  • Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    1. 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!!

    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. I would definitely recommend a private boat trip with Caldera Yachting if you visit Santorini

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.
