      Nice trip with good food
      Nice trip out to Dia. Did a bit of swimming and snorkelling and someone from my group managed to see an octopus. The food and drinks offered were perfectly nice! Don’t expect a full meal, as it’s mainly nibbles. It was enough food that we came back full. Really nice crew and good atmosphere all around.

      Amazing experience on the boat
      I went on a day boat trip for a stag/bachelor party. We had an amazing time, and it was the highlight of our time here. The crew, including Sofia, Pulina, and Costas, were really lovely, kind and generous. The food was awesome, and the entire experience was so good due to the staff on the boat. Pulina also helped me out when I accidentally hurt my foot while swimming. Thanks for the great experience and I would highly recommend this boat provider to everyone.

      Beautiful cruise for the money!
      The organization, food and staff were excellent. The view was amazing. Perhaps a little more interaction with the staff would have been appreciated, I think that might come with age as most were fairly young and distracted by the cute girls who seemed to be part of the crew.

      Fun day
      Had a great time on this excursion! We met at the cafe and got checked in then headed to the catamaran and had coffee and pastries and began our sail. On the way out we learned some interesting facts and drank white wine and had snacks. Once we arrived to the spot to snorkel, the water was so clear and beautiful. After swimming, we ate an amazing lunch that was prepared on the catamaran and then sailed back. Overall, the staff was great and we had a fun time with the other guests.

      Idyllic boat excursion
      The reason we travel is an experience like this. Sleek, comfortable and well-equipped catamaran, first rate crew who really care about your enjoyment, nice dinner (especially the mussels) and lovely Mirabella Bay coastline. Had quite a bit of difficulty finding the boat, but all was forgiven after the ocean swim and camaraderie among people from such a variety of countries.

      Lovely experience with stunning sunset but do eat beforehand
      Loved this! Absolutely beautiful sunset and stunning boat. The swimming stop was great too, just a gorgeous evening. The right amount of people were onboard too, they didn’t pack people in, it was comfortable. I would just say don’t rely on the snacks, as we were told we could go for a swim and while we were off the boat the food was served and everything was gone, we had one breadstick each 🤣 Not really great for the cost of the activity.

      It was ok
      The boat was ok, it was a bit tired and definitely had too many people on it, felt a bit cramped. There was one lady who was lovely but the rest of the staff seemed like they didn't want to be there. The stop we made was in very deep water with poor visibility so snorkelling was pointless and it was just off a beach that had a motorway over the top of it so that wasn't very appealing. It would have been nicer if there were more stops in nicer places! The food was really good and cooked fresh. I'm glad we went but wouldn't go back

      An Unbelievable Day!
      What a brilliant day!! George the Skipper and Joanna, who prepared the wonderful food, made our day really special. We traveled on this lovely yacht to a tranquil bay where we had loads of time to swim and paddle board. We were then treated to a fantastic lunch with fresh fish and delicious salads and plenty of alcohol! What an unbelievable day, thank you both so much!

      Pleasant
      It took a bit of time to find the catamaran as we did not receive the communication as to the location of the ship. When we arrived the captain asked how’s your day “I said a little frustrating trying to find the ship” his response was very aggressive, rude and shouted that it’s not his fault as he had, had more than enough of complaints over the season on the same issue this was uncalled for and his tone spoilt the start After a few hours my son in-law went to get my wife a wine and he told him he could drink water instead how rude is that !!! Food was fantastic ship clean and tidy plenty of space to sit in the shade or sunbathe Swimming destination was really good crystal clear water.

      10/10 experience for the group
      This was a 10/10 and would highly recommend booking with them. It was 11 of us in a group and holds 20 people so it felt like a private trip. The crew were lovely, very polite and attentive. They had all kinds of things like paddle boards, floaters, snorkelling. Jumping off the boat was so fun and we had enough time to have fun and do whatever we want to do. For the non swimmers who want to go into the ocean they give noodles which I have never seen and many non swimmers were very happy instead of wearing life jackets. The lunch was delicious! And the starters when getting onto the boat was so good! We also forgot our drone batteries and were stressing, when we called in the morning they had found it and left it aside for us to pick up.

      Book it !
      I booked Daneri Yachts for my husbands birthday . The Crew was great, welcoming, funny, and laid back , (I have had a bad experience in the past in France) however this was such a big difference and we actually really enjoyed our time . I loved that the trip left at 9:30 and we were back around 2:30 it gave us still so much time to use our day . What I love about this cruise was that your not just getting the sailing but they welcomed us with freshly cut cheeses, dips, and crackers . While they let us off the boat to swim they prepared a whole hot lunch . I was shocked when i saw them taking out fresh fish from the oven . They had two different salads and some other sides . But I was overall thankful the for the homecooked fresh meal . They also ended it with desserts and fresh cut fruit . it was just overall a pleasant experience . I highly recommend booking this .

