Beautiful experience Each moment I appreciated a lot The arrival on the boat with Marina and Marco who welcomed us with great smile and kindness. Pretty sailing boat to relax and very good lunch with local products and food. Loved it. The sea is really clear and we got to see different little species of fish. We could reach the island by swimming a bit and lay down on the sand or on the boat with their mattress.

Do some reading about Knossos before you go, it will will help you understand what has happened at the site in terms of the history of the excavation - fascinating! The guide is not able to give enough information in the time available for this. if you are an English speaker, you may struggle a bit with her heavy accent. Her German is excellent.

Had a lovely morning sail with friends, the island was a neat place although didn’t spend a lot of time on it. Need to swim ashore, so a little difficult to explore and/or bring a camera to the island. The captain and his first mate were friendly but didn’t talk much.

A very well organised tour. We were about 8 people in a sailing boat, had a very friendly guide. We snorkelled and swam at the beaches of Dia. The food and wine on board was lovely too. Hats off to the crew from Sailing Trips Heraklion . Would highly recommend !

Marcos the skipper and his assistant Marina were so kind and funny. And the food was delicious ! The sailing part was cool. The island of Dia is a cute and quiet place with clear water. Great experience !
