Zakynthos: Island Day Trip with Turtles, Swimming, and Caves

1. Zakynthos: Island Day Trip with Turtles, Swimming, and Caves

t After a convenient pickup from your hotel, head to Kalamaki beach on Zante's southern shores. Enjoy the pristine beach with soft sand and warm waters, protected by National Marine Park. See where the endangered loggerhead sea turtles nest. You may spot tiny baby turtles breaking out of their shells. Next, head to Laganas beach to board the glass-bottom boat. Sail to the Keri Caves, carved by time, tides, and wind. Follow the coastline, admiring the white beaches, rock arches, forested hills, and enormous limestone cliffs that fall into the sea. Pass through the famous rock arch, Kamara.  Stop for a 20-minute swim just outside the entrance to a vast cave. Climb back on board to head to Marathonisi, known as Turtle Island, an exotic, green, and coincidentally turtle-shaped island. Enjoy an hour on the golden sandy beach where you can swim and snorkel. Head back and pass the famous Cameo island bridge. Enjoy the idyllic views of secluded beaches surrounded by steep white limestone. Enjoy a final stop at the award-winning Aristeon ecological olive oil press museum in Lithakia. Explore the history of olive oil making on the island with experts.  Enjoy free tasters of local olives and traditional bread with different flavored extra virgin olive oils (most likely lemon, orange, and garlic). Take a sample of olive oil shampoo, soap, body cream, or face cream. You can also buy these products to support local businesses.

In the tour we followed all the stages described. The operators come directly to pick you up at the hotel in a comfortable and clean air-conditioned van or coach. The drivers are courteous, very prepared and friendly, as well as available if you need a few more minutes or if you need a stop. The captain of the glass-bottomed ship is very good at finding turtles for you to see. The stops for swimming are of the right duration and in very beautiful places, even the tour of the caves is excellent and they try to give maximum visibility to all passengers with the boat, which are never too many compared to other tours that overload the ships. The oil museum is also nice and interesting. Highly recommended

This was a super fun day out. Our guide, Sakis, was so helpful, funny and all around a pleasure to have as a guide. The activities were well planned and everything went smoothly. The boat trip was incredible. So relaxing. The side activities did feel slightly rushed, I would have skipped the olive oil museum to have more time at one of the other stops, since it's a turtle tour. Museum was still interesting though with being able to taste different types of olive oil. Would recommend!

We had an amazing day got some great photos of turtles and had a swim in the crystal clear water,then had a snack and drink at turtle island before going back to tour of olive factory which was really interesting and had some tasters which were very nice,Our driver sakis was lovely and friendly and very knowledgable all in all a lovely day would definitely recommend

Very nice tour with a fabulous guide who could tell a lot about the island. The boat tour was very entertaining, but we felt very sorry for the turtles because countless boats drifted really close to a single turtle.

Great tour, explanations and guides at the top! Not disappointed! Fresh water and clean transport
