Sounio Cruise begins from marina Zeas at 12:00 and returns at 21:30.
It’s a unique, full day yachting experience by the Athenian Riviera and the greater coast of Attica all the way to cape Sounio.
With the blessing of Poseidon, the God of the sea in Greek mythology, we cruise in style, swim & snorkel in turquoise waters, we visit the glorious temple and we are thrilled watching the sunset show in front of our eyes.
After this full day at the sea with a dive into the ancient times and the sun warming our hearts, we come back different!

We are now heading towards cape Sounio and we disembark right below the ancient temple of Poseidon. From here, there is a short path of 10 minutes or less that takes us up to the entrance of the glorious site and the greater area.
After our visit in the land has finished, we have some time for freshen up and we take the same path down to the yacht. It is now time for our Greek meal on board. This is especially prepared for us and includes a variety of traditional mezedes and hand-made delicacies.
The sunset is taking place right in front of our eyes and we all grab our cameras to capture the 1000 colours of the sky. A glass of Greek wine or liqueur is served and we say “Yamas” (cheers in Greek) to everyone. Soft music is on. It’s time for hugs, smiles, and funny dancing!
