1. From Kioni: Ithaca Island Monastery & City Walking Day Tour

Together we will visit the capital of the island Vathy, where you can join the locals to take coffee at the main square, explore the quaint narrow streets or visit the local museum. As the home of the Greek King, Odysseus, Ithaca is stepped in Greek mythology ready for you to discover! At the highest point of the island sits Kathara Monastery, which provides the perfect setting for you to take incredible photographs of the whole island before we head down to the idyllic town of Stavros; a typical village where you can truly appreciate the local charm of this amazing island, where it appears that time stood still. Some of the sights in Stavros are the beautiful church of Sotiras which stands in the central square of the village and the archaeological museum. Lunch will be enjoyed in the harbour side town Κioni. Here you will be met with a wonderful choice of traditional taverns where you can have lunch next to the sea. Seeing the place gives you a better understanding of what you have read about it, it is clear why Ithaca, a rough and rugged land surrounded by magic and colourful coves, gave birth to the brilliant, resourceful, ingenious Odysseus.

We had an amazing day out on this trip last week. The crew were both very friendly and we were lucky enough to have six other like minded guests who were very easy to get on with. We stopped four times throughout the day to visit beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots only accessible by boat. There were two paddle boards which were also fun to use and explore the various coves and beaches. The lunch was nice and there was plenty on offer to drink. If you are considering a day sailing from kefalonia, I would definitely recommend this trip!

The cruise was very nice. A large boat which made our voyage smooth. The stops were good and surely take advantage of the swim stops. Note the direction of the sun if you need to worry about it as it gets quite hot. Only issue was that we were not on the inventory of passengers. But they let us on board when I showed them the online booking confirmation.

Really nice day trip with stops to beautiful, secluded coves and beaches. Evan and Vaggelis were great, very friendly and engaging. In addition to piloting the boat, they prepared a nice snack and lunch, and they provided equipment including snorkeling gear and paddle boards.

The day boat trip was amazing. Kefalania was beautiful and it had great shops. The beaches we swam on where amazing. The boat had a snack bar with food and drink that you can purchase. I would definitely recommend this tour and do it again.

Wonderful day out, the boat is v comfortable, you visit some of the most beautiful beaches and bays in Greece and the crew Evan and Vangellis are relaxed, friendly and attentive.
