Cruise to Balos and Gramvousa in comfort with Blue Cruises!

Balos Laggon & Gramvousa island are two of the most visited and most photographed beaches on Crete, and Blue Daily Cruises will set the tone for your excursion, offering you a comfortable and fast ferry service from the Kissamos boat terminal.

Count on us for a relaxing and pleasurable ride which allows you to take in the unforgettable vistas over the Western Cretan Sea as we approach our destination.

Your boat trip to the island of Gramvousa and then Balos Lagoon starts from the port of Kissamos. The port is located approximately 41 kilometers south of the city of Chania. You can drive, take the bus or a taxi to get here. Either way, your trip should last for 45-50 minutes from Chania. In case you are traveling from Heraklion, Rethimno or Agios Nikolaos, be advised that the trip will be a little longer, but your arrival to Balos and Gramvousa will be worth your trouble.

Only if you take the early bus (bus of 8.30) from Chania Central Station you will be on time for the boat. The bus route lasts about one and a half hour. Also, take in mind that there is a bus at 6.15 to bring you back to Chania.

In case you drive to the port of Kissamos finding parking should not be a problem. There is a free parking lot in front of the port or you could park for free at many side roads close by.

Cruises to the island of Gramvousa and Balos Lagoon take place during the summer season, meaning that you can visit them from May to October depending on the weather conditions.

In most cases the ferry departs every day. For your convenience we advise you to be at the port half an hour before the departure time. While at the port you may wait until your departure by the port. 

While on board, rest, enjoy the Aegean Sea view, or have a meal. Before disembarking, you may want to buy some food, bottled water or refreshments to have with you throughout the day. You can use your credit card onboard for your purchases.

For your convenience, please don’t forget to wear a hat, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. During the summer months temperatures can be really high.

Very easy to book and a great price for a day tour of Gramvousa and Balos lagoon. We booked online a few days before and went to pick up our tickets the same day. The ticket girl was super sweet and kind, the rest of the crew were equally friendly and nice too. Overall the trip was great and I’m glad we got to see these beautiful locations, the waters are so clear and full of colour.

Great boat trip to Balos. Uses a smaller boat than the big companies and has a more personal and friendly service. Food and drink on board is lovely and the boats speed gives you more time in the destinations than the big boats. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing trip to the gramvousa Islands and balos beach! Cheaper than other companies and not overly crowded. Since the ferry is the first to leave the Harbour you get to experience gramvousa Island when it's almost completely empty! The crew was friendly and τhe boat was not crowded compared to the ferry next to it from another company which was chockingly full. There were still seats available inside, so you could both enjoy the sun outside but also take cover inside to avoid the heat.
