About
Some of Santorini's best views are from the water, so catch an unforgettable Aegean sunset from the deck of a sailing ship on an afternoon cruise that's ideal for couples, families, and small groups. Carefully selected stops let you soak in volcanic hot springs, swim at Red Beach, snorkel off the boat, and admire the Akrotiri lighthouse. As the sun sinks toward the horizon, drop anchor and savor a freshly prepared dinner with Greek wine, served right on deck.

Breathtaking
Jun 2021
My family had the most amazing experience during our private sunset sail. Everything from start to finish was perfectly executed and well organized. Once we stepped aboard we didn't have a care in the world! We loved the spots we were taken to! The food was excellent, the wine and beer flowed freely. It was a very special opportunity for my me, husband and our adult children. If anyone asks ANY of us what our favorite time was in Greece we ALL answer this sailing cruise.
I cannot say enough about this experience. It is one I will NEVER, EVER forget!

Best activity we experienced in Santorini!
Oct 2020
The Sunset Cruise incl. Lunch was a spectacular activity that my wife and I enjoyed during our honeymoon on the Greek islands. From start to finish the organization was flawless and the staff on the yacht experienced and friendly the whole time. There really isn't anything to dislike - the nature, the views, the weather and the food were all amazing and we will cherish the memory of that wonderful day!

Great sail with experienced skipper.
Oct 2020
Excellent sailing experience with a very experienced skipper „Yiannis“. Super friendly and a real sailing tour - not running the engine the whole time. The boat is nice to sail and everyone was able to be at the controls. Highlight of our holiday in Santorini.

Private sunset tour ❤️❤️
We booked this as a birthday treat for my husband & was so glad we chose this one!!
The boat was beautiful plenty of room to sunbath or shade if wanted!

We saw the other group tours boarding their boats in bigger groups, so glad we paid a little extra for a private tour!!

The places we stopped off at were beautiful & captain Giannis & Isidoro were brilliant hosts!
They really knew their history of the beautiful island they really made the trip a memorable one for us!
The spread of food was out of this world!! Truly restaurant quality! Fresh prawns, muscles, pasta, rice, Greek salad, cheese potatoes to make but a few!! Really wasn’t expecting such a feast!
And to finish the tour we had the most amazing sunset pics to follow :)

This tour really made our holiday it was truly a spectacular trip thank you so much! Highly recommended!! Five stars from the Wilkinson’s

Thank you for making our holiday x

Amazing Cruise!
Oct 2019
We had such a fabulous time on the cruise! It was definitely a highlight of our vacation. We loved every minute of the tour! We had the opportunity to sail around the Caldera, stop to swim and snorkel as well as eat an amazing meal prepared on board. We felt extremely happy to have only two other people on the tour making it a private experience and even more romantic between the two of us as we watched the sunset.
Our captain Yiannis took great care of us, gave excellent information of the area and ensured we had a phenomenal time from start to finish. We definitely recommend this cruise. Thanks Yiannis and Inna for an awesome experience! We enjoyed meeting you!

Great hospitality, wonderful service, fun foods, and wonderful sail. Our captain and assistant welcomed us with drinks the moment we boarded and gave excellent information of area and and just made sure everyone’s needs were met. Comfortable boat, for the 10 of us passengers. This evening boat ride was one of the highlights of our trip to Greece !

Highlight of our vacation
Sep 2019
We arranged this tour at the last minute after our previous tour plans fell through and we considered it a massive trade up. They picked us up at our hotel, we boarded the catamaran in Amoudi Bay, sailed all around the caldera, stopping to swim at three points where the crew tossed bread in the water to attract fish and then anchored for dinner and sunset. Absolutely perfect.

Some thoughs:
- Evening on the water can be brisk, bring a change of clothes.
- The "hot springs" and not hot at all. Volcanic, yes, Hot - no.

30th Wedding Anniversary Sunset Sailing
Aug 2019
A personal very friendly and informative sailing tour. Fantastic experience from start to finish. We loved the snorkelling in the blue clear waters. Our hosts were very welcoming, informative and took a genuine care for us, we felt more like guests with friends than customers. They surprised us with a wonderful treat for our anniversary. The meal prepared for us was not only delicious but a huge well presented spread. We would recommend without hesitation this cruise.

A Wonderful Experience
Sep 2019
This sailing cruise was the highlight of our stay in Santorini. The semi-private small group experience was great. We were able to see some wonderful areas, swim in the water, and learned some interesting information about Santorini and the Caldera from the captain and crew. We highly recommend.
