Our fabulous wedding celebrations

We were in Santorini in Aug 2020 to celebrate our wedding and a couple of days after we took 17 of our guests on a Catamaran day trip. What a fantastic day we had! The crew were magnificent and couldn't do enough for us. The trip around the island was breathtaking and interesting with the crew being very knowledgeable on local beaches and history. The barbecue we had for lunch was out of this world and there was plenty of water wine and beer.We had plenty of opportunity to jump in and swim and snorkel all around the island and a perfect journey home with the sails out. Our pick up and drop offs were seamless, all in all I would say a must for any Santorini trip and we will be back next year for the sunset one, A great experience!
