About

Fancy cruising Zante's waters in search of its most famous residents – loggerhead sea turtles. Cast out to sea and you'll pass by the golden beaches of Vassilikos before sailing towards Marathonisi, a pine-clad islet nicknamed ‘Turtle Island'. Keep a look out for loggerheads and for dolphins, too. Next, you'll cruise to the Keri peninsula and drop anchor for a swim stop. Come ashore and there's free time to explore the small village of Keri. On the return cruise there's a chance to swim in a hidden bay and you may even spot some more turtles. What's more, conservation group Archellon will be on board to tell you about their work. Read More
