    TOUR DESCRIPTION

    Kissamos Port is the starting point of this all day private boat trip (7-8h) to Balos beach and the hidden gems of the Rodopou Peninsula. We will first visit Balos beach early in the morning to avoid the cruise ship crowds and enjoy the breathtaking sea view and the Cretan “table”-mountains. After, we will visit Gramvousa Island, its Fortress from the Venetian times, and the sunken ship in front of the island. Then, we sail off to Rodopou Peninsula to discover the secret beaches and caves of Cape Spatha. Our first stop in this area will be Menies beach, known for its turquoise waters and ancient ruins. We will anchor there for a while for some swimming. After that, our hospitable captain will show us some secret private beaches and caves in Rodopou Peninsula such as Limnionari and Chironisia bay, ideal for snorkeling and freediving. Finally, we return to Kissamos Port while listening to our favorite Spotify list and enjoying the wild landscape of north Crete.

    Alternative Option

    The boat will depart from Kissamos Port, and after exploring the shores of Rodopou Peninsula, the disembarkation will take place at Kolymvari Port. In this case, we will provide transportation services to return you to the departure point.

    Free snorkeling supplies (upon request), drinks, and snacks.

    Suggested starting time: 8.30 – 9.30 a.m.
