Excursions to Zakynthos (also called Zante) Marine Park with a 140-passenger boat can only be booked by large groups and agencies. For couples, families and group of friends, we recommend our Catamaran Excursion. The National Marine Park of Zakynthos (in Greek: Εθνικό Θαλάσσιο Πάρκο Ζακύνθου), established on 22 December 1999, is the first marine national park in Greece. It covers an area of 135 Km2 and is home to Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtles. In the marine park, you will have the opportunity to swim in crystal clear waters and to observe and take close-up photos of Loggerhead turtles peacefully swimming in the sea. Our excursions are designed to let you explore the beauty of the marine park and observe Loggerhead turtles as they swim in their natural environment, all in compliance with WWF regulations. Furthermore, you will have the chance to swim in two of the most beautiful and famous park sites: Marathonisi Island, where Loggerhead (Caretta-Caretta) turtles lay their eggs, and Keri Caves.
This excursion gives you the opportunity to observe Loggerhead turtles up close while also enjoying breathtaking views of the southern coast of the island. It is perfect for snorkelling and for those who love the adventure of swimming inside the caves. The cost is € 20 per person.
If you wish to explore Zakynthos Marine Park on your own, you can rent a standard boat that doesn’t require a boating licence or a boat with skipper.