      Perfect day out
      After looking for a boat trip to do on our recent holiday to Crete, we stumbled across this one. We liked the fact that it was a small boat which meant only a small group of people. This trip did not disappoint, from the moment we arrived at the harbour meeting point to when we disembarked. We had briefings from the captain and a wonderful, freshly cooked meal by the chef. The crew were so friendly. The only downside was the weather was quite windy so as a precaution we weren't allowed the SUP for obvious reasons, however this did not detract from a wonderful day at sea. Would highly recommend

      Decent, but far less than the money you pay for
      There was no interaction between staff and clients, apart from safety rules and call for lunch. No info about where we go, where we stay, island of Crete. Nothing. The crew allowed a group of people to take control on the music o the boat, allowing them to play their own music loud, on their sound buffer. Music they only liked and can’t be that any clue t can play their own music.

    I’ve been on a number of these cruises, but by far this was THE BEST ONE! 6 hour cruise; Fantastic crew, safety first, fun second, delicious homemade food third. Captain Yanis, Jorgos, & Marina attended to our every need. They sang for us, joked around, we all laughed so hard. Great cooks too. We learned a few Greek folk dances, snorkled, swam, paddle board, dove, floated, all in a gorgeous setting. The best Greek hospitality. Highly recommend them. Book it if you can.

    We are a couple and went with another French couple and a Portuguese family on this trip. Which we didn’t know before but got to know these people, and hope we will see them
    again in the future. We absolutely had a great day. If you are looking for not to spend the entire day at a boat but still a full day we really recommend going with them. The catamaran is very big so everybody has plenty enough of space and the people, especially Giannis and the skipper were very nice. They can cook really good and they have so much to tell about the Island you go to. You can have a really nice swim and though my Girlfriend can’t really swim and is scared of the sea she also had a perfect day.

    Definitely worth the money😊
    Thank you again for everything

    Our trip exceeded our expectations in absolutely every way. A cruise up the Cretan coastline from Rethymnon, then some snorkelling and diving in the open water, followed by sailing back in the incredible golden sunset. The guys know exactly how to create a chilled and fun vibe, and we all a day that we’ll probably never forget. Sincere thanks from the four of us.

    Worth the money yes. Super crew lovely cat. Sailing across to the island and bay was delightful. The bay we moored in was just beautiful. Lunch and breakfast provided. Bay was super to swim in would recommend. Only advice would be to owners provide beer. Only wine is not a good option. The German people travelling like myself were disappointed.
    Otherwise a lovely end to a lovely holiday. The Cretans are super people.
    Have done a number of catamaran trips around the world and this was good value.
    I hope you have a busy summer in these strange times

    What a fun packed stress free day, nothing was too much trouble George was the most attentive and helpful captain and Alexandra served the most delicious lunch . There was paddle boarding, snorkeling , inflatables, fishing and plenty of room to just chill and take in the view of the bay and catch the sun . I would definitely return again and recommend George and Alexandra .I was with the Hayes party of 8 . Thankyou .

    After a phenomenal catamaran experience in Santorini a few years ago we decided to try another during our stay in Crete this past summer. Although similar this experience was truly unique as the boat was a little smaller and we enjoyed the day with another family who were fun and great company. The voyage from Heraklion to Dia and back was very pleasant with great views of the island that cannot be experienced any other way. The time we spent at Dia was incredible with some of the truly bluest (if that is a word) water we have seen that was ideal for those that took full opportunity to swim and explore. The crew were very professional, hospitable, fun and made every effort to ensure we were safe and comfortable at all times and the lunch was served fresh and really hit the spot. When we return to Crete we will definitely consider another voyage.

    Last summer we had our vacation on Crete. This island has some magic power that brings you back here again and again:) as usually we bought boat tour to Dia island. We love sailing. This time we chose travelling on catamaran Daneri. It was the best experience we had ever had! Delicious lunch with fruity white wine was served on board. This sea excursion was fulfilled with relax and harmony, we did some sea activities such as snorkelling and sup paddling. My family and I highly recommend this cruise to everyone. Great memories are guaranteed

    I went with my family of 4 (two teenage daughters) on this sailing adventure and had the best time! It was around 6.5 hours of pure paradise... great hospitality from the crew and amazing food. I am so glad we decided to book this boat instead of doing a sailing trip through our hotel. It was about half the price and probably a lot better than the hotel would've been.

    What a fantastic experience, we went on the day trip to Dia on the catamaran with George and Alexandra and they were brilliant hosts, being both welcoming and keeping us laughing the whole time.
    The food was fantastic, clear plates all around.
    We will certainly be returning again, if you are in Herakleion you have to try this at least once!

    We had such an amazing experience on this catamaran trip! George and Joanna made our day trip so unique. This tour exceeded our expectations with the food, wine, and and overall experience. We were taken to the most idyllic spot near the coast where we were allowed to swim and enjoy each other's company. George and Joanna were both attentive and interactive. We couldn't have asked for a better crew. You must try this tour if given the chance!
