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 complimentary 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.

Amazing Experience!
Robert_J, Apr 2024
Absolutely worth the money. Are you kidding me? The sunset is priceless and Leo and his amazing crew took incredible care of us and all the passengers. The food was incredible and we rarely did not have a drink in our hand. In addition to the customer service, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and made us aware of all history, safety precautions, and general knowledge of the areas visited. Great for couples. The biggest shout out to Leo and the crew. You guys were amazing.
Sailing away into bliss

The cruise was excellent. Just the right amount of people, great food and awesome stops along the way. What made the trip perfect was one of the crew named Johova. His great attitude and service really made the cruise. All the crew members were super helpful and courteous. Thanks again for a memorable time.
Once in a lifetime experience
Daniel_P, Apr 2024
The trip was amazing from start to finish One of the guides explained every place that we were at, and what the history behind each place was, which was very informative The food itself on the cruise was just as good as what you could get in a restaurant(good food) the staff was amazing as anytime you needed a picture taken they would be there to accommodate You didn’t have to ask them they knew if you needed a picture they would volunteer The captain was hands-down, one of the most amazing captains as he handled. The ship was such finesse and experience. I recommend anybody in Santorini to experience one of a kind adventure
Must see Greece by Sea
Moretta_R, Apr 2024
This sunset Cruise offers breathtaking views of Santorini and several other islands from sea. If there is 1 thing I have learned about Greece is that you have to experience it from sky, Land and Sea . Captain Paolo and the crew were great. The group we were with were a nice bunch and the vibes were all positive. Captain even let me take the wheel 😉
Sunset amazing cruise!
Karin_S, Apr 2024
Everything from start to finish was excellent! The crew were amazing and the people we met were great! I can not think of anything to complain about!
Absolute Must Do
Kari_W, Apr 2024
This cruise is a must do. Everything was so well organized from the pick up and drop off and all the food and sights in between. The crew was a lot of fun, helpful and full of knowledge of the island. The food was delicious and plentiful and my wine glass was never empty. They took us to three swimming sights and gave us plenty of time to enjoy each of them. We met a bunch of fun people too. Don’t miss this tour if you’re in Santorini!
Stunning!!!
Shweta_M, Mar 2024

nataliedoaneyahoocom, Feb 2024
Wonderful and loved the spent in the hot springs. The food was freshly made while we sailed with endless soda and other drinks. Yet it was a fun family environment.
Wonderful day on the water in Santorini
Brian_W, Nov 2023

Beautiful Caldera boat rid
donmishory, Nov 2023
This was a great, relaxing trip through the Caldera. The crew was friendly, informative, and as my 24 yo daughter would say, “very chill”. I recommend this booking amongst the many choices.
Don’t book with choppy waters
Brandon_D, Nov 2023
DO NOT book this tour if the water is choppy. It didn’t seem that bad from the shore- but oh boy it was rough. Luckily I had extra Dramamine or we would have all been puking on one another. The service however was excellent!
A “Must Do” Activity in Santorini
George_R, Oct 2023
The crew was so friendly, attentive and the food was delicious! They were very generous with the food and drinks. The swim in the thermal waters and off of Red Beach was so much fun and the sunset amazing!
Caldera Cruise Oct 15.
DonalCahalane, Oct 2023
Loved the catamaran cruise into the caldera. The crew were exceptional, the food was delicious and the sunset was spectacular from the water. Great experience overall and highly recommended.
Sunset Magical Cruise
Luis_D, Oct 2023
Leo and his crew were amazing. They provided the perfect amount of info/history for all the spots we explored on the catamaran. We had 3 opportunities to jump in the ocean - all very unique spots. The food/drinks were all delicious. Would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Santorini.
Amazing cruise!
Joahnna_R, Oct 2023
I highly recommend this activity. It was great to see almost half of Santorini from a different viewpoint being on a catamaran. We were able to swim on the three different spots. But the most amazing experience was watching the sun set on the horizon. Also, the crew members made sure that everyone was having fun! They also shared information and historical facts about the places we saw. The food was plenty and delicious. There was also unlimited alcoholic beverages that was served. Thank you Cali and the rest of the gang for such an unforgettable experience.
Worth it!!
Rachel_D, Oct 2023
Our tour was SO much fun. The crew was very attentive to our needs and so fun and friendly. The views were incredible and the food was delicious. Highly recommend!
The most perfect sunset cruise
Ken_F, Oct 2023
Wow, what amazing sail. The skipper, our host, the food, the views, the swimming spots, the small number of passengers (only 8 on our sail but a maximum of only 16-20), everything was just fantastic. Everyone needs to book this trip.
Outstanding cruise adventure!
Lorraine_P, Oct 2023
What a fantastic experience this was, from arrival this was a very professional and well organised adventure. We were all very well catered for, drinks were in an abundance and the food was freshly cooked and prepared by excellent chefs. The voyage was spectacular, stopping in areas for 20 minutes or so, allowing guests to enjoy a dip in the water (the hot springs was fab). The sunset was outstanding! What a fabulous way to end the cruise. Transport to and from our hotels was easy and stress free. Would 100% recommend this trip.
Fun Experience
Deja_H, Oct 2023
The host was great. She was the best part oc the experience. You need her full time so everyone can have the same fun we had.
Best experience ever.
Terry_A, Oct 2023
The food was great. Natalia and crew were great on the Bonita. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Santorini. Swimming in the sea was a awesome experience and I would highly recommend this.
