cultural sailing cruise around chania

Follow the water trails of the ancient Mariners on a 4-hour evening cultural cruise around Chania: if you are a history enthusiast and you also love sailing then this is the right choice for you! After a short, introductive walk at the old harbor of Chania, join us on board, away from the crowds, for a sail back in time when Chania was called ‘La Canea’ and it was filled with Venetian merchants and military galleys.

Designed Just For You

More for the tour

As we move out of the harbor, we go further back in time to get to know the long and fascinating history and prehistory of Chania and Crete while also discovering the secrets of the ancient navigation. From the picturesque Venetian harbor to the over-2000-meter-high peaks of the White Mountains, the view from the sea is just breathtaking. We’ll have all the time to enjoy it as we sail west towards Thodorou, an uninhabited islet and wildlife refuge for the wild Cretan goat.

And more...

The islet’s history is also tied to important battles dating back to the Venetian period and WWII. After a relaxing swim on the south side of Thodorou, we’ll sail east and about 15 miles later we’ll arrive at the scenic old tannery district of Chania, where the sunset and the vacant historical buildings will provide the perfect, almost cinematic, background for a light snack and a glass of wine on board. Finally, we return sailing to the old harbor of Chania, relaxed and rich in knowledge! The tour is escorted by an archaeologist/licensed tourist guide and a professional skipper. The tour is offered in English and Italian language.
