What To Expect

After pickup at your hotel, travel by minivan to the Vlychada port and climb aboard a luxury catamaran—among the largest sailing vessels available on the island. Cruise around the coast, stopping first for a swim session on Santorini’s distinctive Red Beach.

Continue on to the White Beach, where you can swim, relax on the sand, or explore the clear waters of the Aegean with provided snorkeling equipment. Back on board, sate your appetite with a fresh Greek barbecue featuring your choice of meat or a vegetarian option served with a variety of traditional side dishes and desserts (see below for menu). Top off the feast with unlimited drinks from the bar including local white wine, beer, water, soft drinks, coffee, or tea.

Relax on spacious decks and catch some of the last rays of the sun while admiring views of the Akrotiri Minoan ruins and the neighboring island of Aspronisi. Head toward the dramatic caldera that forms the center of Santorini's ancient volcano, and stop for a relaxing soak in natural volcanic hot springs. With your muscles nice and relaxed, journey to the final stop, just below the clifftop village of Oia. From this famous vantage point, watch an unforgettable sunset with a cool drink in hand and the Aegean breeze against your skin.

Step back onto solid ground at Amoudi, where a minivan is waiting to shuttle you back to your hotel.

Traveler Tips

For the white and red beaches, you don't actually go to the beach itself but rather see them from the distance and can swim from the boat, so you are not technically on the beach.
Time is limited on vacation and I’d rather not spend it on a minibus.
I’d definitely recommend this tour for anyone coming to Santorini.

It was such a fun time. Well organized and plenty of authentic Greek dishes. Amazing!! Thank you for everything you did!!! It was a smooth ride and I met a lot of people.
Great time with wife

They were great and we, along with everyone else on the boat, had an amazing time. The crew was amazingly accommodating and friendly.
Casey_L, May 2022
Highlight of our Santorini trip! The staff was so kind and helpful! I even lost my hat and they turned the boat around to try and get it for me! We had a BLAST! It was way longer than other “cruises” we have done before. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Surpassed all expectations, a must do in Santorini
Fausto_B, May 2022
From start to finish the experience was out of this world! Can't praise the crew enough, very professional, food was unbelievably good and so was the open bar that came with it! A big thank you, we will be back 🙏 ❤️ xxx
FANTASTIC experience...a MUST do!
Joel_H, May 2022
Catamaran and the crew were GREAT! We probably would look for a cruise next time that had less people, it was a little crowded. Food was delicious, the cruise locations were absolutely beautiful! Wish we would have been able to dock closer to the beaches/locations but overall it was a FANTASTIC experience!
12/10 recommend!!!
Vicky_B, May 2022
This was our first time in santorini and we booked this boat tour! It was absolutely amazing. The crew was amazing, so nice, accommodating and fun! We got to swim, snorkel, drink, eat (the food was so good!) and watch the beautiful sunset. We also learned a little bit about each stop we made which was really cool to hear! We highly recommend this tour! Do it!
Todd_J, May 2022
Excellent experience! Helen, Constantina, Gustav, and Thanos took excellent care of everyone. The food was good, the views amazing. Highly recommend. It is a small boat, so if you get motion sickness, plan accordingly.
Highly recommended!
Marilena_B, May 2022
This cruise exceeded our expectations! The crew was very fun and professional. Great food by George! Marilena was very helpful and caring, our captain had the best music! You can swim in 3 different spots. They provide towels! Bring sweaters as the night in May get very cold
The best trip ever!
Deborah_L, May 2022

Vicci_H, May 2022
Food good, boat very clean and staff very friendly. Personally would have liked a bit more information about where we were and a couple less people in the boat but otherwise it was a lovely trip
