Full description
Take a full-day Greek Island cruise from Athens and sail to the Aegean islands of Hydra and Poros in the Gulf of Aegina.

Departing from Marina Flisvos in Athens, sail across to Hydra, the beloved muse of painters, craftsmen, and photographers. The combination of its unique architecture, crystal clear waters, splendid crafts shops, and habit of getting about by donkey, make it one of the last examples of a living Mediterranean history.

After some free time to explore on your own, set sail for Aegina. Lunch will be served on board as you pass through the narrow strait separating the Peloponnese coast from Poros.

Known for its rich history, pistachio groves, lively fish market, and floating fruit and vegetable market, as well as picturesque seaside villages, Aegina was once a rival to Athens, and you can visit the majestic 5th-century BC Temple of the Goddess Aphaea overlooking the Saronic Gulf, regarded as the best preserved ancient temple of Greece.

Continue to Poros, the smallest of the 3 islands. Poros Town nestles quietly in the embrace of deep green pine forests and mildly scented lemon groves. A climb to the town’s Bell Tower affords unforgettable views.

But the day doesn’t end there! A traditional Greek folk show, featuring singers and dancers in original costumes form all over Greece will entertain you on the return journey to Marina Flisvos.
