Full description
The Black Rose sails daily from the Port of Hersonissos through the clear waters of the Cretan Sea. The first stop on this 5-hour trip is St. Georges Bay. You’ll have around 2 hours to swim and snorkel and explore the area. By the time you’re back on the boat, the pirate crew will have prepared a delicious BBQ meal for you to enjoy. Next you’ll set sail for Sissi, Malia and Stalis. During the trip, the boat is likely to be accompanied by dolphins and sea turtles. Stop at the Gulf of Stalis for another chance to swim. Enjoy a refreshing glass of fruit juice before returning to Hersonissos.

A great moment super fun for family or friends! What a sensation to take to the sea, hair to the winds; to dive from the boat, swim while the barbecue is preparing (good quality meal / meat, good surprise); go back to the sea then make a beach ... Then take the sea again and always on a hyper toned music. Everyone dances. And what a nice crew. We want more! Certainly an atypical day that will remain in our memories.

Great trip for a day!

From the booking to the return in the hotel everything worked out perfectly. The ship is really fun. The crew is really trying and the whole thing is well done. The highlight is the bay for swimming from the boat. The BBQ was really delicious. Prices are human and drinks ice-cold. The only thing: the music is very loud at the beginning. After that we went again. Belongs to it and is worth it to try it out. The pick up and the return transport was great. Children should only sit under the sail because the sun really bangs in the summer. But worth a visit.

Das Boot ist mit Verspätung um 12 Uhr abgelegt und ein Stück die Küste entlang und dann wieder umgedreht zurück zur St.Georgs Bucht. Dort haben wir gehalten und geschnorchelt. Wir konnten wirklich viele Fische sehen. Es ist eine schöne Stelle. Dann zurück an Bord gab es einen Mittagssnack, einfach gehalten aber gut. Dann fuhren wir weiter nach Malia, wo ein netter Sandstrand ist. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt geht es wieder zurück in den Heimathafen, auf dem Weg dorthin bekamen wir noch ein Stück Melone. Die Musik an Bord hat Laune gemacht, etwas wie ein Party Schiff und die Crew macht Spaß und Blödsinn mit den Gästen, das war sehr lustig. Hätte mir noch einen Stop mehr gewünscht dann wäre es perfekt gewesen. 1 Stern Abzug gibt es wegen Verspätung und weil es nur 2 Stops waren, aus der Beschreibung geht das nicht eindeutig hervor. Diesen Ausflug macht man für einen kurzen Schnorchel Trip, Spaß und für Sonnenbaden, landschaftlich oder kulturell darf man hier nichts erwarten
