We were in Crete very late in the season and many of the water sports centres and other tourist facilities had long closed. Although it was the end of the season for many tourist businesses we were attracted by the good weather (25 degrees and blue sunny skies, whilst it was 5 degrees and overcast in the UK). So we...

Very polite and friendly customer service! They picked us up from the hotel and took us to some nice clear blue waters to snorkle while others went to dive. The dive center was very clean and neat. They had really good equipments and professional staff. Totally worth it for everyone!

Have been diving with Pelagos a couple of years ago and had a very good time doing so. In September I've visited Crete again, this time a place about 45 min. drive from Pelagos. Chose to dive with Pelagos again, instead of diving with one of the nearby diving centres. Says it all! Staff is very easy going and cunning,... More

We enjoyed a double canoe rental from Pelagos. The staff were well trained and very helpful. All of the equipment was new or in really good condition. The pricing was very reasonable and the lady said if we ran over our time she would not charge us extra ... We liked that. I would highly recommend this Water Sports Rental... More

The lady running the place was really helpful and very helpful. We were complete novices who just fancied a go at paddle boarding and she did all she could to ensure we had the best experience possible, helping us find a time when the winds would be minimal. When we did get to go out, the conditions were great and... More

We were so impressed with this place. We hired a boat to take out for an hour or two around the coast line as our kids wanted to do some jumping in and spotting fish. The owners were so professional and friendly. They went over everything we needed to know about the boat. Provided life jackets. Went through safety procedures,... More
