Full description

Embark on a cruise from Heraklion to the uninhabited and Natura 2000-protected island of Dia. Enjoy a completely private sailing tour and take in views of the magnificent sunset and coastline. Once on the island, feel free to swim, fish, snorkel, or try out stand-up paddleboarding, before heading back to Heraklion after sunset. Meet your guide and board a luxurious 53-foot sailboat, that boasts a spacious entertainment area, ample cockpit and lounge area, extra freezers and drink fridges, washrooms, and air-conditioning. As you sail towards Dia, learn of the local myths and legends of the island. Hear about how it was created by Zeus, the God of the sky and thunder and ruler of Mont Olympus. Upon reaching the island, take some time to swim in the azure Cretan waters. Alternatively, stay on the boat and enjoy all the amenities it has to offer. Suntan on the massive front deck, and relax on the comfortable, high-quality mattresses.

Enjoy seasonal fresh fruit and soft drinks served by the crew. You may also enjoy a delicious authentic Mediterranean dinner onboard or some luscious and fragrant local wine (optional, may be ordered after booking at an extra cost). Absorb every second of the stunning sunset and the twilight magic as the sun, led by the Greek God Helios riding his golden chariot, dives into the magnificent Aegean Sea. Capture the magic moments forever by snapping incredible photos or videos. Set your mind free and let your romantic summer dreams become a reality. As night falls, cruise back to the old Venetian harbor under the brilliant starlit Cretan sky, feeling at ease, euphoric, and completely rejuvenated.

The trip was amazing, Theodor and his son were very helpful and went beyond in making sure everything was good. The trip was on time and the company representative was there through whatsapp all the time and email The only thing that it was very windy with alot of waves which made swimming difficult and made us sea sick. We were very nauseous on the way to Dia island and on the way back. But highly recommended
