  • I booked this private cruise as a surprise for my fiancée and we were supposed to have an amazing time. Reading the reviews and about the company I had no reason to doubt them. However it was a horrific experience and I am writing this as a caution for any potential future customers. We've also received a full refund from Cretan Activities that arranged the booking. We were not showed or discussed an itinerary and did not have any safety instructions explained to us before boarding. When my fiancée Dan tried to get on the boat because the boat was not secured properly to the shore Dan hit his head. After only a few minutes of being on the boat as we were making our way out of the harbour we heard some loud bangs against the bottom of the hull like it hit rocks and the propeller stopped.   The woman that was with the skipper looked worried, the skipper said something to her in Greek, nothing to us, put his flippers on and snorkeller and jumped into the water. We were hitting more rocks and drifting towards the rocky shore in big waves that looked like it could capsize the boat. The anchor was stuck and the skipper could not release it from the switch or manually. Skipper still didn't say much to us but seemed to be more worried about his boat. So Dan asked for the life jackets because we were not offered them. After a while a small fisherman boat arrived but instead of taking us to the shore, they were trying to save the boat by towing it away from the rocks. Dan asked the woman if there was another boat that was going to pick us up and she said that was the only one available.   We ended up stuck on this boat for over an hour, called the Coast Guard from our mobiles and in the end a boat that was in the area came to see what was going on. It had an Italian flag and as I'm Italian I pleaded with them to save us and take us to the shore which he did. We ended up having to go to the Coast Guard to give a statement on the day we were due to fly back to UK and worried we were going to miss our flight. I guess when things go well everyone has a good time but when there was an accident things were handled badly and we were scared. Simona and Dan
  • Top holiday. Don't lose this oportunity to visit by speedboat one of the most wonderfull beach of the world. 30 min time to reach Gramvousa and the castle and then Balos beach wher you can eat sandwiches and fruit. This experience has no price.
