Full description
After meeting at Adamas port, set sail along the coastline and leave Milos bay behind. Pass by the traditional fishing villages of Skinopi, Klima, Areti, and Fourkovouni and admire their colorful little houses — called "Sirmata" — built by the seaside. Then, visit Arkoudes, a complex of lava rocks, which takes its name from its characteristic shape, a bear. Opening the sails, head to the impressive Cape Vani for your first swimming stop in the natural bay of Kalogries, ideal for diving from the catamaran into the transparent waters. From there, move on the stunning cave of Siki to enjoy the view and see the characteristic hole in the roof and entrance of the cave. Next, stop for 2 hours to swim in the famous old pirates' bay of Kleftiko with its numerous caves, white rocks, and transparent waters. The crew will guide you to the best caves to swim and snorkel to discover a wonder of colors and rock formations underwater. A well-deserved lunch will be served after your swim, cooked by the crew onboard and full of surprises. After that, stay south and make a final stop for swimming at Gerakas, a beach inaccessible by land. There, you'll find some hot springs on one side of the beach. Finally, disembark at Agia Kiriaki, where a van will be waiting to take you back to Adamas.

One of our favorite days in Milos. We booked last minute because our small private boat canceled due to weather and we’re glad it did. The crew skillfully captained us through massive swells due to the high winds, took us up to the edge of caves along the coast (even with the waves!), and cooked an amazing lunch at Kleftiko. The catamaran is plenty big for a larger group of people. We saw lots of other sailboats packed full, but we were all able to spread out and relax. Well worth the money. Thank you again for the amazing day!

Overall good experience which I would recommend, the sea was terrible but not organiser's fault. The time given for snorkeling was absolutely sufficient to enjoy the amazing places. Half-day tours are actually part of the full-day tour: we left the boat halfway with a little tender. Only this last part was quite disappointing.

Fantastic bays, well organized, the captain even cooks himself, the catering was great. To be recommended all around. Price-performance ratio is right!
