Description

Enjoy a 6 hours cruise, on a sailing yacht, having as a destination, the historic and mysterious DIA Island. It allows you to get acquainted with the world of Zeus the father of the Greek Gods Minoan Kings, Venetian and English fleets, Jacques Cousteau, and the famous KRI-KRI goats.


Our trip to DIA Island starts by getting picked up from the hotels and taken to the port of Heraklion. There you will be welcomed by the crew, and our sailing cruise begins. Our vessel set sails at 09:00 am.


Heading north to DIA Island, during sailing, you can admire the beautiful Cretan Coastline, and maybe have the wonderful experience to see dolphins swimming alongside the boat. The island of DIA is located 6 miles north of Heraklion (1 hour sailing). According to the legend, DIA Island was created by Zeus, the father of the Greek Gods, and this is where Theseus was hiding, after killing the Minotaur.


Around 10:00 am, arrival is scheduled at DIA Island. Our yacht will anchor at the Bay of Saint George. Swimming and snorkeling in the crystal greenish water, of this wonderful bay, is an unforgettable experience (snorkeling equipment are provided). The water is crystal-clear, and the sea bed as the underwater scenery, will satisfy everyone. Sunbathing and chill out on board, fishing (just for fun, not professionally), or paddle-boarding for the adventurous, will make your day exceptional, full of sun, sea, freshness and relaxation.


While you enjoy your stay on DIA Island, the crew will prepare a delicious meal (pasta with seafood, salad & fruits). You can enjoy your lunch onboard, as well as drinks (wine, beers, soft drinks, water).


Complete the day with a last refreshing dip, before our captain will sound the horn, for the return sail to Heraklion.
Ending our Sailing day, full of unforgettable memories, we board our bus for the return journey to our hotel.
