A private tour around the gifted island of Santorini and the neighboring islands is the perfect way of exploring beautiful sights and uncovering concealed treasures with the company of your friends or family!

What's better than a Private tour on the “Heaven Can Wait” Speedboat Sunseeker 37? It takes the cruising experience to a whole new level! Such a cruise is ideal for thrill-seekers, as the speed and the proximity to the sea give an exciting sensation. There are 3 private cruise options to choose from, and they all offer free pick up/drop off service at your hotel, snorkeling equipment, drinks, and a complimentary meal when we stop at Therasia Island.

The Private Day Cruise departs daily at 12:00 from Vlychada Marina and lasts up to 4 hours. First, you will take delight in a refreshing swim and try snorkeling at the jaw-dropping Red Beach, as its name indicates. Next, you will pass by two astounding beaches with unique landscapes of volcanic cliffs, crystal clear waters, and surprising colors, the White Beach, the scenic Mesa Pigadia Beach, an intriguing rock formation on the caldera that resembles an Indian’s face called Indian Rock, and the admirable Lighthouse of Akrotiri village.

As the cruising experience continues, you will reach Therasia Island with its tranquil atmosphere, where you'll get to enjoy a full complimentary meal at a local tavern. We will then get to the small bay of Ammoudi, below the picturesque village of Oia, and pass by the tiny chapel of Seven Holy Youths before you head to the residual Volcanic islets of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni, where, besides gazing at a lunar landscape, you will also dive in the sulfur springs of the volcano. Other coastal wonders of Santorini you will admire on the way are the quaint Old port of Fira and the picturesque bay of Armeni.

The Private Sunset Cruise starts daily at 16:00. It has the same departure port, duration, and suggested itinerary as the daytime cruise. They are both ideal for those who wish to visit many attractions in a few hours in absolute privacy and comfort. However, the sunset cruise offers one more highlight ꟷ the mesmerizing view of the sunset on board ꟷ a perfect end to a perfect cruise!

Finally, the Cruise to Ios Island departs daily at 10:00 or 15:00 from Vlychada port and lasts up to 5 hours. This cruise gives you the opportunity to combine discovering the aforementioned sights of Santorini and visiting another beautiful island, Ios Island, which owns wonderful golden sandy beaches with crystal clear waters. Keep in mind that as the cruises are private, you can add or remove stops according to your preferences, based on the weather and time limitations. All the cruises finish at Vlychada Marina and then you are safely transferred back to your hotel.

Whichever cruise you choose, you will surely embark on an unforgettable sailing experience and visit the most spectacular places with speed and comfort!

Wonderful experience!

I loved everything about the luxurious boat in which we took a ride through the volcano... It was a gift that my partner gave me and I had the best day of my life, everything was phenomenal: the food, the landscape, the excellent service from the staff even the beautiful boat. I’ve had the time of my life! Thanks to my lovely partner for this great amazing gift.
