The Sami Star sets off promptly so don't be late! A busy but not overcrowded boat. The captain seems to know to get to the various stops on the one day Ithaca cruise before the other, larger boats sailing the same route! Friendly crew and...More

If you are single, a couple or family this trip is a must when visiting Sami. The day's schedule is perfect giving you enough time between swims and visiting this very beautiful island. A steal at €30...just sit back and loose yourself. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
