Nothing Compares with Luxurious Private Cruising across Santorini on a Speedboat!

If you want to plan a memorable Santorini vacation with your loved ones or want to take adventure and thrill to the next level on the stunning island, you need to treat yourself with a private luxury motor yacht cruise!

Riva motor yacht is specially designed to offer you a first-class experience, allowing you to cruise with style and comfort. The trip package includes transportation from and to your hotel in an air-conditioned bus, full snorkeling gear, maps with information about the island, and towels. A delicious lunch or dinner will also be served at a traditional Greek tavern in Therasia island, with a choice among fish, meat, or vegetarian menu, as well as salads, fruits, semi-sweet sparkling wine, and dessert.

You can relax and have the time of your life on the luxury motor yacht while exploring the stunning Santorini Island by sea.

You can choose a day trip, sunset trip, or full-day trip, depending on your unique interests and preferences.

Private Day Cruise

The Private Day trip starts from Vlychada Port. The first stop is the Red Beach, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the clear blue waters. The cruise will continue sailing across the White Beach, Black Mountain, and the historic lighthouse of Caldera. You can gaze at the magnificent beaches and beautiful landscapes or enjoy sunbathing on the deck. You’ll then head towards the Hot Springs for a therapeutic swimming experience. Next, you’ll sail across Therasia Island and Oia, where you will admire the beautiful view from the yacht, as well as stop at Therasia and enjoy a fulfilling meal with local wine, beer, and dessert at a traditional tavern there. Finally, you’ll return to the port.

Private Sunset Cruise

The sunset trip begins at 15.30 and allows you to witness the breathtaking sunset of Santorini. This trip follows the same route as the day trip. After having the time of your life at Red Beach, White Beach, Hot Springs, and Mesa Pigadia Beach, you’ll stop at Therasia island to enjoy a delicious dinner with local wine and fresh fruits. After the meal, you’ll have your breath taken away by the sight of the sun going down between the ethereal mountains of Santorini.

Full-Day Private Cruise

The Full-Day Private Cruise is a 10-hour trip, which allows you to spend more time at the sea and explore the beautiful beaches, cliffs, and bays of Santorini island. As the yacht sails past the beaches, the imposing Volcano, and the huge cliffs, you will get to admire the extraordinary Caldera from a distance, as well as small protected coves of unique beauty. The time you’ll spend on the yacht, relaxing under the sun, will be unforgettable!
