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.

Cast out to sea and you'll pass by the golden beaches of Vassilikos before 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.

Next, cruise to the Keri peninsula, passing its sea caves and lighthouse, and dropping anchor for a swim stop. Come ashore and there's free time to explore the small village of Keri. You can shop for souvenirs, relax in a restaurant or hit the beach. On the return cruise there's a chance to swim in a hidden bay and you may even spot some more turtles. What's more, conservation group Archellon will be on board to tell you about their work.
