Santorini catamaran day cruise

Had so much fun on this semi-private sail around the island. The crew members made the experience very sociable for everyone. The stops were adequate amount of time to swim. The food was tasty and served by the captain. I would highly recommend. , A great experience!

Poor trip and very disappointing

Would not recommend this company Staff ( especially the female skipper on the boat ) were rude. Massive commercial / crush as many on the boat as you can to make money. Lots of waiting around. Not enough seats for everyone. No decent non alcoholic options ( water or full fat coke only) The female skipper snapped at guests for getting a beer or asking for an extra prawn at lunch! Snorkelling pointless as no fish to see Sights we stopped at where packed with 10 other catamarans and views not really worth it. Went on a catamaran but the staff couldn’t be bothered to open the sails so it was pointless despite it being a windy day and it was fully possible to do. They then said they couldn’t as there were too many people on the boat. Then don’t sell it as a catamaran cruise and don’t crush so many of us on to make more money. Might as well have picked a motorised boat. Apparently they never open the sails so don’t waste money with this company for a catamaran I’d recommend doing a private option rather than having 16 strangers clambering over each other. Also a long drive back to the hotel at the end of the day as the boat trip ends up at the other side of the island. Poor communication throughout the day from the staff. Very Disappointing as booked for a special occasion for my husband and I. They couldn’t get wit to get you off the boat at the end as the next group where piling on for the sunset cruise back to Oia . Think twice about spending your money on this luxury catamaran cruise with a bbq and cocktails.

Spiridakos Sailing Cruises

Dear Dr Davina, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with constructive feedback. We have discussed this with our captain and crew, and they could not recall a moment of rudeness, so we are very open to discussion if you could please provide us with more details about the incident. This is a shared cruise following the maximum number of passengers on board, as per the Greek maritime law. We have checked with the crew and there was no passenger standing. Would you care enough to explain? You have selected to visit the most popular Island in Greece during the summer peak season, so one may have expected more boats to be around the sights. Indeed, apart from the cocktails, the beers, the wines, we do not claim that we provide more than water and simple refreshments. We have checked with the crew and captain, and unfortunately, they could not confirm your claim about "snapping on a client for an extra prawn or beer". We are really sad that you did not enjoy snorkeling and the views around the sights. Indeed, we do not guarantee a sailing session if the conditions are not optimum, both on the number of passengers or weather conditions. We would agree with you, that a private cruise would be a much more wise option for you. Indeed, as per the description of the cruise, and the live map, the trip starts in Ammoudi and ends in the southern port of Vlychada. The transfer from/to your hotel is complimentary. Would you tell us more about the poor communication you have experienced with us? We are really sad that you and your husband were disappointed. We remain at your disposal for further support. With warm regards, Leonidas Spiridakos

Absolutely! Greece is one of the safest countries to swim in.

In addition, the waves are usually small, especially inside the Caldera where most boat cruises make stops for swimming. So, based on the above, if you enjoy swimming, snorkeling, or even diving... you are in the right place!

All Catamaran vessels are fitted with toilets, for the use of guests onboard.
