Snorkelling in Crete – In the area of Zorbas Island

Snorkelling in the area of your stay on Crete: In front of our accommodation lies a beautiful little reef in shallow water, where you can go for snorkelling. There are also stone piers in the water, where you can see crabs, seahorses (you have to look for them) and schooling fish. Snorkelling there is far from ideal when there are waves. Then just wait a day or go a few beaches further on, behind the stone pier. Snorkelling is a wonderful cheap sport, you can do by yourself.

Underwater scientist for 1 day: In cooperation with a biologist, we do a free research, the comber hcmr project. We give you a chart, with many fish on it that live in the Mediterranean. During snorkelling you can tick on this chart which fish you see and afterwards you will get access to their website to register the fish you saw. This chart you can use for all of your snorkelling adventures. With this you can help registering the amount and kinds of fish. This project is for both adults and children. Mail us for more information.
