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.

We had an amazing day with Nikos on the „Be Happy“ in October 2020. Nikos introduced us to some basic sailing knowledge and even let us take over the wheel for some time. He knows everything there is to know about sailing and the coast of Crete, is a very warm and welcoming host and all in all just a class act! Also, he prepared an amazing lunch for us consisting of delicious homemade, organic meals! We will definitely sail with Nikos again! Thank you again so much for an unforgettable day. So long

If you want a fantastic full day out on a 43ft Gib'sea yacht, sailing around the coast of Crete, you can't get any more perfect than Sail In Chania. Nikos and Alex were the perfect hosts and the most informative instructors, especially when the engine was off and we were in full sail with our son in full control at the helm. You get to be involved in as much or as little as you like including setting the sails. There were two stops for swimming and snorkelling and an absolute feast for lunch on the boat. Every effort was made to accommodate dietary requirements. Greek salad with optional feta and vegan cheese, pasta in basil and oil, traditional Greek Dakos and meatballs with Alex's delicious tomato sauce (we need the recipe) baklava, spinach filo parcels and fresh fruit. A very unique experience. We can't recommend it enough.

This has been one of our highlights of our Crete trip! We went as a couple on a Sunset Sail with Nikos and Alex which has been fantastic. We went out of the bay for Sailing and Nikos taught us some sailing basics before we made a swimming stop ina fantastic bay with some tasty snacks. On our way back to the Marina we were sailing with the moonlight in our back while watching the Sunset. If you are around and looking to do something else and make memories, I can only recommend Nikos and his Sailing experience.

Our choice of an early August “sunset cruise” was perfect. Setting off at 1600 from Souda port gave us an afternoon breeze that filled the sails and saved us from the scorching heat. Plenty of time for a leisurely swim in a quiet cove, then back on board for a tasty—and tastefully presented—salad, snacks and chilled wine. Then it was time to sail back to port. Nikos is both an experienced skipper and a thoughtful host. Having heeded his suggestion for this particular day, we enjoyed not only the promised view of the sun setting before us but also the spectacle of the full moon rising, its reflection shimmering in the water behind us. Great pictures, great memories!

We had an excellent day of sailing with Captain Nikos and son Alex. On the way out of Souda Bay Nikos gave us information on the bay, the boat and sailing in general. They took us to a small inlet for pictures of a little church and some swimming. We sailed some more. With instructions from Nikos, we could all try our hand at steering. We stopped for lunch and some snorkeling in a lovely bay with crystal clear water. Lunch was delicious, consisting of a greek salad, pasta, meatballs with a delicious sauce and bread. On our way back we passed a Venetian fort. All in all a great day of sailing, well worth the effort.
