Very interesting three-hour trip, you can see eight of the large Athos monasteries. Though the boat is not allowed to get closer than 500 meters towards the coast, you get a really good impression of the buildings. Take some binoculars with you! There's a shop for souvenirs, drinks and snacks on the ship. Smooth booking process via internet, we did it the day before.

Amazing experience. It was a pleasure to spend nice time exploring Monasteries and to see lovely dolphins which really made my holiday special. Also excellent service is provided with guided tour operators. It's definitely worth to do this activity again 😊

It was a really exotic trip with Calipso boat ! As well as economic ! For the 40 euro per person ticket they offered us trip from the morning till late afternoon ! Lunch was included in the price (greek souvlaki-salad and other stuff) We saw some of the Monastiri in mount athos and a guide was telling all the time what we see! The we also had a dance time and dives in the water ! We had great time well done guys and thank you for this trip!! See you again!!
