Enjoy a half day cruise and sail along some of the most famous spots of Zakynthos coast such as the Shipwreck Beach, the blue caves and the smugglers cove.
After your pick up from your central located hotel in Zante, you will be transferred to the main harbor in order to join the Stavroula speed boat for an unforgettable experience cruising to the North of the Island and back.
Pass the residential area of Krioneri, the resort areas of Tsilivi, Alykanas and Alykes, 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.
Next, head to Smugglers Cove, where the wreck of the ship “Panayiotis” can be seen, and enjoy a refreshing swim in the lovely blue waters. Those strong swimmers wanting to swim ashore can do so with the captain’s permission, as there is no dock. The beach is not sandy, it has small white pebbles. Smugglers cove is only accessible by the sea. (Docking and swimming is weather permitting).
Continue 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 meters deep. Short stop for about 30 minutes in order to enjoy a refreshing swim.
The boat now turns around and cruises back to the port in town, arriving at about 13.30. The tour finishes with a drop off service.
