Private Day Santorini Sailing Caldera Cruise

The private daytime cruise performs an authentic 5-hour sailing experience inside the unique caldera of Santorini.

Our yacht stands out for its combination of comfort, performance and mainly tranquility, since we try to avoid the overwhelming crowded places. Our crew is among the most experienced you can find in Santorini and will be willing to assist and respond to your questions.

The captain is at your disposal to ask for any route change and make santorini sailing caldera cruise an absolutely personalized experience. Moreover, this boat tour offers you the opportunity to steer the wheel on your own if you wish to and if the circumstances (weather and sea conditions) allow it.

On private cruises we can adjust the schedule according to your preference. We try to avoid most of the overcrowded and promoted places with lots of boats. We don’t like to do the standard touristy cruises unless we are asked to do so. We serve sea food but upon request we can provide you with a different lunch such as meat, as well as vegetarian or vegan courses. The food and drinks are included.

A regular sailing tour route will depart from Vlychada port on the south of the island, then you will be able to witness the famous red and white beach, since we pass by and make a small stop for pictures. Entering the caldera, we overpass the lighthouse and then visit the hot springs. Our main stop will be in Thirassia, where you will be able to swim and snorkel and then enjoy a tasty lunch.
