Full description

Book a private day or sunset sailboat trip to the caldera of Santorini and discover the beauty of the Aegean Sea in a completely different way. Enjoy the sun and sea breeze as you venture to spots like Red Beach and Black Mountain. Lunch and an open bar are also included in your trip. For the day cruise that offers you a unique chance to admire Santorini's beauty under the full sun, set sail in the deep blue waters of the island starting from the Red Beach. Stop for a swim, then continue for photos at White Beach.

Enjoy a swim in the hidden coves of the Black Mountain at the southern part of the island, then enter the caldera just below the Venetian Light House. Sail across the cliff and head towards the volcanic hot springs.

Once anchored, a delicious lunch is served on board with wine. Savor seafood, chicken fillet, grilled sausages, traditional Greek delicacies and dips, veggie rice, Greek salad, and dessert before continuing the adventure.

Opt for the sunset cruise to enjoy all of the same features as the day cruise but in the impressive beauty and colors of the sunset. Exploit your senses as you enjoy your dinner during the golden hour.

It was good activity, sailing around in private cruise. The hosts were really good , cooked us really good meal. showed us around the places in boat. The boat was not able to park on any of the beach or shores, as the bottom part underneath boat was big. But that wasn't really necessary as we were enjoying the view from boat.

From the tranfers to and from the hotel to a Great captain and crew the day trip was amazing from start to finish. Food on board was one of the best meals in Greece. Seen the locations and got to snorkel and swim and all in a great boat. Highly recommendable to sail on the ocean King.

The experience on this boat was absolutely incredible! The day started with a hotel pick up and a trip down the cable car in Thira to meet the sailboat. We started by sailing around the volcanic islands and learned about their geological history. We then took a swim there (beware—the volcanic sulfur will stain a light swimsuit forever!) where the water was toasty warm. We then visited Therasia island and finished with lunch and another swim under the cliffs of Oia. Several things to note 1) the team that operates the boat is incredible…friendly, attentive but easy-going, and fantastic sailors, 2) lunch was delicious and fresh and accompanied by beer and wine throughout the trip, 3) we ACTUALLY sailed, which added excitement to the day that I don’t think one would get on some other vessels, and learned about sailing. We were on our honeymoon and this was perfectly intimate. Would also be great for a family/small group. Cannot recommend any higher!
