“Amazing way to see the islands!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

I surprised my boyfriend with one if their private cruises for his birthday and we had an unforgettable experience! We took the catamaran boat for a three hour tour during which we got taken to the hot springs between the volcanos, a bay in Thirasia where we could snorkel, and back to Ammoudi. The catamaran was staffed by a friendly captain who pointed out all the sights and a first mate who always made sure our drinks were full. The lunch on the boat was actually better than what we've had at the higher end restaurants we have visited so far. We saw a lot tour boats while we were out and they looked incredibly crowded, we were really glad we opted for the private sail.

Thanks for a great trip!

“Birthday fun in the sun! ☀️”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

The Sunset Oia Lagoon 500 was a birthday treat for my sister and I, and we had the best time ever! The crew put on a great evening for us with great music, dinner, birthday cake, snorkelling and of course a beautiful sunset! Lots of fun for our party of 8 and all the other guests on board. Would recommend this to anyone who loves the ocean, sun and fun! I would return to Greece in a heartbeat and this was definitely the highlight

“Worth every Euro! Fantastic excursion!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This excursion (from 10a-3p) was the best day of our three days in Santorini! My three kids loved hanging out on the catamaran and swimming off of the boat. Although I was a bit worried it was too long on the water, the time flew by. The BBQ lunch that was served was very good (grilled meats, pasta salad, grape leaves, Greek salad)! It was a pleasant day out on the sea and was fun to see the island from a different perspective. The crew spoke English very well and were very eager to please. Although it was pricey, it was worth only having a maximum of 16 people on the cruise. Thank you for such a great experience!!!

“A great day out, and a great way to see a beautiful island from the sea”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We gave a day of our holiday to see Santorini from the sea - and just loved it.

Very impressed with the condition of the boat; that you took your shoes off when you embarked; the care the crew went to maintain the boat; how diligent they were in their care for you and your safety.

The crew make the trip: they are safety aware; they want you to have fun; they want you to have great experience. Everything felt good about this trip.

To top it all you saw some great beaches; ate some lovely food freshly barbecued on the boat; drank endless supplies of free drink; and had the chance to swim and snorkel in lava pools and that beautiful Aegean sea.

We were at the older end of the age spectrum, amongst a lot of younger people - but that just worked so well for us to share in the fun atmosphere of the cruise.

Loved it when the sails went up, the motor tuned off and we sailed home.

A memorable experience, loved it, and recommend it.

“Worth every cent!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Best time ever. Crew was great, food was so much better than I thought, boat itself was perfect. We loved the places we stopped at and the crew was always accommodating.
Even better was the customer service. A iPhone was left in the boat and they returned it to us the next day. Simply the best.
