Santorini Half Day Cruise   

 Although driving and walking around Santorini provides a great way to experience the island, there are other ways to have a unique and memorable adventure on the island. Santorini sailing tours offer unforgettable experiences with stunning views.

As you sail around the Caldera, there will be plenty of opportunities to snap photos of the famous villages of Santorini as well as the Caldera itself. The Caldera features many dwellings built right into the volcanic rock for an interesting photograph. There are also many interesting looking rocks formed from the lava as it cooled sitting around the island, ready for a photo opportunity.

As you sail around the island, you also will have the chance to snorkel or swim in the bay. The boat will also stop outside the Red and White beaches so that you have a chance to take some time to sunbathe and walk around on the beach. Of course, you can also spend time swimming in these famous beaches. As part of the Santorini boat tours, you also have the chance to swim in the warm waters of the Hot Springs of the island. These are sulfuric hot springs made from the nearby volcano.

You will also get a chance to see many of the famous sites of the southern part of the island during your Santorini catamaran cruise. The boat will head by the Indian Head Mountain and the Old Venetian lighthouse. You also circle around many of the islands that were formed by the volcano that sit in the caldera, including Nea Kameni and Palea.

Santorini sailing tours are the perfect way to simply relax and see the amazing views of the island and the Aegean Sea. You can drink some of the famous local wines made in the traditional way. You also will eat some delicious barbeque and Greek food, including Greek salad, tzatziki, and rigatoni saganaki. Learn how tzatziki is made by sitting through the cooking demonstration.

Santorini boat tours leave from the Vlichada Marini or Ammoudi Bay, depending on whether you wish to sail around during the day or take a romantic sunset cruise. On a Santorini catamaran cruise, you experience the beauty of the island with a small group of about 12 passengers. With such a small group, you can still have a romantic getaway, but you also have the chance to make new friends.

Whether you want to just soak in the sites as you indulge in delicious food and wine or you want to swim in the blue waters of the Aegean sea, a catamaran tour of Santorini is the perfect way to do it. There are sights and views of the island that can only be appreciated from the decks of a boat. With the perfect mixture of relaxation and adventure, a boat tour provides you a way to experience Santorini unlike any other.
