I have had a wonderful time during the trip, very relaxed and enjoyable. More important to mention is that the skipper Monos and his assistant John are so responsible and friendly, which gave me so much extra pleasure besides the leisure trip itself. It is a 4.5h trip only but the nice memory will for sure last forever in the life. So, definitely I will recommend my friends to take this trip if they visit Crete. Cheers~
Charter a sailing vessel privately and escape to the seas. From Heraklion, sail to unique and beautiful Dia Island, where you will have plenty of free time to swim, fish, and snorkel. Several hours later, continue on to another bay, where you will swim in crystal blue waters or take some time to relax in the shade. If you're lucky, you might even spot some dolphins and sea turtles. Relax and spend the day enjoying life while setting sail on the Sea of Crete.
Marco and Marina were fabulous. We had an awesome time on the water, fishing, snorkeling, and just chatting. Would recommend!

You have to have made this sailing trip. Not only is the view, the bay of the island of Dia beautiful and the water crystal clear and light blue, but also Manos and John were perfect! super nice and funny. We took care of every request. The food was great.
This is a must do if you’re staying in Heraklion. Dia island is perfection and the water is pristine. Snorkelling and swimming were great. The hosts were absolutely lovely and very accommodating.
