    On this unforgettable full-day private cruise to Falasarna (8h) from the enchanting Chania Old Port, we will navigate the azure waters of the North Chania Region. Our exclusive adventure unveils the hidden treasures of the sea, beginning with the iconic Balos Beach. Feel the soft sand beneath your feet as you anchor to immerse yourself in the crystalline waters or capture the breathtaking beauty with your lens.

    Next, our maritime odyssey takes you to the historic Falasarna, where the secrets of World War II come to life. Snorkel amidst the remnants of a sunken warship near ancient Falasarna, an experience that combines history and underwater wonders. The turquoise waters and pristine white sands of Falasarna Beach provide the perfect backdrop for relaxation.

    As the day unfolds, we set sail for the majestic Gramvousa, crowned by a medieval fortress perched on a rocky pinnacle. Marvel at the Venetian stronghold built in 1579, a testament to a bygone era of maritime defense against Ottoman Corsairs. The adventure continues with a visit to Menies Beach at Rodopou Peninsula, a secluded paradise with tranquil shores.

    Our grand finale is Theodorou Island, a picturesque stop to soak in the panoramic views of the North Chania Region. Throughout the journey, our seasoned skipper ensures your safety and comfort, guiding you back to Chania Old Harbour. This all-encompassing boat tour promises not only a thrilling exploration of renowned destinations but also an intimate connection with the rich maritime history and natural wonders of Crete. Join us for a day of discovery and relaxation on the shimmering waters of the Cretan coast.
