  • 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!!

    Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, and then journey by air-conditioned minivan to board a luxury catamaran and take a 5-hour cruise off the coast of Santorini. Experience the romance and beauty of the island as you set sail from the southern port of Vlychada. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and follow the coast to the red sands of Red Beach. Jump in for a swim in the shallow waters of a private beach, if you desire. Benefit from the services and amenities of a fully equipped vessel, including complimentary towels and snorkeling equipment. Venture below the imposing Indian Rocks and marvel at the sea caves and rock formations close to an old Venetian lighthouse. Get breathtaking views of the volcanic landscape as you travel through the middle of the caldera.

    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.

  • Santorini Caldera: Catamaran Cruise with Lunch/Dinner & Bar

    5. Santorini Caldera: Catamaran Cruise with Lunch/Dinner & Bar

    Start your relaxing sunset cruise from old port Ammoudi and make a visit to Thirassia Island. Set sail to Palea Kameni for a swim at the famous Hot Springs, stop by the volcano for snorkeling or swimming, and see the Black Rock of the Indian, the White Beach, and the Red Beach. While sailing along the beautiful coastline, feel breathless as you admire the unique Caldera and the spectacular colors of the world–famous Santorinean sunset, before you enter the port of Vlychada. Opt to include either lunch or dinner served on board, complete with an open bar.

    The cruise was excellent, staff very informative and the lunch was delicious. The bar had only one beer and one white wine to choose from but many soft drink options. Only reason we give 4 stars is the company never contacted us about pick up time/place as they were supposed to. We needed to call up ourselves the morning of the booking.

This was a great sailing tour, we've been to Santorini before and I'd say this was just as good as any other popular tour companies on the island. Food was good, drinks were plenty, transportation was on time and the boat was not too crowded which made it feel covid safe. Swimming spots were both really nice, I would definitely book this again.

Amazing experience! Food was delicious and crew was wonderful. This was the highlight of our whole time in Santorini.
