Private Day Cruise from Athens to Hydra
The best way to visit Hydra

An amazing day out cruising to the Greek island of Hydra and swimming the most beautiful blue waters; on a private boat booked for your party only.​
​ Start the day with a private transfer* from your hotel to the marina to meet up with your captain and embark on the newly built (2020) luxury fast boat. Taking advantage of the boat speed you will enjoy multiple stops at the most exclusive spots of the islands.​
​ Cast off! Feel the cool sea breeze as the boat slices through the Aegean Sea. The island of Hydra is 35 n.miles from Athens; cruising through the clear blue sea and passing beautiful islands and reefs your cruise to Hydra includes a swim stop at a secluded beach.

Swim Stop!
Secluded beach

Enjoy swimming and a light snack on board – bask in the sun and take in the amazing scenery. On this private boat trip your skipper will take you to secluded beaches, stunningly beautiful and only reachable by boat.
The uncrowded and pristine beaches will allow you to feel the essence of the Aegean Sea - the beauty and serenity.
On board an assortment of light snacks and soft drinks will be available. With a cold drink in hand sunbathe and unwind!

Island of Hydra
One of the most beautiful Greek islands!

Next stop of the cruise is the island of Hydra. Considered one of the prettiest port towns of the Aegean with large stone mansions of exquisite architecture overlooking the harbour. Hydra is one of the only Greek islands that no wheeled vehicles are allowed on. There are no cars and no scooters. Just tiny marble-cobbled lanes, donkeys, rocks, and sea.
Stroll the waterfront and explore the beauty of the island; see why Hydra has been attracting world renowned artists since the early 60’s up to today.​ Hydra, against the tide, has managed to retain its style and character unspoilt by modern development and tourism. It is a hidden gem amongst the Greek islands.

Straits of Poros
The narrow straits!

In the early afternoon, the cruise back to Athens is another highlight of the day as you cross the beautiful straits of Poros; these narrow straits separate the island of Poros and the Peloponnese. The unique setting makes the crossing of the straits spectacular. Navigating through the straits, on your left you will see the Peloponnese and the small village of Galatas, on your right the island of Poros and its beautiful houses built amphitheatrically as if climbing the mountain side.
