Full description

Embark on a multi-stop cruise from Heraklion to St. Georges Bay, Sissi, Stalis, and more. Hop on board the Black Rose pirate boat and enjoy a pirate-themed experience with face painting, music, dancing, and a BBQ meal.

The Black Rose sails daily from the Port of Hersonissos through the clear waters of the Cretan Sea. The first stop on the trip is St. Georges Bay. You’ll have around 2 hours to swim and snorkel and explore the area.

The tour was very nice and the crew spread a good mood! :) After the first swim stop there was something to eat+1 drink. Later there was another piece of melon. At the beginning of the tour, photos were taken with the pirates, which could have been bought later for €15. It would have been nice if that was still in the description, because unfortunately we didn't have enough money with us and couldn't buy the photos. :-( The tour was "only" 4 hours and not 5 hours as described. All in all a very nice experience. It's worth it!

This experience was fabulous! We had the best day and so much fun!! The crew were amazing! Hardworking and friendly playing with the kids and adults and generally entertaining everyone. The music was brilliant and captain was really funny, drinks well priced and a decent lunch with a drink included. Two stops for swimming, pool noodle ‘sword’ fights, face painting and the kids got to drive the ship. We saw some lovely sights along the coast and fed the fish. I cannot recommend this trip enough for only about £40 we loved it!

Was a great boat trip, but took 4 instead of 5 hours as described. Also only 1 stop and "only" along the coast. The caves could be seen from afar, at the stop you could swim there. Show was ok but not more than a little dancing. Initially pirate music, then party music. But kids had a lot of fun.
