Summer is all about the sea and sun and on these holidays make sure you make the most of it! An early rise to avoid the extra hot temperatures and spend most of your day sailing will definitely reward you on every level. Unique experiences are made with unique destinations!

We make sure to pick you up from your accommodation and meet at the Old Venetian port of Heraklion to start our half day trip. As we welcome you on board, you will be given a briefing about safety and boat handling. And let’s set sails to our destination, the beautiful Dia island.

Dia is an uninhabited island, 7 nautical miles north of Heraklion and is protected by the Natura 2000 project because of its biodiversity. Our trip there lasts almost one hour, during which you can enjoy the beauty of the sea, the silence and calmness and get informed on eco sailing and marine life around Crete or participate in the sailing activities with our skilled skipper!

We set anchor on either Agios Georgios or Panagia bay (depending on the weather conditions), which are located on the south part of the island. Both coves are known for their green, crystal waters surrounded by the protected wildlife, like the medium sized Falco Eleonorae” the lizard Podarcis erchardii schiebeli, the wild goat Capra Aegagrus Cretica, an important rabbit population which belongs to the endemic subspecies Oryctolagus cuniculus cnossicus and the monkseal Monachus monachus.

Ask our team on everything you want to know about the history and the myths of this island!

For about one hour and a half, you will enjoy these beautiful water with swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing or socialising with your fellow adventurers! Cool refreshments and seasonal fruit will accompany the fun!

And if you are already feeling hungry after a full morning our skipper and host has prepared for you  a warm lunch on spot, made exclusively from fresh and local ingredients!

After your lunch and perhaps after a quick dive, we will set our sails again to return back to Heraklion Venetian port. Have your cameras ready in case we spot some of our lovely mammal friends, the dolphins.
