    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Gramvousa Beach, Gramvousa, Crete 734 00 Greece

    As soon as we reach the port, you go aboard the ship to set out on the cruise.The ship departs from the port at 10:20. An hour later you reach the small island of Gramvousa.The ship stays at the island for two hours.The castle of Gramvousa is to be found at the top of the island… built by Venetians on top of some steep cliffs in order to act as a fortification protecting the island, today it offers visitors a panoramic view to the amazingly blue waters of the Cretan sea.

    If you wish so, you can climb up the path to the castle, if not, you can stay on the beach and swim. (Climbing will take you at least 20 min to reach the castle. Proper hiking shoes are a must!).

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Balos Lagoon, Kissamos, Crete 734 00 Greece

    he ship departs from Gramvousa Island at 13:30, the breath-taking lagoon of Balos being its destination…The journey is short, and lasts only about 20 minutes.The ship reaches Balos at 13:50 and stays there for three hours.

    Words can’t possibly do justice to the wild beauty your eyes will meet once you reach Balos…

    The white and at places pink sand, the turquoise warm and shallow waters, the rocks reaching for the sky around the lagoon… all these amazing elements come together to create a heavenly landscape, which you are bound to want to keep returning to!

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Kastelli Kissamos Old Port, Kissamos, Crete 734 00 Greece

    On board and throughout the journey, you can enjoy your meal in the self-service restaurants of the ship, where traditional Cretan dishes are being offered, or at the ship’s bar.You reach Kissamos Port an hour later; our bus will be waiting for you there, in order to return you to your hotel.

    Duration: 2 hours
