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.

We only got one day on Santorini and this was by far the best way to spend it. Red beach, white beach, caldera- the water felt amazing and we snorkeled for the first time and saw so many little fish! The meal was delicious, as was the dessert and final cocktail with the amazing sunset. I don't know if I could say enough about this excursion. So very worth the money.
Spectacular sunset and service
Anne_S, Jul 2022
The crew were all fantastic, food amazing and the view- wow! Very attentive and friendly. The fact that we got to jump in the water and experience the beaches was great too

Fantastic experience from pick up to drop off
Sarah_T, Aug 2022
Very informative friendly staff great food well looked after nothing too much trouble sunset was just beautiful
Bad communication from Sunset Oia but good crew
marisadvm, Jul 2022
Great time with Alex, George and Irini. Horrible communication with Sunset Oia. The only reason we knew when our pick up time was was because we went into the storefront to ask. We waited 45-60 min after the sunset to be allowed to dock. We understand someone needs to be last but we were never told this. While we were picked up from the front of our hotel, we were dropped off with a 10 min walk. When we went into the storefront to inquire, we were told this was due to one way streets. Again we were never told this would happen. We were told a manager would reach out to us, yet we have heard nothing so far.

Almost Perfect
Jelisa_D, Aug 2022
This should’ve been a 5 star review the pickup, the food, the crew, the music all amazing! Our drop off was the only problem. This includes hotel pickup and drop off and even says it’ll be the same pickup and drop off point. This was not the case our driver dropped us off about 5-10 minutes from our hotel. When I complained and said we do not know where we are he said “just go that way it’s only a minute I have a 50 minute drive” that’s not what we paid for as well as the safety concerns. This was very disappointing. I actually canceled another tour another tour and booked this one because the pickup and drop off were centralized locations vs the hotel. I even reached out to the company prior to confirm they would pick up and drop at the hotel. I would recommend the experience but be aware you may not get the pickup and drop off that’s promised.

Highly Recommend!
Kristin_W, Jul 2022
The highlight of our trip! The boat was extremely clean and staff were friendly and accommodating. This was all-inclusive with transportation, food, drinks, towels, snorkels, etc. After three swimming stops, the evening ended with sunset over the water and incredible view of Oia. Highly recommend!
Amazing cruise!!
kelly_v, Aug 2022
This cruise was so amazing! The staff were very friendly and fun and did a great job explaining the different beaches and areas we went to. The food was incredible! Would highly recommend.
Best way to see the Santorini Sunset
Jose_G, Aug 2022
Excellent sunset cruise. Crew was professional, and attentive. Food was very good. Drinks plentiful and the vibe was fantastic.
Poor Communication/ Missed Cruise
Matthew_W, Jul 2022
Waiting on a refund. Driver didn't show up/ couldn't find him. He contacted my hotel which took a message. The tour company had my number. Why didn't they just call me? We missed the cruise because of this and we're not able to reschedule.

All of it was fantastic...
Liya_B, Aug 2022
All of it was fantastic and wish could do it again .. it’s a must when visiting santorini! You really get an amazing sunset view and full day boating experience
Not a luxury experience
Julia_G, Sep 2022
The entire experience was just OK. The boat is clean and staff was extremely nice and welcoming. Plenty of wine and beer and the food was very good. In terms of luxury, there was none. Not sure why it was categorized as luxury sailing catamaran. You share the experience with a group of about 15 so it’s not private or romantic, which we knew in advance. The music was kept to a minimum except at the end when we went back so it was a boring at times. We didn’t see any hot springs and made no stops at the beaches, just next to them. No information about what we were looking at either.
Sailing into Amoudi Bay...
Aurora_R, Oct 2022
Sailing into Amoudi Bay in the evening. It was magical! Loved the swimming. George and the host were very accomodsting. The Captain a bit stand offish

Must do this sunset catamaran
Ana_C, Jul 2022
This sunset catamaran was exceptional and memorable. If you want a beautiful experience in Santorini you must book this cruise. The captain and crew were super welcoming and child friendly! They were super hospitable and just full of good vibes. They were accommodating to anything we needed. Thank you!
The Best Sunset Cruise
Marissa_K, Sep 2022
My husband and I had the best time on this sunset catamaran cruise! We booked this for our last night in Santorini and it was the perfect way to end our honeymoon. The captain included several stops for swimming and snorkeling, and we had an absolutely delicious BBQ meal for dinner! He took us to a perfect spot for the sunset to end the trip. 10/10!

Cons: less than perfect...
Violeta_H, Sep 2022
Cons: less than perfect boarding experience. This company has a huge operation going with many vans coming in and many boats going out the same port. They just let you wait & bake in the heat for 30+ mins, so all the groups can be gathered and boarded. Pros: once you board - it’s all fun and relaxation from there. Our crewman George was a born showman and a fabulous grill-master. Advice: place a bunch of sun umbrellas, hire beer servers and offer some cooling options (or speed up your boarding process).
Awesome sunset sail with sails
KenB, Sep 2022
While it felt like a catamaran cruse factory at the start...and the 90. Minute van ride was a bit tedious, once on board, the trip was magic. 3 stops to swim, yummy dinner and they even made mine without onions. First mate George really made everyone feel special and Capt Spyro put the sails up for the final stretch which really made the cruise even more wonderful. We were last to dock at the end which was even better. Awesome time.. awesome sunset.. awesome crew.
Would recommend
Amy_M, Sep 2022
Highly recommend it. Picked us up from and dropped us back to our hotel. Being able to watch the sunset from the boat was an unforgettable experience. The food was great.
