Activity Description

Spend a memorable day with Captain Yiorgis, the reincarnation of 'Zorba the Greek'! 
Departing in the morning from Kissamos with his 9 meter boat, Captain YIorgis will take you to the exotic Balos lagoon where you will stay for a few hours of swimming and relaxation. Around 2pm, you will sail across the bay to the island of Gramvousa,  where you will have plenty of time to swim off the boat, lay on the beach or hike up to the Venetian castle of the island to enjoy the captivating views. 
At lunch time, your Captain will prepare for you 'kakavia', a traditional fresh fish soup made from the catch of the day and will treat you with a variety of Cretan and Greek dishes, to be enjoyed either on board or on the beach. 
Throughout the day you will be offered delicious, traditional Cretan snacks and nibbles, fresh seasonal fruit and ample chilled wine, water, local raki or honey raki to seal this day with the best of what the Cretan hospitality has to offer. 
Just before sunset, your host will treat you with traditional Greek desserts and -of course- more wine and raki! After sunset, you will embark onboard for your return to Kissamos harbour. 

Special Features

  • Magnificent, exotic locations and scenery
  • Warm, local hospitality 
  • Delicious culinary experience of authentic Cretan Greek food

Why We Like It

This is an extraordinary boat trip, away from the 'mass', to two of the best Greek beaches. Captain Yiorgis' hospitality, passion for life and love of his homeland, Crete, make this full-day day cruise one of the best things to do in Crete and an experience of a lifetime.
