Overview
Visiting the islands of Hydra, Poros, and Egina from Athens in a day is challenging, especially without chartering a boat or taking multiple ferries. This cruise makes it possible aboard one comfortable ship, and includes time to stroll and shop on each island. Relax with pre-arranged tickets and timings, enjoy an onboard lunch, take island tours (at your own expense), and upgrade for VIP boarding and lounge access.
What to Expect
After pickup in central Athens or your Athens hotel by air-conditioned coach, head for Piraeus port.

Relax as you cruise to Poros, taking time on route to either sign up for tours on Egina (Aegina) or Hydra (both own expense) or decide to explore independently. If you’ve upgraded, enjoy extra-comfortable transportation, private check-in, VIP lounges in port and onboard, a welcome drink, buffet lunch in a VIP dining room, Wi-Fi, and access to the ship’s sun deck.

At Poros, get free time to enjoy the tavernas, shops, and other attractions. After lunch on board, cruise to Hydra and Egina. Dock at each island to stroll and shop independently, or take the optional Hydra walking tour or Egina bus tour (both at your own expense) to the classical Temple of Aphaia.

Finally, enjoy an onboard folklore show as you cruise back to Athens for drop-off at your departure point.

The first trip to take when you get to Greece!

After a long flight to Greece, there is nothing like sitting back and enjoying a day cruise to some of the greatest little islands in Greece. Hydra, Poros and Egina are just charming. The lunch on the ship is great and the hospitality is awesome....More

Anchor Failed

Pretty bad with getting stuck by bad anchor. Very long day. Do not do this cruise. Pretty terrible. Don’t waste your time or money.

Meh.

This is really a touch and go cruise. Yeah, you can say you visited three Greek island but you spend 45 min on one island, ~1 hour on the other, and about ~2 hours on the last island. They don’t have enough room to serve...More

Great day out

The boat trip was incredible. All three island were picturesque but our favourite island was Hydra. The port was idyllic and the donkey were perfectly at home by the port.
