Boat Trip 4.5h Pirate Cruise with transfer & Lunch from Hersonissos

By Eye travel
The Pirate Boat sails at 11 o’clock from the port of Hersonissos to the clear waters of the Cretan sea. After 20 minutes journey we arrive at our destination of San Georges gulf, close to the beach, where we stay for 1.5 hour. The breath taking landscape will take your journey to another level. At our first stop you can enjoy the clear waters for jumping from the boat, swimming, snorkelling or sunbathing and enjoy a nice meal. After 1.30 hour we are heading for the coast of Malia and Stalis for a second stop of swimming. On our way back we sail close to the coast line to see all the action of the water sports of the area. During our journey the pirates will give an experience of a pirate trip with face painting, music and dancing. All the kids will get a pirate diploma at the end of the journey and they can have the chance of driving the boat to make memorable photos. We return to Hersonissos around 15:30. Depending where your stay, you can be collected and returned to your hotel.

          Excellent trip, great day out forwhole family!
          Brilliant trip, we had so much h fun sitting on the back of the jeep and touring through the mountains off road. Our tour guide, Louisa, was excellent - she gave us so much information about the life in Crete, and was cheerful and happy for the whole day. We were also kept informed of any time changes in the run up to the excursion, which was great. Thank you so much to all the team for a great day! Have a good winter!!!

          Louisa was superb. Elle est géniale.
          Louisa is a superb guide, but don't let her have more than one Café or she won't stop. Such a great experience, best way to enjoy the island outwith the tourist nonsense.

          A great day!
          This is an excellent way to see the area around Elounda, Plaka and of course the island which has a long and unique history and is definitely worth visiting. The olive oil tour was very interesting and we learned lots about the harvesting and oil extraction process. Our guide Gijs was outstanding!

          Unforgettable experience!
          This excursion is perfect to know Crete better by actually merging with the everyday life of the people who live inside the island : you’ll visit a cave, discover a cute little town and its town center, taste home-made olive oil and swim in the beautiful beach of Mália. The lunch is integrated inside the excursion price as well as the cars. Moreover, we were lucky to do the excursion with Louise, which is literally the best - guide - ever. Unforgettable memories guaranteed !

          Endurance test - but worth it!
          Where to start!! It needs a warning! This is not a “walk” (don’t think it’s a gentle amble in a Gorge). It’s a trial, it’s hard and the whole day is an endurance. Having said that, it’s an achievement. We were picked up at 04:40, then proceeded 5 hours of pick ups and travel. Once you arrive at the Gorge it’s down hill for several km (which sounds ok, but the pressure on your calf and toes is tough), not a single step is without potential slip or accident, you can’t really look about as every step has to be considered due to rocks, uneven ground, gorge edge). Each stop for photos is as quick as possible, due to time pressures. If you don’t get to boat on time there’s no other way back. Saw 2 injuries dealt with by park rangers sited along the route. We walked steadily and without break for 5-5 1/2 hrs. (We had a hour and a half time grace before boat deadline - well done us!). Boat trip pleasant (good to see other hobblers and not feel like the only non pro hiker ). Back for 4-4 1/2 coach trip home. Stop at same pit stop for a €3 pitta. A tip to organizers - we had upset passengers over coach seating. If you want them to keep their seat for duration of trip - tell them!

          Horrendous experience!
          If I could score a 0 I would its nothing like the reviews say, very rude staff and a total waste of money! The guide said infront of other customers on the same trip who where all Dutch, I will have to speak in English because the English are lazy and don't learn other languages, the food is absolutely unedible! When you complain or voice you issues the owenr Tanya tries saying it's your own fault! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

          Unforgettable Private Crete Tour
          We had the most incredible experience exploring part of Crete with our guide, Louise!! This private tour was everything we expected and more. Louise was knowledgeable, passionate, and fun! She shared with us some of the most popular areas in Crete but also hidden gems, which was exactly what we were searching for. Her recommendations for restaurants, food selections & activities were spot on!!! She made this day feel very personalized to our interests and an adventure we won’t forget! I can’t recommend this tour enough :)

