With our speed boat "katerina" we will head for Marathon Cape. After a briefing about the proper use of snorkeling equipment we will explore the hidden bays of the area. I will guide you to the most interesting places where we will observe the unique marine life of the Mediterranean Sea. The visibility is great so we will be able to see even the smallest creature of the seabed. Later, we can relax and sunbathe on the boat enjoying the warm, safe waters and the bright sun. This is the perfect moment to explain to you the importance of the area where one of the most significant battles of antiquity took place; the famous battle of Marathon. We will also swim at the golden sandy beach of Schinias Bay. There we will enjoy the view of the "koukounaria" forest and I will share with you the legends which follow it and why it is so unique. During the activity you will be able to taste and enjoy some local treats and fresh fruits. On our way back we will use the same road as the historical Marathon race. This is the perfect way to end an adventure which begins in 2019, takes us to 490BC and brings us back to today when we respectfully enjoy what nature offers us. Highlights -Small groups ( up to 7 people ) -An experienced professional will help you and guide you throughout the trip. -Enjoy the beauty of the historical Marathon area. -Two different spots.
