  • 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. If you choose the morning cruise, you'll set off at approximately 10:00 AM from Ammoudi Bay into the island’s famous caldera before enjoying a therapeutic dunk in its thermal springs. 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.

    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.

    The tour around the island was insightful and covered a lot. It is a good way to see the island before going to explore yourself. The wine tasting was good and the guide was very informative and entertaining. Sunset at Oia was stunning, however it is a place that can become extremely busy, especially when people try to leave. Bear this in mind if needing to get back to the coach for the drive home.

  • 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!

It was the perfect amount of time of the boat to see the island, do some swimming, and lay out with a drink!

If you are looking for the true Santorini experience it is worth booking a tour with a local. Nick showed us all the popular spots of the island and took us to a few undiscovered spots. An absolute must do when coming to the island.

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.
