Welcome to Chania in Crete!
Come aboard and let us take you for a full day of safe, fun sailing, swimming, Cretan cuisine and culture aboard our luxurious
43 ft Dufour Gib'Sea or on our 9m Pearson P30 sailboat that
crossed the Atlantic Ocean to find its home in the beautiful waters
of Chania in the island of Crete.

Cretan Sea and get the salty taste of a sailor’s life !
Anchor in a secluded bay, snorkel in crystal clear waters,
enjoy aboard freshly cooked Greek cuisine, take part and learn
the basics of sailing, conquer the wind and waves.
Return home with a memory to last a Lifetime!
We sail east out of the bay of Souda with the beautiful hillside view of Kalami area, past a small uninhabited island with a small fort, with its cannon ports on the waterline , where the Venetians kept the pirate ships out of the bay.
So close you can almost touch it!
ALWAYS depended on wind direction we follow the coast with the magnificent fort of Ancient Aptera view high up on the hill and the Idjedin prison fort just below it, always with the spectacular White mountains in the background, past the tourist crowded beaches, we reach sailing for a lighthouse on the tip of the peninsulan of Drapano.
ALWAYS depended on wind direction we may sail northeast or we may sail northwest behind another small uninhabited island, to a small cove and fishing harbor where while you swim and snorkel in turquoise crystal, clear waters, I prepare you a freshly cooked Cretan/Spartan lunch with Greek specialties, local pasta, local appetizers, salad, mama's olives, goat cheese, fresh bread and local red wine/beer/soda and local, fresh yogurt with sweet fruit. You enjoy, relax and then we lift anchor to sail back to port,usually as the sun starts to set in front of us.
We sail for at least 30 n.miles and you can do all the sailing, if you want to, with myself as the navigator
and chef. Even if you have never sailed before you will be able to learn and do most of the sailing.
We offer you the best of services, at the most reasonable pricing with a true sailing experience, away from the usual tourist hoopla...
