Shipwreck Cruise Full Day

Shipwreck Cruise Full Day


  • Visit the world famous
    “Panayiotis” shipwreck
  • Swim in the crystal clear
    waters of Smugglers Cove
  • See the well-known Blue


You will be
picked up and transferred to the main harbour of Zante town, where you will
join the cruise boat for an unforgettable experience cruising to the North of
the Island and back.


There will be a
guide/escort on board.  The crews are friendly and professional, offering
a good standard of service.


The boat will
cruise past the residential area of Krioneri, the resort areas of Tsilivi,
Alykanas and Alykes, up to Skinari, the most northern part of the island, where
you can see the lighthouse. Also, just off the port of Agios Nicholas at
Skinari there is a small island in the shape of a turtle, officially belonging
to the Vatican as it was not ceded to Greece along with the rest of the Ionian
Islands in the 18th Century. From this point our closest neighbor, Kefalonia,
can be seen.


Continuing, the
boat sails fairly close to the famous Blue Caves discovered in 1897. The name
comes from the colour of the water, a mixture of aquamarine and turquoise. This
area is also the deepest part of the Mediterranean called the Well of Ionysos,
which is about 4,500 meters deep.


Heading onto
Smugglers Cove, where the wreck of the ship “Panayiotis” can be seen, and a
stop for a wonderful swim in the lovely blue waters. Those strong swimmers
wanting to swim ashore can do so with the captain’s permission, as there is no
dock. The beach is not sandy, it has small white pebbles.  Smugglers cove
is only accessible by the sea. (Docking and swimming is weather permitting)


The boat will
now turn around and will cruise around the north coast and the captain will
make other swim stop(s) during the afternoon before arriving back at the port
in town at about 16.00.
