Catamaran Cruises

Catamaran Cruise in Santorini with Greek Food & Drinks

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, and then journey by air-conditioned minivan to board a luxury catamaran and take a 5-hour cruise off the coast of Santorini.

Experience the romance and beauty of the island as you set sail from the southern port of Vlychada. Choose from a 10:30 AM or 3:30 PM departure and follow the coast to the red sands of Red Beach and the neighboring cove of White Beach. Jump in for a swim in the shallow waters of a private beach, if you desire. Benefit from the services and amenities of a fully equipped vessel, including complimentary towels and snorkeling equipment.

Venture below the imposing Indian Rocks and marvel at the sea caves and rock formations close to an old Venetian lighthouse. Get breathtaking views of the volcanic landscape as you travel through the middle of the caldera. Visit the hot springs for a healing mud bath, and then go to a private bay at Palea Kammeni Island to relax on deck or jump in for a swim. Frolic in the water as the crew prepares a buffet lunch or dinner to satisfy your hunger with Greek salad and traditional appetizers, accompanied by unlimited wine and soft drinks.

For the sunset option, journey out to open waters after dinner and watch a magnificent sunset in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Then, sail back to port, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Fantastic daytime cruise

Thoughally enjoyed this day cruise with the most helpful and fun loving crew. Picked up outside the accommodation on time, unlike our TUI trip!! Music, information food and wine were excellent. They could see I had a problem with mobility and gave my niece and I the best seat on the catamaran right next to the excellent captain. The only thing that spoilt it for us was as soon as lunch was over the wine stopped abruptly. I maybe understand the reasons but another one or two as we sat enjoying the return back to port would have been appreciated. Hence the lack of a star. After all they were very very small glasses!! Definately recommend but be prepared for a dry return to land., , A great experience! Even for a non swimmer
