Levante Speedboat Trips

MORNING TRIP: The SHIPWRECK and the BLUE CAVES 8:30pm to 1:00pm (approx.)

The four and a half hours of fun and excitement start at 8:30am when Captain Spiros takes the Levante Speedboat out of the local harbour at Tsilivi and opens up the engines. Just forty minutes later yours is the FIRST PARTY OF THE DAY TO LAND ON THE SHIPWRECK BEACH where you can step down off the front of the boat or, if you are brave enough to take on the crystal clear but cold water of the bay, you can dive straight off the back. Captain Spiros will tell you the complete history of the Shipwreck and then conduct fun and games on the beach.

Then its all aboard for the next stop the Blue Caves, visiting on the way many interesting features of this rugged coast. And this is where the Captain demonstrates his skill with his powerful boat, speeding through the rock gaps and arches, thrilling all on board. Arriving at the Caves, Captain Spiros now shows how delicately he handles the Levante at low speed, TAKING THE BOAT INTO EACH OF THE CAVES in turn. This unique feature of the Levante Speedboat trip allows both swimmers and non-swimmers alike to experience the glorious colours in the Caves while the Captain points out the many interesting rock formations and corals to be seen above and below the waterline. Once again Captain Spiros weighs anchor, this time heading for the beautiful little fishing port called St Nicholas. Here everybody disembarks for a swim off the beach or perhaps some refreshment at the delightful, family-run fish taverna nestling right on the waters edge. Finally, with everyone completely relaxed, the Captain whisks you back to Tsilivi, arriving there at about one oclock after a fun-packed, exciting and memorable morning.

AFTERNOON TRIP: TURTLE SPOTTING and the KERI CAVES 1:00pm to 6:30pm (approx.)

At 1:30pm Captain Spiros guides the Levante Speedboat out of the local harbour at Tsilivi. At 1:31pm he lets the twin engines roar and the fun begins. Thirty five minutes later you arrive in the National Marine Park Area where only smaller boats like the Levante Speedboat are allowed. He heads straight for the part where he knows from many years of experience that the turtles will be gathering before going ashore to lay their eggs . HE ALWAYS FINDS TURTLES. You spend time with the turtles to observe their behaviour and admire their timeless serenity. When everybody on board have all the photos they want, the Captain then sets out at speed for Marathonisi (Turtle Island so called for its shape as seen from the shore of Zakynthos). This unspoilt, idyllic island is off-limits to the bigger ships because it is a Nature Reserve. Dismounting from the front of the boat straight onto the shelving, shingley beach, you can luxuriate in the crystal clear waters which are warmed by the bright afternoon sun perfect for swimmers and non-swimmers alike. After a refreshing dip, you head off towards the Keri Caves, passing through the many arches and gaps in the rocks at high speed, Captain Spiros once again showing his prowess at the wheel of his powerful boat.

On reaching the Caves, he delicately manouveurs the LEVANTE SPEEDBOAT INTO ALL THE ACCESSIBLE CAVES where his wide ranging knowledge gives you a true guided tour of the wonders to be seen both above and below the sea surface. (It is highly recommended that you take your snorkelling equipment with you.) Once the tour is over it is time for another high speed run, this time to Banana Beach where the soft sand, warm waters and a great taverna invite the traveller to stop and relax after all the excitement of the previous four hours. When everyone has been restored Captain Spiros sets off back to Tsilivi, pausing briefly in Zakynthos Town harbour to photograph the waterfront panorama then finally docking at Levante Speedboats home port in Tsilivi at around 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening, at the end of another fun-packed, exciting and memorable trip.
