Join a terrific 5-hour catamaran cruise around Santorini’s most spectacular landmarks and spots, onboard a Lagoon 500 or 520 where comfort is a priority.

Their capacity is 20 people maximum and they are ideal for a premium semi-private excursion. You can choose between a morning tour and a sunset tour ̶ the morning tour starts from Ammoudi bay at 10:15 and ends at Vlychada port, whereas the sunset tour starts from Vlychada port at 15:15 and ends at Ammoudi port. Round trip transfers from and to your hotel are included in the price.

You will visit the world-famous volcano and have the chance to enjoy a unique swim in its hot springs which are known for their therapeutic benefits. You can try snorkeling while swimming in the crystal clear waters of Red Beach, probably the most popular beach in Santorini thanks to its extraordinary landscape and color. Snorkeling equipment, towels and jackets are available onboard. There is also an informative map and free Wi-Fi.

Another wondrous beach of Santorini is the secluded White Beach where you can go swimming or simply enjoy the impressive scenery while the crew prepares a delectable barbeque meal on board. The Greek menu is prepared with fine local products and includes Greek salad, grilled chicken and pork skewers, roasted vegetables and stuffed vine leaves. Of course, there is a vegetarian meal and a variety of drinks, including beer, soft drinks, and the famous white Santorinian wine.

During the tour the catamaran sails below the miraculous caldera and past a neighboring, uninhabited island called Aspronisi, Akrotiri village and its noteworthy ancient lighthouse as well as Indian Rock, an admirable feature of the caldera cliffs, a natural sculpture that resembles an Indian’s face. Of course, no one can deny the dazzling views all around them throughout the cruise. Those who choose the sunset tour will have the opportunity to admire the astounding sunset below the picturesque village of Oia, one of the top attractions of Santorini.

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!

So, based on the above, if you enjoy swimming, snorkeling, or even diving... you are in the right place!
