Sailing Cruise from Kissamos to Gramvousa & Balos Lagoon - Review

My sunny Kalimera and best wishes for a glorious weekend.

Such a nice start of the day ... 

Thank you so much for reaching out!
It was a great trip for us, I hope to return to Crete next year and do another trip.
One person in my group thinks she may have misplaced her fitbit tracker on the ship we were sailing on and wanted me to inquire if it was located? She offered to pay for the shipping if it could be sent regular post to the US?
Thank you again,
- Ted

We love our guests!...

Diktynna was the virgin goddess of hunting and she was worshipped fervently in western Crete as the patroness of hunters and fishermen.

Diktynna’s name may be connected with Mount Dikte but the Greek historian Strabo tells us that it derives from the word diktyon, meaning ‘net’ (Strab. 10.4.12). Legend has it that when the lustful king...
