Tour around the island
The traditional boat POSEIDON makes daily cruises around the island. It is a magnificent excursion and a unique experience, worth experiencing. You will have the chance to see unique landscapes and swim in crystal clear waters.
The boat leaves from the port and is directed to Fokospilia. It is the first stop of our trip. Inside the cave there is a hidden beach where you can swim and see the seals that live there.
Next stop is the beach of St. Basil. It is a secluded bay where we stay for one hour for swimming and sunbathing.
Then we are heading to Panormiti, where passengers can visit the homonym monastery. This is a significant monastery with exquisite frescoes and a magnificent wooden temple worth seeing.
We leave Panormiti and head to the small island of Sesklo where lunch buffet is offered. It is worth mentioning that the captain himself prepares lunch, as he is an excellent cook. Drinks are free (wine or ouzo and beverages).
After lunch and a 3 hour stay at Sesklo, we continue for the last stop on our trip, the beach of Agios Georgios Dysalona. It's a stunning beach as a rock of 300 m. height rises above it! Coffee and cookies are offered by the crew of POSEIDON after swimming.
And we return to the port of Symi having spent a wonderful day full of images of unparalleled beauty.
Please note that stops round the island may change according to weather conditions. In this case we inform passengers before starting.
Combining mountain and sea
For those who love nature, exploring and walking, we suggest an alternative excursion that combines mountain climbing, descending to the sea and sailing...
If your physical condition allows it, the experience will be unforgettable. The tour takes place in May, June, September and October, when weather conditions are ideal for hiking.
This is an organized hiking trip. It starts from the port and is accompanied by a guide. The hiking lasts 2.5 hours and passes through mountain trails, which reveal the unique beauties of the mountainous Symi countryside. The hiking ends at Saint Aemilianus. It is a small island which is joined to the mainland through a narrow path. This is also the spot where POSEIDON awaits hikers. We offer lunch and back at the port
