Do not leave from Santorini unless you have experienced a boat tour! Its greatest asset is that you can face the impressive caldera and the picturesque villages on its top from the sea. In addition, you will swim in the crystal-clear waters of the most popular beaches of the island, like Red Beach and White Beach, as well as in the therapeutic waters of the volcano’s hot springs. Whichever boat tour you choose, you will see the volcano up close. Some of them even offer the opportunity to walk on it! What is more, some boat tours provide barbeque meal on board and unlimited local wine and beers, or even special cocktails! There are sunset options too, for those who want to admire the sunset of Santorini on board! Whether you are on a honeymoon with your other half or a large group of friends looking for a unique party onboard or a family, then a private boat tour is the perfect choice for your special occasion!

Which boat tour should I choose?


Depending on your preferences, there are many types of boat tours to choose from. If you would like to hike on the volcano, you have to take a Volcano Tour. If you would like to watch the sunset onboard, you will have to book a Sunset Boat Tour. If you want a full experience with food, unlimited drinks, swimming at picture-perfect beaches, like Red Beach and White Beach, book a Catamaran Cruise, a Yacht Cruise or a Sailing Cruise. If you would like to have a special occasion like a honeymoon or a wedding proposal, book a Romantic Honeymoon Experience or a Private Boat Tour.

The most popular boat tours are the Volcano Tours, where you can hike on the volcano at an affordable price. All the Volcano Tours include a visit to the hot springs and some visit the nearby island of Therasia. Although the Volcano Tours are the most popular, there are many other boat tour types that are just as pleasant. Booking a Catamaran Cruise will give you the chance to visit the most beautiful beaches of the island, like Red Beach and White Beach, and swim in hot springs too. You will enjoy a meal on board, including a buffet menu, a BBQ full meal or even quality food for vegans with unlimited local wine and beers! It is definitely the best tour experience in Santorini.

The Motor Yacht Cruises are ideal for those of you who want to organize a special occasion on board, such as a birthday party for your beloved ones, a wedding proposal or a private party with your company.

If you would like to visit nearby islands, there are tours that visit Therasia Island. And if you want a private customized cruise to visit other islands, please do not hesitate to contact us to help you.
