Sailing across the majestic waters of Santorini, the catamaran will stop at the famous Red Beach. You’ll get a chance to take some stunning photos and enjoy a refreshing swim before we continue to sail along the White Beach, ancient lighthouse, Black Mountain, and the southern Caldera. You can admire the mesmerizing beauty of the volcanic beaches or relax and sunbathe on the deck.

The next stop will be Hot Springs, where you’ll indulge in a unique experience of sensing the island’s spirit. A fresh meal will be served to all passengers along with some fulfilling dessert. You’ll have fun devouring tasty seafood, chicken fillet, and salads. There will also be an open bar, serving refreshing beverages, local white wine, and beer. Moreover, special meals will be served for people with specific dietary needs upon request.

After the meal, the catamaran will head towards the Vlychada Port and southern part of the island, taking the return route.

You can choose between the following two cruise options, depending on your specific needs, requirements, and preferences.

First, you’ll stop at Red Beach, where you can unwind by the shore or swim in the clear blue water. The cruise will then continue along the White Beach, Black Mountain, and the Venetian Light House to reach the Hot Springs. You can swim and snorkel in the therapeutic water and capture the unbelievable beauty of the island on your camera.
A delicious meal will be served on board, after which the cruise will return to the starting point by 15:30.

Starting from the Vlychada Port, it will take you to the Red and White beaches, Black Mountain, volcano, and Hot Springs.

Excellent Experience

We were able to book with Santorini View last min. when another company canceled on us, due to sick crew members. We had an incredible time, the crew were all friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious, providing a wide range of drinks. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Santorini and we would strongly recommend the trip to the volcano with Santorini View Catamaran Cruise!

Absolutely! Greece is one of the safest countries to swim in. You will be glad to know that sharks in the Aegean Sea (usually from species such as dogfish) are harmless, sightings are extremely rare while attacks are unheard of! In addition, the waves are usually small, especially inside the Caldera where most boat cruises make stops for swimming. So, based on the above, if you enjoy swimming, snorkeling, or even diving... you are in the right place!

All Catamaran vessels are fitted with toilets, for the use of guests onboard.
