1. Agios Nikolaos: Motorboat or Speedboat Rental

Rent your own motorboat or RIB boat and discover the picturesque islands and scenic views around Crete. Create your own itinerary and explore islands such as Agioi Pantes or Spinalonga, or the beaches of Agriomantra and Kolokytha. After check-in, set off from the port of Agios Nikolaos on your adventure. Choose a route that interests you and explore lesser-known areas off the coast of Crete. You can sail to the uninhabited island of Agioi Pantes. Spot the former church which is located at the top of the island. You may also see the endangered species of Cretan mountain goats, called “Kri-Kri”. Sail to the beautiful island of Spinalonga located 800 meters off the coast. Admire the views of the 16th-century Venetian fortress, which also served as a leper colony from 1903 to 1957. Make a stop for swimming at Kolokytha, one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete. Hike along the pathway that takes you from the beach to the church of Agios Loukas and the Byzantine chapel of Agios Fokas. You may also choose to sail towards Agriomantra, a beach that is found at the end of Agriomantra’s gorge and is of outstanding natural beauty. Relax beneath the Tamarisk trees which offer natural shade, while there are barbecues and benches to have a picnic on the beach.

We had a wonderful afternoon!!! The handling of the boat was well explained and there were driving exercises, which gave us a good feeling because we were steering the boat alone. The boat was perfect for the 7 of us. Drinks, a shower and WiFi connection for music from your cell phone were included. Attention: You need an iPhone to download the nautical chart app and enough data volume so that you know where you can go and where you can stop. In the end we paid €25 for the used boat diesel/tip. There is a clear recommendation! Do not miss out on this one!

It was an incredible experience. Even without any prior knowledge, we got along really well with the introduction. Very nice contact person on site. With the help of an app you can easily move around on the sea and feel safe. Beautiful places could be reached. The boat was very clean. We immediately felt comfortable. There were enough drinks available. Always my pleasure.

Absolutely, everything was better than we thought, very good value for money, lovely lady on the coach, and very good value at the snack place and of course, the sunset was mesmerising
