Private Luxury Motor Yacht Cruise in Santorini

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 on board with salmon or chicken fillet, 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 Thirasia Island and Oia and admire the beautiful view from the yacht. Before the trip ends, you’ll be served a fulfilling meal with local wine, beer, and dessert. 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 to enjoy a fulfilling dinner on board 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 to Ios Island

The Full-Day Private Cruise to Ios is a 10-hour trip that allows you to explore the beautiful beaches, cliffs, and bays of the famous island. As the yacht sails towards the Maganari Bay, you’ll witness a series of sandy coves shaping into several smaller beaches. The time you’ll spend on the yacht relaxing under the sun will be unforgettable!
