Location: The Old Venetian Harbour Of Chania

Chania is located on the north coast in western Crete and is the capital of the Chania Prefecture. It was first settled by Minoans with the name KYDONIA – CYDONIA. The harbor was built by the Venetians during their colonization in Crete and specifically between 1320 and 1356. It was an important center, serving the Venetian military ships, as well as one of the most important commercial ports of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

In the 16th century, due to a perceived Turkish threat, the harbor was included to the new fortification plans of the city of Chania. A fort constructed next to the entrance of the harbor and enhanced with bastions even on the breakwater. Today, the old town of Chania preserves deeply the signs since Crete was a colony of the Venetians (1252-1645), with the necessary additions of the subsequent years of Crete’s conquest by the Ottoman Turks (1645-1898), as well as the less visible but existing signs of the Egyptian domination (1831-1841) that occurred during the Ottoman rule.

Today The Prefecture of Chania is considered the greenest area in Crete as the mountains White Mountains are responsible for the increased rainfall compared to the rest of Crete.The prefecture of Chania combines many beautiful beaches , small fertile plains , high mountains and deep gorges , like Samaria Gorge .
The Venetian harbor with its lighthouse and the old city center have given in Chania the reputation of the most picturesque town in Crete, which hosts thousands of visitors every year.


This cruise with Manos and Sophia was delightful! We booked online a day in advance via their website, which worked without any problems. We had a wonderful time on the boat, enjoying the beautiful views and hospitality of the hosts. We were provided with snacks and drinks while learning some history about the Islands we visited. The 4 hours flew by and we would definitely recommend the cruise to anyone!

It was an amazing trip! The weather was beautiful and the water was calm. We sailed to the island to see the sunset. It was beautiful. We got fresh fruit and ouzo. It was delicious. Captain Manos told also a good history story about the island. After that we sailed back to the Old Venetian Harbor. We did get a good view of the lighthouse. That is great because the pad to the lighthouse is closed. I arranged a little surprise with the hosts. My girlfriend and I did get back on board and made another round to the Old Venetian Harbor. After that we sailed at the lighthouse and there I asked her to marry me. It was a really great experience.

Highly recommend! Manos and Sofia were awesome! They are so kind and knowledgeable and great company! The boat itself has a lot of character as well. We took the half day trip and got in a lot of swimming. They have food and beverages. And raki of course. They also have nausea chews in case anyone needs any. Overall great experience!

A very friendly and genuine couple offering various trip options leaving from Chania old port at various times of the day to visit one or two nearby islands in a beautiful wooden sailing ship. We took the sunset trip. The team served delicious fresh fruit and drinks while informing us about the history the island.
