Captain Nick is Chania's Number 1 boat trip provider. We are a small family run company with one boat 'Aphrodite'. If you don't sail with Captain Nick then you are on the wrong boat! We have been running our trips for over 20 years and we offer boat cruises and snorkel trips for either 1 hour, 2.5 hours, 3.5 hours or private hire. We visit two islands on our trips and on the longer trips Captain Nick takes you on a guided snorkel trip to seek out octopus. Children and adults alike get to 'Captain the ship!

I booked this boat trip because of all the fantastic reviews. We went by rental car to Chania and spent an hour searching for a free parking space! Then we had trouble finding the pier where Captain Nick's boat would leave. There were no signs but many boats and so we where finally shown by another company. Captain Nick's boat was... More

Well, for once in my life I'm almost (but not quite) stuck for words! Your original review very clearly stated that you were on a catamaran (I note you have conveniently deleted this in your new longer updated version but added lots of 'Captain Nick' references). I mailed you and asked you if you were sure you had the right... More

Captain Nick is quite a character. We paid €10 for a 1 hour boat trip. However we were only actually travelling 30 m with the other 30m stopping to view the various fish, octipus Tec though the glass bottom in the boat. At this stage you can also go into the water for a swim, so bring your swimsuits etc.... More

We come to Chania in the last week of Oct and it is obviously the end the season. But thanks to the weather we can even have two days with max to 29C degree and sunshine weather. So boat trip is a must in such a day. The high marked Nick's boat in TripAdvisor lead us to this boat. It... More

We had read that Captain Nick’s 3.5 hour snorkeling tour got great reviews and for good reason. We emailed the night before to confirm that we could still get on the list. We got a response email that was perfect. They confirmed there was space available and then provided the best instructions from our Cruise Ship port to their port.... More

Captain Nick and his staff were more than helpful and very good entertainers. We went on the 3 hour boat trip which we visited 2 Islands. The boat trip was very organized and I would recommend to everyone who visits Chania! Definitely the best!!

My friend and I happened to walk past this boat as we walked around Chania and we were attracted by the glass bottom option. The next trip was leaving shortly so we ran back to our hotel to get changed. Never thought that a 1 hour trip would be worth the bother but I was super impressed. The sights were... More

Captain Nick and his crew work hard to ensure everyone has a good time. We went on the short one hour trip, great value at 10 euro, with drinks on board at 1 euro each. Beautiful views of harbour and island, opportunity to swim from the boat, plenty of fish to see, well recommend.
