Private Catamaran Cruise in Santorini with BBQ and Drinks

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 (meal for vegetarians 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 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.
