What season is the best to charter a yacht in Crete?

The weather in Crete is generally pleasant, with hot summers and mild winters. The high season for boat rentals typically spans from May to September, when the temperatures soar and the skies are clear, creating the perfect conditions for leisurely sailing. During this period, you can expect long days of sunshine and warm sea temperatures, making it ideal for swimming and snorkeling. However, it's worth noting that this period can be quite busy and prices may be higher. If you prefer a more tranquil experience and lower prices, the low season, which runs from October to April, offers its own charm.

Where to hire a boat in Crete?

One of the nearest and most renowned ports is the Port of Heraklion, located in the capital city of Crete. It serves as a major hub for boat rentals, offering a wide range of options to suit different preferences and budgets. Another prominent port is the Port of Chania, situated on the island's western coast. With its charming Venetian harbor and bustling waterfront, it attracts numerous visitors seeking boat rental services. Additionally, the Port of Agios Nikolaos, nestled on the eastern part of the island, is another sought-after destination for boat hires.

Where to sail on your yacht charter in Crete?

Crete is the cradle of the Minoan civilization, whose heart and most important place in terms of archaeological wealth is Knossos. It is worth taking a walk around the city of Heraklion, which is the largest urban center on the island. We recommend a stroll through the charming and typical Cretan streets. You can also visit the monuments from the time of the Venetian occupation, such as the Loggia and the old harbor with the famous fortress of Koules.

What places should I visit in Crete?


Chania

In the west of the island, lies the charming town of Chania. Although it was partially destroyed by bombing during World War II, it still attracts crowds of tourists every year with its beauty. Especially the district of Splantzia, which preserves to this day the ancient atmosphere and spirit of Crete's history, cannot be neglected on your itinerary. From the port of Souda you can leave in a speedboat to the beautiful beach of Stavros or to Réthymnon.

Agios Nikolaos

On the east of the island is the town of Agios Nikolaos, famous for its numerous beaches. In the center of the town is the curious Vulisméni Lake, known as "bottomless". Of course, this is just a name, but a justified one: the bottom is 64 meters deep. The main marina is located to the south of the city and from there, you can take a nice boat ride to the island of Agioi Pantes.

Heraklion

The largest and most important city of Crete, its historical capital, named after the hero Hercules (Heraklion). During your cruise to Crete, don't hesitate to make a stop ashore to see the main monuments:

  • The Knossos Palace.
  • The Fountain of Morosini
  • The Nikos Kazantzakis Museum
  • The Archaeological Museum
  • The Orthodox Church of St. Titus
  • The Fortress of Koules

There are also many picturesque beaches in Heraklion. Many tourists come here exclusively to visit them, as their diversity allows everyone to find a quiet place to relax with the kids, as well as to spend time relaxing and playing water sports.

Bay of Balos

This is one of the most beautiful places in both Crete and all of Greece, this cove is called a Cretan paradise for a reason! White sand with a slightly pinkish tinge, unbelievable crystal blue sea... sounds incredible, doesn't it? Consider this bay a must-see on your itinerary, because you can't miss it when you travel to Crete! The easiest way to reach it is by boat, from the port of Kissamos.

What else can you do in Crete? Visit the deserted beach of Glyka Nera, swim at the meeting of the three Mediterranean seas, dive directly from your own boat, and discover the wonderful underwater world!

By hiring a sailboat or catamaran, you can sail from east to west on a real cruise, enjoying the magnificent landscapes of Crete. Use your boat rental in Crete to reach the island of Santorini, famous for its beautiful architecture and white houses with blue roofs. Who knows, maybe even Athens or the beautiful cities on the Turkish coast such as Antalya, Bodrum or Marmaris will also catch your eye, and a trip there will not take more than a few days.

Hire a boat with or without a skipper?

Having a professional skipper onboard provides a sense of security and peace of mind, especially for those who may not have extensive sailing experience. Skippers are well-versed in navigating the local waters, familiar with the best routes, and knowledgeable about the hidden gems of Crete. They can offer valuable insights and recommendations.

On the other hand, sailing without a skipper grants you the freedom to chart your own course and explore at your own pace.
