Modern-style, luxury, and comfort are met in this Private Yacht cruising experience exploring the most prominent parts of Santorini island. Live the most precious moments at the sea with your loved ones and fill them with romance, as you are sailing across places of matchless beauty!

This luxury yacht is ready to offer you the most amazing experience at the sea in the magnificent Santorini landscape. Elegance is pictured in every space, as well as high-class amenities and service, altogether creating an idyllic environment that will accompany your perfect day at the sea.

Bring your partner or friends and embark on a cruise that will suit your preferences. You can choose among the 4-hour Day tour, the 4-hour Sunset tour, a Full-Day tour around Santorini, or an 8-9 hours Full Day tour that will travel you to the neighboring island of Ios. Either choice will ensure a superb time with your loved ones!

During the 4-hour tours, starting from Ammoudi port, below the graphic village of Oia, you will head for your first stop close to the calm island of Therasia. It’s a perfect spot for taking the most magnificent photos and admiring the simple and traditional beauty of this volcanic island, up-close. As you will continue, you will sail past the small Aspronisi island, an aftermath of the volcanic eruption that occurred in Santorini, and reach the interesting Indian Rock formations and the Venetian Lighthouse, standing still on the top of the Caldera cliffs in Akrotiri village. After, get ready to witness the most extraordinary places that you have ever seen, the famous Red Beach and White Beach. There, you will have some time to refresh yourself with a nice dive and swim in their clear-blue waters or gaze at the breathtaking scenery surrounding them. Both tours finish back at Ammoudi port, but the sunset tour provides one more magical moment, the view of the stunning Santorini sunset below the village of Oia! It’s a moment that you will remember forever!

The Full-Day options will give you and your group more time at the sea and will fill you with wonderful images of Santorini or even give you the chance to visit famous places in Ios, like Manganari Beach, 3 Klisies Beach, and Chora of Ios. All of the tours include a palatable gourmet BBQ meal, prepared on the spot with the finest ingredients, along with soft drinks, beers, juices, and 1 bottle of premium white Santorinian wine. Also, free pick up/drop off at your hotel is included.

Get ready to meet the original Santorini beauty and have the time of your life in this unique luxurious cruising experience!

Sunset BBQ Cruise

My family booked this cruise for our trip to Santorini with high expectations and they were all exceeded! The crew was fantastic and very friendly, the food was incredible and the sunset was the perfect ending to a great excursion. We had three kids (17,15 and 12) and they all had a great time.

Out of world experience

It was an out of world experience. The crew was amazing and very helpful and friendly in every way possible. The food was awesome and made fresh on the cruise. It was life changing experience of watching sunset from the cruise. I highly recommend everyone to experience at least once in lifetime. I would try this every time I visit Santorini. It was the best time of my life !!
