    Great day trip! The boat ride was long to Hydra the furthest island and first stop If the day but totally worth the wait! The port/village was gorgeous and we had just enough time to wander around to the other side of the port and find a restaurant on a cliff with the most breathtakingly beautiful view of the other islands and beautiful blue waters, then had a swim off the rocks into the crystal blue warm waters before heading back to the ship. Next stop Poros was a very short stop but a great view coming into port. Had enough time to grab a few souvenirs, the kids a gelato from the great shop near where you get off and then we decided to sit in one of the restaurants and enjoy a local beer or two in the sunshine before heading back. Last stop was Aegina the largest of the islands. We choose to do the extra circular activity and caught a small boat over to Moni island and swim/drink in the beautiful blue waters which was amazing!
