A Catamaran cruise is one of Santorini’s premier experiences! Live yours on this cruise and spend a few hours of ultimate relaxation on board with your friends in amazing surroundings!

A day to remember awaits you aboard two of our most spacious Catamarans, Dufour 48 and Lagoon 46, offering a fun and relaxing sailing experience in luxury and comfort!

The Catamarans sail twice a day, in the morning (5-hour Day Cruise), starting from the small Ammoudi port, and in the afternoon (5-hour Sunset Cruise), starting from Vlychada port, and provide a tour around the island of Santorini, the famous Caldera, and the most astonishing locations, extraordinary beaches and places that you can only visit by boat.

One such location is the tranquil island of Therasia. Swim in its clear blue waters, or lay on the big lounges of the boat, and get images of unparalleled beauty that you will remember!

The worldwide known and impressive Volcano of Santorini, as well as the warm waters of the Hot Springs near it, are also locations that will thrill you! You will have the chance to stop very close to this volcanic island and experience swimming in waters full of sulfur. The commanding view of the Volcano near you, along with the feeling of relaxation as warm springs of water are surrounding you, will create the perfect setting for an enjoyable swim! Needless to state that as your Catamaran sails along the Caldera, you will get images of unrivaled beauty, you will get to see small coves and beaches formed under the high volcanic cliffs, the impressive Indian Rock formations on the south part of the island, and the historical Venetian lighthouse on the top of the rocks. Get ready for the most stunning images and videos of your vacations on Santorini island!

This cruising experience will also delight you by taking you swimming and snorkeling (snorkeling equipment is provided) at the wonderful beaches of Santorini, the amazing White Beach, and Mesa Pigadia Beach, as well as the unique Red Beach. The high cliffs surrounding these beaches, as well as the mixture of colors in the pebbles covering the shore, especially in the Red Beach, in which you can see red and black colorations, are spectacles that will leave you speechless! A dive in the refreshing waters, with this amazing background, will be one of the highlights of the cruise!

Last but not least, if you choose to sail during the afternoon, the cruise will finish with the overwhelming view of the beautiful sunset of Santorini, below Oia village! Watch the sun disappearing on the horizon while sipping a nice drink, and getting the feeling of calmness as the cruise is coming to an end.

During the cruise, you will be served a Full BBQ meal, prepared on board with the finest local ingredients, accompanied by the famous Santorini white wine, beers, soft drinks, and one delicious cocktail! A free roundtrip transfer from your hotel is also provided.

Leave all the worries behind, climb aboard a Catamaran and get to know real freedom at the sea, along with the most beautiful images of the Santorini landscape! It will be a day to remember!

Our favorite day

Can't say enough about our crew, Kostas and Phillip, and all they did to make our day cruising around the Caldera so special. We were greatly impressed with the efficiency of the booking through Santorini View, to the pick-up close to our hotel and especially the excursion itself. Kostas and Phillip were super informative and fun. The meal they prepared featuring Kostas' grandmother's pasta sauce recipe was out of this world....maybe the best meal we had during out 11 days in Greece. The places they anchored to swim were wonderful. These cruise is well worth the money and the best way to experience Santorini.
