What To Expect

Select a morning or sunset cruise when you book. Then, on the day, depart your Santorini hotel by air-conditioned minivan and travel to the jetty for your catamaran cruise.

Meet your professional skipper and crew, and find a comfortable spot on the deluxe modern catamaran. Then, sit back and admire Santorini’s caldera and sugar-cube clifftop houses as your vessel pulls away from dock. Relax and enjoy the sea breezes, and take snaps of the views as your catamaran cuts through the waves of the Aegean Sea. As you sail, enjoy the unlimited Santorini wine, Greek beers or sodas available from the onboard bar.

After a short sail across the south part of the island, stop at the Red Beach. Pause here and enjoy time to swim, snorkel or simply sunbathe on the decks.Then, drop anchor at the hot springs beside Nea Kameni, Santorini’s ancient volcano. Step ashore and submerge yourself in the warm pools, whose waters are thought to have medicinal powers that help alleviate skin and bone conditions.

Back aboard, cruise along the coast to Santorini’s southern beaches. Head for the White Beach, and, if you wish, leave the boat to swim in the crystal waters. If you fancy checking out the undersea life, use the supplied snorkeling equipment and set off in search of colorful fish and other underwater sights.

Afterward, return to deck for a delicious lunch or dinner, depending on the cruise time you’ve chosen. Dig into an enticing selection of pork and grilled chicken, Greek salad, pasta salad, fresh bread and fruit.

Then start out on your return journey. If you’ve chosen the sunset cruise, soak up the sight of one of Santorini’s magical sunsets. Snap pictures or just enjoy the moment as the sun sinks below the horizon in a blaze of orange, gold and pink.

Lastly, dock back at the jetty and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

Traveler Tips


Don't wear a white bathing suit if you will swim in the hot springs as the sulfur will stain the suit.
It did get cold on the way back so take a hoodie or extra towel with you.
Lots of opportunities to swim/snorkel, and if you didn’t want to it was perfectly fine to relax on the sun beds and you wouldn’t even feel like you’re waiting for the snorkellers to finish because it’s just so relaxing!

This was an amazing experience. From the staff, to the views, to the food and wine, everything was perfect! This trip was a 10/10! Misha was so helpful, nice, and funny.
Best way to experience Santorini by sea
April_V, Oct 2021
Had a great time on this sunset cruise! We decided to spend our last night on Santorini on this and we didn’t regret it! Although we had bad weather all week, the day we had our tour it was suppose to clear up, we really got lucky! It rained when we were boarding the boat and half the people bailed last min, lucky for us because the people that stayed, as soon as we left the dock, the weather cleared up and we were blessed with great weather at sea! We even had less people on our boat so it felt more private and less crowded than the other boats we saw! Zeus and the gods were on our side! The crew was great and my family had a great time! Dinner was delicious! Thank you so much!
Sunset Spectacular!! Must see!
Chelsey_C, Oct 2021

Santorini boat evening

Captain and crew were lovely. Had a great evening swimming and enjoying the food during the sunset. Quick and easy pick up point and drop off.
Overall expensive for the outcome
Donald_C, Oct 2021
Unique scenery, clean boat with good crew. Hot springs were not hot (couple degrees warmer the sea water) because the spring is not contained so it mixes with the sea. Food served was excellent.
Best part in Santorini
Winnie_C, Oct 2021
The sunset cruise with the Summer Boat is the best decision we made to your Santorini. The cruise is fun, we get some chances to swim in the blue Aegean Sea water. The food is good , the crew members: captain Kostas, crew: Makis, Chrys , Klara are all very fun and helpful. The sunset is just breathtaking! A must do in Santorini.
Great value for a great experience!
Jeremy_E, Oct 2021
