  • Depart from Vlychada Marina, the southern side of the island
  • Sail to the Red and White Beaches, go through the Indian Rocks and Venetian Lighthouse
  • View the caldera of Santorini and the sunset (if it is the evening sailing cruise)
  • Explore the volcano of Santorini and its small nearby islands (Palia and Nea Kammeni islands) and swim in the sulfurous hot springs
Full description
Set sail from the southern port of Vlihada and follow the coastline until you reach the Red Beach in Akrotiri, one of the most beautiful beaches of the island with a distinct red color caused by the mineral rich and iron soil. Then, head to the White Rocky Beach, which you can only access by boat. A stop for swimming and snorkeling is highly recommended since it is difficult to resist the crystal clear blue waters with the rich underwater environment and reefs.  Leaving the White Beach and heading to the Venetian lighthouse, sail below the Indian rocks through caves and rock formations, characteristic of the Aegean landscape. After sailing below the lighthouse, the yacht will turn and enter the caldera of Santorini. There, you will see everything opening in front of your eyes. The picturesque white houses hang from the cliffs like grapes off the cliff formations and the volcanic islands of Palea and Nea Kammeni. There, you will have the chance to sail below the traditional villages of Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and the overwhelming rock formations consisting of basalt and pumice. From there, head to the crater of the volcano and sail around it to have a full view of it and stop at the thermal springs for swimming at the sulfurous waters, that offer a natural spa. Palia Kammeni, an inhabitant volcanic island next to the volcano, offers unique private bays and beaches, ideal for swimming and snorkeling, and perfect to enjoy your own privacy away from crowded locations. As you enjoy yourself, the attentive crew will prepare on-board a delicious fresh meal (lunch or dinner) consisting of a full menu with BBQ chicken fillets, fish fillets, shrimps, Greek salads, tzatziki dips and appetizers all accompanied with local wine, beers and cooling beverages.

Absolutely wonderful experience! The crew were so nice to us, we honestly felt like we were family. Booked a private catamaran for me and my wife’s honeymoon (fellas, the price may seem like a lot at first .. but it’s an experience that you and your partner will never forget and when you leave you’ll realize it was worth it) from the minute you board … drinks don’t stop, music of your choice. Valentino is so cool, Kris was awesome and our captain was the best ! He let us go at our own pace and was able to see all the main points in a timely manner and the crew took so many great photos of us (Valentino knows the angles.) When we had lunch, we couldn’t believe what the crew prepared! Fried Fish, Grilled Shrimp, Grilled Chicken, Greek Salad, Garlic Bread and more !!!! Once again, this experience was truly amazing, if you’re thinking about it trust me you won’t be disappointed.

We had a great time with our private catamaran tour, definitely worth the extra splurge for our family of four to have the boat all to ourselves. Our crew (Stavros, Ada, Hussein) were fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable, and very attentive to making sure we had drinks, towels etc. We went swimming in the caldera, snorkeling in clear waters near white beach, saw some sea caves, and swimming again in red beach. Lunch was delicious: greek salad, pasta marinara, grilled shrimp, fried flounder, and grilled chicken plus open bar. This was our best day of the trip, and we highly recommend it.

A Must Do in Santorini

We had an exceptional time during our day cruise. The entire crew was wonderful, assisting us with anything we wanted or needed. We were provided drinks of our choosing during the entire trip (wine, beer, soda, water, etc.), and we enjoyed the most delicious meal - from grilled shrimp, chicken, and fish to Greek salad and pasta - it was phenomenal! There were only two of us, and we were celebrating our engagement, and I have to say - the private tour is worth the extra cost, which was reinforced to us as we passed similar boats crowded with people that seemed quite crammed. We were able to choose the route we wanted to take, including the stops along the way. There were stops to jump off and swim at multiple locations, and we stopped for pictures at many places as well. Really, the entire day was incredible, and it was absolutely one of the top highlights of our time in Santorini. I highly recommend Spirikados - they provided us with an afternoon of perfection!
