A unique experience that doesn’t come by often and one we always wish to share with our clients. This sail is for adults only and is definitely one of our favourite. Night sailing is mysterious and magical and such a different way to explore the sea and our surroundings. The waters are calmer and as the rest of the boats return we begin!
After the pick-up from your accommodation we meet at the Old Venetian port. We welcome you on board and start with a briefing about safety and boat handling. The sails are set and we are off to our destination, Dia island.
Dia is an uninhabited island, 7 nautical miles north and belongs to the Natura 2000 project because of its biodiversity. The trip lasts almost one hour, during which you can enjoy the silence, the beautiful sunset, the calmness and romance of the sea as we move away from the hustle of the city or you can participate in the sailing process with our skilled skipper.
We set our 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 have green, crystal water surrounded by the protected wildlife, like the cretan eagle and wild rabbit. Our team will tell you everything about the history and the myths of the island!
For about one hour and a half, you will enjoy your time as you wish. Swimming, snorkelling, relaxing and making friends on board. In the meantime, our staff will be preparing a delicious dinner made of local and fresh ingredients that will be paired with some refreshing Prosecco wine. In the background, relaxing music will be accompany us during this unique experience. We know it feels like paradise so sit back and take in the night sail! Just right when the sun is setting a secret cocktail will complement this fulfilling journey.
As we set our sails back to the Venetian port, enjoy the trip back with just the moonlight, the star gazing, the warmth of the voices of your fellow adventurers and the city lights as we approach. An experience that you will always carry with you in your heart!
