Full description

Bright and early in the morning, set sail for your first stop Polis Beach. While there, take the opportunity to see the eastern shore of Kefalonia, including its beautiful bays. Your first stop rewards you with stunning coastal views, complete with a marvelous pebbled shore and crystal clear, beautiful water. Your time at Polis Beach eventually concludes with a snack and a drink, before you set sail for Kioni Village - a neoclassical gem flowing amphitheatrically down to the sea. As you sail north along Ithaca’s coast, take in views of the popular village of Fiscardo in Kefalonia. Continuing to sail, approach Kioni for a long stopover. As you enjoy your swimming/snorkeling, the crew prepares a traditional Greek lunch. This lunch is later served on board along with soft drinks, beer, and local wine. Following lunch, continue sailing to the east coast of Ithaca, enjoying views of the magnificent Vathy Bay as well as other charming beaches. Your next destination is Gidaki Beach, considered by many to be the best beach in Ithaca. The turquoise blue waters and the natural landscape with its scenic, lush vegetation impress every visitor. The bay is open, ideal for swimming from one side to the other. Over the water, you can see one of the small islands of Ithaca, Atokos. As you enjoy the sun or swim around, your crew prepares a variety of fruit for dessert. Following this, we set sail back to Agia Efimia where your arrival at the port is estimated at 6:20 PM.

We had an amazing day out on this trip last week. The crew were both very friendly and we were lucky enough to have six other like minded guests who were very easy to get on with. We stopped four times throughout the day to visit beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots only accessible by boat. There were two paddle boards which were also fun to use and explore the various coves and beaches. The lunch was nice and there was plenty on offer to drink. If you are considering a day sailing from kefalonia, I would definitely recommend this trip!

We had a great long day visiting three different places to stop and swim. This meant we spent a long time moving and there is very little room to sit on the deck. Also, I felt the food offered was very basic and it wouldn't have taken too much skill to make something a little more appetising. The drinks were a little slow to be offered as well. However, it didn't spoil what was a lovely day but you did ask.

Really nice day trip with stops to beautiful, secluded coves and beaches. Evan and Vaggelis were great, very friendly and engaging. In addition to piloting the boat, they prepared a nice snack and lunch, and they provided equipment including snorkeling gear and paddle boards.
