The crew was great. We were picked up near our hotel and taken to the dock. The crew outlined the trip and made us felt at home on the boat. They cooked up a fresh meal for us and kept us well hydrated. We were offered the chance to jump in and they had towels ready for us. We finished with a great view of the sunset. Super day.

Very good experience!! To do !! The catamaran is very beautiful and perfectly maintained, the team is on top! The simple and qualitative meal, a good barbecue prepared on the boat! I put 4 stars because done in mid-March, despite the good weather, it was cold on the way back and it was a bit long. A good hour of navigation less, it was not a problem at this time of year (with a price accordingly). In summer I would have given 5 stars, that's for sure, and probably wanted to extend the crossing by a good hour!! Maybe even 6* with coffee and hot drinks as a bonus as it was a bit lacking. It's not missing much to make it perfect, but don't forget your sweater!

The entire staff were very helpful the entire day. We were provided shuttle service from and to our hotel in Oia. The crew of the boat greeted us and started our cruise with a round of Greek beer. We had 14 in our group and everyone got along great. The food was excellent and there was plenty to go around. Plenty of mussels, shrimp, sausage, chicken, fava beans, greek salad, and stuffed grape leaves served in a cove shielded from the wind. We were able to swim in the caldera despite it being December. The staff were very friendly and made us all feel at home on the boat.
