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. Whichever cruise you select, you are sure to have the time of your life and gain an unforgettable experience.

Best day of the trip!

Hard to put into words what an amazing experience we had. It started before we ever booked a trip with prompt, informative answers to all our questions. Then, we requested to change days once on the island as the weather looked to be better than the day we had planned. Without and trouble they agreed (we were in a slower season so during the peak tourist time I imagine this may not be possible) Then the boat trip (more in that in a minute). The great service continued when we realized we left a personal item on the boat and they were so easy to work with to get it back. Everyone we interacted with was fantastic. Now the boat- do it. Book it. You will not regret it. If you can afford it, book a private trip with just your family or friends. But I wouldn’t miss this even if you go with an unknown group. The water was as clear as I have ever seen water ...chilly when you jumped in...but enjoyable when the sun was up. The view of Oia, the caldera and the sunset was the best on the island - and we went end to end! Our crew recommended we take a longer trip across to another island with a more private beach. It was a 2 hour +|- ride which allowed us to just sit back and enjoy the ride. On the way home we stopped by the rocks in Amoudi Bay and admired Oia from below. The boat was gorgeous!!! Clean and well cared for!! The crew was kind, helpful and informative. And I haven’t even mentioned lunch!! The food was so good I had to get the recipe! Delicious! All in all- this was the best day for all 9 of us, from our 11 year old daughters, to ur 16 year old daughters, to the 22 year old son and the parents. Across the board the highlight of the trip.

Great Experience

A great time with the family and very well worth it. Amazing views. Very good guides and the food was lovely too- I was however disappointed that there is no longer chartered route to the hot springs. Although I have forgotten their names, the crew upon the Kallisti Catamaran was amazing. Especially the tour guide, if I only I could remember his name :/ Nevertheless, everything else was perfect. I would definitely recommend a private catamaran cruise to anyone. I myself would definitely go again :)

I hired the catamaran as a surprise for our 10 year wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. We had the most amazing day and the crew were absolutely fantastic and looked after us so well. They were so helpful and told us lots about the island :-) I would certainly recommend this company , Wonderful experience!

Fabulous in every way possible

We had such an amazing day celebrating my wife's 50th birthday with SantoriniView. From the moment we arrived to being dropped back at our hotel we were treated like royalty. The staff couldn't do enough for us, from explaining this history of this beautiful island to providing drinks and the most amazing lunch. Island hopping and swim stops culminating in the most beautiful ocean sunset couldn't have been more perfect and it was worth every penny to have our own yacht for the day..., A great experience!, Excellent!, Well organized!, Wonderful experience!, A must do., Our guide was awesome!
