ZANTE ZAKYNTHOS CRUISE

CRUISE AROUND ZAKYNTHOS - ISLAND TOUR BY BOAT

Group cruise around Zante on a big cruise boat

The Zakynthos Cruise Around the Island is organized on a big cruise boat. If you want to enjoy the Shipwreck without the crowds, check our Zakynthos - Zante boat trip VIP Shipwreck and Blue Caves tour.

The whole point of this trip is to enjoy the beauty of Zakynthos from it’s beautiful coast! The trip starts from the port of Zakynthos town in the morning. Your transfer to the port will be by coach. Once the boarding to the cruise – boat, is completed, you will start your voyage towards the north of the island. You will pass by the popular beaches of Tsilivi and Alykes and then make your first stop at the Blue Caves. Here the cruise boat will stop for pictures; next stop will be at the very famous Shipwreck Beach!!! Here you will have the chance to disembark at the small beach, where you will have chance to enjoy about an hour at this most beautiful part of the island! We continue our journey towards the north-west port of Porto Vromi.

Zakynthos cruise

As you start to make the way down the west coast of the island, you will pass by the caves of Agalas and Keri before you reach the National Marine Park set in Laganas Bay. You will have a chance to enjoy the natural beauty of the 2 islands set within the park – Marathonisi (turtle island) and Pelouzo as you make your way to the most southerly point of the island to Vassilikos. In the afternoon you will make the way back to the port in town, passing by Argassi, where your bus will be waiting to return you to your accommodation!

PROGRAMME MAY CHANGE DUE TO SEA AND WEATHER CONDITIONS

The cruise around the island is not organized by Nefis Travel Zakynthos but we work together with the companies who organize these more commercialized tours and can purchase the tickets for you.

    I had two tours booked via Nefis, fantastic company, amazing staff, will go above and beyond what their job should entail, nothing to much trouble, mailed the owner asking a general question in regards to what kind of steps there were to boat as I’d fallen the day before and hurt my legs so wasn’t sure if I’d manage, I had the fastest response and complete details of the access to the boat, she also apologised for my fall which was kind as it wasn’t her problem, but next day when coach picked us up for the tour, the guide met me with a beautiful bottle of wine with a ribbon and a get well wish, it was so touching, they also continued the whole day to check I was OK and made sure I had any help I’d needed. Even now I’m home the owner has contacted me to check I’m OK. The tours were absolutely beautiful. Great value for money. We were more than impressed.

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.

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.
