PlanetOur tours take place in the Regional Marine Park of Northern Karpathos Saria -Astakidonision. According to the Environmental Management Agency of the Karpathos-Saria protected area, Karpathos is home to one of the largest populations of the monk seal and has been declared one of the 'Important Bird Areas of Europe'. Our guides are locals with experience in enviromental protection thus our guests are able to learn detailed information about flora and fauna.
