Description

Take a day cruise from Athens to the fabulous Greek islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina for a relaxing day on the sea. Sit back and enjoy your leisurely day cruise with free time on each island to explore. First, you'll set sail for the island of Poros, where you'll have free time for strolling and shopping. Head ashore at the colourful capital and enjoy around two hours to look around on your own.

As you approach the island of Hydra admire the colourful harbour and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. You will have about 1.5 hours at leisure to enjoy the unique charms of Hydra island, whose amphitheatre shape once served as a safe shelter for Saronic Pirates. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops. From the decks, you will be able to admire the very special architecture and dramatic landscapes of this island, whose old traditional stone houses and mansions silently stand witness to a long and turbulent history.

Upon arrival in Egina, a guided excursion to Egina's ancient Temple of Aphaia is also available at your own expense or take a walk around the main town. Aegina is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece in the Saronic Gulf. The lovely island is only 31 miles (50 kilometres) from Athens and is a popular getaway for Athenians during the summer months. 

Return to your cruise boat and sit down to enjoy a Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to the port. After an hour at sea, disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off (if option selected) in Athens.

VIP Cruise Experience: Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge. Start with a transfer from the hotel to the port, enjoy a private check-in with fast track entry and then relax in the VIP lounge. Enjoy a welcome drink and savour a buffet lunch in the VIP dining room which is located in a separate area from standard class passengers as well as unlimited water, filtered coffee and soft drinks. The VIP area is equipped with Wi-Fi, and on the second deck, a tax-free luxury goods store awaits. In the summer, you'll be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar. A choice between a walking tour in Hydra or a Panoramic tour in Aegina is also included.
