What You Can Expect

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Beautiful Egina, Greece

Begin your experience with a pickup from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your catamaran.
Step aboard and enjoy your approximately 2-hour cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you relish the views and sea air, hear about the culture and sights on the three islands so you can make the most of your time on each.
Arrive at Poros and enjoy around an hour to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a fascinating ruined Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest — an idyllic beauty spot of citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls.
Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the catamaran restaurant — either during your 1-hour cruise to Hydra or the next leg of your journey between Hydra and Egina.
As you approach Hydra, admire the pretty harbor and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. Go ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy around two hours to look around on your own. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops.
Afterward, cruise to Egina, also known as Aegina. Here, either join an optional excursion (own expense) to see the well-preserved ancient Temple of Aphaia or delve into the picturesque port town. Stroll along the buzzing harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops — the choice is yours.
Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a colorful Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus.After an hour at sea, disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off in Athens.

Amazing tour, very friendly crew members, they picked us up and dropped us right, very good food served as lunch, the islands are very tiny, só I believe the time spent in each Island is good enough! Highly recommend this cruise! Wonderful view from beginning to end!
