If you’re on the fence about this, let me push you off !! This boat tour was 1000 percent worth every penny. Swimming in the Aegean Sea, and in the Volcanic hot springs (not really hot, but warm in some places!), seeing the cliffs of the Red Beach and White beach (which is really the best vantage point rather than from the beach itself), and the fantastic sunset view at the end! The crew were very friendly and efficient, and the food was fantastic (maybe the best BBQed pork ever!). We took the comfort package, and this was awesome value. Still had unlimited wine and other non-alcoholic drinks, and had to bring our own towel, which was no big deal at all. This is absolutely a must do on your vacation! Don’t miss out on this amazing way to see Santorini!!

Our catamaran tour was everything we'd hoped it would be. With a small group of travelers (9 of us in total) we had plenty of room to mingle if we desired or find a spot to keep to ourselves on the boat. Our boat was in excellent condition, the crew were very kind & attentive, all our wants & needs were met. The lunch was divine & HUGE. We are thrilled that we booked this & highly recommend it to any other Santorini visitors.

This was really fun and well worth the money. It was a great value as they took us to several different beautiful beaches around Santorini island that we may not have otherwise seen. They also made us a delicious lunch and served wine and beer. They also provided hotel shuttle service to get to the boat.

Excellent viwes on red and white beach from the sea, great experience bathing in vulcano hot springs. The meal on the boat was very delicious.

Must do activity when you’re in Santorini. A day well spent.
