We set off from various resorts and meet in the fishing village and port of Agia Efimia where we start our day on board the Romantika 2. Captain Makis and the crew take us up the nautical channel between Kefalonia and Ithaka and we advise that you keep an eye out for turtles and the dolphins that populate the Ionian seas.
A short stop in Fiscardo is only for photographs and to pick up a few more passengers and then we head out into the open waters between Kefalonia and Lefkas . En-route we view both Arkoudi and Astakos islands and then reach a sea cave called Papanikolis . Here we actually take the boat into a fabulous cave that is full of rock formations whilst it is steeped in fantastic folklore.
After the cave it’s a short cruise on to our forty minute swim stop from the boat on the shores off the island of Meganisi . Then, we cruise around the island of Skorpios and see how the present owner of this magical little island lives a life of unbelievable luxury in a paradise of Onassis’ making.
We then cruise down the south eastern coast of Lefkas and into a lovely sheltered port called Syvota . It attracts the yachting crowd and has a good choice of shops, tavernas and coffee bars in which you can while away the hour and a half allowed at this stop. There are also two swimming areas within the bay and you may even be lucky enough to have a few local ducks join you!
Thereafter, you’ll return to the Romantika 2 at the time given by your reps and the crew and make the exciting journey back down to first Fiscardo and ultimately, back into the port of Agia Efimia . This is a splendid day out on the Ionian Seas and we think that it will be a memory for you to treasure for many years to come. It truly is a day of supreme colours, impressions, laid-back cruising in the very capable hand of Captain Makis and of beauty that is almost impossible to describe.
