 Details of your trip

The ferry leaves from the port of Kissamos and sails in the bay for an hour, after a while you will see a large cave known to be an ancient shipyard. At the end of the bay you will see an impressive geological phenomenon, over time Crete’s west side is rising and the eastern side is sinking. This is happening because of the movement of the African tectonic plate under the Eurasian plate. You can see the ancient coastline along the rocky shore.The self-service bar stays open throughout the whole cruise, offering light meals, salads, soft drinks, coffee, ice creams and more.
 

Gramvousa - The island of Pirates
 

The highest point of the island is 137 meters, here you find the famous castle of Gramvousa that was built by the Venetians in 1579. The castle played a huge role in the history of the area because of the panoramic view and the legends about a hidden pirate treasure. You need to hike up for about 20 min to reach the top. Please remember to wear good comfortable shoes. You can also have a swim near the chapel of Agioi Apostoli or you can choose to stay on the ship. Another fun fact is that Gramvousa island has three plants that havent been found anywhere else on earth. The break in Gramvousa will be 1 hour and 45 minutes. The trip from Gramvousa island to Balos is about 20 min.
