Full description

Embark on a full-day cruise to west Kleftiko from Adamantas. Visit highlights, including Cape Vani and the Sykia cave. Enjoy Greek tapas on board with plenty of swimming and snorkeling stops en route.

Starting from Adamantas and sailing close to the east coast of the bay, you will pass the Christian catacombs, the colorful villages of Skinopi, the capital of ancient Milos and the place where the famous statue of Venus de Milo was discovered.  You will then reach Cape Vani, the bay which was home to one of the first metal mines in Milos. After seeing the old 19th-century mines, you will have the first swim at the bay of Kalogries in crystal clear turquoise waters. After swimming and having some fresh fruit, cakes and refreshments the skipper will set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos. After a quick swim, you will take the small motor-boat under a low passage made of lava rocks and visit the cave.  Head back to the boat and enjoy some ouzo with a variety of Greek homemade tapas. Finally, you will reach Kleftiko, the old pirates-lair. Snorkeling here is an amazing experience due to the underwater passages, caves and an unsurpassed water clarity. Back on the boat, refreshments and ice-cold beers will be waiting for you, followed by a delicious meal and dessert. After you eat you can take the dinghy and go explore the unique Kleftiko caves and passages.  Later, the boat will head east towards Gerakas bay, after a short swim, enjoy fresh fruit back on the boat. The cruise ends in the beautiful tranquil bay of Provatas around 7:00 PM. From there, you will travel back to Adamantas in just 15 minutes.

There aren’t enough positive words to describe this experience. I went with 6 of my closest friends to celebrate my 25th birthday. While we are a pretty diverse group of people, there was something to offer for everyone and the entire group said it was one of the best experiences of their lives. The guides we had were incredible and so friendly. They always wanted to make sure we were having a good time. They played music we wanted to hear (with high-quality speakers), recorded us on their go pro above and under water, and offered us endless food and drinks. They gave us breakfast and a buffet-style lunch with appetizers, along with beer and wine. The appetizers and lunch were homemade and delicious. They had four separate stops where we were anchored in the water and had the opportunity to jump off the boat to go swimming, snorkeling, and on small boat excursions where we explored caves and learned more about the history of Milos. Truly an unforgettable experience - you have to go!!!!

A MUST tour, especially of Kleftiko! Our captain Stavros and his aid Forest were incredibly friendly and catered to our every need. They kept repeating they were there to take care of us and help us enjoy the trip. The food was great (included nutella sandwiches, macaroni with octopus, potato salad, chicken, Greek salad, fresh fruit, and as many beers, wine, ouzo, soft drinks and water as we wanted. Stavros' tour of all the caves was incredible and hands down one of the best parts of our entire Milos trip. He was very knowledgeable and adept at guiding the dinghy into the narrow caves. Forest was our photo "paparazzi" and took great pics of our family on the boat and in the water. Stavros also took pics of us in the caves. Overall I can't say enough about the crew and all the places we stopped and saw. I highly recommend the full day tour so you can see multiple spots and don't feel rushed at any one.

The excursion was very good. The sailboat is phenomenal, we traveled in Beethoven and Stavros and Vasily were very nice and attentive. They continually offered us drinks and food, took many photos of us and made sure we had a good time. The landscapes and stops in the caves were phenomenal. And the food is very rich. Definitely highly recommended
