You will have 1 hour to explore, you can walk the peaceful streets of Vathi, try local sweets and the famous homemade orange juices, and watch the history of the island unfold before your eyes.
Kalymnos, ofcourse, is world wide famous for its sponge industry. So while in Vathi you will have the chance to visit the sponge factory where you can learn how the sponges are collected by local divers, and see how they are processed in order to get their final form.
When you return to the boat, a buffet lunch will be ready for you. The normal menu is pork or chicken Souvlaki, salad, tzatziki and bread. There is also a vegetarian option with beans and dolmades instead of meat.
Located between Kos and Kalymnos this island is our next destination. The boat anchors close to the land and once the engines stop, you can jump in and swim around the boat. The sea is unbelievably clear, meaning you can easily notice the sandy bottom through the blue and turquoise waters. Meanwhile, on the boat, happy hour will start and the barman will serve refreshing cocktails at low prices.
The last stop is Pserimos, which is inhabited by only 15 families during the winter and gets busier in the summer. You will have 1 hour here to explore. Swim on the shallow, sandy beach, discover hidden paths or just relax at a local cafeteria or taverna. Finally, the boat will return to Kos at about 5:15 PM and you will leave with unforgettable memories of your beautiful cruise.
The Aegean is sea of wonders! Due to its mild temperature and its unique waters it is the residence of a lot of kind of sea creatures.
That is why after lunch, the boat pays a visit to the fish farms nearby. The smell of the fish attracts wild dolphins and most of the time you will see them jumping out of the water!
