Overview

Discover three beautiful Greek islands on this full-day cruise from Athens. Sail to Poros, Hydra and Egina in the Saronic Gulf and enjoy free time at each island to stroll, sightsee and shop as you wish. A delicious lunch and Greek folklore show aboard your ship are included, and a guided excursion to Egina's ancient Temple of Aphaia is also available at your own expense. Upgrade to the VIP experience for access to an exclusive lounge with a welcome drink, as well as transfer from your hotel to port and private check-in.
  • Full-day cruise to Hydra, Poros and Egina from Athens
  • Enjoy free time to explore each island independently
  • Join a guided trip to the Temple of Aphaia on Egina island (own expense)
  • Relax with a Greek lunch, served on board your ship
  • Upgrade to the VIP experience for exclusive lounge access, a welcome drink, a shared transfer from hotel to port and private check-in
Begin your experience with a pickup (if option selected) 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 (if option selected) in Athens.

In the summer, you'll be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar.

It was an 11 hour day with most of the time (7 hours) in the boat. The stops at the islands were quite short, the tour guide kept trying to sell additional tickets to take guided tours on the islands, else you were on your own. We did not take any guided tour. Hydra was very beautiful. Poros stop was extremely short (45 min) that it was meaningless. Egina was beautiful and we enjoyed walking around. There are two bus tours, one that takes you to some archaeological sites and the other around the entire island. In hind sight we should have taken the second but I also feel that this should have been included in the tour considering the price paid for the tickets.

It was a day full of beauty, fun and great cruising, we were picked up exactly on time, the boat was big and very pretty, great staff ready to serv you and the lunch buffet was just awesome! All the 3 islands were so beautiful and the people were nice and friendly. When I come back I will do this trip again. As the end of the tour approached we had live entertainment where traditional Greek dances in the traditional attires were performed and we were all welcome to join.

This is a wonderful way to see some of the islands. Be sure to sign up for the tours, they are great!

If you want to see the islands but you are short on time, I highly recommend this tour. It is a long day, so bring what you need. I would recommend a sweater, because it was cooler in the morning but a bag to take the sweater off because once it hit around 11am it was really hot. We paid extra for the VIP upgrade and it was 100 worth it! Spend the money, you wont' regret it. The service is fantastic and you don't have to wait in any lines. There are alot of people on the boat and it was so nice to not have to wait for lunch, drinks or to get on and off the boat. The islands are also stunning, Hydra being our favourite.

When you get to Egina, I would recommend taking a taxi to the temple instead of utilizing the tours on the boat. You are on a large bus with tons of other tourists. We took a cab on our own and made it to the temple before everyone else and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.

This cruise was amazing. We payed extra for the VIP upgrade and it was worth every penny. All the crew went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant time, especially Kostas. You can't go wrong with this tour.

Overall I loved seeing the 3 islands of hydras, poros and aegina but the cruise ship was very crowded and the staff onboard was not always attentive. It was very overwhelming in the lower banquet area during lunch and I felt it could have been organized a little better.

The one day cruise to 3 islands is a wonderful experience. We went on board Anna Nour ship, great ship, excellent service on board at the VIP Lounge with Mr Costas who attended us excellent. Excursions were great. We did the Hydra walking excursion which was beautiful and interesting, we have been in Hydra but never had the chance to do it, and we did and no regrets. Poros island is very small and quite. Ego a cultural excursion was amezing, we will never get tired of doing it, the temple is beautiful and Saint Nectarious is unbelievable beautiful...

Great trip. I recommend getting the transport included. Our hotel wasn’t listed so I thought we couldn’t do it, but when I spoke to them to confirm the listing they arranged it for me. I just had to pay the difference when I got there. Otherwise, service was nice, the boat was nice and clean, and they alloted a good amount of time for each island.

Was a little surprised that we were just dropped off at the boat, but they explained everything we needed. Was a much bigger group then expected. Music and dancers on the cruise made it very fun!
