Superb !

This private catamaran cruise was the best. Wonderful experience! Swimming in the Aegean Sea and cruising around to see parts of Santorini that we would not have seen by land. The entire crew was very helpful, informative, and professional. We did not expect the meal provided to be so very good. It was an exceptional meal. Loved it all !!!!

Highly Recommend!

We (a group of 6 of us) rented a private sunset catamaran for a sunset dinner cruise. Our cruise stopped in Santorini for the day, so we were on a tight schedule based on when our cruise ship arrived and disembarked. We booked private that way we knew only us were on the catamaran and they could cater to our cruise ship. It was amazing! We arrived in Santorini, took the donkeys to the top, walked to the office. There we were shuttled to our boat and took off. The views, the stops, everything was breathtaking. The crew played music to our taste. Constantly provided us drinks. We swam in the ocean above a volcano. The best part was the dinner. IT WAS SO DELICIOUS. I seriously need the fried fish recipe. The sunset was incredible. The whole thing - highly recommend! The crew was amazing.
