Private 4-Hour Cruise around the Caldera of Santorini

Embarking on the 4-Hour Private option initiates at Vlychada Marina. Commencing with a visit to Red Beach and White Beach, you have the chance to revel in a revitalizing swim in the crystal-clear azure waters. The journey continues, traversing the Indian Rocks and Venetian Light House, where you can explore the world of snorkeling! Amidst this cruise, you can either marvel at the splendid shorelines and picturesque panoramas or bask in the sun's embrace on the front deck. Subsequently, the route leads to the Hot Springs of the famous Volcano, offering a therapeutic opportunity for a swim. Progressing, you'll sail by Therasia Island, where the boat provides an enchanting viewpoint, and a pause at Therasia awaits! Here, a satisfying meal paired with local wine and dessert awaits you at a traditional tavern. Ultimately, the voyage concludes with your return to the same initiated Port.

Full-Day Cruises to Neighboring Islands

The Full-Day Private Cruises offer a 10-hour excursion, providing ample opportunity to enjoy an extended period on the Aegean Sea and discover the exquisite shorelines, rock formations, and inlets of the charming and essential islands in close proximity, such as Ios, Paros, Mykonos, Folegandros, Milos, Antiparos, as well as the Small Cyclades (Irakleia, Schoinousa, Koufonisi). While the lavish high-speed boat glides along the coastlines, you'll have the chance to appreciate the majestic scenery from another point of view and shoot the most breathtaking photos of all time. Consequently, you'll have the chance to marvel at the one-of-a-kind charm of secluded and sheltered coves!

The unforgettable experience of basking in the sun while onboard the high-speed boat awaits you to have the most unforgettable experience of your life!

Best Boat Cruise!!!!

Totally worth paying a little more to get a cruise with less people. Get to enjoy the sea a lot more. Food was great and staff was amazing. I would do this trip again in a heart beat if we go back to Santorini. If you are not looking for a party boat, and just want to relax and enjoy the sea and sunset, this is the cruise for you.
