About Captain Nick - Chania's No.1 Boat Trips
Welcome to the Captain Nick experience, No.1 boat trip in Chania. He is the only owner Captain in the harbor - the perfect condition of his boat, his safety record, knowledge and experience of the waters around Chania are unsurpassed. Captain Nick deeply cares about the environment he works in and is well known as Chania’s octopus expert. He has an unmatched ability to seek out octopus and other sea life. Your time and enjoyment are what drive him – with a passion and enthusiasm for the sea that’s contagious! With 22 years experience in Chania harbor, you really couldn’t be in safer hands. We offer 1 hour, 2.5 hour (low season) or 3.5 hour trips and private tours. The maximum we like to take is around 36 (depending on the children to adult ratio) which allows us to give a personal service and to take care of individual needs. Please book your trip as well in advance as possible to ensure your place.

It's our first visit to Chania, and our decision to have a boat trip was quite spontaneous. We took 1h trip, as we were absolutely unprepared (I mean no bathing suits, etc.). However, the trip turned out to be full of impressions! Captain Nick extremely...More

Captain Nick's boat sits with all the other companies in the port in front of all the restaurants. You buy your tickets there. Email Captain Nick he will get back to you. Captain Nick is great with kids. Have fun.
