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.

Best thing we did in Greece!

Wonderful experience! The boat was lovely, everyone on board had fun together, and the food was excellent. Really, this was the highlight of my vacation to Greece. The scenery is amazing.

OLAYINKA F. Greece, 8 Oct 2022

It was a great an u forgettable experience. The crew was a set of lovely people. Vasiliki(Vaso) and the captain were amaizing. The people on board were also the most amaizi g people to share 7hours of my life with. I made an impromptu proposal planning on the trip. The level of excitement and contribution from d crew was mind blowing even though it wasn’t part of the package. Extend my Huggs to Vaso when u see her. It’s a 200% recommendation from me. Hola!
