Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Sail out of the bay of Adamantas passing the Christian catacombs and the colorful villages of Skinopi, Areti, and Fourkovouni. See the village of Klima, the capital of ancient Milos and the site where the statue of Venus de Milo was discovered, and admire the ‘Arkoudes’, the impressive 20ft bear-shaped rocks at the entrance of the bay.  Sail to Cape Vani, an impressive 30-meter tall rock that was home to one of the first mineral mines in Milos. See the mines' quay before jumping in for the first swim of the day in the crystal-clear waters of Kalogries. Back on board, enjoy some fresh fruit, cakes, and refreshments as we set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos. Anchor in the clear green waters and take a small dinghy under a rock passage and into the cave. Inside, explore a salt lake with a small beach, illuminated by a natural skylight in the rock above.  Finally, we reach Kleftiko, the old pirates' lair. This complex of white and grey arches and caves is the perfect place to snorkel. Find the perfect photo-opt with the underwater cameras and marvel at the turquoise waters. After the swim, enjoy refreshments, ice-cold beers, and traditional Greek ouzo followed by a delicious meal. After lunch, take the dinghy and explore the unique beauty of Kleftiko caves.  On the return journey, relax on the deck or join us in the cockpit to help steer the boat. Take one final swim in the bay of Agios Dimitrios, a tranquil spot inaccessible by car which offers an amazing view of Plaka and Tripiti and all the colorful villages across the bay.

Amazing tour, Pol and his team were lots of fun, the food was great, swims in the most incredible places. If you choose only one tour on your entire trip it should be this one. Can't wait to get the pics Pol took with his underwater camera! We took our 14 month old and he had a fantastic time as well!

My family and I took a wonderful sailing trip with Pol and his crew, and I am sure we will never forget it! My 6-year old child felt happy, safe and welcome the entire time. Besides seeing amazing landscapes, exploring caves and swimming in crystal-clear waters, the crew went above and beyond to provide the best experience possible. Lunch was delicious and we met wonderful people on our trip. Thank you for a fantastic trip, Polcos team!

Absolument extra ! Formidable expérience avec Pol à la barre assisté de Thomas : super équipage à l’écoute, guides avertis amoureux de leur île, pleins d’humour et même bons cuisiniers ! Nombre de passagers raisonnable. Les stops plus beaux les uns que les autres, les balades en annexe dans les grottes géniales ! Un grand merci pour ces inoubliables moments immortalisés par 180 photos faites avec leur Gopro et reçues dès le lendemain. À faire sans hésiter !!!
