Private Speedboat Cruise in Santorini with Snacks & Drinks

A private tour around the gifted island of Santorini and nearby islands is the perfect way to see the main attractions and explore hidden gems, but the “Heaven Can Wait” Speedboat Sunseeker 37 takes the cruise to a whole new level. Such a cruise is ideal for thrill-seekers as the speed and the proximity to the sea gives an exciting sensation. There are 3 private cruise options to choose from and they all offer free pick up and drop off service, snorkeling equipment, drinks and snacks. The menu includes a variety of cheese and cured meat products, Greek salad, fresh fruit and unlimited water, sparkling water, beer and white wine. Passengers are advised to bring their hat, a dark colored swimming costume for the sulfur springs of the volcano, sun lotion, a light jacket and a camera.

The Day Private Cruise departs daily at 10:00 from Amoudi Bay and lasts up to 3 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, White Beach and 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.

Afterwards you head to the residual volcanic islets of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni where, besides gazing at a lunar landscape, you will dive in the sulfur springs of the volcano, known for their therapeutic waters. Other coastal wonders of Santorini you will admire on the way are the quaint old port of Fira, the tiny chapel of Seven Holy Youths and the picturesque bays of Armeni and Ammoudi in Oia. You will also visit the island of Therasia, see its port, Riva, and an impressive cave called Tripiti Spot and the tiny island of Aspronisi before returning to Amoudi Bay.

The Sunset Private Cruise departs daily at 17:00 and has the same starting point, duration and suggested itinerary with the daytime cruise. They are both ideal for those who wish to visit many attractions in a few hours in absolute privacy and comfort. Of course the sunset cruise offers one more highlight ꟷ the mesmerizing sunset time 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 Amoudi Bay 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 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. Whichever cruise you choose, you are sure to embark on an unforgettable sailing experience and visit the most spectacular places at speed and comfort.
