Full description

The boat departs from the Old Venetian Harbor and heads out onto the Gulf of Chania. Pass by the island’s famous lighthouse, which was built by the Venetians in the 16th century and later modified by the Egyptians in 1839. The boat continues to sail west towards Lazaretta Island, a small island close to Chania which provides the best views of the sunset across the Kissamos Mountains. The island has a vast history that predates the Venetian occupation. Listen to your guide share lively commentary about the history of the island and its former inhabitants as you watch the sunset and the sky change color. Relax on deck as you marvel at the sunset against the Kissamos Mountains, then enjoy a traditional Greek raki. As the boat begins the return journey back to Chania, admire the harbor’s glistening lights reflecting against the water as evening turns to night.

Great experience, the 2 people on board are super friendly and welcoming. We were originally supposed to do the crossing on Tuesday but because of the rain, they kindly offered to postpone to another date. I highly recommend, the meeting point is easy to find! Thank you again for this great weather, remember to take your swimsuits because you have 30 min to swim in front of the sunset

A simply incredible experience and the best 10€ spent of my trip to Crete! A short one-hour walk and a very pretty sunset, you can even swim in the water! Music on board the boat, we were also offered traditional raki and fruit on board (watermelon for us!) We were also given some information and explanations on the Chania lighthouse, and on the small island near which we stopped to watch the sunset! A must do if you're in the area, it's really worth it!

Die Abendfahrt war echt den Preis wert: Aus dem Hafen raus, an eine kleine Insel, dort im Wasser fest gemacht (auch andere Boote waren da). Bei Sonnenuntergang gab es das Angebot vom Boot ins klare warme Wasser zu springen (außer mir hat sich niemand getraut) - man hätte zur kleinen Insel schwimmen können. Danach gabs ein Schnäpschen und Frucht, dazu ein kurzer Input zur Insel. Als Abschluss wurde im Hafen eine Runde an den Cafes vorbei gedreht. Schöne Fotos gemacht und ein tolles kleines Erlebnis gehabt.
