Speed and comfort are combined in this Private Speedboat Cruise around the most magnificent parts of Santorini Island! Bring your loved ones and embark on a cruising experience that will fascinate you!

A private cruise is the best way to meet all the famous places of Santorini, feel the freedom that the sea offers, and enjoy all the fun with your family or friends.

Starting your tour from Vlychada port, in the south part of the island, get ready for a speed experience that will give you the thrill you are seeking in your summer holidays. You can choose among the 3-hour (Day or Sunset Cruises), the 5-hour (Day or Sunset Cruises), and the 8-hour Full-Day Cruise.

Embark on a 3-hour cruise and after departing from Vlychada port, get ready to approach the beautiful Eros beach and the extraordinary Red beach. Marvel at its wild beauty with the high red cliffs surrounding it, and the wide shore with the red and black colorations, and get ready for a nice refreshing swim and a snorkeling adventure, with the equipment provided on the boat, or just stay on the boat and relax while taking nice photos of the beautiful landscape around. Next, as you follow the coastline, you will get to see the astounding White beach, a small cove with the white color being the dominant color, and with crystal clear waters urging you for a dive. 

As the cruise continues, get ready to capture more of the volcanic beauty of the island by passing by Mesa Pigadia beach, the Indian Rock formations, and the Venetian Lighthouse, which stands still at the top of the Caldera cliffs. If the weather conditions are supportive, the 3-hour tour will also take you to the famous Volcano of Santorini and the unique Hot Springs around it. There, you will have the chance to enjoy a unique mud bath in the waters of the famous Hot Springs, which are full of sulfur. It’s an experience that will surely fascinate you! During the 3-hour tour, you will be served snacks, along with free local wine, beers, and soft drinks.

Choose the 5-hour cruise if you wish to spend more time touring around the island, and get to visit all the above-mentioned beautiful parts, including the impressive Volcano. If the weather is nice, feel free to adjust your itinerary with your captain and reach the north part of Santorini and below the picturesque village of Oia. During the 5-hour cruise, you'll be treated to a snack menu featuring vegan and vegetarian options, as well as complimentary local wine, beers, and beverages. Additionally, if you wish to have lunch or dinner, it can be arranged for an extra charge at a local tavern in Therasia.

The highlight of the tour is the underwater camera provision, which will allow you to take the most amazing photos, as well as the drone coverage if the weather conditions are supportive. Get ready to have the most special moments of your cruise captured in a video, which will be sent to you for free!

This amazing experience also provides a Full-Day option, which promises the best day at the sea! Not only you will see all these wonderful places of Santorini, but you will also have the chance to explore private bays, as you sail to the north side of the island until you reach Therasia and enjoy a flavorsome lunch at one of the graphic taverns there (meal is included in the price).

Last but not least, all the above-mentioned tours offer Sunset options, which is the best experience on the island. You will witness the stunning Santorini sunset on board, see the magic colors that the sun is taking, as it is diving into the sea, and get a feeling of festivity before you end the tour at Vlychada port.

Reach high adventure levels on this Private Speedboat Cruise and get ready to have the time of your life!

Highlight of our trip!

We were picked up in Oia by a private car. The driver was punctual and friendly. George was the best captain! He was very knowledgable and took us to all of the notable spots. We were able to swim in several places and snorkel as well. He will work with you to do what you want. Highly recommended!

Unbelievable Experience

Not only were we upgraded to a cameraman for our 7 passengers we had a home made dinner on the boat. The dinner was by far one of the best we have had on the island. A private boat with a husband and wife team by far exceeded our expectations. Could not ask for more

Amazing Experience

George was a fabulous boat captain. So kind and good with the kids. Told us the history of Santorini. Took us to all of the fun spots. Snorkeling, swimming, beers on the boat, beach hopping. Couldnt have been happier. When we were finished they had us a driver who was just as great as George. He drove us to his favorite local spot for dinner and asked the maitre'd to take good care of us.
