A private cruise is ideal for those who seek calmness and comfort and a tailor-made experience for special events, such as a wedding proposal or a reception. The yacht is fit for a king and offers high-end amenities and comfort as well as a dreamy experience for you and your beloved ones. In addition to the amenities, during the 5-hour private sunset cruise, you will be offered a 5-course meal, a welcome prosecco, cocktails, fruit salad, and fresh flowers on your dining table. The meal is specially prepared for you on board with fresh ingredients and local products. The price is all-inclusive and includes transportation from and to your hotel, a fresh meal prepared on board, unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks, water, coffee, tea, and the use of towels, snorkeling equipment, and free Wi-Fi.

There are three different cruise options to choose from: the 5-hour day buffet lunch cruise, the 5-hour sunset five-course dinner cruise, and the 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, ensuring that you will have the best cruising experience and the most relaxing time! Next, they reach the volcanic islands of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, where you will have the chance to feel the volcanic atmosphere all around and admire the wild volcanic scenery up close. Following, get ready to visit 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 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.

Unforgettable moments

Blue Cruisers organized the best birthday in the world for my mother. ️ Food, music, flowers and even cake was there, it was amazing! I don't need to say how happy my mother was.

These unforgettable moments are priceless., Excellent!
