    TOUR DESCRIPTION

    Embark on a captivating 7-hour private boat trip, commencing from the scenic shores of Kolymvari, where the voyage promises an exploration of the most iconic treasures along the Cretan coastline. The journey unfolds with a breathtaking cruise to the renowned Balos beach, revealing an extraordinary panorama of azure waters set against the dramatic backdrop of the Cretan “table”-mountains. Immerse yourself in the tranquility of this pristine haven before navigating towards Gramvousa Island, a historical gem steeped in Venetian legacy. The imposing fortress atop Gramvousa stands as a majestic testament to bygone eras, complemented by the allure of a sunken ship resting near its shores, adding a touch of maritime mystery to the rich historical tapestry. As the private boat trip continues, your vessel gracefully glides towards Menies beach, a serene sanctuary boasting turquoise waters and ancient ruins, providing a peaceful interlude before the grand finale. Following the exploration of Menies, your experienced captain will unveil the hidden gems of the Rodopou Peninsula, showcasing secret private beaches such as Sfakos, Chironisia, and Limnionari—each a secluded paradise ideal for snorkeling and freediving enthusiasts, along with enchanting caves waiting to be discovered. This extraordinary journey encapsulates not only the natural wonders of Balos and the historical richness of Gramvousa but also the alluring secret gems and caves of the Rodopou Peninsula, adding layers of intrigue to your unforgettable maritime adventure.

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