What To Expect

Whether you choose the daytime tour (10:30am) or the sunset tour (3:30pm), you'll begin your 5-hour trip on the water. 

Travel to the marina, where you'll board your catamaran and set out on the Aegean Sea. The day's first stop is at Red Beach, famous for its red cliffs and sand, then on to White Beach, where you can go snorkeling and swimming. Sail past Indian Rock and the Venetian Lighthouse, then enter the volcanic caldera. Stop at the island's natural hot springs for a dip and get views of Oia and Therasia Island. 

Daytime travelers will enjoy a full snack spread and sunset tour. Drinks included.

One of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Its distinct red coloration is caused by the rich in minerals and iron soil. Stop to take some photos.

Traveler Tips

They do have blankets, but I would recommend a jacket for sunset cruise as it gets chilly as sun goes down.
This catamaran sunset cruise is a must if you are in Santorini!
Don’t choose any other company for there were many catamaran around and those run by the company were the newest and had the best equipment and probably the best crew but that I couldn’t know for wasn’t on their catamaran.

Unforgettable santorini day!
Kritika_S, May 2022
This is a must do in santorini, the crew was so hospitable and welcoming throughout. The food was delicious (grilled chicken, pasta, tzatziki, green salad, dolmadas etc). Our glass was never left empty, with plenty of santorini white wine and soft drinks to go around. We stopped at all the key sites with swimming near the red beach, white beach with snorkelling and geothermal waters near the volcano (about a 70m swim away from the boat with floaties). The water was cool in May but you adjusted fast. Couldn’t recommend this experience enough, what a great positive energy on board!

Dream come true
Dorothy_S, May 2022
Wonderful experience. Beautiful sunset, swam in sea and saw island from different views. Crew was as so nice and food and drinks were outstanding
Do this catamaran tour! It will not disappoint!
Sebastian_G, May 2022
This was by far one of our highlights of our vacation in Santorini. Captain Eddie, crew members Ada, Katerina and Hasan were all so gracious, informative and experienced. Love them all and will do this again!!!!! They were all fantastic. Fun and safety are a priority with them!
Had a great time. Great...
oriettacarias, May 2022
Had a great time. Great crew. If you are staying in Oia, maybe take a cruise out of Oia. Took about 45 to 1 hour to pick up all passengers.
Felt sea sick but still had a good time
Elizabeth_A, May 2022
Fantastic tour, I choose the sunset version, and it was the best way to end my time in Santori. I got a bit seasick going to our first location, as we were going against the waves but was alright when we were going with the waves, the crew made sure to check on me, which was nice. The food was nice, not that I expected it to be bad but not that nice. Highly recommend it even if you get seasick because once it passes it will be worth it.
Hen party boat trio
Laura_W, May 2022
The boat trip was exactly how we expected. The crew were great, especially Elena. The food was delicious and the wine too. Would definitely recommend.
Highly recommend this tour operator
Sarah_K, May 2022
This excursion is incredibly well-organized and the staff were fantastic. I highly recommend using this tour operator. The crew on our boat (Captain Stavros, Andreas, Alice, and Elena) were all very kind and funny. They shared interesting information about the island. Hotel pickup/drop-off and communication leading up to the trip was also great. As for the excursion itself, the itinerary they provide is pretty accurate. We ended up not going to the hot springs and going to a different swim spot instead (the group was given the decision) because they're crowded and not everyone was allowed to go in. Heads up, if you do want to go in, you should wear a black bathing suit as any other colors will get ruined. The lunch food was actually very tasty!
worth the view
Michael_F, May 2022
It was a blast and the sunset was beautiful. They showed us several places around the island. The different rock structures because they do have a red beach and the beach is red. They also showed us Black beach and yes the beach is black. It has to do with the island is volcanic rock. The lunch/dinner served was really good as well and plenty to go around.

Good Experience, More Drink Variety
Whit_J, May 2022
Fun day out on the water, we went in May so we knew we would not be swimming (pack a jacket). We were told to arrive an hour early and just sat in the office for 45 minutes waiting on the bus. The crew was friendly and the views are beautiful. Biggest complaint is that there is no other alcohol except white wine, so it might be worth paying the extra $30 for the more expensive trips. Overall good experience, definitely should do one of these if you’re in Santorini.
Beautiful sunset tour with one “but”
Dennis_D, May 2022
Me and the Missus took the sunset tour. All was nice with pickup, food, stops, and the sunset was beautiful. The crew was energetic and nice as well. The only thing I would like to leave as improvement point is to not call it a “semi-private” tour. We were with 24 people total, thats not semi private (thats 4-8 people). The organiser should change that in the title since it’s actually misleading.

Best pet of Santorini

This was the best part of our Santorini trip! Captain Eddie, Ada and Dula were awesome! The views were beautiful, the food was great and they made sure we always had a drink in our hands.

Great experience with knowledgeable and friendly wirkers!
Dawn_H, May 2022
The beautiful ride on the catamaran and beautiful sea waters! Great lunch served. The girls were very knowledgeable about everywhere they took us around the island
Great time but hope for good weather
Joel_W, May 2022
This is a great option to see the coastline and hear some of the history of the island. They also take you right next to the center of the volcano so you can jump in the sulfur water if you want (what they call the “hot springs”). Also very close quarters on the boat so be ready to get to know your fellow travelers. The only bummer on our trip in early May was the weather ended up being very cloudy and with it being only 65 degrees F it was very cold on the boat. Also did not get to see the sunset because it was cloudy. Still a great experience especially in the summer I would imagine.
Best Excursion Ever
Ben_A, May 2022
We had a fantastic time on this excursion. The crew went over and above to make us feel welcome and at home.

On time pickup, friendly workers, lovely boat, good food, beautiful scenery! Just wonderful! Would definitely do this cruise again.
Marcus_B, May 2022
Amazing experience, great host and crew kept the wine flowing to the guests that wanted and the food was excellent. Well worth it would love to do it again.
Average to just OK!
farzana_n, May 2022
So the 3 stars is for the people on our cruise who were alot of fun.. this was honestly the most unorganised cruise I've been to.. pick up was late.. then again a wait in the bus then another person got angry with them and said why are you wasting our time then they took us for our cruise.. food was average n cold.. don't expect much variety on the drinks.. its worth it for the maybe the view but that has nothing to do the company.. it was just because santorini is beautiful.. I just feel you can go for it with minimum expectations.. don't expect too much.. its nothing like the way they have explained their tour on the website!
Average at best
Yara_V, May 2022
The sunset was beautiful. But the service was not as expected. We are four girls of 20 and were looking forward to a relaxing boatday. However, we were consistently declined drinks and they watered our wine several times. The staff seemed very stressed and this resulted in a less enjoyable experience.
Alice and the crew were amazing.
jeff_d, May 2022
The crew, the food and the boat were amazing . The sightseeing was great. Would love to it again we really oce it
