SEA PACKAGE

Diamond Zakynthos Highlights - Private cruise around the island

Whole day tour (8 am – 5.30 pm)

The private tour starts in the early morning, when you are collected by luxury mini bus, to be transferred to Zante Town. Upon arrival the relaxation begins as you board the open speedboat in the picturesque harbor and feel your worries melt away as you enjoy the amazing harbor skyline and the bright turquoise seas of the Ionian beckon, while your guide points out the places of interest, with nice historical and flora and fauna information. We will make our way to Xingia sea spa. The turquoise blue sea here contains traces of sulfur and collagen. The sulfur and collagen pours down from the mountains into the sea and has been proven to offer significant health benefits. A swim in the healthy waters, will revitalize your energy and polish your skin. Many visitors have reported feeling younger and relaxed due to this natural phenomenon in the North of Zakynthos.

Next on the itinerary is a stop into the beautiful Blue Caves, to take photos of the sea caves and arches, as well as the stunning translucent blue waters. Those who wish to fully experience the phenomenon of the Blue Caves can take a dip in the blue waters. Your whole body takes on the blue hues but do not worry though, this is just an optical illusion and the blue hue will disappear once out of the water. We then sail towards shipwreck bay and as one of the first arrivals to Shipwreck Bay, we enjoy a very peaceful, and often exclusive, time on the famous Shipwreck Beach.

After the fascinating views and stories told about the Shipwreck, it’s time to explore another secret jewel for more swimming, before we make our way for lunch to Porto Roxa. Porto Roxa is like an untouched pearl and is situated in a small fiord outlet in between 2 cliffs. Beautiful unspoiled setting with the most wonderful Greek traditional Taverns. Back on board the speed boat, it’s time to harmonise with the last chords of this symphonic tour as we sail towards the outstanding beauty of the rock formation the Mizithres. We will sail in between those two iconic rock formations, on our way to towards the photogenic Marathonisi island, better known as Turtle island. Here the boat stops for photographs while your guide explains all about this amazing white sandy beach and island, known for its importance as a nesting area of the Caretta Caretta loggerhead turtles. From here we go for last part of the tour as we create your turtle spotting adventure, we nearly always have the chance to take a snapshot of these enchanting animals up close, in an eco-friendly manner. Our private cruise around this island is an amazing odyssey, of Mother Nature at its best; a unique Zakynthian trip that will create memories to last a lifetime.

    Paid for private tour to shipwreck bay and blue caves. Our tour guide was Takis. He was amazing with his information about the island, where he was born and has lived ever since. Got to Shipwreck Bay before the hoards arrived!!! Then went to the Blue Caves. Being in such a small boat we were able to go right inside, which was amazing. We then went to Zingia Beach, which is a natural sea spa, rich in sulphur and collagen. Be aware, it does smell!!! Lovely to swim in it and feel the hot and cold water. Would thoroughly recommend this Company. They were all very helpful in helping us to decide what to do

    I have visited Tsilivi many times over the past 14 years and thought that I had seen everything there was to see. That was until I went on Jackie’s tour along with 11 of my family. Jackie is an absolute delight and a wealth of knowledge. It was my birthday that day and she made it so special. I can’t wait to join her on other tours again next year. My whole family fell in love with the island and are looking forward to returning too. Don’t miss out on this tour.

    Last month, my family went on a cruise that stopped on Zakynthos for a day. None of the cruise’s excursions on Zakynthos were especially appealing, and an independent tour we had booked ended up getting cancelled, so the day before we were supposed to arrive on Zakynthos, we got in touch with Nefis Travel to see if they had any tours available for the next day.
    We corresponded with both Mariska and Jackie, who were so patient with us — we were concerned that the tour they had available was supposed to return to the port only one hour before our cruise ship was scheduled to depart, and we were worried about a delay that would cause us to miss that departure. With a few Nervous Nellies in our group, we hemmed and hawed about whether or not to do the tour; all the while, Mariska and Jackie patiently, politely, and thoroughly answered all of our questions (emailing with us late into the evening), and reassuring us that they’d worked with many cruise ship passengers in the past and knew how important it was to get back to the ship on time.
    Finally, we decided to book the tour — VIP Zakynthos Highlights. We are so glad that we decided to book the tour; everything about it was wonderful — we saw so much more of the island than we expected we’d see in just a day, the stops and transfers to the speedboat were seamless, and most importantly, Jackie was an amazing guide — telling us stories and history, and even singing for us!! In a vacation full of highlights, our day on Zakynthos ranked amongst the best. And of course, we made it back to our cruise ship on time! We hope to make it back to Zakynthos and if we do, we will certainly book another tour with Nefis Travel!

