Hydra is a one-of-a-kind destination, a place where tradition is respected and preserved. One of the Mediterranean’s most cosmopolitan islands, Hydra attracts a large number of visitors from Greece every year, due to its proximity to Athens, as well as from abroad.
The island is embraced by high mountains, rocky outcrops and pine forests reflecting their colours into the crystal clear waters. Idyllic and breathtaking views of Hydra’s nature make your visit an out-of-time experience underlined by the absence of vehicles and its slow rhythm.
ABOUT FISHING TRIPS & BOAT TOURS
A boat tour is an alternative and ideal way to explore and discover Hydra’s seascape and most secluded areas. Enjoy a private tour just for you and your friends and family on board the fishing boat “Ιωαννίκιος”, a traditional 9,50 meter Greek wooden boat.
A relaxing day on board starts by leaving the harbor from our meeting point and sailing towards fun! A full day trip is recommended starting at 10.00 and returning at 20.30 approximately, just in time to contemplate the sunset. However, you can always adapt your trip to your own personal preferences and available time.
