Awesome! We did the afternoon sail-tour (sunset) and had the best time ever. Super nice crew, great boat, delicious food, wine:-) and an awesome snorkeling spot! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing day! What a fabulous day. Chartered a boat for the day for a trip to a deserted island. Picked up promptly from the hotel by a very friendly driver to took us to the port. Met by Nicos who looked after all of us for the full day. Nipping in and out of secret bays, snorkelling, getting fascinating stories of Greek gods and the local history. All this topped off by an excellent lunch, prepared on board, and topped with fresh oregano that was gathered from the island. We all had the most magnificent day. Highly recommended. If you think that all this sounds expensive, it isn’t. Don’t let this put you off. Less than 90€ per person which included transfers, 7.5 hours sailing with 2 crew, a wonderful lunch and drinks (including wine). Probably cheaper than the cost of visiting a water park for the day. Give it a go, you won’t regret it.

Wow. Best holiday excursion ever. We’ve been on quite a few holiday excursions on various countries and this has been the best, most organised and least stressful by far. Collected by Michael at our hotel who made us feel at ease from the start. We were driven to the boat where we met Nicholas. My wife is registered blind and has dietary requirements as well and both were handled with care and sensitivity. The trip itself was phenomenal and the food the best we’ve all holiday. Would definitely recommend, and the sunset also did not disappoint!

Day trip to Dia We had a fantastic day with Nikos and Manos sailing over to Dia. The lunch was fantastic- fresh and local produce. Also great local history and information. Definitely recommend this one.
Η καλύτερη εμπειρία με σκάφος για αρχάριους Πολύ καλή εξυπηρέτηση από επαγγελματίες με γνώσεις του αντικειμένου. Άριστη γνώση συνθηκών και τοποθεσιών με θέληση για μεταβίβαση των γνώσεων στους πελάτες τους.

Highly recommended boat trip to Dia with George and Nancy Had the best boat trip today with George (Gorge?) and Nancy. Such nice and friendly, easygoing people, they are a treasure by themselves. They sailed us to Dia for half a day. For lunch they serve a really good meal (not the usual, but actually very tastfull cooking), Nancy is a great chef! If you're lucky, George lets you steer for a while and if you like you can help a bit with the sailing. And a special thank you to Thomas (from Austria), who picked us up at the hotel. We met some really great people today and had a wonderful experience. (@Thomas, did you get your phone working again?)

Truly magical afternoon and excellent service! Alongside my 2 other young female flat mates, I partook in the 15:30 sailing on a Monday afternoon to the Island of Dia, and it truly exceeded all my expectations. Nikos and Emma were very kind and approachable - both open to conversation, but also allowed us time to ourselves. Really enjoyed fresh local food and wine as we sailed back to Herlaklion after a beautiful swim. Timing was excellent - would recommend the afternoon sailing, and definitely going with these 2 seasoned and friendly sailers.
