Itinerary
After hotel pickup and a short transfer to the port of Amoudi or Athinios, board your catamaran and set sail along Santorini’s west coast. Marvel at the dramatic landscapes as you cruise beneath the caldera cliffs and look out across the ancient volcano. Make a stop at the hot springs, where you can bathe in the warm waters or opt to take a mineral-rich mud bath.

Back on the boat, glide around the ‘White Island’ of Aspronisi and listen as your guide points out landmarks including the Akrotiri lighthouse and Indian Face rock. Drop anchor at the White Beach, where you can dive in to swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea.

After working up an appetite, dig into an included barbecue lunch on-board and sip Greek wine from the open bar. Make a final stop for more snorkeling at the Red Beach, then enjoy views of Thirassia Island on the way back to the port. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Beautiful views, good food but a bit rushed

Beautiful views of the caldera and a great BBQ. The boat was clean and well maintained but there were a lot of 'rules' and the swimming stops felt a bit rushed and regulated. Also a bit expensive for the overall experience. However a nice way...More

Nice Trip, bad organization

The trip was nice, delivered what is expected. However, we arrived and nor have been waiting in the burning sun for 15mins. The driver hasn't arrived and all what the crew are saying is just keep there and he will come. The worst is that...More

Would have liked more tour-guiding as we were cruising

It was expensive but a good way to see "everything" that we wanted. I enjoyed the swim and snorkel. The boat deck was nice and sunny, but inside the splash screens you can't really see much and we only got brief introductions at the major...More

too many people on the catamaran

In my opinion there was too many people on the catamaran and this detracted from the experience. The food was good and swims were enjoyable. Snorkel equipment was faulty and only available on the last swim, not too sure why ? Thought it was a...More
