Boat tours

There are several businesses providing a variety of tours around Kalamaki that take you out onto the open sea. A popular trip is the shipwreck and the turtle tour, which sets sail for a voyage across the turquoise waters to find swimming turtles and a stop off at Zante’s famous Shipwreck Beach.

The relaxing atmosphere and of course stunning locations is what makes this excursion so popular. Sail along with the friendly and knowledgeable staff to spot loggerhead turtles in their natural habitat. Then move onto the isolated cove of Shipwreck Beach to swim in the cool turquoise waters and see the iconic, rusty wreckage that washed up onto the remote island long ago. On your way back to port you get a chance to jump off the boat, into the shaded waters that surround the magnificent caves that were naturally carved into the cliff sides. This sea adventure is an ideal way to explore the natural beauty of the phenomenon that is shaped into the island’s history.
