This was our landfall after Malta.
Much of the southern bay is protected for sea turtles and anchoring is prohibited.
Since there were not too many other anchorages around the island, we decided to take a tour-boat day tour of the island.
We had a wonderful day, and it actually worked out cheaper than the diesel we would have used had we motored around the island in our own boat.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 21-Jul-2006
Zakinthos (Town Dock)
We paid €18.84 for two nights on the city dock.
This was our port of entry into Greece, so a dock agent took our passports and ship's papers and returned the next day with our new Greek Transit log and a bill for €30 for the log and

€20 for his services.

Waterman on the dock (Water)
It costs €5 for "dirty water"(ie not potable for wash down, etc) and €10 for "clean" water, which we put in our tanks.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 29-Mar-2007
A boat tour around Zakinthos. (Excursion)
Since much of the southern bay is protected for turtles, and anchoring is prohibited, we decided to take a one day boat tour around the island rather than do it with our own boat.
We worked out that the trip cost less than the diesel we would have used to cover the same area.
I think we negotiated a fee of about €23 per person from one of the many street vendors on the Zakinthos waterfront.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 21-Jul-2006
Shipwreck Beach (Beach)
The famous, post card beach is probably one of
the most photographed in the world.
The ship was aparently wrecked here in the 80's.
