A cruise with the motor yacht “Oniro” (Greek for dream) is going to make your dreams come true and fulfill your needs on the island of Santorini. As you cruise the Aegean Sea you will lay eyes on spectacular landscapes and the jaw-dropping caldera, enjoy magnificent vistas of Santorini and its Volcano, and have the chance to admire its attractions as well as have a swim in crystal-clear waters.

Of course, the cruise itself highlights the whole experience as you can explore Santorini in luxury and great comfort and relax on the deck or in the lounge while sunbathing, having a drink, or savoring a delicious meal on board. It is actually the first semi-private cruise in Santorini that offers a 5-course meal in the sunset cruise option, created by a renowned chef. All meals are entirely prepared on board using the finest and the freshest ingredients available that day.

You can choose between the Daytime Buffet Lunch Cruise that departs from Vlychada port at 10:00 and finishes at around 15:00 and the Sunset 5-Course Dinner Cruise that starts from Vlychada port at 15:30 and ends after sunset. The Sunset Cruise’s asset is that it gives you the opportunity to see the sought-after sunset of Santorini in the best possible way.

All cruises sail past the wondrous Red beach and White beach, the beautiful Lighthouse of Akrotiri, and Indian Head Rock which is an admirable natural feature of the caldera. Then, the yacht reaches the volcanic islands of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, where you will have the chance to see a Volcano from a close distance, admire its wild beauty, and feel the volcanic atmosphere all around. Following, the next visit is to Mesa Pigadia beach, a lovely small cove that owns impressive volcanic cliffs, where you can take a nice swim or try snorkeling.

Based on the day’s sea conditions, your captain will anchor at the most ideal place for you to enjoy your buffet lunch or 5-course dinner. The price is all-inclusive and includes transportation from and to your hotel, the meal prepared on board, unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks, water, coffee, tea, and the use of towels, snorkeling equipment, and free Wi-Fi.

Un moment plaisant

Une très belle parenthèse dans notre séjour à Santorin ! Un joli bateau bien entretenu, un équipage très professionnel et adorable, un repas excellent ( le poisson, un délice !!! ), deux endroits de baignades magnifiques. Merci beaucoup pour ce moment !

Amazing day!

Wonderful experience! This cruise far exceeded our expectations. We booked the day before and the booking information came through quickly and clearly from the team. Once we were picked up from our hotel we were informed that we were the only guests who had booked that day and we had the whole boat to ourselves!! From start to finish the staff were very attentive, friendly and professional, and literally provided everything we could want and more… The food was amazing! Thank you for a great experience!

A must do activity with Sunset view in the evening.

Had a great experience in the yacht. We are group of 9 people and crew prepared a nice dinner and drinks. Its a lifetime experience especially in Santorini to have a Sunset view watching from Yacht rather than from Oia. Well organized!, Wonderful experience!
