    We spent 6.5 hours with a great captain and visited Sweet, Marmara, and Loutro beaches. I could not have asked for a more accommodating crew! We booked the night before but might have been easier at the port the day of the trip. We didn’t have to wait long doe a ride on each leg and took some amazing pictures. Highly recommend. The drive there from Chania took a while (1.5 hours) but also beautiful and worth the trip.

    RIB Rental in Chania with or without Skipper

    Nikos gave us a great day. Beautiful water, Balos was breathtaking and we enjoyed hearing about many of the islands and land around western Crete. We took our time coming back and were able to swim in hidden beaches and explore a wreck and some caves. Wonderful day!

    Sail in Chania with 43ft Dufour Gib'Sea for 8 People

    I can't recommend Nikos highly enough! Me and my friend had a private sailing with Nikos and alex, they promised a memorable experience and it they delivered it beyond more than we expected! We had a great homemade lunch too which was actually a bonus, plus some wine and cherries as snack. Nikos truly loves his job and we will make sure to book another sailing with them when we return in Chania. He is very easy to talk to and we felts really comfortable given the fact the me and my friend are both young adult women, we didn't feel any issues at all! Thank you Nikos for the wonderful experience and we wish you and Alex all the success and happiness you deserve!!

    Huge boat for the price. Best day of the holiday, probably best day of the year. Kids (and my wife) had fun making a tiktok on the sun deck. We had a cruise from 3.00 til 9.00 which was perfect for teenagers and enjoyed the sunset after the crowds had gone home.