    Good afternoon Jackie and all your lovely team, Sorry not to have written sooner, but as you know it is always hectic when you get home from a holiday. Firstly I hope you are feeling better. It was a shame that we did not get the chance to have a real chat. Hopefully next time. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Nefis, what a wonderful team of people you all are.I cannot praise you all enough. Everything from the communication before our trip, the transportation, the venues and the amazing itineraries were all spot on. You helped to make our holiday even more spectacular. All of our drivers were friendly and knowledgeable and always had a smile on their faces and were great company. The trip around the island was such a memorable day for all of us, and a special thank you has to go to the wonderful Jo, who really went the extra mile to make sure our day was perfect. Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to her. I will be writing a review on trip advisor and I’m sure that we will be in contact with you again when we return to beautiful Zakynthos. Kind regards & Best wishes,

    From the start, Jackie was extremely pleasant in communicating with me and reserving our private tour for 2 to the shipwreck, blue caves and Zante town. Even though we did not speak for months, as soon as we arrived to the airport, the kindest tour guide, Takis, was already there to greet us and pick us up to begin with our adventure! He was amazing at all times and shared with us many interesting details about different things and places on the island. We arrived and swam at Navagio Beach before the crowds, just as promised, and it was perfect to be alone in the beach taking in all the beauty! We had a great tour to the Blu Caves even with rough seas and Xigia Beach was an amazing experience with all the sulfur and collagen making the water really warm and cold at the same time. After our lovely meal, we decided to relax at Tsilivi beach instead of walking in the town and that was another awesome suggestion by Takis and Jackie. We were then taken to the airport for our flight back to Athens and we could not have been more thankful to the Nefis travel team for making this day magical and unforgettable.

    I recently booked a one day private trip for my girlfriend and I with Nefis. In advance of the holiday they helped with the booking via email and handled all questions very efficiently. On the day itself our guide, Spiros, was fantastic and gave great information about the island. Having a motorboat to ourselves was a great way to see the Shipwreck, the Blue Caves and the spa. I would recommend Nefis to anybody organising a trip in Zakynthos.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nefis Travel

Zakynthos Zante

Will you pick me up from my holiday resort?

Yes, we have pick up transfers from nearly all the Zakynthos resorts but please keep in mind that South Vassilkos and the Harbour of Keri are remote areas in Zakynthos. We will do our very best to give you the pickup service transfer with a small extra cost, but we do ask cooperation in being flexible with the days and cannot guarantee a pick up from these areas.

Can I participate in the VIP tours, with my rental car?

You can join our boat trips with your rental car. You can book tickets by email or through our booking form and meet us at the port where we will board our Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour and the Turtle Spotting tour. In this way you have the freedom of your own transport and you will enjoy arriving at the Shipwreck bay before the crowds, see the turtles in an eco-friendly way and help the turtles in their fight for survival.

How do I book a tour?

You can book your tours by email, Whats App or at our Nefis Travel Zakynthos facebook page by personal messages. Jackie and Mariska will answer you on a 24-7 basis. You can also use our website’s booking form (you can find it on each tour’s informational page) to send a booking request for your desired tour and date.

How can I pay?

You can pay upon arrival at the ticket delivery service on your arrival day, one of our team members will come to your holiday address to take care of it all. You can pay by Credit Card in the offices in Tsilivi or by signing an Authorized Credit Card form. If you have an IBAN number then you can also easily pay into our bank account. If you pay by Credit Card or bank account, we will send the tickets to you by email with the explanation of where the pick-up point for the tours will be. The choice is yours.

Are the tours child friendly and what is considered child age?

Our child age is normally 12 years but can be flexible if families are travelling with teenagers. We have very child friendly tours:
On our VIP "Once upon a time" tour the children and young at heart will step back in time and by interactive stories will enter the world of Aesop and his enchanting and inspiring stories. They will learn a little Greek poem and while we sit around the camp fire singing songs, you might drift away to your own childhood memories…
On our VIP Eco-friendly turtle spotting tour, we will have a presentation from the Sea Protection Society Archelon where the children will learn about the high endangered Caretta - Caretta Turtles and in a pirate game they will also learn a few facts about Odysseus while looking for the treasure.
At our VIP "Back to the roots" tour they will hear a few nice short Greek mythology stories and see and learn how Zakynthian olive oil and local sweet are made. They can sing along with the live music over lunch and the tour has many stops, what means that they will be out and about and entertaint the whole day. Many of our little Nefis friends have send us beautiful drawings, from this unique tour afterwards.
At our VIP Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour the children might see dolphins or our Monachus Monachus seals and get guided with nice stories about Zante. On certain days they will be able to enter a pirate game at the Smugglers Cove, please do ask about this opportunity! Our family tours are designed to spark a passion, inspire a sense of wonder, and enrich understanding.

What happens if the sea conditions are not okay for a tour?

We at Nefis Travel provide the highest level of customer service given on the island. If the weather reports are bad, we will cancel the tours and give you a refund.
If the weather shows a 50-50 situation, we will phone you on your mobiles or at the hotels before the tour starts and tell you that we might have to use an alternative program. This only happens on the Shipwreck and Blue Caves tours. The east coast of the island as in Blue Caves and Xingia Sea Spa and the west coast as in Shipwreck beach is possible to have 2 totally different sea conditions.
Our captains will check the situation early in the morning and if we see that the Blue Caves and Xingia Spa, east coast are okay but around cape Skinari on our way to the west coast, the sea doesn’t allow us to go to the Shipwreck beach, we will create Plan B:
Plan B: We will go to the Shipwreck platform by bus so you'll see the Shipwreck from above and we will offer extra time at the Blue Caves for pictures and swimming, and go to the Xingia Sea Spa after our lunch stop. We will tell you honestly what the situation is and leave the choice to you. You can swap your trip around and go on another day, take a refund or decide to come.
From our experience those who came on these few rare days that this happens in the summer, still had a great day out. And as we said it is a 50-50 situation sometimes the wind drops, while we drive to the harbor and we can still sail to the Shipwreck beach. We at Nefis Travel just want to be as straight forward about as we can be and will always be honest about the weather conditions.
