Searching for loggerhead turtles and dolphins in their natural habitat is the aim of the game of this half-day cruise. You'll set sail for Marathonisi Island, anchoring up for swimming along the way and learning about turtle conservation from the on-board team. 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.
Kids will love this one, too – the boat will have kids' corner complete with games and activities aimed at teaching them more about turtle conservation. You'll cast off from Zante port towards Marathonisi Island – a pine-clad islet nicknamed ‘Turtle Island' as its beaches are a favourite nesting site.
You'll swing by the ‘Oasis' sea cave for some swimming before heading closer to the island where you'll drop anchor once more for an extra dose of snorkelling. What's more, conservation group Archellon will be on board to tell you about their work before sailing back to Agios Sostis. Remember to keep an eye on the water for signs of loggerhead turtles and dolphins.
