Snorkeling and Boat trip in Crete
38 reviews
Snorkeling is very relaxing and at the same time a very exciting activity which is suitable for all ages. Join us in a daily (morning or afternoon) guided “snorkeling” trip, take the mask, fins, snorkel and shorty wet suit from us, board on our 10 meters shady rib boat and take the chance to relax watching the marine life of our island. <br><br>We visit always two different spots with a lot of marine life, such as caves and an open water area always depends on the weather conditions

We met some other vacationers who had visit this site the day before and highly recommended a visit. Off the beaten path and didn't have it on our list of stops but took a chance and were glad we did. The theater was well preserved and not inside the entrance but off to the

Very interesting experience, with small admission fee. There was ample parking and all areas of the site were readily accessible.
