Crystal clear Aegean sea water, nice weather, and friendly crew members. The only thing we didn’t like was the check-in process. It was chaotic and we waited for more than half an hour without being told the next step before we could board the boat. Once on the boat, smooth sailing.

This was a great tour. Free transfer from our hotel to the port and well organized once we arrived. The catamaran was spacious and the crew was the best, had great music playing and kept the party going. Food and drink were both excellent. Highly recommend.

10/10 would do the tour again! The food, music, and swimming were spot on. There were many different age groups, but the crew did an amazing job of bringing everyone together for a really fun experience :)

This was awesome! We started our Santorini trip with this cruise and we had a blast meeting new people, visiting the beaches, eating the greek food and all the wine!!

Great activity! Magnificent landscapes! A great welcome with the support staff just incredible!
