Full description

Embark on a multi-stop cruise from Heraklion to St. Georges Bay, Sissi, Stalis, and more. Hop on board the Black Rose pirate boat and enjoy a pirate-themed experience with face painting, music, dancing, and a BBQ meal.

The Black Rose sails daily from the Port of Hersonissos through the clear waters of the Cretan Sea. The first stop on the trip is St. Georges Bay. You’ll have around 2 hours to swim and snorkel and explore the area.

The boat was delayed at 12 noon and along the coast for a while and then turned back to St. George's Bay. We stopped there and snorkeled. We could see a lot of fish really. It's a beautiful place. Then back on board there was a lunch snack, simple but good. Then we drove on to Malia, where there is a nice sandy beach. After a short stay we go back to the home port, on the way there we got a piece of melon. The music on board was fun, something like a party ship and the crew is fun and nonsense with the guests, that was very funny. Had I wished for one more stop then it would have been perfect. 1 star deduction is due to a delay and because there were only 2 stops, this is not clear from the description. This excursion is made for a short snorkeling trip, fun and sunbathing, scenic or cultural you shouldn't expect anything here

A great moment super fun for family or friends! What a sensation to take to the sea, hair to the winds; to dive from the boat, swim while the barbecue is preparing (good quality meal / meat, good surprise); go back to the sea then make a beach ... Then take the sea again and always on a hyper toned music. Everyone dances. And what a nice crew. We want more! Certainly an atypical day that will remain in our memories.

Great trip for a day!

From the booking to the return in the hotel everything worked out perfectly. The ship is really fun. The crew is really trying and the whole thing is well done. The highlight is the bay for swimming from the boat. The BBQ was really delicious. Prices are human and drinks ice-cold. The only thing: the music is very loud at the beginning. After that we went again. Belongs to it and is worth it to try it out. The pick up and the return transport was great. Children should only sit under the sail because the sun really bangs in the summer. But worth a visit.
