Live an unforgettable summer experience on Santorini with a Catamaran Cruise to the treasures of the island! It will be the highlight of your trip!

Enjoy the stunning scenery of the island with your friends or family and leave all your worries behind as you are cruising along scenic beaches, hidden coves on the Caldera rim, and serene neighboring islands. It’s a must-do experience during your summer holidays in Santorini! Whether you choose to perform the 5-hour Day Cruise or the 5-hour Sunset Cruise, the carefree moments on board are guaranteed! Both tour options, provide free pick-up/drop-off from your hotel, so the experience starts with an easy ride across the island until you reach the port of departure.

Embarking from Vlychada port, in the southern part of Santorini, you will start your sailing adventure from the famous Red beach, where you can marvel at the beautiful reddish cliffs or take a dip in the crystal-clear waters. A chance for a refreshing swim before heading to the remarkable White beach and Mesa Pigadia beach. The volcanic scenery at its glory will reveal before your eyes in these breathtaking locations, so get your cameras ready for memorable photos! Then, take in the mystical surroundings as you look up and spot the Indian Rock formations, and the Venetian Lighthouse, on the top of the Caldera cliffs, before your next destination.

The highlight of the tour is visiting the impressive Volcano of Santorini and the amazing Hot Springs. Get close to the volcanic islands and swim in the warm healing waters of the Hot Springs before sailing to the serene Therasia island. Another chance for a swim in the crystal clear waters, and then the view of the graphic Old Port below Fira Town, as you are sailing along the enormous cliffs of the Caldera.

If you opt for the Sunset Cruise, in addition to visiting the aforementioned beautiful parts of the island, you will have the chance to embrace the world-renowned Santorini sunset before arriving back at Vlychada port.

During the cruise, the crew will prepare a delicious lunch or dinner, made with the best local ingredients, accompanied by unlimited local wine, beers, and beverages. As the sun sets, you will be offered a glass of sparkling Prosecco wine! Also, fresh fruits and traditional handmade desserts will provide a sweet ending to this amazing experience!

Don't delay experiencing this cruising adventure any longer! The most exceptional summer recollections are on the horizon!
