Cruises and Boat Trips, Ayia Napa
Though it is mainly a show for kids but I couldn't resist the pirate ship, always admired it.
The ship is a theme for Black Pearl (from pirates of the caribbean Movie) and the crew are dressed like the pirates in the movie.
They sail with sounds effects and do a little show for the kids followed by a stop for swimming, then another show then another swim, food is served.
There is a Find the treasure contest and a canon show at the end of the trip, the characters are well actors.
A fantastic boat trip around the coast on a fast boat. The trip took us around the coast, we saw the Ghost Town of Famagusta, Cliff Jumping, all the beaches and bays between Ayia Napa and Protaras, Swam and snorkelled with fish, fed the fish, relaxed in the sun with a drink. The drink and snorkelling equipment was provided free of charge as were the transfers from our accomodation! A great trip!
When you are in Ayia Napa, most probably you will be offered a boat trip for half a day or for a whole day at sea, which is a good way to have a nice time. You will not see much (don't hope to see any shipwrecks), but the views will be beautiful, and if the weather is nice (and mostprobably it will be nice in summer) you'll have a great time.
Some of such tours include passing by a fish farm (see my pictures), and you also have a chance to see wild dolphins when they come to play with the boat.
The price for a full-day trip is about USD100, though maybe there are cheaper similar tours.
The temperatures can sometimes rise quite high and the beaches are so crowded you can't find a free spot anywhere. Then it's great to spend a day out on a boat. I participated on a boat cruise, a whole day trip, to the east coast of Cyprus. The water was emerald green and there were some very interesting caves. You can go snorkling, too. I loved it. Just go to the marina to look for boats I think there are several that do such trips.
Some hotels and companies sell boat trips around the coastal line of ayia napa. It's a great way to enjoy the beautiful views of the caves and the sea. It costs about 8 CYP and the food and drink on board are about 4 CYP for food and 1 CYP for drinks. Some boats stop on the way and you can jump from the boat into the water. Bring swimminggoggles, coz the water is very salty.
You can cruise around Cyprus in the small party cruises that are provided by blue &green cruises. Their are six type of cruises: Daily lazy day cruise, half day glass bottom cruise, party boat(booze cruise), sunset sun cruise, aquarium park boat trip, liopetri river cruise. I only benn in party cruise and i enjoyed it very much, DON'T MISS!!
