0 – 2454m above sea level and back. We climbed from sea level to the top of Pachnes, the highest peak on the White Mountains in Crete. The summer is officially over, but the weather is still great here in Crete. The Autumn rains will start soon, and the mountains will be covered with snow. […]
We went out snorkelling from one of our favourite spots near Kissamos. Shallow rocky reefs, flat sea surface, light games in the water, fish playing hide and seek with us. We spotted sea breams. A moray eel. Damselfish. A small grouper. A shiny amberjack. We had a good morning under the sea.

We have been spotting lionfish for a few weeks now on the West and South coast of Crete. Today, we saw 3 by the WWII shipwreck in Falasarna. We also saw two triton shells, one live and one just the shell. A good day out in the sea in this beautiful corner of West Crete.
We went on a snorkelling tour around the WWII shipwreck near Falasarna today. It’s the end of September, and the sea is very warm. See some photos below.

On this late summer day we rented some sit-on-top kayaks in Kissamos and headed out to Falasarna. With Les, John, Jade and Callum we stayed around the Northern part of the bay. First we set course towards Limpet island, and we had some fun crossing between the rocks. We felt the sudden change between the […]
