Absolutely, it will be your best day during your holiday in lovely Crete, so do not miss it ... we look forward to welcoming you on board.

Sailing Trip 

This unique sailing experience will take you (in case you don't stay in the area) to the southern part of Chania & Crete. Being driven through the stunning landscapes of the Chania countryside, you will reach the port of Chora Sfakion which is our starting point. Sfakia is a picturesque and historic village so just take some time to explore it after your trip.

So we will depart in the morning from the Sfakia Port, and our first stop will be at Glyka Nera for a morning, excellent, refreshing dive. 

Glyka Nera (meaning "sweet water" because of the freshwater that gushes from the pebbles!) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete, with deep blue waters and nice pebbles.

After a “boat-made” meal we will head to Marmara or Dialiskari beach, an amazing secluded small pebbly bay shaped near the exit of the imposing Aradena Gorge.

Our last stop and swim will be in the afternoon at the picturesque bay of Loutro Village tasting some delicious and refreshing fruit, and gazing at this magical place.

Please note that during this ultimate sailing cruise, you will really feel relaxed and you will have a sense of isolation and privacy.

This is the only one sailing trip in south Chania (so you don't have to look for some other options).

Moreover, due to the high mountains just above us, we will be fully protected from the strong north winds, eliminating the possibility of your excursion being canceled.
