June 2019. We had such a lovely time on an overnight trip to Dia, with our great skipper George and wonderful hostess Irini! The sailing was excellent, on a windy, warm day, which was exhilarating. They were flexible to our needs and so capable. We swam in the blue waters and explored the island. The food was delicious! Thank you so much for an amazing trip and beautiful memories!
  •   A couple of the best trips I've ever had traveling. I sailed with Nikos on two different occasions. Great captain, who makes sure you're safe, but also makes sure you see things and gives you opportunities to swim relax or whatever. We did a little...More

      We are just back from the boat excursion from Heraklion to a nearby island called Dia. It was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing experiences in my life. There were nine of us including three boys 5 to 12. The boys just loved it....More

  •   Perfect boattrip, the bus driver to the harbour was really kind and knew a lot about the island, good conversations. The people on the boat knew what they were doing and understood what the trip should be about. Just relaxing and enjoying the view. Food...More


      Two girl friends and I did an afternoon sail to Dia island on our last day in Crete. We didn’t know what to expect but from the moment we got on the boat it had exceeded anything we could have imagined. Nikos and Emma were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they do and it showed. From mythological stories to letting us know about technical sailing aspects - Nikos was always happy to answer any questions and then some!
    And the actually trip itself - I still don’t know how to describe it. The journey to Dia and back was beautiful, the water a deep blue until we dropped anchor to swim - where it was then crystal clear and calm. My friends and I even swam to the island shore and back before we were served our delicious dinner (with wine!) on the front of the ship in the warm evening sun.

    There was absolutely nothing I would change, everything was perfect. Thank you Nikos & Emma for such a memorable experience - it was the highlight of my trip.


  •   We were at a Full Day Sailingtrip with Captain Jannis yesterday. We enjoyed this Day totaly. The Crew of the Boat „Barbarossa“ was an excellent Team and gave us some Information about the Island Dia and about Crete. We sail to a bay at Dia Island and we swim in a crystal clear Ocean. Then we had a Lunch cooked by the Crew. Regional Food, it was awesome and it tastes really good. After the lunch we ship to an other bay and there we can swim again. After 2 Hours in this Bay we sail back to Heraklion. It was a very special day for us and we will come Back again. Many Thanks to the Crew from the Barbarossa! Special Greets from Cologne Germany!!

      Absolutely wonderful day! Nika and his crew-mate (whose name I have forgotten, sorry!) were both lovely, the food was great and the boat was very comfortable. Extremely relaxing and interesting trip, I can't recommend it enough!

  •   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.


      enjoyed the sailing. Thanks for the good tips from the places where we could go We have visited them all and finised the day with eating rabbit
