The three islands tour consist a visit to Kalymnos, Plati and Pserimos. Kalymnos is located between Kos and Leros in the south-eastern Aegean Sea and belongs to the Dodecanese Islands prefecture. The area is 111.14 square kilometres and is the fourth largest island in the Dodecanese prefecture. The name of the island used to be Kalynda then changed to Kalymna and finally Kalymnos. Also known as the island of the Sponge Divers due to its residents’ sponge fishery avocation. Leros, Patmos, Pserimos, Astipalea, Telendos, Agathonisi and Lipsi also belong to Kalymnos. The capital of Kalymnos is Pothia where most of the inhabitants live. Chora is the second largest residential area and the former capital of the island. Other areas of Kalymnos include Argos, Myrties, Masouri, Skala, Vathis, Panormos, Emporios, Vlihada, Lafasi, Vothini and the islet Telendos. The inhabitants’ occupation with sponge fishing led to economic growth and the island flourished, the effects of which are evident in the numerous neoclassic stately homes built in every corner of the island. Even today there are still sponge divers who go underwater to collect the sponges in their own traditional method. Kalymnos is mainly mountainous. Pserimos is a 15 km2 large hilly island in the Dodecanese group and lies between the islands of Kos and Kalymnos. The island has beautiful beaches and is therefore a popular destination for day trippers coming from Kost trying to escape the crowds, but partly for that reason it can also get quite busy on this small island during the high season.About a hundred people live on Pserimos, mostly in the harbor of the island which is called Pserimos or Aulakia, and when the excursion boats arrive from Kos, this small village also comes to life. There are no cars or roads on Pserimos, making it peaceful and quiet and and an excellent island for making walks. In the harbor are a number of taverns which ensure that the visitors lack nothing, but there are not that many accommodations on Pserimos. The beach near the harbor is good and is shallow, so it is very suitable for people with small children. Close by Pserimos is Platí Island with 2 islanders. There you can dive from the boat into the greenblue crystal waters. You can also swim or even go snorkeling in a remote virgin bay.
While bathing, swimming or relaxing on board, your typical barbeque lunch would be prepared to be served onboard.
