The “Santa Maria” Sun Odyssey 52.2 is a luxurious yacht that lends itself to lavish private tours around the wonders of Santorini and the magnificent island of Ios as it is characterized by stateliness and owns all the modern amenities you need. Travellers can choose among 4 different cruises and their suggested itineraries but the fact that the cruises are private means that they can add or remove stops according to their preferences, based on the weather and time limitations. Each cruise provides free pick up and drop off service, snorkeling equipment, snacks and drinks. The menu includes Greek salad, a variety of cheese and cured meat products, fruit and unlimited water, sparkling water, beer and white wine. Passengers should bring a hat, sunblock, a light jacket and a camera.

The Day Private Luxury Cruise departs daily at 10:00 while the Sunset Private Luxury Cruise at 15:00 and they both last 5 hours. The Caldera & Therasia Private Luxury Sailing Cruise departs daily at 10:00 but lasts for 10 hours.

Off we go then to the Sulfur Springs for a dive at the volcanic waters where you feel the power of the volcano and the benefits of swimming in its therapeutic waters. The route will take us to the Lighthouse of Akrotiri, built by the French two centuries ago and the intriguing Indian Face Mountain where you will take some amazing photos. Then we would visit the beach of Mesa Pigadia or the Red Beach (depending on weather conditions and the wind); here you will have the chance to enjoy another dive and use the snorkelling gear to discover the underwater thrills.

After the light dinner/lunch we sail to the Old Port of Fira and following the caldera coastline we reach the hidden church of Eftapedes, the bay of Armeni minutes before we sail to enjoy Santorini’s spectacle; the amazing sunset! After living the experience of viewing the sunset on board we return at the bay of Ammoudi where our private owned mini-bus will be standing by to drive you back to the hotel!

The last option is the Santorini & Ios Private Luxury Sailing Cruise that departs daily at 10:00 and lasts for 10 hours. Starting from Amoudi Bay, you set sail for a full-day adventure where you will explore not only the aforementioned points of interest in Santorini and Therasia, but also the island of Ios. Ios owns golden sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, like Magganari Beach, but you can anchor at any other beach if you wish so. Here you have the chance to admire different landscapes than the wild volcanic ones in Santorini. Every cruise constitutes a lifetime experience at the dreamy island of Santorini and it will unquestionably offer you pleasant memories along with your co-travellers.

A dream

We do not usually write reviews but our experience was truly perfect. Dimitris was our captain and was very friendly, knowledgeable of the island, and accommodating. We were so impressed by the service of the crew. It was an experience we will never forget, worth every penny!
