About Sail in... Chania
We depart from the bay of Souda, Chania for a full day of fun sailing, swimming, Cretan cuisine and culture.We sail for at least 30 n.miles with beautiful views of forts, small islands, the White mountains as a backdrop, past seaside villages and you can do all the sailing, if you want to, with myself as the navigator and chef. We anchor in secluded bays for snorkeling in crystal clear, turquoise waters, freshly cooked food and sail back to port with the sun setting in front of us. Twenty years from now you will be disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones that you did do. So throw away the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails! Explore. Dream. Discover! We promise a memory to last a lifetime.
