There is only so much you can from a ferry on the Aegean sea while coming into Thassos Island. It is even worse if you are coming in via plane. However, that does not mean that you should miss out on those incredible views and places within the island's coast. This is why, as Potos Tours, we offer you a unique package - the boat tour in Thassos island, a tour with lots of positive reviews on Tripadvisor.
This is a unique experience and a unique way to experience Thassos, as can be. With the boat tours, you will enjoy sailing on the blue waters, starting from Limenaria, and enjoying unique places within Thassos for the whole 6-hr-long excursion.
The boat tours fuse relaxation with adventure. You will get to see Notos beach, Salonikios and Aliki beaches, in addition to Arsanas, which is the bay located under the Monastery of Archangel. You will also engage in some fun activities such as snorkeling. You will even get to stop by a couple of beaches for you to soak in that Thassos sun.
In addition to our current stops, we can also make additional ones as per your request. At Potos Tours, we are always committed to giving you the experience that you have always wanted. If that means taking additional stops throughout your boat tours, we will do just that.
You will be in the hands of an experienced skipper and co-skipper. They will be there to offer you a safe excursion, walk you through all the sites that you will go through, and answer any questions that you might have.
If Tripadvisor reviews are anything to go by, you are in for one hell of a treat. Your 6-hr long excursion will start from Limenaria. Our brand new sailing vessel will depart at 10:00, with first stop at Notos Beach or in Greek Agia Anna. Here you will enjoy a dip in the water, along with breakfast against one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world. On your way, you will pass by the remote island of Panagia. This is a marine ecosystem that is protected under the EU’s NATURA 2000 policy. It is an incredible location, rich in flora and fauna, meaning that you will be able to spot some birds and animals such as cormorants and seagulls. You might even be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two in their natural habitat.
As you head over to Archangels’ Monastery, you will sail by Giola, a natural-shaped pool formation housed among the rocks. At Archangel's Monastery, you will get to enjoy its secluded beach and marvel at the sight of turquoise waters as you prepare for lunch.
After lunch, the boat will anchor in Aliki. Here, Phoenicians used to quarry marble and load it on their ships. You will get to swim in crystal clear water next to the open quarries where fresh and seawater mixes. You will then visit the Roman theatre and enjoy the view of the open sea from the Byzantine church ruins.
On the way back we shall stop for an afternoon dessert and swim in Psili Ammos beach or Notos bay, a fully hidden and secluded location located close by.
