Enjoy the luxury, style, and pure elegance of the Aegean sea and an amazing cruising experience on a Catamaran Boat! Live a sailing adventure that you will never forget!

Imagine yourself sailing in a catamaran on a sunny morning or a calm afternoon, with the feeling of the sun on your face and the wind in your hair! Then, come live the experience on this cruise around the famous caldera of Santorini!

Not only you will spend a day by the sea with your friends, but you will also wander around the most beautiful parts of the island! There are two cruises to choose from, the 5-hour Day Cruise and the 5-hour Sunset Cruise, each one of them including stops at many beautiful locations along the Caldera. The Day Cruise starts from the fisherman’s port of Ammoudi, while the Sunset Cruise starts from Vlychada port. For both cruises, you will be picked up/dropped off at your hotel, as a free roundtrip transfer by minibus is included.

One of the best parts of this cruise, and the most prominent site of Santorini, is the visit to the Volcano and the Hot Springs very close to it. Sail towards it and make a stop near the Volcanic isle, and the warm waters of the Hot Springs for about 30 minutes. It’s your chance to gaze at a Volcano from a close distance and enjoy a swim in waters full of sulfur! It’s a very interesting, alternative swim, that some people compare to a therapeutic spa!

Admire the magnificent coastal scenery as you are sailing in the Caldera rim, as well as the huge Indian Rock formations, which are shaped on the cliffs, on the south part of the island. Pass by the historical Venetian lighthouse, which is located at the top, and take the most stunning photos of the scenery around!

Continue exploring the crystal clear blue waters of the famous White Beach and Mesa Pigadia Beach, take a refreshing dive, and enjoy a mouthwatering BBQ meal, prepared on board, along with the famous white wine of Santorini, Greek Ouzo, beers, and soft drinks.

The extraordinary Red Beach is also another spot that you will visit during your catamaran cruise. High red cliffs, and black and red pebbles on the shore, in contrast to the crystal-clear waters, create a setting that will absolutely amaze you! You will stay there for about 30 minutes, so you can either enjoy swimming or snorkeling (snorkeling equipment provided) or just lay on the sunbeds, and marvel at the beautiful volcanic landscape.

For those who choose to sail in the afternoon, another great spectacle awaits in the end, the breathtaking sunset of Santorini, below Oia Village! Nothing compares to watching the sun go down while sipping on some local wine! It will be a magical moment!

Spend some hours in comfort and tranquility aboard a Catamaran, enjoy the sea, and indulge in the jaw-dropping scenery around!
