Get ready for an unforgettable sailing experience on this luxury small group catamaran cruise!

A sunset catamaran cruise is definitely one of the must-have experiences in Santorini and the perfect way to explore all the hidden gems of the island. This 6-hour tour promises to be an exciting journey across the island, allowing you to enjoy the exquisite landscapes.

Starting daily from Ammoudi Bay in Oia at 14:00, you will have the chance to see the spectacular volcanic cliffs before visiting Therasia island for a first dive in the crystal clear waters and heading to the famous Volcano of Santorini for another swim with the stunning wild view of the volcanic scenery a few meters away. After, you will set sail for Akrotiri village, where you will admire its adorable Venetian lighthouse and an interesting rock formation on the caldera, called the Indian Rock.

The next stops are at Mesa Pigadia Beach, White Beach or Red Beach, depending on the weather conditions and the wind. Here, besides the tremendous landscapes, you can relax by the water or swim your worries away in addition to taking beautiful photos and use the snorkeling gear to discover underwater thrills. Most of all, you will indulge in a palatable meal in spectacular surroundings. After dinner, following the caldera coastline, you can take splendid photographs of the admirable old port of Fira, the hidden church of Seven Holy Youths and the bay of Armeni. Before the end of the cruise, get ready for the highlight of the tour – the captivating sunset of Santorini at the best spot, under the village of Oia– a mesmerizing spectacle to relish on board.

You will certainly have a blast and enjoy greatly the views, the landscapes, the swimming, the relaxation and, of course, the appetizing BBQ fresh Fish/Seafood meal. The starters include Greek salad with organic products and Cretan oil, tzatziki and grilled feta cheese, and mushrooms. For the main dish you can choose between chicken leg fillet with marinade served with beef sausage and sea bream with shrimps. The vegetarian option is spaghetti Napolitan (red sauce). The meal is accompanied by fresh fruit and unlimited water, sparkling water, beer and white wine.

Convenient transport from and to the hotel is provided. All you need to bring is a hat, sunscreen, a light jacket and certainly your best mood.

Fun and Relaxing, Fabulous Meal

We loved our catamaran sunset cruise! We had a lot of fun interacting with the other couples, and the crew was fantastic! Although we didn't sail out of the caldera because of wind conditions, it worked out to be a full day of swimming opportunities and enjoying the scenery. The crew informed us of the history of the caldera and other interesting stories regarding the area, and they cooked a fabulous meal for us, as well as refilled our drinks whenever we wanted. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Santorini, and I highly recommend it.
