Discover the unique wildlife and nature of the Greek islands!
Mystic Blue was inspired by a team of skippers, divers, biologists and environmentalists who were brought together by their love of sea and nature.
Our primary objective is the study and protection of the marine world and the raising of awareness on environmental issues. In order to support our goal, we have formed Wild Tales, an ecotouristic project involving sailing and exploring unique species.
Experience an unforgettable journey of discovery!
Spotting dolphins and whales, exploring unique species, trekking through untouched paths,
visiting national marine parks, applying simple ecological methods to field… are just a few of the activities you could participate in our Wild Tale projects.
Under the guidance of our experienced team of biologists you will be introduced to the tens of endemic species, both from the animal and plant kingdoms which exist only in this small corner of the globe.
Wild Tale One: Biodiversity ... (30-June - 6 July)
Starting on the 30th of June from the capital of the Cyclades, Syros, and ending after one week at the volcanic island of Milos, Dr Panayiots Pafilis will introduce you to the mysteries of the Aegean Sea, the “Archipelago of species”.
Endangered animals like the Mediterranean Seal Monachus monachus and the loggerhead turtle Caretta caretta, endemic species like the Skyros Wall Lizard Podarcis gaigeae, Milos Wall Lizard Podarcis milensis, Milos Viper Macrovipera hanschweizeri are the natural, unique wealth of the Aegean Sea. On our way to discover them, playful sea birds and dolphins will be our companions.
Wild Tale Two: Giants & Dwarves... (8-21 September)
Starting on the 8th of September, Tahita will set course for the area of depths up to 2,000m in the west Ionia Sea, at a place where sperm whales Physeter macrocephalus gather to forage the giant squid. With the use of our hydrophone we’ll try to listen to the magical voices of our friends and track them down.
Panayiotis has chosen the islands where we’ll be anchoring in between our whale spotting in accordance to the uniqueness of their wildlife. He’ll introduce you to the magical world of species like birds, reptiles, marine invertebrates and mammals as well as the local fairy tales of places unspoilt by modern way of life.
