Minoans, the ancient inhabitants of Crete, are known as the most skillful sailors of the ancient world. They were expertized, capable and owned such a powerful navy that the Minoan cities had no need to build any kind of fortification for protection. Minoan civilization is considered the only long-lasting peaceful civilization on earth. While a visit at Knossos reveals the significance of the uniquely intellectual, humanitarian yet so robust achievements of the Minoans, this cruise is an excellent opportunity to have a taste of these achievements from another perspective – underwater ! Dia island is located about 7 nautical miles north of Heraklion. In the south side of the island there are five small coves: Agios Georgios, Kapari, Panagia, Agrielia and Aginara. In the north there are rocky cliffs up to 60 meters high. According to the legend, Dia was created by Zeus. During the Minoan era the island was inhabited. Near Agios Georgios bay a harbour settlement was discovered. In 1976, Cousteau, while searching for the lost Atlantis between Crete and Santorini, suggested that there stood one of the most important ports in the whole island of Crete. The harbour appeared to have sunk due to the destruction caused because of the eruption of Santorini volcano (1450 BC) . You may still see the ruins while snorkeling around the place. The only available facilities are the port, in the bay of St. George, and a forestry shelter. The island is a Natura protected area and refuge for some very rare kinds of falcons. Visitors can meet a lot of wild rabbits as well. Dia also shelters the endangered Cretan Ibex.
