Whichever option you select, these private tours promise exclusive snapshots of rich and personalized services that will linger in your mind forever!

5-Hour Day or Sunset Cruise

Set sail from the southern marina of Vlychada and follow the coastline until you reach the Red Beach in Akrotiri, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island with a distinct red color caused by the mineral-rich iron soil. Then, head to the beautiful White Beach, which you can only access by boat, as well as Mesa Pigadia Beach, and Kambia Beach, a serene shoreline adorned with smooth, ebony pebbles and offering a pleasant vista. A stop there for swimming and snorkeling is highly recommended since it is difficult to resist the crystal-clear blue waters with the vibrant underwater world and reefs. Subsequently, moving towards the Venetian Lighthouse, you will sail below the Indian Rocks, passing by caves and rock formations, characteristic of the Santorini landscape. Then, the motor yacht will enter the Caldera of the island, scrutinizing from afar the traditional villages of Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, and the overwhelming rock formations consisting of basalt and pumice. From that point, you will see everything opening in front of your eyes! From there, you will head to the volcanic islands of Palea and Nea Kammeni, where lies the crater of the Volcano. You will have the opportunity to sail around it and have a full view of it, as well as stop at the Hot Springs to swim in the sulfurous waters, which offer a natural spa. Last but not least, a visit to the tranquil and delightful Therasia island, where you will have the chance to splash around in the pristine waters and enjoy amazing panoramas. Additionally, selecting the Sunset option allows you to admire the exceptional sunset near Akrotiri!

10-hour Full-Day Cruise

The Private Full-Day Cruise commences from Vlychada Marina and concludes after applauding the majestic sunset near Akrotiri. This extended journey, built upon the captivating sites spotlighted in the 5-hour Private Day and Sunset Cruises, bestows an enriched exploration. Revel in the view of Oia village from up close and venture to the crystalline Armeni Beach and Eftapedes Beach for refreshing halts dedicated to swimming and snorkeling! Navigating the Caldera side of Santorini, you'll also sail within reach of Santorini’s other aesthetic locations, the Old Port, and two serene coastlines in Therasia Island, experiencing this way a comprehensive and immersive adventure of the Aegean's oceanic wonders!

Choose the Private Day Cruise, and get welcomed to soak up the splendor of the island in the sunlight, creating indelible memories set against the scenic elegance of the Mediterranean. Alternatively, the Private Sunset Cruise offers a magical evening, where the vivid shades of the descending sun form a stunning exhibition in the sky! Opting for the Private Full-Day Cruise, ensures an extensive exploration from early in the morning to dusk, allowing for more stops, and offering the possibility to diversify your experiences!

Pamper in a taste bud bliss on this unique Private Motor Yacht Cruise, featuring a succulent BBQ menu on board! Savor the deep flavors of grilled chicken fillet and a choice of seafood, including fish fillet and shrimps, complemented by a fresh Greek salad with feta cheese, as well as a serving of pasta in red sauce, and freshly baked bread accompanied by a variety of dips. Completing this Greek gastronomic voyage, a selection of local wine, beers, and soft drinks are offered on board, while in the Full-Day Option, a second included meal enhances this incredible experience! Additionally, this exceptional journey is made complete with free round-trip transportation from/to your accommodation for your convenience.

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!
