Light Sea breeze, bright summer sun, relaxing atmosphere, and the most astounding landscape, are the highlights of this Private Catamaran cruise around the island of Santorini! It’s an experience that guarantees carefree moments at the sea!

A Private Catamaran cruise around Santorini is the best way to explore this beautiful island and spend a lovely day with your loved ones. This Private cruise, with one of the most modern and luxurious catamarans on the island, is the ideal choice and will offer you the most amazing and adventurous time at the sea. You can choose between the 5-hour Day tour and the 5-hour Sunset tour, according to your preferences. Either choice will fascinate you!

During the 5-hour Day tour, starting from the small fishing port of Ammoudi, you will sail below the Caldera with the highly impressive rocks, until you reach the unique Volcano of Santorini. Get ready to be surprised by how imposing the atmosphere there, is, and enjoy your first stop at the famous Hot Springs around it. This famous thermal spa, with the water full of sulfur, will provide an alternative mud bath and an experience that you have never felt before.

As you will continue sailing, you will pass the small Aspronisi island and reach the huge Indian Rock formations and the Venetian Lighthouse, which are located in the south part of the island, in Akrotiri. Enjoy this amazing view from the deck of the catamaran, with the company of a nice drink and your beloved people! Next, get ready for a refreshing dive off-board at the clear waters of the White Beach, with the wild cliffs surrounding it, and taste a flavorsome BBQ meal prepared on board with the best ingredients. Soft drinks, white local wine, and beers are also included in the tour. The last stop will be at the famous Red Beach. There, you will have some time to swim and even snorkel if you are a curious diver, or just relax and take nice photos of the amazing scenery around. The tour ends in Vlychada port. Free transportation from/to your hotel is included.

The 5-hour Sunset tour follows the opposite route, starting from Vlychada and finishing at Ammoudi port, but includes one more magic moment, the mesmerizing sunset of Santorini. When you reach a spot below Oia village, you will have the chance to witness this unique spectacle that you will remember forever!

Spend the best summer day on board this Private Catamaran Cruise and have the time of your life!

Excellent experience!

Undoubtedly, the best sunset boat tour in the sea that day. We were having a DJ with music out loud and the atmosphere was just great. You could see our differences compared to the other boats (chill and relaxing).

The cataraman experience was awesome however being a non swimmer, I could not experience the water as I was told there were no life jackets on board. ???? This was very disappointing.

Sunset Oia Sailing Cruises

Dear Sir/Madam, We are so excited that you had a good time on our catamaran Please note that we do have life jackets on board and liferafts on board. We do not offer life jackets as it is only for emergency. Best regards, George
