Yacht Cruises

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

A private cruise is ideal for those who seek privacy and tailor-made for special events, such as a wedding proposal or a reception. The luxurious yacht is fit for a king and offers high-end amenities and comfort as well as a dreamy experience to you and your beloved ones. In addition to the amenities, during the private cruise, you will be offered a gourmet five-course meal, a welcome prosecco, cocktails, fruit salad and fresh flowers on your dining table. The gourmet meal is especially prepared for you on board with fresh ingredients and local products. 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.

There are four different cruise options to choose from: 5-hour Daytime Lunch Cruise, 5-hour Sunset Dinner Cruise, Moonlight Cruise and Full Day Cruise. All cruises depart from Vlychada port and set sail for the volcano. On the way they go past the famous and most-photographed Red Beach, the distinctive White Beach, the admirable lighthouse of Akrotiri and an intriguing rock formation of the caldera cliffs called Indian Head Rock. When you reach the volcanic islands of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, you will take delight in a special swim in the healing waters of the volcano’s hot springs. The other swimming stop is at the charming Mesa Pigadia Beach where, besides swimming in crystal-clear waters, you can go snorkeling. Along the way, the striking views all around you and the wild natural beauty of the island will most assuredly captivate you.

In the Sunset Cruise, you get the opportunity to admire the magical sunset of Santorini on board before returning back. If you choose the Moonlight Cruise, in addition to the captivating sight of the sunset, you will relish a full moon too. What is special about this cruise is that only a few days of the year you can see a full moon and it is definitely the highlight of a private cruise on the romantic island of Santorini. Finally, during the Full Day Cruise, you will be offered additional stops for swimming, a stop at the neighboring island of Therasia and the chance to see the picturesque Ammoudi port, below the beautiful Oia caldera settlement.
