Do not miss the opportunity to take a day cruise on the Pagasetic bay! Picturesque villages, which lie on the southern shore of Pelion, uninhabited islands, protected ancient monasteries and swimming in the calm waters of this part of the sea will bring you indescriba- ble pleasure! Our traditional boat will take you next to one of the local taverns , where you will enjoy a delicious meal of local cuisine. 

Departure from the Agios Ioannis and via Tsagarada we reach the picturesquely village of Pagasetic gulf, Milina. Milina is a picturesque seaside village at the Pelion Peninsula. It is situated directly at the Pagasitic Bay, with views across the crystal clear water towards the nearby small islands Alatas and Prasouda. We continue our journey from the harbour of Milina with south-eastern direction sailing to Pagasetic gulf close to coast to some of the most beautiful beaches of the area. The captain will select two-three points for your swimming (Prasouda-Tzaseni etc) on our way to the island of Trikeri where we will have a light dinner in a tavern next to the sea. We return north-eastern direction with destination to Lefokastro for the afternoon swimming and afterwards we sail for Milina watching the sunset. A beautiful and unique picture. In Milina, you will finish you cruise reaching late the afternoon where it will wait for you the bus in order to transports us back to Agios Ioannis.

The departure of this small marine wandering in Pagasitikos can also start from the small port of Milina.
The first historical years after 1000BC in Pagasitikos there were the Magnets that inhabited only the coastal area, mainly  on the calm side of Pagasitikos bay and less on the side of the Aegean Sea. Their cities must have been quite strong with naval activity as they participated in the Trojan War and they are mentioned not only by Homer but from other ancient writers like Pliny. The cities of the Magnets have remained unidentified as limited excavations have been made in the area. From the 6th century the Magnets are controlled by the Thessalians who build Pagases (opposite the current city of Volos) as a seaport city of Pherae (the current city of Velestino). Pelion is connected with the expedition of Xerxes against Greece in 480 BC. On the southern coast of the Cape mountain of Sepia, a big part of the Persian fleet was destroyed by stormy winds, while further South, opposite the Artemision in Evia, the naval  forces of the two opponents were involved and the Greeks managed to intercept the Persian fleet.
