This was a great way to see Santorini from the water, go snorkeling, and enjoy some sunshine away from the hustle and bustle of the island. We ended with a breathtaking view of the sunset from Ammouldi Bay. We got to meet and chat with the other people on the cruise with us which is always a great way to travel and meet new people. Thank you to the crew, who cooked a delicious meal for us and ensured the smoothest ride possible! Note that there are several other boats doing similar cruises beside you, so you are not secluded, but it makes for a cool view as the 'fleet' marches to the next destination!

we(blue tag) travelled with Mr.Jones crew. It was wonderful experience. Cab pick up & drop was on time(Surprised). Yacht crew were very helpful in guiding us. It was professional. When you are back Shoes were organised(not expected). Lunch was tasty and hospitality was very good. we were stopped in 3 places for snorkeling and to take pictures. I couldn't think about anything to be improved.

Wonderful experience. Chris and his partner were great hosts. We met lovely people in our small group. Dinner time was like a family meal, and the food was great too. Plenty of time to swim, take pictures, eat and drink. Oh, and the beautiful sunset was worth it all. Absolutely amazing experience.

Perfect, a unique experience to do in Santorini. the crew, the meal, the navigation, everything was on top... Thank you
