My husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon and this is one of our most memorable moments in Greece. They picked us up by our hotel and transferred us to the bay. The entire trip was so much fun and made better with the crew. At the first stop we had sandwiches prepared, and at another stop we had a complete Greek meal grilled on the boat. They also provided towels and allowed us to swim at three stops for a good amount of time. I would highly recommend this excursion!

Luxury At its Best…breathe taking
Samantha_V, Apr 2024
The views are insane and so amazing! The customer service was spectacular. The catamaran was in excellent condition inside and out. The crew is very prideful on how they take care of catamaran and their guest. Thank you for a wonderful experience from NYC!
5 star experience

Absolutely amazing experience! Great staff, great food and beautiful boat! Most beautiful catamaran I ever been on wish I took better pics. The food was so delicious and they weren’t stingy with it. I ate every drop
do not waste your money

They stop at places to allow you off into the ocean but you cannot go on shore to touch the sand. Also, they do not provide life jackets only if its an emergency.
Boat is great, getting there is a drag
Alison_Z, Oct 2023
Everything on the boat was fantastic. The crew was competent, fun, and informative. The food was tasty and generous. The only reason this isn’t a 5 star experience is the transportation on either end. It says they pick you up at your hotel. That is incorrect. They pick you up at the McDonalds in Fira which was a 10 minute walk from our hotel. The return trip was a disaster. We waited about an hour standing around in the hot sun before the van came for us on the back end. We then drove from place to place for another hour before being dropped back at the McDonalds. All in we arrived at our pick up at 8:50am and got back to that same spot at 3:50pm. We were only on the water from 10am to 2pm.
Great time

The tour was great, I really enjoyed it. The staff on the boat are very kind, friendly and lovely, I loved it. The food was very tasty and served very nicely. This is the best tour you can choose and they are very organised, even the driver for pick us up was very good. The passengers are really cool too. Thanks a lot. See you next year for sure!
Beautiful water and lovely setting!

The tour guide Maria was amazing and very knowledgeable! We had the best time. The catamaran was beautiful and so clean. We loved hearing about the history at each stop and the food was unbelievable. Would absolutely do this again and would recommend to friends. Music playlist was also on point! Captain played great tunes.

This was our favorite part of the holiday, amazing day out at sea, crew were friendly and helpful. Swimming in the ocean once the boat anchored was fabulous, BBQ on board topped it off with amazing food.

Amazing Day on the Water
Kelly_W, Sep 2023
The morning started with a transfer from Oia where we were staying. When at the port, our driver turned around and drove backwards down the window road to drop us off where the boats would pick us up. His driving skills were very impressive. We boarded our boat, The Sunset Oia 500 and took off for a great day on the water. Our first stop was by the volcano. A few people got off the boat to swim. Most people just say on the boat and enjoyed the view. After that, we cruised for a bit and got to know our fellow passengers. Our captain Alex and his crew Natalia and Jimmy kept us informed as to the location and history of the island along the way. We stopped at another beach for a longer swim and some lunch. The lunch was amazing!! After lunch, we swam a bit more and made our way along the coast. We stopped for one final.swim. It was a relaxing day on the water. Highly recommended!

Doesn't get better than this!
Natasha_D, Sep 2023
This was the best way to spend my birthday, cruising around the blue waters of Santorini with my wife, sipping wine, eating a great lunch and swimming in warm clear water! Definitely recommend this trip.
Mariangela_V, Sep 2023
We had a great time and your staff was amazing. I have already recommended you to my friends going to Greece.
Good start bad finish
Mario_B, Sep 2023
The tour itself is good and worth the money but the reason I removed a star is that on the return to the port we were left floating like a message bottle in front of the peer while other catamarans ( I would say at least 10 ) passed us by to unload passengers. Some people were sea sick and that is the worst thing that could happen. The crew at the end after some 25 or 30 minutes balancing in the waves informed us it was because of the traffic... other Catamarans were not blocked by traffic. We had to move away from the port and be transfered in a small boat. This lack of informing passengers on time is the worst thing a provider of services could do.
Fantastic Catamaran Day
Molly_P, Aug 2023
Fantastic excursion and tour! The boat crew was incredible and very fun. We had a wonderful day cruising around the island and stopping at various swimming spots. Even was able to snorkel at one. The Greek bbq lunch was very delicious as well. Highly recommend this tour and doing this at the beginning of your trip to Santorini!
