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. As the boat begins the return journey back to Chania, admire the harbor’s glistening lights reflect against the water as evening turns to night.

    A beautiful boat and a short trip from Chania's old Venetian harbour to a mooring just off the old leper island to watch the sun going down while listening to highly evocative music. You can swim in the sea from the boat to get closer to the fish, if you wish and enjoy fresh fruit and raki as the sun disappears behind the headland. Then watch the lights come on in Chania as you cruise back in the dark. What a wonderful way to spend an evening.

    Friendly

    Staff were all friendly, calm and knowledgable. Lovely little boat trip out, quite intimate. Takes you out and you watch the sun set with music playing, they then bring a platter of fruit out (sliced mango, apple and grapes) and some Raki and made a toast while the light disappears. He gave a little talk about some of the local islands and some basic history but it was more about the atmosphere, sunset and the scenery. Lovely little evening. Some lovely restaurants and brilliant atmosphere along the old harbour for afterwards.
