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.

Captain Nick's glass bottom boat is a must when in Chania. Had a really good time on the 1 hour boat ride. Captain Nick is extremely funny, friendly, and he truly loves his job! I highly recommend this boat trip.

Good fun and great photo opportunities of the town. The water was chilly in April but we were glad we got in :)

I went on this boat trip with some friends after reading several reviews and we were not disappointed. We went on the 2 hour boat trip which took us to see some goats on an island, remains of a World War II German plane and included a stop for snorkelling. When we stopped for snorkelling, Nick got in the water... More

Thank you Bex for a really great review. I am a little puzzled though as the 2 hour cruise costs 15 Euro and not 20 Euro. Could you please contact us as we would need a) to refund you the difference, and b) investigate how you came to pay 20 Euro, as we don't use agents and we have no-one... More

Chania Crete, Greece I spent two weeks on Crete in Chania. The best days I had on the island were the days I went on the Captain Nick’s glass bottom boat, the Aphrodite. This was a most excellent adventure. The boat is big allowing for 15 to 20 passengers and looks to be in perfect working condition. There were comfortable... More

We went snorkelling with Nick, he is very nice and cares that you have a good experience! The tour was only 10€ and lasted for an hour, the snorkelling was good although it is not the Great Barrier Reef and it was first in the season. Good time nice thing to do!

Captain Nick is very friendly and speaks good english. The views from the boat are breath taking and he stops by a little island where you can swim or snorkel if you want. He swims himself and finds you things to look at from the sea, on our tour it was a baby octobus! An hour trip only costs €10... More

This is a definite must, getting outside the harbour and seeing the surrounding Mediterranean is worth it in itself. However captain Nick also offers scuba diving off the boat and catches octopus and starfish for observation (all humanely returned to the sea after inspection). He is also a mine of useful information about the surrounding area. All in all throughly... More

Thank you so much for the lovely review Oliver. I would like to point out however, so there is no confusion for our other customers, we do not do scuba diving only snorkelling. We supply the flippers, face mask and breathing tube and training if anyone needs it. It is my understanding that scuba diving is when you have the... More

If you are looking for an incredible, inexpensive way to spend time in an unforgettable activity, this is the one to do in Chania! Captain Nick has over 17 years of leading fantastic coastal tours of the Chania area and is the most genuine, informative, and fun gentleman we met in Chania! For the price NO OTHER TOUR in Chania...

Capt Nick's Boat is amazing! Great way to check out the Mediterranean Sea. He took us out to one of the small island nearby with a beach on it. During the ride, he allowed us to steer the boat and on the way there, he supplied everyone that wanted to swim with snorkeling gear. Capt Nick was able to show... More
