What You Can Expect

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Be spoilt with the VIP Cruise Experience option

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 cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you take in 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 Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest — an idyllic spot filled with 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. Head 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 harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops.

Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a 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.

VIP Cruise Experience
Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge. Start with a private transfer from hotel to port, enjoy a private check-in, and then relax in the VIP lounge. Savor a buffet lunch in the VIP dining room and make the most of unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks and coffee through the day. The VIP area is equipped with Wi-Fi, and on the second deck a tax-free luxury goods store awaits. In the summer, you'll be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar.

When I began planning my trip to Greece, my sister-in-law recommended this tour. I'm so glad I took her advice! It was one of the highlights of my trip to Europe. The staff of the boat were friendly and knowledgeable. The cruise itself was peaceful and relaxing, and the islands and scenery were right out of a postcard. In fact, I'd take this cruise again if I ever have the opportunity to do so in the future. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was excellent! It was very well organized, and the staff was friendly. We didn't spend very much time on each island, but it was enough to get an idea of the individuality of each. My sister and I spent the majority of our time in Athens, so it was really nice to be able to get over to three islands in one day. The greek dancers on the boat are wonderful as well! They are filled with energy and enthusiasm. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get a glimpse of island life while they are visiting Greece.
