Depart from Kardamena Harbour at 10.30 am, a brief safety chat and we head north for Vathi, Kalymnos, dropping anchor at the islands of Pserimos or Plati for a leisurely lunchtime stop, with time to swim, fish or just relax in a beautiful bay. Arriving in Vathi, a picturesque fjord like inlet, where we anchor overnight in the Port of Rina and enjoy a meal at one of surrounding tavernas. Back onboard for a final night cap before retiring for the night.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the shade on the aft deck. We then head north at a gentle pace to the next island Leros for our overnight anchorage in Pandeli. This is a pretty horseshoe shaped bay with the traditional blue and white houses adorning the hill side. Here you have plenty of time to relax or swim from the boat, or go ashore to explore, if you are feeling a little energetic you can hike to Pandeli Castle, where the views are spectacular. Again your evening meal will be spent ashore at one of the many tavernas that are scattered along the bay. It is an amazing experience to sit and watch the moon and the stars, with “Zeus Too” in the foreground, with the waves almost lapping at your feet. Back onboard for the night, ready for another day and another bay.
Breakfast and maybe an early morning swim before we leave in a southerly direction to Pirate Bay, on the west side of Kalymnos. A fantastic day spent with the Pirates! We then leave for our final overnight destination, Pothia, which is the capital and main port of the famous sponge island Kalymnos. It is a very picturesque town with the brightly coloured houses built amphitheatrically around the port. There are many shops, cafes and tavernas to choose from or if you wish, we can have a BBQ evening meal aboard.
A leisurely breakfast in the shade on the aft deck, al fresco. We then move onto your next lunch time stop and swim, this will be either at the tranquil island of Kastri, which is the Mama Mia island of Kos or the natural Therma Hot Spring, where a short swim from the boat and you can take a dip in the therapeutic mineral waters. We return to Kardamena at approximately 5.00pm.
