Visiting the islands of Hydra, Poros, and Egina from Athens in a day is challenging, especially without chartering a boat or taking multiple ferries. This cruise makes it possible aboard one comfortable ship, and includes time to stroll and shop on each island. Relax with pre-arranged tickets and timings, enjoy an onboard lunch, take island tours (at your own expense), and upgrade for VIP boarding and lounge access.
What to Expect
After pickup in central Athens or your Athens hotel by air-conditioned coach, head for Piraeus port.

Relax as you cruise to Poros, taking time on route to either sign up for tours on Egina (Aegina) or Hydra (both own expense) or decide to explore independently. If you’ve upgraded, enjoy extra-comfortable transportation, private check-in, VIP lounges in port and onboard, a welcome drink, buffet lunch in a VIP dining room, Wi-Fi, and access to the ship’s sun deck.

At Poros, get free time to enjoy the tavernas, shops, and other attractions. After lunch on board, cruise to Hydra and Egina. Dock at each island to stroll and shop independently, or take the optional Hydra walking tour or Egina bus tour (both at your own expense) to the classical Temple of Aphaia.

Finally, enjoy an onboard folklore show as you cruise back to Athens for drop-off at your departure point.

Beautiful way to spend a day!

Beautiful scenery, lovely little shops to get the freshest olive oil and pistachios. Never got to Hydra due to strong winds and high seas made docking dangerous. Would have loved to go and were offered the same trip next day but we were leaving for...More

It's all about money but do it anyway

If you understand it's all about money then you can enjoy this trip. I would estimate a full cruise would yield around 25,000 euros after commission is paid to all the tour operators who all sell this trip at varying prices. From the 30k they...More
