Tour Details

Join our 4h30 sailing trip in the afternoon and combine the delight of a lazy swimming in the quiet bay of St George, fish and snorkel with our equipment and have a walk along the beautiful trail on the island.

Enjoy the quietness of late afternoon afloat to wrap up your day. Taking a warmer dive as soon as you reach Dia island and a cooler one later in the afternoon – a very special time on water, will make your day truly enchanting and refreshing!

Enjoy our freshly prepared menu onboard, admiring the birds that return on the island for ending their day, before starting your sailing back to Heraklion under the cool afternoon breeze.

Dia, the small island opposite Heraklion, environmentally protected and integrated in NATURA 2000 network, with a shape of a giant lizard, with turquoise, extremely clean sea water and a magic seabed. With a long history as a Minoan ancient port, Dia is surely one of the top attractions and one of the best swimming point in Crete and a sailing day trip is the only way to enjoy it!

With a geographical orientation that makes it fully protected from strong winds, this can be the best choice to spend a day at the sea even in the windiest days of the summer
