Small and secluded yet spectacular all the same, Patmos is the “Jerusalem of the Aegean”. Afternoon sailing to Lipsi island, a time capsule of authenticity in the Dodecanese. Lunch al fresco and swim stop in one of the glittering necklaces of 24 islets await, protected by the Natura 2000 network making an ideal refugee for the shy Mediterranean Monk seal.

Home of the famous sponge divers, this island in the Dodecanese is ideal for modern day adventurers with many hiking routes to be explored. Join the optional tour to engage with the locals' harvesting sponges and producing about 30,000 sponges annually.

On top of the island there is an abandoned World War II Italian outpost. Midday sailing to Amorgos, the island of Luc Besson's "Big Blue".
