  1. Hire a private boat: There are several companies in Chania that offer private boat charters to Balos such as Chania Private Boats. You can choose a boat that suits your needs and budget, and they will provide a captain to take you to Balos. This option can be quite expensive, but it offers the convenience and flexibility of having your own private boat.

  2. Join a private tour: Another option is to join a private boat tour to Balos. Several tour operators in Chania offer private tours, where you can join a small group and enjoy a more personalized experience. This option can be more affordable than hiring a private boat on your own.

  3. Rent a boat: If you have a boating license and experience, you can rent a boat and drive it yourself to Balos. This option is more affordable than hiring a private boat, but it requires a certain level of skill and experience.

It's important to note that the sea conditions around Balos can be rough at times, especially in the afternoon. It's recommended to visit Balos early in the morning to avoid the crowds and to ensure a smoother ride. Additionally, it's essential to pack food and water, as there are no facilities or restaurants at Balos.
