After hotel pickup, board a deluxe catamaran at either Amoudi Bay (morning tour) or Vlychada Marina (afternoon tour). Unlike many cruises that only depart from Santorini’s southern Vlychada port, this one has the convenient option of sailing out of northern Amoudi as well. Cruise past the island’s most scenic bays, beaches, and coastal landmarks, including the Venetian Lighthouse and Indian Head Mountain.

Pass the neighboring islands of Aspronisi and Akrotiri, and sail inside Santorini’s dramatic sunken caldera, where you can get off the boat to soak in naturally heated volcanic hot springs. Stop at the distinctive red- and white-sand beaches to swim in the clear blue Aegean and snorkel with provided gear, if you like. Recharge with a Greek-style barbecue lunch featuring grilled chicken and pork skewers, grilled veggies, and white Greek wine.

Waste of 5 hours of my life

We did the morning red cruise and it was such a disappointment. I was really looking forward to it but it did not meet expectations at all. To start with, all the stops are falsely advertised. The hot springs weren't what most people would expect...More

This is the biggest business of its kind in Santorini. It is well run and organised. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to Parissa on the other side of the island. Other guests were picked up along the way so the transfer...More
