Full description
The private round-trip tour starts with a pick-up in an air-conditioned minivan from your hotel in Athens to Lagonissi, where you'll board the rib boat. While your captain sails the boat, passing fast the stunning coast line of Attica, sit back and relax or simply soak up the sun.

You will head to Arsida and Pothitos, Fleves or Patroklos - small uninhabited islands with remote sandy beaches, where you can swim, snorkel or just relax. At Arsida island you will have the chance to snorkel and swim at its cave. You will see the magnificent sea world of Athens, one of the safest seas in the world without dangerous marine life and strong currents. The crew holds a professional underwater camera and, if you wish you can have your memories recorded and given to you at the end of the tour, free of charge. A scuba dive or a "discover scuba" program can be also arranged if you wish, at an extra cost. Complimentary snacks and fresh fruit are offered on-board.

After enjoying the sun and the sea, you'll board the rib and head to Sounio and the Poseidon temple. There you will explore the ruins and admire the stunning views. Sounio is located on the southernmost tip of Attica, the end point of the Athenian Riviera, at a 69km distance from Athens. It is noted as the site of ruins of the ancient temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The ruins bear the deeply engraved name of English romantic poet Lord Byron. After the visit to the temple, you will head back to your hotel in the mini van.
