Experience unparalleled luxury with the Romantic Catamaran Cruise! Unforgettable moments await as you explore the most iconic spots aboard this lavish journey!

Embark on an exquisite 5-hour semi-private cruise, offering unmatched moments of luxury and relaxation on the island. This captivating journey unfolds aboard an opulent Lagoon 560 or Ipanema 58 catamaran, gracefully navigating toward the island's most enchanting shores and hidden gems. Tailored for couples, newlyweds, and friends alike, the generous size of the vessels ensures special moments aboard, creating an intimate experience within the semi-private setting. This makes it a perfect choice for couples celebrating their honeymoon, as it offers an unforgettable experience at an exceptional price.

Guests can enjoy the flexibility of choosing between two options: the Daytime and Sunset tours. The 5-hour Day cruise, commencing at 9:30 AM, follows a fixed itinerary that encompasses the island's renowned sites. On the other hand, the 5-hour Sunset cruise sets sail at 14:30, offering a breathtaking journey as the day transitions to evening. Whichever option you decide on, this cruise guarantees a unique experience at the sea!

Embark on this enchanting cruise departing from Ammoudi port in Oia village, tracing a scenic route to the southern part of the island. The journey begins with a visit to the Hot Springs near the renowned Volcano, where you can indulge in a therapeutic bath amidst extraordinary natural beauty. Continuing the course, sail past Aspronisi Island and Akrotiri village, marveling at the Venetian Lighthouse and the stunning rock formation named Indian Rock along the caldera cliffs, before reaching the famous Red Beach, one of the most picturesque and well-known beaches on the island. There, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea, explore the marine world, and enjoy the breathtaking surroundings. Proceeding to the next destination, discover the isolated White Beach, characterized by towering white cliffs, where you will relish some free time basking in the sun, capturing stunning photos, or exploring the deep waters while the onboard crew prepares a delicious BBQ meal. After, you will follow the route back to Ammoudi port for the end of the cruise. The sunset cruise offers an additional stop as it culminates in the most romantic setting witnessing the sunset below the iconic village of Oia, promising moments of romance and natural splendor.

Both cruise choices ensure a unique and lasting adventure in idyllic surroundings! Opting for the day cruise provides an excellent opportunity to indulge in swimming in the azure waters of the Aegean Sea and basking under the warm Mediterranean sun. Conversely, the sunset cruise caters to those seeking a more intimate and memorable moment, as it offers the unparalleled opportunity to witness the breathtaking sunset while enjoying the comfort of this opulent catamaran.

Treat yourself to a culinary pleasure while on the cruise with a delicious BBQ lunch or dinner served on board. Specially prepared on the spot by the skilled crew, the Greek menu features a delightful array, including Greek salad, shrimp saganaki, grilled chicken, pork skewers, and fresh fish. For vegetarians, there is the option to savor roasted vegetables, pasta with red sauce, and stuffed vine leaves. Accompanying the meal, there is a selection of drinks, such as white Santorinian wine, beers, and soft drinks, while to elevate the experience, each person receives one complimentary cocktail! Ensuring a harmonious and convenient experience, the cruise package includes round-trip transportation to and from your accommodation in an air-conditioned minibus, while throughout the cruise, the English-speaking crew caters to the guests’ needs, providing them with towels, snorkeling equipment, and swimming noodles if necessary.

Enhance your Santorini experience with an unforgettable voyage that surpasses the ordinary, painting your memories with the brushstrokes of romance and beauty!

Nice day

Setting is beautiful, so it’s hard to go wrong. The boat was clean and very petty, washrooms perfect. Dinner was good not great. My husband and I chose chicken, which was very dry. But the sides and salad were very tasty. Wine, beer and soda was offered. Cold beer ran out after an hour, so staff put warm beer in refrigerator as a option. That was disappointing. Only other disappointment was snorkeling spot really had no fish or underwater scenic views. It was a nice day, with beautiful views and sunset. It was comfortable and well run. Attention to detail as mentioned above was below average.
