Catamaran Boat Tour in Santorini with BBQ and Drinks

This 5-hour day tour constitutes an ultimate experience in Santorini as it gives you the chance to embark on an awe-inspiring adventure around the island, explore the most iconic beaches of Santorini, relax in spectacular natural surroundings and admire magnificent views in just a few hours.

The luxurious catamaran departs from Ammoudi Port of Oia or Athinios Port south of Fira respectively, at 09:30 and sails along the west coastline of Santorini, below the captivating caldera. The first stop is close to the world-famous volcano for a healing mud bath in its Hot Springs. After this unique experience you’ll sail past Aspronisi, a small uninhabited island and Akrotiri settlement where you will revere the beautiful lighthouse and Indian rock, a rock formation on the caldera that resembles an Indian face. The next stop is the breathtaking Red Beach, which is one of the most popular beaches of Santorini for its extraordinary color and staggering cliffs, where you can swim and snorkel.

Then you’ll set sail for the secluded White Beach, another impressive beach of the island as its name indicates which is only accessible by boat. After swimming and snorkeling below its towering white cliffs in crystal clear waters, you will enjoy a savory barbeque on board. The Greek menu includes grilled pork or chicken, roasted vegetables, stuffed vine leaves and Greek salad. There is also a vegetarian meal available. Of course the famed white Santorinian wine and soft drinks are included in the price, too.

The final stop is back at Ammoudi or Athinios Port where the tour ends. Transport from/to your hotel is included. Please note that the tour offers a map with useful information on the attractions and destinations, free Wi-Fi and snorkeling equipment but you have to bring your own towel and warm clothes if you wish. Finally, the vessels will anchor as close to the aforementioned beaches as possible, since they cannot moor directly on them.

Not a lively crew

The cruise was decent. The hotel pickup was a little later than planned. However, it wasn't too bad. When we boarded the boat, it was extremely clean. We had to leave shoes at the front. The stops were okay. It would of been nice if a crew member gave some background about each landmark. There wasn't much snorkeling instruction either. This tour is mostly for experienced swimmers. The crew was not very fun and lively. No vibrant host on the microphone. His accent was very thick. Most of the time I didn't understand what he was saying. There won't be any clapping or dancing or birthday shout outs on this cruise. Very serious, no smiling staff. Very straight to the point. Moreover, the food was good. They give you a choice of chicken or pork or veggies for vegans. The side is a cucumber, onion, tomato salad with feta cubes on the side. Apple slices with cinnamon was served as dessert. Other than the dry personality of the crew, it was a nice experience!

Wonderful day!

We had a great boat tour. So nice to be on the water and see Santorini from different view. The hot springs stop was uneventful. It was basically jumping off boat into what looked like normal water and was slightly warmer than sea water. I was expecting something different. Stops at Red Beach and White Beach were nice, snorkeling was fun. Lunch was very good - chicken kebobs, greek salad, dolmades, & bread. Unlimited wine, pretty basic. Had to pay 2 euros for a beer. Could lay on netting in front at stops but not while boat was moving. People on board were super fun., A great experience!
