Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My boyfriend and I chose the sunset boat trip and it was the best decision ever. We were welcomed by a lovely lady who spoke English really well. We left at 19:45 when it was still light and went to a small deserted Island not far from Chania. We could take beautiful pictures during the trip and were perfectly on time to see a beautiful sunset. We were allowed to swim to the island, but we decided to stay on the boat to watch the sunset from there. There was fresh melon and watermelon and we got not one but two shots of ouzo!

While we enjoyed some fruit, we were told the history of the small island, which was really interesting.

The two people from the boat were lovely and I absolutely recommend you take a boat trip with manoscruises! It was the highlight of my stay in Chania. I didn't think I would enjoy the view and the trip as much as I did, it was wonderful. The price is really good as well (only 10 euros) and honestly I would have paid more for this trip.

This experience was everything for me and my family. It’s family friendly. The kids from ages 2, 5, 8, and 9 even had a great time with the Captain and being on the open water watching and seeing a gorgeous view of the city. Let’s not forget the water was amazing it was so calming and relaxing especially for me on our ride out into open water. The Captain has a good eye and knows the history of the Island, he told us about everything we needed to know about our trip, and things I didn’t even know about Greece.

That day it was my son’s 5th Birthday and we got to celebrate it with Manoscruises and friends, they can’t wait to go back out on the open water and swim around. There a lot more fun thing I could tell you about our trip, but I’m going to leave it right here cause you have to be there to see it 😁!! I highly recommend these guys for your next trip to Chania, Greece.

Thank you Manoscruises for showing us a great time!

My fiancé and me had a very nice experience with this trip. Manos and Sophia welcomed us on this beautiful traditional boat which took us to the beautiful islands of yahoo Theodori (now known as the natural habitat of Crete‘s endangered goats) and Lazareta, a former quarantine island for harmful diseases over the past few hundred years.
Snorkeling and getting to know about the history was very interesting, also Manos and Sophia supplied all guests with some fresh fruits, Cretan bakery and some Raki.
Considering all this service we were actually surprised about the low cost of the 4 hour boat trip - we would also pay more :)

Excellent day on the water with Manos and Sophia, very easy to coordinate, we booked a private morning cruise for our group of 11, including a 10 year old. They were wating for us at the dock, hoped in and off we went on that great traditional wooden boat. The boat is very spacious, comfortable and very stable when manoeuvering.

The cruise lasted 4-1/2h and was perfect, Manos explained the history of the area, giving the group details and answering question, was super sweet with the kid, letting her drive the boat. They provided snorkeling equipment for all, along with snacks - sandwiches and fruits, drinks and beers.

The entire party had a blast and enjoyed the charming boat, the lovely crew and the chance to swim in cristal clear waters with almost nobody around. What a day!

Definitely high praise for these guys!

Booked the sunset trip with my family both crew members very professional explained everything twice at each end on the boat, continually checking everyone on board was OK. We stopped at lazareto island to view the sunset 2 of my children and another passenger jumped at the chance to swim I'm the sea, they borrowed snorkeling masks so the could see the fish and threw in bread the sea almost boiled as little fish eat the bread. For the cost, enthusiasm and the experience I would highly recommend. They also do longer trips with serveral stops to swim or just enjoy the view, unfortunately we do not have the time on this trip but 1 of many reasons to come again. I apologise but both names escape me but Ευχαριστώ πολύ to them both for this amazing trip.

We had a wonderful day out with Manos and Agoles, going around the islands off Chania (we did the four hour island tour). The boat is fabulous, well equipped, and Manos makes sure everyone feels safe for the snorkeling and off-boat swimming. They gave us short "stories" about the myths and history of Agioi Theodorio and Lazaretta islands, and were great fun, ensuring everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Of course the glorious weather helped! The cruise was one of the highlights of our holiday, and I recommend visitors of all ages and levels of fitness to take a Manos cruise.

This was a really great boat trip. The boat is authentic and not commercial and overloaded. We were a family of 5 and the team were attentive and observant all the trip. We stopped at 2 locations and did snorkelling. There was a prepared snack and later fresh fruit. The history of each location was given and we really cannot recommend this boat trip more highly. It was a good choice.

What a fabulous experience and great value. From our initial enquiry when we were seeing what boat trips were available as we walked along Chania’s old town harbour, Communication via WhatsApp and the actual service on-board was fabulous. The trip itself was really good value for money, with two destinations and informative description of where we visited. A light sandwich, fresh fruit and soft drinks were provided in the price. The crew were very friendly and helpful and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I wholeheartedly would recommend to anyone looking for a fun trip out on the sea.

We booked a day trip for 14 people with Manos a few months ago in anticipation of our trip to Crete. The day before our trip, he contacted us to say that the sea was going to be rough (we could still opt to go out, but a number of our party get seasick so we didn’t) but was able to rebook for later in the week for a slightly shorter cruise at a lower cost. We had an absolutely amazing day. Crew were really helpful, knowledgeable and fun and were kind enough to organise some specific drinks for us on request. Food was simple yet delicious and it all got eaten. There were masks (goggles) to borrow but take your own snorkels. We would absolutely recommend and return another day! Our kids will remember this day for a lifetime - so many giggles, and they loved jumping off the boat into the water! The SUP were a big hit too. One thing to note is that the toilet onboard is a little rustic, so if you’re thinking it’s going to be top-end luxury you’ll be disappointed. For spending a day on/in the sea you can’t go wrong. Thank you, Manos!!!

We had a wonderful sunset experience. Great value for money, excellent hosts, very informative loved it so much we’re returning for the daytime cruise on Tuesday. One tip is book in advance as it is extremely popular, and I can fully understand why.
