Why we chose this tourOur Aegina, Poros, and Hydra Cruise from Athens offers visitors the chance to sample all that these delightful hidden gems have to offer. Sail across the Saronic Gult to visit classical temples, quaint local shops, and beautiful unspoiled beaches. Learn about the pirates that used to traverse these waters, and finish your day with a delightful live show on your way back to the port.
Our Aegina, Poros, and Hydra Cruise from Athens is available every day, April through October, and allows you to explore some of the most interesting islands surrounding Athens, Poros, Hydra, and Aegina. You’ll depart from the port, sailing straight for the island of Poros. Your day begins with some free time to check out some of the local sights, like the clock tower or Temple of Poseidon, or indulge in some shopping for artisinal jewelry or glass handicrafts. After soaking in the relaxed atmosphere of this low-key island escape, it’s time to head to Hydra. Spend your hour and a half here checking out this historical pirate hideaway that’s covered in exquisite mansions and traditional town houses. Say hello to the donkeys the locals use as transport; the only vehicles on Hydra are garbage trucks and ambulances!
Last, but not least, the boat will cruise from Hydra over to the unspoiled island of Aegina, the previous capital of Greece, where you can join a tour of the Temple of Aphaia or stroll around the town itself. If you choose to visit the goddess-mother’s temple, take a long look at the pediments: these shelf-like protrusions showcase the sculptural prowess of the temple’s builders. If you’re looking to discover more of the island, you can venture to the smaller fishing villages that line the coast or explore one of the island’s many museums, monuments, or ruins. When you’ve had your fill of Aegina, or at least the free time you’ve been given, hop back on the ship for a live show with music and dancing while you head back to the port.
