Full description
The boat departs from the Old Venetian Harbor and heads out onto the Gulf of Chania. Pass by the island’s famous lighthouse, which was built by the Venetian’s in the 16th century and later modified by the Egyptians in 1839. The boat continues to sail west towards Lazaretta Island, a small island close to Chania which provides the best views of the sunset across the Kissamos Mountains. The island has a vast history which predates the Venetian occupation. Listen to your guide share lively commentary about the history of the island and its former inhabitants as you watch the sunset and the sky change color. Relax on deck as you marvel at the sunset against the Kissamos Mountains, then enjoy some refreshing fruits and traditional Greek raki.

Die Abendfahrt war echt den Preis wert: Aus dem Hafen raus, an eine kleine Insel, dort im Wasser fest gemacht (auch andere Boote waren da). Bei Sonnenuntergang gab es das Angebot vom Boot ins klare warme Wasser zu springen (außer mir hat sich niemand getraut) - man hätte zur kleinen Insel schwimmen können. Danach gabs ein Schnäpschen und Frucht, dazu ein kurzer Input zur Insel. Als Abschluss wurde im Hafen eine Runde an den Cafes vorbei gedreht. Schöne Fotos gemacht und ein tolles kleines Erlebnis gehabt.

On our preferred date, we were called 50 minutes before departure with the message that the tour could not take place due to choppy seas. We were put off until the next day, when the weather was great, the tour was beautiful, and so was the ship. The captain and his company were very nice, they gave us interesting information. Worthwhile all round
