My fiancé and I visited Oia for our honeymoon. We immediately booked a sunset cruise for our final night there.

The weather didn’t fully agree to give us the perfect santorini sunset, however the staff made our experience memorable. I completely forgot all of their names (blame the wonderful white wine on the catamaran)… but they were all amazing. They cooked an amazing barbecue dinner, had the drinks flowing, and made sure they brought out blankets and anything else we needed to make this night perfect.

I would recommend them 10 times out of 10!!

P.s. I believe one of the staff was Mixalis who I know said he was new. Also, the woman that prepared her own family shrimp recipe was the best and very informative!

This cruise is a must when visiting Santorini!! They are very nice and make you feel very relaxed and safe while sailing. The crew was cordial and respectful.

The bus driver, Demetris, was amazing!! He started our trip with laughs and confidence that we would have a great time. He was right. Homie knows how to get around in the van even backing up all the way down a hilly street… memorable times! He wasn’t scheduled to be our drop off driver after the cruise (our original driver was loaded down already with passengers) but he stepped in and gave us our ride back. Excellent service from this company!!! Highly recommend!!!

The crew of the Sunset Anafi- Helen, Stefav and Julio were very hospitable and friendly. Stefav was very gracious and kept up with our drink orders with a smile :) The lunch served was just as good or better than any restaurant. The site seeing was amazing- the crew did an excellent job taking the time to point out areas of interest. The sunset from the catamaran was spectacular. Would definitely recommend this cruise-it was our favorite excursion from our trip!

Overall the experience was OK. We were on the largest catamaran in the fleet with about 35-40 others. The whole thing was well organised, the food was good with a choice of pork or chicken skewers. The crew were young, enthusiastic and relaxed. We did 3 stops as planned and stayed out to see a great sunset.

The biggest downside and the only reason for 3 stars was that from quite early on in the trip, the crew were encouraged to pump out music like we were on a mobile disco. If you want a quiet trip, this is not the one. Even as we headed toward the sunset the tunes kept on coming despite many people on the boat clearly not enjoying it. I would have preferred the music to be turned down a notch or 3. Passengers had requested it to be turned down, which were ignored by the crew as they were clearly enjoying the enthusiasm of a select few (younger passengers).

We were having to shout at others just to have a conversation. There is a time and a place for the loud music and this is not what the majority of the passengers signed up for. This was a real let down and oversight by crew. I would look for a smaller boat next time, to avoid the “party boat” and have a more enjoyable experience all round.

We experienced the Sunset Tour Red Cruise with BBQ, drinks and transfer with about 50 other passengers. The crew was young, friendly and competent, the boat was comfortable and clean and the food freshly prepared and tasty. The sunset was beautiful and the scenery lovely. The reason for the three-star review was the blaring party music, which continued for most of the 5-hour tour and, at times, made it difficult for us to enjoy the trip. We are an active couple over 50, and enjoy music, dancing and fun, as well as nature and tranquility. The first couple of hours, we happily adapted to the party mode, but at some point would have appreciated a bit more serenity to take in the sounds of the sea, the wind and the natural beauty. At about hour-4 of the tour, my husband kindly asked one of the crew members to turn down the music a notch or two, and was met with the rather annoyed response that this was the “party boat”. This was not advertised as a “party boat”, but a sunset tour. After a little while, the crew member reluctantly turned the music down, possibly to the dismay of a portion of the guests, who had been enjoying the blasting music, dancing and singing along. Other guests, like us, were relieved.
At one of the stops, we encountered a couple of other Sunset Oia boats, which seemed to be much quieter. We suggest that the organizers specifically offer “party tours” as well as more serene sunset tours, in order to better meet the wishes of various types of guests. Alternatively, it would be helpful to clearly describe the tour as a party tour, if it is to be held that way, so that potential guests can decide if this is the right excursion for them.
In addition, the tour is advertised to start and end at the port of Ammoudi at Oia, but instead started and ended at Athinios port. As we had planned to spend the evening in Oia, this was an inconvenience which could have been avoided through more accurate information.

Trip is nothing like the itinerary, you don't get to swim in the hot springs, no mud bath, no snorkelling, no red or white beach. First stop was near the hot springs but we were told we couldn't go near it, then we went to a different beach with nothing going on. From there it was back to Oia. We were bored by 5pm and wanted to get off early. Atmosphere was trashy on the boat, not luxury at all. White wine was served out of an old water bottle in tiny plastic cups. Have contacted company for a refund as it just wasted a day on what is an otherwise amazing place. Couldn't recommend it less.

Wife and I had an amazing cruise of Santorini. Views and activities were great. Cristos and crew were excellent.

There are a lot of catamaran options. From viewing other catamarans during our cruise, Sunset Oia appears to provide the best experience. Our cruise had 15-18 people and was not crowded at all. Some other boats looked a little crowded. We chose the mid-priced option and I would highly recommend.

If you are in Santorini this is a must do! You get to spend half a day on a boat, see the island from the sea, discover new places effortlessly and, the cherry on top, see the sunet in Oia. I would argue that actually the best sunset spot in Oia is on a boat :) We loved the fact that the tour provided pickup and drop off at the hotel, as we were not staying in Oia. The transportation was on schedule and very professional. The organization at the Ammoudi Bay was not the best, at some point it was not very clear what was happening, but, in the end, we got on the boat. The boat was not crowded, maybe because of covid, and that was very nice. The staff - very friendly and professional. Loved the itinerary with all the hot spots of Santorini, but I would have loved the swim stops to be a bit more longer. The lunch was a great surprise, all the food was delicious! Except for the BBQ they also cooked for us shrimp saganaki and it was awesome! We also had tzatziki, potato salad, pasta salad, dolmades, feta cheese, pita bread, etc. The drink options were more than enough - water, beer, wine and juices. The sunset at the end was the most beautiful way to end the day. Please try this, I don't think you will regret it!

I booked a 5 hour private cruise on the power catamaran for just my wife and myself, Stathis was the captain and Catalina was our host, both were very polite and professional they showed us all the places we wanted to see and stopped the boat several times for us to swim and snorkel Catalina is very knowledgeable of Santorini and also a fantastic chef she prepared a wonderful vegetarian lunch accompanied by some lovely wine. Stathis even turned the boat round to try and find my wife’s new hat that blew off but was unsuccessful.
I can thoroughly recommend Sunsetoia for your cruise and the catamaran Emily.

This sunset cruise was lit! The crew was amazing ! That was the cleanest boat I’ve ever been on. They were constantly cleaning. The food was delicious! Our group of 5 had a blast. We were celebrating 2 birthdays on this cruise. I contacted them ahead of time to request cakes and they made the arrangements. They also had everyone sing hbd to them. The crew taught us a Greek dance that was so fun. Ended the cruise watching the sunset in Oía. Absolutely breathtaking and the best way to see the sunset! Good music, good people, and great vibes. Highly recommend!
