The Cretan Sea is the southern deep-water part of the Aegean Sea. It is located between the Cyclades and Dodecanese islands to the north and east and Crete to the south. The southeastern part of the Aegean Sea by ancient authors was called the Karpathos Sea on the island of Karpathos, lying between Crete and Rhodes.

In the north, it borders the Aegean Sea, apparently because of this there is often a misconception that the Cretan Sea is part of the Aegean. The Cretan Sea is very warm, with temperatures reaching 26 degrees in summer. The sea gently steps onto the shore, therefore the entrance to the water is gradual, not abrupt. At the end of summer, the velvet season begins here.
