About The Tour

Get on board and cruise through the three islands of Argosaronikos Bay: Hydra, Poros and Aegina to live a unique experience. You will get to know people from all over the world, dance and sing with a live band and of course taste traditional Greek dishes and drinks.

Overview

Island of Hydra
Hydra is known as the island of the international jet set, the island of the captains and artists and will enchant you with its cosmopolitan aura. A stroll through its narrow cobbled stoned alleys is a must. Due to the prohibition of wheeled vehicles on the island which makes it unique, you can hire a donkey, bicycle or a horse carriage for exploring the island. We stay there for 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Island of Poros
We wave goodbye to Hydra and sail towards the second island of our cruise, the calm Poros, which is also a popular tourist resort. Poros is an island of unique natural beauty. It is full of trees and surrounded by sandy beaches. You will wonder through the picturesque alleys of the traditional town of Poros and shop from many colorful souvenir tourist shops or enjoy the local delicacies.  We stay on the island for almost an hour.

Island of Aegina
Our last destination is the “lady” Aegina which exudes energy derived from ancient temples and byzantine stone chapels. You will marvel the neoclassical houses and monuments, the vintage innovation of float grocery stores and enjoy romantic strolls, have a cup of coffee while walking through galleries, tourist shops and picturesque cafes. Afterwards, you will return to our ship where the live band waits to entertain you with folklore music and dance. You can buy the famous delicious pistachios of Aegina before departing. Our stay on the island will last two hours.

  1. Cultural Tour – Aphaia & Agios Nektarios

Crossing the island by bus and while the experienced guides provides all the relevant information about the island of Aegina, history and pistachio wise, the passenger anticipates visiting the famous ancient temple of Aphaia alongside with the monastery of St. Nektarios.

First stop, the Archaeological sanctuary of Aphaia, which is one of the most impressive buildings of the post-archaic period. The temple dominates the area and it was founded by the Aegineans to commemorate the Minoan deity Aphaia, daughter of Zeus and Carme. The temple is of a Doric rhythm, one of the best-preserved temples in Greece. It is considered by many the model which the architects of Parthenon had in their minds. Moreover, it is said that together with the temple of Parthenon in Acropolis, Athens and the temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio, are forming a sacred isosceles triangle, one of the greatest mysteries of the Greek antiquity.

Licensed guide gives a detailed tour inside the archaeological area and the stop lasts half an hour.

Second and final stop, the Monastery of St. Nektarios. The Monastery of Saint Nektarios was built around 1904-1907 by St. Nektarios, the Bishop of Pentapolis. St. Nektarios lived in the monastery and died in 1920. In 1961 he was declared a Saint. The church’s architectural style is basilica with a dome, same with the one of Santa Sofia in Istanbul. The monastery is a convent for women and 14 nuns live in it. The memory of the Saint is celebrated on November 9th and once more on the 3rd of September.
