Which Boat Tour Should I Choose?


A boat tour in Santorini is the most delightful and efficient way of exploring the hidden treasures of the island while feeling the sense of freedom and serenity that the sea offers! There are different types of boat tours to choose from, depending on your preferences and your vacation style. Whether you prefer a Volcano Tour, a Catamaran Cruise, a Yacht Cruise, or a Sailing Cruise, there are many options to choose from.

-Volcano Tours: One of the most popular and affordable options is the Volcano tours, as they include a hike on the impressive Santorini Volcano, a swim at the Hot Springs near it, and some of them a visit to the neighboring island of Therasia. Some even offer the opportunity to watch the beautiful sunset on board!

-Catamaran Cruises: A Catamaran Cruise is also popular among travelers to Santorini, as apart from the chance to see the Volcano from a close distance and take a dive in the warm waters near it, it takes you to the most picture-perfect beaches on the island, offers meals such as a buffet meal, a full BBQ meal, or even vegetarian options, and provides unlimited local wine, beers, and soft drinks.

-Yacht Cruises: For those who wish to organize a special event on board, like a birthday party or a wedding proposal, a yacht cruise is the best choice. It is a private option for just you and your group or loved one, which ensures that you will have a comfortable and thrilling experience!

-Sunset Boat Tours: All the cruise types offer Day and Sunset tours to choose from. If you are looking for a romantic experience, a sunset tour is an ideal choice. You will sail in the most stunning location and be rewarded by the breathtaking view of the sun disappearing on the horizon!
