    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.

    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~

    Very nice experience. After a sailboat trip, we were able to swim in transparent waters rich in fish with a magnificent backdrop that is the nature reserve, the island of Dia. Delicious meals on board and welcoming staff. However the excursion is a bit expensive for just half a day.
