On the New Road, the bus takes you west through the outskirts of Chania to the port of Kastelli. Here, a boat will take you to the small island Gramvoussa with its imposing Venetian castle and breathtaking views. After 2 hours of stay the boat will take you to the lagoon of Balos. The fabulous clear water of the lagoon and the white coral sand makes an irresistible paradise for all guests. After 2 hours the boat will take you back to Kastelli where the bus waits to pick you up. Walking shoes are necessary (for the climb to the castle).

1. We travel by big boats, that means: you have sunbeds, showers, children play room, Big air-conditioned restaurant, you can feel the waves less compared to a small boat. Big boat is more secure and comfortable.
2. We have guided excursion that means that we explain to tourists how to spend their time in the best way, we are always on the boat and ready to answer any question or help to solve any problem.
