Best choice for a boat trip in Chania

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... read 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.

Have done a few boat trips but I have to say this was by far the best. From the welcome at the start of the trip to the end it was a pleasure. Nick does everything to ensure you have an amazing experience,, doesn't promise you things that he can't deliver,, I like honesty but he delivered for us,, we... More

There were three glass bottom boats in Chania harbour offering similar trips but we went with captain nick because of the trip advisor reviews. We spoke to one of his English speaking staff first which really set our minds at ease. We took the he three hour trip which was about 45 euros for two people. We were encouraged to... More

Just arrived back from an afternoon with Captain Nick and can't recommend it enough, from booking it on the quayside to returning back everything was great and we really enjoyed the trip even though the sea was a bit rough. We were given the option of making a shorter trip if we wanted but we all choose to go for... More
