Full description
Begin your boat trip at 10 AM from the port of Parga. After 1 hour and 20 minutes, arrive at Antipaxos island where the boat stops near the beach, one of the most acclaimed in the Mediterranean Sea. Swim in a breathtaking natural bay, snorkel in the incredibly clear water, and gaze at the luxurious sailing yachts. Continue your journey past Kamara and Ortholitho to explore the western side of the island, which is inaccessible from land. Marvel at the incredible shapes and colors of the steep cliffs, and see enormous caves and occasionally dolphins passing by. Here, have the opportunity to swim in the Blue Caves for 30 minutes. Then, cruise to the east toward the capital of Paxi island, Gaios. Once there, enjoy 2.5 hours of free time to explore, shop, and eat in this secluded paradise that is characteristic of the Ionian Islands. Admire Gaios' charming architecture, and even swim again in one of the closest bays. At around 5 PM, the boat will bring you back to Parga.

A pleasant trip with 2 swimming stops in wonderful surroundings, as well as a longer stop in the town of Gaios for a snack and sightseeing on your own. Bring a diving mask! Would recommend the trip, but be aware that music is played throughout the trip, and there are a lot of people on the boat.

Really nice boat trip that includes 2 bathing stops, the blue lagoon and 3 hours in Paxos where you have time for swimming, a bite to eat and a drink. Paxos is a cozy little "town" with lots of small alleys & a nice harbor. On board the ferry there is most of the food & drink such as water, beer, wine, snacks, frappe ', toast etc. Toilets are available. Good with seating

I can only recommend this boat tour to everyone. It was a super relaxing day and for the money you can really see some beautiful places in Greece! The boat partly drives into the caves and stops at a total of 3 bays so that you can swim in the water. The cooling is simply wonderful and the water is so beautiful blue, you have to see it. Then we moored at the port of Paxos and were allowed to spend almost 3 hours there. It's really cute there and perfect for a bite to eat and a little walk through the little streets. For the money that the tour costs, you really get a whole day of fun and beautiful places to see! As far as I know, the tour can also be made from Corfu and Syvota. Have lots of fun with it
