The remote northwest corner of Crete draws a veil over a few of its most exotic locations, such as the islands Imeri (calm) and Agria (wild) Gramvousa as well as the lagoon of Balos. B-crew Sailing Boat, an elegant sailing ship of 36 feet length, offers you the opportunity to enjoy a one-day private excursion in a small group, avoiding the annoyances of a loud and noisy crowd.

We will sail from Kissamos Port and as soon as we move off the port young and old may, if willing, attempt to hold the helm or even try out your chances with fishing while cruising. Depending on the weather the cruise takes approximately one and a half hours each way.

When we anchor at our destination, you will be able to enjoy a stroll, dive with specially-provided masks, snorkels and fins and explore nature, the Venetian castle of Gramvousa and the bottom of the sea. While you swim or relax under the sun or in the shade, tasty local dishes will be prepared for you.

After a day full of sun, sea and the stunning setting of Gramvousa and Balos, we will have a short cruise before our return, during which you may enjoy a cool refreshment or a beer.
