Part 1: Arrival at the port of a small village or in Kalamata's Port
Depending on the availability of the boat, you'll arrive either in a small, coastal village in Navarino Bay or at the Port of Kalamata and meet Maria, a passionate food lover and local host, and then your boat captain, who will welcome you with a great smile!

You’ll take an amazing boat ride in Navarino Bay or in Messinian Gulf. Whatever the case it may be, in both experiences, you will discover the history of the islands and the area, while you’ll enjoy the ride.
