    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.

We were served a delicious lunch and bottomless drinks. We stopped for a swim at White Beach, Red beach and the Caldera springs. The crew were informative and courteous.

It was the highlight of our Santorini Trip. Special mention to Captain Ziko and the 2 crew members, Chyrsa and Valentino. They were very accomodating and professional. The yacht was clean. The activities we did were not dragging. The food was good. Overall, a fun experience that is a must try in Santorini. Shout out to Spiridakos Caldera 2 boat.

Amazing experience! Food was delicious and crew was wonderful. This was the highlight of our whole time in Santorini. My only complaint is the size of the group was a little large for the size of the boat during covid times. We had to sit side by side, squeezed together to accommodate the 20 people.

Amazing and unique experience! Ideal for spending time for two or with friends/family, in the incredible sea of Santorini. Great food, relaxed and fun atmosphere!

Very nice and helpful crew! There are pills on board in case someone gets sick from the waves.
