Information on the Cruise: Embarkation and welcoming service by the crew on board providing to guests information on the areas of the yacht facilities, weather information and presentation of the cruise. Start cruising to the South, passing by Aegina island and heading towards Hydra island for stop at the main port. It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals. Horses, mules and donkeys, and water taxis provide public transportation. The inhabited area, however, is so compact that most people walk everywhere. It’s worth mentioning that Hydra became famous all over the world thanks to the film “Boy on a Dolphin”, shot on the island in 1957 with Sophia Loren leading the starring role.
After sightseeing in Hydra island, we are setting course to Dokos island, a small island in a short distance with very few habitants, ideal for swimming and relaxing into the crystal clear waters in a private bay.
Next on the cruise is the island of Spetses, an island boasting a long naval tradition, famous for its significant contribution to the 1821 War of Independence.The island has managed to retain its individual traditional character thanks to its well-preserved grand captain mansions, still bearing eloquent witness to the island’s glorious past. The picturesque old harbour and Dapia, a tourist and commercial centre where the heart of the island’s entertainment beats, are the trademarks of the town of Spetses. Take a romantic trip around the island in horse-drawn carriages and admire the grand mansions adorning the narrow cobbled streets of the island. You can visit Spetses during September, when “Armata”, a truly impressive re-enactment of a naval battle takes place ever since 1931. You will enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the local taverns-restaurants.
Return to the yacht and start cruising back to Athens enjoying the beautiful sunset colors along way.
