    The overall experience was absolutely fantastic. Not only was it such good value for money, the instructors and staff were so friendly and encouraging and felt very at ease even when slightly out of my comfort zone. You are collected from your hotel or close to it and brought to the most beautiful beach to start off the activities. The water is crystal blue which makes the snorkelling so enjoyable as you can see the wildlife surrounding you. While paddle boarding you are able to see the gorgeous coast of Crete.

    Great trip — definitely recommend it!

    This is a really great way to have fun, get some exercise, and visit one of the hidden gems of Crete. Stefanos was the perfect guide/outfitter. Nice surprise to have them to take care of everything from hotel transfer, to shower/changing facilities, and even taking photos with GoPro so we could just have fun. Highly recommend doing this to get out of the overcrowded Chania harbor and enjoy true Crete.

    Empowering and Fun

    Stefano was a great guide and coach! Taught the small group how to paddleboard, and lead us on two-hour fun tour, with great views, clear water, and some fun extras on the way. He was encouraging but not forceful about trying things and made it a great outing. It was fun to try new things and the views were great.
