Full description

Cruise aboard a spacious and luxurious catamaran and experience views of Santorini’s landscape. Stop at the day at the famous Red Beach.

Start with pickup and travel by minibus to the marina of Vlychada where the half-day cruise begins. Meet the crew and be welcomed on board with a glass of wine or a soft drink.

Set sail towards the island's colorful beaches while the guide on board will share insights into the history of Santorini and the geological events that created Santorini’s rugged landscape and its surrounding islands.

Your first stop of the day will be at the famous Red Beach. Enjoy time to swim, snorkel, and take pictures of its reddish hues and wild cliff formations. The first mezedes (finger food) are offered when you get back on board to continue your trip.

Admire stunning views of the sandy shores of White Beach, surrounded by bright limestone cliffs, followed by a short stop for pictures of the caves and impressive rock formations of the Indian Rocks, which can only be reached by boat.

Cruise past the 18th-century Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri, located on the southwestern tip of the island, and continue your sailing journey by entering the waters of Santorini’s caldera.

Head towards the renowned volcano for the second stop of the day at the sulfur-rich hot springs. Take a relaxing dip into its healing and detoxifying waters. Back on board, enjoy the view of Santorini, a postcard-perfect portrait of the villages on the cliff.

Set sail again towards the last stop for another swimming and snorkeling opportunity in the crystal-clear waters of Mesa Pigadia. Meanwhile, the crew will be setting the table for the delicious lunch for you to enjoy after your swim.

The menu features BBQ chicken, Neapolitan pasta, Greek Salad, vegetarian meals, such as Greek Ratatouille, a traditional Greek dessert, and an open white wine bar that also serves unlimited soft drinks, and water.

Then, sail back to Vlychada where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation in Santorini.

    This is my first time going on a catamaran in Santorini, and I love it. The weather is a bit chilly since it’s mid-November. I didn’t go swimming, but it didn’t take away the fantastic experience and the views. The crew was delightful and friendly. The food was excellent. Watching the sunset was lovely. I highly recommend this company to anyone. You won’t be disappointed.

    Crew was very helpful and fun to be with. Weather was perfect and the cruise was at good speed. Food was delicious and plentiful. So were the drinks! Only disappointment was that the brochure said we could go for a walk on the volcano, but we did not get opportunity to do that.

    Excellent cruise for a short period of time we stayed in Santorini. Staff are very accommodating and always making sure they meet our needs. We had a great time sailing around the island. Highly recommended while in Santorini! I will surely book this again on my next visit to Santorini.
