It's high time to make some adventurous underwater discoveries! Use your time in Crete to explore the fascinating underwater fauna and flora of Crete's marine universe. Whether you'd like to come observe what happens in the waters of the famous Kalivaki beach or rather prefer taking a speed boat to different diving spots, our local team of diving experts responds to the wishes of all snorkelers!
If you opt for the snorkeling trial session, you'll stay at Kalivaki beach where you'll discover the local underwater life. Those of you choosing the snorkeling by boat tour will take a speed boat to 2 different diving spots. Usually, these spots are Empros Yialo and Drepano.
- Meeting & Preparation:
Depending on whether you'll use our hotel pick-up service or not, we'll either meet at your hotel between 08:10 and 08:45 a.m. or at 08:10 a.m. at our school's office in Rethymno. We'll then all arrive at 9 a.m. at our beach base at Kalivaki beach. Once there, your instructor will give you a short briefing on the basics of snorkeling, the safety rules and the equipment used. After the briefing, you'll be ready for your snorkeling adventure!
If you wish to use our pick-up service, simply let us know beforehand and we'll gladly come pick you up from your hotel.
Depending on the option you chose, you'll either stay at Kalivaki beach and do two sessions over 3hrs there (each session lasting approximately 45min) or take a speed boat to get to two different diving spots. Sandwiches and beverages are included in the latter option, as it lasts for 5hrs> in total and you'll therefore need and want a snack in between snorkeling sessions.
Once the activity is over, you'll get back to the base where you can quickly take a shower and change. If you've opted for our pick-up service, you'll be brought back to your hotel.
