Activity description

For the past 8 years, Alex and his team have been offering surf lessons and camps in the most famous area of Crete, Aghia Marina, near Chania. Now a full-day surfing trip will allow you to go a step further and surf at the best surfing spots in Crete. 

The local beach breaks at Chania are great for all level of surfers that wish to improve and enjoy the idyllic beaches of Crete. Parting from Chania, your instructor will choose the best spots for surfing depending on the weather condition. The experienced instructors know exactly which spots have the best waves for you to ride. Whatever the spot is, you'll always be equipped with top-notch equipment.

The surf trip starts early in the morning. You'll hop on a 7-seat Land Rover Discovery. Your instructor will then decide on the spots you'll visit. After an amazing day among the waves, you will be back in Chania in the late afternoon.

The itinerary is flexible and can be adjusted to the group's level and requirements. The team will ensure you get the most out of this surfing trip. You will also have the chance to see the best beaches in western Crete. Surfing in Crete is a magical experience you should definitely do if you are visiting the island. 

Crete has over 1000 km. of coastline full of beach breaks and reefs. Most of them have never been surfed before and many of them are still undiscovered!


The surf trip can be customized for the following levels: 

Beginner: If you are the surfer that has just entered the amazing world of surfing, Crete is the place that will help you to evolve. The surf guides will take you to the most friendly spots and help you take the next step. If you are a total beginner you can have some lessons and by the time you leave the island you will be ready to surf alone and next time join the intermediate tour!

Intermediate: You may be slightly nervous about surfing over rocks or reef however the surf guides will show you the spots along with the entry and exit points to push your boundaries. Crete has a large, diverse coastline that provides intermediate surfers with a playground of waves to explore. Please note there is no tuition for this package.

Experienced: If you are an experienced surfer who is happy and prepared to travel distances to find the best, uncrowded conditions; if you are comfortable riding reefs and point breaks, then the advanced guiding package is for you. 


The surfing day trip begins right at the airport or the harbor of Chania where you will be picked up by the jeep. 

Then, you'll be taken to the beach, it usually takes 1 hour to get to the beach, but it will depend on the beach you're going to. 

Once at the beach, you will be surfing all day until the afternoon, for as long as you want! During the day you can have lunch near the surfing spot or you can go directly for dinner after the surf trip. 

The surf spots in Crete are many so your instructor will pick the ones that are uncrowded and that fits the level of the group better.
