Full description
Starting from Adamantas and sailing close to the east coast of the bay, you will pass the Christian catacombs, the colorful villages of Skinopi, the capital of ancient Milos and the place where the famous statue of Venus de Milo was discovered.  You will then reach Cape Vani, the bay which was home to one of the first metal mines in Milos. After seeing the old 19th-century mines, you will have the first swim at the bay of Kalogries in crystal clear turquoise waters. After swimming and having some fresh fruit, cakes and refreshments the skipper will set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos. After a quick swim, you will take the small motor-boat under a low passage made of lava rocks and visit the cave.  Head back to the boat and enjoy some ouzo with a variety of Greek homemade tapas. Finally, you will reach Kleftiko, the old pirates-lair. Snorkeling here is an amazing experience due to the underwater passages, caves and an unsurpassed water clarity. Back on the boat, refreshments and ice-cold beers will be waiting for you, followed by a delicious meal and dessert. After you eat you can take the dinghy and go explore the unique Kleftiko caves and passages.  Later, the boat will head east towards Gerakas bay, after a short swim, enjoy fresh fruit back on the boat. The cruise ends in the beautiful tranquil bay of Provatas around 7:00 PM. From there, you will travel back to Adamantas in just 15 minutes.

What an amazing experience! The sailing trip was definitely a highlight of our trip to Milos. The guide Yiannis was so fun, funny and informative. Our captain was great - even though it was windy we didn't even notice as he expertly guided our boat to all the tops spots. The food was excellent and the drinks aplenty. Highly highly recommend.

Such an incredible tour. Stavros and Daniel were incredible friendly, fun, and informative. I am traveling solo and felt very welcome and comfortable with the crew and other guests. We hit all the must-see places along the coast, got close up with the caves, and had a perfect amount of time for snorkeling/swimming/tanning at multiple locations. Would definitely recommend!

Our guide George was a very entertaining guy. He told us many stories while exploring the little caves around Kleftiko in a dinghy which was a great experience. The food was super tasty and homemade - not your usual tourist menu stuff. We were only 12 people on the boat, and they required everyone to submit Covid certificates before the trip so it felt quite safe. A tiny negative is that we did not follow the original itinerary. This is 100% understandable and fine (depending on winds that day etc) but it should have been communicated better. When we went directly to Kleftiko, I was afraid that we would have to skip the visit to Sykia cave altogether. We did go back there later on which was great because it was less crowded. Be aware that we spent very little time around Milos rock, *the* picture spot of Kleftiko. If you are looking for the super instagramable photo of floating in the sea in front of that landscape, you may not get it on this trip. I still loved the experience overall!
