It has taken some time , but this is my final post on my recent trip to Zante, Greece. I have already posted-
It was a great holiday, as you can see from the posts above, but I have left the best until last Keri Caves.
One of the best ways you can see Keri Caves in Zante is by chartering a speedboat. We chartered two, one with a local pilot so we knew where to go, and one piloted by Mark Crimmings from our party (or as the official pilot called him Kapetanios Bretania).
I was on the official pilot’s boat. He knew the caves so well, zooming in and then back throttling so that we stopped inches from the cave walls.
It was really thrilling and the caves are fantastic.
The water is so blue against the white rocks.
We anchored up on a shingle bank and explored those blue bays a bit more. The water is really salty which gives you great buoyancy but makes it difficult to dive deep because of the pressure of that denser water.
Here I am, doing the Nirvana Nevermind cover again…
…and Sharon giving the thumbs up.
We did actually see some fish after we finished messing around.
A load of the Saddled Seabream we saw in the earlier post. They seem little bothered by us splashing by.
We only had a short dip as there was still a lot to see on our boat trip.
You can get up really close to the cave walls with these small speed boats.
Plenty of caves to explore…
…and sunny sea to sail…
…nipping in and out of the Keri Caves.
From the Keri Caves it was then a short speedboat trip to Turtle Island. It even looks like a turtle!
Once on Turtle Island, landing is a bit of a challenge, but we got there in the end.
Forget the Caretta Caretta turtles on Turtle Island, it has a floating ice-cream van!
The obligatory beach selfie.
Some arty driftwood shots.
I guess everything bleaches white in this sun eventually.
Sightseeing done it was time to return our speedboats to their moorings and wave goodbye to our guide.
What a great way to end the DimExcuses Greek Odyssey with such a fantastic boat trip. So there it is my final photos from Zante, Greece, basically it was all Greek to me, DimExcuses.
