We did a half-day private tour of Dias Island with Sailingtrips.gr. I have to say that it was probably our most favorite activity our family did while visiting Greece. Our skipper (also the owner of the company) and his first mate were absolutely stupendous. My kids went from being nervous to be on the boat to actually feeling confident enough to help the captain steer. The atmosphere was great, the boat was outrageously amazing (and so clean!) and the food was delicious. We had the most incredible time and it will be a memory that stays with all of us for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for taking care of us and making this trip such an amazing adventure. Can't wait to do it again on our next vacation to Crete!

We had a fantastic half-day trip with Captain Manos & crew! Dia island is wonderful, we had a fun time sailing on a morning with a strong wind, the lunch on the boat was tasty and plentiful, there was a good variety of soft drinks and wine and of course water. Manos and the other crew member (whose name I unfortunately forgot) were friendly, easy-going and very accommodating, plus the playlist on the boat was great. Manos even lent my friend his own fleece jacket when she got too cold from the spray and wind on the way to the island.

Since we needed to take a quick Covid test before embarking, we got that done easily enough at Cafe Marina at the port, the cost was 10€ per person.

Our cruise ship landed in Crete at noon and we were to meet them at our dock at 100. We got off board at 1245 and they were waiting for us in an AC Van. Took us to the sailboat dock which was about 3 minutes away. The crew was there and ready to go.
Everyone we dealt with was very friendly and courteous. We then sailed to Dia Island which was about an hour out. The island is nicer in person than it is in the pictures. We swam in the crystal blue water, then hiked and explored on the island, and then went snorkeling for an hour. During one of our breaks they served us a very fresh and tasty lunch with a great Greek wine. The snorkeling was very nice and they also provided fishing gear but our kids were more intrigued with seeing them snorkeling. We were on a 14 day cruise with 12 stops and this was one of the best excursions.

This is such an easy 5 star recommendation - the company was on time, courteous and the skipper and first mate was great. And the sailing and scenery cant be beat.

Not cheap. But awesome.
Would like to hear some of the stories about the island like some of the others further down in the comment section below. Crew seems really tired. Understandable tho! They do a hard and great job

This was a truly fantastic experience that my wife and I enjoyed thoroughly! First, we appreciated all the communication before the day of our trip, with all the practical information regarding the trip, which made the preparations and planning simple and easy.

The trip itself is awesome in all respects and definitely something one should do if they visit the area of Heraklio. The sailing experience is exciting, the water at Dia is marvelous, the meal is delicious, and the staff is amazing! Our captain and co-captain were Markos and Magda and they were the perfect combination of knowledge, competence, and efficiency along with superb Greek warmth, hospitality, and kindness!

This trip was a wonderful memory from our trip to Crete and we highly recommend it!

Vasilis and Denis, made our dream boat trip come true! Perfect boat and facilities, optimal service and very accomodating for what ever wish we may have concerning stops for snorkeling. We would love another trip like this and can highly recommend both the half and full day trip with this company.

Great trip to DIA Island with Vasilly and Crew. Sailed, snorkeled, and had a wonderful snack of local meats, cheeses, and dips with champagne. Beautiful day. Great experience.
