The sunsets on Santorini are truly magical and the focus of many paintings and pictures. Rather than heading to Oia to see the sunset like most travelers, consider taking a Santorini sunset cruise. The boat sails around the Greek island, giving you a chance to catch many of the sites on the island from a unique angle. It will also stop and provide you with an incredible view of the sunset, a perfect culmination to your cruise. You will not have to worry about competing with the other tourists for the perfect view of the sunset, as there will only be between 10 and 14 passengers on the boat with you.
Santorini sailing cruises at sunset start and end at the Amoudi port, which is in the village of Oia. During your trip, you will have thirty minutes in which to swim at the famous sulfur hot springs. The boat will sail close to the volcano and the famous cliffs of the caldera, giving you a chance to capture some stunning photographs and see more of the beautiful sites unique to the island. Then, you can warm up in the hot springs and take a mud bath. The minerals and other benefits of the volcanic mud are meant to provide you with a healthy glow.
Then, you spend more time on the boat during your Santorini catamaran sunset tour, sailing towards the next stop at the White Beach. Before you get there, you will get a chance to see the famous sites of Akrotiri from the sea. Akrotiri was an ancient Minoan city that was destroyed by the volcano, only to be discovered in the mid 20th century. You can also see the Indian Face Rock and the Lighthouse as you sail close to the southern parts of the island, including the village of Aspronisi.
The boat will stop at the White Beach for an hour. You will have a chance to swim in the sparkling blue waters of the Aegean Sea and walk along the beach. There is also the chance to snorkel, so that you can see the sea life underneath the ocean. During this stop, you also will have a chance to eat a delicious barbeque meal that features many Greek delicacies. The meal includes three choices of barbeque: chicken filet, pork souvlaki, or a vegetarian option. There is also ntolmadakia, Greek salad, bread, Italian pasta, and of course, tzatziki. Dessert includes fruits with honey and cinnamon.
During your Santorini sunset cruise, you also have the chance to imbibe in plenty of famous local wine, which is made in the traditional winemaking art that has been on the island since ancient times. You can drink as much as you want, especially since you get picked up and dropped off at your hotel. You also have as much water, beer, ouzo and soft drinks.
Everything you need is provided for you during this Santorini catamaran tour. You will have a chance to experience Santorini from another view for an experience you will long remember.

Thanks to Alex for the wonderful tour in Santorini and also to Stan, our guide. They showed us the best sights at the same time allowed us to take pictures and buy items along the way. Filipinos love pictures and make selfies. It was a relaxing experience but the views were breathtaking. Both Alex and Stan and Greek people we’ve encountered were very kind! Maraming salamat sa inyo.
We booked a sightseeing tour with company Top Santorini Tours based on the website reviews and we couldn’t have been happier.
I would definitely go on other tours with this company and recommend them to friends. On the minibus, we were able to go places and see things a large bus just couldn’t do. Thanks again Konstantinos! We had a great time.
We booked a private tour of the island so that we could see everything that we wanted to. Our guide was Elena and she was the best!!!! Can’t say enough about her. She told us information and history of every site that we went to, she was always there to take photos of the group of us and she even quizzed us later on what she told us!!! She made sure the tour was exactly to our liking and even went over the time that we paid for to make sure we saw everything. Our driver was excellent too!!! I wish I remembered his name!
