Starting early,this excursion leads us to the western point of  the island.After a long-lasting route we will reach the Port of Kissamos or Kavonissi.Here we will take our boat for a pleasant sail along the coastline.On the way you can see the signs of the impressive geological phenomenon of land elevation by 6 to 9 meters above sea level as Crete has been rising out of the sea on the western side and sinking on the eastern side for more than 2000 years.

Next  we will arrive in the port of the pirate island of GRAMVOUSA.During the
Turkish occupation,the residents of the island started looting boats passing through, which gained the island its pirate reputation.It is a protected habitat area. Not to be missed a visit to the Venetian Castle,the spectacular view,the marvelous landscape and the “legend of the Pirate’s hidden treasure”.As well as your visit to the castle you have plenty of time for swimming or having lunch on board.

Our boat then will depart for the Blue Lgoon of Balos,a shallow and warm water lagoon.Here the crystal-clear,azure colored sea water in combination with the white sand makes this place unique and one of the most beautiful beaches all over the world.
Our stay will be three hours,where we enjoy a fantastic swim or to do sun-bath at the white sandy beach.
