A very cozy boat trip that could have been much better if you introduced an age limit on the boat. The passengers consisted mostly of couples but also 1-2 families with children. The sound of children arguing and being told by their parents did not fit so well with the otherwise romantic view of Rethymnon at sunset.

I can't fault this trio at all. The only thing I would say is to get there early on the day and that way your first on the boat and will get a much better seat. The sunset is stunning and the cruise also takes you into the old harbour which is beautiful at night with all the cafes and restaurants lit up. Highly recommend this trip

Be sure to read your emails after booking: Our departure was brought forward because of the earlier sunset. So it started punctually at 7 p.m. in Rethymnon. If you sit on the left side of the ship, you can see the sunset very nicely. The crew was incredibly nice and the children were allowed to steer the ship at the end. A very successful trip that we can definitely recommend! This event is definitely worth € 17.
