We'll set off from Kissamos and head towards Falassarna, on the West coast. We'll give you a short history of the area, which was one of the 3 most important city states in Hellenistic times. A short walk away from the site of the ancient city is the sunken wreck of a WW2 transport ship. We'll show you the way to the nearest beach to swim from, which takes about 30 minutes, then we’ll snorkel out to the wreck, where you’ll be able to swim around and explore it to your hearts content. The wreck lies in surprisingly shallow waters, making this fascinating site accessible without scuba equipment. We'll have a quick snack at the beach after swimming, then walk back to the car and head back to Kissamos. We can do this experience any morning during the summer months (May to October). If no availability is shown on your preferred day please send me a message to inquire about booking. We also offer other experiences such as nature hikes (gorges & coastal), e-bike rental & tours, cultural excursions and other swimming/snorkelling tours. If you are interested you can find more details on our site, Fit in Crete, or contact me!
I grew up in the UK and moved to Greece in 2008 with my family. I worked for a number of years in turtle conservation and always had a passion for the environment, nature and an active lifestyle. Together with my Italian husband Manu, we started a business - Fit in Crete - offering different active experiences, like hiking, swimming and cultural tours. We seek out hard-to-find places to be able to share these hidden gems with visitors. We both swim in the sea year round, and Manu is a qualified lifeguard and ex-competitive open water swimmer.
