Full description
A minibus will pick you up at your hotel for the transfer to the port. Board the 'Lagoon', the luxurious catamaran that will take you on this cruise. The first stop on your 5-hour cruise is the Red Beach. Enjoy the amazing views, and swim and snorkel for a half hour. Next, the catamaran will sail to the White Beach, the second stop, where you’ll have 90 minutes to swim and snorkel in a quiet bay. The crew will throw bread into the sea and colorful fish will gather around you while you explore Santorini’s underwater life.

As you relax, the crew will prepare a barbecue meal on board. You’ll enjoy local delicacies, including grilled chicken, grilled pork, Greek salad, ntolmadakia (grape leaves stuffed with rice), pasta salad, all served on board. Choose from wine, soft drinks, and beer to accompany your meal.

The third stop for the Lagoon is at the famous Hot Springs. You’ll have 30 minutes to swim and bathe in the mineral waters of Santorini. Discover the warm springs that come from the bottom of the sea. Later the captain and crew will take you to the port and from there you will be transferred to your hotel.
