A daily trip to Chrissi island by Christina boat is an unforgettable -must do- experience! We travelled to Ierapetra at early September & Chrissi (also known as Donkey island)was in our bucket list. We’ve booked our tickets with Christina traditional boat. The stuff is very friendly & helpful, the lunch (yes there was also a Greek lunch!) was delicious! We had a unique, secure & very pleasant day! We highly recommend a trip with Christina boat, especially at September.. Locals said it s the best season to visit.

Today me and my girlfriend were together on epic adventure on Chrissi island with CHRISTINA boat. This tour was definetly worth it. The boarding time was to 11.30AM so you don't have to wake early after night at bar. When the sail starts we met that young handsome man who works on the boat and he takes some nice photos of me and my girlfriend, other boat crew was also nice and always smiling. When arrive at first stop we swam like 50m to the beach ( you have to swim to the island because for boats it's forbidden to stop on the beach) but it doesn't matter we know it before and we were ready and it makes this cruise much better adventure! We definetly recommend you to take shoes to water and glasses&snorkel so you can watch many beutiful fishes on the way tk the beach whole swimming or if you are as us you can snorkeling around all the time :D. Shoes to the water aren't necessarily but the sand is really hot on the island so I would recommend to take them. On the island there the most beutiful flora that you couldn't see anywhere on the island and the mussels you can found every in the sea or on the beach are amazing souvenir (but be careful, some mussels are habitat for small crustaceans, so ones which are inhabited must be left in the sea, trust me you will find many empty that you can take with you ;) ). After first stop on like 1.5h we came back to the boat and there was already waiting feast ready for these who paid full price and it was worth it! Excellent Greek specialities like their salat with feta, rice with meat balls, something with cream cheese that I don't know it's name but it was delicious. After we end our feast the boat moved to the next location to the other side of island and this second place was maybe better then the first stop! There was a cave that we explored and see a crab and many other small big fishes that swam with us all the time. We end up exploring island until we were almost burnt by the hot sun that shines above our heads all time and then we came back to the sea and continue snorkeling few more times. After we came back to the boat there was waiting surprise for all of us, it was really the sweetest and biggest water melon we ever had and it was nice sweet dot at the end of our journey. By the way even if you don't pay full price you have available drinks like coca cola , fanta , water and rose&white vine yummy.

And I forget to say that for me the best part was that you can jump from any part of the boat so if you are like me kind of water person :D it will be the greatest time of youre vacation on Crete!
Highly recommend for everyone on solo trip, with friends or youre gf/bf.

Unforgettable memories on the Christina Boat to Chrissi Island last year. We were hoping and had booked to travel back to Crete in 2020 and revisit Ierapetra and travel once again with friends to the beautiful Chrissi Island but because of the travel ban placed in Australia we are unable to visit this year. We called and rescheduled for 2021. See you then - looking forward to the swim stops and the beautiful food on the boat.

Christina Boat not only takes you to Chrissi Island but offers much more!
The reservation process went very smooth and we were welcomed on the boat by a huge smile from Gala :-) We sailed for about 1 hour to the island where we spent enough time to admire the beauty of the place and to have a swim in 'like Caribbean' sea! After that, we hopped onto the boat again with a few other people where we were served lunch near a beautiful beach on the East coast. There were several Cretan dishes and unlimited drinks (very nice local wine!) so plenty to fill you up and to try local cuisine. Later in the afternoon we picked up the rest of the passengers and stopped again on the North side where everyone could enjoy jumping off the boat and try this delicious wine and fruits.
We had a lovely time and wish we will be able to visit this magic place again with Christina Boat! Thank you!

We had a lovely day on the Christina boat and Chrissi Island.
Only the price we paid, 60 euro per person including normal lunch and drinks was much to high for what was offered.
Best regards,
Ronald from Holland.

This trip with the Christina boat was the best relaxation and fun I had since a very long time! I recommend this trip to everyone who'd want to enjoy a wonderful day, nice swimming in the middle of a beautiful sea and meet nice people. The island has very beautiful nature, the swimming was pretty calm, just relax! I was also happy for the friendly crew who was helpful to my family members. The food was excellent!

It was absolutely amazing day. We spent about 1 hour snorkeling in totally light blue sea around Crissi island. Noone can park a ship next to Crissi island, so there is no business and absolutely quiet, walking along was amazing - meeting no people, no stand with refreshment, no noise, no tourismus. It was very calming day actually. Travelling was pretty safe and crew was nice to us, they explained us everything, plus the food and wine were very delicate. We really enjoyed the perfect day at Cristina boat :)
