Spend a lazy day soaking up the sun on Kos Island on an 8-hour sailing tour to the islands north of Kos. Swim and snorkel in the sea, discover peaceful coves and quiet beaches, and marvel at the charming little towns of Pothia and Pserimos.
Departure from Kos Harbor at approx 9:30am. About 1 hour later you will arrive at Pserimos, a small island with only 60 inhabitants. You remain in Pserimos for more than an hour, and you have the opportunity to enjoy the sun, the water, and the lovely view.
You depart from Pserimos at 12:30pm and sail towards the small island of Plati. You anchor near the coast of the island and have free time to swim while the crew is preparing lunch. Lunch is served around 2:00pm and consists of souvlaki, Greek salad, tzatziki, and fruit.
After lunch you sail towards Kalymnos to Pothia, the capital city of Kalymnos. Pothia is one of the most colorful towns of the Dodecanese. Every house has its own color, and every color has a different meaning. The island has a very dry mountainous landscape with some valleys.
You will walk down to one of the many sponge factories which exist in Pothia as Kalymnos is well-known for its famous sponge divers. At the factory you will learn about the history and the facts of sponge diving and will be given a demonstration on cutting and bleaching sponges. After visiting the factory there will be plenty of time for a walk through the small streets of Pothia; after this you can also walk through the shops of the main town.
