Our boat and crew were fantastic!! We were with Nikos, Yiannis, Dimitris, and Fotini. They made sure everyone was comfortable and had everything they needed. We made 3 stops for swimming, and the scenery was unbelievably beautiful. We had a delicious bbq lunch with authentic Greek foods. But the most miraculous event was that my adult daughter somehow accidentally removed the lanyard with her iPhone as she was getting back on the boat. It sank 30 feet to the bottom . After everyone said it was gone for sure (and my daughter was inconsolable) Yiannis put on some flippers and said he would try. Simply amazing - when he resurfaced, he had her phone!! Truly service above and beyond!!!

Loved it! We were picked up from our hotel & dropped off at the end, so we didn't have to worry about transport. The crew were so friendly & informative. They cooked us a delicious bbq lunch with some traditional Greek additions like tzatziki & dolmades. Our drinks were refilled all day & we were even given a shot of ouzo to enjoy as a group. We were given a few opportunities to jump off the boat and swim if we chose. Plenty of seating & shade on the boat. Arrived in Oia in time for a beautiful sunset & disembarked in Ammoudi Bay. If you're only doing one tour in Santorini, I highly recommend this one.

The cruise was really great with a couple of snorkelling spots along the way and we even saw some fishes! Our boat crew Savvina, Thanasis and Giorgos were really friendly and helpful too. Our mum got seasick and they provided medicine and kept checking up on her. Transport was also on time and super efficient. Overall we had a great time :)

It was fantastic and worth the money. The views are amazing, the drinks were good, the vibe was fun and the crew were doing their best to keep us happy. No pressure to leave tips but you'll want to because of how nice they are. The shuttle to and from was easy and made it stress free.

It’s a must do while in Santorini! Everything went smoothly, views were amazing, staff was excellent and food was great!
