A wonderful experience!...
John_G, Oct 2022
A wonderful experience! We spent a day of our honeymoon with this group and it was time well spent. They arranged a pick-up and drop-off close to our hotel. It was a quick drive from old Town Chania to the beach. Once we arrived, our guides talked us through how to paddle board. Overall a wonderful experience for all levels! Our group also got to take part in some cliff jumping! The group size was perfect for this excursion totalling about 10. We would highly recommend!

It has been great meeting you both John and Rachel! Thank you for adding our SUP tour to your honeymoon memories and for your top rating words! Our warmest wishes for a fun-filled future together!
Great Views, Great People
Natasha_H, Aug 2022
This was a highlight of our trip and we strongly recommend it to anyone considering. This tour was phenomenal, and easy for beginners. The views were amazing for the entire way. The guides, Kris and Julian, were very helpful and also entertaining. They even brought us on a little surprise excursion where we did some minor cliff diving and held sea urchins. Pick-up and drop-off was easy, and they took many pictures of us to give to us free of charge after the trip! Additionally, one of our group members forgot their shoes at their place, so the driver brought it back to where we were staying the next day. He even went out of his way to bring his bike to get them straight to our door since our place was not accessible by car.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Natasha! We are so glad that our tour was that pleasant and fun for you and that everything worked fine with the shoes :D We hope you all will keep having the most amazing travels, meeting the greatest people and enjoying the most memorable experiences!
Great fun in wonderful surroundings.

Thank you all Chris for sharing your enthusiastic summer mood with our team! We loved it having you all with us and truly look forward to paddling with you again!
A great way to spend a morning or afternoon in Crete!
Jayne_W, Jul 2022
This was the highlight of our half day in Crete. The beach and water was beautiful! Our driver was wonderful and informative while driving us to and from the beach. Our instructors were great! They were fun, patient and made paddle board fans out of us all. A good tour for beginners and experienced paddle boarders. I would highly recommend this tour if you are in Crete!!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
We truly feel so honored when we have guests from cruise ships! It truly means a lot when you choose to spend your limited time on our island with our SUP crew! Thank you for paddling with us and for leaving this amazing review!
Great guides, lots of fun!
Alexis_d, Jul 2022
Had a fantastic time. Van picked us up from a meeting point just a few blocks from our AirBNB. Guides were great at giving tips to be successful in standing up. They had us paddle to some coves to jump off some cliffs and look at the local sea urchins. Would highly recommend!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Alexis & Ben for sharing your enthusiasm and recommending our experience! Our team sends our warmest and sunniest regards!

Daniel_F, Jul 2022
The tour guides made for a fantastic experience despite the choppy waters. Cliff diving and the surprise sea creatures at the end was so much fun!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Daniel! Choppy waters make the most playful and fun playgrounds! Thank you for being part of our experience and for being so enthusiastic about us!
Will_A, Jun 2022
Absolutely amazing experience. I went because I read the other reviews and they weren’t wrong. Overall, it’s an excellent experience, with very friendly guides who are amazing at teaching you what to do. It’s a great adventure and it doesn’t matter what level you are; I was a complete beginner. If you really struggle they can tow you around so don’t fear!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you both Will for choosing to join our team! We truly want to share our passion for SUP with our guests and make it easy and fun for them and we feel so great that you and Grace enjoyed it! Keep travelling and making awesome memories!
Paddle Boards, Sea, Fun
Edward_T, Jun 2022
Super fun experience with inspiring paddle board experts. Never paddle boarded before and was quickly taught all the necessary techniques. The location is quiet, safe and a great place to experience the sea and coast. I would return without hesitation.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
We cannot wait to have you both return Edward and Sarah and add one more fun tour to your summer portfolio of activities! Thank you for your warm review and for paddling with us!
Crystal Clear, gorgeous!
Daphne_M, Jun 2022
This was so much fun! We were picked up at the cruise port and whisked away to a calm bay with crystal clear water. The guides were very friendly and helpful getting us started. They took us to a great spot for cliff jumping and were eager to make the trip enjoyable for everyone. The paddle boards were great quality and we had all the safety equipment needed. Thanks for making our stop in Chania memorable!
Response from Host, Jun 2022

Awesome experience paddle boarding
Nico_D, May 2022
Had an amazing time paddle boarding. First time doing it out in the ocean and the staff were amazing, they gave you some tips and techniques (rainbow technique is one I'll remember for sure), and we're super helpful throughout the whole experience! Was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Chania /Crete. Even if you aren't the strongest of swimmers i would still recommend. You are definitely in safe hands. 10/10
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for your awesome review Nico! It has been great having you both on board and I am glad that we were one of your highlights during your vacays! Keep paddling whenever you get the chance!

Instructors were extremely friendly and professional. Group was appropriately sized. Suitable for beginners. Also provide free photos/ videos.
Worth going!
Sophia R, Oct 2019
The guide/owner was very nice and made the adventure a fun day. The water was chilly and there wasn’t much to see for the snorkeling part of the trip but the area we went was beautiful and they took pictures and sent them to us free of charge.
started late, finished late, but great guide nice day beautiful beach and water
BrodieKat, Sept 2019
After a kind of rough start - we actually didn't even get to the beach until 2pm even though the tour was supposed to start at 1:30 and everyone was waiting at 1pm at the cruise dock. Then, at the beach we had to wait for the other group before us, as they SLOWLY got themselves out of the water etc. so we could have our turn. When you're on a cruise ship and have limited time, this isn't the ideal situation. But the guide was nice and friendly and kept us safe, had a good sense of humor and took pictures and videos of everyone. We had a great time, although we had a lot of wind so what i really thought was top notch was the guide tailored the afternoon to the weather rather than pushing on with the paddleboards. After a bit of paddleboarding, we found a less windy cove and snorkeled and jumped off some high rocks and enjoyed the day out of the wind. It was a lot of fun. I was late getting back to the ship (like a whole hour late) so that my mother was worried that something had happened. I guess that was to make up for the late start - but it just was a bit worriesome for my mother and then we had barely any time to walk around Old Chania. I would advise to book the earlier rather than later tour, not sure if the earlier usually runs long or not, but it might have been helpful to know in advance in my case.
Great all around experience!

We had a great time! Stefanos was really professional and good at catering the paddleboarding to fit the desires and experience of the customers. Very nice and enjoyable!

Andrea B, Sept 2017
Great excursion! Loutraki Bay was clear, calm and beautiful. Our driver was super helpful, nice, and passionate about SUP, the 2 instructors were fun, nice and knowledgeable. We had a small group and were able to master the paddle board, snorkel, see some jellyfish and get great photos! Only way it could be better is to allow time to get some food at the little stand before leaving which they let us do, but we felt bad making everyone wait on us. Paddle boarding is tiring and hunger inducing! They were so great, so in love with what they do it was infectious, and really positive and encouraging.

Cora K, Aug 2017
Great experience! Hotel pickup and drop off was included, as well as bottled water and a snack, which was nice. Having a place to change clothes and store personal items was also very convenient. Our guides were fun and helpful and recommended some local spots to visit during our stay in Chania. Paddled and swam past some beautiful scenery. This was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Crete!

KAREN N, Jul 2017
Only reason for the 4 stars is that we wish it had been a bit longer! All of us had a great time - even the unfit and middle aged managed to stand up and paddle. Location is great with beautiful water and scenery. Go early when the sea is flat calm
