Important notes:

1. Kindly note that the itinerary and stops of a cruise may be subject to alterations without prior notice in case the conditions are not appropriate to sail outside the Caldera.

2. The tour duration is different throughout the season, especially the sunset cruise. During June, the tour lasts about 6 hours (daylight is longer), while in October is about 4 hours and 30 minutes.

3. All yachts and boats in Greece cannot moor directly on the beach. We have selected the best points for swimming and snorkeling, the closest possible to the beach.

4. Hot Springs: It is good to know that catamarans/yachts stop 50m away from the warm sulfuric water of the Hot Springs bay. The temperature in the Hot Springs area is up to 4°C warmer than the open water. Guests swim securely close to the Volcano.

5. Passengers have to remove their shoes before embarkation.

    Travelers love 105olives

    We are working hard to make sure our guests enjoy their travel experiences with us. We let our customers' testimonials speak for us.

    We went to Crete last year and had the best local experience going through them. Especially the gastro tour, and absolutely loved Chania and the villages! We organized everything with them from transfers to tours and dining - everything went smoothly with great communication. Highly recommend using their services if you want a true local experience with excellent seamless service. Thank you Katerina and team!

    Crete’s top boutique travel agency and personal concierge service. This has been an unforgettable experience for my me and my wife and we cannot commend enough Katarina’s passion for history and her extensive knowledge of the island. Look to her to take you to places on Crete that are rarely revealed to the average tourist.

    We were on a tour through 105olives. I definitely want to share only positive vibes from the communication, service, and experience we received. Katerina is a very friendly, professional, and moreover nice person herself. I have been traveling worldwide and 105olives tour services are one of the best indeed. Highly recommended.
