a unique minority only found in this small part of the world and its Historical remains.

Along the way, we will stop at various points to take photos.
The first photo stop will give you the possibility to get professional shots of the gigantic cave seen bfrom the coast.
At the same time, you will see in various angles the Venetian castle built in 1574 above the cave.
Our team will tell you the history of the castles and even reveal to you the secretsof their walls.
Then, along the coast, we will cruise slowly to capture seabirds nesting on the impressive cliffs.
When we reach the north side of Theodorou, you will discover a small island called Glaronissi,
Seagull Island, separated by a narrow channel from Theodorou Island.
The size o the SeaStar boat allows us to enter the channel for close-up photo shots of the birds if the weather is good!
Across the channel, we will enter the wildest part of the island, the so-called “Black wall”.
A black rock cliff plummeting into the sea, reaching a depth of 30 meters.
This is the area that the famous indigenous Cretan goat, the “kri-kri” can be seen.
The crew will help you to spot them on the cliffs to get a good shot and wil also tell you about their mysterious origins.
When we reach the east side of the island,
the SeaStar will stop to the “Rock Pile” a fantastic spot for marine species,
where you will be able ti swim and snorkel
along-side fish, starfish, shells and octopus…
Our professional team will accompany you on this underwater journey,
in order to help you to discover the realm of Poseidon. Underwater photography,
during snorkeling, is now preferred for those who wish their personal photo shooting.
