Do you want to see a blue sea?
Why not take a boat trip from a Greek Island.
Most of the Greek islands I have visited have day boat trips to nearby locations.
Some islands like Zante have trips to special destinations.
- From Zante you can take a day boat trip to see the famous ship wreck beach.
- From Santorini you can visit and walk on the volcanic island which is set in the blue waters of Santorini's caldera. The volcanic island you visit is called Nea Kameni.
- Corfu has frequent boat trips to visit the lovely island of Paxos.
Corfu has boat trips and from some of the resorts, instead of getting the bus to Corfu town you can take a boat trip to visit it.
Visiting Corfu town in the day or the evening gives you the chance to shop and take a leisurely stroll to explore the streets of the town. One reason why the evening trips are popular is that Corfu town is cooler in the evenings. There are also boat trips to sail around Corfu's picturesque coastline.
Kefolonia has day boat trips to visit the famous island of Ithaka (sometimes called Ithaca).
The seas around the Greek islands are beautiful to witness, the colours range from aquamarine through to deepest inky blue. If you are lucky you may even see dolphins swim alongside the boat, as I have on two occasions.

My Travel to Greek Islands.
A Greek island is one of my ideal of the ideal place to visit for a vacation. I have been taking holidays to the islands of Greece for almost ten years.
The first island we visited was Corfu and we liked it so much that we have returned there in future years. The area we visited around Kassiopi was a good choice for us.
Visiting Corfu was our introduction to the pleasure of dining out in the evening in Greece. The boat trips that go from the harbour to Corfu town and other destinations were a wonderful way to spend a day. It was Corfu that made me want to visit other Greek islands, so I have that island to thank for making me want to travel to the other islands to explore them.
Since the trip to Corfu, we have explored Santorini, Crete, Kefalonia, Zante and Kos. We have also taken day trips to Paxos and other small islands including the volcanic island of Nea Kameni when visiting Santorini.
Days out on a Greek holiday - try a boat trip
Go and see, interesting caves and maybe dolphins.
Many of the Greek island have wonderful and fascinating caves that the boat trips will take you to see.
Some of the caves are carved out of the rock by the action of the sea and some take the form of natural arch ways.
The water in some of the caves seems to be almost unbelievably blue and the shades of the colour ranges from turquoise through green to almost indigo.
On a couple of occasions while on boat trips from a Greek island I have been lucky enough to see dolphins swim alongside the boat.

Visit a Greek Island because you want to walk on volcano or on a beach of black sand...
From Santorini Island - you can visit and walk on the volcano Nea Kameni.
- Later in the day from some of the boat trips you can be leave the boat at the harbour side at Ia and if you are brave enough ride a donkey up the donkey steps.
- Or if you are fit and brave enough you can climb up the 'donkey steps'; while 'running the gauntlet' of avoiding the galloping donkeys and also remembering to watch where you place your feet, as the donkeys are not fussy.
Santorini also has many beaches and because it is a volcanic island some of them have black sand.
