Rent a boat in Heraklion with a skipper!

At Click&Boat we have options for bareboat rentals in Heraklion as well as vessels that include a skipper on board. Unless you’re an experienced sailor, we typically recommend hiring a vessel with a skipper. Skippers are experts in sailing and they handle all of the logistics, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. The best part is that they are usually locals who can show you all of the hidden gems in Heraklion and surrounding areas, and give you tips to make sure your Heraklion boat trip is the best one possible!

What type of boat is best for a Heraklion yacht charter?

Want to rent a boat in Heraklion but unsure of which type of boat to choose? The answer will depend on what type of holiday you’re looking to have. If you’ve only got a few days to spare we’d recommend hiring a motorboat or a RIB as they are typically hired by the day and they are faster than other vessels, helping you see everything in no time. For a longer holiday with family or friends, choose a vessel you can hire by the week like a yacht or a catamaran. If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, a gulet is a great choice and if you’re an avid sailor, a sailboat. No matter what you’re looking for, Click&Boat has got what you need for your Heraklion boat trip!

The most common sailing destination close to Heraklion is Dia island. Just an hour away, this place is beautiful and ideal for a day trip that includes swimming, snorkelling, SUP, exploring the island and more.

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.
