We enjoyed our cruise to Gramvousa Island and Balos Beach. We went in mid-September, so possibly not as busy as when other reviewers went, but did not find it overly crowded. We thought the time ion Gramvousa was adequate to visit the Venetian fort, although probably not long enough to swim as well. However, I recommend going to see the... More

We booked this through Our Rep from Thomson Holidays and paid 135 euros for 2 Adults and 1 child of 8. I am not sure via Thompson Holidays we got value for money as others seemed to have Paid €22.5 each. Not sure if that included the coach pickup/drop off. The boat is picked up from a navel port and... More

A take a sea cruise to Souda. It was awful. The small boat cause nausea. That because the sea their was agitated and open. Additionally the promote that the boat get into sea caves. Nothing at all. And the ticket? Expensive The only good is a stop to a beach at the middle of the cruise.

Kids entertained with various pirate themed activities by the wonderful Christina- face painting, find the flag, tattoos, sword fighting amongst others. Stopped 3 times during the day to swim. Kids loved walking the plank. Kids received a certificate at the end. A great day. I would highly recommend it if you have kids!

When our cruise was rerouted to Crete, we came across the company's Black Pearl 7 hour cruise. The experience was amazing! We took a pirate ship to a cove to swim, then a beach for free time to eat and swim, then another cove to swim off the boat. Besides the amazing swimming locations, the staff was incredible and accommodated... More

During our recent family vacation to Crete we decided to do a ship cruise. We were originally planning on the evening sunset cruise for our daughter's 16th birthday dinner, but unfortunately the evening cruises are only scheduled once a week on Saturday and that didn't fit our schedule due to late arrival and departure on a Saturday. In the website... More

Brilliant entertainment, atmosphere and crew. Captain yanis is an absolute legend. It's a truly Greek affair! The night is filled with dancing which you can get involved with as and when you like and endless amounts of alcohol. On the whole -one of the best evenings we've had on holiday as a couple. A truly memorable night. Highly recommended if... More

Pirate for a day is a great time for children and adults. We spent the day on the Black Pearl and loved it. The crew was great and kept the children entertained with a flag hunt, face painting, coloring, sack racing and tug of war. We all got to walk the plank and there was lots of time to swim... More