          Amazing experience, Luiza great guide
          The tour is well worth it. The jeep safari is a fun adventure for the whole family (did it with my mom and grandma, and we all loved it). We visited special local places and explored parts of the island that I wouldn’t get the chance to know otherwise. The tour guide Luiza made everything better, with her uplifting energy and clear instructions

          could be better
          My opinion about the excursion is not the best... We spent too much time traveling and the times revealed in the experience did not correspond... It was preferable to forego the visit to Oia and just stay in Phira... We ended up buying a trip to the volcano, they changed buses and our belongings stayed on the other bus, so my swimming trunks were there too... it should be noted that with the trip to the volcano we only had an hour of travel time. visit to Phira who didn't even have time for lunch... We were scheduled to return to Heraklion at 4pm, when the volcano tour ended and the ferry arrived at 5pm, we spent an hour at the port waiting when we could have made the most of our time in Phira... In short, the useful visiting time is too short.

          Stunning views
          Stunning views. It definitely worth to go. In general I liked it, made amazing photos. It was a bit hot downside the george, so it's importnant not to forget to refill the bottle. +Nice nature. There is a beach after walk, where you can swim, if you finish a bit earlier. -Guide perfectly speaks at least 5 languages. -I would prefer if a guide would be with us during the whole walk. Sometimes I felt lost and couldn't enjoy the beautifulness of George. Personally I went to tour, not on my own, because I travelled alone. -We couldn't find the guide after the walk, although we had to take our boat tickets. She came just 10 min before the boat left. -Guide said us we would be able to buy some food when we stopped, but it's only sandwiches. I would take some food with me for the walk. After the walk there are good taverns where you can buy good food.

          Worst tour ever.
          This was worst tour ever. Ship from Crete to Santorini ran late so we got to Santorini late. Spent 1 hour to get to Oia by bus and only had 40 minutes there. Oia is the highlight of the island. Then back on bus to Fira for a very late lunch, only 1hour 10 minutes there then back on bus to the ship. So for an eleven our trip we spent less than 2 hours on Santorini. It should be marketed as a boat trip. A waste of a day and not inexpensive.

          Friendly staff and good experience overall but not much time to be around and about. Recommended if you’ve never been and don’t expect to spend a whole day there.

          Poor customer service!
          DO NOT book this tour! We had the worst possible experience. We were traveling with a large group of people ranging from infants to elderly. After the 24-hour cancellation period lapsed, they sent us and email telling us to meet at a public bus stop 2 and a half hours before the tour started, when they knew we had a far drive to begin with. We called the provided number and explained our situation offering to meet anywhere else at a time closer to the start of the tour. They refused to accommodate us and told us things were already planned. They said I could get a refund by emailing them, when I did this, they refused the refund and got progressively more abusive with and threatening with me. Poor customer service does not even begin to describe my experience.

        Volgens de beschrijving gingen we met een catamaran naar Santorini, echter bleek dit uiteindelijk een piraten boot te zijn die naar omliggende plaatsjes vier.
        Wel een leuke dag gehad maar dus niet naar santorini

        Iedereen kan op Tripadvisor en/of Viator nakijken dat er totaal niet gesproken wordt over Santorini of catamaran. De foto's en beschrijving zijn overduidelijk. Het is inderdaad heel spijtig dat u dit alles helaas misbegrepen heeft.

        Zeer slecht bedrijf. Eigenares begint te schreeuwen als je kritische vragen stelt aan de telefoon. Gooit vervolgens de hoorn erop.
        Eye travel neigt naar oplichting, geeft niet de daadwerkelijke kosten aan via de advertentie. Je betaald €58.25 als “aanbetaling” die je vervolgen kwijt bent en dan die je alsnog de 100% van de kosten te betalen. Bij contact staan ze je niet vriendelijk te woord. Oppassen geblazen dus. Ze hebben excuses en liegen/bedriegen waar je bij staat.
