Owner description: We offer a 1 hour mini-cruise or a 3.5 hour two island cruise in the high season and in the low season 1 hour mini-cruise or a 2 hour two island cruise. All of our trips offer free, good quality, snorkeling equipment both for adults and for children. We believe we offer the best snorkeling, swimming, sun-bathing, and a boat ride all made extremely good fun with the expertise and experience of Captain Nick. Added to all this is the 'glass bottom' feature which we have not been slow in having great fun with. We are the only glass bottom boat in Chania Harbour that offers a 3.5 hour snorkelling cruise in a glass bottom boat.

We first drove a bit and all the kids could play captain. When my daughter 21 months drove we went to a reef and Nick made a joke about her being the worst captain and took over de wheel again. Then he went to dive for some fish, seastars and an octopus and showed it trough the glass. Then my... More

Captain Nick interacts perfectly with kids and gives them the opportunity to be a captain for a while. We also had loads of fun during the trip and even tried the role of the captain ourselves. He speaks english fluently so there is no problem with communication. The boat has a glass bottom so that you can see marine life.

Just got back from our 2 1/2 hour trip to the islands and snorkeling. We had such a great time, nick is very knowledgeable about both the history and the sights of chania. Couldn't recommend it more! He even found starfish, a sea cucumber and an octopus for us to see!

Took the 2.5 hour tour and had a blast with our two small children. Nick makes all of the difference as we works to have a good time with his guests. He retrieved some sea creatures (urchin, star fish, octopus) and we have some great photos with the kids with them. Highly recommended.
