Sailing Trip in Chania, Crete ... 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 private 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 Mediterranean sun, swimming, and snorkeling in crystal clear waters.

A memorable sailing experience awaits you in picturesque Chania, Crete.

This is your sailing tour - cruise, this is a relaxed day out in the blue Cretan sea, with a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 40ft, with a maximum speed of 7.5 mph and a capacity of 8 - 10 people. 

Our destinations are beaches and small islands around Chania Bay such as Maherida, Theodorou, and Lazaretta. Beaches and isles are 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.

The Sailing Experience

We embark from the Old Harbour of Chania at 10.00 am and in less than an hour, we are on 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. In the meantime, Nikos the captain will prepare a light snack savored with wine or beer under the shade of the boat tent.

Anchor up and we set sail again! Our next destination is Lazaretta Island. There you can again enjoy the beautiful underwater view and we highly recommend swimming all the way to the island’s small sandy beach. 

At 17:00 pm anchors down, back at the Old Harbour where our sailing trip is over.   

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.

The boat is crewed by one of the best English-speaking skippers in Greece, who is an experienced professional and will turn your sailing day cruise into a unique and memorable experience, the highlight of your holiday in Crete.

During our sailing trip and several stops for a swim, light snacks and of course wine (bottled), beers, or soft drinks will be served.
