Discover the beauty of Santorini like never before with a private yacht cruise that will take you on a journey to explore both famous and unexplored parts of the island. Immerse yourself in first-class service and relax with all the necessary amenities for a day at sea.

Embark on a private 5-hour or 10-hour full-day cruise from the charming fishing port of Ammoudi, located below the village of Oia, and set sail towards the tranquil Therasia Island, a beautiful small isle across the Volcano. Take your time and swim in the crystal-clear waters or use the provided snorkeling equipment to explore the underwater world near this beautiful island.

After this refreshing break, continue your journey to witness the impressive Volcano of Santorini. Enjoy a clear view of this historical location, from a few meters away, and indulge in a delicious BBQ meal prepared by the crew on board, paired with free local wine, beers, and soft drinks. The wild volcanic scenery around will definitely amaze you!

Upon finishing your meal, get ready to capture the most amazing images of the wild Caldera landscape and the lovely chapel of Holy Seven Youths at the small and charming Old Port below Fira. Take the most spectacular photographs and be prepared to be amazed. End your journey with a short visit to the picturesque small port of Armeni, which used to be one of the main ports of Oia.

For the sunset cruise option, get ready for the most captivating moment of the tour just before the cruise ends. Witness the mesmerizing spectacle of the Santorini sunset at the best spot, beneath the village of Oia, and relish in its beauty on board. This experience is sure to leave you spellbound. Your cruise will finish back at the port of Ammoudi, where you will be safely transported back to your accommodation.

Highlight of our Europe Trip

This sailboat cruise was the highlight of our entire Europe vacation. Everything was as advertised and even above and beyond. During booking, they asked for our food preferences and were able to accommodate all of our dietary restrictions. They picked us up directly from our hotel and allowed us to avoid making the difficult drive ourselves down to the dock. We were immediately brought out to the boat which was exactly as pictured. The captain and first mate were incredibly nice and spike clear English. The trip was customized to fit our wants and preferences. We got a very private sailing cruise to multiple beautiful locations with historical commentary from the crew. We snorkeled at multiple locations and were able to see fish. The crew made a delicious dinner right in front of us on board which was honestly the best meal of our whole trip. Finally we got to see a beautiful sunset out on the water before returning to port. Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone traveling to Greece. It provided us with amazing memories and pictures we'll have forverer!

Awesome afternoon

We had a brilliant time out on the boat with Andrea and Phillipos. From start to finish everything was very smooth, we were picked up and dropped off very efficiently in new comfortable cars. The guys on the boat were very accommodating and our glasses were always full. They told us lots about the islands and even put the sails up for a few hours of great sailing and boy did they know how to sail. Dinner was fantastic and we left full and happy. Definitely our favourite day in Santorini. highly rate!

Perfect day!

We had the BEST time on board the Anjelica, with Andreas and Filipos! They were super nice, professional and very attentive. We experienced actual, proper sailing and it was very clear they knew what they’re doing. The food was really good and perfectly timed. They also kindly took into consideration special requests. The whole experience was just perfect.

Experience the Caldera!

This was the highlight of our trip! Chris and Andrew let out the sails, made us a beautiful dinner and anchored for a sunset dip and view of the Caldera sunset! Perfect in every way.
