Boat Tours in Santorini

Yacht Cruises

All-inclusive Private Motor Yacht Cruise with on-board Lunch or Dinner

Set sail from the southern port of Vlyhada early in the morning and follow the coastline until you reach the Red Beach in Akrotiri, one of the most beautiful beaches of the island with a distinct red color caused by the mineral rich and iron soil. Then, head to the White Rocky Beach, which you can only access by boat. A stop for swimming and snorkeling is highly recommended since it is difficult to resist the crystal clear blue waters with the rich underwater environment and reefs.

Leaving the White Beach and heading to the Venetian lighthouse, sail below the Indian rocks through caves and rock formations, characteristic of the Aegean landscape. After sailing below the lighthouse, the yacht will turn and enter the caldera of Santorini. There, you will see everything opening in front of your eyes. The picturesque white houses hang from the cliffs like grapes off the cliff formations and the volcanic islands of Palea and Nea Kammeni. There, you will have the chance to sail below the traditional villages of Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and the overwhelming rock formations consisting of basalt and pumice. From there, head to the crater of the volcano and sail around it to have a full view of it and stop at the thermal springs for swimming at the sulfurous waters, that offer a natural spa.

Palia Kammeni, an inhabitant volcanic island next to the volcano, offers unique private bays and beaches, ideal for swimming and snorkeling, and perfect to enjoy your own privacy away from crowded locations. As you enjoy yourself, the attentive crew will prepare on-board a delicious fresh meal (lunch or dinner) consisting of a full menu with BBQ chicken fillets, fish fillets, shrimps, Greek salads, tzatziki dips and appetizers all accompanied with local wine, beers and cooling beverages.

Amazing

What an amazing day we had with our skipper Yannis and his helping hand Knobby. They were both knowledgeable about the island and the volcano’s history. We stopped off at all of the best spots and were given lunch which any great restaurant would be proud of. We ended up have some dancing on the top deck with music by ABBA. Fantastic trip and we would definitely recommend it. 5 stars, A great experience!, Excellent!, Wonderful experience!
