    TOUR DESCRIPTION

    Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with our 3-day private boat trip, exploring the stunning coastline of Crete. Departing from the charming city of Chania, we’ll start our journey by cruising along the Spatha cape, where we’ll discover hidden coves and beaches that are off the beaten path.

    Next, we’ll dock at the famous Balos lagoon and Gramvousa Island, where we’ll explore the Venetian fortress and shipwreck that have become iconic landmarks of the area. As we sail on, we’ll make our way to the breathtaking Falassarna beach and continue south to the pink sands of Elafonisi and the picturesque Kedrodasos, a breathtaking sundy beach surrounded by cedar trees.

    As the sun begins to set on our first day, we’ll make our way to the tranquil fishing village of Paleochora, where we’ll spend the night on our mini-yacht. The next morning, we’ll set sail for the remote Gavdos Island, home to some of the most incredible beaches in the region and the southernmost point of Europe. We’ll spend the day exploring the sandy shores of Potamos, Agios Ioannis, Dianna, Tripiti, Sarakiniko, and Karave, where we’ll spend the night under the stars!

    On our final third day, we’ll say goodbye to Gavdos and sail to Loutro and Domata beach, soaking up the last of the stunning scenery before returning to Paleochora. From there, you can choose to transfer to Chania by car or sail back with us on the boat.

    Free snorkeling supplies (upon request), drinks, and light lunch.

    Overnight stay on the mini-yacht or in a hotel

    Suggested starting time: 9:30 a.m.
