Having been picked up from your resorts, your tour will begin at the port of Agios Sostis, where your boat will await you. Here you will embark on your 3 hour trip taking in the beautiful scenery.  Sailing south to the stunning Keri Caves for your first stop where you will have some fantastic photo opportunities (Approximately 20 minutes). 

From here you will cruise to the small island of Marathonissi, also known as Turtle Island.  The island is situated in Laganas Bay. There are seven discrete nesting beaches for the Loggerhead Turtle, one of them being Marathonissi. The nature on this tiny island is purely exotic as there are no inhabitants.  Here you will have approximately 30 minutes swimming stop, in the clear blue waters.
