Yacht charter in Heraklion, Greece

Heraklion or Iraklion is the capital city of Crete, in the south of Greece. Heraklion is a unique city full of history, known to have housed Europe’s oldest known civilisation: the Minoans. Therefore, there is so much to see and learn in this seaside city, making it ideal for a boating holiday.

How much does a boat rental in Heraklion cost?

There are many boats to choose from on Click&Boat, with prices varying depending on the type, the size, seasonality, and more. In general, prices are higher for larger boats during peak season.

A motorboat for 5 people is around €600 a day throughout the year.

A sailboat rental for 8 people is approximately €3,000 per week in high season and €2,200 per week during low season.

A catamaran rental for 10 people is around €7,000 per week throughout the year.

What type of boat should you rent in Heraklion?

If you want to visit Heraklion but aren’t sure what kind of boat to rent, Click&Boat can help! If you have less time, you can rent RIBs and Motorboats, which are typically rented on a day-to-day basis. This will leave you with enough time to explore nearby beaches. However, if you want to venture farther and see more of the Mediterranean, you may want to charter a catamaran or a sailboat. These are usually larger boats and are therefore rented on weekly periods.

What is the best time to go to Heraklion?

The most popular time to visit Heraklion is during the summer. If you visit during July and August, you will be greeted with 12 hours of sunshine and hot and dry weather every day! This being said, it is also when the streets and beaches are the busiest. Therefore, a holiday with Click&Boat is perfect for this time so you can escape the crowds and find hidden beaches on your yacht charter.

What can you see on your yacht charter in Heraklion?

What better holiday than seeing crystal clear waters and golden sands? Luckily for you, this is exactly what the beaches in Heraklion are like. In fact, just five minutes from Heraklion centre is Ammoudara Beach. There is a particularly favourable breeze on this long beach, making it suitable for water sports enthusiasts such as kitesurfers and windsurfers. If you prefer a beach with little wind, you can also visit Amnissos Beach, just nine kilometres east of Heraklion Town. Here, you can relax on a sunbed and enjoy the Greek sunshine at your disposal and then take a quick refreshing dip in the aquamarine waters. Of course, if these beaches aren’t enough to satisfy your needs, you can take your boat rental along the coast to find the best match for you! There is nothing better than having the freedom of choice with a yacht charter in Heraklion.

Whether you’re a fan of history or not, there are so many archaeologically significant sites in Heraklion that are worth the visit. You can dock your boat rental in the main harbour and head inwards to some of our favourite spots. For one, the Old City as a whole is precious. As soon as you disembark from the harbour you will see a 16th-century Venetian Fort. Here, you will find the best restaurants lined up along the streets with traditional fish dishes. Then, if you travel just five kilometres southeast, you will find the remarkable Palace of Knossos. This is a must-see, as it is Crete’s biggest preserved Minoan site, showing the remains of a palace from as early as 2000 BC.

Should you rent a boat with or without a skipper?

You will find that many of the boats on our website come with the option to include a skipper. While this increases the price of your boat rental, this option can bring many benefits to your yacht charter in Heraklion. For one, a professional skipper is perfect for people that do not have a boat license, because they will manage the boat. This way, you don’t have to worry about any docking or anchoring, but can just focus on relaxing on your holiday. On a similar note, a skipper will be familiar with Heraklion and Crete in general. Thus, they can guide you through the waters, showing you all the great spots that only locals know.

These islands are known for their lush beaches and relaxing atmosphere, making them a great stop for families or romantic getaways.

These islands are some of the most popular destinations in Greece, thanks to their buzzing nightlife, iconic white houses, and unique landscape.

We set sail into the evening to reach Santorini in the morning. This is not recommended as night sailing can be rough and difficult to sleep, however, we were short on time & Nikos and his crew were very obliging. Luckily for us no one got sea sick and the starts were out and the wind was perfect. We spent a day in Santorini, walking around the island. The following day we chose to sail around the island, stopping in at small beaches & stopping to see the sunset into the water. That night we sailed back to Heraklion. The perfect adventure.
