Full description

Drop anchor on a luxury catamaran tour around the Santorini caldera while enjoying a delicious traditional meal with refreshing drinks from the open bar. Sail in the morning or at sunset on a cruise with a maximum of 20 guests. After being picked up from your hotel, unwind as you’re taken straight to the port. Take advantage of the snorkeling opportunity with a half-hour stop off the coast of Red Beach, plus 1.5 hours to snorkel in the sea caves of White Beach. Bathe in the lagoon’s hot springs and snorkel in clear waters.

If you choose the morning option, start your day off with a light breakfast onboard the catamaran. Sip on some coffee, tea, and orange juice, with toast and spreads.

Taste the flavors of Greece on board a menu of local Santorini delicacies for lunch or dinner, depending on the time of day you choose, with meat and vegetarian options. The menu includes barbecue skewers, dolmadakia (rice-stuffed vine leaves), Greek salad, and other local dishes. Sit back and unwind with a post-meal cocktail and music. Stay refreshed with unlimited drinks on board, including local white wine, Greek beer, and soft drinks. Continue past the two uninhabited volcano islands of Palia Kameni and Nea Kameni and take in other sights such as Aspronisi island and the Akrotiri lighthouse. Later the cruise sails in the caldera below the town of Fira and past the old port. If you chose the late afternoon option, stop below the village of Oia and be wowed by the striking sunset lights adorning the skies with vibrant, pastel colors. This is sure to be an unforgettable highlight to an already unforgettable cruise experience. At the end of your Santorini excursion, relax as your minibus driver conveniently drops you back at your hotel.

This was an amazing experience. Hassle-free transfer, we didn’t wait at the port, the boat was modern and the crew friendly and fun! We saw the caldera, the lighthouse and the volcanic rock formations were extraordinarily beautiful! The food was fresh and tasty, lots of drinks onboard and a fruit at the end. We swam at the hot springs and at two more fantastic places. We loved the music and the rest customers with whom we talked over lunch. In general the originals cruise was among the best things to do on Santorini!

From the start, the experience was pleasant with an easy email to schedule the proper pick up. As we stayed inside Oia, we had to locate a meeting place which was clearly explained to us. The organization was done well as it could be very confusing due to multiple tours starting from the same small port location. But, there were no issues here. Captain and staff were very friendly. We had three stops, food and drinks all the way through. The weather cooperates with low winds and the snorkeling locations were amazing. Drop off was organized as well. There are only a couple things I think could be improved: 1) the tour was advertised for 6+ hours. We were picked up at 9:50 am on the boat around 10:30.. We got off the boat at 3:00 and dropped off at our meeting location at close to 4. So, the advertisement makes it sound like you have 6+ hours on the boat when that was not the case. 2) the drop off location was on the complete other side of the island and it took a long time to get back.

Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to santorini. A few small complaints that could be improved. There was around 20 of us onboard, half stayed downstairs while the others went to the second deck. I noticed while moving to the front of boat that the captain was giving information about the areas we were visiting and santorini on the upper deck while those of us downstairs had nobody talking to us and giving us that same experience. Food was ok not great. There was ample time spent at multiple locations for swimming and enjoying the scenery/area. All in all I would do this again and recommend to others.
