The Antigoni is the best picnic boat available for daily boat hire on Hydra Island Greece. The fun of up to 8 friends going out for a day on the sea to discover hidden coves, dive into the crystal clear water, sunbath on Antigoni's broad roof and to have lunch on board, is an experience that epitomises an idyllic Greek Islands' day out to enjoy the sun and sea.
The Antigoni is a privately owned boat that is available for private hire with Michalis the fully qualified captain and a crew member. The boat is licensed to carry up to 8 guests.
Your destination can be anywhere around the island that a full tank of petrol will take you. So you can cruise around Hydra's coastline stopping along the way at interesting coves. Or perhaps you want to go over to Dokos island, moor up for a while to enjoy more fun diving in and out of the sparkling water. The choice is yours.
This traditional boat is lovingly maintained and meets full safety standards.
On board, there's a fully fitted kitchen with a BBQ grill, microwave, fridge and big chill boxes along with ample glasses, plates and cutlery.
The inside cabin is fitted with cushioned seating and a table with more than enough room for everyone to sit together to eat lunch. The side covers can be raised or lowered depending on how much shade you want inside.
There's a music system on board and also a toilet.
The deck and roof of the boat have fitted cushions making it very comfortable for sunbathing.
And it's easy to get in and out of the Antigoni with the lowered steps and diving platform.
You can either pre-book a delicious lunch from Orea Ydra or you can bring your own picnic with you. Whatever you prefer but the boat comes with a supply of ice and water as a minimum.
Captain Michalis Anargirou is a friendly, well-qualified, Greek and English speaking, young man, who will not only drive the boat but knows the coastline of Hydra from childhood so can take you to all the best places for your day out.
The Antigoni is permanently moored in Hydra Harbour, but the boat is moved to the inner wall near the clock tower so that boarding from the rear is easier and you don't have to walk the plank!
