  • Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    1. Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    Climb aboard the 74-foot Ocean Voyager or the 80-foot Tahiti catamaran for a 5-hour sunset cruise around Santorini in the Aegean Sea. Set off on a journey of discovery that will first take you to the hot springs, then the Red Beach and finally the White Beach. You will start at the Ammoudi Port of Oia or at your hotel, if you upgrade to include a hotel pickup and drop-off service, and set sail for beautiful Red Beach to swim and snorkel for 30 minutes. Continue to a secluded White Beach, only accessible from the sea, for more swimming and snorkeling in the shadow of the towering white cliffs. Onboard the catamaran, savor a barbecue supper of salads and grilled meat and veggie options. Continue sailing inside the crescent-shaped Caldera, close to the volcano, and enjoy a final dip in the Hot Springs, before sailing back to Oia as the day ends with a spectacular sunset.

    My husband and I had so much fun on this catamaran trip. The views were gorgeous and we stopped twice to get in the water which was so much fun. They barbecued on the boat so we had a delicious, fresh meal. The sunset was obviously the highlight, and it was so special to see it from the water. They also brought us a special cocktail while we watched the sunset. It was also a huge bonus that they pick you up and drop you off as well since transportation to the port can be kind of tricky. Highly recommend!!

    This was truly a fantastic day sailing the Caldera. The pickup was on time and check-in was quick. The boat was clean and comfortable and the guides were extremely helpful as well as very knowledgeable. It was the perfect amount of time of the boat to see the island, do some swimming, and lay out with a drink!

Absolutely incredible experience. You can’t beat the view of Santorini from the air. The process was extremely easy with our driver picking us up and driving us to the helicopter with no issues. The pilot was Roman who was extremely nice, helpful and professional. Took us on a beautiful flight and was extremely informative about the history and facts regarding the island. The views he was able to show us in the helicopter were incredible. I would recommend this activity to anyone traveling to Santorini.

Amazing experience! Food was delicious and crew was wonderful. This was the highlight of our whole time in Santorini. My only complaint is the size of the group was a little large for the size of the boat during covid times. We had to sit side by side, squeezed together to accommodate the 20 people.

We had a great, almost private tour as there were only four of us. Many thanks to Christina and Nikos, you did a great job. Since we were only in Santorini for 2 days, the tour was perfect

It was an amazing tour! Food was great guides were awesome and views spectacular. Hot springs were not hot that’s the only negative.

Wonderful! The crew was awesome and lunch was incredible! Great swimming and views as well.
