Motor Yacht Cruise in Santorini with BBQ Food and Drinks

Our trip starts from Vlychada port and we set sail for the volcanic Red Beach where you can enjoy a swim for 30 minutes (snorkeling equipment is available). Our second 30-minute stop is at the secluded White Beach for another swim and we cruise across Akrotiri village afterwards in order to admire its beautiful lighthouse and Indian Rock, a spectacular rock formation on the caldera cliffs that resembles a human profile. Then we pass by the nearby uninhabited Aspronisi Island.

The third 30-minute stop is at the volcano’s famous hot springs where you will swim in therapeutic waters. Next we sail around the volcano and along the caldera cliffs so that you can take magnificent photos of the villages of Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and the picturesque village of Oia.

In Oia we’ll have time to relax, enjoy the stunning view or swim in private bays while we prepare a traditional meze and a delectable barbeque meal for you (tomato balls, saganaki cheese, split peas and other local specialties) accompanied by the finest Santorinian wines.

Upon return we go past the neighboring Therasia Island. After that, if you will select the sunset option, we will watch the magnificent sunset at the best point of the island ‒ the best way to end our trip. The tour finishes back in Vlychada port. Transfer from/to your hotel is included.

Great experience!

My husband and I often charter private boats for the day while traveling- it always is a highlight to our trips! . This boat trip did not disappoint! Every interaction from booking to the included hotel pickup to drop-off was great! Seeing the island from the water is spectacular! The boat had a crew member who gave us historical details about the region and also was a great photographer! The captain was friendly and cooked up a delicious lunch for us. It was my husband's birthday and they even had a delicious cake to surprise him with- such an unexpected lovely touch! We stopped at the Volcanic Hot Springs and also stopped a couple times to swim and relax in the crystal clear beautiful Sea. It was a wonderful day on the Sea taking in all of the beauty Santorini has to offer. Would recommend this company and crew again! , A great experience!

Amazing tour

This private boat trip was just amazing. We doubted wether the boat was going to look as good as visualized on the pictures, fortunately it did! The captain and tour guide were very kind and provided us with a lot of historical information as we passed the most beautiful spots of Santorini. We had plenty of drinks and enjoyed a fresh cooked meal made by the captain. The tour guide pointed out several diving spots and being the tour's highlight, we swam into the vulcano's hot springs. I would highly recommend others to have this private boat tour, they certainly won't be disappointed! Greetings from Holland.
