M/Y Turanga is one of the few surviving classic, original wooden trawler from the

charm and quality of yesteryear.
The livability on board Turanga is excellent thanks to the large spaces, the easy
access to the foredeck and the upper deck, and finally to the fly-bridge.
The upper deck is a real terrace over 20 meters over the sea. from which you can

noise is almost zero.

DAY CRUISE 1
10.00 am to 18.00 pm
Round trip PALAIROS/PALAIROS
the following program is indicative and not binding. the route and the stops may vary according to the
weather and sea conditions or according to guests’ special requests
9.00 - 10.00 Boarding
We chose the town of Palairos and its marina as our base because unlike other places it still retains that
typically Greek flavor and charm of small fishing villages.
Only 20 minutes from Aktio Preveza airport and 30 minutes from the center of Lefkada, you can enjoy a
cappuccino in front of the fishing boats waiting to step onboard Turanga.
10.00-11.30 Bay cruise
heading south quitely to the small island of Formikoula, from the comfortable bow dinette, from the
fly-bridge or from any other place on the boat, you can enjoy a splendid and unique view of the bay of
lefkada, admiring the coast that from Palairos heads south towards Mytikas and Astakos, the profile of
lefkada and its imposing mountains, the famous islands of Skorpios and Meganisi and even the other
main islands of the inland sea (kalamos, kastos, atokos, ithaca, kefalonia).
Your first destination will be the charming little island of Formikoula, the home of the monk seal
While enjoying a swim or a refreshment in the crystal clear waters of the south-east bay of Formikoula,
you may be lucky enough to meet the rare monk seals, who have a permanent home right in the caves of
this peaceful islet
13.00-14.00 Heading Kastos
It is now time to leave the monk seals and head a little further south, to reach the characteristic island of
Kastos, which with its small bays of very white sand and its windmills, is perhaps one of the most
fascinating islands of this area.
We will reach the small port of Kastos for a lunch in the local tavern in the shade of vine leaves and
bouganvillae, or to have a light lunch on board Turanga, moored in one of the beautiful bays of the island
16.00-17.30 Kalamos & Mytikas
It's time to get back to Palairos.
we will exploit the shelter provided by the islands of Kalamos and Kastos to the brisk northwest afternoon
wind to enjoy a comfortable navigation between the low island of Kastos and the imposing "Mountain in
the sea" which takes the name of Kalamos.
Going around the island, hit by the intense scent of its pine forests and the deafening song of its cicadas,
we will have a view of the characteristic village of Mytikas and its long beach.
Heading north back to Palairos, the setting sun over lefkada and meganisi will give us a new masterpiece
of colors and emotions.
17.30-18.00 Back to Palairos
It's time to leave us, but this intense day still has many emotions to give us!
Disembarked from Turanga, if you want, you can afford to stop for dinner in the port of palairos, with an
ear to the noisy chatter of the village elders and an eye to the dish and the sea in front of you.
