This 5-hour tour around the island offers you the opportunity to enjoy the majestic sunset of Santorini aboard a cozy catamaran. You will set eyes on the most extraordinary beaches of Santorini, beautiful landmarks and landscapes and relish the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea as well as a complimentary barbeque dinner with Greek recipes. A map with Santorini’s landmarks and destinations is available.

The tour starts from Ammoudi Port in Oia or Athinios Port at 14:30. Free pick-up service is available and starts almost one hour before tour starting time. First you’ll set sail for the well-known volcano and its healing Hot Springs. Then as the catamaran sails below the caldera you will admire Indian rock, an admirable feature of the caldera that looks like an Indian’s face, a nearby small island called Aspronisi and the admirable lighthouse of Akrotiri settlement. 

At the next two stops you have the chance to swim and snorkel (snorkeling equipment is provided) in the refreshing waters of Red Beach, the most popular beach of Santorini for its impressive landscape as it is surrounded by red towering cliffs and is covered in red pebbles, and White Beach, an isolated beach that stands out for its tall white cliffs and white pebbles. The catamarans stop at the closest possible point from the beaches as they cannot moor directly on them. Please keep in mind that you need to bring your own towels and warm clothes for the evening. Besides snorkeling and swimming, you can relax and sunbathe at the luxurious deck of the catamaran while taking in the wondrous natural beauty all around you.

After that you will indulge in a delicious feast on board where you’ll try pork or chicken fillets, Greek salad, stuffed vine leaves, roasted vegetables and unlimited soft drinks and the renowned Santorinian wine. A vegetarian menu is also available. Of course the final stop is below the scenic village of Oia, at the best spot for watching the famous sunset of Santorini, the most sought-after sunset in the world ‒ the perfect way to complete this unique experience. The tour ends at Ammoudi or Athinios Port respectively.

A fabulous experience

What can I say, this trip was absolutely incredible. Very well organised, from being collected at the hotel to being taken onto the Catamaran. The experience was something else, sitting in the sunshine with excellent service, really good food which was cooked there and then and finished off with the Santorini sunset and a Strawberry Daquiri. I cannot recommend this trip enough, it was absolutely fantastic. Thanks to all the crew on-board fir thier excellent service.

It was good

We had a wonderful time, the crew is great and very entertaining. However, we were very dissapointed that we didn't get to see the red beach and the white beach. The crew said that it was the capitain's decision because of the weather (it was a little bit windy), which is why we stood for like 2 hours at Thirasia island. And also, we didn't watch the sunset below the village of Oia (as it is advertised), but near the Athinios port. The food was great, the wine was good. We had a lovely experience overall.
