Choose the 3-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. Of course, you'll have the privilege to observe the magnificence of Therasia Island from a distance, an unspoiled small island that beckons with its pristine landscapes. In addition, you will sail by the famous Volcano of Santorini and then stop at the Hot Springs, where you will get to stop for a therapeutic dive. Next, you will 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! Going for one of the sunset choices allows you to admire the appealing sunset near Akrotiri!

5-hour Cruise

If you choose to spend 5 hours at the sea, you’ll enjoy a serene and idyllic journey, with additional pauses for diving and exploring the underwater world, assuring a delightful and tranquil excursion! The itinerary follows the same path as mentioned above on the 3-hour cruise, ensuring a smooth continuation of the mesmerizing voyage. As you extend your exploration for an additional two hours, the familiarity of the route allows for a deeper connection with the aesthetic magnificence and undiscovered jewels along the way. You will be afforded the chance to delve even further into the maritime delights, as well as make a stop at the island of Therasia for a full BBQ meal at a traditional restaurant there.

Traverse the crystalline waters, marvel at the iconic landmarks, and soak in the breathtaking vistas. The itinerary encompasses all the renowned sites as previously noted in the 3-hour and 5-hour trips, but also offers a comprehensive exploration of Santorini's coastal hidden wonders, like Kambia Beach, Mesa Pigadia Beach, and Armeni Bay. This Full-Day Cruise promises not only a visual feast but also a sensorial celebration, ensuring an unforgettable and fully immersive encounter with the enchanting beauty of the island!

By choosing the Daytime Private excursions, you will bask in the prospect of discovering the grace of Santorini under the daylight.
