Sea breezes, a dramatic shoreline, secret beaches, more than 300 days of sunshine per year and some of the Mediterranean's clearest waters make Crete a real paradise for sailing.
Consider a sailing tour to explore areas of shore and small islands not accessible in any other way, a sunny Summer day spent on the water soaking up the Mediteranean sun, swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters.
A memorable sailing experience awaits for you in Chania, Crete.
This is your sailing tour, this is a relaxed day out in the blue Cretan sea, with a Dromor 37ft sailboat with a maximum speed of 7.5 mph and a capacity of 8 people..
Our destinations are beaches and small islands around the Chania bay such as Maherida, ,Theodorou and Lazaretta. Beaches and isles so close to Chania, yet, reaching them by boat gives a whole new perspective and uniqueness to them.
Absolutely, the weather will always determine the direction we will follow and sail.
We embark from the Old Harbour of Chania at 10.00 am and in less than an hour we are in the small beach of Maherida with its crystal clear waters. You can swim and go snorkeling admiring the undersea beauty. This tiny little shore, hidden from the wind and untouched by man, reminds us of the absolute Cretan seashore beauty.
The northern wind blows our sails and we will sail towards the beautiful island of Thodorou. In two hours, we will have our second stop. While you will be swimming next to the Cretan wild goat (kri-kri) and among other animals that can be seen on the island, the captain will be preparing a light snack that will be savoured with wine under the shade of the boat shade-tent.
Our next stop is the small island of Lazaretta. Apart from the beautiful underwater view, it is worth swimming all the way to the small coral sandy beach of the island.
Our way back home offers unique views ... of the Egyptian Lighthouse prevailing in the old Harbour and a panoramic observation of the harbor and the Venetian buildings bathed in the warmth of the afternoon light.
We will be back around 17:00-17.30pm.
During our sailing trip and several stops for a swim, light snacks and of course wine (bottled), beers or soft drinks will be served.
The boat is crewed with an English speaking skipper, who is an experienced professional and will turn your sailing day tour to a unique and memorable experience, the highlight of your holiday in Crete.
