The surrounding area of Chania bay is suitable for a 4 hours private powerboat tour to explore Chania town from the sea. The view of Chania old harbour and the coastline of the town from the sea provides a different point of view of the city. 

Our cruise is starting from the Venetian harbour in Chania and as we head for the Rodopou Peninsula we are travelling parallel with the Cretan coastline. Our first stop will be at Anc. Diktynna’s “private’’ peddled beach “Menies”, with crystal clear turquoise waters where you will enjoy a hassle-free relaxed time. Then we are getting onboard again and we continue our tour to Chironisia Bay, an isolated rocky bay with stunning breathtaking views and crystal clear waters. The beauty of the scenery, the privacy and the panoramic views helps you to relax far away from crowded beaches. On the way back your skipper will raise up your adrenaline with his high speed boat until we reach Theodorou island, declared protected park by the state famous for the protection of Cretan Ibex "Kri-Kri". Crystal clear waters with the wild beauty of the island provides an ideal last stop for swimming before we return back to Chania old Harbour.

Experience the freedom & luxury of chartering your own Wellcraft Scarab Exel 31” 850hp Powerboat and let our skipper create an unforgettable half day escape by visiting amazing exclusive locations with crystal clear waters. Travel in a sporty, comfortable and high class style with premium service by our experienced skipper onboard our 9,5 meters powerboat. Escape the ordinary boat tours and discover Cretan gleaming seas like never before. Discover some of the most beautiful and unspoiled secret beaches on Northwest Crete.
