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.

Amazing smoorth experience, worth the money, great deal, great expereince, you will love it!
Lu_J, Apr 2024
It is an amazing experience and a very efficient process. Within 20 minutes of booking, I already got a confirmation email with exactly what time my driver will come, the COLOR of the car, how many seats, and all the other details. Just amazing - I never thought they would be that responsive. Then, on the day of- the driver came to the hotel 1 minute BEFORE the stated time, then drove like a BOSS to the dock, and we waited to get on the catamaran. The captain and his crew were amazing - we got plenty to eat and plenty to drink, and they took us to 3-to 4 different stops before the sunset. I thought I'd get sick on the boat, but it was VERY smooth. I lay down and enjoyed the sun - it was so relaxing. The staff also offered to take pictures for us, and it was just an overall very efficient process. When done, we disembarked efficiently, and the driver took us back to the hotel. Just a lovely time, and GREAT value for your money (total about 5 hours experience). Would highly recommend.
Great cruise!

Francie_C, Mar 2024
The sunset! WOW! The most amazing I have ever seen. The crew, the food, the snorkeling, the history. What a fabulous evening!
Transfer went smoothly....
Joy_H, Nov 2023
Transfer went smoothly. Very nice boat and updated equipment. The meal was fantastic. However, the drinks were limited and beer ran out after the meal was served about midway through the cruise. The staff seemed annoyed when asked questions. For example, where we should put our dirty plates, and if we needed a refill on a drink. A little disappointed with “feeling bad” for asking for things that we paid for on this cruise.
Amazing experience!!!

This cruise was a lot of fun, do it!! Crew on the boat made it fun and the food was delicious (loved the shrimp saganaki - YUM) and there was plenty. We made 3 stops for swimming (it was October so a bit chilly but still got in) and ended with a beautiful sunset.

Cheri_X, Oct 2023
Must-do experience in Santorini. Open bar and amazing lunch. At one point the captain opened up the sails and it was very peaceful. Not crowded at all. Well worth the money paid. Book it!
Worth it!
Kat_G, Oct 2023
Absolutely worth it! Transfers included, the food was yummy, lots of drinks provided, the locations were beautiful and we enjoyed a small group on the boat so everyone had plenty of space. Staff were nice and informative.
Amazing sunset, great crew and awesome food!

Food was amazing and the staff was incredible! Saw beaches, the caldera and an amazing sunset. Highly recommend!
Mindy_G, Oct 2023
This trip is an absolute must when planning your Santorini trip! I don’t usually believe in giving 5 stars, but this day was as perfect as it gets. The food was outstanding, all the ingredients were fresh and the food was freshly made, not premade and defrosted. The boat was immaculately clean and well serviced. The staff were funny, respectful and took their job seriously at the same time.
