Short description of the cruise 

At about 9:30 am we reach the famous shipwreck. It is known worldwide and is almost synonymous with Zante. An impressive landscape, with crystal blue waters caressing this beautiful beach that embraces the semi covered remains of a ship and behind it a breathtaking escarpment, complete this magic scene. This beautiful beach maybe would have remained anonymous and unknown since there is no road to it, if during 1983, an abandoned smuggling merchant ship had not washed ashore.

The ship was full of illegal cigarettes and traveling from Bulgaria to Italy and was abandoned by its crew, which got away on a small speedboat that was aboard, to avoid being arrested by the authorities. The unmanned smuggling ship was drifted and washed out on this beach. Year after year the tide would bury it in the sand and the beach became known, advertised, and today is globally known and is the biggest sight on the island. Thousands of tourists visit it daily. Weather permitting, we will steer the ship to the sand, you will disembark, and have a chance to get a good look, take photos etc. You will stay on the beach for about 30 minutes. We will set off around 10:30 for the blue caves and we will arrive in about 20 minutes.

About half way there you can see a castled wall. About 1100 years ago St. Andrews monastery was built there and the only thing remaining is this castled wall that protected it from the pirates. Just down the way, a strange cave with stalactites. The depth is about 70m. Large waves, especially during winter occur in this area and very often we can see seals and sea-lions and also near the light house.

These caves were carved by the wild waves within the centuries that whip the irregular coastlines. They get their colour from the underwater seabed. The biggest cave has a length of 35m. Thousands of tourists visit it daily with small or large ships; yachts all drop by to admire this scenery.

It’s time to stop for a swim near by the caves, for about 30 minutes. Crystal blue waters invite you to dive in and enjoy! Whoever likes can dive off the boat; the water is deep or you can use the waterslide.

A small picturesque village with a sandy beach, water sports and restaurants for whoever wants to eat. We will stay here for about 2 hours.

Please be on time on the boat for the departure.

AGATA

 Tour guide, lover of nature and animal protection, will take care of the proper organization of tours and contact with clients.

The day has come when we should say a little about us.  I am Agata and I have been lucky to live in beautiful Kefalonia for three years. Together with my husband - Aris  we organize trips on Kefalonia and Ithaca. Our office is Ecotravel Kefalonia - that is travel that brings you closer to nature and eliminates harmful activities, including bad mood. It is travel in a way similar to the economical, but also enriching with experiences and memories.
Some time ago, we looked at our beautiful, wild Kefalonia with delight. Proud that we have lived in such a place, perfect for many, many of you. We were in love in places where silence played the first violin, and the sea and the breeze were our only companions. Today, many of these places are missing, you need to look for silence with a candle ... Somewhere beyond the borders of all top attractions, where there is no straight path, are our little secret places. Here time stands still. Money plays no role. The melody of the surrounding nature creates a special concert for the ears and the eyes begin to shine with millions of surrounding colors. We are here because we want to show people that you can experience your vacation in a completely different, unspecified way. We are also here to lead safely to places that only local people know about. We are finally here to wake up mature travelers in tourists ... We do not direct our travels, we give free choice, valuable tips and time that is lacking in everyday life. We create a frame for a colorful picture that you create yourself, rediscovering your own passions and emotions.
If you are willing to travel, in which the concept of the rule is eliminated, please contact us and visit our profiles.
