Our cruise on board the traditional wooden caique “Gorgona” will take you to the deserted islands of one of Europe’s biggest Marine Parks.
Join our exclusive cruise on board our traditional caique and explore one of Europe’s biggest Marine Parks. Established in May 1992 the National Marine Park of Alonnisos N.Sporades is the home of many rare species, the Monk Seal, the Mediterranean Dolphins and the Falcon Eleonora being some of them.
We depart from Skopelos Port early in the morning heading to the deserted monastery island of Kyra Panagia, enjoying a quick swim stop at the beach of Aghios Dimitrios and a passing by the Blue Cave where the Eleonoras Falcons criss-crossing the sky. Through the zone A of the Marine Park, we’ll be reaching to the Monastery of Kyra Panagia dating back to year 993 and dedicated to the birth of Virgin Mary.
The visit to the Monastery involves a climb up the steep donkey track on the hillside where the views and the sacred atmosphere compensate generously even the most difficult visitor. After that, we return to the boat for a refreshing swim or snoekling, a delicious vegetarian lunch and a glass of cold wine.
On our return trip, we stop at the ancient beach of Kokkinokastro, the site of ancient IKOS, on Alonnisos side with the blue waters and the surrounding red earth blend in a wild contrast. Our final stop is at Patitiri, the port and capital of Alonnisos, and an optional visit to the Old Chora.
