All about the trip
Destination: Theodorou and Glaronisi Islands
Boat Location: Chania Venetian Harbour
Boat type: Yacht Cigala 45ft (13,7 m)
Our journey to the National Park of Theodorou Island starts at 10.00. During the departure from the old harbor, you will pass next to the lighthouse and you will have the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views of the Old Town. Sailing west, you approach Theodorou Ísland in only 10 minutes, where you will make the whole round of it.
Theodorou Island is a protected area, part of the program Natura 2000, due to the diversity and rarity of plants and animals, a unique minority only found in this small part of the world and its historical remains.
Starting from the south end, you are going to pass close to a giant cave, where you can take professional photos. Just above the cave, is the Venetian castle built in 1537. You will be informed about the history of the castle and the island by a member of the crew.
When you will reach the north side of Theodorou, you will see a small island, called Glaronisi. Then, you will enter the wildest part of the island called "Black Wall". At this point, you will probably see the famous unique Cretan goat "kri kri".
The next stop is at the north side of the island, at the rock pile point. An amazing place with crystal waters, starfish, and shells. There, you will have the opportunity to swim or relax at the comfortable sunbeds of the yacht while listening to the sound of the waves and lounge music. For the active ones, there is a suggestion of a snorkeling tour. Our professional team will accompany you on this underwater journey, in order to help you to discover the realm of Poseidon. Underwater photography, during snorkeling, is now preferred for those who wish their personal photo shooting.
The last stop of the trip is above the wreck of the German aircraft Junker 52 of World War II. Enjoy your trip!
