Select a morning or sunset cruise when you book. Then, on the day, depart your Santorini hotel by air-conditioned minivan and travel to the jetty for your catamaran cruise.

Meet your professional skipper and crew, and find a comfortable spot on the deluxe modern catamaran. Then, sit back and admire Santorini’s caldera and sugar-cube clifftop houses as your vessel pulls away from dock. Relax and enjoy the sea breezes, and take snaps of the views as your catamaran cuts through the waves of the Aegean Sea. As you sail, enjoy the unlimited Santorini wine, Greek beers or sodas available from the onboard bar.

After a short sail across the south part of the island, stop at the Red Beach. Pause here and enjoy time to swim, snorkel or simply sunbathe on the decks.Then, drop anchor at the hot springs beside Nea Kameni, Santorini’s ancient volcano. Step ashore and submerge yourself in the warm pools, whose waters are thought to have medicinal powers that help alleviate skin and bone conditions.

Back aboard, cruise along the coast to Santorini’s southern beaches. Head for the White Beach, and, if you wish, leave the boat to swim in the crystal waters. If you fancy checking out the undersea life, use the supplied snorkeling equipment and set off in search of colorful fish and other underwater sights.

Afterward, return to deck for a delicious lunch or dinner, depending on the cruise time you’ve chosen. Dig into an enticing selection of pork and grilled chicken, Greek salad, pasta salad, fresh bread and fruit.

Then start out on your return journey. If you’ve chosen the sunset cruise, soak up the sight of one of Santorini’s magical sunsets. Snap pictures or just enjoy the moment as the sun sinks below the horizon in a blaze of orange, gold and pink.

Lastly, dock back at the jetty and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

A must do in Santorini! Our boat was beautiful and spacious. The crew members were very pleasant and filled in history about Santorini here and there. Plenty of opportunities to swim/ snorkel and the sunset is simply breathtaking.

Must do in Santorini!

Definitely a must-do in Santorini - the boat was great - very comfortable, spacious and max capacity adhered to. The sun beds are super comfortable. The crew was amazing - especially Joanna who took the time to explain a bit of history of the islands to us and some scenic spots. Lots of opportunities to swim/snorkel, and if you didn’t want to it was perfectly fine to relax on the sun beds and you wouldn’t even feel like you’re waiting for the snorkellers to finish because it’s just so relaxing! Dinner on board was fun and the itinerary is planned out well. You head back right after sunset. Great experience and really enjoyed ourselves on this tour!

Isidora, Costas and the crew were awesome, started right off with welcoming us aboard and making the place feel like home. All along the way they pointed out information, kept the drinks pouring and cooked great food. The sunset was amazing and especially so because we had a smooth Captain and unobstructed views.

Best Day in Santorini

Excellent tour of the caldera, informational & fun. Our hostess Maria was terrific. Exceptional home cooked, traditional Greek lunch, prepared by Maria. Not the typical sandwich & chips. I’d go again for the lunch! Swam in the Aegean Sea which was quite thrilling. Lots of great photo opportunities. The entire excursion was worth every penny!

Can't Miss Experience on the Alma Libre!

The crew were amazing. We were on the Alma Libre with Kostas as the skipper. Antonios kept the mood lighthearted and fun throughout. He was very knowledgeable about the different parts of Santorini and surrounding islands/volcanoes, as well as historical impact of island. Lianna was one of the nicest people we met and went out of her way to learn about you and become friends. She was also a great cook! Despina was also great and the three made sure we always had a drink if we liked. The views and water were breathtaking. The food was delicious. The company was outstanding.
