Full description

Cruise aboard a spacious and luxurious catamaran and experience views of Santorini’s landscape. Stop at the day at the famous Red Beach

Start with pickup and travel by minibus to the marina of Vlychada where the half-day cruise begins. Meet the crew and be welcomed on board with a glass of wine or a soft drink.

Set sail towards the island's colorful beaches while the guide on board will share insights into the history of Santorini and the geological events that created Santorini’s rugged landscape and its surrounding islands.

Your first stop of the day will be at the famous Red Beach. Enjoy time to swim, snorkel, and take pictures of its reddish hues and wild cliff formations. The first mezedes (finger food) are offered when you get back on board to continue your trip.

Admire stunning views of the sandy shores of White Beach, surrounded by bright limestone cliffs, followed by a short stop for pictures of the caves and impressive rock formations of the Indian Rocks, which can only be reached by boat.

Cruise past the 18th-century Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri, located on the southwestern tip of the island, and continue your sailing journey by entering the waters of Santorini’s caldera.

Head towards the renowned volcano for the second stop of the day at the sulfur-rich hot springs. Take a relaxing dip into its healing and detoxifying waters. Back on board, enjoy the view of Santorini, a postcard-perfect portrait of the villages on the cliff.

Set sail again towards the last stop for another swimming and snorkeling opportunity in the crystal-clear waters of Mesa Pigadia. Meanwhile, the crew will be setting the table for the delicious lunch for you to enjoy after your swim.

The menu features BBQ chicken, Neapolitan pasta, Greek Salad, Vegetarian meals such as Greek Ratatouille, a traditional Greek dessert, and an open white wine bar that also serves unlimited soft drinks, and water.

Then, sail back to Vlychada where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation in Santorini.

    It was great! The company called us one day before to confirm the pick up time and spot, and in the next day were very accurate with the place. The boat is beautiful, and the crew very nice, helpful and polite. The group was composed by 18 persons (+4 crew members), but the boat is so large it didn’t feel too crowded as it might sound. The views are astonishing, the water is crystal clear blue, but the hot springs aren’t “hot” at all. In the end, the lunch cooked by the crew was very delicious and fresh. If you have the opportunity do it!

    Well organised, friendly staff, excellent food with good stops. Wasn’t crowded, enough people to have nice conversations with though! The stops were really good but my only complaint is that I think we should be allowed to swim longer. We had to come back on the boat when lunch was served, and just sat around for an hour after finishing when we could have carried on swimming and just eaten after.. or be given a choice to go back in.
