Hydra, Poros and Aegina Full-Day Cruise
Discover three beautiful Greek islands on a full-day cruise to Hydra, Poros and Aegina, and enjoy a peaceful day far from the hustle and bustle of Athens.
Hydra, Poros & Aegina Full-Day Cruise
We'll pick you up from your hotel in the centre, coastal area and port of Athens between 6 and 7:15 am. Next we'll head to the Port of Piraeus, from which our cruise to Poros will set sail. During the journey, your English-speaking tour escort will explain the main characteristics and history of the three islands.
Enjoy the breeze of the Mediterranean on a 2-hour boat ride until you get to the islet, which is the smallest of the three islands. Here, you'll have time to explore the sights at your own pace: don't miss visiting Trinzia, the Russian shipyard, and walking along Lemonodassos, a lemon and orange tree grove.
Climb back on the boat and enjoy unparalleled views of the sea on the hour-long journey to Hydra, an old refuge for Saronic pirates. Upon arrival at Hydra’s port you will time to explore its picturesque narrow streets, marvel at its mansions and relax at one of its agreeable cafés. What's more, you'll have the opportunity to make the most of the beautiful beach, sunbathing and enjoying a dip in the sparkling azure sea.
Back on the boat and after lunch, you can relax on deck as we sail to the island of Aegina, a popular getaway destination for Athenians during the summer months. Once on the island, you will have the opportunity to visit the Temple of Aphaia on your own and walk around the city enjoying its tranquillity.
On the way back to Athens, enjoy a traditional Greek dance and music performance.
Once you reach Piraeus Port, you will take a bus back to Athens and arrive at the hotel at around 7 pm.
