Travel to the marina, where you'll board your catamaran and set out on the Aegean Sea.

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.

Great views, great crew, great food!
Kellie_W, Dec 2021
Very inviting team! The food was cooked, fresh on the boat by the crew, and it was Great!!! The hot springs are definitely still cool in the winter, but you CAN get in. Bring your bathing suit in case even if you are unsure. You may regret not getting in.
Great experience
ADEL_A, Nov 2021
Highly recommended It’s amazing and food is delicious Sunset time was wonderful and Swimming pool chosen were great
Amazing trip - YOLO 😊
Michelle_C, Nov 2021
From pickup to drop off, everyone associated with our cruise was wonderful! Our captain was very friendly and gave great explanations for each point of interest along our journey. The food was fantastic (and I’m pretty finicky) and the company made it even more enjoyable. This was most definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Santorini! If you do it, definitely plan to get in the water at the hot springs! The water upon entry was crisp (we took our cruise in mid November) but it did warm up a bit near the springs. Point is, just do it - you only live once and it’s worth it!
Sunset cruise to remember
Fay, Nov 2021
On the day of this tour, we were fetched on time by a small van and drove us straight to the pier. All staff were professional and friendly personality. The sunset cruise was fun, relaxing and informative. It was an amazing experience to explore santorini island by sea. Hubby and I enjoyed the sun, sea, cruise and sunset watch. Thank you Spiridakos- crew of Caldera II

Sad birthday
Emely_V, Nov 2021
Honestly I’ve been on many excursions and I absolutely love catamaran excursion but this one by far was the worst. The waves were super choppy and of course people were getting sick. Obviously that’s out of their control but the tour guide was terrible. We couldn’t hear with the music playing in background then they would turn it off and it seemed like they were uncoordinated. The only option we had was wine and it seemed like they cut the men off before the women and I didn’t feel like drinking at all due to to difficulty obtaining a beverage. The “hot” springs weren’t so hot and they said we had 10-15 min and almost convinced us not to do it because of possible allergic reaction. I was extremely disappointed as I went on my birthday and expected more …
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Dear Emely, We are very sad that you did not enjoy your cruise. Pleasant weather indeed is playing a significant role in how much one will enjoy the cruise. We have passed your feedback to our crew related to the music. About the wine being the only option of alcoholic beverage this is true, as listed in the description of your cruise. Each guest can consume a limited amount of wine, of up to 4 glasses, in order to comply with the security regulations set by police port authority. The hot spings are a natural phenomenon and the temperature can vary from time to time, due to seasons changing. Related to allergies, our crew advises that the springs have a concentration of sulfur and iron, in order to prevent people who are allergic to these elements from being exposed. We remain at your disposal for further support. With warm regards, Spiridakos Sailing Cruises
Great time
Heather_P, Nov 2021
A wonderful experience from beginning to end. Saw beautiful beaches, swam, and had a wonderful lunch
The WORST tour !!! TERRIBLE !!
joyce_b, Oct 2021
Aviator and this tour are a joke! Unsafe conditions. If it’s raining or windy - 49km/Hr wind you will have to go!!! Otherwise you will have to pay for it anyways !!! They won’t cancel the tour due to unsafe conditions or terrible weather! I lost my wedding ring there!!! I requested a refund and they offer a 25% discount on my next tour….. are you kidding me ??? They said nobody else complained - which is not true because I know my friend also complained with them. It’s a boat ride tour and everybody was inside the cabin because it was ridiculously windy. The hot springs - it’s not hot at all. The food is ok …. They opened one package of cookies to split with everybody. We all had ONE cookie !! Just don’t book this tour. There are other tours way less expensive and way better.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Dear Joyce, Thank you for the constructive feedback. We are really sad that you were not satisfied with your cruise and that you lost your wedding ring. We are not responsible for the possessions our guests choose to bring onboard. We always take into consideration the weather conditions and the instructions of the police port authority. We never depart if the authorities have not approved it. You have chosen to change the date of your cruise and we have exceptionally accepted it without any additional cost. On both dates, the authorities have approved our departure. The hot springs of the volcano of Santorini are also a natural phenomenon and we do not control the temperature. The cookie you received was complimentary, not listed in the meal plan you have booked. We remain at your disposal for further support. With warm regards, Spiridakos Sailing Cruises
Do it - You Won't Regret It!
Joseph_D, Oct 2021
An amazing time with the crew and other couples who joined. The views, the hot spring dip, and the food were all top notch. Ada and the rest of the crew were fun and informational and I am so glad we went with this company for the tour. Highly recommend!
