New boat excursions from luxury Athenian hotel

Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel partners with Aegean Rib Voyages

Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens has forged a new partnership with Aegean Rib Voyages to offer a range of scheduled and tailor-made boat excursions to local destinations.

The Hotel’s spectacular beachfront setting on the Athens Riviera makes it perfectly positioned for a variety of seafaring trips to the nearby Argo-Saronic Gulf islands, the Saronic Gulf islands, and the Cycladic islands. Guests can discover the area’s most desirable destinations and secluded sites accessible only by sea, exploring ancient monuments, picturesque towns, hidden coves and crystal-clear waters.

The streamlined service enables guests to step directly from the elegant surrounds of the Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens’ private jetty onto a luxuriously appointed powerboat. Aegean Rib Voyages is the region’s leading provider of charters, VIP transfers, inter-island and mainland connections, matching state-of-the-art vessels with unparalleled maritime expertise.

With five types of vessel available – including three new world-leading ribs in their category – the fleet can accommodate any travelling preference.

Three sleek Sealink craft seat 10 to 11 passengers and include comfortable indoor cabins, while the classic Targa 37

houses two indoor cabins, accommodating 13 people on-deck and eight in the indoor pilothouse. The Praevado, awarded the 2020 European Powerboat of the Year, seats 11 passengers with a walk-around configuration and two indoor cabins.

Scheduled or specially tailored itineraries allow guests to uncover the region’s natural beauty and cultural heritage. Just 40 minutes away lie sites such as Cape Sounio, with its 444 BC Temple of Poseidon, where Lord Byron found inspiration; the island of Aegina, with its series of quaint villages and Aphea Temple; and the uninhabited islet of Moni Aegina, belonging to a monastery, with a natural park where peacocks, deer and wild goats roam freely.

Further afield is Poros, with its fragrant pine, lemon and olive groves and neoclassical buildings; Nafplio, the first capital of Greece, famed for its listed architecture and Venetian castles; and Hydra, a charming car-free island with a revolutionary history.
