Overview

How about a Summer morning escape with your private yacht? An early rise to avoid the extra hot temperatures and to spend most of your day sailing will definitely reward you on every level. Unique experience created only for you to a unique destination!

After the pick-up we gather at the Old Venetian port. Our staff welcomes you on board, where you will be given a briefing about safety and boat handling. We set our sails and we are off to our destination, Dia island.

Dia is an uninhabited island, 7 nautical miles north of Heraklion and belongs to Natura 2000 project because of its biodiversity. Our trip lasts almost one hour, during which you can enjoy the silence, the sun and the blue surroundings, or you can just participate in sailing with our skilled skipper.

First stop is Agrilia Bay, one of the remote beaches of the island where we can avoid the crowds. As we approach you can smell the wild oregano from aboard! You have the chance to enjoy your first swim, snorkel or relax with a cool refreshment  and fresh fruit for about an hour.

For about one hour and a half, you will enjoy these beautiful water with swimming, snorkelling, 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, we have plenty of time to take in this magnificent scenery and relax on board. We will set our sails again to return back to Heraklion Venetian port at around 15.30. Have your cameras ready in case we spot some of our lovely mammal friends, the dolphins.

This cruise is just for you and your friends or family to enjoy privacy and the beauty that surrounds you with your loved ones!
