CRUISE #9: Combo Cruise. Departure from Ouranoupolis.

With this awesome cruise you have the perfect opportunity to combine a lifetime sightseeing journey to the Mount Athos monasteries and an unforgettable swimming experience on the picturesque island of Ammouliani.

Our boat starts from the port of Ormos Panagias in Sithonia at 10:00. We sail northeast toward the Mount Athos peninsula and after about 1h and 30 min we are in front of the imposing Byzantine monasteries.

At 11:30 we start our round cruise to the Mount Athos monasteries. For more information about these seductive, primal itinerary in the monastic centre you can find by referring to our Cruises to Mount Athos page.

As we cross the southwest side of peninsula you are able to see some of the most impressive monasteries of Mount Athos and their beautiful surrounding landscapes. During our trip there is a multilingual tour guide for your reference. Although we're sailing in a distance from which you can clearly see the monasteries, however you can ask for a pair of binoculars from a crew member of our boat if you want to take a closer look at the awesome monasteries.


Make sure that you have your camera on hand and prepare to enjoy a breathtaking amazing experience once you lived you will always remember

Our spiritual sightseeing cruise lasts for about 1 hour and 15 minutes and after that we reach on the island of Ammouliani and the famous beach Alykes. We drop our anchor here where you have enough time to swim in the crystal clear waters or enjoy the sun in parasols and sun loungers, or just visit the beach bar and the traditional tavern of this well organized wonderful beach.

While you enjoy the sun and sea our crew members are preparing your lunch. A delicious barbeque accompanied with Greek salad, bread, tzatziki and a glass of wine are waiting you onboard after your swimming adventure. And If you are a vegan, you don’t need to worry. Contact with us at least one day before the cruise and we will prepare something especially for you!

After you finish with your lunch we pull anchors and sail back to Ormos Panagias where we end this memorable combined cruise at 17:00.


It may happens sometimes to sail first to the beach of Alykes and after our swimming and barbeque to continue with the cruise to Mount Athos. However the program of our cruise remain the same in both occasions.
