If you're planning on taking a cruise while in Santorini, then this is the one!
We sailed on Aug 22, 2017. The ship was a catamaran operated by Spiridakos Sailing Cruises with a crew of 3 Mohamed, Stathis, and Violeta. The passengers consisted of 12 adults and 1 child.
Swimming stops: We had 3 swimming stops, 2 of which were absolutely beautiful, the water was clean, clear, and warm.
Food and Drinks: For dinner, we were served grilled chicken breasts, shrimp, Greek salad, spaghetti, and bread. The food was cooked aboard the ship by the crew while the passengers swam. The beverage selection consisted of water, soda, local wine, and Hellas Beer.
Sunset cruise: This portion of the cruise was absolutely phenomenal. Viewing the sun setting on a ship in the Aegean...you just can't beat that. The view was absolutely beautiful in my opinion, it even tops the sunset view from Oia.
The crew: They were the best! 2nd best part of this cruise, 2nd only to the sunset . Mo Mohamed and Stathis knew all the good angles from which to take pics during the sunset and were super kind despite the fact that I kept addressing Stathis as Stathos. Violeta made sure the cabin was clean at all times and that none of us were thirsty at any point. They truly were professional, hospitable, courteous, and friendly.
Size of the ship: A friend of mine had booked the pirate ship cruise on the same day. His wife had mentioned that while there was plenty of space for everyone, there were only so many good camera angles to take pics and that 2 women kept hogging the good angles. NOT a problem on the catamaran. With only 12 passengers, there was plenty of time for everyone to take all the pics they wanted.
I'd give this cruise more stars if I could, but I guess the only thing I can do is sign up for this trip again next time I'm in Santorini.
Efcharisto to the wonderful crew!
Fabulous!!! - Best excursion in Santorini. Book it - worth every penny. Had a blast - A bit windy, but still amazing. The food was incredible - all prepared in front of you while cruising. Our guide was fabulous - even the shuttle driver - was so informative. Highly recommend this Cruise. Cheers!!
What a fantastic sailing trip! The Catamaran was brand new ... so clean and nice! The crew was knowledgeable and friendly ... and the food was absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend this team!
Loved the sunset cruise. Would recommend it highly to anyone. It was a highlight of our our trip! The staff was really nice and fun and the food was delicious as well as the wine!! Fun experience I would do again in a heartbeat. Loved that there were only 16 passengers. It was s nice and intimate and we met everyone! Thanks so much!!!
This was the best thing we did in Santorini - crew was so accommodating and the food was fantastic!
Spectacular! We went on the dinner cruise and saw the Sun kiss the Sea! Food was excellent! Good crew!
Had a great time on our sunset cruise in Santorini! Crew was amazing as was the food and the tour. The water was a bit rough that day but the crew was fantastic ensuring everyone was careful and moved around the catamaran safely.
We did the smaller group which we enjoyed much more than the bigger groups that were out at the Caldera.
Excellent time, highly recommend!
Amazing day, the staff are enthusiastic and its a beautiful fun day. A must do in Santorini!
The best excursion we took on our 10 day Mediterranean Cruise! We were picked up in Fira and our driver Alex was amazing with showing us a lot of the island by van. Our crew on the Caldera catamaran Lianna, Maria, Leo and Captain Zannis were phenomenal! The best way to see and learn about Santorini!
Absolutely perfect experience from the incredible boat to the equally attentive staff that made this one of our best experience during our trip to Santorini
This was one of the highlights of our vacation. What a blast! Due to some staffing complication, the van sent to pick us up was a little late, but we still got to the docks on time and everything from that point on was amazing. The crew on the catamaran were all very friendly and accommodating. The meal they cooked was delicious and impressive since they had so little space to work in--shrimp, chicken, pasta, salad, bread, etc. I would highly recommend this tour.
Must do trip. Would have liked 1 less swim stop and add a visit to the volcano island to walk to the volcano. Apart from that food amazing, captain and crew great, and you meet lovely people. Swimming in the volcanic springs is fantastic, but you must be a reasonable swimmer
Pick up from our hotel was on time. Everything was amazing: The Crew, Food, music, brand new boat etc. Highly recommend!
This was an excellent experience. The crew was so accommodating and the food was amazing.
This is a must-do tour! The views of the caldera are truly breathtaking and the sunset finale brought tears to our eyes. We were a group of 16 people coming from all parts of the globe . The catamaran had enough space for all of us. To swim in the aegean sea is delightful, but it is totally okay to remain on the boat if you prefer. Stops have perfect timing for enjoyment. The crew was amazing, super professional and super friendly. Captain Isidoro is a wonderful person, as are Corina and Balbi. They would make everything and anything to make you feel at home. They are super friendly and have the special talent of making you feel confy and relaxed among people you have never seen before! My husband and I took the sunset tour. It's windy and gets a little chilly after the sunset, bring a light waterproof jacket and don't miss this unique experience!
Just like many of the other reviews...this is a must do. This company did a fantastic job. Hot Springs aren't what you think, but swimming in the Aegean is crazy to wrap your head around. Food was one of the best meals we had in Greece. They should keep the beer and wine on the deck with the customers
This trip was up there amongst the best trips we've ever made, partly due to the Aussie crowd we met on the cat!
The organisation was very slick and to the minute, although you do need to keep checking your emails for up to date info as times of the trip can vary slightly according to weather and tide.
The cat, Happy Day and crew Isadoro, Pablo and Corina, were such friendly, helpful people but very strict, and quite rightly too, about safety. The cat was spotless and how the food was prepared in such a small galley was a wonder. It was SUPERB! and I mean superb. Chicken breasts with a spicy sauce, breaded swordfish steaks, huge prawns, veggie pasta, tatziki. hummous, bread, greek salad and unlimited wine, beer or alcohol free drinks.
I have to be honest here and say the hot springs were a let down, more luke warm in small patches rather than hot, and not at all what we expected and swimming in it ruined my costume, but we laugh about it now! By then you have had enough to drink that you don't care much anyway!
So thanks to everyone involved in that marvellous day!
Must do experience if you are in Santorini. We were well looked after by Captain Yannis and all the crew Olga, Costas and Vagelis on the Bonita. The food served for lunch was really fresh, tasty and plentiful. There was time to swim and to enjoy the amazing views of Santorini from the sea. My only wish was that it lasted a bit longer. Highly recommended
BEST PART OF MY TRIP. JUST SITTING BACK ENJOYING THE VIEW ND HAVING SOMEONE ELSE WORRY ABOUT OUR NEEDS.
Highly recommended. Very good tour, good food and drinks. The captain and tour guide were very engaging and informative, with a good sense of humor. The views of the sunset were magnificent! Would do it again.
This is an awesome experience! Worth every single penny! We booked the sunset sailing tour and it was fantastic! The catamaran, the crew, the views, the swims, the wonderful dinner (Corina is truly a fantastic cook) and the other 14 fun people on board! We were on the "Happy Day" boat and couldn't wish for a better crew! They were so much fun and took really good care of us all! Isidoro, Pablo and Corina are a fantastic team and made this sailing tour the highlight of our holiday! Thanks for everything! Will definitely book again! :)
