Full-day cruise (9:30- 19:00) , Daily from May to September
The cruise starts at 9:30 from the port of Adamas. We start our circumnavigation of the island heading northwest towards Cape Vani, an impressive 30-meter tall rock behind which the old 19th-century iron mine operated. We continue sailing along the west side of the island, passing the bay of Triades and Ayios Ioannis, till we reach our first swim stop, Sykia, the biggest cave in Milos. A short photo stop in front of the spectacular cave entrance and we will then stop in the bay to the south of the cave, an old volcanic crater, with colorful volcanic rocks, crystal clear emerald waters; one of the best snorkeling points of the island. Brunch will be served when you come up from your swim.
Next destination, Kleftiko, the most famous place in Milos. The name actually means a place of thieves and derives from the fact that it was used for centuries by pirates as a hideout and lair. Apart from its’ pirate history, this unique combination of white and grey rocks creates one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Snorkelling here is an amazing experience complete with underwater passages, caves and unsurpassed water clarity. You will be provided with masks, flippers, underwater cameras and a few tips about what you can do. Refreshments and ice-cold beers will be waiting for you when you get back to the boat accompanied by many delicious snacks.
Leaving Kleftiko, we continue sailing the south Milos, passing by the bay of Gerontas, Provatas, and the famous beaches of Fyriplaka and Tsigrado, till we reach our next swim stop, the impressive bay of Gerakas, one of the best beaches in Milos, accessible only by boat.
The trip continues along the south side of the island till we reach the east and Theiorychia, where the abandoned 1870’s sulfur mines still stand creating a magnificent landscape. We take some photos and continue towards the island of Poliegos, the largest uninhabited Greek island and home to some of the most impressive waters in the Mediterranean. Our main stop in this amazing island is the area of Galazia nera, or blue waters. The transparency and fluorescent colour of the sea are beyond words making this one of the best beaches in the whole of Greece! Here we will enjoy our swim and a delicious lunch prepared freshly on board.
Our next stop is Glaronisia, the seagull islands. This uninhabited island is a rare geological phenomenon consisting, completely, of hexagonal-shaped lava rocks. A short photo stop here to admire the landscape and feed the seagulls.
The final part of our trip consists of sightseeing in the bay of Adamas. Sailing close to the east coast of the bay, we will then pass the ‘Arkoudes’, the impressive 20ft bear-shaped rocks at the entrance of the bay to the east and continue to the fisherman villages of Fourkovouni, Areti and Klima, the capital of ancient Milos and where the statue of Venus de Milo was discovered. While you take beautiful photos you can also learn some historical facts about the island, as a part of our guided tour.
Our cruise ends with the sun in the back and beautiful sunset colours. We return to Adamas port around 19:00.
This large catamaran features innovation and clever design yet also builds on the experience and traditions of the lagoon line of catamarans. The Lagoon 410s2 features a vast galley-living area with the characteristic Lagoon large windows and 360-degree vista. The galley and salon common area opens directly via glass sliding doors to the cockpit and creates a great brilliant vantage point and clear visibility from the helming area where all sail controls are brought back. An electric winch increases the ease, efficiency and safety of managing mainsail loads.
The cockpit is well protected by the salon roof and is a superb focal point for night time entertaining and the day’s activities. She is an ideal and well-proven performer and perfect for charter.
