What to Do in the KY?

There is so much to do in the Aegean Islands while on charters, all in the name of fun!  Think of the choices you have each morning as you wake up and enjoy your morning coffee from the flybridge of your luxurious motor yacht thinking about the activities for the day.  Will you spend the day on the water, snorkeling or diving? Perhaps it’s a good day to find a quiet cove and explore some of the deserted island beaches. Will you be docked at a marina enjoying a day at the spa or lounging poolside sipping on a popular exotic cocktail? And there are the decisions as to where to dine that day…popular restaurant or beach bar, or maybe both?  It’s all good.  So many choices!

One thing is for certain; it helps to plan ahead of time! Check out our activity guide when doing your charter planning. There are some valuable resources available here to help you provision and plan for all of the things you might want to experience during your charter.  Our staff will always be available to assist you with your itinerary.

NEW TO SNORKLE?

If anyone is your party is new to snorkeling we have some tips to share that might make the experience even more enjoyable.  After all, the idea is to see as much as you can, right?  Sometimes it takes a little more than jumping in the water and making sure your mask doesn’t leak.  One key to good snorkeling is to recognize that marine life feels threatened when you approach.  As a result, they will often stay still or perhaps even change color very quickly in order to blend into their surroundings. People mistakenly assume they are looking for fish and animals that are moving.  That is not often the case.  Especially the closer you come. Make sure to notice that plant and those rocks that are still.  There’s a very good chance that some of them are actually the fish you were hoping to see.

Go slow.  Much of the success of snorkeling is noticing the little things.  Marine life loves to hide.  There’s a reason why some of the best snorkel and dive sites are in locations where there are large numbers of rock formations and coral.  They are great hiding places during the day for sea life. Take the time to look in the hiding places like under boulders and in small crevices.  Seagrass is another favorite hiding place.  Take your time and you’d be surprised how much more you will find.

One more thing.  Notice what’s going on above the surface.  If you see pelicans diving for fish, chances are you have picked a good time of day and a great location to find some action going on below the surface.  Oh, and don’t forget your underwater camera.
