Catamaran Cruises

Private Luxury Catamaran Cruise in Santorini with full BBQ meal & Drinks

A luxurious Lagoon 450 is the ideal vessel for the ultimate private cruise around Santorini and nearby islands. It features modern equipment, lavish indoors and outdoors, relaxing spacious areas and fantastic views. Passengers can explore the coastal gems of the island of Santorini, and not only, in great comfort and live a unique experience, one of the most magnificent one can have in Santorini. There are 3 different private tours to choose from: a daytime, a sunset and a full-day cruise. They all start from the marina of Vlychada and end back there and they include free pick up and drop off service, snorkeling equipment and, of course, a delicious BBQ meal on board and drinks. Keep in mind that as the cruises are private, you can add or remove stops according to your preferences, based on the weather and time limitations. Don’t forget to bring your sun lotion, a hat, a light jacket and a camera.

The Day Private Sailing Catamaran Cruise departs daily at 10:00 whereas the Sunset Private Sailing Catamaran Cruise departs daily at 15:00 and they both last for about 5 hours. They follow the same suggested itinerary setting sail first for the wondrous Akrotiri village where you can set eyes on the breathtaking Red Beach and White Beach, two perfect examples of what makes Santorini a unique volcanic island. You will take photographs of amazing sceneries, red and white volcanic cliffs respectively as their names indicate, and spectacular waters. The first stop for swimming is at Mesa Pigadia Beach, a picturesque small cove where the volcanic rocks compose an impressive landscape once again. It is highly recommended to use the snorkeling gear to explore the amazing seabed. Then, before reaching the sulfur springs of the volcano, you will have the chance to admire Indian Rock, an interesting rock formation on the caldera that resembles an Indian’s face and the adorable Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri. At the sulfur springs you will have a special swim in warm mineral waters that own therapeutic properties and constitute one of the highlights of the tour. (Choose dark colored bathing suits for this occasion.)

The next stop is at the residual volcanic islet of Nea Kammeni or at the neighboring island of Therasia, depending on the weather, for more swimming and a lovely gastronomic experience on board. The menu includes Greek salad with organic products and Cretan oil, tzatziki and grilled feta cheese, peppers and mushrooms for appetizers. The main course is either chicken fillet souvlaki, sausages and grilled pita bread or sea bream with shrimps. The vegetarian option is spaghetti Napolitan (red sauce). There is also fresh fruit and unlimited water, sparkling water, beer and white wine. The sunset cruise provides one last stop, the most anticipated one, in order to relish the jaw-dropping spectacle of the sunset in Santorini.

The Full-Day Private Sailing Catamaran Cruise, on the other hand, starts daily at 10:00 and lasts up to 10 hours. What is special about this option is that you can choose the vessel type of your preference and have the opportunity to visit more islands and points of interest, such as the old port of Fira, the charming Armeni Bay, Seven Holy Youths Church and Tripiti Spot, a remarkable cave in Therasia. You can choose to sail around the caldera and the island of Santorini or visit the nearby island of Ios or Koufonisia, or even better sail to four different islands. Whichever cruise you select, you are sure to have the time of your life and gain an unforgettable experience.
