A tailor-made excursion around the island on a private catamaran it’s the ultimate experience. Treat your loved ones a luxurious tour and allow yourselves to feel like royalty.

The modern Lagoon 400 and Lagoon 380 are luxurious catamarans with a great level of comfort and elegant, spacious indoor and outdoor areas, ideal for a private excursion along with your beloved ones. You can choose the morning or the sunset 5-hour tour and jump at the chance to explore Santorini in the best possible way. Round transfers from and to your hotel as well as snorkeling equipment, towels, jackets, a map and free Wi-Fi are included in the price. The rate is up to four people but the total capacity is 14 passengers.

You will visit the most iconic beaches of the island, Red Beach and White Beach, where you can swim and go snorkeling in crystal-clear waters and lay eyes on incredible landscapes. Additionally, you will enjoy a mud bath in the volcano’s hot springs which constitutes a unique experience. Along the way you will become mesmerized by the fascinating view all around you as well as by some of Santorini’s attractions you will pass by, such as the admirable ancient lighthouse of Akrotiri village and an impressive rock formation on the caldera cliffs called Indian Rock.

What makes the excursion unique is the luscious barbeque meal on board. The Greek menu offers Greek salad, shrimp saganaki, grilled chicken or pork skewers, roasted vegetables, pasta with red sauce, and stuffed vine leaves (a meal for vegetarians is also available). The selection of drinks includes beer, soft drinks, and white Santorinian wine. Passengers can also choose the “sea barbeque experience”, a different optional menu (€400, up to four people). This extra supplement menu includes fresh fish, lobster, squid, and a bottle of Delamonte Brut Champagne.

The morning tour starts from Ammoudi port at 10:15 and sails below the caldera, towards the hot springs. Then it sets sail for the White Beach where you’ll have the barbeque on board. On the way, it sails past the island of Aspronisi, Akrotiri, ancient lighthouse, and Indian Rock. The next stop is at Red Beach and finally, the tour ends at Vlychada port. The sunset tour starts from Vlychada port at 15:15 and sets sail towards Red Beach and then White Beach for the barbeque dinner. Next, it sails past Aspronisi, ancient lighthouse, Akrotiri, and Indian Rock before it stops below the village of Oia for the outstanding sunset. The final stop is at the hot springs and the tour ends at Ammoudi port.

A MUST experience

It was 10 of us on board and every single said this was their best experience in Santorini! The staff was amazing and this was by far the best food I have ever had on a boat. We hired the boat and it was easily worth every penny! Thiete were only 2 staff members, including the captain, and they managed to cater to our every need and then some. They were very nice and funny! They even had a cake brought onboard for my husband, even the cake was delicious! This experience was a 10/10! I would highly recommend and will definitely use them again when I come back. , Excellent!, A great experience!

Santorini sailing adventure

Our group of 4 had a beautiful cruise. The crew was friendly and lunch was delicious. There was a little hiccup with booking but tour company quickly responded and took great care of us. I highly recommend this trip to see views from the sea.

An amazing time!

It was both kinda awkward and very cool that there were three staff for just my wife and I. We’ve never done a private cruise before. The captain spoke with us within the first 10 minutes of heading out and we talked game plan. It was awesome that we could choose how long we wanted to stay at each location. Everyone on the boat was courteous, nice, and quite helpful. It was awesome to just lounge around while we cruised! The boat felt very new and well taken care of. It was fun to hang out up front, around the sides, or in the back. The lunch was amazing! Legitimately one of the better meals we had. The lady that prepared most of the food was a wonderful cook. While they prepared everything, we got to bob around in the waters off the coast of red beach. It felt like a once in a lifetime experience. I can’t think of a single thing I’d change.
