All about the trip
Escape the crowds and set off on an amazing sail to the uninhabited Dia Island. Enjoy snorkeling and fishing in crystal clear waters. Explore beautiful nature with rare animal and plant species.
We will pick you up in your hotel anywhere between Malia and Agia Pelagia and drive to the port of Heraklion. There we board our boat and head towards the serene and beautiful Dia Island.
According to an ancient legend, a giant lizard once tried to destroy Crete and Zeus turned it into an island by a thunderbolt.
In Minoan and Medieval times it had been a strategically important port of Crete. The famous ocean researcher Jacques Cousteau explored the area and discovered remnants of an ancient port under water.
Nature of the island is environmentally protected and you can see rare animal species here such as the wild rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus cnossius and Eleonora's falcon.What Wikipedia Says
