The Private Day Cruise starts at 10:00 from the Ammoudi Port (Oia) and lasts around 5 hours. The first stop is the Volcano and the Hot Springs, where you can enjoy a therapeutic swim. As you continue sailing in the Aegean blue waters, you’ll pass by Aspronisi, the Indian Rock, and Venetian lighthouse. You can take some spectacular photos before arriving at the Volcanic Red Beach. You can relax, swim, and snorkel before going to the White Beach and Mesa Pigadia. Meanwhile, an appetizing meal will be prepared for you on board. On the way back, you’ll witness the magnificent views of the Caldera rim before reaching the Ammoudi port.

Private Sunset Cruise

Staring from Ammoudi port at 15:00, the sunset tour lasts around 5 hours. After stopping at the Volcano and the Hot Springs for a quick, healing swim, you’ll witness the famous Indian Rock and Venetian Lighthouse. Afterwards, you’ll visit the Red Beach, White Beach, and Mesa Pigadia where you can relax, swim, or snorkel. A fresh meal will be served onboard. Before going back to the Ammoudi port, you’ll stop to see the sun dip into the Aegean blue waters. The majestic Oia sunset will be the highlight of this tour.

Unforgettable Sunset Cruise

It was an absolute top class cruise! Captain Adam let us tailor the cruise to our liking and Stefania was so wonderful. She took great care of us the entire time with a big smile on her face. The dinner was a highlight of our trip and the service was top notch. Getting out on the water in Santorini is a must and there's no better way to do it.

Best of the best

Highly recommend for overall experience in this must do activity. Took my wife for her birthday and it was her favourite thing we did on the island.

Absolutely! Greece is one of the safest countries to swim in. You will be glad to know that sharks in the Aegean Sea (usually from species such as dogfish) are harmless, sightings are extremely rare while attacks are unheard of! 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.
