Our daily trip covers about 20 miles and we sail together for a few hours, in the turquoise, crystal-clear waters of south Chania. What is amazing is that some of the most beautiful and isolated beaches of South Crete are so close.
Setting off in the morning from the Sfakia Port, we will stop first at Glika Nera (Sweetwater beach) for a dive. Then we will continue our daily sailing trip to the open sea, depending on the wind. We will see the exit of the Samaria Gorge while we set sail in the open sea.
We will offer you a traditional Cretan light meal with local products, in a private bay that you can also enjoy swimming in privacy. We will approach the amazing natural bay of Marmara caves, standing at the exit of the Aradena gorge and there you can explore the marine life of the caves. Our last swim will be in the afternoon at the picturesque bay of Loutro.
During our trip, you will really feel relaxed and you will have a sense of isolation and privacy. Our yacht is the only one in South Chania. Moreover, due to the high mountains just above us, we will be fully protected from the strong north winds, eliminating the possibility of your excursion being canceled, but we always check the last forecast and we choose the best destination for each day.

Christos and Annie are a young couple who first met at an altitude of 1680m. at Kallergis Refuge . It was love at first sight! After a while, their love for freedom and sailing led them to create this company to organize sailing trips.
Christos Paterakis was not born in any hospital of Chania, as some belief, but his existence is the result of limestone and granite distillation back in 1979. From an early age, he‘d rather climb rocks and mountains as those really appealed to him. There was also the sea beside the mountains though.
Having practically grown up inside the sea he was always attracted by water so he started sailing from a very early age, participating in many sailing rallies across the Aegean Sea, even obtaining first place in the International Aegean Sailing Rally in 2011.
He is a holder of the HORC Skipper Certificate. Today he is the captain of the ”Soupia'' sailing boat during the summer months and the owner of Sailingsouthcrete company (the previous name of the company was Sailingcreta (the old website was sailingcreta.com).
He also runs the Mountain Refuge of Kallergis (Kalergi Lodge) located on the White Mountains at a 1700m altitude and he is the owner of the Hiking Creta company.
Moreover he is a journalist for the motorcycle magazine MOTO.
Annie Kakouri Maraka, was born in 1988.
She is a Civil Structural Engineer who changed her life from the job in the office to pursue her travel and entrepreneurial dreams.
Her main objective was freedom and a sailing boat is the means to freedom.
So hers has come true.
Apart from her degree in Civil Engineering, she is a holder of the HORC Skipper Certificate and she also has a master in Tourism.
Moreover, she has a degree in Psychology.
She loves painting, dancing and writing,as she is also writing a love story and one of her dreams is for her story to become a book.
