Explore the stunning beauty of Santorini aboard our motor yacht as you cruise along the caldera and volcanic islands. With its state-of-the-art technology, this innovative motorboat promises an unforgettable cruise experience!

The SeaRay Sundancer 265, is a sleek and graceful vessel that gracefully dances across the waters of Santorini. Choose from a 5-hour Morning Cruise or a 5-hour Sunset Cruise and indulge in an unforgettable journey that will leave you with lifelong memories.

Our Mercedes Vito or Mercedes CLA180 coupe will pick you up from your hotel or any convenient location of your choice before we set sail from Vlychada marine. Prepare to visit the most famous beaches in Santorini including the stunning Volcanic Red Beach, the White Beach, and the Mesa Pigadia Beach.

Experience the freedom to enjoy Santorini's beaches at your own pace! You can decide whether to take a refreshing swim or simply relax and soak up the stunning surroundings. With up to an hour at each stop, you'll have plenty of time to fully immerse yourself in the beauty of Santorini's beaches. Onboard, you'll indulge in a refreshing welcome drink and a variety of fresh fruit as you soak up the stunning scenery. Enjoy unlimited soft drinks, water, local wine, and ouzo to complete your remarkable sailing adventure!

As we continue our journey, we'll cruise past the Indian rock and the island's lighthouse, taking in the stunning views along the way. Our next stop is at the famous Hot Springs, where you can swim for around 30 minutes. We'll then make a round of the impressive Volcano of Santorini, where you'll have the chance to admire its unique volcanic features, before cruising to Therasia Island.

While in Therasia, you can discover the charming Manolas village, swim, and if you're feeling peckish, treat yourself to a meal at a traditional Greek tavern. (Please note that this is not included in the price.)

On the way back, we cruise around the caldera's cliffs, giving you the chance to take some amazing pictures of the gorgeous villages of Oia and Epta Pedes (which is only accessible by boat), as well as the charming port of Ammoudi and the caldera villages of Imerovigli, Firostefani, and Fira. If you have opted for the Sunset option, our journey will take us toward the enchanting sunset on the open sea near Akrotiri where you'll experience the magic of Santorini's sunset onboard our yacht. After a day of adventure, we'll return to Vlychada Marine, where our team will make sure you arrive back at your accommodation safely. You'll leave the tour with a beautiful sun-kissed glow and memories to last a lifetime!

Let us take you on a journey to discover the unique beauty of this island, in a way that only we can show you!

Great experience with a little room for improvement

It was a great experience. The driver was on time to pick us up. The communication team was very active and responded to our queries before the trip very promptly. The boat’s Captain - who addressed himself as Captain Jack Sparrow😂 - was well informed, polite, and punctual. He stopped the yacht at a few points where we enjoyed diving into the open waters. He made sure to stop in areas that weren’t very crowded so that we could have a private experience. He was cautious enough to warn us before the waters became rough so that we could sit tight. Just an overall lovely experience Small areas for improvement: (this is just a feedback, it doesn’t mean that we didn’t enjoy our experience) - the mink fridge on the yacht was probably not the most effective and our beers were just a few degrees colder than room temp. They could maybe add an ice box to the yacht to keep items cool. - the snacks on board included some fruit and turkey sandwiches. Maybe add a pack or two of chips or nuts or something? These are the only two areas which could enhance the experience even more. Other than that - fab experience! Would definitely recommend to everyone.

Must Do in Santorini!

This trip has it all for you to see and experience the best Santorini has to offer from the coast. A beautiful private Sea Ray boat (with toilet) takes you around, stopping for you to swim at the most stunning locations at your leisure. Our captain was amazing, and very accomodating. We had the best time exploring without sharing the experience with large groups. Would definitely do again. Thank you!
