Admire the wonderful coastal highlights of Zante whilst cruising to the north of the island with the ultimate destination being the Smugglers Cove and sailing close to the Blue Caves.
You will be picked up and transferred to the main harbour of Zante town, where you will join the cruise boat for an unforgettable experience cruising around the island. The boat will cruise past the residential area of Krioneri, the resort areas of Tsilivi, Alykanas and Alikes, up to Skinari, the most northern part of the island, where you can see the lighthouse. Also, just off the port of Agios Nicholas at Skinari there is a small island in the shape of a turtle, officially belonging to the Vatican as it was not ceded to Greece along with the rest of the Ionian Islands in the 18th Century.
From this point Kefalonia can be seen. Continuing, the boat sails fairly close to the famous Blue Caves discovered in 1897. The name comes from the colour of the water, a mixture of aquamarine and turquoise. This area is also the deepest part of the Mediterranean called the “Well of Ionysos“, which is about 4,500 metres deep.
Heading onto Smugglers Cove, where the wreck of the ship “Panayiotis” can be seen, and a stop for a wonderful swim in the lovely blue waters. The boat will anchor as close to the shore as is possible depending on the sea conditions and anyone wishing to go to the beach may do so. The beach is not sandy, it has small white pebbles. Smugglers cove is only accessible by sea.
The boat will now continue passing the West coast and come to the famous Keri Caves. The Blue Caves, the Bat Cave, the Seal Cave and several others, were created by the erosion of the rocks. The two conical huge rocks which bounce from the crystal blue waters in Keri, are called the Small & the Big Mitzithra.
According to the weather conditions we will have one or two more swim stops.
Across the Bay of Laganas and passing the beautiful beaches of Vassilikos, the boat will return to the port in town at about 17:15.
