So much fun, especially if you’re on a cruise.

Wonderful experience! We traveled to Santorini via cruise ship and were happy to be picked up in the Old Port and not have to deal with the crowds and the lines to take the tram up or down. We also wanted to explore the coastline and it was stunning. We swam in 3 different spots & it was very easy to climb the ladder on the swim platform. Had a terrific lunch of grilled kabobs and fresh salad. On the way back to the docks saw beautiful caves where the light made the water glow. Was a highlight for us & we were on a 3 week vacation. Would say it is a must do!

3 hours of bliss

My best friend of 30 years and I recently went on a Greece trip and decided to rent a private boat. SO WORTH IT! Our driver was so nice, accommodating, personable, but knew when to let us be and when to interact, which is not an easy thing to do. I would 100% book again! , A great experience!, Excellent!, A great experience!

Island boat trip in Santorini

Ideal trip for 3 or 4 family members. Pick up in the Old Port is perfect for cruises because you do not need to queue for the cable car or climb the cliffs. Takes you around all the islands that formed the circle of land from before. See the islands & volcanoes, stop in village for refreshments and be guided by the captain through the history. Perfect for a 3 hour tour through the history & the area from the sea. Only slight problem is getting in & out the small boat in port., A great experience!, Our guide was awesome!, A great experience!
