Tour Details

Legend has it Dia was a giant lizard that the Greek god Zeus turned into an island to protect it from attacking Crete. Check out Dia for yourself as you swim, snorkel and fish in its tranquil waters.

You will hop aboard a boat for a relaxing ride across the water to Dia. Your and your small group will stop at the beautiful bay of Saint George, a quaint, ancient Minoan port overlooking Heraklion. Swim in the clear, turquoise waters and strap on your snorkeling mask to explore the magical undersea world below. During the 1970's explorer Jacques Cousteau and his team discovered an underwater ancient port just off Dia's shores, so you never know what you might see! Grab a fishing rod and try your hand at catching a local fish or simply settle back in the sand and bask in the warmth of the sun's rays on your face.

Unwind with a leisurely walk along cedar-lined trails then head back to the boat for a sumptuous lunch of chicken, vegetarian risotto, Greek salad, fresh fruits and beverages including water and wine.

If you love the water, this tour is for you! Sign up now for an unforgettable day sailing and exploring the waters around Dia Island.
