What you can expect

Every day, the Black Rose embarks on boat tours from the port of Hersonissos through the clear waters of the Cretan Sea. Hop aboard this mighty vessel and enjoy the opportunity to explore magnificent sea caves, swim and snorkel in refreshing waters, and enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch.

Make your way to Hersonissos Port and step aboard the Black Rose, where a friendly and experienced captain and crew greet you. Drift peacefully into the sparkling waters of the Cretan Sea toward your first stop, St. George's Bay. Marvel at sea caves filled with blue light reflecting off the water, and jump into the sea for an invigorating swim with snorkel gear. Hop back on the boat and enjoy a barbecue lunch, prepared by your crew.

Continue to Malia and Stalis for a chance to see Crete from a different vantage point. Cruise along the sea taking in incredible coastal views, making a stop at the gulf of Stalis for more swimming. End your experience with a relaxing ride back to Hersonissos Port.
