DAILY CRUISE FROM KISSAMOS TO GRAMVOUSA AND BALOS

Our ships depart daily (May-October) from the port of Kissamos and head towards the island of Imeri Gramvousa. During our one-hour trip, you will have the chance to admire the impressive landscape composed of steep rocks and hills, endless blue waters and little hidden beaches.

Gramvousa’s location and nature, the legends it is linked to and the long history it carries contribute to its very special atmosphere.  The renowned castle of Gramvousa was built by the Venetians is 1579, on the top of a steep rock. Its majestic beauty combined with the panoramic view and the legend of hidden pirate treasure linked to it are good reasons to pay it a visit. At the same time, Gramvousa’s crystal blue waters make swimming irresistible. After a two-hour stay on the island, we depart for Balos Lagoon where we will arrive in about 20 minutes.

No matter how many good the reviews you have read are or how many impressive photos you have seen... nothing can compare to how you’ll feel when you set foot on Balos! You will walk in the tranquil lagoon, swim in warm, swallow, emerald waters, lie on golden beaches, relax under the hot sun and admire the beautiful landscape comprised of rocks and hills that rise high above your head...! We will stay in this exotic place for about 3 hours.
