Ionian Sea - Aegean Sea, Greece, September 2019
Back in Greece and onboard Eja again! After several weeks in colder latitudes, the 29°C warm water feels very tempting.
From Kefalonia island in the Ionian Sea, we so head east towards the Gulf of Corinth, where the short, 6,4 km, Corinth Canal brings us to the other side of the Peloponnese Peninsula.
Here, in the Aegean Sea, our voyage continues even further east 💨⛵️
The well known `Meltemi´ provides us with strong northerly winds. After some choppy, but efficient days at sea, we reach Kalymnos.
The island of Kalymnos, in the southeastern Aegean Sea, is known as the “sponge-divers’ island” as well as being a popular place for rock climbing. Our first visit here was 8 years ago when filming the local sponge divers during our sailing voyage to the Red Sea in 2011.
Very happy to be back in this peaceful location, I´m looking forward to further experience the place and its impressive marine life.
More from our recent dives and encounters with the local marine life in the next blogpost! 🐟💙🐬
