Hop into a tender and make your way to the shore and with your local Pelorus guide. Ride horses across the stunning island to a secluded beach for a morning dip in the ocean with your horses. Revel in the vibrant array of flora and fauna before settling down for a picnic in the Valley of Butterflies, where you will be surrounded by a variety of colourful butterfly species. For something a little more adventurous, swing at anchor in the uninhabited bay of the Drionissi islets, where you can scuba dive the Drionissi canyon, learn to spearfish, or cruise between crevasses spotting the remains of amphorae, turtles and barracuda. If you chose to spearfish, bring your catch back to shore where your chef will cook the fresh fish to perfection over an open fire on the beach.
Cruise throughout the morning towards ‘The Island of the Deep Blue’. A picturesque and secluded island, Amorgos has been overlooked by tourists and remains an authentic treasure of the Cyclades. Wander through Chora, the epitome of a traditional Greek village made up of whitewashed streets festooned with bougainvillea. Amorgos’ surrounding waters, colourful reefs and caves offer glorious dive sites that house stingrays, tuna and Mediterranean monk seals to name but a few. On the east side of the island, you will find a unique dive site that bears witness to the once-bustling mines that sustained the area. This dive is a chance to do something a little different, an opportunity for the inquisitive diver to discover a site like no other. Return to your yacht in the evening and watch the sun set over the island as unwind with cocktails on deck.
