Awaken your senses while cruising with your friends on a Private Catamaran Tour around the majestic Santorini island! Discover the island's hidden treasures and spend the most memorable time at the sea!

Wish to experience one of the highlights of Santorini? Embark on a Private Cruise to the most scenic locations on the island, get amazing images of the impressive Caldera and the cliff-hanging villages, admire the untamed secluded beaches, and take your friends to the most unique cruising experience of your summer holidays!

There are two tour options to choose from, the 5-hour Day Cruise and the 5-hour Sunset Cruise, which start and finish at the port of Vlychada. Both tours provide free pick-up/drop-off from your hotel, making the experience even more stress-free. Embarking from Vlychada, on the south part of the island, your adventure will lead you to the famous Red beach, where you can either take a refreshing swim in the clear waters or appreciate the breathtaking reddish cliffs before you continue your cruise passing by the unique White beach and Mesa Pigadia beach. Witness the volcanic scenery at its best and capture the most amazing photos of your vacation!

As you continue sailing, don't forget to look up at the enchanting surroundings and spot the mesmerizing Indian Rock formations and the Venetian Lighthouse atop the Caldera cliffs, before heading towards your next destination.

The most exciting part of the journey is exploring the awe-inspiring Volcano of Santorini and the captivating Hot Springs. You will have the opportunity to get up close to the volcanic islands and soak in the warm and rejuvenating waters of the Hot Springs before cruising towards the tranquil Therasia island. Take a dip in the crystal-clear waters again and then head to the small Old port. Get the chance to enjoy the striking views of the picturesque Old Port, below Fira Town, and continue sailing along the massive Caldera cliffs until you reach Vlychada port for the end of your cruise.

Opting for the Sunset Cruise offers the extra perk of witnessing the world-famous Santorini sunset with the company of a glass of Prosecco wine, as you make your way back. While on board, relish a delectable BBQ lunch or dinner, prepared with the freshest local ingredients, and served alongside unlimited local wine, beer, and other beverages. Fresh fruits and traditional handmade desserts will round off this fantastic experience!

Unforgettable summer memories are just within reach, so wait no more and book your Private Cruise today! You owe it to yourself and your beloved ones!
