Most boat trips on Milos
are organized from Adamas
port but there are some offered in Pollonia
The trips are usually with medium sized yachts, which pack up to a dozen passengers and have crew of two. There are also some bigger boats which transport more people. The owners of the boats are flexible and also offer private trips but usually at a much higher rate compared to the group sails.
Boat trips from Adamas usually begin in the morning and end in the late afternoon. The most popular route includes:
- Leaving from Adamas port between 9 and 10 in the morning.
- Sailing near the coast and passing near Klima
, the tombs carved into the rocks, Areti
and admiring the views of Plaka
- Just after The Rabbit and The Wolf rocks the boat turns to the opposite side of the island towards Cape Vani
with The Bacon Rocks and the old loading piers.
- The course follows the island coast and goes toward Sykia Cave
which has its roof collapsed. The cave entrance allows only small motorboat to get in and all the yachts draw such boats with them during the trip.
- At this point it is around midday and a stop is made at Kleftiko
for lunch and relaxation. The time is perfect for swimming, relaxing and exploring the blue caves. The blue caves of Kleftiko can be seen with the same motor boat used for entering the Sykia Cave.
- In the afternoon the yachts go back and if there is time some of them stop at Agios Dimitrios
beach for one last swim and snack.
The above schedule and points of interest are dependent on the weather and the wind. If the weather is bad or the wind is strong, boats will not sail or may skip some locations.
Boat reservations are usually done in the evening before the trip. People walk around the harbor, explore the boats, talk to the crew or check with the agencies on the promenade.
