Join a terrific 5-hour catamaran cruise around Santorini’s most spectacular landmarks and spots, on board a Lagoon 520 or 550 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 that 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 of Santorini thanks to its extraordinary landscape and color. Snorkeling equipment, towels and jackets are available on board. 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.

Fantastic day on the boat in the sun

Amazing day out in the sea. Perfect day-time cruise, very friendly team, really well organised (though might find yourself waiting a bit on the other end for the return bus, but it's worth it). The crew on the catamaran was so accommodating, lovely freshly prepared food, gorgeous well-taken care of boat plus the best music playlist made the whole experience feel like an exclusive getaway. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and well worth the money.

Not as advertised - not Happy - would not recommend

We were 12 people on a catamaran which could host max 10 people in terms of sunbeds to enjoy the trip. All the sunbeds were occupied by the other people. Me and my partner found a small spot in the front...we sat BUT we could not lIe down as the other guests. Additionally any time we stopped the catamaran those places needed to be empty - again the other guests could lie down with no issues. Additionally on the plan 7 stops were planned BUT we did just 3: sulfur beach, red beach, White beach. For 130 euro per person this is not what I expected!

Sunset Oia Sailing Cruises

Dear Sofia, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy as much as you hoped to our tour. Kindly note that this particular catamaran can take up to 23 pax. We reduced it to 17 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Unfortunately the catamarans can't have as many sunbeds as the number of passengers on board, none of them have. There's a lot of space to enjoy and relax. We tell passengers to leave the nets empty when on route because of safety reasons. When we stop again you may sit. Kindly note that we advertise and make 3 stops. Hot Springs, Red and White beach, not 7. In my opinion for what we offer 130€ is a good price considering we provide a wholesome menu on board, freshly made, lots of drinks and water and the roundtrip transfers. Regards, Tasos
