Our new mini-cruise is an amazingly thorough and yet perfectly relaxed 4-hour sightseeing tour for all ages which should not be missed! Complete with a detailed audio guide, it includes all the sights of our shorter tours, and reaches all the way to the Mizithres Isles, a true gem of a landscape guaranteed to take your breath away!
At the beginning of our tour, our experienced staff will spot one of the majestic Caretta-Caretta sea turtles that visit Zakynthos during the summer, and the ship will carefully approach so that you can see it up close and take one-of-a-kind pictures, both from our underwater glass cabin, as it is swimming next to you, and from the deck, as it pokes its head out to take a deep breath before diving back in.
After we bid our friend farewell, we will be on our way to the Mizithres Isles. As we cross Laganas Bay, you can enjoy the sea breeze on the sunny deck with snacks and drinks from our bar, or cool off in the air-conditioned underwater cabin. Soon, we will be sailing closely along the coastline of Marathias Mountain, with an ever-shifting landscape of sea caves, cliffs and reefs, stone planes sinking into the sea, capes, coves and giant stone arches - the opportunities for one-of-a-kind photos are endless!
As we round the last cape, you will spot the Mizithres Isles: two white rocky peaks towering above brilliant aquamarine waters, situated right below the Keri Lighthouse. The mainland ends abruptly in a high, white cliff. In recent years, however, a beach has formed, with sand as white as the cliffs, connecting the mainland to the Large Mizithra, and making the Mizithres more hospitable to visitors than ever, now ranked among the three most instagrammed places in Zakynthos! During our 45’ stop, you will be able to comfortably walk out to the beach from our ramp to enjoy the sun and capture the mesmerizing landscape in beautiful pictures. If you are up for an adventure, we definitely recommend that you explore the Mizithres sea caves, brimming with sea life such as game fish and colorful starfish (make sure to bring your snorkelling gear!)
We will then head to Turtle Island, and after a tour around the back, where you will see a sea cave that is frequently visited by seals, we will make a 20 to 30-minute stop for swimming at the front beach. The fine, golden sand and crystal-clear shallows are very family-friendly, and you will get to see the turtles’ nests and plenty of small fish. The final highlight of the tour is Cameo Island, right outside Agios Sostis Port. The Yellow Submarine will approach the islet, and you will get to see the beautiful gulf that is hiding at the back of the island, with turquoise waters, a white beach, high cliffs and pine trees at the top.
Our journey concludes at Agios Sostis Port, at the same spot we started from.
