What You Can Expect

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens with Optional VIP Upgrade

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 ship.

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 ship's 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.

We were very happy to have taken this tour - it was a great day out, although not a short one, It's a great combination of cruising between the islands, enjoying a high standard of onboard facilities and service and also having the chance to take a look at the three islands concerned as well. The transfer arrangements and overall conduct of the tour were very well managed. The ferry was of quite a substantial size and there was a large number of passengers on board. Although this made the decks busy at times, there was plenty of alternative seating inside in pleasant surroundings. The bar service was good and the staff overall friendly and helpful. The lunch sitting was busy but well managed and the standard of the food on offer was very good. We were hopeful of swimming on at least one of the islands but gave up as there didn't seem to be any means of showering afterwards. The island stopover times are sufficient to allow a good look-over - we found Hydra the most interesting, Poros was also pretty although we didn't venture far from the dock, and Aegina was more like a big town. We found the tour to be very good value.

This cruise is a great way to see additional islands! Each island has it's own unique personality. Hydra was my favorite of the 3. The ship/boat is large and comfortable. The food was delicious. It was the perfect way to spend the day. Absolutely worth the price of admission!

We were picked up on time and driven to the Ferry. The staff was friendly, restrooms clean, comfortable seating, and good food and beverages. We loved Hydra and Egina. We would do it again.

LOVED this tour. VIP experience is absolutely worth it. Not only did we get incredible food and basically waited on hand and foot, we got priority disembarkment, which meant we got to make the most out of our time on every single island. Perfect balance of activities and down time. Highly recommended.
