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 Venetians 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 that 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 or take a short swim, then enjoy a traditional Greek raki. As the boat begins the return journey back to Chania, admire the harbor’s glistening lights reflecting against the water as evening turns to night.

Good value for money and pleasant guides to take you out to a small island where you can watch the sunset over the mountains. The view was lovely and we were generously give raki (a local alcohol) on arrival. The guides even had travel sickness pills to give out to those who got seasick since the waves were rather rocky. Only thing I would mention is we were not offered to get off the boat and swim as is suggested in the description. That being said we definitely enjoyed it.

We booked this sunset cruise for our last night and it was the perfect way to end our holiday in Chania. Manos and his colleague were both charming and informative, the boat very clean and the experience wonderful. The booking process was very easy and we will definitely recommend and use this website again.

Great experience, the 2 people on board are super friendly and welcoming. We were originally supposed to do the crossing on Tuesday but because of the rain, they kindly offered to postpone to another date. I highly recommend, the meeting point is easy to find! Thank you again for this great weather, remember to take your swimsuits because you have 30 min to swim in front of the sunset
