Set off on a journey to discover the hidden beauties of Santorini island and visit places that you have never witnessed before. Choose this Private Catamaran Cruise and live an experience that will surely amaze you!

This Catamaran boat is a nice choice for an affordable yet overwhelming cruising experience at the Aegean Sea! You will get nice images of all the wonderful parts of Santorini, relax on board with your loved ones and spend the most interesting day of your summer holidays!

The cruise provides a choice among a 5-hour Day tour, a 5-hour Sunset tour, and an 8-hour Full-Day tour. After free pick-up from your hotel, you will reach Vlychada port, where your private Catamaran will be waiting to introduce you to the most unique places of Santorini. Your first stop will be the famous Red beach, with the high reddish cliffs surrounding it, where you will have some time to take a swim and freshen up, before continuing your cruise visiting the beautiful White beach. Admire the wild scenery around and relax on deck while enjoying the sun and a glass of a fine Santorini wine!

As you will continue sailing, you will pass by the small Mesa Pigadia Beach, as well as the enormous Indian Rock formations on the south of the island, and you will have the chance to see the Venetian Lighthouse of Santorini, which is a historical building of unparalleled beauty, standing on the top of the Caldera cliffs. The next stop will be the unique Volcano of Santorini and the extraordinary Hot Springs around it. There, you will have some time for a second swim and the amazing experience of swimming in the beneficial waters, full of sulfur. It is an alternative spa, which is totally worth trying!

During the Sunset option, you will have the opportunity to witness the breathtaking view of the famous Santorini Sunset on board, which is undoubtedly a magical spectacle that you will remember forever! If your plans are to spend more time at the sea, then the 8-hour Full-Day tour will be the ideal choice for you, as you will have the chance to stay longer at the places that you will like most. Feel free to adjust your itinerary with the captain, and let him help you organize the best trip of your vacation!

All the tour options include a delicious lunch or dinner on board with the best local ingredients, along with unlimited local wine, beers, and beverages. Moreover, transportation from/to your hotel is also included.

We guarantee that a day spent on this Catamaran boat with your loved ones, will be a day worth remembering!

Perfect evening for the family

We had a wonderful time with Ellie and Thomas. We were a bit worried as we had a young child (3yo) and an older grandpa with low mobility, but they were so attentive and thoughtful, even suggesting small changes to the end of the day to make disembarking easier and faster which worked a treat. Extra points because we only booked with 2 hours notice! The boat itself was lovely, saw all the sights and swam with a bunch of fish! Also the food was fantastic! Anything Ellie cooks for you, you must eat! Ellie kept the drinks flowing as well, wine was great, and Thomas’ knowledge of santorini was excellent. Highly recommend

Fantastic Charter with Ellie and Thomas - it was our anniversary and showed us great service without being overwhelming. Very knowledgeable about the area. And a wonderful lunch freshly prepared onboard buy Ellie as we went for a swim. Just great, very natural perfect for us. Many thanks. Richard and Amanda

I booked an 8 hour day with Eleftheria and Thomas to surprise my husband for his 30th birthday and it was also during our honeymoon. When I tell you Eleftheria and Thomas went ABOVE AND BEYOND, I mean it. We will forever be grateful for this day. They are such a lovely couple and truly treated us like family while we were onboard their catamaran. We sailed to every spot you can think of, red beach, white beach, a private bay with cliff jumping spots (literally the only boat there!), under both Fira & Oia, Amoudi Bay, another cliff jumping spot, and back for sunset. WHAT A DAY! What an experience. During the day, Eleftheria was so attentive. If we wanted anything, we weren't to go get it, she genuinely wanted to grab it for us so we could spend every second together soaking in the views. Also, HER COOKING!!! YOU GUYS, you don’t understand. It’s the best meal we had in Greece. Everything was homemade and literally delicious. She saved some for later and we ended up finishing it off. I’ll still dream about this meal. Also, Thomas provided so much history of the island which was so incredible. Such a joyous couple to talk to. We ended the day with a surprise for my husband that I had NO IDEA they were planning. Eleftheria Bought a homemade chocolate cake for Jay and brought her favorite champagne for us to enjoy. The four of us enjoyed the cake together & again, when I tell you this was the best cake I’ve ever had, I mean it. We watched the sunset and didn’t want the day to end. Another highlight - Eleftheria basically was a personal photographer! She captured all of our special moments. I can’t recommend booking this enough. Not a single bad thing I could say about our day. 100% the best thing we did in Greece. BOOK NOW!!!!
