Luxurious Small-Group Catamaran Cruise in Santorini with BBQ and Drinks

Get ready for a Luxury catamaran cruise around Santorini and make the experience of your lifetime.

Hop on board this Lagoon 450 catamaran and get ready for a premium semi-private, 5-hour excursion around Santorini (14 people max). There are two tours available: morning tour and sunset tour. Either way passengers will tour the island’s most breathtaking beaches and attractions and lay eyes on ravishing landscapes. Pick up and drop off service is included in the price. Travellers can also find snorkeling equipment, an informative map, jackets, towels and free Wi-Fi available on board.

The morning tour sets sail from the port of Ammoudi, below Oia village at 09:45. The catamaran sails towards the famous volcano for a healing mud bath in its hot springs, offering stunning caldera views. Then it sails past the small, nearby Aspronisi Island and the prominent Akrotiri village. There passengers have the chance to admire the ancient lighthouse as well as a unique feature of the caldera cliffs, a rock formation called Indian Rock as it looks like an Indian’s profile.

Next stop is at the charming White Beach for swimming and a savory barbeque onboard with the finest local products that will definitely top off the whole experience. The Greek menu offers Greek salad, shrimp saganaki, grilled chicken and pork skewers, pasta with red sauce, stuffed vine leaves and roasted vegetables (vegetarian meal also available). The meal is accompanied by white Santorinian wine, beer and soft drinks. The final stop is at Red Beach for swimming and snorkeling in dark-blue, crystal-clear waters in front of a jaw-dropping landscape. The tour ends at Vlychada port.

The sunset tour starts from Vlychada port at 14:30-14:45, follows the exact opposite itinerary (first stop is at Red Beach, second stop is at White Beach for barbeque, third stop is at the volcano’s hot springs) and ends at Ammoudi port. It has got one great asset though, one last stop. Those who join the sunset tour can watch the impressive sunset below the picturesque village of Oia, the best spot on the whole island to take in this splendid sight.

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!

So. Much. Fun.

We scheduled the tour before leaving the states and were looking forward to it. But, we were a bit worried that there might be too many people or be overrated. From the moment we stepped foot on the boat it was a really good experience. Everyone was so nice. It was not over crowded so we were able to just settle in and enjoy! The day was beautiful and the sights and experiences were perfect!!
