My family (middle-aged couple, two college-age kids) was delighted with our day on the Cigala Benvinetti. The boat itself is powerful, fast, and well-appointed. Guide Liza was terrific, from her astute snorkeling pointers to her knowledgeable explanations of seafloor and ancient ruins alike. Not cheap, but given the intensity and diversity of delights it was well worth it.

All was perfect We made a family day trip and it was great. We were two families with 4 children from 4 to 10 years and the children enjoy a lot the trip and snorkeling. Freddy who took care of us was great and made the day very pleasant and enjoyable. The boat was perfect. Thanks again Freddy😉

We spent the full day cruising the stunning waters of Western Crete. The guide, Freddy, was incredibly interesting, very kind and made our day unforgettable... Especially when he caught an octopus and taught us how to act and play with it. A tasty, fresh lunch with Cretian specialities was provided. We highly recommand this tour!

We hired cigala-benvinetti speed boat for half a day with Top skipper Adonis and amazing guide Liza. The experience exceeded our expectations from the start. The quality of the boat was superb. Liza is so knowledgeable about everything from local history to marine biology. We are not all seasoned snorkelers and Liza took the time to explain everything with top... More

It was one of the best tours I had so far! The staff is super friendly and they create a nice relaxing atmosphere. If you love the speed one thing is sure: you won't be disappointed!!

My brother and I did the 1hour snorkelling tour and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. There is no better way of enjoying the beauty of Crete than by doing a tour like this one. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The area explored was great and the info given was very interesting! Simply a MUST if you're in Chania!

Best day of our holiday so far. Skipper Adonis skimmed the waves like an albatross, bliss! and host Freddie is a legend. Polymath and extreme sports guru - he was history teacher, survivalist - just try the thyme therapy on Gramvousa, an indomitable spirit, thank you.

We had a great family day on the boat with Freddy touring Theodurou Island. He could not have been better with the kids. It was great, highly recommended.

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...

Family of 7 people (all adults) went on the 'Cigala Bertinetti' yacht for a 4 hour trip around Theodurou Island from Chania harbour. Liza was our guide for the day, excellent host and very informative about the history of the area and answered any questions we had. Adonis was the captain and was also very welcoming. Fantastic trip with 3... More
