BALOS - GRAMVOUSA TOUR (Best Transfer Price & Cruise)
Our bus starts picking up people from the centre of Chania at 8:15 a.m. up to Kolymbari where we arrive at about 09:00 a.m. You have a small stop at Kolymbari main office so we can collect from you the money for the cruise ticket, the natura ticket and the transfer to Kissamos port (both ways). Then you leave for Kissamos port (Kavonisi) about 43km west of Chania city where you arrive at about 09:30. The driver gives you your tickets, you get on the boat and start living your dream!
You will enjoy an amazing cruise (with Cretan Daily Cruises boats) close to the coastline of the northwest peninsula of Gramvousa. While cruising you will notice the phenomenon of land elevation by 6 to 9 meters above sea level (dated 2000 years ago) which is more obvious here than elsewhere in the island of Crete. You will arrive at the island of Imeri Gramvousa after a one hour sail.
There you can visit the Venetian castle, up on the rocky hill, breathe the fresh air and just dream away watching the breathtaking view! You can reach the castle in approximately 15 minutes by a footpath. Visitors say that maybe Gramvousa is even better than Balos itself!
Upon your return to the beach you will have enough time to swim in the crystal clear waters, while a freshly cooked meal will be under preparation on board (extra charge).
You will then depart for the protected from Natura, lagoon of Balos, where you will arrive 15 minutes later. This is a shallow and warm water lagoon with a white sand seabed that makes the water have a shiny, jade – like colour that made Balos the most photographed place in Crete! A little further from the rocks the sea gets deeper and its perfect for snorkeling! Lucky you!
The boat after staying 3 hours in Balos Blue Lagoon, arrives back to Kissamos Port at about 17:45 where our coach wait for you to get you back to your pick up points.
