Excitement and wonderful moments at the sea await you at this Luxurious Catamaran Cruise around the island of Santorini! It will be the best experience ever!

This small-group Catamaran Cruise is the ideal choice for people who wish to explore famous parts of Santorini from the sea, in great comfort and with the feeling of freedom that you get when riding the waves, surrounded by beautiful images of the unique Santorini landscape.

There are two different cruises to choose from, the 5-hour Day Cruise and the 5-hour Sunset Cruise, both embarking from the port of Vlychada on the south side of the island. Free transportation from/to your hotel is included.

Both cruises follow the same itinerary, with the first amazing spot that you will witness being the beautiful Red Beach, with its high surrounding cliffs and the extraordinary color, that catches the eye of anyone who sees it. Next, you will continue cruising to reach the famous White beach, where you can take the most stunning photos of the wild landscape around it. After, follows a stop at Mesa Pigadia Beach, where you will have some time to enjoy a refreshing swim in the clear waters or snorkel and explore the amazing underwater world. Snorkeling equipment is provided during the cruise. As the tour continues, you will pass by some interesting formations on the Caldera cliffs, called the Indian Rock, as well as you will see the beautiful Venetian Lighthouse, which is a wonderful site of historical significance. After, get ready to visit the imposing Volcano of Santorini, feel its wild atmosphere and take a mud bath in the beneficial waters of the springs around it. The water there is full of sulfur, which is therapeutic, but make sure that you wear an old pair of swimsuits preferably in a dark color so that it will not get ruined. Next, you will pass by the picturesque Old Port below Fira. Set eyes in this amazing location, which used to be the main port of Santorini, before returning back to Vlychada for the end of the tour.

For those who wish to experience watching the breathtaking sunset of Santorini on board, the 5-hour Sunset Cruise is what you are looking for. The magic moment that the sun disappears into the sea and the amazing colors that the sky takes, will surely stay in your mind forever!

Both cruise options provide a delicious BBQ meal on board, with a choice between meat and fresh seafood, prepared with the finest local ingredients. Moreover, free Santorini wine, beers, and soft drinks are included in both options.

Wait no more to live this unique cruising experience! The best summer memories are about to come!

A wonderful cruise

This cruise was the perfect way to see Santorini from the water. Staff, food, boat, drinks were all perfect! Everything, from the pick up and drop off from out hotel, to the swim stops along the way were great. It was well organized and a must too while in Greece! Highly recommend!
