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.

Despite high waves and quite stormy winds, we always felt safe on board. Manos and his team are super friendly and professional. Very nice sunset, there was also a small schnapps. You could also go swimming if you wanted. If I'm ever in Chania again I will definitely book it again!

It was an all round great boat ride. It was very windy that day, so there was a stronger swell, which is why the organizers kept asking us if everything was ok. They were very accommodating and it was a very relaxed atmosphere on the boat. I can only recommend to everyone!

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.
