7. Heraklion: Dia Luxury Private Sailing Trip with Sunset Views
Embark on a cruise from Heraklion to the uninhabited and Natura 2000 protected island of Dia. Enjoy a completely private sailing tour and take in views of the sunset and coastline. Once on the island, feel free to swim, fish, snorkel, or try out a standup paddleboard, before heading back to Heraklion after sunset.
Meet your guide and board a luxurious, 53-foot sailboat, equipped with a spacious entertainment area, ample cockpit and lounge area, extra freezers and drink fridges, multiple washrooms, and air-conditioning.
As you sail towards Dia, learn of the local myths and legends of the island, like how it was created by Zeus, the God of the sky. Once you land on the island, take your time to swim in the Cretan waters, fish, snorkel, try out paddleboarding or have fun with the water toys.
Alternatively, stay on the boat and enjoy all the amenities that it has to offer. Suntan on the massive front deck, and even take a little snooze on the comfortable, high-quality mattresses.
Later on, partake in some seasonal fresh fruits, enjoy fine local wines, or sip on some soft drinks served by the crew. You may also enjoy a tasty Mediterranean dinner onboard (optional, may be ordered after booking at an extra cost).
Absorb every second of the stellar sunset and the twilight magic as the sun, led by God Helios riding his golden chariot, dives into the magnificent Aegean Sea. Capture the magic moments forever by taking amazing photos or videos if you feel like it. Release your mind and let your romantic summer dreams become real.
As night falls, cruise back to the old Venetian harbor under the brilliant starlit Cretan sky feeling relaxed, delighted, and totally refreshed.
