Catamaran Daily Cruises Crete
An amazing voyage all around Cretan Sea.
Crete, located in the Southern part of the Aegean Sea, is the biggest and most populated island of Greece (around 600,000 people). A Daily Cruise in Crete will take you around the Aegean Sea, the Cretan Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, where you will experience the unique wild beauty and get to see some isolated beaches unspoiled by massive tourism.
Apart from having pristine beaches and crystal clear waters where you can have a refreshing swim, the largest Greek Island also has a big mountain range that crosses it from west to east. Due to its landscape being quite diverse, Crete’s weather depends on which area you are visiting. It actually consists of two different climates: a Mediterranean type of weather if you are closer to the sea (warm sunny days, high humidity and mild winters), or a North African weather if you are near the mountains: you should be able to see snowy mountaintops.
Getting to Crete is quite easy as it is one of the most important islands of the country. There are three airports in Crete, the most important one located in Heraklion, the Island Capital (Nikos Kazantzakis Airport); another one in Chania (Daskalogiannis) and a small one in Sitia. You can also get to Crete by ferry, and by car or by bus as it is well connected by a road network that takes you everywhere.
