Geethanjali R. United States, 22 May 2023

This was our first girls trip and the crew did everything that made this an unforgettable experience for us. We were offered drop-off/pick up from a location near to our stay in Fira. It was a beautiful day on the sea but a bit choppy and hence had to skip red beach We had requested vegeterian food and they cooked up some real yum food with quite a few options. Overall, i highly recommend the catamaran.

Highly Recommend!

Our boating experience was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. The boat was pristine and had plenty of room in the front and back to hang out. There was even shade. Our captain and crew member could not have been nicer and shared stories about the surroundings and the stops we made. We even swam in the active volcano! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun and private adventure, no matter what time of year. Really amazing to see Santorini from the water.

10/10 cruise!

From start to finish the crew were super accommodating and listened to our requests. They were informative of the sights and the food/drinks were perfect. The Catamaran was so clean, spacious and modern and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Thank you again!

Santorini Caldera boat ride

Thanks to our Captain Philip and first mate and cook Kostas we had a wonderful time. My two daughters and my two grandsons from Stockholm enjoyed the food and drink as well as the history of what we were seeing along the way. It was a beautiful day and we went swimming even though the water was to cold in the middle of April!, A great experience!, Well organized!, Our guide was awesome!

Absolutely! Greece is one of the safest countries to swim in.

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.
