Full description
The tour departs from Hersonissos port in the morning and then sets sail towards Virgin Mary’s bay. Upon arrival at the bay, cool off from the hot Cretan weather and enjoy some free time to swim and snorkel around the crystal clear, turquoise water. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from your swim, enjoy a barbecue with your fellow travelers and soak up the sunshine while you eat.

After your barbecue at the bay, the boat sails to Agriela bay for more swimming and snorkeling in the sea, there’s also the option to enjoy some fishing.

Next it’s time to visit Dia island, an uninhabited location that is one of the region’s most protected areas for nature and wildlife. Learn about the island’s native flora and fauna and its low dispersal within the Southern Aegean. On the sail back to Hersonissos, admire the stunning views of the Cretan coastline and relax on board the boat after your day of exploration.
