Relaxing day
Stephane_L
, Jun 2022
We had a great day with George and Alexandra. This is basically a ride to Dia island off Heraklion where you anchor and pass the day swimming and sunbathing. Out at 10:00 back by 16:00. The food was ok. This trip is what you make it and depends on the other members of the group. If you want to walk on the island make sur to bring proper footware.

Poor value for money
Pauline_T
, Oct 2021
The trip was pleasant enough but compared to similar trips taken elsewhere in Greece, this was very poor value for money at £120 pp. The departure port was moved from Hersonisos to Heraklion which cost us an extra 160 Euros in taxi fares for the six of us. The trip itself was uninteresting and just involved sailing straight to Dia island where anchor was dropped to take a dip from boat. Lunch was only adequate at best. Then sailed straight back to port with no other stop offs. This was certainly an overpriced trip for what was on offer.

Rough seas but a superb trip

Despite a choppy sea, the crew (Sergey & George) were excellent and reassuring. George was a fantastic crew man, full of stories, charm and funny. Excellent food as well from both and an all round relaxing, enjoyable and memorable. trip.

The Cruise was amazing, the boat was very nice, we were only 2 families on it. The food was excellent, all home made (or it seems so), the place we stopped was kind of paradise with turquoise water. Thank you so much for everything

What a Great Day!
Jonathan_R

What a great day we had making the way to Dhia Island, enjoying its waters, and then heading back to Crete! The captain and crew were fun, and took the time to show us some of the ropes on steering the boat — and even surprised us with a birthday celebration for one of our traveling party. A nice touch — along with everything else for the day! We especially enjoyed swimming around the calm waters at Dhia, and paddle boarding in the crystal blue waters. Others in the party had fun fishing, too. All in all a super time was had by all!

We had a fabulous time. They fed us well, took us to a beautiful bay on Dia and did a great job communicating with us what to expect as far as wind and wave conditions. We are thankful we had this experience with such competent staff.

Great trip, delicious food, perfect service! We were only 8 persons on board + 2 of the crew! The trip to Dia took about 2h and we had enough time to enjoy lunch and relax in the beautiful water in the bay of Dia! Highly recommended! Thanks again for the great day!

We had a great day on the catamaran. The staff from booking to Captain are all very nice and helpful. Due to cancellations our trip started from Heraklion instead of Hersonissos. The team took excellent care of this change and arranged a shuttle service for us and also assisted with Covid testing The lunch that was provided was very delicious.

Part Captain, part chef! My 10 year old son and I had a delightful day. We took about a one hour cruise to Dia. Threw down anchor and enjoyed the ocean. Our guide cooked up an amazing lunch; spinach lasagna, green salad, Greek salad, Polemta, grilled fish, muscles, homemade cheese pies, sugar cookies, fresh fruit, soft drinks and endless white wine. We sailed with folks from Lithuania, Latvia, Britain, and Isreal and had a great time mixing with this international crowd, (they all spoke English, including the guide.). We had about three hours to explore the waters off of Dia Island. My son and I collected sea urchin husks that the women on board thought were really cool. An experience we won’t soon regret! Stop thinking about it and book this now! I promise you won’t regret it!

Spectacular sea trip!!!
Sergey F
, Oct 2019
Was booking it as a fishing trip but never even got to fishing itself as everything else was so spectacular and driving that I completely forgotten about my main reason being there :) Captain and crew are super friendly, helping and entertaining! Food, drinks and whole setting were fantastic! Harbor we stayed at is very nice of a wild-type place (no tourists or anyone at all) so we had plenty of pleasure of swimming, exploring underwater life, relaxing on the beach - all only for us! Trips there (to harbor) and back were also not without adventure what made it even more unforgettable! Thanks a lot to captain for perfect experience! P.S. Completely failed to mention the yacht itself - that’s a peace of art (without exaggeration) the biggest in the harbor and seem like the safest sheep there as well. Very comfortable with several cabins to stay at and leaving-room-like area (no clue how it is called :) to accommodate nice dinner party!

Hilariously wet.
Colin T

The start of the cruise was a hilarious roller coaster against the waves. The captain and his crewe member were friendly, polite, informative and very accommodating The destination was secluded and very beautiful with enough time there to explore the small beach and snorkel around the area. The food was simple but with a choice for all tastes and it was all made freshly. Only white wine and soft drinks were available included in the price. If you wanted a beer then there was an extra charge. This was an unexpected cost in view of the price of the cruise. Over all, we had a fantastic laugh and a great day out had by all of us.
