CATAMARAN CRUISE & SWIMMING IN THE ATHENIAN RIVIERA
One of the best experiences we’ve had in Athens that gives you an effortless and luxurious way to experience the beautiful Athenian coastline aboard a spacious catamaran. Lunch is prepared on board whilst you swim in the beautiful tranquil waters off the Athenian shoreline. With a young and energetic team led by husband and wife duo Mike and Stella, this excursion translates to the highest level of service and consideration for your enjoyment and relaxation. Semi-private sized groups means there are no more than ten people on board. The luxurious catamaran experience is suitable for couples, solo travellers, groups and families and is one you’re unlikely going to forget. With only two boutique trips scheduled each day, book now and don’t miss out. Runs daily from April to October.
