Wish to spend a relaxing day by the sea with your family or friends? Join your own Private Cruise on our Motor yacht, and let all your worries slip away! Our luxury motor yacht creates the perfect setting to rejuvenate and reconnect with family and friends, take amazing photos, and build scenic memories!

Our adventure begins after a free pick-up from your hotel and a graphic drive until you reach the departure port of the cruise. There are many cruises operating every day, the 5-hour Day Cruise, the 5-hour Sunset Cruise, and the 3-hour Day, Mid-Day, and Sunset Cruises. The Day Cruises depart from Vlychada port while the Sunset ones from Ammoudi port. Either one you choose, the moments you will spend on the boat will be magical!

A refreshing drink, along with the most tasteful small local bites, and a wide smile from our friendly crew will welcome you on board and then your unique cruising experience will start. One of the most beautiful locations that you will have the chance to visit, is below Oia village. Look up to the enormous cliffs and spot Oia with your camera, capture the wild volcanic scenery around, or take an enjoyable swim in the clear blue waters. The view will reward you!

5-hour Cruise

Choose the 5-hour option, and you will have the chance to sail along the Caldera cliffs, below the villages of Firostefani, Fira, and Imerovigli, as well as reach the small Old Port, which used to be the main port of the island and was very important for the trading business in the past. Not to mention the opportunity to see the famous Volcano of Santorini from a very close distance! Make a stop at the extraordinary Hot Springs near the Volcanic island, and treat yourself to an alternative mud bath that will fascinate you!

Next, your sailing adventure will lead you to the picturesque island of Therasia, a very beautiful location, in which you will have the chance to try a traditional BBQ meal at one of the taverns there. Choose your table near the sea, taste the best Greek dishes, and enjoy the incredible view which lies opposite!

3-hour Cruise

If your choice is to spend 3 hours at the sea, some marvelous spots are waiting to be explored as well, the famous Volcano of Santorini & the Hot Springs, where you will get to stop for a therapeutic dive, along with the small Therasia island afterward. You will not dock on Therasia island but you will get to swim in its blue waters and get served traditional Greek delicacies and local bites on board.

During both Private Cruise options (3-hour or 5-hour) you will also have the chance to swim in the blue waters of the beautiful Santorini beaches. Pass by the huge Indian Rock formations and the Venetian Lighthouse to reach the charming Red beach and White beach which are surrounded by a scenery that will take your breath away! Take a dive in the crystal clear waters or relax on the boat, sunbathe, and shoot the most beautiful photos of your holidays!

The famous Santorinian wine, as well as beers, soft drinks, and smoothies, will also be offered to you on board in both the 3-hour and 5-hour Cruises.

Last but not least, if you choose the Sunset Cruises, your day will have the perfect ending, as the view of the alluring sunset and the colors that the sky takes, will surely be something to remember! After the end of the cruise, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
