Pickup details

*Pick Up information* We will send you a message with the exact location and time for the pickup, after the booking. The pick-up happens with a Mini Bus, at least one hour before the start time of the cruise and the pickup location might be a short walking distance from your hotel. *Are you a Cruise Ship Guest visiting Santorini?* Most tender boats drop you off at the Old Port of Fira, but WE CAN NOT PICK YOU UP from there since there is no road access. You will need to take the cable car to reach our office in Fira and be there at least one hour before the start of our sailing cruise. Let us know what time the tender starts and gets back to your cruise ship. We need to make sure that you have enough time to return.

What To Expect

Whether you choose the daytime or the sunset cruise, your Santorini adventure begins with pickup from your hotel (or the nearest road access point in areas with traffic restrictions).

Travel to Vlychada port, where you'll board your catamaran and set out on the Aegean Sea. After a photo stop off Red Beach, famous for its rust-hued cliffs and sand, sail past beautiful White Beach, and anchor off Mesa Pigadia Beach, for a snorkel and swim stop.

Sail past the Venetian lighthouse, then discover the offshore islands, which actually form parts of the edge of a gigantic undersea caldera. Swim to the Santorini Hot Springs to experience the warm waters rising from the sea bed, sail past the still-active Santorini Volcano. You’ll anchor off Nea Kameni islet for a swim and a buffet lunch or dinner with local white wine and soft drinks.

You’ll disembark at Vlychada, where transport will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

The sunset cruise was incredible! Our captain Alex and crew members Endri and Chris were amazing! While on the boat they gave us a few history lessons throughout the trip. The stops were beautiful and swimming was amazing. By the end it was a bit chilly but still a beautiful evening. Highly recommend doing this!

Highly recommend this experience! Great crew, awesome views
joleen_l, Apr 2024
Trip was enjoyable with great crew on board. We enjoyed the swim stops at Red Beach and Hot Spring (although it was not very hot). Blankets and towels were provided which was great and sufficient space on the boat to sit around. Food was provided but would be great if the portion was increased. Overall, highly recommended for the experience!
Highly recommend!
Emily_g, Apr 2024
What a wonderful experience! Irini, Makis, and crew were very pleasant and attentive. The meal was delicious! This was a very well organized trip and exactly what we were expecting based on the booking description. Please, do not pay too much attention to the negative reviews. They’re probably just coming from uptight jerks anyways!
Value for money

Amena_T, Apr 2024
Amazing experience. The crew was very friendly and took care of everyone on the boat. The food was great and views were amazing. The catamaran takes us all around the caldera and we were able to safely snorkel/swim around. Super peaceful experience, highly recommend!
Happy Day Boat

Must do sunset time!
Ellette_T, Apr 2024
The crew was very nice and helpful. Views were insane. Food was so good especially the taziki and chicken. The wine was good but I found it funny our boat drank it all by the last few hours even though it was unlimited drinks (we were pretty much all from united states lol.) Also, the transportation was incredible and they were even accommodating when we had to pull over to throw up on the way home haha. Definitely recommend. We went mid April and it was still okay to swim a lil chilly but not unbearable. Did the sunset cruise and it was UNREALLLL

We had the most amazing time! The crew was amazing and so friendly! The food on board was to die for Greek food! All the locations were great and it was such a great way to experience Greece!
I will recommend this group to my travel clients and friends
Kerri_M, Apr 2024
Best catamaran and staff ever. We had a blast. Also they were very informative on the history and information about our stops. The volcano, red beach, white beach, snorkeling, pictures, dinner. Everything was amazing.
The best crew ever
Mihir_R, Apr 2024
The best cruise we have been on! The crew - elena (the most fun guide ever), the captain and every single person on the crew made sure we had a fabulous time. From telling us the facts, to ensuring we had enough vino at all times and playing absolute bangers to turn the cruise into a dance party, the crew made sure everyone was well taken care of. We couldn’t have asked for a better sunset cruise whilst our stay.
Very polite staff. We...
Hemant_P, Apr 2024
Very polite staff. We could not swim but others did, who could swim. Please carry warm clothes in case of a windy day.
Breathtaking views and amazing staff
Kaitlyn_C, Apr 2024
Highly recommend the day tour! We originally had the sunset tour booked but due to high winds had to change last minute and the company was very understanding and accommodating. The day tour turned out so much better than we would have expected and the water was perfect for being out in the hot sun. Definitely bring sunscreen and reapply!
The most beautiful cruise !!

Amazing time on Happy Day boat
Chotipon_M, Apr 2024
Happy Day boat - everything about this catamaran cruise was incredible. The staff were amazing and incredibly kind. The boat itself was first-class, and the views were unreal. Best money spent in Santorini! Captain Alex was freindly, the crews Endri and Chrisa were very attentive. The food was delicious. Plenty of wine.
Amazing Cruise
Jennifer_F, Apr 2024
Everything about the Cruise was amazing. The crew was great and the food was delicious. The views were absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend.
Unforgettable family sunset experience
Rajan_G, Apr 2024
At first, my family and I were hesitant about the tour, thinking it might be geared towards young couples. However, we were pleasantly surprised; it's truly suitable for all ages. We loved every moment, especially the breathtaking sunset spot. When my wife felt seasick, the crew went above and beyond to assist her, and she quickly recovered to fully enjoy the trip. It was a fantastic experience, and we're grateful to the crew for making it so memorable for us.
Service. Smiles. Sunsets
Danny_R, Apr 2024
Wow, super impressed, the service from the crew was 5 star. Nicholas with small history facts and constant wine top ups, the care was unbelievable, also brought us blankets when he knew it was getting cold. Food was great, Greek salad, tzatziki, bread, grilled chicken, dolmas. Really really the best boat trip I’ve been on across many countries. Well done to this company! We booked it at 14:20 (couple from London), they collected us literally 5 minutes later from our hotel in Imerovigli, 30 mins later we set sailed, thanks for all the efforts with that on our last day in Santorini.
Must do in Santorini!
Bernadeth_A, Apr 2024
Very lovely crew. First things first: they picked us up at Oia where we were staying. About a 30 minute ride. We were then met with Captain Makis who was pleasantly funny. The crews Borhan and Chrisa took care of us and gave us all the history and fun facts from the islands we passed by. The swimming spots were perfect and not too cold (I'm Canadian) and others found it a bit chilly. Take note we went in April which I thought was the perfect month as it wasn't busy at all. We saw the red, white, and black rock islands. Beautiful! The volcanic hot springs had warm spots but full of sulphur so be aware of that if you have asthma and don't wear light coloured swimwear as it might get stained. The food was lovely. We had Greek salad, tomato past, tzatziki and bread, and others. Unlimited wine and soft drinks. And the best part was we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunset I have ever experienced in my life. Overall a very positive experience! Don't hesitate to book them! 😊
michael_j, Apr 2024
