Cruises | From Heraklion & Malia: Boat Trip to Koufonisi Island

A journey that differs from everything else! An adventure without limits, an unforgettable day on Libyan sea!

After arrival by bus in Makris Gialos to the southern coast of Crete, the boat trip begins with the Pirate ship “Eydokia” to Koufonisi. The trip through the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea takes about an hour. Approached the island we admire the caves and the steep cliffs.

The island is surrounded by 36 fantastic beaches and a walk around the island (about 1 hour) gives you the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside, the emerald waters and the fine golden sand.

On the open deck of the ship, entertainment for children is available (animation). In this way our little friends are living a wonderful pirate adventure by participating in various games.

The self-service bar is open throughout the cruise so you can enjoy anytime your lunch, snacks, salads and drinks. The polite staff is at your disposal and will leave you with the best impressions.
