Boat cruises around Lefkada
One of the favorite activities for visitors is to find an excursion boat and conquer the Ionian Sea!
Several companies offer daily cruises from the ports of the island, primarily from the port of Nidri and a few from Vasiliki. Some of these excursions are visiting the most famous beaches of Lefkada like Porto Katsiki or Egremni, while other boats sail around the nearby islands and spend some time there. The excursion boats usually depart in the morning hours and return to the harbor in late afternoon. You can buy the tickets directly from the boat’s staff during the evenings in the harbour, or all day long in travel agencies, kiosks, ticket offices.
