What to expect

Fancy cruising Zante's waters in search of its most famous residents – loggerhead sea turtles. These graceful creatures have been nesting on the island's beaches for thousands of years but, sadly, they're now a rare and endangered species. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

You'll start by sailing towards Marathonisi, a pine-clad islet nicknamed ‘Turtle Island'. The reason's simple – one of its beaches is a favourite nesting site. Keep a look out for loggerheads and for dolphins, too. You'll drop anchor near Marathonisi, for a spot of swimming and snorkelling.

Next, cruise to the Keri peninsula, passing its sea caves and lighthouse, for another swim stop. Finally, as you sail back across Laganas Bay to Zante town, you may even spot some more turtles. What's more, conservation group Archellon will be on board to tell you about their work.
