  • Santorini: Small Group Romantic Catamaran Cruise

    1. Santorini: Small Group Romantic Catamaran Cruise

    Take a relaxing catamaran cruise during the day for spectacular views or during the evening for a romantic atmosphere.

Once you feel thoroughly relaxed, return to the boat and continue towards Aspronisi Island, taking in views of Indian Rock and the Venetian Lighthouse as you go. The tour continues with a stop at Mesa Pigadia Beach, which serves as a scenic backdrop for a Greek barbecue lunch. After your meal, admire the vermilion sands of the Red Beach and go for a swim in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea before ending your cruise at Marina of Vlychada. The evening cruise sets off from Vlychada Marina at approximately 3:00 PM. Red Beach is the first port of call, where you’ll have time for an af...

    Great day out. Food was lovely. Little slow to get going waiting on late transfers but boat was great and the staff lovely. Perfect amount of people on the boat they don't overcrowd it at all. Springs same temperature as the other stops so don't expect it to be hot. Sunset was amazing. We would recommend the trip.

  • Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    2. 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!

    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.

  • Santorini: Volcanic Sunset Cruise

    7. Santorini: Volcanic Sunset Cruise

    Sail from Athinios Port on a local caique, a boat traditionally made by master craftsmen in wood. Stop at the volcano and the hot springs, if you like, then head to a beautiful spot for magnificent views of the sun setting over the horizon. With nothing blocking the magical view you will have a lasting memory of your holiday in Santorini and one of the most famous sunsets in the world. It is a breathtaking experience to watch the hue of colors spreading across the width of the sky and reflecting upon the unique caldera of the island. Cherish the moments of complete relaxation and serenity with a glass of local white wine on board. There will be plenty of opportunities to take enviable photographs.

    This trip was amazing included swimming in the hot springs, a visit to Therasia and watching the sun set over the ocean. The guide was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Great experience all the way around.

  • Santorini: Scuba Dive Experience

    8. Santorini: Scuba Dive Experience

    Start from the beautiful Bay of Ammoudi, where the boats are moored. A professional team will assist you with finding the right sized diving suit and all necessary equipment. Depending on the weather and level of experience of the group, visit a selection of the best sites around Caldera and Volcanic islands.  Take a boat ride to two different diving locations. In the underwater world of Santorini, dive in clear blue water amongst reefs, lava formations, wrecks, and cliffs. Experience wall diving and cave diving in sites around the islands. At the end of the activity, return back to the Amoudi bay to transfer back to the drop off location.

    I actually enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. You get such adequate time under the water and the guides are patient and helpful. Only minor thing I would say is that I payed to rent the underwater camera but they only had one memory card. We agreed for one of the guys to take it home and send it to us (he did thankfully), but would have been nice to have my own card. This was one of the highlights of my week long trip in Santorini. Such an amazing experience and I do recommend it!

  • Santorini Sunset Fishing Trip with Dinner and Drinks

    10. Santorini Sunset Fishing Trip with Dinner and Drinks

    Take part in an amazing fishing trip off the coast of Santorini at sunset. Set sail from Vlychada harbor, and then watch or join in as the crew pulls in the shrimp nets they laid out the night before. Cruise past beautiful Red Beach, White Beach and Black Beach, and get stunning views of the volcanic landscapes, such as Indian Rock. Drop anchor at one of these spectacular settings to cool down with a refreshing swim in the Aegean Sea. Snorkel with the marine life, or top up your tan at the end of the day. Listen to traditional music, and get some more time to fish using rods, lines and bait provided by the crew. Help clean and cook the fish if you wish, and then enjoy a delicious dinner and unlimited local drinks. Sail back across the open sea and watch a magical sunset out on the water.

    This was a fun opportunity for us to try our hand at fishing with a local family fishing business. Captain Anthi and the team did a wonderful job of explaining the different fish we would likely encounter and teaching us different ways for us to catch them based on the type - everyone on the boat eventually caught something. The meal that was prepared was great and we had an opportunity to do a bit of snorkeling in the middle of fishing. Captain Anthi is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and did a great job engaging folks across multiple languages and nationalities.

Great opportunity to see various vineyards. Host was knowledgeable and the wines were tasty. There is various meats, cheese and breads to pair with the wines so don’t eat a huge lunch right before as we did! Good brief history of the wines and the right level of information and letting the guests speak amongst each other.

Absolutely no regrets from booking this tour! Maria was our guide and she was amazing! Her family history to Thira/Santorini made the experience more personable and better than we expected. The final winery was timed perfectly with the sunset, and they provided a blanket to my wife when it started to get cold afterwards.

Andrew was the absolute best!! And we have done a ton of wine tours in Napa. He was So knowledgeable, accommodating and funny. Would 100% recommend! Loved all the history he provided too.

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

Excellent booked thru get you guide excellent app deals with the best retailers!
