Departing from the port of Kissamos and while sailing, you will admire a huge cave, that is believed to have been the ancient shipyard of “Tarsanas”. At the end of the Gulf you will notice an impressive geological phenomenon

where, as a result of the passage of time, the western part of the island is rising, while the eastern part is sinking.

We arrive to the island of Gramvoussa after approximately 45 minutes. Here you will admire the Venetian Castle. During the Ottoman rule the Cretans had made a last stand here against the turks. The views from this point are spectacular. Also you can go for a swim in the crystal clear waters.

After approximately 1 hour, the boat arrives at the port of Gramvousa. The island's eminent castle was built by the Venetians in 1579 at the highest point of the island. It is surrounded by a wall of 272m. Gramvousa castle played an important role in the history of the region. The panoramic view, its majesty and the legend of the pirate's hidden treasure, will tempt you to visit it.

Kind attention : Due to Balos Lagoon registration into NATURA 2000 environemtal actions, the boat will no longer dock at the Lagoon . It will be anchored in the sea of Balos , staying there for about 1.5 hour. 

Any participant wishes, could swim in the cool, relaxing waters of the peninsula.
