Rent a Boat from Kissamos to Balos With or Without a Skipper

October 12, 2020

Have you ever thought that COVID-19 might lock us all up again? Well, let’s not waste our precious time. Are you on holidays in Crete? Well, Kissamos is a very well known place to stay if you want to stay away from the touristic spots of Chania. In Kissamos you have everything! Great food, awesome local people and most importantly Balos beach and Elafonissi are closer than you think. According to Google Maps by car you could spend around an hour to reach Balos. By car, you will definitely have too much heat coming from the outside, you might need to rent the car, take care of the gas and what if there is traffic? Or what if you will need to park really far away from the entrance to the beaches?

Well, there is always a better fresher solution! You can easily rent a RIB boat from Kissamos, Kastelli port for your boat trip to Balos. It’s a minimum of half an hour ride, not in a traffic jam, not in the heated roads. Rather you will be on board of our boat, meeting amazing local people, our skippers, and exploring, not only Balos, but also Gramvousa, the old fortress and deserted island.

If the weather allows it, you can even ask our skipper to take you to Falassarna or Elafonissi by boat. So, you are actually killing two birds with one stone, or we would say four birds. Balos, Gramvousa, Falassarna and Elafonissi. Do you know how long it would take you to visit all these places by car? At least 3 days one for each beach. Let’s not forget that you cannot even go to Gramvousa by car, since it’s an island opposite to Balos Lagoon.
