There's nothing quite as wonderful as being out on the water in Greece...and this was the ideal way to do it in Chania. We took out the Cigala Bertinetti with Elize and you could see that she truly loves what she does! Great spots for snorkeling and we learned loads about the history of Crete as well as the marine...

We were fortunate enough to come across the SeaStar cruise departing from Platanias. For 15 euros each we were taken to Theodorou Island (A Greek National Park protected... More

We booked a full day tour to Gramvousa a couple of weeks before we left for holiday to Creete. When we came to Chania we had bad weather for most of our 1 week holiday. It was heavy wind and high waves. We were in contact with a person from SeaStar Boats several times and rebooked the time to travel... More

To begin with we completed their online booking application and was told that a member of the team would be contact via email within 48 hours. This never happened. So we visited their stand in Platanias to book on the off-chance they had availability. They were very friendly and charming, but advised that we booked a trip on the Monday... More

Treated the family to a 2 hour private trip around Aghios Theodori.. Fantastic for spotting Kri Kri goats and Eleanoras Falcon.. Once on the other side of the island a guided snorkelling dive to see the fascinating sealife and then on to the WW2 German Juncker wreck... Really knowledgeable and friendly Captain and Diver... A really memorable treat..

Hello Iulia G, I am afraid you didn't get the right boat. We are located in Platanias and Chania, Crete and not Paphos. Our speciality is guided tours on board and at sea for our guests to discover marine species while snorkelling. We do not propose dancing, singing or games on board. We are sorry you had a bad experience... More
