Full description

Embark on a full-day cruise to west Kleftiko from Adamantas. Visit highlights, including Cape Vani and the Sykia cave. Enjoy Greek tapas on board with plenty of swimming and snorkeling stops en route.

Starting from Adamantas and sailing close to the east coast of the bay, you will pass the Christian catacombs, the colorful villages of Skinopi, the capital of ancient Milos and the place where the famous statue of Venus de Milo was discovered.  You will then reach Cape Vani, the bay which was home to one of the first metal mines in Milos. After seeing the old 19th-century mines, you will have the first swim at the bay of Kalogries in crystal clear turquoise waters. After swimming and having some fresh fruit, cakes and refreshments the skipper will set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos. After a quick swim, you will take the small motor-boat under a low passage made of lava rocks and visit the cave.  Head back to the boat and enjoy some ouzo with a variety of Greek homemade tapas. Finally, you will reach Kleftiko, the old pirates-lair. Snorkeling here is an amazing experience due to the underwater passages, caves and an unsurpassed water clarity. Back on the boat, refreshments and ice-cold beers will be waiting for you, followed by a delicious meal and dessert. After you eat you can take the dinghy and go explore the unique Kleftiko caves and passages.  Later, the boat will head east towards Gerakas bay, after a short swim, enjoy fresh fruit back on the boat. The cruise ends in the beautiful tranquil bay of Provatas around 7:00 PM. From there, you will travel back to Adamantas in just 15 minutes.

This was our FAVORITE day of our Honeymoon. This tour is a MUST if you're looking for a full day of action, adventure and beautiful sights. The Captain George was the highlight of the trip. He's the youngest boat captain in Milos, and is hilarious, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the island and about boating. We had plenty of time to swim in the water, snorkle, cliff jump, explore caves via a tender boat and to relax on the boat in hammocks. They served breakfast, lunch and dessert which was all FANTASTIC and had unlimited wine, beer and ouzo. It was a wonderful experience all around and we wont soon forget it.

We had an amazing time on this day excursion! The guides were amazing, the food exceeded our expectations, we felt safe, and we got personalized experiences going into the caves in small groups on a dingy. I would highly recommend this tour if you are in Milos, it was one of our favourite days of our entire vacation!!

We had an excellent day with Polco Sailing! Three Polco boats took the trip together caravan-style including music, drinks (water, wine, beer, ouzo), and excellent food. We stopped 3 or 4 times to swim, with 2 or 3 different dinghy excursions into various caves. There was time (and equipment) to snorkel and opportunities for cliff diving and more. Bring water shoes to protect your feet climbing around on rocks and lots of sunscreen.
