The swimming, paddle board and snorkeling was great. The ride to the sight was not for the faint of heart. The speed was fast and I pitied the fool going slow when we wanted to pass. That said, the experience was excellent. Also, if you are a poor swimmer or need lots of hand holding this might not be the trip for you. (Swimming aids were in short supply) For my wife and I the trip was great.

Nice sailing trip, sweet and pleasant guide. Was picked up by car from Chania, without extra payment. Snorkeling felt safe, although no more amazing underwater views than on the beach by the hotel. Standup paddling is fun if you, like me, have never tried it before. Safe in a bathing bay with a sandy bottom and clear water, but probably not particularly exciting for experienced paddlers.
