    Great day out. Food was lovely. Little slow to get going waiting on late transfers but boat was great and the staff lovely. Perfect amount of people on the boat they don't overcrowd it at all. Springs same temperature as the other stops so don't expect it to be hot. Sunset was amazing. We would recommend the trip.

  • Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    2. Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    Climb aboard the 74-foot Ocean Voyager or the 80-foot Tahiti catamaran for a 5-hour sunset cruise around Santorini in the Aegean Sea. Set off on a journey of discovery that will first take you to the hot springs, then the Red Beach and finally the White Beach. You will start at the Ammoudi Port of Oia or at your hotel, if you upgrade to include a hotel pickup and drop-off service, and set sail for beautiful Red Beach to swim and snorkel for 30 minutes. Continue to a secluded White Beach, only accessible from the sea, for more swimming and snorkeling in the shadow of the towering white cliffs. Onboard the catamaran, savor a barbecue supper of salads and grilled meat and veggie options. Continue sailing inside the crescent-shaped Caldera, close to the volcano, and enjoy a final dip in the Hot Springs, before sailing back to Oia as the day ends with a spectacular sunset.

    My husband and I had so much fun on this catamaran trip. The views were gorgeous and we stopped twice to get in the water which was so much fun. They barbecued on the boat so we had a delicious, fresh meal. The sunset was obviously the highlight, and it was so special to see it from the water. They also brought us a special cocktail while we watched the sunset. It was also a huge bonus that they pick you up and drop you off as well since transportation to the port can be kind of tricky. Highly recommend!!

What people are saying about Cyclades

Of our 2 week honeymoon in Greece this was the best experience of the whole trip. First of all, Niko as our captain and Anna as our hostess were both incredible. They were so friendly and personable we literally felt like they were family within 10 minutes of starting the trip. They took us to some amazing sites with a great mix of sightseeing, swimming and relaxing on the boat. They always gave us great information about each site and pointed out great spots for pictures. Anna was even a great photographer taking a lot of amazing photos for us! Niko took us to an amazing private swimming spot away from the rest of the boats out that day. The boat itself was gorgeous and clean. The meal cooked on the boat was amazing a great mix of meats and seafood that were really tasty. Overall I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially if you can get Niko and Anna. It felt luxurious and private we could not have asked for anything more.

Family owned boat, had 3 generations working on board. Nice music playing, cushions to sit on, they knew when it was gonna get rough and advised where to sit to avoid getting sprayed. Amazing BarBQ lunch cooked and served on board. Nice swim spot ( had to avoid Jelly fish on our day) The ruins on Delos were incredible! Highly recommend this day trip for anyone interested in ancient history or just getting out for a sail and swim.

Perfect end of the day in Santorini! Crew was helpful and gave good stories about places that we visited with boat. Tasty dinner and drinks while boating! We were 16 people and everyone had enough place to sunbath and relax.

We had a great, almost private tour as there were only four of us. Many thanks to Christina and Nikos, you did a great job. Since we were only in Santorini for 2 days, the tour was perfect

Very enjoyable! Gregory was an excellent tour guide with a lot of useful and interesting information about wine and about Santorini in general. Highly recommend.
