  • Santorini: Private Romantic Catamaran Cruise

    2. Santorini: Private Romantic Catamaran Cruise

    This private sunset catamaran cruise departs in the morning or afternoon from Ammoudi and takes you and your friends or family on a private trip inside the caldera of Santorini. This tour begins with an awe-inspiring trip to the volcano, a true miracle of nature, and continues with a therapeutic swim and a natural spa in the renowned Hot Springs, where the sea water is significantly warmer than in Santorini and is mixed with sulfur, offering a unique mud bath to swimmers! Then, the boat sails towards Aspronissi Island and passes by the Indian Rock and the Venetian Lighthouse, giving you spectacular views of the landscapes. The next stop is Mesa Pigadia, located right next to the unique White Beach, where visitors will enjoy a BBQ full of Greek flavors and local wine.

    Paulo and Katarina were amazing hosts -- friendly, helpful, great sailors and great cooks! Of all the money I spent in Santorini (too much!), this was probably the best value. Paying up for the PRIVATE catamaran tour gives you the flexibility to choose your destinations, how long you stay at each, etc. For example, we were able to go to the white Island, swim up to its beach and spend nearly an hour there swimming and exploring the island. Apparently, because of the wind, this is a rarity. We were the only people on the island or even anywhere near. It was a true paradise experience.

    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.

  • Santorini Ultimate Sailing Experience with Meal

    There are two options available. The day cruise offers you a unique chance to admire Santorini's beauty, sailing along the deep blue waters of the island. Starting from the Red Beach for a swim, followed by sailing to the White Beach, the Black Mountain and the big Light House south of the Caldera, as you head to the Hot Springs. When anchored, a delicious lunch is served on board with wine and dessert. The Sunset Cruise will exploit your senses, not only because of the imposing beauty of the Caldera, while sailing the sea route from Red Beach, the White Beach, the Black Mountain, and the Hot Springs, but also because of the impressive beauty and spectacular colors of the sunset. At the best hour of the day, the sunset time, a sumptuous dinner is served complete with wine and dessert.

    We hired a private boat as a family of 4 and everything was exceptional from start to finish. A private minibus picked us up promptly at the time stated from our villa and took us to the port where we were met by the Captain and his first mate. 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. I would definitely recommend a private boat trip with Caldera Yachting if you visit Santorini

    Simply spectacular. The private 7-hour cruise isn't cheap but was worth every dollar. We heard that Captain Anastasia is one of only two female captains in the Santorini catamaran fleet, and after riding with her, we have no doubt she has earned it and is one of the best. The cruise was beautiful, and she was an exceptional pilot and host. She consistently asked us what how we liked parts of the trip and adjusted her sailing to accommodate us. With the longer duration than most of the other cruises, the privacy of a cruise to ourselves, and an amazing set of sites, food, and the sunset, this was a highlight of our visit to Santorini. Highest recommendation, you will not regret the investment!

  • Santorini: Akrotiri Guided Tour, Motorboat Cruise, & Lunch

    6. Santorini: Akrotiri Guided Tour, Motorboat Cruise, & Lunch

    You will be picked up by private car or minivan and taken to the archeological site. Akrotiri is a fantastically preserved prehistoric city that remained buried under volcanic material for almost 4000 years! You will have the chance to walk around the preserved buildings and see details such as doors, windows, stairs, and paved streets. You will then be taken to the little port of Vlihada by car or minivan, where the motorboat will be waiting. Together with the experienced captain and crew, you will have the chance to explore the unique volcanic beaches of the island, sail around the caldera and the volcano and have lunch in a traditional taverna in the nearby island of Thirasia, right across Santorini. The tour ends at the port and you will then be taken back to the meeting point.

    What a fabulous tour! Thank you so much Georgia for the fantastic explanations about Akrotiri. The tour was rounded off with us being picked up by Irene and taken to our motor boat for the afternoon. Miltos was exceptional. We learnt so much about the islands and Volcanos. He showed us all the different beaches and rocks including the impressive ‚Iceberg‘ and the lovely blue colours of the sea near the local taverna where we ate in Thirassia. The boat ride after dinner to take in the sunset by Oia rounded off this perfect day. Thank you for helping us make some lovely memories!

  • Santorini: 30 Minute Private Helicopter Flight

    7. Santorini: 30 Minute Private Helicopter Flight

    Soar above the picturesque landscapes of Santorini and the surrounding sea on an unforgettable helicopter trip over the island. Spot the volcanic formations of the caldera and the charming, whitewashed villages like Fira and Oia on a thrilling ride over the Aegean gem. Spend longer in the air checking out the caldera and Nea Kameni and see a selection of Santorini’s top beaches such as the red and black sand. Ogle the beach's red-tinged volcanic sand lapped by the sea and look out for hideaway coves and secluded bays. Hover over the north end of the island. Your aerial perspective provides a great vantage point to snap a photo or two of the distinctive sugar cube stacks of houses and blue-domed churches in the iconic Greek village of Oia. Fly back to the helipad, taking in a last glance over the rocky black cliffs rising up from the brilliant blue waters before you land.

    Absolutely incredible experience. You can’t beat the view of Santorini from the air. The process was extremely easy with our driver picking us up and driving us to the helicopter with no issues. The pilot was Roman who was extremely nice, helpful and professional. Took us on a beautiful flight and was extremely informative about the history and facts regarding the island. The views he was able to show us in the helicopter were incredible. I would recommend this activity to anyone traveling to Santorini.

An unforgettable experience! Paolo (captain) & Katerina (host) made us feel like jet set for a day, with impeccable hospitality on board. We choose the option of an alternative route (a lot of catamaran's do the same route), and we did not regret it. Swimming, snorkeling & lunch in a quiet bay - what a joy! Lunch was superb & full greek style: tasteful & too much you can eat. Additional plus: don't worry about drinking a glass of wine, there is pickup & drop off included in the package.

Perhaps it depends on the crew and boat you get, but this was a 5 star experience for us. Amazing day of sailing, swimming, a wonderful fresh dinner, and unique sightseeing with a remarkable sunset. So much fun!

Beautiful day, thanks to Phil and Aris for being kind helpful but not pushy. Great lunch and beautiful sunset under the caldera.
