Yacht Cruises

Luxury Motor Yacht Cruise with Gourmet 5-Course Lunch or Dinner

A cruise with the luxurious 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 gourmet meal. It is actually the first semi-private cruise in Santorini that offers a gourmet five-course meal created by the renowned Sea Side Restaurant. All meals are entirely prepared on board using the finest and the freshest ingredients available that day.

You can choose between the Daytime Lunch Cruise that departs from Vlychada port at 10:00 and finishes at around 15:00 and the Sunset 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. There is a third option too, the Moonlight Cruise, which begins from Vlychada port at 15:30 and finishes two hours after sunset and is available only on the nights there is a full moon.

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 sails between Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, the two residual volcanic islands, where you will swim in the volcano’s therapeutic hot springs that constitutes a unique experience. The other stop for swimming is at Mesa Pigadia Beach, a lovely small cove that owns impressive volcanic cliffs, where you can also try snorkeling.

Based on the day’s sea conditions, your captain will anchor at the most ideal place for you to enjoy your gourmet lunch or dinner. The price is all-inclusive and includes transportation from and to your hotel, the gourmet five-course meal, unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks, water, coffee and tea and the use of towels, snorkeling equipment and Wi-Fi. To ensure your comfort and safety, the number of guests is limited to 10 per cruise.

We serve five gourmet dishes that are prepared and cooked on board. Passengers can choose between fish or meat for the main course, or a vegetarian one.
  • The first dish is a green salad with cherry tomatoes and hot melted French cheese for dressing.
  • The second dish is fava beans with octopus and capers, garnished with fresh onions and molasses.
  • The third dish is white Santorinian aubergines in rolls with homemade basil pesto, fresh tomatoes, rocket and parmesan cheese.
  • As for the fourth dish, customers can choose between fish or meat, or a vegetarian dish. The fish is sea bass with sautéed spinach and baby potatoes. The meat is a fillet of beef with baby potatoes, asparagus and parmesan cheese sauce. For vegetarians we serve spaghetti.
  • Our last dish is the dessert ꟷ yogurt and homemade sour cherry jam, adorned with mint leaves.

Highlight of our Holiday

We went on our Honeymoon to Santorini and booked this cruise on a Friend's recommendation. We were picked up from our Hotel and dropped back after. We got great service on the Cruise. We were shown around the great sights of the coast. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area. We got Lovely Food on board and plenty of Wine to wash it down with. They stopped n 2 locations for Swimming. Well worth the price of this cruise. They even brought out the Champagne to celebrate our Wedding. I would Highly recommend this cruise. Wonderful experience!

Turbulent but a good time!

The seas were a bit rough the day my five friends and I went and were unable to go to certain spots but still fun . The captain was charming ( a great sport w/ pictures) as well as his staff. The food at times was flying across our faces and bad wine sliding and spilling but we definitely had fun .
