Why we like It

This is an extraordinary boat trip to a handful of the most amazing beaches of the island of Crete, away from the 'mass'. 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. 

Activity Description

Spend a memorable day with Captain Yiorgis, the reincarnation of 'Zorba the Greek'! 
Departing in the morning from Ravdoucha with his 9 meter boat, Captain YIorgis will take you to the exotic Balos lagoon where you will stay until 12pm for swimming and relaxation, with departure just before the arrival of the crowds [in cases of more than 3-4 Beaufort winds this stop is excluded from the itinerary].
Next destination: the Spatha peninsula and the 'hidden' secluded beaches of Agios Pavlos and Aspri Limni in Spatha (not to be confused with the beaches with similar names on the island!) for swimming in beautiful coves which are protected by the strong seasonal summer winds.
Around 4pm you will reach the secluded Amygdalia bay where your lunch will be served, slow-cooked in a traditional wood oven. Your host will treat you with a variety of Cretan and Greek delicacies, to be enjoyed either on board or on the beach which is equipped with a private set up of umbrellas and sun-beds. 
For the rest of the day you will relax, swim, snorkel, canoe, kayak and enjoy the sea and sun at Amygdalia bay. 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 Ravdoucha. 
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.
