Sailing trips in Crete
Starting from the Old Harbour of Chania for daily cruises or from the southern region of Chania for a multi-day sailing trip; your adventure begins. We provide a variety of choices whether you prefer a sailing boat or a motor boat. Travellers have the option of a relaxing sailing cruise around the bay of Chania or a longer sailing trip to the mesmerizing Balos and Gramvousa beaches. For multi-day cruises you can choose to visit the Aegean Islands or the fascinating beaches of South Crete.
Every option is provided upon request. Let us know what would you like to do and we will organize your sailing trip or cruise according your taste and needs.
One Day Sailing Trips
At 10:00AM we set sail from the Old Harbour of Chania. In less than an hour we arrive at the crystal clear waters of Maherida beach (A). There you can swim or go snorkeling admiring the undersea beauty. Maherida with its tiny little shore, hidden from the wind and untouched by man, is a reminder of the sheer Cretan coastline beauty.
Our sailing cruise continues to the beautiful island of Thodorou (B) where you can swim and go snorkeling while sightseeing the endangered species of Kri Kri, the Cretan wild goat. In the meantime the captain will prepare a light snack savoured with wine or beer under the shade of the boat tent.
Anchor up and we set sail again! Our next destination is the Lazaretta island. There you can again enjoy the beautiful underwater view and we highly recommend swimming all the way to the island’s small sandy beach.
At 17:00 pm anchors down, back at the Old Harbour where our sailing trip is over.
If you wish a shorter trip we can schedule a 2 stops cruise for swimming and snorkeling at the islands of Thodorou and Lazaretta.
Fruits, soft drinks and water are all included in every cruise.
Would you like a different route or a more private cruise? Please let us know and together we will organize the perfect sailing trip for you.
Multi-day Sailing Trips
For sailing trips longer than a day and an overnight stay on board we offer a big Bavaria 47 ft sailing boat with 4 double cabins. We can schedule a 2,3 or even 7 days cruise alongside the southern coast of Crete or even through the Aegean islands.
The boat is available for rent with skipper only. Meals could be offered upon request.
Multi-day sailing trips are organized upon request and everything is adjusted (if possible) to meet your needs and desires.
One Day Motor Boat Trips
Embarking at 10:00 am our cruise starts from the Old Harbour of Chania. With a speed around 20-25 knots we travel for an hour and a half until we arrive at the famous Balos lagoon. Here we make a stop to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Balos, swim and go snorkeling.
After a while we are on the go to the pirate island of Gramvousa. Here travellers can relax, swim or go snorkeling. For those who wish to admire the view, we recommend hiking up to the Venetian fortress which still stands at a height of 137m over the beach.
At the meantime a light snack with beer, wine or refreshments will be prepared by the captain to cool you off from the hiking or swimming.
On our way back to Chania we will make a final stop at the island of Thodorou.
At 17:30 pm our cruise will be over at the Old Harbour of Chania.
If you wish to take on a shorter cruise visiting destinations closer to Chania please let us know. We can change our cruise upon request.
Multi-Day Motor Boat Trips From Chania
For motor boat cruise longer than a day we offer the Ferreti, a 50 ft yacht with 3 double cabins. Multi-day boat trips are available with skipper only.
We can arrange a boat trip for 2 or more days to the iconic Cycladic islands or -as we recommend- a 3 days boat trip to the South Crete coastline at attractive prices.
All options are available upon request. Please let us know your wishes and needs and we can organize the perfect boat trip for you together.
