Kissamos: Balos and Gramvousa Private Sailing Trip with Meal

2. Kissamos: Balos and Gramvousa Private Sailing Trip with Meal

Arrive to Kissamos Port by car or regional bus and board the sailboat with the green sails. Enjoy the company of only your private group and the crew and skipper as you cruise along the coast to Balos Lagoon and then to Imeri Gramvousa Island.  After about 1.5 hours of sailing, reach the lagoon, home to one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Swim and snorkel in the turquoise water, or treat yourself to some relaxing and sunbathing on the white sand for the next two hours.  Afterwards, enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch onboard the ship. Your next stop is the island of Imeri Gramvousa, where you can enjoy the stunning beach and swim in the crystal-clear water. If you'd like to snap an amazing photo of the Balos Lagoon, you will have the opportunity from the top of Gramvousa after a leisurely, 20-minute hike. At the top, built into the rock, you will spot the Venetian Castle, one of the most famous fortresses in Crete.  The views from here are seriously breathtaking. After a full day of sun and sea, your skipper will start the journey back to Kissamos Port. Onboard, rest or nap in the covered cabin, hang out in the covered dining area, and utilize the bathroom with shower.

Mario and Jared were outstanding instructors! Mario speaking French helped us enormously. Big difficulties at the beginning for the breathing due to the stress but they knew how to relax us quickly. Jared accompanied me throughout the diving year because he felt it reassured me and I really appreciated the attention. The experience itself was amazing! Magnificent fish, sea urchins, a mesmerizing blue sea. An experience not to be missed considering the adventure we had, the great companions and the unbeatable price! It would be a mistake not to consider this activity.

Fantastic trip. They collected us from the port and dropped us off which was great. The actual scuba diving was great. They explained how everything worked & once in the water were really helpful. Everyone should do this…….. would highly recommend

Incredible first dive! The staff/instructors are super friendly and professional, and the dive area itself is very pretty and “friendly” towards beginners.

Such a memorable experience; the instructors were very attentive and patient. I would definitely choose them again.

Super supervision, a pleasure of diving with qualified people. great time
