Overview

Experience Santorini’s beauty, hot springs and beaches on a 5-hour catamaran cruise. Select a daytime or sunset cruise, and sail around the island and caldera (flooded volcanic crater) on a deluxe catamaran. Stop to bathe in the Nea Kameni springs; swim, snorkel or unwind at beaches; and enjoy unlimited Santorini wine and Greek beer, plus a Greek meal prepared on board. On the evening cruise, be treated to awe-inspiring sunset views. A cruise is essential when you visit Santorini, and with numbers limited to 16, this offers a small-group experience.
  • 5-hour Santorini caldera cruise including a full Greek meal prepared on board, plus unlimited wine and Greek beer
  • Soak up the sun and sights as you cruise around Santorini on a luxury, brand new catamaran
  • Dip into the relaxing hot springs by Nea Kameni volcano
  • Visit the White Beach and Red Beach for a spot of swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing
  • See the caldera under the glow of a legendary Santorini sunset, if option selected
  • Choose from a daytime or sunset cruise, with numbers limited to 16 to ensure a more intimate experience
Select a morning or sunset cruise when you book. Then, on the day, depart your Santorini hotel by air-conditioned minivan and travel to the jetty for your 5-hour cruise.

Meet your professional skipper and crew, and find a comfortable spot on the deluxe modern catamaran. Then, sit back and admire Santorini’s caldera and sugar-cube clifftop houses as your vessel pulls away from dock. Relax and enjoy the sea breezes, and take snaps of the views as your catamaran cuts through the waves of the Aegean Sea. As you sail, enjoy the unlimited Santorini wine, Greek beers or sodas available from the onboard bar.

After a short sail across the south part of the island, stop at the Red Beach. Pause here and enjoy time to swim, snorkel or simply sunbathe on the decks.Then, drop anchor at the hot springs beside Nea Kameni, Santorini’s ancient volcano. Step ashore and submerge yourself in the warm pools, whose waters are thought to have medicinal powers that help alleviate skin and bone conditions.

Back aboard, cruise along the coast to Santorini’s southern beaches. Head for the White Beach, and, if you wish, leave the boat to swim in the crystal waters. If you fancy checking out the undersea life, use the supplied snorkeling equipment and set off in search of colorful fish and other underwater sights.

Afterward, return to deck for a delicious lunch or dinner, depending on the cruise time you’ve chosen. Dig into an enticing selection of pork and grilled chicken, Greek salad, pasta salad, fresh bread and fruit.

Roughly 30 minutes later, start out on your return journey. If you’ve chosen the sunset cruise, soak up the sight of one of Santorini’s magical sunsets. Snap pictures or just enjoy the moment as the sun sinks below the horizon in a blaze of orange, gold and pink.

Lastly, dock back at the jetty and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: the stop at the Red and/or White Beach may be changed to a different beach, depending on your experienced catamaran skipper’s judgement of weather and sea conditions on the day of your cruise. In every swimming stop opportunity, the catamaran boat anchors off the beaches in deep waters as the vessel is not able to dock on the actual beaches in shallow waters.

The crew was great crew of 4, food delicious the fried fish was the tastiest, and they were generous with supplying drinks although nobody on the same tour over-indulged. Many of us enjoyed swimming in the ocean by the red beach and in between the volcanic islands. Beautiful scenery throughout and overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We chose the Sunset tour and were told that equally many people choose the morning tour. It is probably the most popular tours on Santorini as there were at least 16-17 other boats/catamarans with the same itinerary as us and we went during low season. We met many wonderful and fun people on this cruise which made it a lot more fun. It did get cold on the way back so take a hoodie or extra towel with you. This is a must-do when in Santorini.

Great way to see Santorini from the sea and of course the beautiful sunset. Driver picking us up from the hotel was early and shared many facts about Santorini while we drove to the port. The boat "Bonita" was beautiful and the crew was excellent. Delicious food. Soda was limited to sprite only (just FYI). We had a great time!Couple things to note - the listing explicitly states that the trip is limited to 16 persons, there were 18 people during our cruise. Was this that big of a deal? Not really, there was plenty of space. However, I think it should be noted that the listing made a point of stating this and then there were 2 people over the limit that the company set for themselves. Secondly, towels are provided during the cruise - the crew don't really stress to look after your own towel and be an adult about it. After one of the swimming stops, people took my and my husband's towels and I was scolded by the crew for not having a towel and getting the catamaran wet. Not cool.

We were on a boat captained by Leo. The whole crew (Anastais,Labros, Andreas etc) was amazing. They were informative and accommodating. The food was so good and I wish I could hire them to be my personal chefs. We cruised the island and swam in the Aegean. We are planning a return trip and will do the catamaran tour again. Thank you for a wonderful time and great memories!

This was a highlight of our trip. Awesome cruise with great crew. The sights are unbelievable, the catamaran was spotless and very well maintained and the crew was friendly, informative and entertaining. Lunch was also very good, cooked right on the boat and very fresh. Wonderful experience that I highly recommend.

We were a little disappointed with the size of the catamaran, it felt small for the amount of people, other than that we had a great time. The staff was very friendly and they were always offering drinks and making sure that everyone was ok. The food was good and the sunset espectacular.

We had fun in this cruise. The boat crews were attentive, engaging and made sure of everyone's safety. The food is good, but could be improved. Our driver, Jimmy, on the way to the port was awesome. He showed us around some places in Santorini as we had extra time before the boat sails.

Our experience was truly memorable. pick up was punctual and comfortable in AC van. The boat crews were friendly and accommodating. Dinner was excellent considering that there is limited Kitchen on the Catamaran. Only wish we have is that it would have been great if the all day experience was available. we were picked up at 2:45 and we were back on the shore around 9 PM. We wish there was more time to enjoy the beach and swimming....But overall We felt that it was definitely worth the money.

Beautiful sunset on the water! We sailed around Santorini on a boat called the Bonita. The captain and crew were very welcoming. Thodoris, one of the crew members, was great! He told us about the history of the island and about the sights we were seeing. He also took all the pictures we wanted! We got to swim and snorkel. And, the food was excellent! Absolutely worth it! Would definitely recommend!
