Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We will pick you up in a Mini Bus, at least one hour prior to the start of the cruise.

Make your way to the marina in time to catch your sailboat. Along with a small group of fellow travelers, go aboard and find a comfortable spot on board. 

The boat sets out for the Red Beach, located adjacent to the historical village of Akrotiri. Stop next at the White Beach, where you may go ashore for swimming and snorkeling. Sail past the Indian Rocks to the tip of the island, marked by the historic Venetian Lighthouse. Admire views of the neighboring Greek islands and the glittering Aegean Sea. 

Sail for the island of Apronisi, passing close by the caldera coast for views of the cliffside towns of Oia, Imerovigli, Firostefani, Old Port and Fira. Continue to the volcanic hot springs, where you can disembark to take a dip in the sulfurous waters. Cruise around the island of Palia Kameni, where you can dive off the boat to snorkel in one of the protected coves. 

Along the way, eat a buffet of barbecue accompanied by cold Greek salads, soft drinks, and wines made on the island. 

After the conclusion of the cruise, end up back at the marina. A driver is available to drop you anywhere on the island.

Terrible Experience
Ana_S
, Oct 2021
This sounded like a relaxing cruise, but turned out to be so trashy. The boat is small, which is fine, but they actually allow smoking on the boat. While they "only" allow it on the back of the boat, the boat is not large, so it really doesn't matter. Besides, am I supposed to go to the East facing front of the boat to avoid the smoke when the sun is setting in the West, and it's a sunset cruise...? Even the crew was smoking on board. The smell made me nauseous and I threw up in my mouth from the stench. The food wasn't great either. I put a note on my booking that I am vegetarian, and my only options for food were pasta or salad. Grilled vegetables would have been nice, since the food was supposed to be bbq. Overall, I was there to appreciate the beautiful scenery, and have a relaxing cruise, and it was an absolutely gross experience. Would not recommend to anyone with class.

Dear Ana, Thank you so much for the constructive feedback! You have booked a shared 5-hour cruise with BBQ Shrimps, Fish, Chicken & Drinks. Indeed, since the space is open, we do allow passengers to smoke in the back of the Catamaran. The middle & the front of the Catamaran is smoke-free. We are really sorry that you did not enjoy the food. The details of the meal are public info on the description of the cruise. We would highly recommend you book a private experience in the future, where you can select the food menu and the people that are joining you. With kind regards, Spiridakos Sailing Cruises

FANTASTIC TIME

This is a MUST BOOK! We had such an amazing time on this sunset cruise with a fantastic crew and captain with great company! The boat was a really good size and we had the perfect amount of people on the boat (not over crowded at all). We had such a lovely time and enjoyed the food on board. This was a 10 out of 10!

Soaking up the sun in Santorini

We had a blast on the Santana boat, captained by Marios. The crew headed by Joanna, with Endri and Klara were top notch making it fun, making sure that every need was met, and explaining the sights along the way. We swam, snorkeled, ate, drank, and soaked in the sun and sunset over the 5 hr trip. Highly recommended.

Nice crew, the trip has been really cool and the food was delicious. If u prefer swimming instead of watching the sunset, I recommend the morning trip.

With so many options for cruises from Santorini, it was tough to decide which one to take. So glad we chose this one. A small number of people on board and a very attentive crew made this well worth the time and cost. Don't delay, book with Viator and you'll be glad you did.
