This is what you really expect from Agistri: authenticity, freedom, and tranquillity.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Aegina, Aegina, Saronic Gulf Islands, Attica

Aegina is the largest island in the Saronic Gulf, just 17 miles away from Athens. Aegina’s ancient history takes place back in 500 B.C.

Explore the ancient Greek temple of Apollo known as Kolona, meaning column, because just one column remains today from this ancient construction. It dates from the 6th century BC, even earlier than the Parthenon in Athens.

Aegina is also famous worldwide for the high quality of its local pistachio nut. Among the highlights of the island, are the stunning beaches of Marathon, Agia Marina, and Perdika which is known for its seafood taverns.

Duration: 2 hours

  • Wonderful day exploring the islands and swimming in the sea! Had a great international group & fun to visit with others from different parts of the world! Food was really good for lunch and crew very accommodating! Seas started out rough and staff gave my husband some meds for sea sickness! Please note towels are NOT provided so need to bring your own
  • It was a fun day on the cruise, especially, the diving from the platform! I will definitely recommend it to my friends!
  • This was a lovely day out. The boat was changed at the last minute to a motor boat, which we were a little disappointed about, but in the end it worked out better, as we got back to port earlier than expected, which was good for us as we had to leave Piraeus that evening. The boat actually was very comfortable, the food tasty and the islands were well worth visiting.
  • The staff were super friendly… the turquoise waters so inviting and the food was delicious… But it would have been helpful if I could’ve found their phone number on WhatsApp, in order to get more detailed instructions on exactly where I was supposed to find the boat to get on…
  • My friend and I had a great time! The staff is super nice, informative & helpful. Beautiful islands!
  • Stacy was a fantastic hostess, knowledgeable and friendly. One of the sailors (didn’t get his name) was also super friendly and engaging. The boat was lovely, the 3 stops were wonderful, and the lunch was very tasty - simple salads, delicious chicken, pasta with tomato sauce and great tzatziki. The only thing missing would have been bubbly with the wine. Absolutely would recommend this tour.
  • Such a lovely experience. A relaxing and very enjoyable day. Everyone was very friendly and we met such fun fellow travellers
  • Excellent day trip! The islands were awesome, crew was friendly, food was fantastic. Great day! Highly recommend!!
  • Great day overall. Well looked after by the crew. 3 stops (one of the islands is a swim stop only in deep water for lunch). Time on each island to explore.
  • Everything was great with the cruise including the amazing lunch and drinks provided. The hostess was very nice and informed us of alot thinfs. The only thing I didn't like was the title of the tickets said it was a cruise to 3 islands, but we only went to 2 so that was disappointing.
  • Fantastic boat tour enjoyed last week, it was very hot so the sea breeze was fabulous, spent such a lovely day with a wonderful group of people. All the staff were so welcoming, always ensuring everyone was having a great time; especially Andi, our host for the day. Food was wonderful with plenty for everyone, along with beer, wine, soft drinks and water always available. Staff were so attentive, always there to help when moving around the boat - takes a while to get your sea legs! Stops on idyllic islands and so much fun at the swimming spot! A wonderful experience I would encourage others wholeheartedly to book on!
  • Fantastic boat trip. Crew were so lovely and helpful, especially our guide Stacey. What a gem! Good and drinks on board were lovely and plenty of both. Islands were gorgeous and enough time to explore both. Plenty of room on board to stretch out and relax. Would highly recommend.
  • I'm angry and disappointed. The forecast had already predicted bad weather since the morning and the excursion was not cancelled. 2/3 hours of sailing to get to the first AGISTRI island (where you can stay for 1h and 20') and the wind increased. There are only restaurants and souvenir shops and a lovely little church. Upon boarding we were told that after lunch we would return to port for our safety. Lunch which included 2 types of pasta, vegetables, bread, chicken, potatoes. fruit? A piece of watermelon. One person smoked and threw the cigarette into the sea. People who, despite the turbulent return and a vomiting child, continued to drink and rut, placing empty cans everywhere and these rolling up and down. Return with rain, wind and nausea. The (kind) staff continued to give drinks without providing ANY rules in this regard. Loud and annoying music for those who were unwell. 15 minutes to wait for the bus to return. Sofas with questionable cleanliness. 75% MONEY BACK.
  • Loved the boat ride even though rough going out! Crew was great and very helpful! My sons in their 30-40s loves jumping off the boat to swim! We loved swimming at the first island also and the fresh pistachios at the last island! Met some very nice folks from all over the world😀. Would definitely do again!
  • Great cruise. After a busy day of sightseeing the day before, we were looking for a relaxing day and this was perfect. Andi was really helpful and a great host and tour guide. The islands were brilliant. There was a pistachio festival on Aegina when we went and plenty of opportunity to look round the stall and sample the amazing gellato. Food on the boat was great as well. All round really lovely day!
  • Brilliant trip on the boat to the islands with great food and swimming. Very well looked after from the moment we boarded the boat, plenty of staff and they made great effort to ensure everything was good. Enjoyed coffee and cake when boarding and as we were one of the first we were able to get seats on the higher deck which I highly recommend. Highlight was lunch (great quality and plenty of it) and jumping off boat for a swim. Highly recommend.
  • Great day on the water. Jumping off the ship to swim was great. Crew and host were awesome. Lunch was exceptional.
  • The boat's crew was terrific and they prepared a varied and delicious meal. The catamaran was roomy for the 10 of us. It was easy getting on and off the boat. The swimming locations were good and the water comfortable. Seeing the sunset was wonderful.
  • Had the best day! Thanks to the crew they were all so nice and friendly. The lady who told us information was great and kept us upto date throughout the trip. The food was amazing and the drinks flowing all day. Good mix of people to have a chat on board. The islands are great very picturesque. The collect and drop off transfers were great too making it a a door to door trip. Would definitely do it again and will definitely tell friends and family to do this!
  • Fun alternative when staying in Athens. Aegina and Agistri are worth a visit. We took a different boat (not the wooden boat shown) which was old and tired. The diesel smell was nauseating. The islands were cute and walkable. The beaches were rocky, so bring water shoes. The swim off the boat was fun and easy. Lunch was good, beer was cold, wine was warm. Our guide was adorable and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this trip if you have at least 3 or more days to spend in Athens.
  • I go Athens cruise to see 3 islands. Boat very old, make big noise and black smoke. My head hurt because I breathe this smoke. Lunch? Not so good. I think better food in Greece. Not happy with trip. Maybe they fix boat and food better next time.
  • The staff was exceptionally welcoming and helpful--from the taxi driver to the tour guide and the sailors. Facilities were extremely comfortable from spacious clean bathroom to lounge chairs in the shade--a light breakfast and unlimited drinks all day are also included FYI--and they were very fair and accommodating when the wind changed our itinerary slightly. This is the best possible way I could have spent my second day in Athens with only a two-day itinerary: BEAUTIFUL SUNSHINE, WATERS, AND ISLAND VISTAS! Group size was very manageable (I'm not usually into group tours) and fellow boaters were diverse in age and origin, making it easy to find fellow travelers to chat with.
  • Me, my son and mom went on this cruise and had the very best time! We would def8nitely go again. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.
  • This was an amazing experience! The weather took a bad turn and we had to head back to the main port after the first island but the crew was super accommodating, interactive, fun and took very good care of us. The crew went above and beyond for us and I'm grateful. I highly recommend!
