Full description

Embark on a multi-stop cruise from Heraklion to St. Georges Bay, Sissi, Stalis, and more. Hop on board the Black Rose pirate boat and enjoy a pirate-themed experience with face painting, music, dancing, and a BBQ meal.

The Black Rose sails daily from the Port of Hersonissos through the clear waters of the Cretan Sea. The first stop on the trip is St. Georges Bay. You’ll have around 2 hours to swim and snorkel and explore the area.

By the time you’re back on the boat, the pirate crew will have prepared a delicious BBQ meal for you to enjoy. Later, head for the coast of Malia and Stalis for the second swimming stop.

This experience was fabulous! We had the best day and so much fun!! The crew were amazing! Hardworking and friendly playing with the kids and adults and generally entertaining everyone. The music was brilliant and captain was really funny, drinks well priced and a decent lunch with a drink included. Two stops for swimming, pool noodle ‘sword’ fights, face painting and the kids got to drive the ship. We saw some lovely sights along the coast and fed the fish. I cannot recommend this trip enough for only about £40 we loved it!

A brilliant day out - staff were great, boat had plenty of space on our visit, food provided was fine, and we were very lucky to have amazing weather. Great atmosphere with music playing while you sail, and the swim and beach stops were good. Would recommend.

Die Tour war sehr schön und die Crew hat gute Laune verbreitet! :) Nach dem ersten Schwimm-Stopp gab es etwas zu Essen+1 Getränk. Später gab‘s nochmal ein Stück Melone. Am Anfang der Tour wurden Fotos mit den Piraten gemacht, die man später für 15€ hätte kaufen können. Es wäre schön gewesen, wenn das noch in der Beschreibung stehen würde, denn leider hatten wir nicht genügend Geld dabei und konnten die Fotos nicht kaufen. :-( Die Tour ging insgesamt auch „nur“ 4 Stunden und nicht wie beschrieben 5 Stunden. Alles in allem aber ein sehr schönes Erlebnis. Es lohnt sich!
