An 8-day small ship cruise around the South Ionian Islands.
The Ionian Islands are an emerald scattering of seven main islands - Zante , Kefalonia , Atokos , Ithaca , Meganisi - found off the west coast of mainland Greece. The region is famed for pristine beaches, the unforgettable blue of the sea, and the lush Mediterranean landscape. Several lesser-known smaller islands make up this paradise cluster.

We will spend a week at sea, exploring the very best of this island cluster paradise, stopping in Poros, Agia Efimia, Vathi, Fiskardo, and Meganisi in a round trip from Zante.

This trip is best suited for those who want to set sail for discovery, heritage and historical sightseeing, the best of nature and deserted beaches, on-deck sea-view unwinding and the friendly atmosphere of a small ship cruise.

The friendly crew will attend to all your needs along the way. There are freshly prepared meals (Breakfast and Lunch), and all cabins include a private bathroom and air-conditioning.
Itinerary

8-day Zante South Ionian Islands Cruise

Day 1: Zante to Agios Nikolaos

As today is the arrival day and we don’t set sail from the Port until after sunset, you have plenty of time to explore the wonders of Zante Island. If you have time to see more of the island, don’t miss the chance to explore the Byzantine Museum, the National Marine Park in Laganás Bay.

In the evening, we get acquainted with our sailing home for the next few days and get settled in, starting by dining with a view of the ocean as we set sail towards Agios Nikolaos. Departure time is 17:00. Please try and arrive 30 minutes before.

Note: On the rare occasion of any issues that may result from late arrivals, there is a possibility that we do not depart Zante the next day, and instead set sail on Monday morning.

Day 2: Agios Nikolaos to Agia Efthimia

The rainfall on the Ionian Islands is what enables its lush and verdant landscapes to flourish. Think of thick forests, natural coves, green hills with olive groves, and ardent valleys that sit back-to-back with crystal clear waters and sparkling white beaches. In the evening, stroll the traditional Marina village and take your pick of Greek eats from the idyllic tavern-lined promenade, where you can watch the sunset. We head towards Agia Ethimia.

Day 3 Agia Efthimia - Ithaca (Vathi)

Nestled on the Ionian coastline of the Greece Mainland, Ithaca has been described as one of the region’s most beautiful villages. This is because of its two crystal clear bays that line either side of its main town and the iconic Venetian fortress that forms an impressive backdrop.
Known for its stunning natural environment that gives it an island feel. We will have lunch onboard, but stay in town for an evening of Greek feasting and hospitality.

Day 4: Ithaca to Meganissi

Not many people know of Meganisi, overshadowed by the main island of Corfu, but you will be glad you got to experience this lesser-known beauty spot. First, we fuel up with a lunch before stopping for some coastal relaxation time at some of the islands secluded. Go snorkelling in the turquoise waters, feel the pebbles under your feet, take a walk amongst the clifftop surroundings and visit the Town . We will dine at a pop-up beach tavern in a secluded bay tucked away from the crowds, and later watch the stars from the deck of the yacht.

Day 5: Meganissi to Fiskardo

With white pebble beaches, striking blue seas and lush green countryside, Fiskardo is one of Greece’s best-kept secrets. We will dock at the port of Gaios ready for a full day on the island. You can easily explore with a motorcycle, although it’s also easy by foot, bike or car too. Spend the day seeking out the secluded coves and bays for swimming. Watch the fisherman go about their work from one of the seafront cafes, before enjoying some of the best and freshest seafood at one of the excellent local tavernas that stock the best catch of the day.

Day 6: Fiskardo to Poros

Dotted with secluded bays and sea caves, with shallow waters for those keen to explore the underworld of the Ionian Sea, this part of Kefalonia Island is an explorer’s dream. Enjoy lunch on the vessel while we sail towards bustling Poros, the second largest village on the island set in a horseshoe bay to a backdrop of olive and cypresses trees. Visit the pebbled Kanoni beach and sandy Harami beach and wander amongst nature. Later, stroll the vibrant promenade along the seafront. Full of bars and tavernas Poros is the epitome of old school Greek charm. We will dock overnight at a picturesque bay here.

Day 7: Poros to Zante

Before we head back to the mainland of Zante Island, with free time to explore, we take the chance to fit in one more of Zante’s long sandy beaches. We visit the beautiful Shipwreck Beach and village on the east coast of the island, enjoying an onboard lunch on the way for some final sweeping sea views. We spend the night in the Marina of Zante Old Town, where we enjoy a Captain’s dinner with the group in our final farewell.

Day 8: Departure

This is the end of our adventure. We dock back in Zante at 09:00.
