buffet, with something for everyone. Also stopped at a small island, where there was an hour to walk around and have a drink on the local terraces. In between, a lot was told about the history of various islands where we sailed. As a highlight we saw dolphins and a seal. All in all a super fun experience and the crew did everything they could to make it an unforgettable experience. Because a maximum of 50 people can be on the boat, it is quiet.

We had an absolutely wonderful day at the cruise. The snorkeling spots were amazing and we also had a stop at a lovely small village. The crew was very professional and organized, we also enjoyed a nice lunch aboard. Was also so lucky to spot some dolphins on our way. The 9 hours felt like only a few and this is something we absolutely recommend!

Superb day aboard this beautiful boat, well settled on comfortable mattresses we went from island to island. Moments of break for snorkeling, masks and snorkels lent, lots of fish in crystal clear waters! Our children loved it, the meal on board the boat was very nice, simple and good and eating on board and then diving back into the water was great. The crew is very friendly and available, we had a lot of explanations about the different islands, their history, it was perfect. Thank you for this great moment!
