Shipwreck and Blue Caves

VIP LAND AND SEA TOUR

Our journey begins early in the morning with a scenic guided bus tour to the North-East of Zakynthos. At the authentic harbor of Mikro Nisi, we board on a 25 passengers seated glass bottom speedboat and sail to the crystal blue bay of the famous Shipwreck, while dolphins might bid you a pleasant day. We enjoy a delightful hour and leave before the influx of other tourists on larger tour boats even begins. With our right size speedboat we can go inside and explore the Blue Caves, which are situated on the east-side of Zante, here you are able to enjoy a swim and take pictures. If you choose to swim you’ll become as blue as a Zakynthian Smurf by swimming in the magical Blue caves! You can enjoy lunch in a charming seaside village with a panoramic view on our neighboring island Kefalonia (optional). Our last stop is at Xingia Spa Beach, a beautiful small sandy bay. The turquoise blue sea here contains traces of sulphur and collagen. The sulphur 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, combined with a Nefis Travel Zakynthos sand scrub, will revitalize your energy and polish your skin. Our unique tour is the ultimate way to escape the crowds and enjoy some of the most beautiful places that Zakynthos has to offer.

Zakynthos Zante

How do I receive a 10% discount?

If you book over the internet, you will automatically get a 10% discount.

Do you have early bird discounts or group discounts?

With our 10% internet discount we reward all the early birds, but we also offer tailor-made extra discounts for groups and multiple bookings.

Is lunch included on the tours? May I bring a lunch box?

Lunch is NOT INCLUDED on any of the Nefis Travel tours, but our dear Nefis Travel guests are more than welcome to bring their lunch boxes on the tours. The tavernas that we work with are informed about this extra service at Nefis Travel and you are even allowed to bring your lunch boxes into the tavernas used on the tours.

How can i contact Nefis Travel?

You can contact us by phone (+30 2695048004, +30 6984534687, +30 6975765741) or email (info@nefis-travel.com) or through our website's contact form. You can also reach us by sending a message via Facebook or Whats App.

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.
