What you'll do
Join this adventure cruise to the small cyclades and explore secluded beaches, and untouched bays. Swim in pristine clear water, and relax onboard with a cold beer or a refreshing glass of wine.
Generally there are two main routes we can follow. Going south we will explore some beaches which is approachable only by boat or going west to visit Antiparos and its surroundings. Route is depending on weather conditions but if you have a preferences please talk with your captain at departure. Starting from Naxos Marina at 9:30 will give us the time to make 5-6 stops and explore with your captain the southern beaches of Naxos and an island of the Small Cyclades complex before returning at 18:00.
Our first stop will be at Rina's Cave approximately 45 min after departure. There you will have the opportunity to swim inside the cave (magnificent blue crystal clear water) or cliff jump from the top. Don't worry! Your captain can lead you to the cliff and jump with you, giving you guidelines to keep you perfectly safe. Also you can swim to the rocky beach of Rina and explore the surroundings. Returning to the boat you can always have same snacks and of course water, beer or some chill wine! Next stop is Panermos Palm Beach, this is the beach at the southern point that you can go by car (2 hours from town) but its an absolute must to see when coming to Naxos. Next, we will move to Ano Koufonisi, one of the most famous islands in Small Cyclades.
Here you will have a couple of hours to enjoy and explore the small town by feet and enjoy your launch in one of the traditional taverns. Your captain will advise you so you can enjoy your time here! After lunch we will visit the Kato Koufonisi. Depending weather and water conditions we will go to the North or South side of it so you can enjoy one more swim in the most blue-green water you've ever been. Kato Koufonisi is uninhabited and its beauty comes from it. There are so many small bays to explore going coast to coast.
On our way back we will make one quick stop to Agios Sostis. This is a small church hidden in a small bay! There is a myth for this church but we will not tell you now.. wait to visit this place and your captain will reveal the story to you! Last but not least we will make our final stop to one of the west beaches of Naxos for our last swim of the day! In each stop the captain will offer you some snacks with traditional Greek products. Also Water, beer and wine are provided during the day. Please drink responsible!

Sunbath on the deck, enjoy a refreshment or take your time for photo shooting.
At short distance of our first stop, we will find the next destination waiting to be explored. Take the snorkeling equipment we provide for you and make your moments unforgettable by taking photos with our waterproof camera! Keep in mind that we can change the schedule a little bit according to your liking, but remember, we still have two stops ahead of us.
We will give you free time to explore the surroundings of the chosen village, eventually have lunch in one of the local taverns (we can advise you!), or just relax with a coffee under the sun, the greek way. You organise this time as you wish, and come back at the given time to continue the adventure.
Last but not least, we will have the time for one more swim at another paradisaical beach or relaxation on the boat, enjoying a fruit salad and refreshments, before we start our way back to main Naxos port!
