What people are saying about Heraklion Regional Unit

We were warmly welcomed on the catamaran and after a short round of introductions we started. It was a little wavy at first, but you got used to it after a few minutes. One woman was not doing so well, but she was well taken care of and was then able to enjoy the ride. Once at the bay, we were provided with scuba gear, pool noodles, air mattresses, and fishing rods. It was a lot of fun. Snacks and drinks were always available. For dinner we had delicious, fresh fish with vegetables and salad, which the crew prepared for us. Delicious!! At the end you could still enjoy the beautiful sunset and then it was off to the port again. There you could enjoy the rest of the time again and the water was nice and calm there. It was a wonderful trip and I would do it again at any time. (Great as a birthday present) Thanks to the great crew and the unforgettable experience!

Brilliant experience from start to finish. Would recommend this to anyone who is able to get to Heraklion. Our skippers - Nansy and Marinela - were perfect and made the day go from a 10/10 to a 12/10. We could not thank them enough. Was the best day and we'll remember it forever.

Super worth the cost & a genuinely nice experience! The captain and the co-captain were super lovely & made us feel very welcomed from the beginning. Fantastic views, a lovely time to swim & a right laugh. We loved it!

We had a very nice trip today. Vasil and Kristina were a fantastic crew. Very friendly, helped us and gave us an incredible time. A absolutely must do at your visit in Heraklion.

there was no sunset due to the weather but everything else was fantastic, especially our tour guide
