Experience the magic of Santorini from the sea with a 5-hour boat tour aboard a luxurious catamaran with only 20 guests. Discover the places that enchant millions of visitors every year and that make Santorini the undisputed star of the Aegean islands: the White Beach, the Red Beach and the famous Hot Springs. Swim in the crystal-clear waters and places accessible only by boat and enjoy a great lunch of typical Greek delicacies offered on board.

Tour program of the Santorini boat trip:

  • Pick-up from you hotel in Santorini and transfer to Ammoudi bay, where you will board the Lagoon 520, a luxurious double-decker catamaran with expert captain and crew.
  • The cruise will take you through the Caldera, one of the spectacles of the Mediterranean Sea, with the midnight blue waters, the sheer lava cliffs layered in multi colored rock and that picture perfect sight of sparklingly white cubic houses and azure-domed churches.
  • The first stop will be at Hot Springs, close to the volcano, on the northeast side of Palea Kameni, famous for the warm springs that come from the bottom of the sea. Here you will have approximately 30 minutes to swim and take advantage of this unique natural spa.
  • After a healing mud bath we will sail towards Aspronisi; the ancient settlement of Akrotiri with the old Venetian Lighthouse, and, once arrived at the southern tip of the island you will admire the Indian Rock, a distinctive rock formation that recalls the profile of an Indian.
  • The second stop will be at the shimmering White Beach, a place only accessible by boat with the crystal clear blue waters and the rich underwater environment and reefs. Here, while you swim and snorkel, the crew will prepare for you a delicious lunch featuring traditional dishes and Greek appetizers, accompanied with wine, beer and soft drinks.
  • The last stop will be at the famous Red Beach, one of the most dramatic and most beautiful beaches in Santorini; and the reason for its popularity is its color. You only need to glance at the precipitous red cliffs and russet shingle, both products of volcanic activity, to understand how the Red Beach got its name. Here you will have 30 minutes to swim and snorkel.
  • The tour will end in Vlychada port and from there the driver will drop you off at your hotel.
*Hot Springs: It is good to know that catamarans/yachts stop 50m away from the warm sulfuric water of the Hot Springs bay. The temperature in the Hot Springs area is up to 4°C warmer than the open water. Dark color swimwear is recommended.
**All yachts and boats in Greece cannot moor directly on the beach. We have selected the best spots for swimming and snorkeling, the closest possible to the beach.

The price includes: Hotel pick-up and drop-off – English speaking crew – Lunch with local dishes – Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages – Equipment for snorkeling – Towels – WiFi on board.

Don’t forget: Valid ID or passport – Sunscreen – Sun hat – Sunglasses – Camera.

Maximum: 20 people on board.

To know more about your boat trip...

Santorini is an extraordinary island overlooking the blue Aegean Sea and famous for its white villages, exceptional sunsets and volcanic bays. If you are wondering what are the best beaches to swim on in Santorini, here is a selection of must-see beaches to visit on your boat tour in Santorini.
Close to the village of Oia lies the small and charming beach of Ammoudi, from where the excursion starts. It has a rocky coast and the seabed offers a beautiful view. If you stay near Oia, your trip to the most beautiful bays of Santorini awaits you.
Among the most famous beaches of Santorini is Red Beach: a beach whose sand is made of volcanic lava that characterises its color. The bay is undoubtedly spectacular with the red coast diving into the emerald sea. Snorkeling here is ideal thanks to its magnificent backdrop.
From the red of Red Beach to the white of White Beach is a moment, indeed, a few minutes away. White Beach, as the name says, is a white treasure chest between the shores of Santorini. The walls here are pure and white and the sand, with a dark base, is mixed with large white pebbles that contribute to the typical beauty of this place.
The beach of Mesa Pigadia is still among the least known and therefore among the wildest on the island. Mesa Pigadia is located in the southernmost tip of Santorini, where the sea is particularly clear and the sand is covered by large dark pebbles. Like all the wildest beaches, Mesa Pigadia is not easily accessible except by sea with a boat tour in Santorini. The beach is located a short distance from the village of Akrotiri and Indian Rock, the mountain south of Santorini that resembles the profile of an Indian.
Vlychada is a particularly calm beach south of the island of Santorini, away from the tourist chaos and enjoying an almost lunar charm. The sand, mixed with pumice stones, has a grey colour that meets the blue of the sea and the rocky walls of the coast are shaped by the wind to create original grooves and very suggestive recesses.


Yes, there will be stops to swim and snorkel.

      Great tour, wonderful day!

      Extremely competent guide, excellent service on board. A really well-organized tour!

      5 stars and well deserved

      A good skipper can make or break your holiday and mine definitely made ours! Wonderful sea and gorgeous views from the boat. My favourite stop was at the White Beach: the reef was breathtaking. They even prepared a delicious lunch for us … cannot wait to do another tour soon.

      Great experience

      Beautiful experience. A sea and and lovely scenery, wonderful company. Will never forget the beauty of the red Beach!


      A splendid boat. Beautiful, equipped and with wide spaces fro everyone. This tour was really exciting and exceeded my expectations! Recommended

      What a tour!

      The Greek Islands are magnificient and a catamaran ride is just what you need! Careful and attentive staff especially in this particular moment of Covid fear! I can only speak well.


      Amazing!!!! Hard to put in words how incredible it was to do a boat tour on a catamaran sailing along the Santorini coast...The staff took amazing care of us and I had one of the most incredible experiences of my life.

      Fantastic day on board

      Such a great experience while in Santorini. The boat felt spacious and comfortable and really clean. Safety measure for Covid respected in all aspects. We made several swim stops. The crew was great at pointing out all the interesting spots and even made a lovely lunch for us. I enjoyed every minute and would recommended it to everyone.


      This catamaran cruise was excellent, great and warm staff. We visited several beaches and my best location was the Hot Springs. Snorkeling in these waters was the greatest experience of my life and wish to come back soon and do another tour.


      My family and I chose this boat tour and we are so happy we did! We stopped several times to swim and snorkel and my favourite place was the White Beach: such a beautiful crystal clear water...We had enough time to swim, eat and relax. Very well done.


      Everyone took great care of us, from the driver to the staff on board. We anchored in a few wonderful places to swim and snorkel. Be aware that when you stop to swim in the Hot Springs do not wear a light coloured swim suit or it will discolour (few people on board had this problem!). At some point they served us a delicious lunch as well. It was an incredible tour!


      I was surprised at how well organized this catamaran cruise was. Truly friendly staff and very well prepared. Enjoyed every single minute of this tour. Would highly recommend!


      It was incredible, worth every penny! I had so much fun and made friends with lots of interesting people. Staff was great and very scrupulous to every single need of each passenger. 5 stars.


      One of my favourite tours ever! It was incredibly beautiful on board, very clean (very important for Covid) and enough space for everyone to sit and enjoy the landscape from the sea. Several stops to swim and snorkel. Great lunch, delicious food. Recommended

      Absolutely loved it!

      Catamaran was really nice and very comfy for us to relax and tan. We took so many pictures and had lots of fun together with other passengers who seemed really nice. Staff awesome and smily all the time. Great swim stops, wonderful views and what a sea!!!!

      5 stars

      We decided to make a boat tour while in Santorini and choose this 5 hour tour on a catamaran. I cannot even explain you how beautiful it has been! I saw awesome places and swam in such clear waters. The staff made several stops and we had time to take pictures, swim, snorkel and relax as well. Best day in a long time!
